Appropriate sampling is a critical component in developing a good research project. Using your approved research questions and research topic, explain your anticipated sampling method and why this is appropriate for your research proposal. What is your sample size? Next, read and review two of your classmates’ posts and analyze their sampling approach. Are their sampling approaches appropriate? Why or why not? Research Topic: Hand Washing in the Hospital Setting Research Questions: 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?
