The nurse’s voice is essential and critical to the governance of healthcare organizations. Nurses, after all, represent the largest professional group in healthcare, account for the greatest human resources expense, and-most importantly-are closest to patients and their families, physicians, and the community.
This book provides practicing nurses and those pursuing a nursing career a thorough understanding of the many career options available outside the hospital.
Nursing has been consistently lauded as the most trusted profession, but it has a dirty secret: As colleagues and employees, nurses often do not receive the same care and kindness they give to patients.
More than a narrative, Anatomy of Medical Errors: The Patient in Room 2 shines light on the dysfunction that underpins many hospital organizations, especially teaching hospitals, including silencing of the patient, provider arrogance, flawed coordination of care, poor communication, and lack of ownership for outcomes.
