Patient Safety in Obstetrics and Gynecology ABSTRACT: Since publication of the Institute of Medicine's landmark report To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System, emphasis on patient safety has steadily increased. Obstetrician–gynecologists should continuously incorporate elements of patient safety into their practices and also encourage others to use these practices. ______________________________________ The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) is committed to improving quality and safety in women's health care. The Institute of Medicine report, To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System, notes that errors in health care are a significant cause of death and injury (1). Despite disagreements over the actual numbers cited, all health care professionals agree that patient safety is extremely important and should be addressed by the overall health care system.

She was getting shots for the meningitis, but after the fifth they decided to stop the shots and after they stop the relapse was what caused the deafness. It was very hard for Doris Jean because she was already starting to say some words. After the second fever, she went deaf and wouldn’t talk for years and when she did start talking, no one understood her.
According to the Egan (2010) he says clients fear disorganization this means they fear to self-disclosure because they feel they cannot face what they might find out about themselves, Kate was sick for few months but refused to go to the hospital and find out what was wrong her. She lacks trust, she does not trust anymore about her condition so she feels comfortable when nobody knows about it. As her counselor I would ask her open ended question more for her to tell me more about her family and how she is planning to tell because she saying the other part of her want to tell them but the other part does not want to tell them about her condition. As her counselor I would talk sense in her for her to understand that it is important for her parents to know about her illness. Firstly I would talk about confidentiality that everything we talking about are between me and her and inviting her parents to counselling also with her will be a good idea for her to open up and tell her parents about the
The National Institute of Nursing Research The National Institute of Nursing conducts research to improve the health and well being of the population at large as they incorporate both clinical and research training on health and illness across all ages to prevent diseases, while they manage and improve the care of each individual. The goal of the research facility is to apply new technologies to promote health while developing scientist of the future ("National Institute of Nursing Research," 2011). There are three current methodologies to research; quantitative, qualitative, and outcome research. Examining all three closely reveals a complex distinction in methods of research. The quantitative method focuses on the formal, objective process
Teen suicide, a disease infecting all humanity, the last, and single solution is ‘The Program’. Very miniscule mistakes could get you or someone close to you flagged, they will be taken to a place of treatment, but when they come back their memories will all be gone. Those in charge of the program see this method as helpful, but all they are doing is putting empty people into society. Sloane thinks she is happy, that she will not be taken into The Program, but she’s not okay. Every day at school she answers two questions; In the past day have you felt lonely or overwhelmed?
She probably wouldn’t have explained to me well anyway. She would just say she gave them formula. My sister didn’t breast feed because she is a diabetic. The doctor told her not to. Interviewer: Really?
Sam is hoping she doesn’t need an abortion because she couldn’t afford it, and then her parents who be angry. Halsey’s voice delivering these lines, was slow and deliberate. She sounded heartbroken as she told this first story. She didn’t want to have to watch her friend suffer. Halsey continues her poem with the her own story of sexual assault.
Maybe my mom hadn’t told her. Maybe she never would. I prayed with all my heart and hoped and prayed some more that she didn’t have cancer. That the tumor inside of her lungs wasn’t carcinogenic. I had been doing research on the topic, against my mom’s suggestions.
A hybrid staffing grid has been developed to allow both considerations to be accomplished (see Table 4.0, 4.01 and 4.02). The evidence reflects that appropriate nurse staffing is not only crucial for the well-being and safety needs of the staff; it is also essential to the safety of the patients. According to Butler et al., (2011), “Hospital nurse stafﬁng models and patient and staff-related outcomes”, interventions involving hospital nurse stafﬁng models may improve patient results and staff-related outcomes, which applies in particular to the introduction of primary nursing and self-scheduling. CAN Vantage point (2009) “Safe Nurse Staffing: Looking Beyond the Raw Numbers”, has implied when implementing a staffing model, many variables must be included such as
When she found out she had Leukemia, she didn’t know what to do or how to take that news. Sometimes she didn’t have the energy to be motivated, she felt like she was too weak. She started to value each day, each moment because we never know up to when we will be alive. Her baby gave Emma the motivation to fight Leukemia. I choose this essay because, I feel that no one is mentally prepare of what can happen next.
My sister quickly filled my mother’s place, as we tried to keep our minds off of what just happened and focused on the fact that we had not eaten anything all morning. I could no longer produce tears. Accepting the fact that my grandmother is gone, is something that I know she wanted from her family. Thoughts of my grandmother being a statistic of cancer is heart wrenching. Leukemia did not win against my grandmother, but I also wish that she would have been able to get the necessary treatment she needed for a person her age.

They not only focus on disease prevention they also focus on emotional, physical, mental and social functioning of each individual. I personally feel that Healthy People 2020 influences health by supporting their prevention and promotion areas with evidence based practice information.
Libby’s mother lied to Libby that Libby hit someone who has been seriously injured, and Libby’s mother knew that that person is Libby’s friend Kasey. But she didn’t tell Libby. Libby’s mind was disorder after the accident, and that causes Libby had an imagination of Kasey was still alive. At the end, when Libby’s mother and father tells the truth to her, Libby was completely crumbled. If Libby’s mother didn’t lie to her, and told her the truth, Libby would be very sad and shocked that time, but it would be way better than let her know at the end.
