Project Change Objectives
- The execution of the project will help to increase awareness of patient safety measures, as evidenced by nurses being able to make sure that patients understand their treatment.
Nurses will be offered education and understand proper patient safety responsibilities and make sure that all patients are informed about their own care to prevent errors. Nurses will be asking patients to recall and restate what they have learned. Evidence shows that regular use of this strategy supports patient safety initiatives.
- The implementation of this project will aid inpatient nursing staff to closely track and monitor the early indicators of stress among coronary artery patients as evidenced by the ability of the healthcare providers to use monitoring technology to verify that they are always following the right procedures for the right patient and that they are keeping on top of each need of the patient.
Inpatient nurses will be given education on how to track and monitor stress indications for continued use of technology such as barcode system that verify patient medication, which ensures that the hospital is already taking measures to enhance patient safety.
- The implementation of this project will provide nurses with quality education on patient safety measures as evidenced by reduction in medical errors and improve safety culture and quality of service delivered to patients.
The quality of nursing education cannot be separated from patient safety. Existing evidence indicates that the introduction of patient safety should be part of nursing education at all levels of the healthcare system.
After implementing this project, patients will experience increased quality care outcomes, incorporating a reduction in medical errors, therefore, experiencing a decrease in the incidences of deaths and disabilities. Achieving these project objectives will directly impact all patients, irrespective of their cultural backgrounds, because all patients are at risk for medical errors, deaths, and disabilities when there are no proper patient safety measures. It is essential to ensure the role of stress in coronary artery patients is addressed, along with including the patient in the decision to conduct an educational process with pre-stress test intervention to ensure patient autonomy (Noble, 2019). If the patient develops complications, their hospital length of stay may be increased, directly impacting their capability to attain wellness and recovery. As a result, it is vital to increase patient safety to reduce medical errors and disabilities, which affects patients from all backgrounds (Noble, 2019). Therefore, patient safety care should always be practiced to ensure safety outcomes are achieved while the patient's autonomy is maintained.
