When a patient walks through those hospital doors, just how many people are there to assist him or her? Nursing blogger, The Nerdy Nurse, recently discussed this topic in a post “How many people are involved in patient care?”
When her preceptor was showing her an infection control report, author realized just how many people take part in the care of a new patient. She thinks most noses don’t think about how much goes on behind the scenes of patient care. She sets a scenario of a patient who comes in for abdominal pain and goes on to list each person who is involved in the chain of patient care.
Patient care comes from many different staff members, The Nerdy Nurse writes, and it’s important to stop and see who else around you is providing patient care.
