Better Work Place
Prevent Unsafe Work Environment for Nurses and Patients!
The working place includes the workplace and the social background. The working environment should create conditions for work where an employee can be concentrated only on his/her good perfomance (he/she has all available pieces of information, documents, technical equipment, safety aid, break during the day( lunch and enough space)
The employer has to provide safe and healthy working environment according to The labor code)
I will be talking about specific working place for nurses, many workplace stressors for nurses can be produced diseases and injuries for nurses, stressors include factors related to immediate work context( set priority), nurses experience significant phsical and psychological demands during their day, early discharge, higher patient loads. The hazards of nursing work can impair health both acutely and in the long term. I will be talking about the sources of stressors and resolution.
I will be talking about " The international patient safety goals", introduction of united state working environment for patient safety. Many counties try to follow this goals but there are a lots of financial difficulties or budget problem. The international patient safety goals includes 1) Identify patient correctly 2) Improve effectiveness of communication 3) Improve the safety of High alert medication 4) Ensure correct site, correct provedure, correct patient surgery 5) Reduce risk of health care associated infection( hand washing) 6) Reduce risk of patient harm from Falls.
