2G* CELBAN Writing ~ Writing Incident Reports

Writing Incident Reports - CELBAN Writing
Dear Friend,
The Canadian English Language Benchmark Assessment for Nurses is different from the IELTS because the topics for the CELBAN are familiar: about nursing or your personal experiences. For this reason the topics chosen for CELBANPrep Writing Level One assignments are about nursing, personal experiences or something else that is a familiar topic to the writer. During CELBANPrep Writing Level One, IENs work with a writing coach/tutor who provides individualized feedback on how each IEN can turn his or her weaknesses into strengths. This process continues for CELBANPrep Writing Level Two, where assignments are in a nursing context: assessment and incident reports.
I was so pleased, and surprised when one of my IENs wrote about incident reports as her topic for an assignment for CELBANPrep Writing Level One. She did such an excellent job I immediately knew I wanted to post it, so that I could share it with you!
Enjoy,
Kim

Incident reports are formal  writings which are often made by nurses right after the occurrence of unwanted events. One of the reasons for writing incident reports is after a patient’s fall when he slipped from a pool of water in the washroom’s floor. Another common reason is due to a medication error, like in a situation where a nurse administered wrong medication dosage to a patient. Lastly, it could be a clinical malpractice, like when a nurse failed to monitor the vital signs of a patient after a surgical procedure.
 An  incident report can be written in a chronological order as long as it relays factual occurrences of the accident. It has to answer questions like: who was involved, where and when did it happened, what happened, why did it happened and how did the nurse managed the event.
Written incident reports can impel hospital administrators to implement new regulations or can also  protect the nurse in cases of further legal investigation.

Wow! Most wonderful, S! I loved reading this! I would love to post it on Dear Kim, when we are done, if you would like. Would you like to follow up with explaining an assessment report? That would be great! Kim

Thank you for appreciating my work Ms. Kim and yes, you may post this in Dear Kim.

  1. Hello Dear kim,

    Nisa

    • Dear Nisa,

      Thanks for your question. All of the Samples I have for Incident Reports are within CELBANPrep Writing Level Two. They are part of a systematic program created to identify your weaknesses and turn them into strengths so that you get an acceptable score on CELBAN Writing. This can take two months, if you have a 7 in IELTS, or more if you have a lower score.

      Does this help?

      Kim
