Safety is very important, especially in the work setting I am in. My commitment to safety is to continue to engage in safe practices at work and to not rush through things that may impact my patients or myself negatively. For example, after giving a SQ injection, I should ensure that the needle is capped and put into the sharps container.

I will become a less distracted driver by NOT texting while I am driving. And not doing any other tasks while driving.  I will either set my phone on do not disturb or put my phone in the back of the car while I drive.

At work, I will remind myself to ask "why". Too many times, I find myself performing nursing skills simply because they're ordered and I'm not putting together the whole picture. I've never compromised patient safety, but I could be doing more in providing adequate care.

I will continue to follow safety protocols at work and I will stay focused during my driving time.
