In my 15 years of oncology/hematology nursing experience, IÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ve seen many errors and near-errors. No one is exempt from making mistakes, regardless of their experience level, and even a seemingly simple oversight can be dangerous for patients.
Patient falls and falls with injury are serious preventable problems in hospitals and are among the measures employed as standard metrics of the quality of nursing care; they are included in both The National Quality Forum (NQF) National Voluntary Consensus Standards for Hospital Care: An Initial Performance Measure Set and The Institute for Healthcare ImprovementÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s National Patient Safety Goals. Injuries and death associated with patient falls while being cared for in a health care facility are classifi ed by the NQF as ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½serious reportable eventsÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½.
