B) Shared governance collaboration

A) The occurrence of a patient event resulting in death or serious injury
B) Decreased ability to document expenses of care provided
C) Longer time to begin surgical cases
D) Increased time to discharge patients to outpatient care
Answer:
A) The occurrence of a patient event resulting in death or serious injury

Explanation:
The Joint Commission has identified that poor communication is the primary factor in the occurrence of sentinel events, or events resulting in unintended death or serious injury to patients. Lack of documentation, longer time to begin surgery, and increased delays in discharge all contribute to the management of health care, but do not result in critical patient outcomes.

D) The nurse and physician discuss the patients muscle weakness and initiate a referral for physical therapy.
Answer:
D) The nurse and physician discuss the patients muscle weakness and initiate a referral for physical therapy.

Explanation:
Professional collaboration includes team management and referral to needed providers to meet patient needs. Each discipline retains responsibility for their own scope of practice but recognizes the expertise of other providers. Working separately does not develop a comprehensive plan of care. Casual mentioning of patient needs does not follow professional communication channels and frequently delays needed interventions.
