Reflect on times when you encountered a difficult or “red flag” situation with respect to safe staffing.
- What was your reaction and why? (feelings)? What did you do? (behavior)
- What could you have done differently?
- Would legislation (e.g., mandatory staffing ratios) have helped?
- What steps were taken, if any to prevent the same scenario from reoccurring in the future?
