Unit 3 Health and Safety and Security

A risk assessment is something that will be written up before an outing, the assessment covers what the risks are, who can be put at risk, where the risk could take place, when the risk is most likely to happen and how the risks will harm the service users. A risk assessment is always done before an activity so the service users and myself are kept safe and the service providers have a written step-by-step plan if anything does occur, the plan includes how to avoid the hazards and what to do if an incident does happen.
I am taking a few patients on an outing to the park, I will be assessing Nicola who is partially sighted and has a Zimmer frame for sturdiness. Due to this, that will mean extra care will be needed and a lot more risks will need be considered.

Sometimes individuals may want to do something which could be a risk to their Health and safety. As a carer you have a duty of care to that person and you must do all that you can to keep them safe but you also have a duty to respect the individuals rights and choice, so you have a dilemma. It could be that the individual no longer wishes to use her walking frame, but her care plan states that she needs it to move from place to place and you are to ensure you encourage it’s use. In this scenario you could carry out a risk assessment to ensure that it is managed as safely as possible. You would need to explain the risks involved to the individual and make sure they understand. You could come to a compromise, to use a stick for a while instead, to see how they managed, then monitor the situation. All this should be documented including any risk assessment carried out. If the individual still insists on walking unaided you should get them to sign to say they are aware of the risks involved. Another scenario could be that an individual refuses their medication. Remind them of why they take the medication and it’s benefits and again advise them of the risks involved in not taking their medication. If they still refuse ensure this is noted on their Medication administration record and reported in their communication notes and discussed at handover, so others aware if a problem occurs.

Your posting was informative and I agree with your nursing diagnosis of risk for injury and rationale. I do believe that Mr. Stone is at risk for injury related to his physical immobility and condition, which places him at greater risk for other injuries such as falls. In addition, I’m certain that Mr. Stone will not only be at risk for falls but for other injuries as well related to loss of sensation from partial amputation of his left arm. Overall, I like that you included some nursing interventions that can be implemented to prevent Mr. Stones from falls. Good job!…
