ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Stress can originate from many different unsatisfying work situations. Registered nurses working in municipal care have experience of work-related stress in different ways. AIM: The purpose of this study was to describe the work-related stress experienced by registered nurses caring for older people at municipal aged care facilities. METHODS: Qualitative semi-structured interviews according to Polit and Beck were carried out in clinical work at six different municipal aged care facilities in Sweden. Twelve registered nurses participated in the study. RESULTS: The results outlined in one main central theme: Feelings of inadequacy and dissatisfaction contribute to work-related stress and three categories: Difficulty coping with work tasks, Insufficient support, Work-related stress affects private lives. Areas identified were lack of time, staff shortages, high number of patients, lack of communication and teamwork in the working group, showing that inadequacy and dissatisfaction can contribute to work-related stress. This can contribute to work-related stress, and it can be a result of problems in the organizational and social work environment. CONCLUSION: This study showed the everyday experiences of registered nurses' stress at work. The reasons that registered nurses experience a heavy workload were found to be similar in several municipal care facilities. Future interventions should consider the areas of stress found in this study to reduce the risk of further increasing the work-related stress experienced by registered nurses working in municipal aged care.

ABSTRACT

AIMS: This study aimed to identify recommendations for quality nursing care provision, focusing on the possibilities of delivering telehealth nursing at the national level in the Czech Republic. BACKGROUND: The significant growth in the use of technology in health care has changed the environment for patient care and how health care is provided. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the requirement for telemedicine use in everyday clinical practice. EVALUATION: A literature review aims to find guidelines, recommendations, manuals, standards or consensus papers published in 2017-2022. KEY ISSUES: In total, 12 guidelines were identified. Based on a critical evaluation carried out by two experts, the World Health Organization guideline focused on digital interventions to strengthen the health system has been identified. This guideline was evaluated to be of the highest quality and in line with the Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluations methodology. CONCLUSION: The provision of telemedicine nursing interventions is currently limited at the national level and is not entirely accepted in reimbursement yet. The interprofessional collaboration will be initiated to make recommendations for specific patient groups. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING MANAGEMENT: Selected guidelines can be recommended for national adoption to set up and support nursing interventions in telemedicine, including nursing management settings.

ABSTRACT

AIM: The aim of this study was to understand the lived experience of altruism and sacrifices among Swedish nurses working in intensive care units (ICU) during the COVID-19 pandemic. DESIGN: This was a descriptive phenomenological study. METHODS: The study was conducted between June 2020 and March 2021 and included 20 nurses who were directly involved in the ICU care of COVID-19 patients in Sweden during the pandemic. The text transcripts were analysed using Malterud's Systematic Text Condensation. FINDINGS: The analysis revealed four themes. The work situation changed from 1 day to another-the nurses were brutally confronted with a new and highly demanding situation. Adapting to the chaotic situation-despite fear, anguish and exhaustion, the nurses adapted to the new premises. They shouldered the moral responsibility and responded to the needs of the patients and the health care system since they had the competence. Being confronted with ethical and moral challenges-the nurses were overwhelmed by feelings of helplessness and inadequacy because despite how hard they worked, they were still unable to provide care with dignity and of acceptable quality. The importance of supporting each other-collegiality was fundamental to the nurses' ability to cope with the situation. CONCLUSIONS: Taken together, being exposed to a constantly changing situation, facing the anguish and misery of patients, families, and colleagues, and being confronted with a conflict between the moral obligation to provide care of high quality and the possibility to fulfil this commitment resulted in suffering among the nurses. Collegial back-up and a supportive culture within the caring team were important for the nurses' endurance. IMPACT: The study contributes an understanding of nurses' lived experience of working during the COVID-19 pandemic and highlights the importance of protecting and preparing nurses and nursing organisation for potential future crises.

