New E-book Helps Nurses Minimize Hospital-Acquired Infections
December 4, 2013  | 
Aurora, CO – American Sentinel University’s new e-book, ‘Are You Prepared to Identify and Prevent the Three Infections That Make Up Two-Thirds of All Health Care Associated Infections?’ helps nurses build the clinical skills to minimize the occurrence of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). This e-book serves as a health care professional’s go-to resource for basic intervention methods and prevention measures for a successful nursing career. It is available for free download at the end of the article.

“Our e-book was created to serve as a guide about the HAI risk factors and basic prevention measures that every nurse should know to help prevent more than 65 percent of hospital-acquired infections,” says Judy Burckhardt, Ph.D., MAEd, MSN, RN, dean, nursing programs at American Sentinel University. “Nurses can use their clinical knowledge to recognize conditions that might cause a complication or breakdown in care and to select an appropriate intervention.”

Dr. Burckhardt says the e-book helps nurses prepare for potential problems before they occur, which supports their patient-advocacy role. These methods build the foundation for nurses to grow their leadership skills.

Minimizing Occurrence of Infections
‘Are You Prepared to Identify and Prevent the Three Infections that Make Up Two-Thirds of all Health Care Associated Infections?’ is a must read for nurses who want to learn how to use an evidence-based approach to prevent these events from happening. These measures will help patients and save health care facilities an upsurge in costs. The e-book profiles risk factors and prevention techniques for the three most common infection threats in health care facilities today:

-Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI)

-Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP)

-Central Line Associated Bloodstream Infection (CLABSI)
