How and Why Nurses Can Prevent the #1 Hospital-Acquired Infection: Non-Ventilator Hospital-Acquired Pneumonia (NV-HAP)

Presented by Dian Baker, PhD, NP, APRN-BC

Pneumonia is one of the most common hospital-acquired infections, and most of these are in non-mechanically ventilated patients (NV-HAP). Developing pneumonia may lengthen hospital stay and potentially increase the likelihood of being readmitted or transferred to the ICU. Learn the latest evidence-based strategies to prevent this deadly hospital-acquired condition.

Specifically, you’ll learn to:

  • Explain the impact of NV-HAP on patient safetyand outcomes
  • Describe the evidence on NV-HAP prevention, including how nurses can implement a program of comprehensive, evidence-based oral care for all patients not on a ventilator
  • Understand the updated policy implications and The Joint Commission’s September 2021 patient safety alert on NV-HAP
