Using semi-structured interviews, 23 CNAs from New York State nursing homes were asked to identify factors they felt were components of good care. Interviews were recorded, transcribed verbatim, and coded using open coding. Three themes emerged: (1) technical aspects of care; (2) care of the environment; and (3) a little bit more...

BACKGROUND: Nursing home admission policies are one driver of increased and earlier gastrostomy placement, a procedure that is not always medically or ethically indicated among patients needing short-term nutrition support. This important clinical decision should be based upon patient prognosis, goals, and needs. We compared nursing home enteral nutrition-related admission policies in New York City and other regions of the United States. We also explored motivations for these policies...

Horizontal violence (HV) is prevalent in nursing. However, few strategies are identified to address this phenomenon that undermines communication and patient safety. Nurses at an acute care hospital implemented multiple interventions to address HV resulting in increased knowledge of hospital policies regarding HV, and significantly (p < .05) less HV prevalence than was reported by nurses in other organizations throughout New York State. With the aid and oversight of nursing professional development specialists, evidence-based interventions to address HV were developed including policies, behavioral performance reviews, and staff/manager educational programs...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To understand and interpret the experiences of nurse-family members when a family member or loved one is hospitalised in a critical condition. BACKGROUND: Having a family member hospitalised with a critical illness is a traumatic stressor, often with long-term sequelae. Providing holistic care for family members who are also nurses makes the provision of care more complex because of their professional expertise; yet few studies have explored this issue...
