Mary said " the facility also been getting more rehab client inpatient and outpatient." Mary made a comment about the client has become more demanding in the last few years. Mary said " when the client becomes demanding it can cause problems between the nursing department." In the book Introduction to Human Services by Marianne Woodside and Tricia McClam reported " the delivery of human services involves both the client and the helper. The Process of helping is client oriented as the helper focuses on assisting clients to meet their needs."
There is diversity even between families and the reason is because we are all different and unique. Health providers must have this in mind when attending people from different cultures. Avoiding to do so might cause mistakes and unfair treatment. Individuals go to health care providers in order to heal, however over the course of history injustice has happened in the health care system. By doing so it affected her personal belief she could have been cared for better, and also they failed to communicate and inform the family thus inflicting pain in them for years.
It is of utmost importance to the care of, patient to be prioritized, but nurses have been taking too many hits from many different varying views. And these have deterred with the patient 's overall care. The care of the patient has been decreasing over the years due to aspects. These aspects are caused by hospitals themselves, which are not taking care of their nurses. These nurses experience illnesses themselves and guidelines and precautions are not taken.
For Ms. Sallie Thomas, a phlebotomist manager at Upper Valley Medical Center, she never knows exactly what each day will bring. Working in a hospital, especially the emergency room, there are wide ranges of people she will interact with and potentially collect blood from. Most of all, she believes that the patients come first. She has always held herself and her employees to the ethical codes of beneficence, nonmaleficence, and fidelity. However, like in all health care practice, there are challenges she faces.
Trust is essential element in nurse-patient relationship and it has direct relationship to improve patient wellness. Nurse-patient trust relationship it can be established in long time or in short time it depend on meet the needs of the client, not the needs of the nurse and how the nurse responsible for establishing and maintaining boundaries with pateint. Elaborate During orientation to the Rashid Center for Diabetes and Research (Ajman) I note that the client is entering the room of doctor, educator with happy face and no singe of stress. Also I notes that all the staff nurse in the center they know everything about the patient for example, their background , disease process, even if the patient miss or did not came to his appointment they know which mean nurse they follow up their patient. I think the most important in this relation is trust, which is essential to nursing practice.
Nurse assistants are essential to the care of patients as they do so much of the work that the nurse either doesn’t want to do or does not have time for. They have the most contact with patients and are a vital information gathering source due to that. If compassion wasn’t a part of their makeup they’d be in the wrong line of work as they are constantly having to clean messes, feed people, and so much more. At the facility, there are at least two CNAs on each unit though I know that there are more. I wasn’t counting them because honestly, I didn’t know I was supposed to keep track.
I didn’t understand how she could refuse if it was going to improve her safety and she was going be taken care of with no cost. Even when I tried explaining all the benefits that an assisted living facility has to offer, she continued to refuse. I tried to picture myself in my patient’s place and didn’t understand why she refused. It was her life we were talking about, we are trying to keep her safe so she can live longer. I continued to care for my patient by changing her linen and helping her bathe.
Nursing is a profession that is physically, mentally, and emotionally challenging. In order to effectively manage these hardships, nurses need to be aware of their shortcomings and seek support from others. Unfortunately, the problem lies in nurses not addressing their sufferings. According to Kelly (1996), “to know something is wrong and say nothing, we indirectly consent to what has occurred and we become a part of the problem” (p. 32). At the beginning of her nursing career, Shalof (2005) expressed her feelings of inadequacy in critical thinking, intuition, and courage (p. 72) but did not open up to others.
The nurses reported it to the charge nurse, the patient, the physician and initiated an incident report for a medication error and the nurse who gave the second dose was very concerned and upset. Honesty and accountability cross closely together in this situation but both nurses were honest and upfront about their mistake, learnt from it and monitored the patient closely for bleeding for the next twenty-four hours. Being honest and accountable makes for the best working situations, maintains trust with everyone involved and makes nurses great leaders. Communication is one of the biggest components in nursing. I do not know if there is one specific example for communication I can come up with, almost every area I have ever been too there is a positive example of communication being used.
Certain staff are admiring me for my capability and knowledge but most of the junior scared to work with me as I am very strict in checking their competency. I have maintained good relationship between the disciplines example doctors and physiotherapist. In order to achieve my aim becoming a leader with charisma, I always discuss with my nurse manager on my communication skills and mentoring skills. I shared the same vision with my nurse manager that to develop a competent nursing team in our hospital to provide excellent nursing care for patients. We promote learning culture in our units, encourage continuous education by organizing group study, unit talk, and conducting intensive program for nurses.
As I walked in thru those doors, into a wonderful and well-kept Nursing Home also know as the Canyon Hills Manor, I was greeted with smiling faces and not just from the nurses. But behind that smile is a very tired and worn out nurse who works really hard. They work day in and day out to keep the patients happy and clean. Nursing at the Canyon Hills Manor is very different from the hospital also know as the Hot Springs County Memorial Hospital. I never expected how much of a difference it is until I sat and talked with each nurse.
Given that her mentality was not severely impaired and she expressed refusal, I ended up letting her wander in a limited area while observing her behavior, and then she went to sleep after an hour or so. Working in a long-term facility requires a lot of clinical judgment and high morale from healthcare professionals because there are many patients with cognitive problems who are not aware of how they are treated. Therefore, healthcare professionals should be an advocate for older patients and respect their rights based on ethical principles. To do that, healthcare professionals should reflect their behaviors frequently to see if they respect patients’ rights, and it is also important for healthcare professionals to get proper education on ethical principles. In addition, it is essential to develop a trusting relationship between a nurse and a patient because in the relationship, healthcare professionals can communicate with older patients about their wishes and care preferences more truthfully and honestly, which in turn helps patients to make decisions about their own treatment and healthcare professionals to feel less moral
