NR439 Week 3 Problem : PICOT :Evidence Search (PPE)


Problem/PICOT/Evidence Search (PPE) Worksheet Name: Kimberly MortonDate:   1/27/2020“This assignment was originally submitted in NR439-0 during the 7/2019 session with Professor Charrier”
Criteria  The quality priority I have chosen is patient satisfaction in the dialysis unit population.   I selected this topic because there seems to be some dissatisfaction in my unit from patients with their daily treatments.  They feel that we are always short of staff and that the staff is always changing due to a turnover rate with staff.  They also complain that the T.V’s are always broke and the chairs are uncomfortable to sit in for 3-4 hours.  I feel that it is our responsibility to not only provide great dialysis care so they can live their lives but the treatment itself should not be such a horrible experience since they are there 3 days a week. 
Clinical Nursing Practice Problem  Select and identify ONLY one quality or safety clinical priority area from the assignment guidelines practice scenario. Summarize why you believe the nursing practice problem/issue is the most important.  Summarize your rationale (why) for choosing the problem.    
Clinical Nursing  PICOT Question  Using the NR439 Guide for Writing PICOT Questions and Examples located in the assignment guidelines, write out your PICOT question. Include the PICOT letters in your question.   In dialysis patients (P), would better staffing, comfortable chairs,  better TV ‘s, and providing snacks (I) improve patient satisfaction compared to the dialysis clinic now(O) over 6 months(T)? 
Define PICOT Elements  Define each of the      PICOT elements from your question above.    P– (patient population/patients of interest):   Dialysis patients                               I– (Intervention): Proper Staffing,  more comfortable chairs,  working personal televisions, and provide snacks. C– (Comparison): Dialysis settings now  O– (Measurable outcome): Positive patient satisfaction interviews and surveys  T– (Time frame in months): 6 months to observe patient satisfaction to changes in facility.  
Evidence Retrieval Process and Summary   Using only the Chamberlain College of Nursing library:      “Satisfaction with a healthcare service has been defined as the quality  of an     
offered service as perceived by the patient,  and is a performance indicator of healthcare organizations.  Such satisfaction is a top consideration when measuring healthcare and services to fulfill  patients expectations and values” (Sanabria  2017).  Patient satisfaction is an important part of healthcare.  If the

Implications of the Evidence Summarize what you learned from the evidence. Summarize why you believe the nursing evidence-based practice committee should focus their next research project on the nursing practice problem.   The nursing evidence-based committee should choose my project because it has been proven to be beneficial to ensure patient satisfaction.  Patients are happier and do better with their dialysis treatments. They are more compliant and tend to participate more in their healthcare.  When we base our unit environment on both staff satisfaction and patient satisfaction everyone tends to benefit because they are usually asking for the same  things like better staffing and a nice unit that has working TV’s and comfortable chairs. Not only would the patients  be happy but the staff would have less stress on them because patients would not complain every treatment about these issues leading to a more calmer environment for all.
