Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Delirium in ICU's across the nation has been significantly under recognized, leading to increased adverse ICU and hospital outcomes. Research demonstrates growing trends in the last five years associated with ICU's to include: a 60% increase in ICU length of stay, two-fold increase in hospital length of stay, three-fold increase in ICU mortality, two-fold increase in ventilator days and a 41% increase in ICU costs associated with ICU delirium. While these trends may be influenced by many factors, delirium has been correlated as a strong, independent predictor of prolonged length of stay, reintubation, higher mortality, and cost of care. The purpose of this project was to assess the knowledge of the impact of delirium in critical care, associated risk factors and interventions and resources currently available. A survey was conducted which provided baseline data and was used to develop strategies to address delirium in critical care. Respondents totaled over 600, representing 12 organizations across the nation ranging from 100-bed community hospitals to 800-bed academic institutions. Of the respondents, 82% were RNs, 13% were RTs, 4% were MDs and the remaining 1% was other professional classifications. Results of this survey indicated: there is limited knowledge of delirium recognition in critical care environments among 51% of nursing respondents, 39% of respondents were unaware of current management strategies for treating delirium in ICU patients, 57% of respondents were unfamiliar with the impact of delirium in the ICU population, 51% of the respondents' standards for assessing delirium did not include evidence-based, objective and validated assessment tools and significant collaborative resources exist to develop an evidence-based Delirium Management Toolbox for shared use in expanded education opportunities. Frontline nursing professionals play a critical role in recognizing and addressing patient needs for optimal outcomes.
