It is important that these legislations are followed by service providers in order for them to promote safe practice and to fully understand their responsibilities under these legislations. Some of the legislations include the Health and Safety at Work Act etc 1974, the Data Protection Act 1998, the Care Act 2014, the Care Standards Act 2000 and the Equality Act 2010. The Health and Safety at Work Act etc 1974 aims to ensure the health, safety and welfare to all individuals in the workplace and reducing the risk of accidents, illness, injuries and malpractice.

Quality Improvement In nursing, patient care and safety is the main goal. Quality improvement is one way to help ensure that patient care and safety remain the number one goal in healthcare. Quality improvement (QI) is the process in which quality of patient care is continuously monitored for effectiveness. All disciplines of the healthcare team should be involved in QI to ensure the best outcome. “The major premises of QI are as follows: focus on organizational mission, continuous improvement, customer orientation, leadership commitment, empowerment, and collaboration/crossing boundaries, focus on process, and focus on data and statistical thinking” (TAYLOR 334).
Professional and ethical accountability is an essential factor in the nursing profession and patient safety. As proposed by the American Nurses Association (ANA) Code of Ethics requires that individual nurses take responsibility to one action to others (patients and family members, our profession, coworkers, workplace, and to oneself (Batti, & Steelman, 2014). Therefore, According to McCormick, (201) accountability is the basis in building trust, reducing fear, and enhancing morale and performant. Accountability depends on both effective communication skills and clinical expertise. It helps nurses to recognize breach in care that can adversely affect patient health outcome and be able to correct them on time.
The ideal work environment for nurses is one in which there is enough staff on duty to assist all patients and meet their needs quickly. Nurses support one another, as well. There must be a supportive structure in place, with supervisors and managers who understand the demands of the job and are able to provide flexibility and comfort. Finally, safety is a key concern for nurses, so any workplace must take safety seriously and make it a
King 's Conceptual System Theory A primary concept of nearly all nursing theories is the belief that humans are the center of nursing care. No matter what setting nurses are practicing in, the goal is to optimize patient outcomes by holistically caring for patients, families, and their environments. Imogene King took this idea, divided in into three systems: personal system, interpersonal system, and social system, and related the systems to goal attainment and specific concepts. Three Systems of King’s Conceptual System Theory The first system is the personal system. King expresses that every individual is a unique personal system that is in continuous interaction with the environment (Alligood, 2013).
Nurses and care staff are not only responsible for their patients but also other employees, the public and the entire profession. Therefore it is important that they have a strong understanding of various ethical, legal and professional issues that they may be faced with throughout their career. There are three primary duties of care amongst several others, these are: · The duty of autonomy · Confidentiality · Duty of care to all patients These duties are accompanied by the principles of benefince (meaning doing good and acting in patients’ best interests) and non-maleficence (meaning to avoid harm). (UK Essays, 2015) Ethics in nursing focuses on the concept that nursing is collaborative, therefore patients have a basic right to bodily autonomy whenever possible, including a human rights component. The need for allowing informed consent underlies the ethical notion of autonomy, which outlines the minimum standard of behaviour accepted by the community.
My philosophy of nursing is a statement I will stand by as a nursing student and as a graduate nurse and will continue to incorporate it into my daily care. In my eyes, nursing is the ability to provide safe, holistic care to all people regardless of their age, race, gender, social status, or sexuality. Nursing is a profession in which it is essential to be caring and respectful of all patients in which they may be experiencing the most difficult health situations of their lives and to provide culturally safe care. My values of nursing shape my practice as a nurse and are affected by my views on health. In my eyes, health is not solely related to medical illness and disease.
