Running head: The Nurse’s Role in Supporting the Organization’s Strategic Agenda 2 The term "Never Event" was first introduced in 2001 by Ken Kizer, MD, former CEO of the National Quality Forum (NQF), about particularly medical errors (such as wrong-site surgery) that should never occur. The list has been revised and expanded to addressed adverse events that are unambiguous (clearly identifiable and measurable) and can lead to serious significant disability or even death which can be easily preventable. The NQF initially identified 27 such events in 2002. The list revised again in 2011, and now it is consists of 29 events grouped which further divided into six categories: 1. Patient protection events. Discharge of a patient who is unable to make decisions. Patient death or serious disability associated with patient elopement (disappearance), suicide, attempted suicide, or self-harm while being cared for in a healthcare facility 2. Surgical events: Surgery or other procedure performed on the wrong body part and on the wrong patient Wrong surgical or other invasive procedure performed on a patient and leaving foreign object in a patient after surgery or other procedure Intraoperative or immediately postoperative/post procedure death 3. Product or device events: Patient death or serious injury associated with the use of contaminated drugs, devices, or biologics provided by the healthcare setting Patient death related to intravascular air embolism that occurs while in a healthcare setting 4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
