Abstract :

Nursing personnel play a critical role in healthcare waste segregation in the hospitals. Their knowledge, attitudes, and practices regarding healthcare waste management are vital for the prevention of healthcare waste related hazards. A Preexperimental Single group pretest post–test design was adopted to assess the effectiveness of “BUG BATTLE” Mobile App for Clinical Preparedness of 30 undergraduate Nurses on Biomedical Waste Management. Non–Probability, Purposive Sampling was used to collect the data. Structured questionnaire was used to assess the knowledge scores and opinion about BUG BATTLE mobile App. Paired t –Test was used to evaluate the effectiveness of BUG BATTLE APP. The T stat i.e. calculated value was found to be 3.65 and table value is 2.05 at 0.05 level of significance. Since calculated value is greater the table value, Null hypothesis is rejected. Thus, BUG BATTLE App is effective for enhancing the knowledge on biomedical waste management.
