For the days I was not at placement, I made posters which provided parents with information about the flu shot, its importance, and locations to receive the vaccine. Additionally, when I was at my clinical placement, I spent time creating posters about when to not bring your child into the Early Years Centre. For instance, if one’s child has a runny nose with green mucus, diarrhea, or red spots on their skin, it is important for parents to keep their children at home. This acts as a form of health prevention for other children, parents, and staff at the Centre from getting
Current nursing setting and how the theory can guide I am working in oncology ward and often meet the patients with nasopharyngeal cancer and admit for Ryles tube insertion because they were difficult to swallow food. I need to give support and educate the patient about the technical of Ryles tube feeding. I find out each stage of the nursing care needs strong and adequate communication in order to make thing go on. Using Peplau’s theory can help these patients achieve a better outcome during hospitalization.
Kelly, I agree with you. Mr. Henry needs to act now and complete an advanced medical directive (AMD) for when he is no longer able to make his own decisions for his medical treatments. Doctors needs to encourage their patients about completing an AMD as soon as when they give diagnosis of a chronic illness to their patients; and nurses have to provide education about AMD as soon as during their patient’s admission. It is the nurse responsibility to assess and educate their patients about AMD. “The trusting relationship between the medical-surgical nurse and the patient lends itself to an opportunity to provide supporting education needed for completion of this document” (Rigan, 2016, p. 2).
This protocol recommends a fall-risk assessment and implementation of a fall prevention plan for every resident, as well as an incident report for every fall. The assessment includes checking for problems that increase the likelihood of falling. Here are some additional steps nursing homes can take to maintain a safer environment and prevent unnecessary falls: - Assessing patients after a fall to identify and address risk factors and treat any underlying medical conditions - Educating staff about fall risk factors and prevention strategies - Reviewing prescribed medicines to assess potential risks and benefits - Adapting the nursing home environment to make it easier for
Ethnography We all think of medical physicians and nurses whenever we feel the onset of the slightest cold, but there is another group of professionals that provide us with the medication we need: pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. The main role of a pharmacist is to dispense medication to their patients according to the prescription given. Before this, they must ensure that they dispense the right drugs and make sure the strength and dosage of the medicine are appropriate, as well as ensuring the medication is safe. Pharmacists give advice to their patients in assuring the appropriate use of medications.

I was able to educate a family member who was not wearing protective equipment inside an isolation room the importance of wearing one to prevent the spread of infections and promote wellness.
Hydration levels can be monitored closely to reduce their vulnerability of becoming dehydrated (Shepherd, 2011). Water, cow’s milk, infant formula and juice is readily available for children and infants on the ward to maintain hydration levels and encourage drinking and parents are advised of this as per the guidelines of The Hospital Food Standards (Jeffrey, 2015) in order to reduce patient vulnerability. Healthcare professionals closely monitor fluid balance and look out for dehydration signs in the child, it sometimes becomes necessary to prevent dehydration from escalating and to intervene by placing some young children and infants on intravenous rehydration, this is a quick way of rehydrating a child who is moderately to severely dehydrated in order to prevent their condition from deteriorating further leaving young children and infants vulnerable to health complications such as organ failure (Ellis, 2016). An important part of reducing the child’s vulnerability is the education offered to parents and care givers since they are highly dependent on them for all aspects of care, health and wellbeing. There are many public information campaigns which parents are informed about regarding
Northwell Health created a special Task Force focused on reduction of sepsis related deaths in the Emergency Department, as stated in the article “Reducing Sepsis Mortality.” The goal is to teach medical staff to recognize the signs and symptoms within an hour of patients arriving to the Emergency Department. This recognition then leads to a course of specific actions, such as, “ Early administration of antibiotics to septic patients, returning serum lactate test results to physicians, who could identify severe sepsis, starting empiric fluids quickly and appropriately,” as explained by Friedman, Gallo, Riebling and Doerfler. Northwell Health’s dedication and desire to improve the outcome of these patients lead to an understanding of the need
“Systematic prevention programs have been shown to decrease hospital-acquired pressure ulcers by 34% to 50%” (ICSI, 2003). It is critical to identify all the risk factoEarly detection of risk status is critical because timely interventions can be designed to address specific risk factors. When the patients first get admitted to the hospital, an admission risk assessment is usually performed. In the assessment, nurses consider patient’s age, medical history, medications and prior history of pressure ulcers. These factors play an important part in providing the nurses with initial information about the patient.
Both a medical assistant and nurse have similar duties in providing great health care. Medical assistants and nurses get the patients ready for future procedures; for example, the patient may have a CT scan coming up so the nurse or medical assistant will provide medicine if any should be taken or they will help get all the paperwork prepared. Also both medical assistants and nurses help patients with eating, and provide wound care if needed. Medical assistants and nurses provide a clean and safe environment to prevent sicknesses from spreading. To prevent sickness from spreading they change the sheets from the patient’s bed and clean equipment after every time it is