ABSTRACT

AIM: The aim of the study was to examine the effect of perceived organizational support, accountability and nurses' characteristics on missed nursing care under the impact of COVID-19. DESIGN: A cross-sectional design was used to describe and predict nurses' characteristics. METHODS: A sample of 536 Registered Nurses participated in the study from eight hospitals in different health sectors in Jordan (three public hospitals, three private hospitals and two teaching hospitals). RESULTS: Communication problems had the highest impact on missed nursing care, compared with labour resources and material resources reasons. Higher patient: nurse ratio aggravated by COVID-19 pandemic, years of experience, satisfaction with the income, perception of accountability and organizational support were among the factors associated with the levels of missed nursing care.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: As Japan undergoes population aging, nursing care workers play an important role in supporting older adults in the community, which has been particularly critical during COVID-19 pandemic. However, the knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) among nursing care workers regarding COVID-19 have not been fully elucidated. METHODS: A self-administered questionnaire survey was conducted in June 2020 among 481 nursing care workers in the nursing care facilities in Aichi, Japan. We assessed COVID-19-related KAP scores of nursing care workers, and compared them by age, sex, and years of experience. RESULTS: A total of 481 nursing care workers responded to the survey. Out of a maximum of 10 points, the mean (standard deviations) knowledge, attitude, and practice scores were 6.86 (1.45), 7.11 (1.42), and 7.40 (1.89), respectively. Comparisons between the KAP scores revealed significantly higher knowledge scores among older workers (p < 0.001) and significantly higher knowledge scores (p = 0.002) and practice scores (p = 0.033) among workers with more than 20 years of working experience. CONCLUSIONS: The findings revealed that older age and a longer duration of experience were associated with higher COVID-19-related knowledge and practice scores. To better support older adults, it is essential to improve the education system for care workers and to provide environments for delivering necessary information rapidly.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: Demonstrate safe and cost effective care of early kidney and pancreas post-transplant complications through the Advanced Care at Home (ACH) inpatient home-based care program. Method(s): 5 abdominal transplant patients were admitted into ACH over a 1-month period. Each recipient underwent transplant less than a year prior to admission. These recipients received ACH and transplant standard of care including 24-hour access to a physician-led virtual monitoring center, telehealth and home-based provider visits, skilled nursing care, rehabilitation, nutrition, pharmacy, laboratory, imaging, social work, and other individualized healthcare services in the comfort of the patients own home. Result(s): 5 Recipients, all within 1 year of transplant were admitted with diagnoses of CMV Viremia, Bacteremia, AKI, pancreas rejection, COVID 19 and volume overload. Two patients required escalation back to the brick-and-mortar hospital, one for a biopsy to rule out rejection, the second for new onset sepsis and progressive renal failure requiring hemodialysis. A total of 33 brick and mortar bed days were saved, freeing hospital capacity during a time of critical bed shortage. None of the patients were re-admitted within 30 days of discharge from ACH. Conclusion(s): Advanced care at home is a safe alternative to the traditional Brick an Mortar(B &M) hospitalization for patients admitted with complications post abdominal solid organ transplant. We improved bed capacity in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic and minimized cost associated with a traditional B & M stay.

ABSTRACT

SESSION TITLE: Not the Normal Host: Infections Still Matter SESSION TYPE: Rapid Fire Original Inv PRESENTED ON: 10/17/2022 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm PURPOSE: Utilization of ECMO support for refractory cardiogenic, and respiratory failure has increased exponentially over the last 20 years. The advent of miniaturized and portable machines has led to a shift of cannulation strategies in the operating room/cath lab to the bedside. Transitioning to bedside cannulation has been previously reported as safe, with minimal risk for mortality or catheter site infections. However, bedside cannulations in the critically ill crashing patient raises concern for sterility. The aim of this study was to assess the risk of ECMO cannula site infections in bedside vs operating room/catheterization suite. METHODS: It is a retrospective single institution case series review of 52 adult and pediatric patients who were required either Veno-Venous (VV) or Veno-Arterial (VA) ECMO. Data gathering was used to quantify the rate of catheter site infections after initiation of extracorporeal support. Catheter site infections were defined as localized erythema, fluctuance, or purulence from the cannula site within 7 days of of ECMO cannula placement. RESULTS: A total of 42 (81%) pts had bedside cannulation, and the other 10 (19%), were done in IR suite/cath lab. The total number of catheter site infections was 1 (2.4%) in the bedside cannulation group. There were no infections in the non-bedside cannulation groups. 13 (30%) of the bedside cannulations, and 3 (30%) of the non-bedside cannulation group were on antibiotics during or prior to cannula insertion. CONCLUSIONS: Current literature suggests that the prevalence of infections on ECMO is 10-12%,. Traditionally, this has predisposed most cannulations to be performed in the surgical setting rather than at bedside. During the recent COVID pandemic, the frequency of bedside cannulation for ECMO had increased and was not associated with significant morbidity, and mortality. The risk of infection from the catheter site had also been determined to be minimal to none. From the data gathered above, it can be safely assumed that the risk of catheter site infection with bedside cannulation is minimal. However, the major contributing factor to decreased infection risk appears to be meticulous cannula site nursing care. The current ECMO nursing protocol utilized at our hospital required twice daily dressing changes with stringent chlorhexidine cleanses prior to redressing. The only case of catheter site infection we experienced was when this protocol was deviated. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: Utilizations of bedside ECMO cannulation techniques carries minimal risk for catheter site infections. It is important to state that nursing driven protocols for cannula site dressing changes, has one of the biggest implications on the risk of catheter site infections. Therefore, with the employment of appropriate nursing protocols, the concern for catheter site infections should not preclude the decision to proceed with bedside cannulation.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Coronaviruses belong to the family of Coronaviridae, which includes several types of viruses that are capable of contaminating and causing respiratory infections in mammals such as bats, camels, Asian masked civets, various species of birds and humans. Aim: The aim of this retrospective study is to investigate the management of patients with COVID-19 requiring high quality nursing care in order to improve patient outcomes, along with high demands on workload and human resources. Methodology: An extensive review of the relevant literature of the last 15 years was performed via electronic databases (Google Scholar, Pubmed, Medline, Scopus, the Hellenic Academic Libraries Association -HEAL link) and scientific journals (English and Greek) using specific key words. Results: COVID-19 sometimes causes different symptomatology in patients, resulting in the need for an individualised patient care plan. Nurses as part of their continuing education for COVID-19 should be able, through knowledge of the pathophysiology and clinical manifestations of the disease, to diagnose active and potential problems in patients so that they can be resolved by implementing appropriate interventions. Conclusions: The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a major social and health crisis with a significant number of patients with severe disease requiring hospitalization, even in intensive care units, with no human and material resources readily available for their adequate and effective treatment and management.

