I have included an article to help answer the question of the length of stay- how will it be calculated, and data collected for the QI project – must have substantial information as this is a QI project on reducing LOS

Pls address per the comment on the right. This QI project is related to LOS as the outcome. The discussion above needs to identify how LOS will be measured. Describe the step-by-step process you will use to collect the data, explain where the data will come from, and how you will protect the data and participants. 1.The day the QI project is approved to begin, data collection will begin throughout the designated timeframe. The project manager notes, an informed consent will not be in needed for this DPI project per the project site. All data will be collected by the designated bundle champions . Bundle Champions are designated staff members tasked to collect bundle work sheets per shift throughout the project study period for data collection. Descriptive statistical data will be collected by bundle champions from the electronic health record (EHR) on patients who meet inclusion criteria. Each patient will be de-identified. The de-identification will consist of an unique set of numbers and alphabets. 2. The demographic data will include age, sex, marital status, primary diagnosis, race, last mobility status, respiratory requirements i.e. tracheostomy collar or mechanical ventilation. The data will result in medians, means, modes, standard deviation, range, and percentages for each variable. According to Knapp (2018), researchers use descriptive statistics to summarize the findings of the data they collect. Focus here!!! 3. Additional data such as the bundle checklist (approved for use by University of Vanderbilt Medical Center) UMVC will be used to document bundle data essentials. The checklist will be collected by bundle champions daily after staff completion. Only completed bundle checklists will be included in the data for analysis. Incomplete checklist will not be accepted. Completion of forms will be discussed in teachings prior to project implementation. There will be a designated time that bundle checklist must be completed. Bundle elements include (Assess, Prevent, and Manage Pain (A); Both Spontaneous Awakening Trials (SAT) and Spontaneous Breathing Trials (SBT) (B); Choice of analgesia and sedation (C); Delirium: Assess, Prevent, and Manage (D); Early mobility and Exercise (E); (Marra et al., 2017). 4. The daily bundle data checklists will be stored in a locked cabinet, designated for the QI project only. Bundle champions will be the key holders. In addition, a scanned digital copy will be stored on the designated desktop hard drive under password protection by the bundle champions. 5.The raw data will be organized on an excel spreadsheet until time for preparation for data analysis. The comparative data will be given to the primary investigator for data analysis post intervention. 6.The post-intervention data will be entered similarly as the pre-implementation data for comparison. Comparative data will encompass eight weeks of collected data length of the project until timeframe for data analysis in SPSS version 28 software for independent t-test analysis. The data will be presented in table format using APA 7 format. 7. The data will be destroyed through pulping, cross-shredding, and pulverizing (Constable, 2019) after three years when the findings have been published. Identify how LOS will be tracked – I attached an article to help – I think I can keep the information above but it must include LOS and how it will be collected etc.
