Nursing Issues On Patient Safety

Patient safety is a critical component of the care Nurses deliver as we endeavor to prevent harm. Topics will include fall preventions, how to improve documentation, implementing strategies to intercept medication errors, assessment and follow-up, wrong-site surgery, nurse-to-patient ratios as well as other issues that place our patients at risk for harm.
