Abstract:
Addresses healthcare safety as related to nursing personnel risks, hazards, and responsibilities in hospitals and healthcare facilities. It begins with an introduction to nursing safety that supplies a fundamental understanding of patient, nursing, and facility safety. Next, it looks into the range of safety issues that nurses must contend with. Topics covered include administrative area safety, bloodborne pathogens, workplace violence, infection control and prevention, emergency management, fire safety, and radiation hazards.

Examining the concepts and principles of patient safety as related to organisational dynamics, culture, system methods, and key patient safety initiatives, the book provides knowledge of healthcare safety risks, challenges, and controls. It includes information on leadership, management, communication skills, and understanding accidents. The book includes resources in the appendices, such as a nurse safety perception survey, an accident causal factor chart, sample ergonomics symptoms report, sample TB exposure control plan, and a model respirator plan for small organisations.
