Nursing Errors and The Stakes - ... Secondly, there is the issue with nurses not following protocol. Procedures are in place for a reason, to insure the safety of the patient. Agyemang writes, “…many errors occur as a result of nurses not following policies and procedures…” (British Journal of Nursing, 382.) Some nurses violate procedures such as, “…double checking medicines prepared by co-workers, reduction of responsibility (both nurses expecting the other person to have checked it more thoroughly), auto-processing (one nurse reciting the medication details or calculations to the second checker, without the second checker actually confirming this before signing) and lack of time.” (British Journal of Nursing, 382.) If protocol had been followed, then majority of the common errors would be avoided....   [tags: Nursing, Medical Errors]

Romance in Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors - Comedy of Errors - Romance What is so interesting about Shakespeare's first play, The Comedy of Errors, are the elements it shares with his last plays. The romances of his final period (Pericles, Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale, The Tempest) all borrowed from the romantic tradition, particularly the Plautine romances. So here, as in the later plays, we have reunions of lost children and parents, husbands and wives; we have adventures and wanderings, and the danger of death (which in this play is not as real to us as it is in the romances)....   [tags: Shakespeare Comedy of Errors Essays] 613 words

The Seriousness of in Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors - The Seriousness of The Comedy of Errors        The Comedy of Errors has often been dismissed as a mere farce, unworthy of any serious attention. Yet, when the author is Shakespeare, even a "farce" is well worth a second look. Shakespeare himself may have takent his comedic work quite seriously, for audiences expected comedy of his day not only to entertain, but also to morally instruct. It is not surprising, therefore, that for one of his earliest comedies, Shakespeare found a model in the plays of Plautus and Terence, which were studied in all Elizabethan Grammar Schools, praised by schoolmasters, and critically respectable....   [tags: Shakespeare Comedy of Errors Essays]

Family and Marriage in Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors - Comedy of Errors - Family and Marriage Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors is a madcap romp of mistakes and misadventures, wrapping together two Plautine comedies sauced with Scripture and Renaissance poetry. Yet the tangled web of estranged family that Shakespeare weaves holds significant differences from any of his originals, pointing to ideas about family and marriage that Shakespeare no doubt held, and was to develop further in later works. Plautus' Menaechmi yields a basic framework for Shakespeare's plot: two long-separated brothers mistaken for one another....   [tags: Shakespeare Comedy of Errors Essays] 526 words

Farce and Satire in Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors Essays - Farce and Satire in The Comedy of Errors       All is not as it seems in The Comedy of Errors.  Some have the notion that The Comedy of Errors is a classical and relatively un-Shakespearean play. The plot is, in fact, based largely on Plautus's Menaechmi, a light-hearted comedy in which twins are mistaken for each other. Shakespeare's addition of twin servants is borrowed from Amphitruo, another play by Plautus. Like its classical predecessors, The Comedy of Errors mixes farce and satire and (to a degree) presents us with stock characters....   [tags: Shakespeare Comedy of Errors Essays]

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors and Plautus' Menaechmi and Amphitruo - Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors and Plautus' Menaechmi and Amphitruo One of Shakespeare's earliest plays (its first recorded performance in December 1594), The Comedy of Errors has frequently been dismissed as pure farce, unrepresentative of the playwright's later efforts. While Errors may very well contain farcical elements, it is a complex, layered work that draws upon and reinterprets Plautine comedy. Shakespeare combines aspects of these Latin plays with biblical source material, chiefly the Acts of the Apostles and the Pauline Epistle to the Ephesians....   [tags: Compare Contrast Errors Plautus Menaechmi Essays]

Even parity checking adds a parity bit to the senders message to make the number of 1s even. Odd parity works in the same way but makes the number of 1s in transmission odd. An error is detected when the receiver receives a message containing an even number of 1s in an odd parity message or vice versa....   [tags: Computer Science]

Semantic Web Technologies - ... 2007). The three common types of design anomalies which have been reviewed in the literature are the inconsistency, incompleteness and redundancy (Gómez-Pérez 2001). There are three main types of design errors that cause inconsistency in an ontology during reasoning. These are circulatory, partition and semantic errors. Circulatory errors occur when a class is defined as a subclass or superclass of itself at any level of hierarchy in an ontology. For example, defining BalanceOfComponent as a subclass of ElectricalComponent leads to a circulatory inconsistency as ElectricalComponent is already a subclass of BalanceOfComponent (see Figure 6.9)....   [tags: Information Technology] 1642 words

Measuring Random Appraisal Error in Commercial Real Estate - Recent empirical studies imply that most appraisal error is nonrandom, which suggests that strategies that advocate portfolio assembly over individual property selection may be defective. Each step of the appraisal process involves an unknown amount of estimation error. The combination of these errors is unlikely to produce a perfect, error-free estimate of value. Thus, appraisal error is virtually unavoidable. Investors need reasonable estimates of value when buying, selling, or retaining commercial property, so an unknown amount of appraisal error adds uncertainty to the decision-making process....   [tags: essays research papers] 2698 words
