CASE STUDY II 17 There were many areas where the patient’s safety was at risk and proper nursing care was compromised. Documentation needs to be correct as well as the hand off reports from nurse to nurse. Staffing issues need to be addressed for the patient to nurse ratios as well. Training and reinforcing quality and safety standards are something that is always needed to help avoid issues like those in this case study.

    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.
