The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) is an institute dedicated to the quality and safety for patients by helping nurses gain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) to provide patient care (QSEN Institute, 2017). Specimen labeling errors fall under the QSEN competency of safety. The purpose of this paper is to present the current problem with specimen processing and compose a second solution to this problem. The organizations that support my project, the National Safety Patient Foundation (NPSF) and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), will be discussed as well. Finally, an overall evaluation of the clinical practice project and preceptor experience will be presented.
In the 1790s members of the industry in both Paris and London were working on inventions to try to mechanise paper-making. In England John Dickenson produced the cylinder machine that was operational by 1809. Although useful for smaller enterprises, this lacked the large scale potential of the machine resulting from the invention of Nicholas-Louis Robert in Paris, which had a more complicated incubation period. The last of the early improvements to this machine were financed by the Fourdrinier brothers in London, and it was after these brothers that the machine was named. The Fourdrinier could produce paper of virtually any size for the very first time, limited only by the width of the continuous wire mesh upon which the paper was made.
What if there was a way to cure previously in-curable diseases with the help of something in the very first stages of human life, but thousands upon thousands of lives had to be taken to perfect the use of this material? That is exactly what is happening with embryonic stem cells around the world. Pro-life activists, who originally organized to stop the abortions of unborn fetuses, were most angered with the process of actually destroying an embryo solely for research purposes. However, scientists, such as Dr. Andrew Yeager of the University of Pittsburgh, argue that embryonic stem cells are the future of medicine. “This is really where, I think, so much of biomedicine is going to be going in the twenty
As the economy weakens, Americans begin to find ways to save money. One of the latest trends in saving money is considered “the paperless office”.
