Multiple fetuses such as twins, triplets, and beyond are treated as one pregnancy and one birth when recording the GTPAL. Amanda's GTPAL is 4 (pregnancies counting current one) - 1 (infant born at 39 weeks) - 1 (twins born at 35 weeks) - 1 (spontaneous abortion at 9 weeks) - 3 (each twin and the singleton, all living).

Using SwabCap® to Reduce the Number of Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSIs) Dawn E Bennett Joliet Junior College Nursing 260 Using SwabCap® to Reduce the Number of Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSIs) According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every year health care associated infections (HAIs) affect 5% of hospitalized patients in the United States. CLABSIs are a deadly HAI, with a mortality rate of 12%-25%. In 2009, the number of CLABSIs in an Intensive care unit (ICU) setting was estimated at 18,000, and for patients in an inpatient ward was an estimated 23,000. Patients receiving hemodialysis as an outpatient in 2008 had an higher rate of CLABSIs, with an estimated
Methods: First, the top ten journals from library science (LIS), medicine, nursing, and social work were identified. Next, primary bibliographic databases for each discipline (LISA, Medline, Cinahl, and Social Services Abstracts) were searched for terminology related to evidence-based practice and research methodologies for the period from 1995-2005, in order to track diffusion of EBP concepts to each field through its top literature. Professional association statements, EBP models, barriers to practice, controversies, and other aspects were considered, then compared between the disciplines. Results: Disciplines traditionally based on an empirical body of evidence may be more ready to adapt evidence based models for practice than those whose foundations rest at least partially in the social sciences (social work, LIS), and this is evidenced by the patterns of use of EBP-related research methods as reflected in the disciplines’ top resources. Conclusions: By comparing across disciplines we can better understand how EBP has been adapted to suit the different disciplinary contexts, and consider how this might best occur in LIS.
