Nursing Issues On Patient Safety - page 3

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.
