The patient centred approach becomes very important and well understand by all team members to bring about effective care. APPLICATION OF THE CONCEPT TO CURRENT JOB The function of coordination cannot be overemphasized in a hospital setting. For an effective patient’s care the hospital have to be well coordinated and organized to provide the necessary facilities and personnel required.

Frequent visits to the medical care facility account for the majority of the expenses related to health care treatment. (Latessa & Smith, 2011) Therefore, those who are not in need of severe medical treatment or suffering from injuries should be required to make appointments based on the level of severity. The staff will make sure inmates who are not sickly, or suffering from injuries, or have had previous surgeries, or previous diseases, be informed of the level of urgency for those with more serious conditions. Nevertheless, providing more care in-house instead of transferring inmates can reduce the costs. As mentioned before, hiring more permanent and sufficient staff can reduce the need to transport to external clinics and
The healthcare staff can only act as a facilitator in patient 's decision making. With regard to this case study, I felt that all the above points should be addressed in Suzan’s clinical management. Reflective practice is undoubtedly an important concept in nursing to think about to reduce the possibility of errors in the future practice. The day that Ms. Suzan received the double dose of Omniplaque drink, I went back through the chart and realized that this medication could do more harm to her kidney as well as liver. So I contacted the doctor immediately to do the needful at the earliest for Ms. Suzan to avoid further damage.
This could result in malpractice or lack of care standards on the part of the case manager. The case manager needs to talk to the physicians to ensure they are clearly communicating their patients' condition and that they are on board with the plan care all way to the discharge plan. (Hogue & Prudhomme, 2012) Another point is documentation on a patient. There is a saying in the medical field if you didn’t document it didn’t happen, make sure as a case manager, everything you do is fully documented in the patient record. Develop habits that are good, you always want to document on a client when everything is fresh.

Medical errors are not typically caused by a negligent or incompetent healthcare professional; instead, they are often the result of a breakdown in processes that guide the delivery of patient care (Bonney, 2014).
The “No Pass Zone” means that if a nurse, nurse assistant, or health care staff see a call light going off they cannot ignore it and must see what the patient needs. However, if the care staff is unable to fulfill this request on their own they must alert the appropriate staff. The impact this goal had on patient outcomes was that it improved patient satisfaction and was even showing a reduction in patient falls. Often, most patients calls are for beeping IV pumps or needing to use the restroom. In addition, patient satisfaction surveys are another example of quality improvement.
Robinson et al. (2002) mentioned that APN with wide knowledge in disease progress, research, health promotion and prevention of major illness who are keen to share knowledge to patients will help patients to understand more about their conditions. Koh and Ang (2005) states that with comparison to the doctors, the APNs are more likely to spend extra time to educate patients on health promotion and life style changes and are proven with better compliance with treatments. Karnusammy (2006) also mention that in addition to educating the patient and nurse, the APN also actively involve with patients family and initiating discharge. Nurses will also gain more knowledge and build a positive relationship with the APNs.
The role of a rapid response team is to perform a quick, but thorough assessment on a deteriorating patient and provide intervention in a timely manner. The RRT can only do a timely intervention if the afferent team recognizes the need for activation. Therefore, it is important to educate the team with recognizing abnormal vitals or even altered mentation as a reason to activate the team. Many hospitals also have Early Warning Systems that identify any triggers to alert the team, and nurses should periodically review these to optimize patient outcomes. Sometimes, nurses have to overcome any barriers that lead the team from delaying to activate the team.
The shadow health physical assessment and concept lab are very informative and helpful. I would definitely apply my learned knowledge on my daily assessment of my patients. I learned how to assess the heart and peripheral vascular system thoroughly. Lastly, this unit helped me understand the circulatory system better, and will help me improve my assessment skills.

The management issues that should be addressed before we start implementation at Tres Rios Hospital are to build the morale up in our facility. To create a mission statement that will be encouraging to our employees to know, and understand why they are committed to the work they perform each day. As Manager, I must be confident in order to alleviate my staff fears and be clear to each member of what I am expecting of them as an employee. Nevertheless, proving that electronic medical record will be more sufficient than paper process is a key component to implement in planning for the EMR system to be run efficiently. And make any minor tweaks to avoid a system break down.
To step out of my box an advocate for a review of the chart with the IDT prior to the meeting would not only empower me as a nurse but my colleagues, as well. We would be better equipped to anticipate the needs of the participants producing a more reliable and credible relationship; as well as, reducing the need for follow-up
