Patient safety is always our number one priority. A nurse has a duty to the patient to ensure safety. The “most important” actions a nurse can take is to follow the Rule 217.11 (1) (T) which- “holds the nurse accountable to accept only those assignments that are within the nurse’s educational preparation, experience, knowledge, and physical and emotional ability.” Now that you are familiar with this rule, describe a time in which you were in a situation that violated this rule. What would you do if you were placed in those circumstances again? Response includes 4 professionally written sentences demonstrating critical thinking.
