I agree completely. I am a nurse educator and have done many audits. I have witnessed 'Lax' behavior. I feel it is from lack of time and education. We need to make providing care easier for the clinician which results in better patient care. 'Lean' caregiving to account for human nature. Make it simple, all at the bedside. There are products out there, but they aren't mainstream yet - we need to push them to the forefront for all of our sake. If you have any ideas how, I will keep trying. :)
