As the Health & Social Care industries become one in Scotland, I believe that now is a very exciting time to get on board. I have spent a considerable amount of time as an NHS Patient, and this is partly why I have chosen this course. I feel this is my
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. Peplau’s theory include three phase: orientation phase, working phase and termination phase.
I think this incident had a positive result because I have stood from patient’s angle. I have concerned the feeling of the patient. If I were a patient, I would expect the medical students provide appropriate suggestions for me instead of sharing uncertain information. The most critical outcome is that developing a trust relationship between us. Trust relationship is a kind of interactive process that requires care and concern (Chin, 2001).
With my recent acceptance of a position in the ICU at my current hospital, I will be learning through practice and exposure as an ICU RN throughout my time in the BSN-DNP program. I believe that this experience and the option of specializing while in the program will enhance my clinical education and make me a stronger provider. After a few years in a Hospitalist role to bolster a broad experience base, I would like to transfer to a high acuity cardiology based unit. Cardiology has intrigued me for sometime, even more so during my time on my tele/med-surg unit, and is a field that I plan to pursue in my career. While researching potential graduate programs, one of many factors that impressed me about UMass Medical School Graduate School of Nursing was the option of specializing in Cardiovascular or Critical care.
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).
The practice of medicine is seen everywhere. The conventional worldview is the pharmaceutical route to the onset of illnesses and conditions. However, there is an opposing worldview, which I see myself as, and that is emphasizing healing through exercise, nutrition, and self-care. Through observing my parents and learning in nursing school how the body works, this had shaped my worldview on the practice of medicine.
I didn’t know how to respond. I wanted to ask what the hell a catheter even was but couldn’t find the courage to do so. I looked towards my mother pleading with eyes for her to explain the situation to me, I didn’t like feeling so lost. My mom must have got the message because she immediately took control and gave the doctor the go-ahead to do the procedure. Dr. Sarah sent in a group of nurses all dressed in the same colored scrubs with a gurney, strange tube like equipment, and they gave me a hospital gown to change into.
By using balanced scorecard in healtcare management,which is the Office of Strategy Management,it can help the healtcare industry such as hospitals,pharmaceutical company and many more in focusing on strategy execution and alignment.From this,it can help against cost overruns and ineffificient implementation,as example the cost or fees at hospitals.Bob M.D,(2012). In hospital’s management,Balanced scorecard will get the focus towards the patient and meet the expectations.The patient(customer) are the perspectives that build the strategy map.This also will meet the patient at the hospital with the satisfaction of measurement of progress towards the target.So,when there are issues and problem happen in management,some approach of balanced scorecard can be used and solved,but balanced scorecard (BSC) is not the solvers that will fix everything.By having the innovative and skilled management teams such as the workers itself at healthcare service such as nurses,pharmacist and also human resource department,it can play the good role in helping healthcare organisation in having success in their mission and perform outstanding healthcare services to their patients which is their customers and also to the communities as
Living after cancer treatment is not free of complications as there are acute and chronic side effects of treatment that requires constant monitoring and attention, and this information spurred me to shift my focus from palliative to survivorship care. The knowledge that I have attained now and my background in patient navigation will help me as a future oncology nurse practitioner, to manage the complex needs of cancer survivorship. I will be able to support my patient’s transition into their new way of life as effective transition management can translate into less hospitalization, lower health care cost and less physical, emotional, spiritual, social and financial stress to patients and their support system. Hope comes in many forms other than with the cure, it comes with control, relief, comfort; to a dying patient, it could mean living another day with their loved ones and
For instance, consumer teleconference services link the vulnerable newborns in the neonatal ICU to their respective families. This technology allows the parents to keep track of the progress of their patients in the ICU. Also, the time-saving sensors in the ICU alert the clinicians as well as the nurses to perform critical tasks to the patients on time. For example, in previous technology, the nurse would be required to monitor the bed angle required for the patient manually. This would require a frequent visit to the patient area to check on the angle of the bed to ensure proper positioning for the patient to promote comfort.
