Appropriate data collection is a critical component in obtaining useful data for your research. Using your proposed research topic and research questions, explain your plan for data collection. Discuss potential issues in your data collection plan and your plans to overcome these challenges. Then, respond to at least two or your classmates’ posts and analyze their plan for data collection. Are their plans appropriate for their research project? Do you have any suggestions for improvement? Research Topic: Hand Washing in the Hospital Setting Research Questions (PICOT): 1) In patients in the surgical units what is the effect of proper hand washing practice of nursing and medical professionals versus ineffective hand hygiene on the prevention of cross contamination between patients during a 7 day hospitalization? 2) In immune depressed patients, does the use of gloves and other personal protective equipment alone compared to the use of soap, water and friction reduce opportunistic infection during hospitalization/ isolation period? 3) In the neonatal preterm infant with inadequate immune system defense, does handwashing with soap and water of parents and health care workers reduce the contamination of babies by common bacteria on the hands such as staph aureus, klebsiella, and actinobacter as compared to just the use of hand sanitizer gel in the neonatal ICU ward?
