Nursing sensitive outcome measure demonstrates the sensitive need of the patient. Poor nursing care will have a negative impact on the quality of care the patient receives. According to Saul’s, nursing sensitive indicators are outcomes related to the quantity and the quality of care a patient receives (Sauls, 2013).

Then, I can be able to evaluate outcomes. During my assessment of Sara Lin, I was able to find out that she was experiencing a pain level of 6 and was having a hard time breathing. If I had not asked her and assessed her pain, I would not have found out that she was having a hard time breathing and that I needed to educate her about using an incentive spirometer to help ease her breathing, which I actually forgot to do during my first attempt at this scenario. During this scenario, I also learned how important patient education is to help my patient understand her situation and how she should properly care for her condition. For instance, I had forgotten during my first attempt to educate Sara about proper wound care.
Recently the advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) became a very important profession due to the major changes in the healthcare system and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) goals that focus on providing patients with affordable but quality care, improving patient health outcomes, expanding care to the underserved areas, and lowering the costs.

In addition,
This paper includes a discussion and analysis of nursing sensitive indicators (NSI) and system specific resources. Identification of indicators and interventions could improve the care that was received by Mr. J., a 72 year old retired rabbi with mild dementia that was admitted for a fractured right hip after falling at home.

It is noticed that this model of nursing has gained significant success and popularity among the individuals but some issues are related to the appropriateness of this assessment tool. Timmins & Kelly (2008) argued that this model serves as a checklist. Moreover, the association of the model with the healthcare is also criticised because it is very hospital and medical oriented. While some of the critics stated that activities of living are based on physical aspect due to which patients might face problem in performing these activities. However, some of the criticism has been raised regarding the model and its implementation in the nursing it is still considered as the most effective model to be used because of its simplicity and effectiveness.
Nursing Bedside Reporting, Patient Safety, And Satisfaction Scores The American Nurses Association estimates that up to 80% of serious medical errors involve miscommunication between caregivers when patients are transferred or handed off during shift report (ANA 2012). In the nursing profession change of shifts require the successful transfer of information from nurse to nurse to prevent medical errors and adverse events (Sullivan, 2010). Research shows that when patients are included and engaged in their health care there is greater potential to lead to measurable improvements in safety and quality of care.
Based on your experiences in practice, identify a vulnerable client/patient or group, reflect on what contributed to this individual's/group's vulnerability and discuss how this was addressed in practice. Studying vulnerability, three problematic issues recur throughout the literature. Firstly, it is an important concept for nursing students to understand as Daniel, (1998),explains, it is through vulnerability that nurses and patients engage.

With a nurse shortage, patients are not getting the best quality care they should be getting. Archive stated that hospital nurse staffing, is a matter of major concern because of the effects it can have on patient safety and the quality care patients deserve. Nursing-sensitive outcomes is an indicator of the quality care and can be defined as variable patient or family caregiver state, condition, or perception responsive to nursing intervention. Some unfortunate patient outcomes potentially sensitive to nursing care are shock, urinary tract infections (UTIs), pneumonia, longer hospital stays, upper gastrointestinal bleeding, failure to rescue, and 30-day mortality. Research has focused on negative rather than the positive patient outcomes for the simple reason that adverse outcomes are more likely to be documented in the medical record.
