2584). Bedside report was established as a way of giving report from an outgoing nurse to an incoming nurse in the presence of the patient. It includes the provision of a chance for the patient to ask questions about his or her care and receive answers and clarifications towards the same from both the outgoing and the incoming nurse. Bedside reporting is a traditional nursing practice that has lasted for many decades and happens throughout the world. However, research into bedside reporting did not happen until the 1990s. the first researches focused on the differences in reporting either though audio or through face-to-face ways. However, the Joint Commission in 2006 issued National Patient Safety Goals that shifted the focus of research to the benefits, challenges and risks of bedside reporting. One of the benefits of Bedside reporting has been decreasing safety hazards in patient care.
According to Laws & Amato (2010), a study that was done by two registered nurses working at a rehabilitation center indicated that before the implementation of bedside report in the unit that they were attached to, 28 percent of the registered nurses showed a preference towards bedside reporting as they believed that implementing bedside reporting would improve patient safety (Laws & Amata, 2010). The study was also conducted after bedside reporting was implemented at the rehabilitation center. 70 percent of the registered nurses acknowledged that bedside report had improved patient safety. the same research also found out that bedside report had enabled nurses to plan their day and shift prioritizing patient safety and care. This shows that bedside reporting has a positive effect with respect to ensuring that patients are safe in the hands of medical practitioners especially nurses who spent a large percentage of time with patients as compared to any other medical practitioners (Laws & Amata, 2010).
Nursing practice is based on the notion that

Some of the causes of the hazards are pointed out to be man-made or natural. These hazards not only result into destruction of property but also to loss of lives and physical injuries. Based on this easy aims at analyzing the hazards that have occurred in the Prince George’s county region in addition to how the same have impacted on the lives people in addition to destruction of property (Association of State Floodplain Managers, 2008).

The introduction provides sufficient information concerning the study since it identifies the significance of the study. The purpose of the study is clearly identified in the introduction that is to prove that asioloGM1 is a receptor of P.
More specifically three main hazards within the construction business are described and illustrated. This is followed by the explanation and discussion of the role of construction safety programs in mitigating the injuries and deaths which result from hazards and risks within construction sites and industry in general.
Arguably, one of the most demanding and highest time requirement careers within the field of nursing is with regards to the nurse practitioner. Although the nurse practitioner has many of the same responsibilities and areas of focus that traditional registered nurses have, the level of ability and overall expertise that such a title necessarily portends extends far beyond the responsibilities that a traditional registered nurse or licensed practical nurse can engage in.
In order to study this project, Family and Patient Centered Care was the model used, particularly in the effort to improve communication, as well as care, to the families and patients (Kerr, 2002). This research will investigate various aspects of care centered on the patient and family, especially the initiation of bedside reporting and the problems faced by the patients and nurses.
The author of the paper suggests that basically there are medical errors in dosage, timing, cross-drug allergies and side effects, and type of medication. It should be noted that computer systems arguably could reduce side effects by screening patients to weed out drug interactions that could increase side effects.
It is on this premise that I researched on earthquakes as a geologic hazard (Fradin & Fradin, 2008).
Scientists have researched a lot about earthquakes going further to identify areas with high exposure to
Already, it has been established that there are several factors that can bring about medication errors in the nursing setup (Athanasakis, 2010, p. 774). Due to the effects that these medication errors carry, it is always important that the right procedures and interventions be put in place in minimizing their occurrence.
