What do emergency department physicians and nurses feel? A qualitative study of emotions, triggers, regulation strategies, and effects on patient care.
Despite calls to study how healthcare providers' emotions may impact patient safety, little research has addressed this topic. The current study aimed to develop a comprehensive understanding of emergency department (ED) providers' emotional experiences, including what triggers their emotions, the perceived effects of emotions on clinical decision making and patient care, and strategies providers use to manage their emotions to reduce patient safety risks.

Physicians' and nurses' perspectives on the decision to perform lumbar punctures on febrile infants </=8 weeks old.
This paper discusses the reasons for wide variation in the decision to perform lumbar punctures (LPs) in febrile infants 8 weeks or less. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 15 pediatric and general emergency medicine physicians and 8 pediatric emergency medicine nurses at an urban, academic medical center. Five themes emerged from the interviews that included: age of the infant, the physician’s clinical experience, physician’s use of research findings, the physician’s values, and the role of the primary care pediatrician.
