Erratum: Nurses’ knowledge of care of chest drain: A survey in a Nigerian semiurban university hospital

In the article, “Nurses” knowledge of care of chest drain: A survey in a Nigerian semiurban university hospital”, which appeared in the pages 28-33, Issue 1, Vol 15 of Annals of African Medicine,[1] under the subheading “Results” in the Abstract section, the third and fourth sentences are incorrectly written. The third sentence “Knowledge was relatively higher among nurses who cared for chest drains daily, nurses who have a work experience of <10 years, low-rank nurses and those working in the female medical ward; however, the relationship cant (P > 0.05).” should be written as “Knowledge was relatively higher among nurses who cared for chest drains daily, nurses who have a work experience of <10 years, low-rank nurses and those working in the female medical ward; however, the relationship were not statistically significant (P > 0.05).” The fourth sentence “Performance was poor on the questions on position of drainage system were not statistically significant with relationship to waist level while mobilizing the patient, application of suction to chest drains, daily changing of dressing over chest drain insertion site, milking of tubes and drainage system with dependent loop.” should be written as “Performance was poor on the questions on position of drainage system with relationship to waist level while mobilizing the patient, application of suction to chest drains, daily changing of dressing over chest drain insertion site, milking of tubes and drainage system with dependent loop.”

These have now been corrected and reposted online.
