Assessment 1 Instructions: Enhancing Quality and Safety For this
assessment, you
Assessment 1 Instructions: Enhancing Quality and SafetyFor this assessment, you will
develop a 3-5 page paper that examines a safety quality issue pertaining to medication
administration in a health care setting. You will analyze the issue and examine potential
evidence-based and best-practice solutions from the literature as well as the role of nurses
and other stakeholders in addressing the issue.Health care organizations and professionals
strive to create safe environments for patients; however, due to the complexity of the health
care system, maintaining safety can be a challenge. Since nurses comprise the largest group
of health care professionals, a great deal of responsibility falls in the hands of practicing
nurses. Quality improvement (QI) measures and safety improvement plans are effective
interventions to reduce medical errors and sentinel events such as medication errors, falls,
infections, and deaths. A 2000 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report indicated that almost one
million people are harmed annually in the United States, (Kohn et al., 2000) and 210,000–
440,000 die as a result of medical errors (Allen, 2013).The role of the baccalaureate nurse
includes identifying and explaining specific patient risk factors, incorporating evidence-
based solutions to improving patient safety and coordinating care. A solid foundation of
knowledge and understanding of safety organizations such as Quality and Safety Education
for Nurses (QSEN), the Institute of Medicine (IOM), and The Joint Commission and its
National Patient Safety Goals (NPSGs) program is vital to practicing nurses with regard to
providing and promoting safe and effective patient care.You are encouraged to complete the
Identifying Safety Risks and Solutions activity. This activity offers an opportunity to review
a case study and practice identifying safety risks and possible solutions. We have found that
learners who complete course activities and review resources are more successful with first
submissions. Completing course activities is also a way to demonstrate course
engagement.Demonstration of ProficiencyBy successfully completing this assessment, you
will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment
criteria:Competency 1: Analyze the elements of a successful quality improvement
initiative.Explain evidence-based and best-practice solutions to improve patient safety
focusing on medication administration and reducing costs.Competency 2: Analyze factors
that lead to patient safety risks.Explain factors leading to a specific patient-safety risk
focusing on medication administration.Competency 4: Explain the nurse’s role in
coordinating care to enhance quality and reduce costs.Explain how nurses can help
coordinate care to increase patient safety with medication administration and reduce
costs.Identify stakeholders with whom nurses would need to coordinate to drive quality
and safety enhancements with medication administration.Competency 5: Apply
professional, scholarly, evidence-based strategies to communicate in a manner that
supports safe and effective patient care.Organize content so ideas flow logically with
smooth transitions; contains few errors in grammar or punctuation, word choice, and
spelling.Apply APA formatting to in-text citations and references exhibiting nearly flawless
adherence to APA format.ReferencesAllen, M. (2013). How many die from medical mistakes
in U.S. hospitals? Retrieved from https://www.npr.org/sections/health-
shots/2013/09/20/224507654/how-many-die-from-medical-mistakes-in-u-s-
hospitals.Kohn, L. T., Corrigan, J., & Donaldson, M. S. (Eds.). (2000). To err is human:
Building a safer health system. Washington, DC: National Academy Press.Professional
ContextAs a baccalaureate-prepared nurse, you will be responsible for implementing
quality improvement (QI) and patient safety measures in health care settings. Effective
quality improvement measures result in systemic and organizational changes, ultimately
leading to the development of a patient safety culture.ScenarioConsider a previous
experience or hypothetical situation pertaining to medication errors, and consider how the
error could have been prevented or alleviated with the use of evidence-based
guidelines.Choose a specific condition of interest surrounding a medication administration
safety risk and incorporate evidence-based strategies to support communication and
ensure safe and effective care. For this assessment:Analyze a current issue or experience in
clinical practice surrounding a medication administration safety risk and identify a quality
improvement (QI) initiative in the health care setting.InstructionsThe purpose of this
assessment is to better understand the role of the baccalaureate-prepared nurse in
enhancing quality improvement (QI) measures that address a medication administration
safety risk. This will be within the specific context of patient safety risks at a health care
setting of your choice. You will do this by exploring the professional guidelines and best
practices for improving and maintaining patient safety in health care settings from
organizations such as QSEN and the IOM. Looking through the lens of these professional
best practices to examine the current policies and procedures currently in place at your
chosen organization and the impact on safety measures for patients surrounding
medication administration, you will consider the role of the nurse in driving quality and
safety improvements. You will identify stakeholders in QI improvement and safety
measures as well as consider evidence-based strategies to enhance quality of care and
promote medication administration safety in the context of your chosen health care
setting.Be sure that your plan addresses the following, which corresponds to the grading
criteria in the scoring guide. Please study the scoring guide carefully so that you know what
is needed for a distinguished score.Explain factors leading to a specific patient-safety risk
focusing on medication administration.Explain evidence-based and best-practice solutions
to improve patient safety focusing on medication administration and reducing costs.Explain
how nurses can help coordinate care to increase patient safety with medication
administration and reduce costs.Identify stakeholders with whom nurses would coordinate
to drive safety enhancements with medication administration.Communicate using writing
that is clear, logical, and professional, with correct grammar and spelling, using current APA
style.Additional RequirementsLength of submission: 3–5 pages, plus title and reference
pages.Number of references: Cite a minimum of 4 sources of scholarly or professional
evidence that support your findings and considerations. Resources should be no more than
5 years old.APA formatting: References and citations are formatted according to current
APA style.

