Abstract Patients have a right to receive the best treatment possible in medical settings around the world. Sometimes a patient can refuse that treatment and as nurses we have to stand by and let that happen. Despite the fact that informed consent is not always directly obtained by a nurse, we still have a duty to assist the physician and patient in order to make the process as fluid and smooth as possible. One of the best interventions we can implement is guide a patient by educating them so that they understand the procedure and the risks involved with it; by doing so, we preserve patient autonomy. As nurses we establish a bond with our patients and we want to help them as much as we can, so obtaining consent from a patient and making sure
Although they are careless to handle the preparation of medication, there should be alert to patient safety and to improve the quality of nursing care which is professional. To prevent the incidents happen, the responsibilities of ward staff to be aware of medication preparation are unavoidable. Building safety culture in the ward is significant

Michelle Burke states in her study an important point to remember, “supporting both existing and future workforce is pivotal to ensure high-quality autonomous care” (Burke, 2013). This negligence of employers towards employees need adjustment because the healthcare field is in incessant
There is also the challenge of having to become involved with quality improvement aspect because it involves having to deal with diverse aspects of the quality related to the patient. The accomplishments can come about in the sense when the head nurse would start recognizing the subordinate working under him/her (Cummings, 2013). This would make the subordinates feel that they are being appreciated owing to which they would start working in a more efficient manner. The skills required to support the performance role is to be able to be willing to work for extra hours. This way, the subordinates would take inspiration from the head nurse regarding work and may look up to him/her and might turn up early for work as well.

Work satisfaction was primarily derived from their clinical work, but also from fostering a happy team and from teaching. What is the purpose of this study? The aim of this project is to improve our understanding of how healthcare managers handle the demands and challenges, the motivations and rewards, of a changing service. We know very little about the work experience and attitudes of healthcare managers, but when things go wrong, this group often takes the blame. We will explore the impact managers have on the quality and outcomes of patient care, and we also want to find out how changes to working practices are managed after serious or ‘extreme’ incidents.
The way that Sinek describes how a team should run and how a leader should really act not only makes sense to me but also seems like it could create a stronger and more united workforce. I believe that the environment in which one works has a lot to do with how effective they work as a team. In healthcare, working as a team is essential and possibly life saving. Nurses and other health care professionals cannot be expected to know everything that they will ever need to know about taking care of a patient and inevitably will need to use the support of others around them. Sinek explained that for workers, “If the conditions are wrong we are forced to expend our own time and energy to protect ourselves from each other.
Risk management is critical to every organization. Assessing risks, minimizing errors and damages can be a tough job, but with the help of a quality manager. Sharing plans, tasks, and hopes for the future will make it is easier to focus on what is best for the longevity of a healthcare