ABSTRACT

Background: E-learning refers to the use of new technologies to deliver distance learning programs. This mode of learning is also considered one of the innovative teaching/learning methods best suited to the current conditions, which entail the suspension of face-to-face courses due to the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure continuity of training, overcome learning difficulties and increase student autonomy and motivation. Our study focuses on this teaching model as an example of an apprenticeship contract, often adopted in technical, vocational, work-linked training. The aim of this study is to measure the perception of this learning contract through e-learning and its impact on learning among multi-skilled nursing students in semester four (S4) of the Professional License of the Higher Institute of Nursing and Health Techniques of Casablanca within the framework of the course of nursing care in psychiatry. Methods: A group of 58 students participated in a survey conducted by questionnaire, with a response rate of 86.20%. Results: The results revealed that the students had a positive perception regarding the use of the learning contract;according to them, the learning contract approach increases autonomy, motivation and the application of the theoretical courses in practice. Conclusion: The learning contract offers several advantages as a learning strategy and this has been implemented in different nursing education contexts, which may encourage nursing educators to use this contract more widely in theoretical and also practical teaching. © 2022 Lamiri et al.

ABSTRACT

Globally, life expectancy is increasing, as is the need for effective care responses to chronic health conditions, global emergencies and health disparities. Alongside this is a shortage of skilled caregivers. This four-country qualitative study investigates the views of ‘care’ and ‘care careers’ of Generation Z (the next generation to join the workforce). Four cross-cultural themes emerged: conceptualising care;objects and subjects of care;recognising the challenges of care;and appreciating care work. Discussed in relation to Tronto’s analysis of care, these themes illuminate Generation Z’s commitment to care and highlight the need for organisational and political action to attract young people to care careers.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: The organization of pediatric services is essential in the current process of confronting the COVID-19 pandemic. Objective: To describe, from a nursing perspective, the social representation on management in the organization of pediatric hospital services for the care of patients suspected of COVID-19. Methods: A qualitative study of transcendental phenomenological methodological orientation was carried out at Octavio de la Concepción de la Pedraja Pediatric Hospital from Holguín, Cuba, between January and April 2021. The knowledge acquired from the experience of nurses, five supervisors, three area heads and eight ward chiefs, selected by nonprobabilistic sampling, was integrated. The following phases were used: descriptive, structural and discussion. The descriptive phase consisted of three stages: choice of technique, semistructured interview and elaboration of the description. The structural phase had the following stages: reading, determination of the central topic and expression in scientific language. In the results discussion phase, the results were related to the conclusions and findings of researchers to understand the possible differences or similarities for further enhancement. Results: Four categories emerged from the data analysis: design of nursing care protocols for COVID-19 positive and suspect patients;reorganization, recruitment and training of personnel;organization of working groups according to clinical picture and rapid test or PCR results;and general measures. Conclusions: The organization of nursing care services by groups avoided the collapse of the nursing human resource and guaranteed the availability of beds, as well as staff own safety and patient safety, to minimize in-hospital transmissibility. © 2022, Editorial Ciencias Medicas.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: The disease caused by coronavirus-19 (COVID-19) has been stated as a global epidemic by the WHO. The COVID-19 pandemic adds many risk factors to maternal mental health during the perinatal period. The impact of anxiety during pregnancy is adverse obstetric consequences such as premature birth, inadequate antenatal care, requests for elective cesarean delivery, low APGAR scores of infants, and postpartum depression. Nursing interventions to overcome anxiety can be done through spiritual and religious intervention approaches. One of the spiritual interventions for the Muslim population to improve religious coping is Qur’anic Bibliotherapy (QB) as Islamic bibliotherapy. AIM: This study aimed to explore the use of QB interventions for pregnant women experiencing anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic. METHODS: A qualitative exploratory study was conducted to explore the experience of the intervention given to the informant. The qualitative samples were ten respondents with moderate-to-severe anxiety levels. The anxiety instrument used was the Zung Anxiety Scale. RESULTS: The themes obtained from in-depth interviews with semi-structured interviews were recognizing COVID-19 and its perceived impact, the impetus for changing resilience to the COVID-19 pandemic, parents’ role, and the benefits of QB for pregnant women in the COVID-19 pandemic. CONCLUSIONS: QB encourages informants’ positive thinking, feeling, spiritual, and attitude patterns. QB can be used as a complementary Islamic intervention for health workers, especially nurses, in providing nursing care to Muslim patients.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to provide foundational knowledge on nursing tasks performed on patients with COVID-19 in a nationally-designated inpatient treatment unit. METHODS: This study employs both quantitative and qualitative approaches. The quantitative method investigated the content and frequency of nursing tasks for 460 patients (age ≥ 18 y, 57.4% men) from January 20, 2020, to September 30, 2021, by analyzing hospital information system records. Qualitative data were collected via focus group interviews. The study involved interviews with three focus groups comprising 18 nurses overall to assess their experiences and perspectives on nursing care during the pandemic from February 3, 2022, to February 15, 2022. The data were examined with thematic analysis. RESULTS: Overall, 49 different areas of nursing tasks (n = 130,687) were identified based on the Korean Patient Classification System for nurses during the study period. Among the performed tasks, monitoring of oxygen saturation and measuring of vital signs were considered high-priority. From the focus group interview, three main themes and eleven sub-themes were generated. The three main themes are "Experiencing eventfulness in isolated settings," "All-around player," and "Reflections for solutions." CONCLUSION: During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is imperative to ensure adequate staffing levels, compensation, and educational support for nurses. The study further propose improving guidelines for emerging infectious diseases and patient classification systems to improve the overall quality of patient care.

