Uncertainty, according to the theory put into place by Merle Mishel, is the inablility to determine the meaning of illness-related events because of a lack of sufficient cues that allow patients to assign value to objects or events and accurately predict outcomes (Elphee, 2008). This author believes it is important for nurses to completely understand the patient as a whole and what they are experiencing when faced with a new and frightening diagnosis. It is necessary to supply patients with sufficient information regarding their diagnosis, if they desire. This author believes the Theory of Uncertainty may help the nurse understand more fully what challenges and uncertainty the patient is presented with when undergoing a new diagnosis. Mishel’s Uncertainty of Illness Theory is a middle-range theory indicating the theory is not overly broad or narrow (Black, 2014).

As much as the healthcare employees try to prevent medical errors, they still can happen. It is necessary to recognize the medical error in order to provide proper care to the patient, report the error and then take an action to prevent the error from happening again (Dovey, Kuzel, Phillips, and Woolf, 2004). The sentinel events are the worst. They involve death, psychological injury, or the "risk thereof."
