Dorothy says she is frequently networking with her peers to learn new strategies and problem solve similar situations. She also attended the ONL Leadership Academy to bolster her leadership skills. How does Dorothy see the current overall effectiveness at South Shore Hospital, and how would she change it if she could? The CNO at South Shore Hospital is very visible and involved in all areas. Dorothy would like to see more general leadership meetings that include directors and managers across the organization.
The Amedisys Hospice service that I work for is special, loving, kind and caring; which we provide comfort and support for our patients, which are facing life- limiting illnesses for each family member and loved ones. The reason I chose the topic to write and tell about my story to tell; is because I am a Hospice aide that I experience each week days. I travel from home, to home, work at facilities, and work in the office some. There are lots of our patients choose to be home for their comfort of their illnesses; and some that aren’t able, or do not have the time for their loved ones; they chooses the facility’s such as the nursing homes, not stating that they do not want to care for them in their home, because they have busy schedules or what
Outcome 5: Use Basic Communication and Collaborative Skills to Optimize Patient Outcomes Brenen Dapkiewicz NU 311 Fundamentals of Nursing Practicum Washburn University School of Nursing Knowledge Q1: Describe how you utilized several communication skills you were introduced to in class. During my long-term care experience last Friday, I was exposed to many forms of communication. There was non-verbal communication, where you could just see that a patient was maybe anxious or content.
Not to my surprise, my first attempt to theorize what I felt being a social studies teacher was has changed quite significantly in just about a year 's time. There 's no doubt that my experiences in both my fall placement and spring placements have altered my theory a great deal. When I wrote my creed I noticed that I tended to focus a great deal on how the teacher would be the central figure in my pedagogy. By all means the teacher in the classroom a
I started my career with the intent to be at the bedside caring for patients. In the past 4 years I have been learning but not a majority from books or in a laboratory but from human to human contact. I work for a safety net hospital; truly no one is turned away. I’ve helped collaborate care in a time of crisis for people that bring with them cultures, beliefs and values from half way around the world.
Reflecting back on my experience at the NEOBIF conference this past Friday I was able to gain many different educational opportunities and to interact with different traumatic brain injured (TBI) patients. The conference was beneficial to me as a graduate student because I was able to observe and interact with multiple TBI patients. Prior to the conference I had some concerns regarding the event, but after the event I was able to reflect on my concerns and I realized that I was never put into any of those situations I was concerned about. After attending the NEOBIF conference on Friday, I had many different learning opportunities and experiences.
I work closely with Medical nurse and doctors, as well as psychiatric nurses and doctors. This experience has given me the ability to learn what mindfulness practices works for me, in order for me to be able to continue to service my clients, without become too overwhelmed. There is still much for me to learn before I can actually obtain my MSW, but with my coursework and current experience, I feel that I will successfully complete my goals. I plan to obtain my MSW within 6 months, however study and take my licensing exam in about 3 months. Being as though I will need about one hundred hours to qualify for my knowledge test to become a translator I will give myself about 2 years to complete, however I would like to be certified within a year of receiving my LSW.
My nursing experience began in July of 2005, when I began working at Kaiser Permanente as a certified medical assistant. As a medical assistant (MA), the MA can do something as minor as checking someone’s weight, to administering immunizations under the supervision of the LVN or the physician. The things I did over the seven years as a MA, was limited and I began feeling complacent and wanted to do more with my career. I continued my education with the assistance of the company I worked for, and received my LVN in 2012. There, I transitioned to a department that is considered a high-risk perinatal unit.
Thank you for being willing to share your experiences with past trauma and how they are impacting your perspectives on the material we are reviewing. When I first watched the video earlier in the week, I thought “oh yes, I remember the attending skills” from my undergraduate education in social work. Then I was reminded in a very concrete way that there is more to attending behaviors than just eye contact, attentive posturing, and reflection skills.
I took a nursing assistant class through a dual enrollment program. I performed clinical hours at Golden Living Center in Rome, Georgia for CNA training. I took this class not because I wanted to become a nurse but because this was the only healthcare class left that I had not taken. I did not want to go senior year without taking a class in healthcare because I did not want to forget important skills that I had learned in prior classes. This class taught me a lot about the medical field.
Last week I found the information that I gathered from the assignment on conducting a visit to a local healthcare facility to hold the most interesting concepts from me. Having worked for different healthcare facilities, I have had my share of Joint Commission visits. It is not at all a visit that hospital employees look forward to. Learning about the details behind what the surveyors intend to achieve by examining hospital practices, questioning employees and asking patients about their stay makes more sense now.
but I suffered four major injuries last year at different times. Prior to attending CPOA I was medically cleared to work out again and the academy was a perfect platform to start fresh. While I am not a fan of group physical training (PT), it did expose me to programs I have never tried and might continue when I arrive back at home station. The first fitness class was great in helping understand all the different numbers in your blood results. The second wellness class discussing eating and the use of the “My fitness pal application” was interesting.
I was at home with my mother who is an extraordinary nurse and she gave me the care I needed she stayed with me everyday and every night from four A.M. throw ups to me crying out in pain she was my rock and I can honestly say that if it wasn 't for her I wouldn 't have made it. Aside from the at home support even though last year was the big senior year coming back to school was easy I wasn’t paying tuition or dorm rooms I came back and made up the necessary work to graduate without it being stressful, I believe if it was now or in a year or two it would have been really hard to come back from a month and a half hospital stay. It was a tough event but the time of it all really was
I was eager and enthusiastic when I first walked In into Schervier Nursing Center, the place where I would be doing volunteer work for the summer. Before that, I had never been In a care center for elderly residents, so I didn't really know what to expect. “You will be assigned to the fourth flour on the north side.” Every volunteer was assigned to a different area. As I arrived to my floor I examined the white halls that would lead me to my destination.
1.Describe, in your own words, how occupational therapy helps people. Occupational therapy allows a patient to work towards the goal of being able to perform basic everyday functional tasks. Therapy will differ for each patient, providing purposeful tasks that will allow the most growth for the specific individual needs. Being able to be an independent individual that can perform functional tasks is something that most people strive for, and if something happened that altered this way of life, it can be very stressful and even feel dehumanizing to the patient. Striving for independence and working with the therapists is something that will positively affect the patient's quality of life.
