A hospital has seen an increase in the number of its patients who develop SIRS and MODS. Which statement by the nurse in charge of quality reflects correct initial management of this increase?
1. "This increase shows we are not providing good care."
2. "I will review the admission status of these patients."
3. "We should review all our policies to see where we must make changes."
4. "I will develop education modules on SIRS and MODS for all staff to review."

The answer is 2
Rationales:
1. This trend may indeed indicate that the quality of care is not good, but this is not the most useful initial interpretation of the data.
2. The admission status of patients may indicate that they were at increased risk for development of SIRS and MODS. This data should be compared to similar data from the period when the prevalence of SIRS and MODS was lower.
3. Policies may need revision, but this is not the initial step of management.
4. Additional education may be necessary, but this is not the initial step of management.
