This report addresses the issues arising from the case study report of Guelph General Hospital. Over the years, the hospital has experienced challenges in the delivery of services to consumers. This is especially due to the expanding numbers of patients that have affected the normal functioning of the hospital system.

(2017) shows that healthcare providers often experience negative emotional repercussions from moral distress in the ICU, and patient care is frequently perceived as being negatively affected. In addition, the same study reveals that nurses and other health care providers in the intensive care unit are more likely to leave their job due to moral distress as compared to other hospital settings.

Although the ward on clinical placement was evidently over stretched, the fundamentals of patient care was still upheld due to the regiment implementation of the RLT model of nursing. Initial assessment allowed nurses to plan and implement measures from early admission which inevitably made all aspects nursing care
When the nurses are communicated among themselves, there is a risk to decrease to medical errors and malpractice. “Current research indicates that ineffective communication among health care professionals is one of the leading causes of medical errors and patient harm” (Dingley et al. 2009, 1). In examining the importance of communication at the workplace, other researchers have found associations between better nurse-staff communication and collaboration and more positive patient outcomes; for example, lower mortality, higher satisfaction, lower complications, and lower readmission rates. Promote communication is to improve patient safety and quality of care delivered.
