Kentucky Nurse - December 2021

Greetings Kentucky Nurse Friends!

For me, this edition comes out welcoming fall and

not so excitedly welcoming winter. The changing leaves

are beautiful, and we still have some warmer days, but

colder days are sure to come. I hope that you are doing

well during this continuing pandemic. I’m sure that

you have all been busy, but just to let you know, your

Kentucky Nurses Association has also been very busy.

We recently wrapped up some major events – our

annual member Business Meeting & Awards Ceremony

on Thursday, October 28 and our annual Summit

education event, Thursday, November 4 and Friday,

November 5. Both events went very well – at the

Business Meeting we awarded three nurses and one

citizen during our awards ceremony. It was our privilege

to honor and remember 96 nurses who have passed

away since the 2020 Business Meeting with a very

meaningful Nightingale Tribute. We also provided reports

on the finances of the Kentucky Nurses Association and

the Kentucky Nurses Foundation, reviewed our Strategic

Plan and the various activities that helped us achieve the

goals we set the year before.

Many of our chapters are busy in their communities

helping with testing and vaccination clinics. Cabinets and

Committees meet regularly to continue the worthwhile

work that they do. Please check the KNA website for

specific details – www.kentucky-nurses.org.

As the pandemic continues to roll through our

state, we have added a few more things to the KNA

priority “To Do” list – namely collaborating with other

nursing and healthcare organization leaders to resolve

the current nursing workforce shortage in Kentucky.

Since KNA is the only organization that speaks for

every nurse in the state regardless of where they work

or reside, we are addressing the nursing shortage that

affects every Kentuckian. KNA leaders have taken bold

steps to ask law makers and Governor Andy Beshear

for $100 million dollars coming to Kentucky through

the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to help combat

the nursing shortage. We know that this shortage is

not new, but the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly

exacerbated this urgent problem. We are losing nurses

to fatigue, burnout, difficult

working conditions, high

pay for out of state travel

nurses and early or unplanned

retirements.

We are also proposing Donna Meador

implementation of nonfinancial

strategies such as making sure nurses are

at the table when leaders and lawmakers discuss

healthcare worker shortages and determine solutions

(such as allocation of various funding) and the creation

of a task force of nursing leaders representing all

corners of Kentucky and all major areas of nursing (e.g.,

practice, education, research, advocacy and innovation/

technology) and the removal of the CAPA-Cs from

APRNs.

Our financial solutions include major funding for:

• Faculty retention, recruitment, and rewards

for NCLEX pass rates and graduation rates,

along with a council of colleges and schools

of nursing to research because schools of

nursing have unfilled seats and how to get them

filled;

• Loan forgiveness for nursing faculty,

students, and graduate nurses to work in

underserved areas 2021-2026, and CHFS to

apply for loan forgiveness grant through

HRSA – this would add another $1 million to this

request;

Nurse Emeritus program to utilize retired

nurses in a capacity specially designed for support

and augmentation of staffing needs with an

emphasis on supporting and retaining novice

nurses;

• Incremental Retention bonuses designed for

local nurses who have continued to work in the

state to support their communities;

• Recruitment bonuses and gratitude and

appreciation campaign for nurses.

President’s Pen continued from page 1

So yes, we have a lot on our plate, but we feel that these issues are of extreme

importance for nurses, our patients, families and communities. And we need your

help! By now, you’ve most likely seen emails, the KNA Special Bulletin, eNews or

announcements asking for you to join our letter-writing campaign, or notifying your

legislators by another means, to ask them to support these efforts.

We need our healthcare organizations to be staffed well and for our nurses

to be healthy, respected, treated well and paid for their loyalty and service to our

communities here in the Commonwealth.

Stay tuned for more information about these issues and stay safe, warm and dry

as our season transitions into the cooler temperatures and sometime hazardous

conditions.

All my best –

KNA needs volunteers to help with

COVID testing and vaccinations

Vaccinations available for children, 5 – 11 years old

KNA shares results of

Kentucky Nurses Survey

In a recent virtual press conference, the Kentucky Nurses Association

(KNA) released results of a statewide “Survey of Kentucky Nurses &

Recommendations” that revealed what’s most important to nurses, regarding

work safety, emotional health, physical health and professional stability during

the pandemic and beyond. KNA joined statewide nurse leaders to address

Kentucky’s nursing shortage and made recommendations about how to combat

this urgent issue.

