Answer each question below with at least 3-4 well written sentences using critical
thinking.
Key Point
1:
Why it is important:
Safe harbor
Safe Harbor is a proven and standard tool which nurses use within in the course of
carrying out their duties. For one to realize the effectiveness of the tool, he/she must
understand it in terms of how it works and how to operate it. This will make the
usage of the tool to be adequate, successful, and efficient. Care should be taken as
instances of misuse of such tools is more likely.
How does it impact my work/nursing practice:
Safe Harbor impacts the work or nursing by acting as a guide and emergency tool
which will be used by nurses as a recourse in the event that they are faced with
instances of unsafe nursing practices. The tool works to ensure the following of
proper guidelines are upheld and this helps in patientâ??s safety which will go
unaffected.
How will I change my practice:
As a charge nurse, I would like to study wide and know the legalities which

are set to nurses from instances of unsafe tasks. There is also need to
advocate for my need to recruit nurses who are more substantially
knowledgeable and ready to face challenges with high professionalism.
Key Point
2
Unprofessi
onal
nursing
conduct
Why it is important:
As a charge nurse, one is likely to encounter fellow nurse staff whose conducts are
quite unprofessional and their manners are a bit questionable. Therefore, there is
need for tools and resources which will be used to provide such group of nurses with
a disapproval so that they get to know their duties performance is quite
unprofessional
How does it impact my work/nursing practice:
There are nurses whom you will find yelling at patients or interviewing them in a
way that the patient may end up avoiding seeking medical attention. Some members
of the health community have been conducting their ways in a manner that has
caused the public to shy off and avoid seeking medical attention. These nurses need
to be handled in a criminal way since these acts will rob people of their rights to
access medical attention.
How will I change my practice:
In the event that there is need to change the way nursing are monitored, I will
address the issue in a form of write up to the concerned staff member about these
cases and their occurrence. The chapter guiding this act is contained in the Texas
Administrative Code Title 22 Part 11 Chapter 217 rule 217.12. the law is against
such cases and it states:

â??Causing or permitting physical, emotional or verbal abuse or injury or
neglect to the client or the public, or failing to report same to the employer,
appropriate legal authority and/or licensing board.�
Key Point
3
Why it is important:
Standard of
nurse
practice
The nursing standards should always be upheld. They are supposed to be treated
with the respect they have without necessarily subjecting them to pain and suffering.
Therefore, the nurses should be respected whether there are patients or not.
How does it impact my work/nursing practice:
There are nurses or health practitioners who are not registered with the system.
There is need to standardize nursing so that those attachment and internship need to
be guided as much as possible.
How will I change my practice:
A charge nurse will strive to climb up a ladder whereas those in down the
ranks, in most cases though are faced with challenges or are not bothered
with the hierarchy. There is need for leadership who will give directions and
orders so that the nursing community has chains of commands, progress and
order.
Reflective Journal Module 3: More Peer-Review Laws and Rules: Identify 3 key points from
this module. Reflect on why each point is important, how it impacts on your work experience or
nursing practice, and how will you change your practice in the future based on each key area.
Answer each question below with at least 3-4 well written sentences using critical
thinking.

Commu
language or any verbal abuse at the workplace. The primary role of this boundary is
nication
to keep the place of work more professional and to create a pleasant working
environment that is welcoming to both the employees and clients (Riley, 2015). In
nursing practice, this boundary forms a clear way of communicating with other
colleagues in the hospital which will improve the quality of services delivered to
patients. I will change my practice by ensuring that I use the appropriate language
and tone as I communicate with my colleagues.
inappro
priate
behavior
Boundaries on inappropriate behavior set rules that regulate the conducts of
employees at the workplace. The codes and conducts of any organization usually
define what actions are appropriate and the ones that are unacceptable. In nursing
practice, these boundaries may create boundaries towards physical interactions
prohibiting nurses from touching each other inappropriately. These boundaries on
behavior help employers to come up with ways of punishing employees who go
against the codes of conduct (Powell, 2012). In my practice as a nurse, I will ensure
that I observe all the laws of behavior stated by my employer.
Social
Almost everyone at the workplace has access to a social media platform where they
media
post their stuff as well as professional information. In some jobs, stringent
manage
boundaries are set concerning what the employees should post on their social media
ment
platforms. Other employers encourage their employees to make good use of the
social media for business purposes, and there are no restrictions on what personal
information the employees can share (Blais, 2015). In nursing practice, the

