    00:01 All right, so we talked about patient safety and how absolutely huge this is.

    00:06 So don't forget that the culture of safety is created through a whole collaboration of a team to make that patient safe.

    00:14 We talked about all these different facets, it was a lot of material, but hopefully you understand why it's so important for a patient to be safe.

    00:23 So there's lots of different risks that should be identified with a patient's plan of care.

    00:30 Also, we talked about lots of those screening tools to help reduce that risk, and help keep our patients safe.

    00:37 One of the number one things that we noted today is how absolutely tons of falls there can be in the hospital setting.

    00:46 Can you believe how big that number is? So unfortunately, that is something that happens in the acute care setting very commonly and we definitely want to prevent this.

    00:58 So we also need to remember that med safety.

    01:02 Man, I pound this into my nursing students day in day out.

    01:05 So always remembering those seven rights of medication administration.

    01:09 If we develop good habits, we're going to help keep that patient safe.

    01:14 And don't forget those serious never events.

    01:19 They sounded pretty wild, right? But that stuff actually can happen in healthcare.

    01:23 So why it's so important? If it does happen, we've got to report it to the government agency.

    01:28 So I know it's a lot of material guys.

    01:30 I want to thank you for your time.

    01:33 Please know that patient safety is so very important at the forefront of what we do.

    01:37 Thank you for your time.
