Abstract

AIMSThe aim of this study was to explore and elucidate the factors determining job satisfaction among nurses working in hospital carbapenemase‐producing Klebsiella pneumoniae isolation rooms in a tertiary medical centre in Israel.INTRODUCTIONGiven the worldwide shortage of nurses, the factors affecting nurse recruitment and retention are under intensive research and are studied carefully by health care system managers. Yet one aspect of nurse job satisfaction – the consequences of prolonged work in patient isolation rooms on nurses’ emotional and psychosocial state – has not been sufficiently researched.During the past decade KPC infection has been reported in Europe, the Middle and Far East, and South America (Saidel‐Odes & Borer, ). The CDC recommends that all patients colonized or infected with Carbapenemase‐producing Enterobacteriaceae be placed under contact precautions (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), ). This requires a dedicated isolation room and a dedicated nursing staff on all shifts (Wiehahn, ). According to CDC recommendations, Israel Ministry of Health guidelines require the cohorting of KPC‐isolated patients, grouping these patients together to confine their care to one location in a separate isolated room or area. The decision as to whether the isolation room is staffed by a dedicated staff or by regular nurses is