ABSTRACT

AIM: To describe the experience of relatives of residents with dementia residing in locked-down nursing homes during the first outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, concerning their relationships with nurses and the nursing care applied. METHODS: A qualitative descriptive study was carried out and purposive sampling was applied. Participants were first- and second-degree relatives of residents with dementia, who lived permanently in a nursing home and who were admitted prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Sixteen participants, of which 10 were women (mean age 57.1 years), participated in the study. Data were collected through in-depth interviews and reflective notes, using a digital platform. An inductive thematic analysis was carried out. This study was approved by the University Research Ethics Committee and followed the COREQ guidelines. The Guba and Lincoln criteria (credibility, transferability, dependability, and confirmability) were applied for quality control. RESULTS: Families' relationships with nurses before the first wave relied on closeness and involvement in care. Families had difficulty maintaining a close relationship with nurses due to turnover and lack of time. The nursing care applied in the first wave resulted in limited family access to the nursing home, limited contact time with residents, and limited close physical contact. CONCLUSIONS: The first outbreak has affected the relationships among relatives and nurses in nursing homes. Changes should be made in the organization of care within nursing homes in order to adapt to restrictions due to the pandemic.

ABSTRACT

As a large multi-disciplinary community palliative care team, together we have experienced a whole range of unexpected and unprecedented demands as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In March 2021 to mark a point in time when the nation came to stand still, in 'locking down', and when our world changed irrevocably, the St Christopher's Community Palliative Care Team held an extraordinary multi-disciplinary team meeting to reflect on the previous year. We gave space and time to discuss the care and support we have provided to specific individuals who have had a personal impact on us as human beings and professionals working in extremely challenging circumstances. Each discipline from within the multi-disciplinary team was invited to present at least one case, and discuss this person's story, and their own story within this, to consider the impact this person and their care had for them, and their learning from this. Within this meeting we heard contributions from nurses, doctors, arts therapists, social workers, the hospice chaplain, a cognitive behavioural therapist, and the rehabilitative allied health professionals. In this presentation, by layering the St Christopher's Lantern Model of Palliative and End of Life Care Nursing onto each story, we present a number of the case studies we discussed, which highlight the unique contribution of palliative care professionals at a unique point in the history of a global pandemic. The Lantern Model (Mitchell, 2021;Overview of the Lantern Model - see: https://cdn.ps.emap.com/wp-content/ uploads/sites/3/2021/03/Overview-of-the-Lantern-Model.pdf) supports practitioners to be curious in relation to the key tenets that shape and guide the care being provided, the context of care, the personal prerequisites required to provide care, the organisational conditions required to support care, the processes of nursing care, and the possible outcomes of care. Therefore, we will draw on the components of the Lantern Model to highlight and celebrate the work of a specialist palliative care team at a unique time in history.
