This causes some problems with Lucy’s clients because they will call her supervisor to complain about how they feel that they were left in the dark about her relocating and unimportant. Now after reading Lucy’s story, one can make some critical judgments on what Lucy did wrong in this scenario. The first red flag is when Lucy violated the Code of Ethics Principle I. Principle I rule E states that individuals, “…who hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence may delegate tasks related to the provision of clinical services to aides, assistants, technicians, support personnel, or any other persons only if those persons are adequately prepared and are appropriately supervised. The responsibility for the welfare of those being served remains with the certified individual”.
I have informed my mentor about Mrs. A’s concerns and she was given comprehensive information about the support groups and organisations that are there to help her and her family during her admission (NICE, 2011). Besides, providing therapeutic communication to encourage the patient to give consent to the admission is an act of beneficence because it prevents causing harms and improves the patient’s wellbeing (Edwards, 2009). It was a good experience for me since I have learned the importance of communication as one of the fundamental aspects in nursing (Balzer Riley, 2000). I have learned that therapeutic communication works wonders. I was complimented by my mentor who boosted my confidence and encouraged me to continue doing better since provision of reassurance and honest compliment from the preceptor is a foundation for student development and independence (Ingwerson, 2014).
I felt frustrated and confused because the patient kept wanting to go home and also the patient was vomiting all over the place so we could not send her home because she was not well enough or in her right state of mind. I notice that she the patient pulled out her NG tube out and she was had her body half off the bed like she was going to walk out of there. What I thought about the situation is that we should listen to the patient but also make we as the nurse’s help her get better so she can go home. Some other information that we may have needed was if she was even competent to make her own decisions and two to see if she had any kind of advance directives that would tell us or who we need to contact for her. My observations led me to believe that her vomiting and coughing were due to her pulling out her NG tube.
The NHS Community Care Act 1990, this legislation states that any one aged eighteen years or over is entitled to help or require a service from a local authority. Everyone has the right to have their needs assessed and the care that is being provided, should be tailored to meet an individual’s needs to enable them to live in their own homes. We know that Mary is an elderly lady who is very independent, however there has been a change in Mary’s circumstances and under this piece of legislation Mary is entitled to have her needs met whether it be through referral or a change in circumstance. Those involved in this assessment will be social work who will take the lead on the case, Mary and her family, doctors or nurses and carers. Under the Social
The last three clinical weeks at the Long Term Care Facility have provided me with real life situations to enforce the SILC clinical skills and improve my therapeutic communication. This experience has helped shaped me as a professional by allowing me to develop essential skills that contribute to the holistic care of nursing. A significant improvement that I developed following this experience included my assessment skills during every resident interaction. During these resident encounters, I began to address the resident’s overall well-being and comfort rather than just the current problem. I started incorporating questions about pain, how the resident slept at night, their current mood, and many other questions addressing the resident’s status as a whole.
I believe everyone on this email thread was aware of my meeting today with Joe Baldwin, Guardian, of Kathy Rennich to discuss her recent return from inpatient rehabilitation at a local nursing facility and her expressed desire to move to the Hensgen Home. Basically, in February 2017, Kathy fell resulting in a fractured tail bone. She received inpatient rehabilitation at Care Springs for fourteen days and has returned home with PT services. Since her return home, Kathy has refused to participate in ADL’s (which isn’t a change in pattern as she refused prior to the nf stay) and is demanding that she have the opportunity to live at the Hensgen Home. Kathy’s reasoning behind wanting to move the Hengsen Home isn’t exactly clear to the team.
Consequently, the discussion about nursing home abuse and neglect should never be a topic of discussion to discuss. Mainly, because unfortunate occurrences of neglect and abuse in nursing homes across America should have never happened and/or occurred in the first place. Unfortunately, it does happen.
The aide did her job, addressed a possible issue to her administrator, and followed rules set by that administrator. Herman suffered the most. He was lonely, sad, and felt unsafe. He was a war veteran and an elderly man. Although not positive, he could have had PTSD and depression, which could have been evaluated and assessed if it had been acted upon.
"You know, I don 't believe you 're helping at all. In fact, it 's beginning to strike me, that I may depart this office worse off than when I entered. Are you certain you 're qualified, Heather, and your Therapeutic practices as you were taught in College? Or was your Degree purchased, and you 're simply
After reading the case study scenario I was appalled by the conditions in which the residence of mentioned facility had to live in; it was a matter of time before authorities made things right for the residents of said residence. Couple of questions popped in my head before I said to myself “this guy got what he deserves”, which is a right thing to do – to look at both sides of the story. My first question was about adequate and appropriate staffing at this facility: did they have enough staff and were they qualified for this type of work? Understaffing would not justify the situation but would rather bring on another question of why not cut back on patients if staffing is inadequate? Another question that arises is that of the authority
If the medical Professionals would have sat down to explain her severe symptoms & what it could be and how important it was to follow up. I read an interesting article about how to deal with a Non-English patient. It gave step by step instructions on how to communicate with a NES patient. The thing that stood out most was, “If you think You’re frustrated trying to communicate with a non-English-speaking patient, just imagine how scared And overwhelmed he must feel. He’s sick, vulnerable—and surrounded by people jabbering in
After hearing about that, I always thought that elder speak should not be used as it could negatively affect the client, which we do not want at all. This is why I thought I would reflect upon this incident because many nurses do not think that it is a big issue when the client thinks otherwise. I want to further learn
It’s 8 a.m. on a chilly day in January and I’ve already showered and gotten ready. All my classmates are sleeping in and enjoying their Saturday morning, but I don’t envy them; I’m excited to start my day volunteering at the local Equine Assisted Therapy center. Although it wasn’t clear to me then, looking back on my experiences working with special needs horses, people and children, I’ve come to the realization that a major component to the healing of these cases is the overcoming of social and mental barriers rather than just physical obstacles.
