The patient is reported to have shortness of breath from initial handover between emergency department nurse to ward nurse. With the patient’s history of a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, their level of consciousness should have been observed frequently to classify the patient had not undergone hypoxia and hypercapnia. Furthermore, evidence between two nurses from the time of 0300 hours to 0500 hours, did not comply. As the attending nurse had said she left at 0300 hours and returned at 0500 hours, the nurse left on standby said the attending nurse had, indeed, made an appearance within that time (HCCC v Jarrett, 2013, 116, 118-121).
Cambridge dictionary defines communication as “the carious methods of sending information between people and places, especially phones, computers, radio, etc”. (2) The use of effective inter-professional communication is an essential part for delivering quality and effective care to the patients in a healthcare facility. Effective communication not being used between colleagues in a healthcare workplace can potentially cause patients to not receive the medical attention they deserve being in the care of health professionals. Staff members are also affected by the use of not giving accurate communication, this can cause them to not give the patient the care they wish to provide. The use of effective communication in a healthcare facility means the patients are receiving the best care they can receive from the healthcare staff.

CRITICAL INCIDENT ANALYSIS The aim of this report is to reflect about a critical incident that happened during my practice as an anaesthetic nurse trainee using the Gibbs reflective model (1988), which is one of the models that suits better in healthcare settings. This critical incident fits perfectly with the description made by Benner (1984) in a way that promotes nursing care with a substantial difference on the patient outcome. A critical reflection framework is a learning method that promotes a critical thinking from the past with consequent actions in the future, highlighting behaviors, assumptions and views.
With each passing year, the mantle of accountability grows heavier on the shoulders of registered nurses worldwide. In a profession whose roots date back to Florence Nightingale and the Crimean War, no time in nursing’s history has the word accountability meant so much. As the profession assumes more and more power, the burden of liability becomes heavier. However, few individuals know the true meaning of accountability. For many, accountability and responsibility have the same meaning and carry the same weight.
EBP is an important approach in healthcare settings. According to Sackett and colleagues (1996), EBB was defined as the way of integrating clinical expertise using the excellent available evidence from research undertaken and published (Sackette et al., 1996).

EBB requires that every healthcare professional to use their educational skills and experience and valuing their work areas. Even so.

According to Simkins (2005), leadership is one of the key factors and in some instances the only factor that determines whether an organization succeeds or fails. However, Clark (2009) states that an effective nurse leader utilizes appropriate leadership theories to guide their actions as well as they are required to apply their knowledge and problem solving skills to develop creative solutions to managerial issues on the ward. On the other hand, management is concerned with its five core principles; according to Kannan (2004b) these principles were revised and are now thought as planning, organising, staffing, directing and controlling (as cited in Clark, 2009). Furthermore, Clark pointed out that leadership and management often overlap
