The identification of the common factors contributing towards error is crucial for the establishment of viable solutions with the aim to make safer health care. This has to take into consideration of the design faults and fundamental flaws within the system along with off and unusual events (Flanagan 1954). However, it is quite unfortunate that responses of organization for addressing these crucial factors have been considerably slow for taking place within health care. Students in the settings of clinical education hold the obligation of following special responsibilities. Students are expected for applying their skills and knowledge while taking care of residents or patients guided by the preceptor and the instructor. The behaviour of the students should reflect each and every value of the organization of health at all point of time. Guidelines and policies for placements at clinics are designed for the facilitation of infection control, patient comfort and safety and student identity. There are four major aspects of the responsibilities of a nurse that are general, professionalism, communication and safety. In context with safety, the following guidelines must be perceived by the student nurses (Durai and Ng, 2010):
Respecting the well- being and safety of the patient in the experience of clinical learning;
Checking with the preceptors or the instructors prior to the administration of any medications, the verification of which must be done in accordance with the policy of health care organization;
Implementing measures for the promotion of a safer environment for each and every patient;
Acknowledging the procedures of emergency, fire, safety, and infection control across the health care setting.
