I will summarize each outcome for the Nursing Informatics specialty. For the intent of this paper I will use outcome and competency interchangeably. The first outcome means the ability to gather healthcare information across the continuum of care; combine and utilize the information gathered to develop a process. Finally execution of that process to evaluate its ability to improve the quality of the healthcare environment. Healthcare managers are constantly assessing patients and collecting information.
1.2 THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK. To clarify our understanding of this research, the researcher has chosen to relate it to Gordon Marjory functional pattern to provide a more comprehensive nursing assessment of the patient. GORDON MARJORY FUNCTIONAL HEALTH PATTERN MODEL 1994. Marjory observed that functional health pattern evolved from client- environment interactions. Each pattern is an expression of biopsychosocial integration which can be influenced by biological, developmental, cultural, social and religious factors.
The main idea of this study is to bring out some of the experiences patients with sickle cell disorder. Patients need more comprehensive assessment of pain from nurses that understand the impact of the pain on their patients. Sickle cell pain is found to be challenging to the patient 's life as the pain is not predictable when to be intense and when to strike next. (Ballas, 2010; wilkeite al., 2010) The pain is also perceived from both Nociceptive (tissue damage pain) and Neuropathic (pain from the damaged peripheral nervous system). This paper will cover the painful sickle cell crises and day to day pain management finally the attitude of nurses towards their patients.
The Joint Commission will survey any healthcare organization that applies to be accredited. However, there are guidelines that a healthcare organization has to meet. These guidelines are: • The organization is in the United States or its territories or, if outside the United States, is operated by the U.S. government, under a charter of the U.S. Congress. • The organization assesses and improves the quality of its services. This process includes a review of care by clinicians, when appropriate.
2. What is informed consent?

STEPS DEFINITION APPLICATION Step One: Create a General or Specific (PICO) Clinical Question The clinical question is critical for a well-guided research that can be conducted to gather data or information that is efficient, and time-bound. As much as possible, the clinical question must be specific, characterized by the PICO components. ‘P’ stands for the target population and its characteristics to be considered, ‘I’ refers to the intervention program, approach, method or technique which will be focused on for further research, ‘C’ represents the different groups for contrast of the research, and ‘O’ stands for the outcomes and its assessment using standardized measure methods. It can be applied in determining the patient’s problem,
Some examples of sources of information that may be used for evaluating contracted services include the following: • Review of information about the contractor’s Joint Commission accreditation or certification status • Direct observation of the provision of care • Audit of documentation, including medical records • Review of incident reports • Review of periodic reports submitted by the individual or hospital providing services under contractual agreement • Collection of data that address the efficacy of the contracted service • Review of performance reports based on indicators required in the contractual agreement • Input from staff and patients • Review of patient satisfaction studies • Review of results of risk management activities Building a Culture of Accountability you have to build up a culture in your company to be more responsible. We do that through a thorough operating system that provides us better predictability in handling our organization. The main thing is to evaluate all you do, and keep people in charge of
The medical records are required by federal, non-government and state and local agencies. The medical records assist in communication among health providers and other multidisciplinary team in nursing and health care settings. Thus, the provision of planning and implementing patient health care and other recommended treatment based on the information presented in the medical records. In the nursing perspective, the patient assessment, including the initial, shift assessment of the patient is a significant purpose of the nursing documentation. Consequent to the planning of health care, implementation of care and evaluation of the treatment provided.
The decisions made encompasses all available health care options like visiting a public or private and modern or traditional health facility, self-medication and use of home remedies or not to utilize the available health services etc. Planning for health care services provision depends on the health needs and HSB of the population. Determining the health care seeking behavior is essential to provide need based health care services to the population. The desired HSB has been related to visiting official channels in a formally recognized health care system. Healthcare-seeking behavior is influenced by availability, quality and price of services as well as to social group, health views, residences and personal features of the users.
The quality of care on the basis of nursing care insufficiency was also explored and indicated that a important relationship presented between quality care and patient safety ratings . ( Schubert et al 2012 ) . However , Nursing clinical rounds lead nurses to interact with patients, respond to their interest , and adjust the unsatisfying conditions. regular nursing rounds provide an opportunity to recognize patient needs by progress nursing procedures. Although hospitals worker various methods of rounds for hospitalized patients, the main components of all rounds are pain preventing, bathing, changing position, and environmental comfortable .
