Nursing Quality Outcomes / Improving C. Diff on inpatient Hematology Unit

Quality and safety of patients is among the main issues that need to be addressed by Penn State Health/Milton S.Hershey Medical Center. Most patients are prone to extreme side effects from the drugs that are being administered in their body systems but due to carelessness and arrogance of some Physicians it has become hard for patients to receive the most improved and quality care (Finkelma, 2017). From my observation some nurses don’t really care that much about the safety of patient.

Therefore, nurses have to undergo trainings that will help them understand how they should diagnose and treat inpatients without them being over dosed or suffering too much from the drugs side effects. Inpatients that are undergoing chemotherapy sessions should be well taken care of so that the side effects may not affect them even more. According to Finkelman (2017), Hematologist need to ensure all patients whether inpatient or out patients have been well treated and also taught on how to prevent themselves from communicable diseases that would affect them and even infecting those around them, for instance TB patients have to be advised on how to carry themselves around to avoid infecting those around them and also they should be made aware of the side effects expected.

Also some nurses are biased hence bringing nepotism at work which reduces the quality of work they are doing and putting some patients’ life at risk. All nurses should therefore pass through ethical trainings and be reminded that all patients need to be treated fairly. As well as all Physicians need to work towards quality service that is safe to all patients. Nurse leaders should also ensure all reports have been submitted on time to keep those in charge well informed and also to ensure discipline at work (Finkelman, 2017).In conclusion I would like to research more on quality of service and safety of patients to help understand more on this topic.
