In case anyone was interested…

The retraction notice is in British Journal of Nursing, 2007; Vol 16 No 15, p915.

“Re: Dealey C, Duncan CP (2007) Patients’ feelings about hand washing, MRSA status and patient information. British Journal

of Nursing 16(1): 34–8

It has been brought to the attention of BJN that there was incorrect interpretation of statistical results in this article.

Additionally, one of the statistical P-values has also been found to be wrong. Thus, any conclusions drawn from these

results should be disregarded.

In particular, the association between past admissions and anxiety was given as P=-0.046, history of methicillin-resistant

Staphylococcus aureus infection and anxiety is given as P=0.01 and between badge wearing and anxiety P=-0.002. The

correct conclusion that should have been drawn from these results is that there is NO association in all three cases.

Additionally, the P-value given for the fi rst of these (P=-0.046) is incorrect.

Due to the seriousness of these errors, BJN retracts this article in full. “

 

Kind regards

Subject: [[SPAM]] - Retraction of a paper from pubmed

 

Hi all,

I was asked to find this paper https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17353833

I then saw it had been retracted. However I can’t see why it was retracted.

Does anyone know how I can find this out?

Many thanks

Tim
