One of the unit indicator was no falls in unit, but due to improper monitoring and questioning, and staff negligence, no fall teaching was given to patient. This negligency interferes with the quality care and creates negative image of hospital, this is why it’s important to deal with it. Using the transformational theory, head nurse should clear set goals and motivate the staff to achieve them via appreciating their concerns towards patients and reminding them again and again about what this profession wants from us.

Also, they should be involved in policy making or decision making to realize them their worth that will boost their confidence, bring in autonomy and will inspire them to fulfill duties with passion. Every day before starting off the duties, Head nurse should gather nurses and make them realize that they are the strength of this unit and are blessed to be in this profession and that he/she believes in them that they will give their best.
