In my ward, nursing staff are very busy attending to different patients, and they do not get enough time to provide mouth care to patients on ventilators. Even if nurses provide oral care, traditionally they use thymol gargle for it. Chlorhexidine is rarely used by them. Many studies and trial proved that using chlorhexidine for oral care for mechanical ventilated patient can lower the VAP incident rate. I would like to implement a protocol for prevention of VAP to reduce VAP rate. And I would like to use transformational leadership style to make change.
