The ability to analyze problems quickly to resolve issues and find solutions
What is it?
Problem Solving is the process of identifying problems or crisis situations and dealing with them in an appropriate and timely manner. It requires the doctors and nurses to react as quickly and professionally as possible.
Why is it important?
A primary responsibility of medical personnel is to demonstrate excellence in reacting to the (sometimes unexpected or severe) medical problems of their patients. Every decision and medical response must be analyzed and thought out. Especially when a crisis or emergency situation arises, nurses have to react in not only a professional but also an expedited manner. Doctors and nurses who have skills in this area are invaluable to both their practices/hospitals as well as their patients. Thinking clearly and making reasonable decisions as quickly as possible are hallmarks of a great leader.
