strengths and weaknesses from
peer feed-backs received and by
self-evaluation.

iii) you have completed a peer


feedback and a self-evaluation
that contains both strengths
and areas for development
(however this was done
towards the end of your
rotation it is also important
that you continue to recognize
any areas while you are
working on the floor this
means that you continually
reflect as you go about your
tasks and ask for assistance
when you have questions or
when you have not done a
nursing procedure and need
further instruction or guidance
from your instructor or from
nursing staff I am sure that
you already do this but it
should also be stated.

S:

v. I ensure client safety by


making sure the call bell is
within reach, side rails are
raised when bed is in elevated
position and keeping
environment free from
potentially harmful elements eg.
cleaning up spills and placing

patients record of care and
assessments done such as
vitals, ADLs, respiratory and

objective as evidenced by your
example accurate
documentation also means that
you change the time-clock in
