HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS’ PERCEIVED BARRIERS TO EFFECTIVE ADMINISTRATION OF PRESCRIBED ANTIBIOTICS TO INPATIENTS IN NATIONAL ORTHOPAEDIC HOSPITAL ENUGU.

ABSTRACT

 Antibiotics are chemical substances produced by microorganisms which have the capacity, in dilute solutions to inhibit the growth of or to kill other microorganisms. The advent of antibiotics has improved the prognoses of patients with bacterial infections. Unfortunately, the excessive and indiscriminate use of these antibiotics has led to the emergence of resistant organisms. Healthcare providers’ perceived barriers to effective administration of prescribed antibiotics to inpatients in National Orthopaedic Hospital Enugu have not been studied in Nigeria and in NOHE. This study investigated healthcare providers’ perceived barriers to effective administration of prescribed antibiotics to inpatients in National Orthopaedic Hospital Enugu. The study adopted a descriptive cross sectional design. From the target population of 344 doctors and nurses in NOHE, 273 met the inclusion criteria and were involved in the study. Data were collected using researcher-developed questionnaire. The instrument was validated by the researcher’s supervisor and two other experts in the department of nursing sciences that major in the field of measurement and evaluation. The reliability of the instrument was done using test re-test method within two weeks interval and computed using Pearson’s product moment which yielded a coefficient of 0.82. Data were analyzed with the aid of statistical package for social science (SPSS) version 20. The result showed financial constraint as the major patients’ barrier (3.4), improper timing as the major professional healthcare providers’ barrier (3.0) and lack of antibiotics stewardship as the major health system barrier (3.2) to antibiotics administration in NOHE. Hypotheses showed no significant relationship (p>0.05) between the professional status, gender and years of experience of the healthcare providers and their perceived barriers to effective antibiotics administration. Conclusion and recommendations: patients should be educated on antibiotics use, healthcare providers should administer antibiotics as prescribed and hospital system should monitor antibiotics administration to prevent resistance and for better healthcare outcome
