Abstract

Nurses satisfied with their jobs report less job stress, more effective nurse-physician collaboration, and higher patient satisfaction scores. It is unknown if job satisfaction influences adherence to best practices or patient outcomes. This secondary data analysis investigated the relationship between job satisfaction, adherence to the central line insertion checklist, and central line–associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs). Results showed a decreased risk of CLABSI with higher job satisfaction, on average. No relationship was observed with checklist adherence.