The 850-person sample was rich in experience with most (61%) had 21

to more than 30 years of experience. Approximately 25% of the sample

indicated it was likely they would leave their current position in

the next three months, while 75% were unsure or unlikely to leave

soon. Respondents identified both highly rated explanations with both financial

and non-financial implications for the nursing profession.

The Kentucky Nurses Association needs nurse and nursing student volunteers

to help with COVID-19 testing and vaccinations. Those interested in Louisville,

may click Volunteer Registration. To volunteer in other parts of the state, contact

your chapter leader or reach out to the KNA at admin@kentucky-nurses.org. The

KNA is also looking for team leaders in the Louisville area. Those interested may

contact ceo@kentucky-nurses.org.

As vaccinations are becoming more available to Kentuckians, remember it’s

still very important to get tested for COVID-19. Visit ky-covid-testing for a list of

testing sites throughout the state.

We thank the more than 700 KNA COVID volunteers and all nurses across the

state who are lending their time and expertise to help combat the pandemic. In

Louisville alone, volunteers have administered nearly 6,500 vaccinations, close to

5,500 tests for nearly 12,000 people in the area’s most underserved area. Keep

in mind that we provide and require full PPE for testing

To date, more than 2.6 million Kentuckians have received at least one vaccine

dose. Still have questions about the vaccine? Visit Key Things to Know About

COVID-19 Vaccines (cdc.gov).

Opinion Editorial

(submitted to statewide media, 11/12/2021)

Thanks to nurse leaders around the Commonwealth, the nursing shortage

has moved from breakroom talk and conference room agendas among providers

to statewide and national news coverage. The Kentucky Nurses Association

recently hosted a press conference to discuss this urgent matter and the results

of its October 2021 Survey of Nurses that revealed what’s most important to

nurses, regarding work safety, emotional health, physical health and professional

stability during the pandemic and beyond. KNA joined statewide nurse leaders

to address Kentucky’s nursing shortage and made recommendations about how

to combat this urgent issue.

Respondents identified both highly rated explanations with both financial and

non-financial implications for the nursing profession. Nurses offered the highly

rated non-financial explanations of exhaustion, lack of breaks during work, lack

of support from management and lack of voice/influence as contributors to the

nursing shortage. Highly rated explanations with financial implications included

insufficient nursing/support staff and not enough pay/financial incentives as

primary contributors to the nursing shortage in Kentucky.

In addition, recent research findings show that a large percentage of advance

practice nurses (APRNs) plan to retire in the next 10 years. In many rural areas

of Kentucky, APRNs are the only care providers to serve patients and families

in their communities. These nurses are fatigued by the continued fight against

COVID with no clear resolution in sight.

Many actions that would support the nursing workforce rely heavily on the

availability and allocation of financial resources.

And many are taking travel nurse assignments in other states often making $150

- $200 an hour along with hefty sign-on bonuses, as well as room and board.

Here’s why it matters to all Kentuckians:

Remember the nurse that helped your family when your son was in a car

accident? Think about the nurse who helped bring your children into the world.

Think about how nurses kept your mom comfortable at the end of her life.

What about that time a nurse was so helpful at your doctor’s office? Consider

the nurse who worked tirelessly to care for someone you loved as she battled

COVID-19. Remember the nurse that gave you the COVID vaccine? Now,

consider how you and your loved ones would live without this type of expert

care. It’s a frightening thought and we can work together to stop it.

It’s time for everyone who has received the superior care and compassion that

nurses provide to make their voices known. Thank you in advance for reaching

out to lawmakers and making a positive difference in the lives of all Kentuckians.

Delanor Manson, MA, BSN, RN

Chief Executive Officer

Kentucky Nurses Association/Kentucky Nurses Foundation,

Kentucky Nurses Action Coalition

Here’s how you can help:

The Kentucky Nurses Association Nursing Shortage Task Force outlined a plan

that calls for $100 million utilizing ARPA funds to combat this critical issue and

a seat at the table when lawmakers discuss the allocation of ARPA funds. Write

a letter to your legislator and ask them to support this funding that will help

nurses chose to stay in Kentucky and care for Kentuckians.

