An incident that involved a process at my place of work that involves ineffective communication is an insulin drip policy change that came out. A new policy came out with a new method of administering insulin drip for a patient with high blood sugar. The protocol was confusing and the chart graph was difficult to understand.

Nurses play an important role in improving health standards. Hence, they need to be updated about theoretical and practical knowledge in this field. Some barriers would be resistance to change from nursing staff and also methods of teaching and educating the new protocols. To help staff accept the new bundle of practices fully, ensure that they understand that those practices offer promising strategies for providing high-quality care for patients. Identify and minimize practical barriers to using the new practices, such as inadequate access to supplies and at all at all levels, engage staff to gain their support and buy-in to the improvement effort and help tailor the practices in pressure ulcer prevention. If all these things are done properly, implementation can be put in place and the nurses can know what to do and what protocol to safely follow.
