Safe Practice Policy

School of Nursing Safe Practice Police

Within the context of a positive learning environment, the faculty believes that performance progresses in a dynamic and sequential manner. The faculty’s role is to provide guidance and direction through the learning experience to ensure safe, competent care of clients.

The Nursing faculty at SUNY Delhi recognizes that learning is a continuum which progresses from simple to complex. We acknowledge that students require opportunities to perform skills that have already been learned and practiced in the lab. The Clinical Instructors will provide assistance in developing client/patient care procedures. However, it is essential that the student be well prepared when performing patient care. There is a safe baseline of performance which all students must demonstrate at all times. The clients must receive a safe standard of care.

When a student’s performance/progress is not at the level of faculty expectation, a Student Occurrence Form will be completed. The purpose of a Student Occurrence Form is to assist the student to recognize areas that need improvement (performance or written work) in order to implement safe, effective patient care

Please note that this is NOT an all-inclusive list. These are examples given for your information and guidance.

At the faculty’s discretion, an occurrence that is repeated, and/or deemed to be serious may result in an awareness form and /or faculty meeting to determine the student’s ability to continue in direct client care.
