Determinants of compassion satisfaction, compassion fatigue and burn out in nursing: A correlative meta-analysis. Compassionate care is essential for better clinical and patient outcomes, but during healthcare provision it can be compromised by several factors. This study evaluates factors affecting compassion satisfaction, compassion fatigue and burnout in nursing.Literature search in electronic databases was followed by data extraction, conversion, and meta-analyses under random effect model (...) . Correlation coefficients (r) reported by individual studies were first converted to z-scores for meta-analyses and the overall effect sizes were then back-transformed into r.Eleven studies (4054 respondents; 64.34 [95% confidence interval: 38.82, 89.86] % response rate; age 39.81 [31.36, 48.27] years; 87.11 [79.48, 94.73] % females) were used for meta-analysis.

6. Alarm Fatigue: Use of an Evidence-Based Alarm Management Strategy. (Abstract)

Alarm Fatigue: Use of an Evidence-Based Alarm Management Strategy. The purpose of this article is to describe the impact of an evidence-based alarm management strategy on patient safety. An alarm management program reduced alarms up to 30%. Evaluation of patients on continuous cardiac monitoring showed a 3.5% decrease in census. This alarm management strategy has the potential to save $136 500 and 841 hours of registered nurses' time per year. No patient harm occurred during the 2-year project.
