  • Comment on: Hunt: 'Credit' nurses who admit mistakes to improve safety

    *'s comment 15 March, 2016 9:33 am

    What is this issue all about? It was always emphasised during training that any mistake has to be reported to the physician In charge so it can be addressed as swiftly as possible if any further action is required and accurately documented with any actions in the patient's notes and passed on at report so any further necessary observations of the patient can be made and, depending on its seriousness, reported to the nursing management and the patient or their representative if appropriate. This is fairly obvious for the safety of the patient and to safeguard the person who made the error and anyone else involved. It also helps to prevent all sorts of complications later on where there are sequelae and details are not clearly remembered.

    For crying out loud the nhs should be using international and European quality standards right throughout the organisation which involves regular input from every single individual employed to work in it. This enables individuals to take responsibility for aiming towards standards of excellence in their own work and to openly and freely communicate with others at all levels about the care they deliver and their concerns for each and every patient and the adequacy of their available resources at personal and wider level. This does not currently appear to be happening in a highly fragmented nhs where everybody seems to be jealously guarding their own corner irrespective of the effects this has on patients and the quality of care or respect for their colleagues.

    If everyone takes the stance of junior doctors there will be nobody left to care adequately for the patients!

    @stone
    Do stop pretending to be an expert in areas you know nothing about.
