NUR4327 Deliverable 5

Your nurse manager has asked you to identify some key points from best practices in guarding against malpractice and to develop a small reminder resource for the staff nurses. The resource could be designed to attach to the back of a name badge or put into a small notebook that reminds them of the key steps for best practice and the standards of care for legal responsibility and malpractice.

Create a legal resource for nursing staff that:

Examines the definition of standards of care and scope of practice within your state.
Determines the essential elements of nursing malpractice.
Appraises best practices for legal compliance.
Provides stated ideas with professional language and attribution for credible sources with correct APA citation, spelling, and grammar in the legal resource.
