Individual Academic Paper: Patient Safety
Total Value: 30%
Every day in Canada, patients’ safety is threatened by potential harms that nurses have the professional and ethical responsibility to minimize or prevent. These safety concerns can be referred to as incidents, adverse events, unsafe acts, errors, and harms. Nurses play a significant role in improving patient safety and minimizing patient harm. The purpose of this paper is to identify patient safety concerns and strategize ways that nurses, health care teams, and health care organizations can mitigate these concerns.
Examine the significance of patient safety principles in nursing practice
Analyze the implications of high risk behaviours and unsafe practices in health care
Identify strategies to ensure that health care providers are better positioned to provide safe, effective, efficient, and quality care
Compose an academic paper with critical reasoning and application of relevant nursing concepts, principles, and professional standards

Identify a practice error/issue/concern that you have encountered or observed. This could be related to your role as a student nurse, patient, family member, or member of a health care team.
Clearly state the problem or event
Define the problem as a pattern and not just as an isolated event
Conduct a root cause analysis to determine why this issue may have occurred
Ask “why” at least five times until you reach the root cause of the problem
Identify three strategies that nurses can implement to solve the problem or subsequent changes that can be made in their daily nursing practice to prevent practice errors and increase patient safety

Check that all parties involved are safe.
Notify the police and paramedics if necessary.

What about commercially licensed and insured drivers?
Some people who drive with Uber are commercially licensed and insured for limousine, livery, black car, or private hire. Drivers seeking coverage for crashes on these trips should contact their commercial automobile insurance.
What is covered if someone else is at fault for the accident?
Once you have accepted a passenger trip, Uber maintains uninsured or underinsured motorist bodily injury coverage on your behalf. If you are in a crash, this protection may cover you if someone else is at fault and they do not have enough insurance or in the case of a hit-and-run.
What is my coverage if I am at fault for a crash while driving with Uber?
How much you are insured for depends on when your crash occurred.
You are insured for liability to a third party if you are in an covered at-fault crash while online but have not yet received a trip request.
Coverage varies by state but is at least $50,000 in injury liability per person, $100,000 in total liability per crash, and $25,000 in property damage liability per crash
If you are in an covered at-fault crash and you have already accepted a ride request, you are insured for the following:
Your liability to a third party (at least $1 million)
Collision and comprehensive coverage
If your personal insurance already includes this coverage, the insurance that Uber maintains will take its place for damage to your vehicle (subject to a $2,500 deductible effective 3/1/2021)
Certain vehicles offered through the Vehicle Marketplace are subject to a $1,000 deductible
If I am in an accident, will Uber insurance cover a rental car for me?
No, it wont. As long as you maintain comprehensive and collision coverage on your personal auto insurance, the insurance that Uber maintains on behalf of drivers will kick in. If applicable, this insurance goes toward repairs and replacement for your car up to its actual cash value. There is a $2,500 deductible that you must pay before this coverage applies. Certain vehicles offered through the Vehicle Marketplace are subject to a $1,000 deductible.
Expanding your personal auto insurance to include rideshare or delivery coverage could help protect you even more.
