Abstract
Objective: To explore the effect of Nursing Quality Improvement on reducing the incidence of hypoglycemia prior to and during colonoscopy in diabetes patients. Methods: The causes of hypoglycemia prior to and during colonoscopy were first analyzed. Then, the corresponding improvement plan and special procedure rules prior to and during colonoscopy were put forward. All the nurses including 23 nurses in the endocrinology department and 2 nurses in the endoscopy room must strictly obey the procedure rules. The Ward of Manager and the Nurse in charge were responsible for supervision. The awareness rate of nurse staff on the knowledge of colonoscopy and behavior improvement of nurse staff before and after the improvement were compared. The incidence of hypoglycemia prior to and during colonoscopy before and after the improvement were calculated. Results: After the Nursing Quality Improvement, the awareness rate of colonoscopy related knowledge in nurse staff was improved from 97.6 to 100%. All the nurses changed their nursing behavior related to bowel preparation from “Occasionally” to “Always”. Besides, the incidence of hypoglycemia prior to and during colonoscopy was reduced from 25% to 8.58% after the improvement. Conclusion: The application of Nursing Quality Improvement prior to and during colonoscopy can reduce the incidence of hypoglycemia and ensure the safety of patients.
