Healthcare managers are constantly assessing patients and collecting information. This information is used to appropriately implement prevention and treatment for patients. The second outcome integrates analysis of information gathered by healthcare personnel to identify trends and inconsistencies within the healthcare population. Through this the origin of problems can be ascertained, and preventive measures can be instituted. Subsequently prevention will decrease incidences and ultimately the cost to
(750 words) The HCPC standards of conduct performance and ethics (SCPE) briefly mentioned in part a) set a broad expectation of the type of behaviours health professionals require (HCPC, 2016). Any complaints made by the service user or members of staff about treatment/ healthcare professionals will be compared to the SCPE to allow the HCPC to check if they were treated with the required standards. Thus, suitable disciplinary action can be given; preventing the public being at risk. Standard 5 of the SCPE states that a health professional must respect the confidentiality of a service user’s information. Furthermore, to disclose this information the physiotherapist must have permission from the service user and if the law allows.
The NHS Constitution established the principles and values that are fundamental to service users on how appropriate clinical decisions are made for the delivery of quality care (Department of Health 2010). It provides explicit information for patients to understand their care, what to expect, and feel more empowered involving in their own care (DH 2010). The NHS constitution explains the behaviour expected from stakeholders such as staff, patients and the public (DH 2010). This prevent the government from making alteration and give the NHS complete autonomy and protection against political change without the full involvement of stakeholders to achieve transparency in the delivery of care (DH 2010). Similarly, the NHS values set out the right
Research based on scientific proves are used to form health care policy which can be implemented to improve the health of the community. It also helps in harnessing the knowledge gained in the research into practice of quality care. It helps to practice ethically and professionally ensuring that all actions are supported and can be verified by any healthcare professional. Public health care must ensure that the community needs are well analyzed, by gathering the necessary data, through asking of important questions and searching through literatures to find solutions that are evidence based. Being aware of the evidence in which the public healthcare practice is based is very crucial to the nurse or public healthcare professional, public
In fact, the very first duties of a physician are to take care, protect, take reasonable actions of care, and be more cautious and careful while diagnosing or checking for diseases. Thus, when we talk about medical centres, we mean everything related to health care services like radiology, cardiology, and blood testing for example. These services should be carefully and responsibly provided. For our present instance, we will be more concerned with clinical negligence to the practice of radiology. As it has already been discussed in this paper, physicians are responsible for any clinical negligence that may cause harm or injury to the patient.
Promoting safety requires that all those in the health care environment recognize that the potential for errors exists systemically. Women's health care should be delivered in a learning environment that encourages disclosure and exchange of information in the event of errors, near misses, and adverse
1. National standard of care: What do you think it means, from both a health care quality and legal perspective? "The standard of care is key both to the provision of high-quality health care and to legal claims that a health professional 's, hospital 's, or managed care organizations negligence in rendering medical care resulted in injury or death (Teitelbaum & Wilensky, 2013)." This means that on a national level, patients should feel free from injury by their treating physician through negligence or just not qualified for the position. In this case, laws and policies are in place that help to protect patients and hold hospitals and physicians liable.
The patient must feel secure in what they tell you about themselves and that you will not tell other. Patients like to know they are listened to, cared about and have a opinion in the matter. For example a campaign called #mynameis by Dr Kate Granger, a medical registrar in geriatric medicine and cancer patient demonstrates the importance of small things like introducing yourself and having a name tag. NMBI Code of professional Conduct and Ethics (2014) also has guidelines for nurses for confidentiality and states that 'Honesty, integrity and trustworthiness must underpin your dealings with patients and colleagues ' and 'You should tell patients (unless this could cause them serious harm) if you intend to share confidential information about them with others who are outside the immediate care team
At the start of the encounter with the patient eye contact should be established and maintained regularly to demonstrate interest. The patient should be encouraged to be specific about their concerns in order to allow them to feel understood and deal with their issue. Any indications of problems of concerns should be made clear and explored further ensuring that the patient is allowed to finish their statement first. Reiterate in summary what the patient has stated. This
The nurse’s role is to ensure the patients information is accurate if the patient is conscious and able to provide the nurse with the remaining necessary information. The nurse must keep the information and update throughout the patients stay, as to what medications he may be prescribed and the dosage of that medication. A nurse must also be able to effectively communicate the information that has been obtained to the doctor when required so the doctor can keep overlooking their patient as well as if the patient is required to undergo a surgical procedure. Each role in health professions has an important part in giving patients the best treatment they can receive when effective communication is used. Effective communication is necessary for the patients to receive the best care they can and to ensure all patients receive the same amount of
Anaesthetic Phase According to the HPC Code of Conduct (2015), all registrants and students must respect service user’s right of confidentiality. Therefore, the author will fictionally refer the patient as Sibert. Before Sibert came to theatre for surgery, a pre-assessment is conducted in the pre-assessment clinic. During this assessment, medical history, general health and family history are checked and assessed. Aikenhead et al., (2007) stated that full medical must be compiled before surgery as this will in some way affect the anaesthetic process.
In my facility, the safety of our patients is our top priority. We use a set of interventions using clinical indications to ensure the safety of patients with indwelling catheters. These indications are strict intake and output (I&O), patients monitored for acute renal insufficiency or failure, sedated patients with critical illness, and neurological patients monitored for syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) or diabetes insipidus. Patients suffering from acute urinary retention, or bladder outlet obstruction with the inability to void, as well as select surgical patients, are also indicated. Indwelling catheters are also used in assisting the healing of open sacral or perineal wounds in incontinent patients with a stage III or IV pressure ulcer on the coccyx or sacrum.
