Patient Safety

For this assignment, you are to select an article from a peer-reviewed nursing journal about a patient safety issue or error that impacted patient care or resulted in a sentinel event. The patient safety issue can be something that you have read about, have concerns about, or even something that you have experienced in your practice. Your paper should include a detailed explanation about the safety issue and determine if there is current research being done in this area. Consider initiatives that could be put into place to correct or prevent future issues. What discipline should take the lead in addressing the safety issue? This is an APA writing assignment. An article by Judy Smetzer is suggested for your review. Do not use this article for your critique; it is provided to you for use as a reference for some ideas: Smetzer, J. L. (1998). Lesson from Colorado: Beyond blaming individuals. Nursing Management, 29(6), 49–5.
