Abstract/Description

Ventilator Associated Pneumonia is a pneumonia that develops 48-72 hours after intubation. The research examined promotes the necessity of healthcare workers vigilance in stopping Ventilator Associated Pneumonia. Through compliance with bundle elements the rate of VAP decreases to almost non-existent. Healthcare workers including, but not limited to physicians, nurses, and respiratory therapists can improve patient outcomes by working together to prevent this nosocomial infection. By increasing compliance to VAP prevention bundles the number of cases has decreased. Thus, increasing positive patient outcomes.
