Practices that do not improve patient outcomes should be eliminated. In addition, clinicians need to help patients and family members understand monitoring systems. Continual assessment of changing conditions, critical reflection, critical reasoning, and clinical judgment are all supported with the use of appropriate 37 technology (Benner, Hughes, and Sutphen, 2008). Safe care practices depend on these habits of the mind as well as reliable and accurate technology. The potential for error is evident at many junctures in today’s complex hospital systems and the critical care unit is the hub of such concentrated complexity, making surveillance essential for safe patient care.

The richness of multiple learners with a variety of experience adds value to the learning environment and promotes multidisciplinary communication, an important factor in critical care safe practices, although this is an area that remains understudied. Kleinpell and Goolsby (2006) evaluated ACNP practice identified by 635 national ACNPs from survey data associated with the 2004 American Academy of Nurse Practitioner database. The majority of studies reviewed the impact of ACNPs and physician assistants in acute and critical care, ranging from evaluating specific patient care and disease management outcomes to communication, compliance with guidelines, and other process management strategies.
