Re: Topic 6 DQ 2
My topic is very complex because it focuses on the interventions to reduce mortality in hospital setting compared to other settings. I think that some of the solutions are to focus orientation training in new nurses and re-education on patient’s handoff report and receiving report. When outgoing nurse provides a clear picture of the patient to the upcoming nurse patients, outcomes are more likely to be satisfactory.

I think it is crucial to practice giving and receiving report of all body systems with new nurses. Moreover, asking key questions during report in specific cases and medication verification, specifically IV medication. Another solution is to introduce barcode to all hospitals, this system has saved many lives avoiding medical errors.
Moreover, I would recommend hospitals to offer scholarships to nurses and hire nurses that are willing to get their BSN in X number of years. Finally, I would recommend hospitals to be part of the magnet recognition program.
In the beginning my interventions were focused on new nurses, as my research was advancing, I found that not only new nurses make mistakes, but they would benefit from education. Another interesting fact is that nurses that have higher educations whether they are new or not, have 10% less chances to make mistakes.