$20 million - Faculty retention, recruitment, and reward for NCLEX pass rates

and graduation rates. Colleges and school of nursing council to research why

schools of nursing seats are unfilled.

$20 million - Loan forgiveness for nursing faculty, students, graduate nurses

to work in underserved areas 2021-2026 and a CHFS application for the loan

forgiveness grant through HRSA- 1 million a year in addition to this request.

$10 million - Nurse emeritus program to use retired nurses for support,

augment staffing needs and retain novice nurses.

$50 million - Retention bonuses (incremental) only for local nurses who have

stayed in the community to serve. Recruitment and marketing campaign that

enhances the image of nursing and entices students to go to nursing school

while ensuring current nurses feel recognized, gratitude and valued.

Remind lawmakers that nurses, at 90,000 strong in the Commonwealth, are

the 53% of the healthcare work force in the state and that they are leaving the

nursing roles and the profession entirely in record numbers.

We encourage you to write or email your legislators and ask them to fund

solutions that will keep nurses here in Kentucky and that will show them how

much they are valued and appreciated. Click this link to get started on your

message today: Contact Kentucky Legislators Funding for KY nurse initiatives.

The KNA home team just sent this editorial to statewide media to spread the

word among all Kentucky residents about this urgent matter.

Together, we can ensure that Kentucky nurses have a seat at the table when

lawmakers make decisions that affect the quality of life for all Kentuckians.

Business Meeting & Awards Ceremony Update

On Thursday, October 28, the KNA hosted its annual Business Meeting & Awards

Ceremony. Members approved proposed bylaw changes and the Kentucky Nurses

Association Substantive Resolution Proposal WorkPlace Safety Resolution. In addition,

new KNA introduced new leaders to the organization and we took time to honor and

remember 96 legacy nurses with the 2021 Nightingale Tribute Presentation.

Annually, the Kentucky Nurses Association recognizes the “best of the best” in

nursing with its awards program. We congratulate our 2021 recipients and invite you

to read about their accomplishments on behalf of Kentucky nurses:

Nurse of the Year,

sponsored by Norton Healthcare

Lisa Lockhart, Nursing Service Excellence Coordinator, Ephraim

McDowell Hospital

Lisa Lockhart, MSN, MHA, RN, NE-BC, gets things done!

Currently she serves as vice chair of the Nightingale Chapter, a

newly created position, is an active board stewardship

participant for the Kentucky Nurses Foundation Scholarship

Program and is an engaged member of the KNA Board of

Directors. At the same time, she serves as KNA’s liaison to KANS

and KNA Student Subscribers. The strategy is certain to increase

full membership in the years to come as students graduate and

begin professional practice.

The KNA Student Subscriber member group has increased

significantly in the last twelve months thanks to Lisa’s dedication and perseverance.

Her commitment to KNA isn’t new; she chaired the Professional Nursing and

Advocacy Cabinet that developed a survey to look at a workplace violence. The

report was presented at the 2019 Annual Conference. Multiple media outlets

interviewed Lisa about the results and her views on the findings. Subsequently, she

also was appointed to the statewide nursing Technical Advisory Committee.

Lisa’s leadership in engaging students in the work of KNA will have lasting

value. Additionally, her leadership engaged members of the Cabinet she chaired to

develop, administer, analyze and report the state of workplace violence affecting

nurses. Her service to the state represents KNA mission, values and relevance in the

Commonwealth.

Nurse Researcher of the Year Sponsored by

Indiana Wesleyan University & University of Louisville

School of Nursing

Gia Mudd-Martin

Professor

University of Kentucky College of Nursing

Gia Mudd-Martin PhD, MPH, RN, FAHA, in her quiet

manner, has been instrumental in helping to build on

KNA’s mission “as a voice for nurses to work for a

healthier Kentucky” through her sustained commitment

to community service, particularly among the underserved

Hispanic communities in Kentucky, as well as through her

scholarly activities.

