Mapping patient-nurse interactions could minimize infections
from HealthLeaders Media
Research findings call on hospital leaders to take a deeper look at how staff — primarily nurses — interact with patients, to determine a way for patients at highest risk for infection to come into contact with fewer workers. These days, the term "social networking" is practically synonymous with "social media," calling to mind buzzing Twitter alerts and updating Facebook statuses. But by analyzing a hospital's social network, in the traditional sense of the phrase, researchers have discovered a new model that may help to minimize infections.
