I am working on a fairly large quality improvement and educational project for the ICUs at my hospital. My focus is sedation vacations and ensuring that they are completed as necessary to improve vent outcomes. I'm curious what other critical care areas are doing for this.
What are your hospital's documentation standards for sedation vacations?
How often are your staff performing sedation vacations? Daily, every shift, etc.
Is there a method for educating or encouraging nurses to perform DSV that has significantly increased their compliance?
