Cover image for lecture: Deteriorating Patients and the Environment of Care

Lecture Overview

This session looks at real case studies to consider the contribution the broader environment of care can have in creating an incubator for missed care.

This resource touched on many key elements in day to day clinical assessment and allows nurses to reflect on their own practice. It questions the fact that time constraints ,staffing and fatigue can sometimes make us less effective in our clinical assessment. Clearly we need to maintain patient centred care -listen and look at our patients in conjunction with clinical findings and escalate all abnormal events that are flagged on our clinical charts. Communicate and escalate concerns. Discuss concerns with senior clinicians/medical staff.
