BARRA, Daniela Couto Carvalho; DAL SASSO, Grace Teresinha Marcon  and  BACCIN, Camila Rosália Antunes. Warning systems in a computerized nursing process for Intensive Care Units. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2014, vol.48, n.1, pp.125-132. ISSN 0080-6234.

A hybrid study combining technological production and methodological research aiming to establish associations between the data and information that are part of a Computerized Nursing Process according to the ICNP® Version 1.0, indicators of patient safety and quality of care. Based on the guidelines of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the American Association of Critical Care Nurses for the expansion of warning systems, five warning systems were developed: potential for iatrogenic pneumothorax, potential for care-related infections, potential for suture dehiscence in patients after abdominal or pelvic surgery, potential for loss of vascular access, and potential for endotracheal extubation. The warning systems are a continuous computerized resource of essential situations that promote patient safety and enable the construction of a way to stimulate clinical reasoning and support clinical decision making of nurses in intensive care.
