"How can you ensure the patient's safety in the hospital?"

What would be the best answer to this question?

My answer would be to follow the hospital's policies and procedures to ensure the patient's safety. In addition, I would perform within the scope of practice defined in the competency standards for the registered nurse, that is, to perform activities which the nurse is educated and authorised to perform. Such activities would include educating and orientating the patient to the ward/hospital, following the 5 rights of medication administration and so on.

Am I in the right track? What would be your answer?

Thanks for your time.
