2 ARTICLE CRITIQUE Research Article Critique: Nurse Perception vs. Electronic Risk Assessment Tools Patient safety and ways to improve upon it is a common theme in nursing and medical research today. According to the Institute of Medicine’s book To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System (1999), “Safety systems in health care organizations seek to prevent harm to patients, their families and friends, health care professionals, contract-service workers, volunteers, and the many other individuals whose activities bring them into a health care setting. Safety is one aspect of quality, where quality includes not only avoiding preventable harm, but also making appropriate care available—providing effective services to those who could benefit from them and not providing ineffective or harmful services” (p. 155). In the article “CE: Original Research: Identifying Hospitalized Patients at Risk for Harm: A Comparison of Nurse Perceptions vs. Electronic Risk Assessment Tool Scores,” Stafos et al. (2017) examined the differences between nurses’ perception of patient risk of harm and scores from an electronic risk assessment tool in hopes that the information collected could “provide added insight into how organizations can promote a culture of safety” (para. 3). While this study was informative and provides the “insight” it set out to, I do not perceive it as providing enough evidence of validity to have any legitimate impact on actual practice due to its broad scope and limited sample sizes.

    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.
