Based on the Final Project scenario and the National Patient Safety Goals, submit a publish of your analysis of the regulation(s) that address the safety issue you chose in the given scenario. Your analysis should include the identification of healthcare regulations or accreditation standards related to the safety issue and the analysis of their impact on the given organization.
The event began with the admission of two patients with similar names; the names Joan Smith and Jane Smyth are used. Smith was a direct admission to the telemetry unit, and Smyth was a transfer. Smith was subsequently transferred from telemetry to oncology.
On the day of the procedure, electrophysiology telephones telemetry seeking Smith, but an unidentified telemetry staff member incorrectly reports that she has been transferred to oncology, mistaking Smith for Smyth. Electrophysiology telephones oncology seeking Smith, and Smith’s nurse agrees to transport her to electrophysiology for the procedure despite the lack of a written order. Smith states that she does not want to undergo the procedure.
Smith and her chart are delivered to electrophysiology. Given the patient’s reluctance to undergo the procedure, the attending physician is called, and, despite having met Jane Smyth, the scheduled patient, the prior evening, the attending physician does not recognize that Smith is not Smyth. The attending physician instructs the nurse to prepare Smith for surgery and states that she has agreed to surgery. An electrophysiology nurse notices the consent form is missing, although the daily schedule reports that it has been obtained, and she notifies the fellow scheduled to do the procedure. The fellow notes a lack of pertinent information in the patient chart but proceeds to discuss the procedure with Smith and obtains her consent.
Approximately 45 minutes after Smith was transported to electrophysiology, an oncology resident discovers she is not in her bed and has been transported for a procedure. The resident goes to electrophysiology to determine why she has been transported there. Informed that she had been previously scheduled for the procedure, the resident assumes the attending physician has simply failed to inform him, and he leaves the unit satisfied. Approximately one hour and 15 minutes after transport, the procedure begins on Smith. Forty minutes later, a second nurse calls from telemetry to inquire why Smyth, the scheduled patient, has not been called to electrophysiology. At approximately the same time, the charge nurse in electrophysiology notices that Smith’s name does not match any name on the daily schedule. Neither discovery results in recognition of the misidentification. The telemetry nurse is told to send Smyth to the unit, and the charge nurse’s discovery is related to and dismissed by the fellow, who was at a demanding part of the procedure.
Approximately one hour after beginning the procedure, an interventional radiology attending physician goes to check Smith and is told she has been transported to electrophysiology. He follows up with electrophysiology, where the attending physician maintains that Smith is in fact Smyth. At this point, the charge nurse informs him that Smith is on the table, and a review of the patient chart bears this out. The procedure is stopped, and the patient is returned to oncology. The attending physician subsequently explains the error to the patient and her family.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.