She serves as the E. Vernon Smith, Bertice Henry Smith

& Bertice Harold Smith professor in Nursing Research,

director of the Community Engagement and Research

Core of the UK Center for Clinical and Translational Science, co-lead of the

UK Superfund Research Center and co-director of the College of Nursing

RICH Heart Program. Her program of community based participatory

research focuses on improving cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2

diabetes (T2D) health outcomes. As a prolific scholar and highly requested

speaker, Dr. Mudd-Martin promotes the role of professional nursing as an

educator, a scientist and a clinician dedicated to promoting health equity

through community- based participatory research and engagement.

Her extensive work in community-engaged research is strengthened

by her role as UK Lead and immediate past Chair of the Appalachian

Translational Research Network as well as by her work as UK representative

to the CTSA Enterprise Committee for “Collaboration & Engagement.”

She also serves on the Lexington Mayor’s International Affairs Advisory

Commission and is a former member of the board of directors for the La

Casita Center in Louisville.

Dr. Mudd is an exemplar of the true meaning of a servant leader

dedicated to building a culture of health through research with the Latino

population to address health disparities.

Volunteer of the Year Sponsored by

the Kentucky Nurses Foundation

William “Bill” Hayden

Senior Oncology/Hematology Specialist, Incyte

Starting in December 2020

through April 2021, Bill

Hayden, BSN, RN, worked as

an integral part of developing

the training, implementation,

and evaluation of the drivethrough

mass vaccination event

in Louisville, aptly named

LouVax-Broadbent. He was

on-site for that seventeen-week

event and the two weeks of pilot testing and he

was often there multiple days. During that time,

he quickly developed a reputation as a

competent, empathetic and engaging leader and

was repeatedly selected to represent the process

at milestone events such as the celebrations that

would occur at the administration a plateau dose

of vaccine (e.g., the 50,000th dose).

He was able to calm and evoke trust and

confidence in individuals who came for

vaccination but were afraid. His interactions with

the public, other volunteers, and Louisville Metro

Public Health & Wellness leadership demonstrated

precisely the type of interactions that nurses are

known for and why we continue to be recognized

as THE most trusted profession. His nominator

estimates that Bill devoted approximately 250

volunteer hours during this mass vaccination

event. His service didn’t stop there – Bill has

continued to serve as a team leader for LouVax

mobile missions where he has volunteered over

200 hours along with an additional 50 hours at

testing sites.

In late July, despite vaccination, Bill

experienced COVID-19 himself. He and his family

were active in disclosing this information so it

could serve as a platform for teaching about the

disease itself, breakthrough infection despite

vaccination, the differences in outcomes when

vaccinated, and the importance of continuing

to address vaccine hesitance. Throughout his

experiences with COVID-19, he also helped

identify areas in clinical practice where gaps

exist in care, care access, and care processes.

His involvement in every aspect of this pandemic

has been conducted with professionalism and

with grace, all while promoting KNA and the

nursing profession. Bill is also a new KNF Board

of Trustee. He does it all.

Kathy Turner

Director of Communications

Louisville Metro Health & Wellness

Department

The KNA Vision is “To be the

voice for nurses and work for a

healthier Kentucky.” Through

word and deed, Kathy Turner

exemplifies this vision daily. Her

tireless efforts to convey

COVID-19 prevention,

education, vaccination and

testing information have

reached even our most

underserved communities. To that end, Kathy

formed a COVID Work Group comprised of public

relations practitioners in Louisville’s health care

and human services industries. Under her

leadership, this group has spread the COVID

message via hospitals, organizations such as

KNA, Family Health Centers, non-profit agencies

and groups dedicated to non-English speaking

residents such as the Americana Community

Center, La Casita Center and the Somali

Community of Louisville, among others.

According to a recommendation letter we

received from Dr. SarahBeth Hartlage, associate

medical director of the Louisville Metro

Department of Public Health & Wellness, Kathy

worked on-site at LouVax, inside Broadbent

arena, throughout the first half of 2021, even in

harsh conditions and deftly managed information

that changed quickly and made sure that she

kept the public informed of all critical updates.

She made connections that helped highlight

vaccinations in specific groups, including

A seasoned communicator, Kathy employed

her expertise to raise the level of awareness

about COVID-19 education, prevention, testing

and vaccination in a way that has impacted an

entire community.

