My book is Evidence Based Practice in nursing and Healthcare: A Guide to Best Practice. (2011) or 2014 by Bernadette Melnyk and Ellen Fineout-Overholt
This my overall average. The institution that I completed my internship is where I am presently working, which is a mental Health facility called Hillcrest
Behavioral Hospital. This facility is made up of nurses which are Associated Degree Nurses,five Nurse Practitioners,ten Physicians, four pharmacy techs, three
pharmacist, ten Nurse Managers, eight house supervisors, Mental health Techs, DON, CEO, COO, Dietary department and others
While working with this facility I noticed that they are not ready or getting prepared for EBP, most of the nurses rely on each other for information and have very
poor computer skills . The mass majority of the nurses are new ADN graduates and lack the ability and skills to comprehend the EBP. The Physicians and the Nurse
Practitioners are suggestive to EBP and new knowledge. The corporate office is trying to make changes, but are being subjected to too many barriers such as inadequate
employment, not enough nurses or staff, a massive turn over monthly. When trying to incorporate new knowledge by the time the staff becomes trained, there’s another
turnover in staffing. This facility have recently incorporated a new computer system that can better track community, hospital acquired diseases. It is able to give
statistical data and it is able to monitor and track immunization of the children’s shot record and more.
I hope that this helps, if you need any aIDitional information just ask I will be happy to provide. I really did not know what would be needed so I just provided some
