Bedside shift reporting is used in many health care facilities to promote a beneficial handoff for both patients and nurses. This type of reporting is an important process in clinical nursing practice because it allows staff to exchange necessary patient information to guarantee continuity of care and patient safety. “Moving the change-of-shift handoff to the patient’s bedside allows the oncoming nurse to visualize the patient as well as ask questions of the previous nurse and the patient” (Maxon, Derby, Wrobleski, & Foss, 2012). The standardization of shift handovers was identified as one of the 2009 National Client Safety Goals from The Joint Commission (TJC). Even though TJC and many others believe bedside reporting is conducive to patient

Ethical Dilemma Nurses make a moral commitment to care for all patients and take responsibility for the healthcare environment they work in.

Karl, as mentioned in the patient profile has been diagnosed with asthma. As this disease is very for broad for the purpose of this session I have choose to focus on the inhaler technique. It is a technique which is required on a daily basis and if the technique is not correct it can result in complications. PLANNING: A teaching plan can be seen as a blue print action to achieve the goal and the objectives that have been agreed upon by the educator and the learner (Bastable 2014). The development of teaching plans prove beneficial as it allows the nurse as the educator to see what is involved in the process, what needs to be addressed and what are the possible outcomes of the teaching plan.
There are many things that nurses can do to monitor errors that may occur by means of medication administration. According to Leufer and Cleary-Holdforth (2013), a “[…] crucial role of continuing education in fundamental areas of nursing practice, of which medication management is one” (p.214). A possible solution could be that, just like CPR certification, there could be a certification for nurses based on the six rights of medication administration. In this training, each nurse would learn the basics of med-admin and ways that they could minimize errors. By completing this certification, the nurse would then be able to administer medicine as safely as possible to each of the patients that they care for.
Its main core is the selection of the best evidence based approaches of dealing with the SSIs and grouping them into a list that can be effectively implemented by nurses. The use of intervention processes or pathways in healthcare is effective in promoting compliance since it promotes integration of practices and procedures (Lutfiyya, et al. 2012). The selected surgical EBP interventions already implemented include comprehensive patient profiling (consideration of the urgency, patient conditions, and other risks to SSIs), use of prophylactic antibiotics, appropriate skin care (antiseptic skin preparation and hair clipping), and maintenance of perioperative temperature. My proposed quality improvement compliance checklist will be adapted to all surgical standards and areas of needed improvement.

The nurse practice of medication preparation involves the medication knowledge and requirement of environment. To revise the drug information and clean up the trolley are important for nurse to promote safety care for patient. On the above case of ignoring hand washing before administration, nurses have to pay more awareness to prevent accident from contamination which related to the sufficiency of nursing knowledge. For the task-associated sub-dimension, administration of drug is complicated because the procedure is ensuring the safe medication intake for patient. The nursing task may not only separate the drug to patient but also the daily care for patient, for instance, to feed patient and give wound dressing.
Nurse recognition models are implemented within healthcare facilities to recognize the value and meaningfulness of one’s contributions and the influence his or her actions have on others (Thompson, 2013). Organizations have a responsibility to acknowledge extraordinary nurses who express genuine compassion and care as well as exhibit professionalism as this ensures a successful professional practice environment of shared respect and support (Brigham and Women’s Hospital, 2018). Praising and acknowledging those who demonstrate such qualities results in job satisfaction and enjoyment, which leads to positive outcomes for both the organization as well as the patient. Additionally, supporting meaningful recognition models elevates the level of