We hope you enjoy this continuing series, “Meet

the Kentucky Nurses Association Board” that

regularly appears in Kentucky Nurse. KNA leaders

tirelessly volunteer their time to advocate for fellow

nurses and those in their care. Get to know these

nurses, ask them questions and reach out. This is

your professional nursing organization.

Past KNA Leadership Positions: Professional

Nursing and Advocacy Cabinet and former chair of

the Pennyrile Chapter

(KN): What made you decide to serve in a

leadership position within our organization?

(LE): I love KNA and what it stands for in the

nursing profession. Advocacy is an important part

of what KNA does and I wanted to be a part of that

process. Helping nurses throughout Kentucky and

ultimately impacting patient care is the focus of KNA

and I can make a difference through my service in

leadership positions.

(KN): What would you say to others who are

considering leadership positions within KNA?

(LE): I would tell others that I am proud of

them for wanting to be a part of such a wonderful

organization. I would also tell them to speak up and

to think forward as that is how KNA operates. Time

is important when serving in a leadership position, so

apply knowing you will need to devote some time.

(KN): What would you like fellow nurses to

know about your KNA membership? What does

it mean to you?

(LE): My membership in KNA has empowered

me as a nurse. It keeps me current regarding nursing

issues and allows me to participate in needed

nursing interventions for Kentucky. My membership

is dear to my heart and allows me to participate in

many avenues that affect nurses and patient care.

(KN): What is your message to nurses on the

frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic?

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Many of our

former nurses faced many obstacles and yet those

nurses stood dedicated and moved the profession

and the care of patients forward, just as you are. I

applaud you for your tenacity and dedication in what

you do every day.

Paul Norrod and public health nursing

instructor for the at the

University of Kentucky College of Nursing

Year joined KNA: 2021

(KN): What made you decide to serve in a

leadership position within our organization?

(PN): As nurses, we strive to improve the health

and well-being of our patients and communities.

A critical aspect of nursing involves helping others

through advocacy, but often we advocate for our

patients and not our well-being. My decision to

serve, based on my life experience, is to support and

improve the well-being of Kentucky nurses. I want

nurses to have a voice and a safe place to express

their concerns about practicing in Kentucky.

(KN): What would you say to others who are

considering leadership positions within KNA?

(PN): You are one of the most influential persons

in healthcare and your experience and voice matter!

If we do not speak for ourselves, there is no one else

to speak for us. I encourage any nurse considering

leadership to join us to make nurses matter and

work through long-standing problems like workplace

stress. The time commitment is not substantive,

but your voice and participation can positively

impact nursing practice in Kentucky. You’ve met the

requirements because you are a nurse!

(KN): What would you like fellow nurses to

know about your KNA membership? What does

it mean to you?

(PN): As a KNA member, I feel welcomed, heard

and supported. As nurses, we are about taking action

and membership in KNA allows me to act on issues

relevant to nursing practice and our profession. At

no time am I left wondering if my input will be heard

among nursing leadership here in Kentucky and the

amount of diversity, experience and professional

collaboration, in my mind, represents everything

nursing symbolizes.

(KN): What is your message to nurses on the

frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic?

(PN): Somedays, I struggle to find the words to

describe my experience working as a nurse during

the pandemic. I don’t think any of us expected to

be heralded as heroes then demeaned in the same

year. Some of you and your colleagues experienced

more trauma in the last two years than in your entire

career. Still, we now recognize our importance in

healthcare and the need to capitalize on our individual

and combined resilience to improve our professional,

fiscal, mental and physical well-being. To that end,

I encourage you to reach out to KNA members and

consider joining us as we work to improve nursing

practice during this tumultuous time.

arm of the Kentucky Nurses Association.

Congratulations are in order for the KNF

board of trustees for record setting board

Congratulations also go to the recipients

of the Nursing Excellence and the Mildred

Metz Scholarships for 2021! Lydia Comer,

a nursing student at Northern Kentucky

University, received the Nursing Excellence

Scholarship and Claire-Marie Hall, a nursing

student at the University of Kentucky,

received the Mildred Metz Scholarship.

The accomplishments of the recipients are

amazing as they are journeying toward

becoming nurses. We offer our hope and

confident expectation for their best as they

complete their nursing education and across

their nursing careers.

