This was a descriptive research survey study to assess support for resources, organizational culture, knowledge, and self-confidence in the performance of infection control of multidrug-resistant organism (MDROs) perceived by nurses in long-term care hospitals, and to confirm influencing factors of such perception on self-confidence in performance.
The participants were 192 nurses in 11 long-term care hospitals located in Daejeon Metropolitan City. Data collection was done from January 8 to February 17, 2020. Collected data were analyzed using independent sample t-test, one-way ANOVA, Pearson correlation coefficient, and multiple regression analysis with the IBM SPSS statistics 25.0 program.
Organizational culture for infection control (β=.22), knowledge on MDROs infection control (β=.19), and experiences in education on MDROs infection control within the last year (β=.15) were found to be the factors most influencing self-confidence in performance of the nurses for MDROs infection control, and explained about 14.5%.
In order to increase self-confidence in performance of MDROs infection control, it is suggested a positive organizational culture be developed with regularly monitoring and feedback, and to develop an MDROs infection control theory and practical training intervention program.
