A caring-healing environment encouraged staff to take the extra time and precautions to prevent infections for their patients and created a better quality of care for the patients” Hanson (2017).

Abstract:

Central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) prove to be detrimental to both the patient and the hospital. The present study was a quality improvement training project to affect CLABSI rates in the cardiac intensive care unit in the context of a caring-healing environment, and contributed to a culture of patient safety to empower staff to speak up if they see a breach in protocol at any time. A caring-healing environment encouraged staff to take the extra time and precautions to prevent infections for their patients and created a better quality of care for the patients.
