Answer preview……….

Research in Hospital-Acquired Conditions (HAC) is necessary because it mainly aims to increase the safety of patients when visiting the hospital. In extreme cases, HAC makes it even better to avoid care at all because of the damage they may cause including some of them being fatal. For that matter, this research plan tackles the approach to research which will assist in the overall reduction of HAC in hospitals. The essence of this plan is to demonstrate the ability to conduct fulfilling qualitative research based on a specific HAC in a bid to unearth some crucial aspect of that specific infection. The main focus of this plan is catheter-associated urinary tract infections which, according to the literature, are some of the most common hospital-acquired infections……….
