The protocol of information governance exists to shield the confidentiality and security of personal information while still maintaining its integrity and accuracy and can be highly relied on especially while undertaking clinical decisions. Serious consequences of poor information governance by nurses can be avoided by complying with the information governance procedures that include keeping good records, taking particular care if authorized to take patients information out of the premises, seek help from information governance lead among others.
The main objective of the article was to critically and creatively discuss how practice nurses can avoid the potentially serious implication of poor information governance by using good protocols and data protection systems and outstanding levels of confidentiality. The article exhaustively covered what the code says about information governance rules, how practicing nurses should respect confidentiality, the essence of keeping neat and clean records, the consequences of failing to comply with good information governance and the essence of keeping knowledge and skills up to date. In addition, the article has rich value information which can benefits a number of organizations and especially hospitals. The author uses relevant examples to substantiate incidences where nurses did not stick to the rules and the implications of that. Nevertheless, the author fails to back his information with sufficient legal background of these codes and ethics.

Minimizing costs, maximizing quality and complying with scheduled milestones are challenges that are ever present. While notable strides have been made in specific areas of facility construction, the struggle for administration of project – related information continues. In most cases data received by operators tend to be incomplete and inaccurate as the cost of production still remains high. Some of the reasons for suboptimal information management include: scarcity of expertise, high volumes of complex data among others.
The main aim of the article was to discuss ways in which facility owners must take to control project information in order to reduce risks and improve quality when large capital projects are handled over to project teams and facility operators. In his work, the author cited personnel and job scope issues, poor scoping, poor prioritization and industrial challenges as the contributing factors to elevated risk that contribute to poor management of project information. The author used a flow chart to show how a different information filling scheme can present problems for operators. The author incisively discussed the consequences of information management challenges. Unfortunately, the author did not cite any references for further reading and also to back up his work, again he failed to give a brief history on the topic.
