The Impact of Music on Patient Satisfaction, Anxiety, and Depression in Patients Undergoing Gynecologic Surgery.
CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of a music listening program in perioperative settings is feasible and accepted well by patients as evidenced by the high satisfaction scores. The project addressed patients' satisfaction, anxiety, and depression before and after elective surgery. The findings suggest that music listening is a safe, inexpensive, and effective intervention in perioperative settings.

Perianesthesia Patient Education for the Promotion of Opioid Stewardship
Opioid overdose deaths and opioid use disorders are a crisis in the United States and other western countries around the globe. Opioid prescriptions more than doubled after the turn of the century, particularly for postoperative patients. Unfortunately, many who have abused opioids were able to obtain those opioids from friends or family who had held on to prescribed, but unused opioids. One method to manage and decrease the opportunity for unused opioids to become black-market opioids is to educate patients and families regarding the safe use, safe storage, and proper disposal of unused prescription opioids.

Successful Handoffs Lead to Smooth Transitions in Health Care
Communication is a cornerstone to patient safety, and one of the major interactions where communication is essential is during a patient handoff. The handoff process is when one health care provider is transferring the patient to another health care provider and represents coordination of patient care. The information provided during this exchange begins the journey toward a positive outcome or missed information has the potential for a serious error. The poor interchange of information from one health care provider (sender) to another provider (receiver) can occur for a variety of reasons, including the lack of time, inte...

Pragmatic Nonpharmacologic Interventions to Improve Patient Sleep and Decrease Delirium
Sleep disruption is a common complaint affecting up to 50% of patients during hospitalization; the top three extrinsic factors are noise, lighting, and nursing care.1,2 Improving sleep in acutely ill hospitalized patients is important as the quality of sleep plays a key role in promoting improved recovery in the critically ill and outcomes.3,4 The normal sleep cycle consists of two cycles: nonrapid eye movement (NREM) and rapid eye movement (REM). NREM consists of three stages (N1, N2, N3) before an individual reaches REM which is required for a true state of sleep or feeling rested. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

Perianesthesia Nurses Pain Management Practices: Findings and Recommendations From a National Descriptive Study of Members of the American Society of Perianesthesia Nurses.
CONCLUSIONS: Pain assessment should include intensity, location, quality, and functional impact. The gap between nurses' practices in assessment and documention of pain may be related to system barriers. Embedding evidence-based best practice within electronic health records may improve both. Prior literature, as well as our findings, indicate these trends (missed documentation and assessment) are more global than only perianesthesia nursing.
