Unfortunately, that baby passed away. Everyone was supportive in ensuring, that everyone was okay after the baby had passed away. In addition to this experience, my preceptor, Jennifer, assisted and allowed me to do many things on my first day. Tasks that I completed included, neonatal assessments and IV medication administrations. On the second day, Jennifer, allowed me to do more, such as paternal nutrition and lipid administration, and I got to remove my patient’s replogle.
During my rotation in the emergency room, I experienced some things I already did plus few things that I did in skills lab but waited until clinicals. First, I did vital signs on several patients who came in and then every two hours. I was also able to put several patients on the cardiac monitor and be able to know which cable goes with which. I saw nurses put IVs on mostly all patients including teenagers and older adults. Last, I was able to insert an indwell catheter on patient who had a distended bladder.
This case report shares nursing experience of caring a patient whose leukemia relapsed early after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The patient later received chemotherapy and peripheral blood stem cell reinfusion for graft-versus-host disease induction. Facing long-term, repeated chemotherapy related side effects and poor treatment response, the patient developed desperation. Such hopelessness patients eagerly need nursing intervention to care for their physical, psychological and spiritual health to help them to adjust these. The patient received nursing care from June 23, 2015 to November 5, 2015.
What Built Me The sound of monitors beeping throughout the night or the desire to just have one night in your own bed doesn’t sound very appealing to most people. In fact, it isn 't my ideal situation either. Still, the Hermann Children 's hospital forever holds a special place in my heart. I am able to live a normal life thanks to the Hermann Children 's hospital staff. Being diagnosed with Hydrocephalus at ten days old, being sick was all I knew.
With that principle in mind, I practiced my skill as a nursing student on every unit that I was assigned to. I started to feel hopeless day after day of doing the same task continuously without seeing a spark, or “the light at the end of the tunnel.” Until I met a specific patient. For the sake of privacy, the patient will be named
During my senior year of high school I got an opportunity to shadow an intensive care unit (ICU) nurse at Adena hospital in Chillicothe, Ohio. Darcee Pierce is the name of the nurse I shadowed. At that point in time I didn’t know which career I wished to pursue. However, within minutes of shadowing Darcee, I knew this was the profession meant for me. I saw patients in critical condition, which was sad, but the care and compassion
Patient was given perineal care prior to the straight catheterization, which is performed every four hours. Beforehand, the cna had a bladder scan on the patient and there was 321 milliliters of urine left in the bladder. During the process of inserting the straight catheter, the patient was asked to take a deep breath while they inserted the catheter through the urethra. At the same time, the nursing students had to teach the patient about bladder management and possible the high risk for urinary tract infections due to multiple insertions of the straight catheter.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, decided to help spread knowledge about family planning after nursing a woman back to health from a botched abortion. Sanger would open her first birth control clinic on October 16th, 1916 in Brownsville, Brooklyn. She wouldn’t stop there. One hundred years later, 1 in 5 women visit Planned Parenthood in the United States to take advantage of their several services that they provide which include knowledge about contraceptives, STD tests and treatments, pregnancy tests, screenings for breast and cervical cancer, and more. About half of Planned Parenthood centers also provide abortions.
They asked was I 40 and had a mammogram screening, did I see blood from my chest, and any history. The nurse decided without those important key facts that an appointment wasn’t necessary. I didn’t feel comfortable with the decision they made, so I begin to monitor my chest daily. I did a little research of my own to convince the
On November 8, 2016, I was in the ENT clinic and Henedia, the nurse’s coordinator, advised me to give out certificates of gratitude to the patients in the waiting room. As I was giving them out a patient stopped me mid sentence, she told me how she was dissatisfied with the level of care she was being provided in this clinic. She was telling me about the situation she was in and how the hospital did not help her in anyway and that they were rude to her when she had called the ENT clinic to make an appointment. As she was telling me all of this I was prevented to give out the rest of the certificates of gratitude to the other patients. I wondered how her telling me this can change the patient quality of care given to her and I was thinking of
I taught the patient that the first three days, she will see rubra that is red drainage and from day three to the eleventh day, she would see light pink to brown tinged blood and from day eleven, she would see white or cream like discharge and I also informed her to notify the healthcare provider immediately if the color changes from white to red. The use of warm water and squirt bottle was also stressed to the patient and I also advised her to wipe from front to back to prevent herself from getting infections. During the postpartum period 50% to 70% of women experience postpartum blues which are normal and
For the first time in more than 30 years, the American Cancer Society is changing its guidelines about when women should start getting regular mammograms, and how often. The new rules, published in today’s JAMA (formerly known as the Journal of the American Medical Association), say women at average risk should wait until they’re 45 to start getting mammograms. Women should get one every year until they’re 55, then get one every other year. Cancer researchers say breast cancers tend to grow more slowly after menopause, making it safe for women to be checked less often as they age. While mammograms are one of the best known tools for early detection of breast cancer, the new guidelines say doctors no longer need to do breast exams during women 's checkups.

I chose to take part in the gastrointestinal medicine service for our mandatory clinical week since I enjoyed the GI block greatly and heard it was a good mix of ruminating on problems and doing procedures. My assigned team was with Dr. Saloojee and his band of residents. On my first day, the first person I met with was Dr. Stephanie Collins, PGY-5, and we began patient rounds. The first patient I met on service was really medically complex: a middle-aged female that presented with chronic diarrhea that severely affected her quality of life, with a long-standing surgical history including small bowel resections, antrectomy due to a perforated ulcer, and a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube. She was in the hospital for five months at this
