According to Faubion(n.d), nursing accountability is defined as accepting responsibility for honest and ethical conduct in the interest of patients with diverse backgrounds and illnesses. Faubion further explains that nursing accountability is a practice where nurses use evidence based practices in conjunction with critical thinking and professional judgement in order to provide care that allows for patient outcomes that are beneficial.

In my daily practice, one of the tasks I oversee is isolation and quarantine periods for multiple illnesses. There have been times when counterparts interpret timelines differently and I must be able to recognize any such error, and provide the evidence to support a need to either discontinue or compete the proper quarantine or isolation period. In performing this duty, I hold myself and the team accountable, we do the right thing, and the patient will have a proper outcome. Failing to follow proper guidelines in cases that are set by the CDC could put the public’s health at risk by prematurely reintroducing patients into the environment.

Professional organizations couldn’t pick a better moment to shine now that a Vanderbilt nurse has been found guilty of a crime. The majority of professional nursing organizations encourage transparent communication with administrators, administrators, and medical teams. The American Nursing Association recommendations and guidelines have been read and implemented by my hospital for years. The ANA promotes high standards for nursing practice and has 4.3 million members. Additionally, it campaigns for public health concerns that have an impact on nurses and the general public while maintaining a safe and moral workplace. The nurse who is facing prison for homicide disregarded numerous easy nursing precautions that may have prevented this problem. Please read anything on this subject if you haven’t already. She administered a paralytic to an unattended patient during an MRI.. The patient quit breathing and died. She responded to the code as a RRT nurse and realized her error and self reported. The medical center set her and many other nurses up for failure and put patients at risk. Vanderbilt did not report the death to CMS, settled out of court privately with the family, fired the nurse immediately, and still did not change all the failed practices in place. Pyxis was on critical over ride, had no scanner to check meds, unit was giving conscious sedation without an respiratory therapist on stand by, and the list goes on. The nurse still made mistakes that should have been easy to catch if you were in a unit that was familiar to you. She was supposed to pull versed but instead pulled vecuronium. Hugh differences but versed sedates and does not need to be reconstituted, Vec. has to be mixed. Not sure why anyone would give a med without knowing its effects. ANA is irate for the double standard in medicine. If a MD makes this mistake, they go to civil court and pay malpractice money; however a nurse makes a mistake and get criminally convicted after self reporting. This has set a tone for nurses to leave the profession, not be accountable for their actions, and not self report errors. There is no better time to support a group that supports us as a profession.
