I think I have a different perspective on this issue. Magnet designation means the hospital is certified to conduct research and test evidenced based practice. EBP is important for many reasons. Recently, the ACA is conducting research that asks if tight glycerin control is really beneficial for patients over 70 years of age. That is a really good research topic.
One reason nurses and ancillary especially provide oral care and elevate patients heads to at least 30 degrees is to prevent pneumonia, which is a practice that was based on research findings.
I would love to work at a hospital where research is encouraged and implemented as part of our daily routine in health care. Much of what we do is EBP.
