PROGRAM PURPOSE

Can Nursing Errors Be Prosecuted? Accountability in Your Nursing Practice

Purpose Statement

Criminalizing medical errors does not make health systems safer. It ultimately puts more patients at risk because we drive reporting of near misses and errors underground, and we lose crucial learning opportunities that might help us resolve the underlying system failures and defects that allow these errors to occur.

In order to receive CHs/CEUs, all participants are required to complete the asynchronous online portion of the program, attend all face-to-face portions of the program, complete all in-session program assignments, complete an evaluation form, and identify obstacles and develop an action plan to help achieve accountability at the bedside.

Learning Outcome

At the conclusion of this program, the licensed healthcare practitioner will be able to distinguish between criminal and tort (practice/malpractice) causes of action and gauge the level of personal and patient risk regarding patient assignments after determining their own competency level concerning those patient assignments.

Objectives

  • Restate three sources of standards of practice and causes of action in tort law
  • Restate three sources of standards of practice and causes of action in criminal law
  • Restate five types of unprofessional conduct
  • Restate five types of professional misconduct
  • Identify steps in the professional disciplinary process
  • Distinguish between competency, capacity and Mens Rea
  • Identify five intentional torts and their corollary crimes
  • Identify five unintentional torts and their corollary crimes
  • Evaluate individual competence as it relates to bearing primary responsibility for the provision of nursing care
  • Identify five workplace environmental situations that antagonize a nurses’ accountability and competency
  • Discuss how a nurses association and union can assist a nurse with upholding their accountability
  • Develop an action plan to address employer obstacles to nurses achieving full accountability at the bedside.

PORTS OF CALL

Athens (Piraeus), Greece - As the capital of Greece and one of Europe’s most bustling cities, Athens is powered by 5,000 years of history. At night, the city of Athens glows from afar, light reflecting off the ancient ruins. Today travelers flock from around the world to experience its history while on cruises from Athens. After all, the art, theatre, architecture, and philosophy of Athens had ripple effects through the fabric of entire civilizations.

Kavala, Greece - Embark on a journey of discovery as you cruise to Kavala, the principal seaport of eastern Macedonia. Set against the backdrop of the Aegean sea, this captivating city beckons with its stunning coastal vistas and rich tapestry of cultural heritage. Explore Kavala’s shores to uncover beautiful secluded beaches with crystal-clear waters, perfect for indulging in water sports activities and soaking up the Mediterranean sun. After a day of adventure, immerse yourself in the city’s vibrant culinary scene, savoring local dishes in a picturesque seaside taverna. With its blend of natural beauty, historical landmarks, and culinary delights, Kavala offers an enchanting escape for travelers seeking the ultimate seaside retreat.

Istanbul, Turkey - Istanbul, the only city in the world built on two continents, stands on the shores of the Istanbul Bogazi (Bosphorus) where the waters of the Black Sea mingle with those of the Sea of Marmara and the Golden Horn. Here on this splendid site Istanbul guards the precious relics of the three empires of which she has been capital; a unique link between East and West, past and present.

Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey - The UNESCO World Heritage ruins of Ephesus impress even those familiar with the world's other ancient cities. Though excavations have been underway for 150 years, only 20 percent of the city has been uncovered. Check out the the Celsus Library — built in 117 A.D., the site is made up of towering columns highlighted by the statue of the goddess of wisdom. Cruises to Ephesus will give you a taste of Turkish life by strolling the seafront promenade and the bustling city center. Walk Marble Street, paved with actual marble slabs, which takes you from downtown to the Temple of Artemis — you can still see one lone remaining column from this wonder of the ancient world.

Santorini, Greece - Here on the island of Santorini, you'll find a classic Greek seascape‐whitewashed houses accented by sea-blue roofs. This is a treasure trove for both professional and amateur archeology buffs, with sites that include tombs that date back to the 9th century and the sanctuary of Apollo.

Mykonos, Greece - For pure Mediterranean pizzazz, Mykonos can't be beat. Designer boutiques and beautifully bronzed Greek gods and goddesses lie on Mykonos' beaches. And Mykonos' famous five white churches look down on it all in oblivious serenity.
