Abstract

Background/Objectives

The nurse has a critical role to play at preventing of nosocomial infection. This study was attempted to determine the nurses’ awareness and performance related to respiratory system nosocomial infection control.

Methods/Statistical analysis

Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics.

Findings

The mean of compliance of hand washing was 2.81(ranging 1–3). Regarding hand washing before and after caring the site of tracheostomy was 2.90 point and 2.94 point, respectively. The hands washing before wearing gloves was 2.62 point. The compliance of hand washing before wearing gloves was relatively low and the highest compliance was hands washing after caring the site of tracheostomy. Subjects with bachelor graduate (t=-2.057, p=.041) and higher position (t=-3.139, p=.002) showed higher awareness about respiratory system nosocomial infection control with statistical significance. Subjects with higher position (t=-2.427, p=.016), those who think that guidelines for infection control are needed (t=3.413, p=.001), and those who think that education about infection control is necessary (t=-2.033, p=.043) showed higher performance about respiratory system nosocomial infection control with statistical significance. There was correlation between awareness about respiratory system nosocomial infection control and performance about respiratory system nosocomial infection control (r=.518, p=<.001).

Improvements/Applications

Education or surveillance should be centered on practices with low performance.
