However, the third stage is the most serious one because it affects the lungs directly. In addition, the patients with active TB have painful symptoms and maybe cannot survive. the main cause of the tuberculosis disease is the transmission of the bacteria. Moreover, the people who have unhealthy immune systems have a big chance to acquire TB. The Effect of the TB on the body of the patient and the patient's life are so strong and harmful.
In the article Invasion of the Superbugs by Alessandra Potenza she warns you of a dangerous new bacterial disease that is resistant to antibiotics and what this could mean for the future. What are these superbugs? They are an antibiotic resistant bacterial disease. This was caused the over and misuse of antibiotics. These superbugs are actually very dangerous, one boy Joseph Paz received this disease and got a sharp pain in his right leg.
A wound is a disorder in the normal anatomical structure and function of living tissue which may be caused by physical, chemical, microbiological or immunological injury. Globally wounds also represent a significant burden on the patients and health care professionals or givers. Wound infection is also significant in that they are the most common nosocomial infection (Orrett, 2002) . Infection of the wound is the successful invasion, and proliferation by one or more organisms anywhere within the body’s sterile tissues and sometimes accompanied with pus formation (Calvin, 1998).Wound infection may result to prolong hospital stay, delay wound healing, increases cost of health care and morbidity in surgical patients (Orrett, 2002).. Wound infection with multiple organisms may even result to multiple organ failure or death of the patient when it becomes chronic.
Arteries may get damaged due to the high intake of homocysteine. High consumption can make the blood to get blocked and it can make high risk to our body. This type of disease is called thrombus. There should not be any clot on your blood vessels otherwise it will block your lungs which is called pulmonary embolism, also the brain which can cause stroke, or into the heart which can even cause to the heart attack. The people who suffer from high levels of homocysteine are at a high risk so they need to consult doctor for the further treatments.
Our textbooks imply that “Creating a distraction-free environment is critical for medications.” Further research led to healthcare providers initiating distraction free areas within each department in order to allow nurses to practice safe medication administration. Nurses are highly recommend to use these sections within the hospital as safety zones to avoid drug errors. Within this safety zone there are elements designed to elevate correct drug administration. Such things like, adequate lighting, access to patients profiles, and a quite area to for nurses to dispense medications using the Pyxis
Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria are easily transmitted from patient to patient on the hands of health care providers and the patients themselves. In addition to the substantial morbidity and mortality associated with Staphylococcus Aureus infection, the economic cost of Staphylococcus Aureus bacteraemia in this population is striking. (Engemann et al., 2005) According to Nissenson (2005) patients with end-stage renal disease and septicaemia caused by Staphylococcus Aureus had costly and lengthy hospitalisations, which frequently were associated with clinically and economically important complications, including hospital
In today’s society we evolve in a highly scientific and technical world, while the importance of proper health care and the ability to cure has become remarkable. Within practices today, the perspective of the patient on his or her treatment should be of utter importance. Hereby stressing the need for patient compliance, compliance being adherence to a treatment regimen or any recommendation from a physician or health care provider. Noncompliance is associated with an increase of medical risk and possibly mortality depending on how serious the illness is. Without patient compliance therapeutic goals are not met and the benefits are not obtained, certain factors have been addressed to why compliance differs in patients, however not enough research
Hospitalizations refers to a goal of reducing the amount of patient’s being sent out of the facility to a hospital. Many changes in condition can be managed by staff in order to avoid trauma associated with hospitalization. Resident centered care promotes autonomy, purpose and meaning in the daily life of the resident. Lastly, consistent staffing allows the residents to benefit from safe nurse to patient ratios. In addition, the residents benefit from experience and staff knowledge, this increases competence and confidence of staff while building a therapeutic relationship between staff and
Providers are being held more accountable for the care they provide and expect to receive payments for. The ambulatory care model is expected to help in decreasing the number of impatient stays, hospital acquired illnesses and injuries, and increase provider and patient awareness and focus on lifestyles that promote long term healthy living and habits. According to the American Institute of Architects who helps build ambulatory centers, “Advances in technology have enabled more care to be delivered through noninvasive procedures and administering drugs, and have also allowed the management of care to be more seamless and portable. Flexibility in the delivery of care allows for more treatment to take place away from the hospital, in ambulatory settings, in the doctor’s exam room, or even in the comfort of the patient’s home. This separation of ambulatory from inpatient care creates complexities as providers try to support patient comfort and recognize the need for some similar support structures that are costly to duplicate in multiple locations.
Antibiotics are medicines that have been the front-runners in combatting bacterial diseases for more than 70 years and have contributed to an increase in life expectancy of world populations (CDC, 2012). Antibiotic resistance is the phenomenon caused by the misuse and overuse of antibiotics that leads to bacterial strains eventually becoming irresponsive as a result of modification of pre-existing genes of the persisting resistant bacteria. Infectious bacterial diseases caused by MDR (Multi-drug resistant) pathogens have severe implications for patients: prolonged hospitalization, increased cost and greater mortality rate (Dahiya, P.& Purkayastha, S.2012). WHO has even recognized antibiotic resistance as “one of the biggest threats to global
