The safety from workplace-induced injuries and illnesses is important to both nurses and patients. The presence of healthy and well-rested nurses is critical to providing vigilant monitoring, empathic patient care, and vigorous advocacy. Nurse and Patient Safety training will consist of learning the five danger areas that are most common in the healthcare industry. They include musculoskeletal conditions for you and patient handling; needle safety; workplace violence; preventing blood-borne pathogens, such as HIV and Hepatitis; tuberculosis; and other drug resistant organisms, such as MRSA and CDIFF. This course will educate you about these risks, while teaching you how to navigate and manage them to keep the environment safe for everyone.
