The Hippocratic Oath expresses the duty of nonmaleficence together with the duty of beneficence. We dedicate the following oath to as a nurse. “I will use treatment to help the risk according to my ability and judgment, but i will never use it to injure or wrong them.”
As a nurse we have a duty to protect the patient safety.
The second principle, beneficence is an action that is done for the benefit of others. As a nurse we have wrong things and harassment during the patient care. Nurses are always commitment to doing good. Beneficent action can be taken to help prevent or remove harms or to improve the situation of others. We can improve beneficaly action by talking to the community about STD prevention and noncommunicable disease prevention, encouraging a patient to avoid smoking etc. we can improve beneficence by doing of active goodness, kindness or charity, including all actions intended to benefit others.
