Attending the Academy for Emerging Leaders in Patient Safety is important to me because I believe our most important tasks as clinicians is to be a patient advocate. In underserved populations as those we serve in my continuity clinic, patients depend on the clinician to guide them. Many times I have patients who live alone, with declining mental status, and require proper holistic care provided within a few minutes during a patient visit. While managing proper care can be a difficult task, the office staff works together to provide the best access to healthcare and help for each patient with nursing visits. Similarly, in the hospital setting patients and nurses alike depend on the physicians orders to provide the best, safest care for the patients. The smallest things such as using sequential compressions can lead to huge safety concerns such as falls on the medical floors. It is very important to think about how each order can impact both the nursing staff and the patient themselves.