Page 8 of

boundaries on the use of social media are not that strict, but some rules prohibit
nurses against posting pictures or details concerning their patients on social media.
In my practice as a nurse, I will ensure that I acquaint myself with what my
employer recommends concerning the use of social media.
Reflective Journal Module 4: Professional Boundaries and Challenges: Identify 3 key points

crossing
Answer each question below with at least 3-4 well written sentences using critical
thinking.
1. Why it is important The professional boundaries and challenges are
important because they will enable me to have a clear understanding of the
expectations, roles, and responsibilities of my professional nursing practice.
The professional boundaries are also important because they will help me to
possess the required dignity and respect when providing nursing care to my
patient. Above all, the professional boundaries are significant because they
will enable me to inspire confidence in my patients by ensuring that I always
speak, act and dress in the most appropriate and professional manner.
2. How does it impact my work/nursing practice? The professional boundaries
and challenges impact my nursing practices by establishing the concept of
ethical, mental and physical patient care I should observe. The issues also
outline the therapeutical relationship that exists between me and the patient
through my nursing skills and knowledge. In addition, the professional

binderies provide the scope of work and the aspect of legal obligation to the
privacy, confidentiality and patient safety during my nursing practices.
3. How will I change my practice? I will change my nursing practice to
conform to the professional boundaries by identifying the lines I cannot cross
in my nursing practice. I will also change my nursing practice by being more
vigilant to avoid violation and breaching the boundaries such as maintaining
privacy and confidentiality of patient medical records and information. The
professional boundaries will also change my nursing practice by making it
obligatory to keep safe boundaries and relationship with my patients and
work with integrity.
boundary
violation
1. Why it is important? Boundary violation is when a nurse uses the nurse
client relationship to meet personal needs rather than client needs. An
example would be forming a relationship with one of team member for
personal needs. It is important as health professionals Each person in the
health care needs a clear sense of who they are in order to clearly
communicate their needs to others without violating the boundaries. You
cannot do this if you are carrying emotions, blaming others for your
behavior, or practicing someone else’s beliefs.
2. How does it impact my work/nursing practice? The nurse who violates a
boundary can harm both the nurse-client relationship and the client. It can impact
negatively to the nursing practice. It may even lead to losing the job.

3. How will I change my practice? I will make sure the information needs to be
relevant and appropriate, and made to benefit the patient rather than the
nurse. Be transparent, therapeutic and ethical with all your clients and former clients.
Before touching or hugging a client, determine whether such contact would be
appropriate, supportive and welcome.
sexual
miscondu
ct
1. Why it is important? sexual misconduct is professional misconduct
involving sexual intercourse or any other forms of physical sexual relations
between a nurse and a patient, touching, of a sexual nature, of a patient by a
nurse, or behavior or remarks of a sexual nature by a nurse towards a patient;
but does not include touching, behavior and remarks by a nurse towards a
patient that are of a clinical nature appropriate to the service being provided.
It is important to know and identify these situations and acting appropriately.
2. How does it impact my work/nursing practice? It breeches the trust. The
patient will never trust a nurse after an incident. It will make difficult for you
to take care of the patient after the encounter. For the nurse it means they
may be facing a criminal charge and an investigation by board of nursing.
3. How will I change my practice? Will maintain the responsibility to maintain
professional boundaries to avoid the potential for sexual misconduct to occur.
Always to keep the relationship professional. Also ensure standard of practice is
maintained.
