Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Ventilator-associated pneumonia is recognized by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) as a preventable occurrence in the hospital setting, and as a result has become the focus of practice standards for prevention. Whether you are beginning your journey to VAP prevention or would like to broaden your approach, this presentation will offer you useful "take home" tools. Our overall action plan will map the way for your interdisciplinary team to undertake individual plan components that produce measurable results. We will walk through the CDC recommendations and development of a "step by step" approach to VAP reduction. Components include: Establishing processes that ensure consistent elevation of the patient's head and a "foam in / foam out" procedure for all entering and exiting the patient's room; Building staff competency through skill sets for oral care, subglottic and endotracheal suctioning; Implementing current standards of care for mechanical ventilation and a ventilator bundle; Involving and supporting family through education; Developing a data collection tool that is complete without being overwhelming; Creating a "mini-Root Cause Analysis" process to improve understanding of events that lead up to VAP, improving our ability to recognize and intervene early in an "at risk" situation. We will share our demonstrated results including savings in dollars and patient lives, and illustrate ways that we have celebrated our successes.
