I find this article to be very helpful. I am new to my facility, so I still need to familiarize myself with our patient population and the current practices in order to determine how I can best use this information. I do feel that the discussion of protected educational time for nursing staff can be used in any situation requiring bridging knowledge gaps to improve practices. As I continue to learn more about my current facility, I can advocate for providing educational resources to the nursing staff and the time they require to learn concepts and initiate or reinforce practices.

I agree that nurses should have further training regarding delirium. Delirium is more difficult to recognize, and with the age group, misinterpreted as confusion. Nurses must be able to correctly identify delirium and inform the practitioner. Thank you!
