Due Date: Dec 04, 2016 23:59:59 Max Points: 150
Consider the population in which the solution is intended, the staff that will participate, and the key contributors that must provide approval and/or support for your project to be implemented. These stakeholders are considered your audience.
Develop an implementation plan (1,500-2,000 words) using the "Topic 3: Checklist" resource. The elements that should be included in your plan are listed below:
Method of obtaining necessary approval(s) and securing support from your organization`s leadership and fellow staff.
Description of current problem, issue, or deficit requiring a change. Hint: If you are proposing a change in current policy, process, or procedure(s) when delivering patient care, describe first the current policy, process, or procedure as a baseline for comparison.
Detailed explanation of proposed solution (new policy, process, procedure, or education to address the problem/deficit).
Rationale for selecting proposed solution.
Evidence from your Review of Literature in Topic 2 to support your proposed solution and reason for change.
Description of implementation logistics (When and how will the change be integrated into the current organizational structure, culture, and workflow? Who will be responsible for initiating the change, educating staff, and overseeing the implementation process?)
Resources required for implementation: staff; educational materials (pamphlets, handouts, posters, and PowerPoint presentations); assessment tools (questionnaires, surveys, pre- and post-tests to assess knowledge of participants at baseline and after intervention); technology (technology or software needs); funds (cost of educating staff, printing or producing educational materials, gathering and analyzing data before, during, and following implementation), and staff to initiate, oversee, and evaluate change.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

It is one whose importance is a matter of life and death, quite literally. As a result, the care given by the nurses is important in the entire process of healthcare delivery. This is especially so when it comes to the cases of infections caused by the healthcare elements. Among such infections is the ventilator-associated pneumonia. This paper provides a detailed review and an implementation plan of handling this problem in a healthcare setting. LITERATURE REVIEW Ventilator-associated infection is a lung infection that usually affects patients who are on a ventilator. Most of the patients with breathing difficulties suffer from VIP which results from germs that enter into their systems via the tubes that supply them with oxygen. Healthcare-associated infections normally result high morbidity and mortality rates which in turn leads to wastage of funds, since a lot of money is spent on hospital bills (Azab et al., 2015). Research that was done using Vitek MS- Biomerieux- France revealed that a package of contamination regulation was capable of reducing VAP incidences. Alsadat et al. (2012) in his study, which was conducted by applying VAP bundles in training hospitals, also revealed a decrease in the cases of infections reported. A greater improvement was shown after control charts, and other relevant stati...
