Workarounds and Their Implications for Patient Safety

What is a workaround? Identify a workaround (specific to technology used in a hospital setting) that you have used or perhaps seen someone else use, and analyze why you feel this risk-taking behavior was chosen over behavior that conforms to a safety culture. What are the risks? Are there benefits? Why or why not?
Discuss the current patient safety characteristics used by your current workplace or clinical site. Identify at least three aspects of your workplace or clinical environment that need to be changed with regard to patient safety (including confidentiality), and then suggest strategies for change.

Student Example:
Hello professor and classmates (Future Nurses) ,
What is a workaround? Identify a workaround (specific to the technology used in a hospital setting) that you have used or seen someone else use and analyze why you feel this risk-taking behavior was chosen over behavior that conforms to a safety culture. What are the risks? Are there benefits? Why or why not?
The workaround is an improved system that is a usual system that does not work well. Hospital’s workaround is provided quickly to care to patient’s temporality during risk of getting more positive effects. Although, the workaround is risky to provide more care to patients. So, when the wrong drug is given to a patient, a wrong dose, a wrong patient, leads to the patient’s risky conditions. The workaround is strongly needed to help patients.
B. Discuss your current workplace or clinical site’s current patient safety characteristics. Identify at least three aspects of your workplace or clinical environment that need to be changed about patient safety (including confidentiality), and then suggest strategies for change.
Patient safety incident in healthcare facilities worldwide is still quite high. (Noviyanti, L.W., etc….. 2018). Millions of studies have shown that people are injured, and deaths of 98,000 is a result of medical error in the US. That’s why the clinical site includes use safety characteristics:
Sanitation of the areas prevents the growth of microbes.
Using digital data-saving methods to preserve patient information.
The areas that are improved.
Reporting case studies and other health-related incidents must be encouraged while maintaining confidentiality.
