Abstract This study was exploring on the communication level between departments in clinical medicine on patients that are potentially violent while being treated by clinicians in an emergency health center in various departments. The study tried to address the ways through which the communication techniques can be improved between the various medical center departments concerning workplace safety in trauma situations. The researcher examined 20 emergency room nurses as well as health providers within the Presbyterian Healthcare Systems in New Mexico and University Medical Center of Nevada Health System. The conceptual framework utilized in the study started with the patient experience and how the clinicians directly connected with the patients in understanding the trauma situations and how they affect the healthcare environment. The concept utilized is the change management that allows for effective changes which might occur within the healthcare community. The data collection process mainly involved interviews with the 20 participants. The process started with the creation of lists of prospective research subjects. Interviews will be conducted on each subject with the same preset list of questions. The qualitative research will have numerous recordings, notes, and transcripts that will be up for statistical analysis. The data analysis process will involve reading through all of the collected research, listening to all available recordings from the one on one interviews, and organizing the research into common themes. All the aspects of the information gathered will be reviewed based on common themes that cannot be changed throughout a shared experience and the common themes will be organized and coded into sections that will keep the information objective. The research findings indicated that improved communication between departments in critical care medicine create a safer environment for the clinician.

    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.
