Topic background:
The quality and safety of patient care can be influenced by an array of local and global factors. Patient safety depends on nurses having a thorough knowledge of the legal and ethical principles of nursing practice that govern the profession in Australia. This includes knowledge of professional and ethical standards relevant to nursing. Furthermore, to ensure nurses provide consistently safe and quality care, they must be adept and experienced at working in teams in addition to engaging in routine reflection about their practice. This assessment task provides you with the opportunity to further develop and deepen the above mentioned skills. This will be beneficial for your clinical placements and will build upon the knowledge and skills gained in this assessment task throughout your degree.
You are to consider the following scenari0
Discuss the local and system factors that might have impacted on quality and safety in this scenario.
You are a student nurse undertaking clinical placement on a busy medical ward. You are working with Lisa who is an experienced registered nurse. For the past four days you and Lisa have been caring for Mrs Alice Johannsson, a 68 year old woman who was admitted with pneumonia. It is obvious that Lisa is fond of Mrs Johannsson, but over the last two days Lisa has been joking with you and Mrs Johannsson that Mrs Johannsson is Lisa’s ‘new mother’. In an instance where you were taking Mrs Johannsson’s vital signs, you heard Lisa tell Mrs Johannsson that her mother died last year after being unwell with breast cancer for two years. Lisa had disclosed to Mrs Johannsson that her family had fought over her mother’s end of life care and that there were ongoing issues with her mother’s will. Lisa admits she misses her mum very much and she wishes her mother was still alive because she is lonely. You and Lisa are not caring for Mrs Johannsson on the morning of Mrs Johannsson’s discharge but you walk past her room and you observe Lisa giving Mrs Johannsson a quilt and exchanging mobile numbers.

Introduction
For nursing professionals patient care can be of two types, direct and indirect patient care. Direct patient care meets the criteria of direct interaction with the patient. Indirect patient care involves supporting activities with senior nursing professionals. Junior nursing staffs have to get involved in supporting activities with their seniors.
Impact of local factors on the quality and safety of patient care
The local factors that have impacts on the quality and safety of the patient Mrs Johannsson are patient-based socio-demographic variables, cooperation in different patient activities, giving support to the patient so that she gets cured by obtaining the best care of pneumonia. There are also other factors like physician socio-demographic variables, the competence of the physician, and others (Butler, Hall, & Copnell, 2016). Thus, these are some of the moral characteristics that have a huge impact on Mrs Johannsson. The patient-based socio-demographic variables include the disease parameters. Thus, patient care has been largely dependent on the type of disease of the patient. For...
