NURSING EXCELLENCE 4600

What are the scope, duration and history of the problem? Write 3-4 paragraphs related to your selected problem. Provide supportive details using in text citations. Give supportive data from facility, community, state, or national data to explain why you feel this is an issue. Your paragraphs should be professionally written, single spaced with APA formatted citations and references (there is a reference textbox at the end of this form. Use it for your references). (Supportive data requires paraphrased citations from your research, not direct quotes)

Healthcare providers should inform patients on the nature of medical procedures, the advantages and risks of the process and possible alternatives of the system, and their impacts. Patients need to be involved in surgical decision making and the consequences they stand to bear (Shah et al., 2020). Doctors have been sued for performing a surgical operation on wrong parts contrary to the patient consent. Even though doctors’ effort was medically right, they were found guilty due to failure to consider the patient preference (Leclercq et al., 2010).

Who does your problem affect? Write 1-2 paragraphs discussing individuals, communities, etc. that are affected by this problem. Remember to include all parties that are affected. Your paragraph(s) should be professionally written, single spaced with APA formatted citations and references (there is a reference textbox at the end of this form. Use it for your references).

Inconsistency in engaging patients in the surgical decision may endanger their lives, expose them to other conditions or increase medical costs. Physicians and nurses can also be sued and lose their jobs and income in surgical misconduct (Coll, 2015).

Your selected organization: (remember this is not the facility/organization where you are implementing your project, may be a nursing organization, or any organization which sets standards, conducts research, or publishes evidence based literature in relation to your topic)   How does this organization support your topic? Some things to consider when researching…Have they advocated? Do they support financially? Are they involved in research to support your topic? Do they use it as part of accreditation requirements?  Write 1-2 paragraphs. Your paragraph(s) should be professionally written, single spaced with APA formatted citations and references (there is a reference textbox at the end of this form. Use it for your references.)

The Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) campaigns for safe surgical operations by offering education to nurses, implementing evidence-based strategies and providing career guidance. The organization provides resources such as ambulances and magazines and medical advice to health institutions to ensure quality care (AORN, 2020).

What are the implications of the problem? What will happen or not happen if the problem is not resolved? Write 1-2 paragraphs discussing the implications with supporting details (information from your selected organization and/or health care facility would be important here). Your paragraph(s) should be professionally written, single spaced with APA formatted citations and references (there is a reference textbox at the end of this form. Use it for your references).

 If safe surgical procedure policies are not followed, health providers will face legal actions, medical costs will elevate, and patients’ welfare will be compromised.

Plan of Action: In the space below outline your plan of Action. Remember your plan of action should assist you in meeting your global and project objectives; therefore, they must be linked. Your plan of action can include your action steps from week one or they may have changed. In either case, list your action steps (that you have already completed and planned steps) and provide a one paragraph (per action step) explanation supporting this action. You should have a minimum of four action steps (no more than five), this means you should have a minimum of four paragraphs and no more than five.  Your actions steps should have supportive details (references). Your paragraphs should be professionally written, single spaced with APA formatted citations and references (there is a reference textbox at the end of this form. Use it for your references).

Nurse leaders should craft plans that prevent wrong procedures and implement them in the organization. Nurses should be exposed to the importance of reducing uninformed surgical operations. The protocol to guide medical staff should be distributed and incorporated into an organization system. Medical staff should display a high level of competency in service delivery. Competence encompasses ethical principles, professionalism, medical knowledge and practical communication skills (American College of Surgeons., 2019).

Proposed Solution: Write 2-3 sentences describing your proposed solution to your problem. Remember that your solution should be linked to your global and project objectives. Your proposed solutions should have supportive details (references), professionally written, single spaced with APA formatted citations and references (there is a reference textbox at the end of this form. Use it for your references).

Persistence with the protocol goals and encouraging staff participation is bound to overcome barriers in project implementation (Mason et al., 2015).
