Oral Care and Patient Positioning in Critical Care: A Replication Study
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

Background: Oral care and head of bed (HOB) elevation are interventions to decrease risk of aspiration pneumonia in hospitalized patients. In a previous study (Grap et al., 2003), nurses reported performing oral care more frequently than documented; the present study was done to extend generalizability of original study findings. Objectives: To replicate the original study and estimate instrument reliability. Methods: Using a cross-sectional design, survey data from nursing personnel and bedside observational data from nine intensive care units were collected. Results: 181 (47%) surveys were returned and data were collected from 436 patient bedsides. Reported oral care frequency and use of oral care products were different for intubated and nonintubated patients (p .70). Inter-rater reliability for bedside data collection was > 96%. Conclusions: In general, findings were comparable to those of the original study; nurses report more frequent oral care than documented. No evidence exists for reliability of the survey.
