Patient Safety and Health Care Quality: Assignment 3

ASSIGNMENT #3 (20%) Patient Safety / QSEN Writing Assignment Students will complete all assigned readings on the topic of Patient Safety and Health Care Quality. Students will watch the posted videos on the Lewis Blackman story, the Dennis Quaid twins, and the Josie King story. Students will then write a 4 to 5-page paper in APA 6th Ed. 2nd printing format reflecting on these stories and the commonalities between them. Consider this; as a health care consumer (patient), what would you likely consider to be elements of

quality care when you receive health care services? As a professional nurse, what would you likely consider to be elements of quality care when you provide health care services? Discuss the commonalities and differences of these two lists, how much do they match? Differ?

In their paper, students will also discuss the concepts of quality improvement, patient safety goals, Six Sigma, and Quality Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN).
