Psychological safety is an important tenet of safe and quality care - as is ‘physical’ safety.  In addition to injury from manual tasks, healthcare workers also face a risk of violence and aggression from patients themselves, particularly in emergency departments, mental health services, drug and alcohol settings, ambulance services and remote clinics.

A reminder - for the record
A reminder - for the record

Documentation is an essential component of effective communication. Given the complexity of healthcare and the fluidity of clinical teams, healthcare records are one of the most important information sources available to clinicians. Undocumented or poorly documented information relies on memory and is less likely to be communicated and retained. This can lead to loss of information, which can result in misdiagnosis and harm.
