Summary of Clinical Issue (200-250 words)
The medication administration process is a crucial aspect of patient safety” (Umeda,2020). Nurses play a vital role in the delivery of
safe, quality healthcare. In the fast-paced environment of the hospital, nurses are interrupted hundreds of times per day. These
interruptions can have a detrimental effect on patient safety during medication administration. Identifying and reducing risks is as
important as acknowledging medication errors after they occur. “A better understanding of how interruptions in nurse’s work affect
clinical decision-making is critical, and policies can be developed to decrease interruptions and the likelihood of error” (McGinley,
2010).
The usage of signage, patient and staff education, and meeting the patients’ needs before medication administration is some of the
interventions that will aid in reducing medication administration interruptions.
In order to test this theory, the question will be formulated using the PICOT method. The PICOT is a helpful approach for
summarizing research questions that explore the effect of the intervention. By utilizing this method, the researchers’ purpose is to
decrease interruptions by implementing effective interventions.
Well-written
PICOT Question:
P- Hospitalized adult patients limit this more, make it more specific to describe the unit you want to implement the change in.
I- Usage of signage, patient and staff education, and meeting the patients’ needs what will the staff be educated on? How different
will they meet the patient’s needs?
C- Currrent practice of? no intervention be mindful that if the current practice already includes the interventions above, then this
project will be deemed unethical as it puts patient health at risk.
O- Decrease interruptions during medication administration specify how you will measure this? Is this a measure of how the
nurses/patients perceive the rate of interruptions?
T- Throughout their hospital stay - state how long you will plan, implement and measure the impact of the changes you plan to do.
