Define the question using PICOT format: In hospitalized patients(P), how does daily CHG bathing(I) compare to daily soap and water baths(C) in reducing infection rates(O) across a hospital stay(T)?
What research databases will be used in search of the literature and why?
What search terms will be used and what parameters will be set (i.e. years, language, keywords, etc.)? Document at least one reference in APA format.
What are the inclusion and exclusion criteria?
P: Patient/Problem: in hospitalized patients
I: Intervention how does daily CHG bathing
C: Comparison compare to daily soap and water baths
O: Outcome in reducing infection rates
T: Timing across the hospital stay
Create an EBP research question that is clearly stated. (This should be one sentence only and in the form of a question). In hospitalized patients(P), how does daily CHG bathing(I) superior to daily soap and water baths(C) in reducing infection rates(O) across the hospital stay(T)?

Inclusion Criteria: systematic review, meta-analyses, RCTs. Inpatient infection rates, sepsis rates, data from 2010-current. We will include research surrounding inpatient populations,demographic, clinical, and geographic characteristics.
Exclusion Criteria: background information/expert opinion, case-control studies, cohort studies. Evidence prior to 2010. Outpatient infection rates. Infection occurring after hospital discharge. Exclude outpatient population, eligible individuals that make them highly likely to be lost to follow-up, miss scheduled appointments to collect data, provide inaccurate data, have comorbidities that could bias the results of the study, or increase their risk for adverse events.
