The National Quality Forum (NQF )defines Never Events as errors in medical care that are of concern to both the public and health care professionals and providers, clearly identifiable and measurable (and thus feasible to include in a reporting system), and of a nature such that the risk of occurrence is significantly influenced by the policies and procedures of the health care organization. The CMS denied Medicare reimbursement for eleven hospital-acquired conditions and ban hospitals from charging patients directly for these ‘never events’- or incidents that should never happen which affected reimbursement for hundreds of thousands of hospitals stays. This move has offered nurses an opportunity to take a leadership role in preventing these avoidable incidents through taking strategic approach for prevention in order to achieve a more effective and efficient outcome. Nursing effect on patient outcomes has become increasingly accepted with the CMS policy establishing an indelible link between Medicare reimbursement and quality nursing care. It was noted that when nursing staff increases, the quality of patient care improves and preventable incidents decrease which has made the ability of highly skilled nurses to reduce medical errors to be recognized, as more than half of all never events are nursing-sensitive, particularly pressure ulcers and patient falls. The nurses capability have therefore been engaged to prevent never events and also build a case for additional financial investment in nursing

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
