An organization’s ethical consideration is the ability and a mandate to follow a high standard and integrity of care in mundane processes and activities. In healthcare, trust is fundamental in delivery of care, services, and peace of mind. In patient care, focus on patient as a high priority, telling the truth and elimination of conflict of interest are principles which must reflect in all business facets. Whereas health is a right, moderating the four pillars of health (relieve, cure, prolong and improve) quality of life and provision of cost, efficient, effective care from providers is challenging (Gawande, 2009). Ideally, services, reimbursement and ethics are conjoined.
Continuous relationships with the care team, individualising of care and providing care that anticipates the patient’s needs all achieve best care delivery. (Wagner et al 2001). However the course of any chronic disease is determined by personal attributes, social influences and the professional treatment delivered. Yet, nurses and healthcare professional can try to maintain steady control of any chronic disease by accurate management. The TM model can be used along with other nursing models of care for effective
Applying Standardized Terminologies in Practice Standardized nursing terminologies provide many benefits to patients, facilities and nursing professions. Health Information Technology (HIT) assist facilities and team members to improve the quality of healthcare by communicating and coordinating the efficiency, accuracy, and effectiveness of patient care. Thede and Sewell (2010) stated that three tasks are involved in standardizing nursing terminology so that it can be used in electronic databases: identifying the necessary data elements, developing the terminology, and classifying the terminology and assigning codes. The use of standard terminologies within the Electronic Healthcare Records (EHR) validates nursing care by communicating their
Evidence-based practice which heavily relies on research is wide-spread in modern healthcare. “One of the movement’s major aims is promotion of best practice in healthcare based on the best available evidence” (Daly, Speedy & Jackson, 2010, p.140). As in any research the ethical dilemma is present. So research subjects (patients) have got rights to autonomy, confidentiality and are protected from any harm (Craven & Hirnle, 2009). As Erica calls attention to nursing is a long lasting learning.
For a good collaboration to exist in a healthcare institution, there must be set objectives and people involved must have same interest in meeting the set objectives. There must be a good communication that is clear, honest and purposeful. A collaborative nursing practice involve cooperation with the nursing team, other health professionals and patients as well as their relations. In as much as nurse are always at the forefront of every healthcare, their nursing care for patients is not adequate without the help of other health team members because the health team work as a group using their individual techniques to achieve high standards in patients’ health outcomes. Good collaboration among nurses makes their work easier as it ensures continuity and prevents errors or mismanagement in patients’ health.
Patient satisfaction has been defined as the degree of congruency between a patient expectation of ideal care and her receives. Patient satisfaction represents a key marker for the quality of health care delivery and this internationally accepted factor needs to be studied repeatedly for smooth functioning of the health care systems. A better appreciation of the factor pertaining to client satisfaction would result in implementation of custom made programs according to the requirements of the patient, as perceived by patient and service providers. Patient is the best judge since she accurately assesses and her input help in the overall improvement of quality health care provision through the rectification of the system weaknesses by the concerned authorities. Satisfaction in service provision is increasingly being used as a measure of health system performance.
2.3 Professional Context: It is important for me to do more skillful and be competent in my quality of care rendered to my patient. Professional must ensure that my record is accurate and accessible, reliable since it serves as useful information for quality of care rendered. 2.4 Current Research on Quality control in Nursing Jack Needleman and Susan Hassmilter (2009) stated that, hospital need to integrate their work to improve quality and patient-centeredness and to increase the efficiency of care delivery. Nurses and other front line staff must play key roles. To benefit from the insight and input of these staff members, hospital will need to value their potential contributing shifting their vision of nursing from being a cost center to being critical service line.
All of those aspects are pivotal in order to maintain a healthy, therapeutic relationship with our clients and to provide the greatest, holistic care possible while maintaining a sense of respect. Brennan and Monson (2014), say it best, stating, “professionalism is an indispensable element in the compact between the medical profession and society.” I consider autonomy and accountability a package deal when it comes to the professional nurse. Being able to work autonomously means that you handle certain situations independently while utilizing your knowledge and the evidence presented to you to come to a decision. You also have to remain accountable for the decisions you made while using that knowledge and take responsibility for those choices and any possible mistakes. These qualities are essential when it comes to operating within a healthcare team in order to gain
Nursing, perhaps more than any other health care profession, claims caring as fundamental to its practice. Professional vigilance is the essence of caring in nursing. This article uses historical and theoretical bases to define professional vigilance and discuss its components. Two types of nursing diagnoses, central and surveillance, are proposed. Central diagnoses indicate the need for the nurse to plan and implement interventions for the achievement of outcomes.
Introduction Managers in health care have a legal and moral responsibility to ensure a superior quality of patient care and attention and also to make an effort to improve care. These leaders are in a primary position to mandate plan, systems, techniques and organizational climates. Appropriately|, many have argued that it's obvious that healthcare leaders got an important and clear role in quality of health care and patient safeness and that it's one of the most important priorities of health care managers. Consistent with this, there were demands for Boards in order to take responsibility for quality and safety results Beyond healthcare, you can find clear proof of managerial effect on workplace safety.
