How do nurses use early warning scoring systems to detect and act on patient deterioration to ensure patient safety? A scoping review.

Int J Nurs Stud 2019 Mar 23;94:166-178. Epub 2019 Mar 23.

AVATAR group Menzies Health Institute Queensland, Griffith University, Gold Coast, Australia; HRB Clinical Research Facility Galway, National University of Ireland, Galway, University Hospital Galway, Ireland.

Background: Despite widespread adoption of rapid response systems and the use of various early warning scoring systems, the detection of patient deterioration remains suboptimal, leading to the development of potentially avoidable serious adverse events. Why this occurs has been the focus of many investigations, but the complexities around advancing understanding that leads to effective actions are less evident.

Objective: To better understand medical/surgical nurses use of early warning scoring systems. Read More

This practice, acknowledged by several guidelines for the step of UTI screening, is driven by a perception of the technique as being more convenient and less painful. However, our own experience led us to consider bag removal as a painful experience. Read More

The health care aide position in nursing homes: A comparative survey of nurses' and aides' perceptions.

Int J Nurs Stud 2019 Mar 18;94:98-106. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

The Cheryl Spencer Department of Nursing, Faculty of Social Welfare and Health Studies, University of Haifa, Mount Carmel, Haifa, 31905, Israel. Electronic address:

Background: The health care aide position embodies one of the most basic paradoxes of long-term care for older adults: those who have the most contact and most intensive interaction with nursing-home residents are also those having the least training, authority, and status within the system. They therefore hold one of the keys to quality care in many settings, especially nursing homes. In the absence of agreement on the position's roles, responsibilities, and authority, it is important to examine how the position is perceived by the key members in the long-term-care framework.

Participation of nurses and care workers in the decision-making process for people with dementia in Japan: Discussion paper.

Int J Nurs Stud 2019 Feb 26. Epub 2019 Feb 26.

Medical Education Center, Department of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Nutrition & Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan. Electronic address:

Numerous socio-legal factors make the process of surrogate decision-making for people living in dementia very complicated in Japan. In this discussion paper, we argue that the lack of early consultation between patients, surrogate decision-makers and healthcare providers and the overreliance of patients and their families on doctors to assume the decision-making role lead to healthcare practices that may not align with the patient's wishes. Further, we argue that lack of laws on surrogate decision-making, changing family structure and the liabilities associated with the care of people living with dementia contribute to the complexity of the decision-making process in Japan.

'Shitty nursing' - The new normal?

Int J Nurs Stud 2019 Mar 31;91:148-152. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

Department of Care Science, Faculty of Health and Society, Malmo University, Malmo, Sweden.

Our intention is most certainly not to offend any readers, for this term has been used in literature for more than one hundred years to describe bad situations, including those where events or people's behaviour are of a low standard.