Thanks to everyone who donated and

worked hard to make our recent KNA/KNF

Virtual Raffle a success. This socially distant

safe event garnered more than $21,000 to

benefit nursing education, scholarships and

research across the Commonwealth. We had a great time with this one

and thank all who purchased tickets to get in on the fun.

As the outgoing president of the Kentucky Nurses Action Coalition (KNAC), I can

think of no other better way to introduce this inaugural KNAC column for Kentucky

Nurse than to simply say “WE ROCK and THANK YOU”! Since convening in 2008,

as the Kentucky Nursing Workforce-Kentucky Nursing Capacity Consortium (KNCC),

we have evolved to become an arm of KNA actively engaged as a part of the Future

of Nursing: Campaign for Action, a joint initiative of the AARP and the Robert Wood

Johnson Foundation (RWJF) strengthening the nursing workforce and building a

culture of health in the Commonwealth.

Growing KNAC membership from 15 to more than 100, we have strengthened

bylaws and articles for next steps in seeking 501(c)6 status and transferred more

than $7000 to the Kentucky Nurses Foundation to manage business transactions

and membership fees. As inaugural members of the Nurses on Boards Campaign,

a national affiliation with the AARP and RWJF Campaign for Action, our goal was

to have 151 Kentucky nurses on non-nursing boards by 2021 and we closed the

campaign in September 2021 by exceeding expectations with 165 nurses serving in

these roles.

Leading the way with nurse suicide prevention, we have been on the national

forefront by advancing mental health and wellness for Kentucky nurses through

news media outlets and scholarly activities. Collaborating with KNA Cabinets for

Professional Practice and Advocacy and Governmental Affairs, the KNA Resolution

for A Call to Action for Kentucky Nurse Leaders to Promote Practices

for Optimal Well-being, Resilience and Suicide Prevention in Schools of

Nursing was passed, the Governor declared May 2021 as Nurse Suicide Prevention

Month and free continuing education offerings were provided throughout May

2021 to cultivate practices for resilience and prevent nurse suicide.

Our council workgroups have been nothing short of extraordinary with two

consecutive years of AARP-RWJF Nursing Innovation Grants Awards totaling

$100,000 through matched funding with multiple state, academic and private

partners to advance mental health and well-being and prevent suicide in the

workforce. The first grant award has impacted 150 farm families in western

Kentucky to help prevent farmer suicide and the current grant award will impact

100 school nurses to help prevent youth suicide. In partnership with the CDC and

the University of Louisville, we collaborated on the FrontLine grant where 5,921

Kentucky health providers responded to a survey to help inform future infection

control trainings.

Established in 1906, the Kentucky Nurses Association (KNA) is the only full-service member-driven

professional organization for the state’s entire nurse population. The Kentucky Board of Nursing (KBN)

is an agency of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, governed by the Nurse Practice Act, established in 1914.

Gotta Catch ‘em All: Clinical Cues Used by

Nurses to Catch Patient Changes

How do nurses detect when a patient’s condition

starts to deteriorate? To determine just that, Burdeu

and associates recently conducted a systematic

review of the literature to examine studies that

looked at the clinical cues used by acute care nurses

to recognize changes in the clinical states of adult

medical-surgical patients. A change in clinical state

is characterized as a different state compared to

the last patient assessment or when the patient or

significant other reports a change. Vital signs, vital

sign abnormalities, clinician concern, and intuition

are just a few cues nurses use to identify changes in

patients’ clinical states. Understanding the clinical

cues that nurses use to determine changes in patient

clinical conditions will allow for further awareness of

how nurses provide safe and effective care for their

patients.

The primary databases used to gather the studies

were MEDLINE Complete, CINAHL Complete via

EBSCO Host, EMBASE, and INFORMIT Health subset

of 11 databases. Keywords used were terms related

to “acute care nurses,” “medical and surgical wards,”

“patient assessment,” “patient cues,” “recognition of

changes in clinical state,” and “clinical change.” After

applying the inclusion and exclusion criteria, there

were 38 studies included for review, 32 qualitative

designs, four mixed methods, two surveys, and two

using chart audits. While three of the studies looked

at acute care nurses’ documentation of clinical cues,

most of the data collected were through observation

and self-reports. All studies were examined for bias;

however, methodological details were omitted from

many studies, and assessment quality was poor,

making it difficult to exclude studies.

