Maintaining Professional Competency in Healthcare
The workforce setting
Grady Memorial Hospital is one of the biggest public hospitals of Southeast State of
Georgia. Grady Memorial has sub-sections that are associated with public health organizations,
community advocates, and medical education programs. The residents of metropolitan Atlanta
and the Georgia States enjoy cost-effectively, and customer focused health care services
provided by Grady Hospital (Grady System, 2018). In the country, it is the busiest Level I
trauma centers. At Grady Hospital a normal working day is busy for nurses since they focus on
delivering optimal health care service to patients through a well-coordinated teamwork. The
workplace culture is a professional setting where I work as a floating nurse from the nursing pool
staff department thus I all nurses throughout the health facility without restrictions (Grady
System, 2018).

TeamSTEPPS is an evidence-based framework meant for optimizing patient healthcare
by improving the interdisciplinary relationship and teamwork skills in the healthcare sector.
Therefore, it is a solution to improve the patient's safety within the hospital. TeamSTEPPS is
based on team structure and acquired skills like leadership, communication, mutual support, and

Potter, 2016).

Strategies and tools being that are being used to meet the professional competency.
Some of the strategies and tools that are being used to help improve the teamwork
communication effectively and reduce the potential for error are Situation Background
Assessment Recommendation (SBAR), check-back, handoffs. SBAR was established to provide
clear assessment and recommendation and help people get right to the point. Thus it offers a
standard framework to communicate about a situation. Also, it was designed to reduce errors
associated with miscommunication (B. King et al., 2018).
Check-up strategy is a closed-loop communication approach used to attest and
authenticate message transfer in a health facility. The check-back entails a message sender
initiating information, then the expected receiver accepts the message and validated what was
conversed and then the message sender verifies that the message was received by the intended
recipient. Communication errors are as a result of the sender miscommunicating the message or
the receiver hearing or misunderstanding the message. Thus, the check-back technique helps
both parties to agree on what was stated (B. King et al., 2018).
Handoffs
During transitions in care and to have an opportunity to ask questions and clarification
handoffs are used to transfer information diagnosis. It includes the transfer of information and
