IMPROVEMENT AND RESEARCH PROJECT IN PATIENT SAFETY AND QUALITY
When General Ghebreyesus of the World Health Organization suggested making 2020 the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, he described nurses as the “bridge to healthcare,” linking families, communities, and complex healthcare systems. In the mid-1800s, Florence Nightingale constructed such a bridge as she cared for British soldiers during the Crimean War. She inquired about environments that contributed to patient betterment, collected data to encourage innovation, spurred education, and kept the patient in the center all that nurses do for patients. Today, the role of nurses in improving patient quality and safety is ongoing.
For this Assignment, find a current article published within the last five years on  how a nurse-led improvement or research project has enhanced patient safety and quality in a health care setting.
Nurse-led projects may be related to infections and complications; patient-centered care and engagement; teamwork, communication, and care transitions; health information technology; health care value; safety and quality measures; systems engineering; and healthcare worker performance; and etcetera. Health care setting examples include acute care hospitals; rehabilitation centers; schools; correctional institutions; nursing homes; specialized outpatient services.
