This is particularly true when dealing with patients and their families. In the health care setting when a sender of a message conveys their message rather verbally, or written it is more than likely important information; so you do not want your message to get loss or be interpreted incorrectly. That is why it is best to be clear and concise. It is important to be concise with the information being communicated making sure to only transmit significant details when communicating with staff. It is key for the message to be centered on the patient so either the sender or receiver becomes confused to the details which might lead to a mistake.
However, there are many other types of errors such as wrong diagnosis, equipment failure; sometimes patients are given the wrong blood (Dovey, Kuzel, Phillips, and Woolf, 2004). 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."
Beginning an anticoagulant therapy can be a scary and daunting task for any patient. Even more so, for the patient who is naive to the medications and ramifications if not taken properly.

It is seen by many immigrants as a limitation that prevents them from moving forward or receiving the treatment they are in need of (Scheppersa, et al, 2006). Three barriers that can affect the immigrant population in regards to health care and social services are: cultural differences, limitation to speak the local language, and perceptions about the health care system. Cultural differences – Minority/Immigrant patients have altered cultural perceptions about physical symptoms or family issues which they may be struggling with, resulting in them not seeking the care of a physician or social services. Cultural perceptions and description of physical symptoms to the physician can cause the health care provider difficulty in knowing what the patient is struggling with as well as having trouble finding a diagnosis (Scheppersa, et al, 2006). This is a barrier which occurs frequently in health care as well as with social services causing immigrant patients stress with communicating with their health care provider.
Although, the overseeing physician did not prescribe a prophylaxis for DVT, know that the patient will be in bed and not moving.

In the healthcare field, decision making could be life and death of a patient 1.Problems at the Veterans Affairs (VA) with ethical decision making.
It is clear, however, that often patients fail to adhere to prescribed medications, leading to unwelcomed clinical and economic consequences. There are a variety of reasons why patients do not adhere to their prescribed medication regimens. One conceptual model of barriers to adherence describes patient, prescriber and health care system factors. Each model highlights the fact that the medication use process is affected by many factors in patients, including drug- and patient-related factors such as patient representations of their illness, cognitive function, and medication side effects, as well as other factors (eg, patient-prescriber relationships). Furthermore, because patients often suffer from multiple comorbid conditions and thus use more medications, medication non-adherence can have drastic deleterious health effects on the patient.