After gathering and comparing the data, the first

finding was that over 173 unique clinical cues had

been identified. These cues could be grouped into

32 different categories that comprised nine different

objective clinical states. Additionally, 26 subjective

clinical cues identified could be grouped into four

categories. Only 11 clinical cues were identified

to recognize patient improvement. These findings

suggest that acute care nurses opt for objective

clinical cues over subjective input from patients

to catch clinical changes in status. However, more

research is needed to see how nurses assess for

improvements in hospitalized patients.

The second notable finding was that although

a complete set of vital signs usually includes

temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory

rate, oxygen saturation, and level of consciousness

as part of patient assessment, the most common

clinical cues reported across the studies were heart

rate, blood pressure, and temperature. Respiratory

rate, oxygen saturation, GCS score, and level of

consciousness were not reported consistently, even

though tachypnea, hypoxemia, and a lower GCS

score are often signs seen in severe illness or before

adverse events. Thus, future research should focus

on how nurses decide which vitals to include in their

patient assessments, the framework they use to

recognize changes in clinical states, and why some

cues are preferred over others.

The last finding was that majority of the studies

that looked at nurses’ assessment of changes

in patient states concentrated on one of three

distinct clinical states: pain, physiological stability,

or cognition. By focusing on these three aspects of

assessment, what is known about how acute care

nurses approach assessment cues is narrowed to

only a small part of patient assessment, rather than

seeking to understand the whole picture. Patients’

clinical states are complex and varied, and thus a

broader range of clinical cues should be explored

to understand better the cues used in patient

assessment.

Nurses must protect patients from deterioration

and encourage patient recovery by recognizing and

using targeted clinical cues to catch early changes

in patients’ clinical states. Patient assessment and

recognition of clinical changes in a patient is a

significant responsibility of the acute care nurse.

More research is needed to give a more complete

picture of how nurses undertake patient assessment,

why there is a preference for some clinical cues over

others, and how nurses use clinical cues to identify

both positive and negative changes.

Why I Chose Nursing

Oo Meh

Nursing Student

2020 Nursing Excellence Scholarship

Award Recipient

My name is Oo Meh, and I am a

nursing student from Karenni

Refugee Camp #1 in Thailand.

My family and I immigrated to

the United States in 2009. Since

I was very young, I have wanted

to work in healthcare and

become a nurse practitioner.

One day I will return to a

Karenni refugee camp to

provide the necessary and

Oo Meh

proper care the refugees need.

I am drawn to nursing because of what I

experienced in the refugee camp. We only had two

poorly equipped clinics and no licensed doctors or

nurses. Though a hospital was a two-hour drive

away, we were not allowed to leave the camp. Many

women who gave birth in the camp lost their babies,

including an aunt of mine. One of my uncles passed

away due to a lack of medications to treat him.

Health care information and supplies were and still

are contributing factors to the available care.

Here in the United States, after learning English, I

found ways to help other refugees with medical needs

in my Karenni community. I volunteered to interpret

for Karenni patients in clinics and hospitals, and I have

become a certified medical interpreter for the Karenni

language. Refugees have a barrier to healthcare

because of communication problems. It is imperative

that patients have equal care—regardless of differences

such as race—and I am determined to assist. As a nurse

practitioner, I will be able to do so much more.

Recently, I visited Thailand to see family I have

not seen in many years. One of my aunts is now

a nurse in the camp. She has no formal education

and was taught by other nurses in the camp. I spent

a long, exhausting day with her in the clinic, and

the inadequacies of the circumstances there were

worse than I had remembered. It made me ache to

know how much help is needed.

Education is key. As a nurse, I want to educate

people so they can stay up to date and save more

lives in Kentucky and abroad.

Overall, it is vital to me to fulfill my purpose by serving

my community and providing care to people like those

who have few healthcare services in their home countries.

Educating them about their health as I am serving them is

equally important. I eagerly await becoming a full-fledged

nurse. I eagerly await my time to act.
