ACCOUNTABILITY OF NURSING PROFESSIONALS
Accountability means that somebody is able to explain or answerable for their actions, whatever the consequences are regardless of success or failure. Accountability and responsibility are not synonymous but related, accountability incorporate with the concept of responsibility which means to account for what has been done. Delhmer’s 2006a, p. 46). Accountability for an outcome usually concentrated on ‘who’ and responsibility is the ability to ‘respond’. The concept of accountability is to be fully responsible of what happened instead of blaming others, and the readiness to learn from that incident.
