Negatively Affect Nurses And Patients

Satisfactory Essays
Research has shown a nursing environment lacking adequate resources, such as strong nurse leadership, and a solid nursing foundation for quality of care also appears to negatively affect both nurses and patients (Cho,2015). Moreover, a nurses close observation which involves ongoing vigilance, assessment, recognition and interpretation of patient data, is a critical component of nursing care that improves patient outcomes (Cho, 2015). A direct relationship existed between not having adequate nursing staff with decreased patient outcomes/mortality because of the inability of nurses to provide the detailed vigilance each patient needs therefore placing the patient at risk, and decreasing deserved safety.
