This survey has only thirty-two questions which are analyzed each year. It is given to patients randomly throughout the year, collected by those who receive training in giving the survey. Some questions that are asked are in the category of composite topics which include; nurse communication, doctor communication, responsiveness of hospital staff, pain management, questions about medications, discharge information, and cleanliness of the hospital. This is all done to show the patient the true quality of the hospital, and the general effect on the
The questionnaire included both close and open-ended questions and, comprised three sections in order to assess the following variables:- a) socio-demographic information, b) knowledge of nurses on the initial assessment of critically ill patient, and c) challenges face on care of critically ill patient. Observation check list was used to asses in getting more information practically which is not possible to capture by using questionnaire. In this regard, the researcher observed how nurses give care to patients directly during their nurses activities. The checklist consisted of four columns. The first column was for serial number of activities, second column was for skilled observed by researcher, third column for performance of nurses which contain two parts Yes and No and the last column for remarks.
The NIS includes charge information for all patients, regardless of payer, including persons covered by Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, and the uninsured. It is intended to inform decision making in regard to health and healthcare at the national and regional levels. Through NIS data, researchers and policy makers can estimate national trends in healthcare utilization, access, charges, quality, and outcomes. With the sampling frame covering more than 95% of the U.S. population, the NIS is the largest all-payer inpatient care database which has been made publicly available in the U.S. since the 1988 data year. Moreover, beginning in 2012, the NIS was redesigned from the “sample of hospitals” to the “sample of discharges” which are from all hospitals participating in HCUP.
It is based on information from the nursing health history and physical assessment. Goals are mutually set with the client and family, and the nursing care plan is evaluated and modified according to the client’s needs. Testing the criteria: criteria must be valid and reliable. A valid criterion measures what it is intended to. A reliable criterion produces consistent results when used by the same person over time or by a different person.

For example, there was a resident that usually doesn’t enjoy waking up in the morning.
Locate a nursing research journal article that has been written within the last five years and discuss the following questions on your discussion post. Attach the article to the research post. •Does the review of literature build on the research problem, purpose, and question for the research study? The nursing research article titled “Nurses’ personal and ward Accountability and missed nursing care: A cross sectional study” by Srulovici and Drach-Zahavy (2017) adequately communicated the research problem. The researchers described what they did and what they learned from the research problem, purpose, and question.
Improvement of the quality and safety of health care depends on the measurement of these outcomes, so, there is an extra need for clinicians to have a comprehension of research methodologies so that they can design and implement effective quality assurance programmes using valid and reliable methods (10, 11). as well as quality appraisal is an important issue in systematic reviews(12). There is considerable debate over using which quality criteria are appropriate to assess qualitative studies. Assessment of the Quality in qualitative research can be done using the same large concepts of validity (or trustworthiness) used for quantitative research, but these need to be put in a different contextual framework according the aims of qualitative research(13). Consequently, skills of critical appraisal is included in formal postgraduate research training
62 patients who satisfy the inclusion criteria were recruited during the study period. Details about demographic, laboratory charges, nursing charges, physician charges and, cost of oral hypoglycemic agents received by study patients were collected from the patient’s medical sheet note. Information related to cost of each parameter were collected from the in-patient pharmacy as well as financial department. All of the earlier mentioned data were assembled in a specific pre-design collection form. The assembled data was introduced to cost
Conceptual Framework: Two conceptual domains were used in this framework: nurses’ job satisfaction and organizational environment. For nurses’ job satisfaction, a synthesis of Stamp’s work (1997) and related literature was conducted and resulted in conceptualizing six components of nurses’ job satisfaction. These are autonomy, payment, task requirements, organization policies, interaction, and professional status (Stamps, 1997). The second domain was organizational environment. Stringer’s six dimensions of organizational environment (2002) were used to conceptualize nurses’ perception regarding organizational environment.
