Patient safety is the priority objective within the healthcare system (Harjai & Tiwari, 2009; Robert & Petersen, 2013; Robson, Clark, Pinnock, White, & Baxendale, 2013; Vaismoradi, Salsali, & Marck, 2011). The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has estimated that more than 98,000 people die from medical mistakes every year, with an additional one million patients suffering injures (Fero, Witsberger, Wesmiller, Zullo, & Hoffman, 2008, p. 140). In the hospital setting, registered nurses (RNs) are in close daily contact with patients at the bedside, playing a crucial role in identifying deteriorating patients or non-safe patient situations (Henneman et al., 2010; Vaismoradi et al., 2011). Nurses oversee, coordinate, and provide direct patient care, becoming a barrier between the patient and potential safety hazards in the health care system (Despins, Scott-Crawford, & Rouder, 2010; Frith, Anderson, Tseng, & Fong, 2012; Vaismoradi et al., 2011).
