coordinated system to improve quality of care and minimise health care cost through advanced

PART A- MODULE 1
Safety
Safety related issues that are involved in nursing are; injuries, diseases, disorders,
infections, changes in mental health, etc. (Andersen, Horton & Clarke, 2017). Safety is refers to
the discipline concerned with preventing the work place from exposure to hazards that occur due
to some activity. It has been noticed that most requests for help that come to Workplace Health
and safety are related to Aged care industry. Further, the safety of nurses at workplace reducing
injuries & illness which is important to nurses as well as the patients they care for. The existence
of healthy nurses at workplace is very essential to provide empathic care to aged people.
Moreover, nurses experience significant demands like psychological or physical at the time of
work safety environment which can be harmful.
These hazardous health results may include musculoskeletal disorders, and other
infectious diseases. It has been determined that link between health & safety and work schedules
is difficult and affected by characteristics of time schedule. In nursing, emotional safety in aged
care refers to a state of emotions that achieved when people get attached to someone. For this,
emotional safety workplace can be attained by making learnings on social and emotional
knowledge. This process is considered important as through this adults obtain knowledge,
attitude and skills that they need to identify & manage their feelings, & express empathy to
others. Competencies in relation to emotional safety learning skills is should be promoted in
community by which aged people feel valued, and respected (Dunning, Savage & Duggan,
2016).
Manual handling in healthcare refers to activity that requires the utilisation of efforts by
an individual to carry, lower, pull, support, or restrain another person. Furthermore, manual
handling competencies provide standards to nurses in hospitals that they can use in their
professional practice. Theses explain the skills, knowledge and behaviour that need to be
1
implemented by them to reduce manual handling danger to themselves & others. Injuries that can
be caused due to manual handling can be acute trauma which include fractures or cuts. Also, the
most common causes are; workplace injuries and back pain. It has been discovered that, the
competencies standards aim to provide:
Standards that are clear and consistent, for which nurses should be able to do this within
their practice in aged care associated with manual handling (Oakman & Bartram, 2017).
It also provides an in built risk management approach for health care nurses to manual
handling, that will inform knowledge and learning assets.
Safety in aged care is considered very important component of quality nursing care.
However, it has been seen that the care system is full of errors, and can be damaging to safe
patient care (Emotional Safety, 2018). Yet, in today's world, healthcare providers face many
issues in care environment, while trying to keep their patients safe. Here are some strategies that
can be followed by nurses to prevent injuries:
Become familiar: - It is necessary for nurses to become familiar with aged patients, this
will help them to move patients safely and bring them closer emotionally as well. Nurses
should make efforts to understand patient's feelings, thoughts and emotions, so that they
can take care for them easily.
Provide safe companion: - It has been suggested that hospitals must increase safety
companions for patients who find it difficult to follow directions (Jeon et al., 2015).
Do safety rounds: - It is considered one of the most effective strategies, which should be
used to prevent falls, for which safety rounds should be conducted twice a day.
