Assuring Patient Safety through Applying Proper Nursing Procedures and Communication in the Intensive Care Unit

Introduction

            Nurses are noted to be known for their role in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. They assist and they assure the patients of a good sense of recovery. Relatively though, more is expected from a nurse serving in the Intensive Care Unit. From the term “intensive’, it could be understood that nurses situated in this position are expected to give double if not triple the attention that they give to their patients and increase the cooperation that they have with their colleagues attending to the patients in the said section of the hospital. It is very important that nurses are properly briefed about the role that they play in the ICU not only for the patients but also for their colleagues, especially that of the doctors who are assigned to give attention to the individuals in the said area of the healthcare facility they serve.
