Quality Improvement and Safety in Health care

The image that you see above depicts two nurses; one of them, a female nurse, is providing care to a child patient, while the other, a male nurse, seems to be focused on something else. This specific hospital exhibits a number of the quality criteria necessary to provide patients with safe and effective treatment, as seen in the picture. To begin, the patient is being cared for by two nurses who ensure that the patient gets the highest quality treatment currently available. This contributes to an improved patient outcome by reducing the likelihood of any medical mistakes occurring. Second, this specific hospital seems to be equipped with the high-quality critical equipment required to guarantee that patients are treated effectively and on time. In addition, the hospital seems to be very clean, thus protecting the patient’s health by protecting them against any germs that could be present in the hospital.

However, sure of the quality requirements that must be met to provide safe and effective healthcare are not met in the picture displayed above. To begin with, the female nurse does not take enough precautions to protect her from potential health risks, which raises the likelihood that she may get a particular illness. To begin, the nurse is not wearing sterile gloves, which helps keep hands clean and reduces the risk of microorganism transmission for both the patient and the nurse. Additionally, the nurse does not put on a medical mask, which raises the possibility that respiratory infections may be passed on to the patient.

The four main competency domains of interprofessional practice are interprofessional communication, teamwork, and team-based care, roles and responsibilities for collaborative practice, and values and ethics (Brashers et al., 2019). The major breakdown from the above photo is values and ethics which are evidenced by the nurses’ failure to put on sterile gloves and medical masks to enhance both patient’s and nurses’ safety.
