Welcome to Learning Nurse Nuggets. In this section, we look at some of the common mistakes / errors made by nurses and offer suggestions on how to avoid / prevent them. Each Nursing Nugget program consists of:
Problem: identification and brief description of the nursing error / mistake
Consequence: what may happen as a result of this error / mistake
Solution: suggestions on what to do to prevent this nursing mistake from happening.
For your convenience, each Nursing Nugget program is available in two different formats:
Print: view and/or print out the Nursing Nugget program on this topic (.pdf format)
Online: a narrated e-Learning "modulette" you can watch on your computer.
