Thus, what specific information is required to know about the symptoms or patient? (Rissmann et al., 2012). Hence, considering the aspect of patient, NMC has picked up a cue as it is used by pharmacists while helping them in advising people in order to buy medications. Thus, this aspect is not strong enough to go into isolation as if it is combined with the charge, which ensures that medication history is taken along with OTC, herbal, POMs, allergies since patients need to explain that these aspects need to explain that which aspect is essential. Hence, assessment of holistic needs of patient looks for the determinants of health.

In this paper, I will talk about the numerous ways medication errors can occur and how nurses have a great role preventing them, in order to keep all clients in the healthcare system safe. Reducing Medication Errors in Nursing Practice This article touched on the countless ways that medication errors can occur. Medication errors are one of the most common sources of accidental harm to clients (Cloete,
(Claffey, 2018) The best way to reduce the risk of medication errors is to enquire about which orders wouldn't be appropriate to give to the patient based on their condition. (Claffey, 2018) In addition to successfully completing a physical assessment on the patient, the practitioner must also view the patient holistically, and always report near-miss medication errors. (Claffey, 2018) Given that nurses are the ones administering the medication, they should be able to justify as to why the patient is receiving the drug and if it is safe for the patient to be given that specific dosage. (Claffey, 2018) As technology evolves, having an electronic entry for medication may perhaps help reduce the risk of many errors in a busy environment. (Claffey,

The imaging diagnosis of slow flow venous malformation was considered. Due to morbid nature of surgery, patient was referred to Intervention Radiology department for management by serial sessions of sclerotherapy. Patient was taken up for sclerotherapy after upfront tracheostomy and Ryle’s tube insertion done as a precautionary measure to overcome anticipated post procedure airway and pharyngeal compromise. Under Ultrasound guidance using 22G scalp vein needle set, direct puncture of vascular spaces was done. After confirmation of free back flow of blood, Sodium tetradecyl sulphate mixed with low osmolar non ionic iodinated contrast
Meta-analysis is a systematic means to synthesize results from multiple studies, test hypotheses, and quantitatively estimate the size of effects. How to practice evidence –based psychiatry There is 5 step in applying evidence base practice (medicine process) Step 1 Formulate the question It is begins with a clinical question, which involve issues related
How do clinical pharmacists care for patients? Clinical pharmacists: • Provide a consistent process of patient care that ensures the appropriateness, effectiveness, and safety of the patient’s medication use. • Consult with the patient’s physician(s) and other health care provider(s) to develop and implement a medication plan that can meet the overall goals of patient care established by the health care team. • Apply specialized knowledge of the scientific and clinical use of medications, including medication action, dosing, adverse effects, and drug interactions, in performing their patient care activities in collaboration with other members of the health care team. • Call on their clinical experience to solve health problems through the rational use of medications.
This essay will look in detail into a holistic assessment of a young, female child, aged four, admitted to hospital suffering from gastroenteritis. Firstly, the author will outline what gastroenteritis is including its symptoms, frequency, treatment and impact, relating to both the clinical and personal aspects of care. Furthermore, the author will explore the links between practice and theory, observing different methods used in pain management, distraction, clinical observation and communication. According to The National Institute for Health Care and Excellence (NICE, 2009) infective gastroenteritis is very common, can vary in severity and is “characterised by the sudden onset of diarrhoea, with or without vomiting.” Gastroenteritis is a
Third step considers the planning of care in the collaboration of clinical treatment team. The fourth step includes an implementing of care plan of treatment. The fifth step is an evaluation of care plan, including: effectiveness of a care plan; a care plan that is culturally congruent towards the patient; a plan that is culturally competent; a plan that is safe and affordable; plan that combine care with evidence based practice
The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) deﬁnes medication reconciliation as a formal process to compile a list of all the medications a patient is taking before admission, and comparing it with the doctor’s admission, transfer and discharge orders. In 2007, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) acknowledged that reconciliation errors compromise the safety of drug use and recommended hospitals to develop a system for obtaining patients’ complete pharmacotherapeutic records, to ensure they receive the necessary drugs for the new
These questions on the topic of how often Lovenox injections are required to be therapeutic versus how often heparin needs to be injected and the resulting patient satisfaction during the hospital stay. With the emphasis on patient satisfaction and the government guidelines for preventable hospital acquired problems, finding a solution to DVT prevention is important for nursing. One study by Arnold et al. (2010) directly compared the two drugs in question for this project and provided credible information to the development of an evidenced-based answer to the problem (Arnold et al., 2010). A second systematic review by Akl et al.
Staples & Earle (2008) used a phenomenology research design, where they used a convenience sample of CHF patients to determine effective technologies for monitoring patients with heart failure admissions and mortality. The effectiveness of CHF patients through the use of telephonic assessments and interventions was implemented. Congestive Heart Failure study participants (n=591) were managed by a team of registered nurses and nurse practitioners. Data was collected using a telephone log and appropriate medical protocols were provided. Data was analyzed; determining frequency of calls, level of care required and scope of practice needed to ensure proper care of the patients.
Smith’s second diagnostic code 305.00, which indicates she is diagnosed with Mild Alcohol Use in DSM-5 (American Psychiatric Association, 2013) or Alcohol Abuse in DSM-IV-TR (4th ed., text rev. ; DSM–IV–TR; American Psychiatric Association, 2000). Since the dilemma was not clear on mine and my supervisor’s areas of competence, I would have to look into our competencies before treating clients with clinical addiction and substance abuse disorders. According to the BCACC codes of ethics (2014) the RCC will “limit practice and supervision to areas of competence in which proficiency has been gained through education, training, or experience” (p. 6). Therefore my supervisor and I would have to determine whether we are competent to counsel Ms.
Dr. Song, Clinical Decision Support has been defined as a “process for enhancing health-related decisions and actions with pertinent, organized clinical knowledge and patient information to improve healthcare, as well as, healthcare delivery (Campbell & CPHIMS, 2013). Clinical Decision-supporting tools are utilized to manage and support patient care. Healthcare information systems and information-retrieval systems are tools that manage information. There are various programs that provide custom tailored assessments or advice based on sets of patient specific data (Musen, Middleton, & Greenes, 2014, p. 701). Decision tools may follow simple logics (such as algorithms), may be based on decision theory, cost benefit analysis, or may use numerical approaches only as an adjunct to symbolic problem solving (Musen, Middleton, & Greenes, 2014, p. 701).
