Abstract

BACKGROUND
The purpose of this study is to identify the Central Line Bundle (CLB) Cognition, knowledge and performance Level of Infection management on Central Venous Catheter among Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Nurses.
METHODS
Data were collected from April 1 to 20, 2015, targeting 162 nurses working in the ICU of an upper general hospital and a general hospital. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, and ANOVA, with SPSS software (IBM SPSS Statistics for Windows, Version 21.0, Armonk, NY: IBM Corp.).
RESULTS
Average CLB cognitive score, knowledge score of central venous catheter infection management, and performance score of central venous catheter infection management were 2.46, 16.28, and 77.41, respectively. CLB cognition, knowledge of central venous catheter infection management, and performance with central venous catheter infection management showed positive correlations (r=.209, P=.007; r=246, P=.002). There was also a positive correlation between central venous catheter infection management knowledge and performance (r=.475, P=.000). CLB cognition showed statistically significant differences depending on the number of patients and the type of hospital. Knowledge of central venous catheter infection management also showed statistically significant differences depending on age and total career. Additionally, performance in central venous catheter infection management showed statistically significant differences depending on age, sex, position, total career, and the number of patients.
CONCLUSION
Based on the results, it is necessary to spread awareness about CLB as proposed by the CDC and to develop educational programs to increase the knowledge regarding, and improve performance of central venous catheter infection management.
