Nurses have a very responsible role to play in the clinical setting.
Typically nurses work to ensure patient safety and create as secure a work environment as possible.
Despite this, no one can predict when something can go wrong, however we should try to avoid such an occasion.
Topics include: Fall prevention, patient education in the ICU regarding alarm safety, vigilance in preventing parlytic ileus, abdominal assessment, (inspection, auscultation, percussion and palpation), identifying the side effects of Heparin, preventing postoperative pneumonia, following institutions policies and procedures for blood transfusion, avoiding DVT, identifying good infection control techniques, avoiding medication errors, identifying IV infiltration and accident prevention.
