planning, implementation, and evaluation. As to how this 5 steps process has been helping nurses to plan and to provide excellent care for their patients, the same steps can be used to address a staff member’s performance shortcoming. The employee will first be assessed for performance, skills, what the issues were, and challenges faced by the nurse while taking care of the patient. The assessment needs to be done on the nurse and others who involved with the particular issue. Secondly, the diagnosis step is to identify the contributing factors toward shortcoming performance. Thirdly, planning is where the employer or manager will come out with a plan to help to address the factors that contributed to the problem. For instance to provide more training, offer supports and resources available to the nurse, and weekly meetings for feedback. Fourth, is the implementation step, where every measure decided in the planning needs to be implemented. Finally, is the evaluation where the employee’s training progress and actual performance will be evaluated while performing patient care. The evaluation will help to determine if the training is sufficient or the nurse needs to undergo more or different types of training. Reference: Toney-Butler TJ & Thayer JM. (2019). Nursing Process.

I liked that you made the point that the assessment must be done by more tahn just the nurse manager. THe assessment needs to involve anyone who may have input on how the staff member is performing and what exactly needs to be fixed, as well as asking the staff member what they feel is the issue and why the isue isa problem to begin with. I think that geting the staff member involved is one of the most iportant asepecs fo this process. I like that you ciclude the staff memebrs involvement in you r post. I think weekly feedback is a good idea where that is possible. Another importan part is check in in frequently as this plays a vital part in the success of the implementation , otherwise the staff member is going to feel that they are on thier own with no support and the plan is more likeley to fail.

The steps of this process are assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation and evaluation (ADPIE). The nursing process can be applied to address a staff member’s performance shortcomings by providing a step by step guide on how to best approach and manage the situation. First, the nurse manager must assess the current situation.
