Resumen

LLANES BETANCOURT, Caridad. Safe care practice of nursing professionals with geriatric patients. Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2020, vol.36, n.4, e2005.  Epub 01-Dic-2020. ISSN 0864-0319.

Introduction:

Geriatric patient safety is linked to the quality dimension of healthcare practice, which seeks to reduce and prevent the risks associated with health care, which is known as patient safety or clinical safety.

Objective:

To expose the scope and nature available on the safe care practice of nursing professionals with geriatric patients.

Methods:

Integrative bibliographic review where reflective analysis of the content of original and open access review studies was carried out, in Spanish, English or Portuguese, published between 1996-2020. Duplicate publications, gray literature, that did not respond to the study objective were excluded. The search was carried out in SciELO, Dialnet, Elsevier, Google Scholar, the strategy was structured based on recognized keywords in (DeCS), "patient safety", "geriatric nursing", "elderly", "assistance to the elderly", and the Boolean operators AND and OR. 60 articles were identified, of which 32 were useful.

Conclusions:

It is possible to minimize the risks in healthcare practice, and reduce the harm associated with healthcare. These evidences can serve as a reference for the safety and quality of the care provided, which constitutes a challenge for gerontological nursing, given the characteristics of the geriatric patient that place them as a vulnerable and fragile age group.
