Unfortunately, there are many ways a patient can be injured or harmed while staying at a hospital. Even though there have been several attempts to make a hospital visit one hundred percent injury preventable, accidents and mistakes still happen. The three leading types of patient injuries are medication errors, patient falls, and pressure ulcers. However, if the entire health care team, such as: health care providers, pharmacists, nurses, etc, work together then hopefully the percentage of patient injury will decrease each year.

Current Issues and Trends One of the major issues that is currently impacting nursing leaders and managers is the ongoing problem with medication administration errors. It is a nurse’s job to verify that the correct dose, route, frequency, and duration of the drug is administered and monitored appropriately. Unfortunately, numerous studies show the significance of this problem amongst nurses. For example, within a certain study performed involving 237 nurses, 64.55% of them had made medication administration errors, while 31.37% of them were on the verge of making a mistake (Cheragi, Manoocheri, Mohammadnejad, & Ehsani, 2013).
People understandably put a huge amount of trust in their physicians. However, Scrabanek (Skrabanek, 1994) speaks of the ridiculous recommendations by doctors for women between the ages of 20 and 70… “ According to the American college of physicians, she should visit her doctor annually and have 278 examinations, tests and counselling sessions. Not that this is recommended for a healthy woman.” If women feel that they are under pressure to see their doctor and have those many tests annually, or they see other women in their age bracket receiving confirmation of ill health, they may feel obliged to spend copious amounts of money of visiting their GP every single year.
Accidents such as HIPAA breaches, patient falls, MRI projectiles, overexposure, bruising patients, and personal exposure to gamma rays are all preventable “faux pas” that are more prevalent than one would think. All it takes is the radiographer paying as much attention as possible and being more aware of surroundings and situations. In the past five years, there have been at least two major HIPAA breaches in the United States that stem from radiology departments. One major breach, according to Erin McCann of HealthcareITNews, put 17,300 patients’ medical information at risk in March 2013.
There are of course challenges; a growing population, people living longer, a vast array of new treatments, patients making lifestyle choices now, which affect their health so poorly in the future. Yes, there are cases of demand overcoming capacity inside our health system, and some waits are unacceptably long. But the vast majority of the 17,000 patients who will spend tonight in our hospitals, or the 1,000 patients who have their surgery today, get excellent care – and we are proud of this. Letting nurses and midwives get on with the job, instead of being weighed down with red tape is feedback I have been getting across the system for years.

Whether it's a doctor's office, outpatient clinic, ambulatory care center or a hospital, cleaning in a health care facility serves the dual purpose of providing patients and their loved ones with confidence in the medical care, as well as eliminates germs and minimizes the risk of infections that can be so prevalent in these settings. Thoroughly cleaning health care facilities makes economic sense too. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), healthcare associated infections (HAIs) cost the US an estimated $35.7-45 billion annually and result in 1.7 million infections and almost 100,000 deaths per annum. If the obvious health benefits are not enough, the recently passed Affordable Health Care Act (also referred to as Obamacare)

During this semester I learned how to synthesize nursing research. During NUR700 I learned that in order to probably synthesize qualitative nursing research articles, one must examine the articles, and analyze the findings by breaking down the research. Primary care providers, nurses and ancillary healthcare team members, integrates clinical scholarship and analytical methods for evidence-based practice (EBP) by increasing knowledge, synthesizing quantitative/qualitative research and continuing education. By integrating EBP it can lead to developmental changes in implementing policies, procedures, and changes in clinical practices. During this semester I was able to understand that nursing theories provides direction and guidance for nursing
What criteria do you use to evaluate nursing theories? The criteria that I use to evaluate nursing theories include first, the alignment to my facility’s goals and vision. Second, assessment of the empirical relevance to the work being completed and how the theoretical framework aligns with type of nursing care that is to be provided (Chinn and Kramer, 2015). After this analysis the choice can then be made as to the theory that provides the best fundamental basis for nursing care for these conditions.
According to Walker and Avant (2011), theory construction involves defining attributes that distinguish one concept from another. Concept analysis can help nurses understand how their definitions of concepts can differ from those of the populations they serve. For example, Brush, Kirk, Gultekin, and Baiardi (2011) used this methodology to determine the defining attributes of overcoming and how individual difficulties may vary between service providers and homeless mothers. Furthermore, this study also looked at the antecedents and consequences of overcoming.