You will analyze the issue and examine potential evidence-based and best-practice solutions from the literature as well as the role of nurses and other stakeholders in addressing the issue.Health care organizations and professionals strive to create safe environments for patients; however, due to the complexity of the health care system, maintaining safety can be a challenge. Since nurses comprise the largest group of health care professionals, a great deal of responsibility falls in the hands of practicing nurses. Quality improvement (QI) measures and safety improvement plans are effective interventions to reduce medical errors and sentinel events such as medication errors, falls, infections, and deaths. A 2000 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report indicated that almost one million people are harmed annually in the United States, (Kohn et al., 2000) and 210,000– 440,000 die as a result of medical errors (Allen, 2013).The role of the baccalaureate nurse includes identifying and explaining specific patient risk factors, incorporating evidence- based solutions to improving patient safety and coordinating care. A solid foundation of knowledge and understanding of safety organizations such as Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN), the Institute of Medicine (IOM), and The Joint Commission and its National Patient Safety Goals (NPSGs) program is vital to practicing nurses with regard to providing and promoting safe and effective patient care.You are encouraged to complete the Identifying Safety Risks and Solutions activity. This activity offers an opportunity to review a case study and practice identifying safety risks and possible solutions. We have found that learners who complete course activities and review resources are more successful with first submissions.

To err is human: Building a safer health system. Washington, DC: National Academy Press.Professional ContextAs a baccalaureate-prepared nurse, you will be responsible for implementing quality improvement (QI) and patient safety measures in health care settings. Effective quality improvement measures result in systemic and organizational changes, ultimately leading to the development of a patient safety culture.ScenarioConsider a previous experience or hypothetical situation pertaining to medication errors, and consider how the error could have been prevented or alleviated with the use of evidence-based guidelines.Choose a specific condition of interest surrounding a medication administration safety risk and incorporate evidence-based strategies to support communication and ensure safe and effective care. For this assessment:Analyze a current issue or experience in clinical practice surrounding a medication administration safety risk and identify a quality improvement (QI) initiative in the health care setting.InstructionsThe purpose of this assessment is to better understand the role of the baccalaureate-prepared nurse in enhancing quality improvement (QI) measures that address a medication administration safety risk. This will be within the specific context of patient safety risks at a health care setting of your choice. You will do this by exploring the professional guidelines and best practices for improving and maintaining patient safety in health care settings from organizations such as QSEN and the IOM. Looking through the lens of these professional best practices to examine the current policies and procedures currently in place at your chosen organization and the impact on safety measures for patients surrounding medication administration, you will consider the role of the nurse in driving quality and safety improvements. You will identify stakeholders in QI improvement and safety measures as well as consider evidence-based strategies to enhance quality of care and promote medication administration safety in the context of your chosen health care setting.Be sure that your plan addresses the following, which corresponds to the grading criteria in the scoring guide. Please study the scoring guide carefully so that you know what is needed for a distinguished score.Explain factors leading to a specific patient-safety risk focusing on medication administration.Explain evidence-based and best-practice solutions to improve patient safety focusing on medication administration and reducing costs.Explain how nurses can help coordinate care to increase patient safety with medication administration and reduce costs.Identify stakeholders with whom nurses would coordinate to drive safety enhancements with medication administration.Communicate using writing
