What are the gaps in this policy?

  • Interpret research, bringing the nursing perspective, alongside perspectives of their administrative colleagues, for policy makers and stakeholders.

Instructions

Consider the following scenario:

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, state Governors took significant steps to protect residents, including the most vulnerable populations, nursing home residents. In Oklahoma, Governor Kevin Stitt issued policy which required any “staffer” entering a nursing home to produce a negative COVID-19 test result.

Place yourself in the role of a nursing home administrator in this situation, and respond to the following:

  • What are the gaps in this policy? (Policy is italicized above).
  • Does scientific evidence support this approach? Why or why not?
  • Because this is mandated by the state, your facility must comply. Briefly explain how you will ensure compliance, while maintaining integrity of evidence-based practice.

Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format.
