To complete this week, after reading chapter two in Melnyk and reviewing the lectures you submit a 2-3 page paper that explores the background of your issue.

Introduction: Since the beginning of COVID-19’s ongoing pandemic, healthcare has faced significant difficulties. These include staffing and client care as well as safe visits and treatments. We will be defining the problem, exploring its epidemiology and complications as well as diagnosing it. Finally, we’ll conclude our paper with a PICOT question to help guide further research and intervention.

Definition: The ongoing COVID-19 epidemic is a new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. Infected people spread the virus via respiratory droplets, which can cause mild to severe symptoms and even death.

Epidemiology. Since December 2019, when the first cases of the disease were identified in Wuhan (China), the virus spread worldwide, infecting more than 300 million people, and leading to over 5 million deaths by February 2023. People of all ages have been affected by the pandemic, but older people and those suffering from underlying conditions are at greater risk for severe illness or death.

Clinical Presentation: COVID-19 clinical presentations can be asymptomatic or severe. The main symptoms are fever, nausea, vomiting, loss of taste and smell, as well as cough and fatigue. Less common symptoms include sore throat and headaches, diarrhea and skin rashes.

Complications: Depending on the severity and extent of the disease, complications of COVID-19 may range from mild to very severe. Acute respiratory distress syndrome, pneumonia and sepsis are some of the most common complications. Individuals who recover from COVID-19 may experience long-term complications. These include fatigue, shortness, cognitive impairment, mood disorders and cognitive impairment.

Diagnostics: A laboratory test is used to detect the presence of SARS-2 virus in respiratory samples. The polymerase chain reactions (PCR) are the most commonly used test to detect viral RNA. Both antigen tests that detect viruses proteins as well as antibody tests which can detect previous infection are used.

Conclusion of the PICOT question: Since COVID-19 has been ongoing, healthcare facilities have had significant impacts. This includes issues such as staffing, client care and safety visits/treatments. This PICOT question is about how the safety protocols implemented and the adequate staffing level compared with usual care affect the quality and well-being of clients and staff over the course of six months. This question seeks to answer the concern of safe client care in the context of the pandemic. Then, it will evaluate the effect of safety protocols and staffing upon the quality and well-being of the care. Future research will provide valuable insights and recommendations for effective solutions to the problem, which can lead to better outcomes.
