Communication is definitely a big key in patient safety. Communication can either ruin a patient and care provider relationship or it can progress to something great. Few things I have learned today is that communication holds the key to a caring process in healthcare. I have learned that taking a step back and just reflect makes a huge difference. Today, I have learned that I also need to focus on my coworkers and to make sure that I check up on them. I know that when a caregiver is in distress, patient safety can be at risk and also the care given cannot be a quality one. I have taken to account that I should emphasize and bring home a statement, “Patients are human beings and we have to stop putting tags on them and take time to listen to them and be silent for a few moments.”

This experience has been an eye opener and I am excited to know what I will be learning in the next few days.
