Because this is an emergency and anything can change anytime, communication to provide the best care and understand each other is vital. Timing is also very essential in acute care. “Careful role clarification and optimization based on education, licensure, formal training and practical experience give the work specificity.” (Nelson, Batalden, et.al, 2011). The microsystem has to be able to manage disruptions and make structured decisions to be able to deal with emergencies proficiently.
Much as we prepare for emergencies, there will be potential barriers. Poor communication, being unprepared for an emergency, unable to manage disruptions, ineffective handoffs, undefined roles within the microsystem. These barriers have to be managed in order to provide good care to the patient. Poor communication among the clinical microsystem might put the patient in more danger. If Proper procedures and algorithms are not followed this is a barrier to providing good care to the patient because instead of being able to deal with Lilly in a timely manner, they could make a misdiagnosis or not follow the proper measures. Being unprepared for an emergency is another barrier because microsystems always have to be ready and not to begin preparing when the emergency occurs. Everyone in the microsystem has to have a
