The dilemma lies in how the social work practitioner would respect the patient’s autonomy and determining whether the patient is competent. Furthermore, the social work practitioner is responsible for assessing whether the patient understands the consequences of his or her behaviours. Because, often than not, there are different risks associated with the patient’s refusal to medical treatment and services. Thus, in such cases, social workers would face the ethical dilemma of deciding whether to protect or limit the right of how the patient should live his or her life.
However, the U.S. is not intentionally belligerent to other states, this only occurs when a difference in ideals is presented and poses as a threat. Though U.S. foreign policy mainly accommodates other states, as long as both share liberal ideals. Essentially, Owen’s liberal peace theory does capture the objectives of the Truman Doctrine. Ultimately, The argument Owen makes throughout his liberal peace theory is based on the ideals of liberalism
The simulation exercise demonstrates the consequences on patients and staff as Jenny, the charge nurse chooses the wrong path on her decisions. Janice acts with less respect towards her patients’ well-being as she refers them as procedures not as their names. As a charge nurse of the department, her behavior exemplifies unprofessionalism to her co-staff and new employee Elise. Patients deserve respect regardless what the circumstance is. If leaders exhibit know how to respect, the followers tend to imitate them.
The initiation of change in clinical practice is a common process and can be emotionally demanding to adapt. One support strategy that can be implemented to assist staff in managing and sustaining purposeful rounding is coaching and mentoring. It is evident that there is a lack of understanding in the purpose of nurse rounding and integrating it into the staff’s routine (Fabry, 2014). Hence, the lack of awareness in the rationale behind rounding can affect the engagement of the change. Coaching staff may include providing in-service two-way learning program before implementation of rounding.
What was once thought of as a profession driven by compassion and the desire to help those in need has now become filled with weary burnt out nurses who have lost sight of their purpose. Stress has caused them to distance themselves from the principles nursing is built upon. Our health care system needs to be revamped to improve the quality of care being administered. Nurses can be proactive and take steps to avoid burning out but, our health care administrators have to take matters into their hands because they have the capacity to initiate change. They must realize the gravity of the situation and take an offensive position to make a stand against the crisis of nursing
When not using restraints properly or not having the right education on how to use physical restraints it leads to abuse. Studies show that health professionals are largely unaware of the various forms of elder mistreatment that take place, and of the proper course of action to pursue when mistreatment is suspected (Baigas, J., Falk, N. L., Kopac, C., 2012). Whether abuse is caused for misuse of physical restraints, or whether a caregiver is overwhelmed with their combative patient, abuse happens for unethical reasons. Federal law prohibits unnecessary use of restraints and specifies that some reasons for using restraints are unacceptable. Nursing facility staff may not use restraints to: punish or discipline a patient, make patient care easier or more convenient, substitute for other activities or treatment, permanently control the patient.
I will explore the ways in which the Nursing and Midwifery Council have begun implementing changes to its processes in order to better consider human factors during investigations and distance itself from the punitive perception the NMC has with its nursing and midwifery registrants. I have chosen to explore this topic as human factors are challenging for healthcare regulators, particularly regulators like the NMC whom are focussed on the practise of an individual rather than the concerns within the wider systems. I believe as professional regulators, human factors need to be taken into consideration when investigating allegations in order to achieve more reliable and robust investigations, and with hope to achieve fairer outcomes for nurses and
The author was trying to show how the difference between two cultures can influence in health care. The author showed how the difference between illness and disease also affects the forms of treatment. It is important to recognize the patient’s cultural beliefs because this may help us to recognize how effective the given treatment can be and in what ways we can enhance the treatment without sacrificing the patient’s cultural beliefs. The author also showed how both the parents and the doctors care about Lia but what they thought was best for Lia varied. The doctors thought that the parents were harming the treatment by not being compliant and the parents thought that the doctors were hurting Lia by giving her so much medicine.
The clinician will assess that the data identifying themes, searching for meaningful chunks of information and coding the data. The therapist analysis will be used to identify triggers associated with Sharon’s lengthy history of depression, social isolation and self-neglect. Design Limitations There are several potential limitations when utilizing ethnographic interviewing. Time and expense are a limitation, a clinician must take the time to gain the trust and respect of the client.
The bias associated with all three-assessment tools are; level of competency of the therapists assessing the test, the therapist selection of tools based on ease of administration and interpretation, and the patient’s response not answering the questions truthfully. Considerations for using these assessment tools with individuals from special/diverse populations, such as the client, must also be examined. Religious beliefs, and values, may be accustomed to the client’s lifestyle and habitation so it is vital that therapist’s prepare and learn about client’s cultural differences beforehand and provide the appropriate adaptations to intervention. Vi and the OT collaborated together and identified problems to set goals in self-care, productivity
In the article of “The American Blindspot”, the main point is to show the differing interpretations of the Reconstruction era that arose between Foner and Du Bois. Du Bois poses the idea that the slaves are to be seen as humans and argues the side of the slaves whereas Foner argues from the side in which views the capitalistic side of Reconstruction. In Du Bois’s argument, he makes sure to clarify that he sees the slaveholders as owners of capital rather than just the wealthy elite. In turn, Foner describes the slaveholders as the ruling class and stays away from calling slaves the working class or proletarians. Foner places Reconstruction as a bourgeois revolution whereas Du Bois views the era as having two Reconstructions.
Author, Thomas Paine, in his book, Rights of Man, sheds a light on the diverse makeup of America. He argues that teaching the government on the “principles of society and rights of man,” will bring America into unity. However, the time period in Paine’s book does not remain true today. It is present in our current entertainment and culture that America cannot overcome their differences. One difference that America can not overcome, is the distinction between rich and poor.
