had an altercation earlier today (September 13, 2017), at approximately 1215 hours, with his neighbor, Mr. Edwin Safer (Suspect), and he needed it document with law enforcement.

In our nursing practice, the nurse is required to hold essential skills of clinical judgment and be a patient advocate to ensure the safety and the well-being of the patient we care for. Patient safety can be compromised if nurses are not able to identify potential issues thru assessment of the patient's sign and symptoms. Patient safety can also be compromised if nurses are afraid to speak up for our patient and question what we think or feel are unsafe acts or orders.
More and more children and adolescents are using self-harm as a coping mechanism to mange their mentally distressed state-of-mind. Children who are experiencing a mental crisis are commonly referred to an acute inpatient psychiatric setting where they are to regain safe and effective functioning so they can return to their homes and communities. Over the past decade, inpatient admissions for pediatric patients have significantly increased by 68% due to the exhibition of self-injurious behaviors and increased suicidal ideation (YoungMinds, 2015). The focus of this paper is to introduce the quality improvement proposal of implementing a safety plan for staff to adhere to in order to promote ultimate patient safety on an inpatient child and adolescent psychiatric unit. The following information will also reflect the practice and challenges of the psychiatric team at St. Elizabeth Hospital in order to achieve ultimate patient safety.
I called the constituent one more time and she said that is struggling with CW Roseburg since last 11 months. She said that her CW case got three different workers assigned and no one did their job.
To test the intervention, a safety simulation class will be set up to challenge the nurse to problem solve and utilize critical thinking skills. The simulation will have conscious sedation medication, monitoring equipment and teaching tools. During the simulation, the nurse will utilize clinical judgement the what if in a situation, decision making and a thorough assessment. The nurse will be able to ask questions, practice without causing harm and criticism. Feedback that the nurse will collaborate with the interdisciplinary team to focus on improvements, monitor the severity and the high RPN, ensure the risk is at an acceptable level, and a corrective plan is implemented. The organization will conduct a monthly analysis to ensure the plan
Developing a researchable question is one of the challenging tasks a researcher encounters when initiating a project. Either unanswered issues in current clinical practice or alternative therapies may provoke an investigator to formulate a clinical research question. Yet, research is useful only when putting into practice what is learned from research .Still implementing evidence-based safety practices are difficult and need more strategies most of the time that address the complexity of systems of care, individual practitioners, senior leadership, ultimately changing health care cultures to be evidence-based safety practice environments.

Running Head: Critical Incident Analysis Critical Incident Analysis 7 Critical Incident Analysis Rebecca H. Thomas Simmons College Introduction As a social worker, there will be times when conflict arises when practicing group work, which can be a source of fear and anxiety for a worker?s (Kendler, 2002). However, if provided the necessary skills, workers will be able to better navigate conflict when it does arise. This article explores a moment of conflict within in a group that can be identified as a critical incident. A critical incident, in the context of group work, can be described as a moment in practice situations that address difficult questions or concerns, can be an opportunity to explore differences and how we manage them, or present dilemmas. If not addressed and the conflict remains unresolved it can have an impact on the outcome of the group (need to cite). To better understand how a critical incident can be addressed by a worker, this paper will examine the group setting, it?s purpose, analyze a critical incident, demands for work, and interventions. Furthermore, issues of the ethical dilemmas as it relates to group work will be addressed and conclude with a reflection on the process of analyzing a critical incident.
• Control the risks identified through a workplace risk assessment. Young employees (i.e. those of legal working age) could perform the same tasks in the same workplace if those risks are reduced or removed.
