Abstract

This article presents a reflection on the care situation that involves the clinical supervision of nursing students. Bearing in mind that the main objective of clinical supervision is to allow the provision of quality and safe health care, an analysis of a critical incident is carried out that involved a situation of clinical supervision of a nursing student (undergraduate), in which patient safety was compromised, associated with clinical error related to unequivocal patient identification and medication safety. In the development of this reflection, a description of the care situation is presented, identifying the risk factors associated with the patient, finally exposing the proposal for an improvement plan.
