This week, for Ask A Nurse, we talk about how to cope with making mistakes. Mistakes are a part of life! We like to pretend they’re rare and never happen, but that is not the case. Sometimes, the aftermath of a mistake can cause stress, anxiety, and self-doubt. So, let's dive into the subject!
How comfortable nurses are admitting mistakes? What systems exist to help cope? How can we deal with negative self-talk? What strategies nurses can use to communicate they’ve made a mistake? Carley and Sarah answer all these questions and more!
