Abstract:
Learning objectives: The learner will be able to identify the efficacy of the use of mupirocine nose cream in a Dutch Teaching Hospital; the learner will be able to learn more about bedside nursing research. Keywords: cardiac surgery, bedside nursing research, evaluating study. Purpose: Infections occurring after cardiac surgery using the method of sternectomy, is one of the main causes of in hospital mortality and morbidity with a consequence of prolonged hospital stay and increased costs. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the use of mupirocine nose cream, provided by nurses, in reducing postoperative wound infections in cardiac surgery patients with the use of sternectomy. Method: From each patient of a group of 100 cardiac surgery (with sternectomy) adult patients, between February and June 2009 nose swabs were taken both preoperative and on the third day after surgery. From all swabs the presence of the Staphylococcus Aureus was laboratory determined. The pre- and third day postoperative result was compared for each patient. Findings: 72% of the patient using mupirocine nose cream were negative on the presence of Staphylococcus Aureus both pre- and postoperative.
From the group with a pre-operative positive result on the presence of Staphylococcus Aureus (24%), 19% was postoperative negative, using mupirocine nose cream. No preoperative patient with a negative result on the presence of Staphylococcus was postoperative positive with the use of mupirocine nose cream. Only one patient was found to be sensitive for mupirocine nose cream. The patients with both a pre- and postoperative positive result on the presence of Staphylococcus Aureus and using mupirocine nose cream appeared to be preponderant male patients of 70 years and older. Discussion: In the absence of a control group which was not using any form of antibiotic, the subgroup groups in the intervention group where analyzed. Although there is no clear evidence, it is lucid that the use of mupirocine nose cream reduces postoperative wound infections. Special attention should be paid to the continuation of administering the mupirocine nose cream.
