Day-4 clinical experience, I was scheduled to stay in the surgery/OR department to watch some procedure. The surgery/OR department is completely different than Med-Surg department. Nurses who work in the OR department seems very busy and fast when they do the patient assessment on the arrival to the department. In this department, the number-one priority nursing care I have seen was patient safety and requires teamwork and interprofessional collaboration. Because surgery is invasive and involves exposure to various anesthetic agents and drugs, and other environmental hazards, complications are common.
It was a medical mistake, should the doctor be accountable? The concept of medical errors and doctor accountability is usually asked about and will be further discussed. Countless protocols and hospital policies the doctors and other health professionals follow to help the patient heal and prevent any medical mistakes are present . In some cases, these protocols and policies are not followed like they are supposed to, causing patient harm. These errors are most of the time blamed on other healthcare professionals other than the doctor.
Warren and Creech-Tart (2008) discussed that fatigue experienced by health care provider is one of the contributor factors to deficiencies in documentation. Since some health care providers work long hours and have demanding client assignments, they may not have clear thinking processes required during the process of documentation. Illegible writing is one of the most common complaints in written documentation as a result of messy handwriting (Rodríguez-Vera, Marín, Sánchez, Borrachero, & Pujol, 2002). A messy handwriting may occur if the nurses write the notes too quickly in order to save time or too many workloads on the same time. Messy handwriting can lead to misinterpretation of information and cause poor nursing care.
The plan meant here is to analyze the problem that lead to delayed TAT and do analysis to illuminate the root cause to come out with solutions. After analyzed, it was identified that patients were complaining about waiting time is very long to make payment and collect results. There also will be an uncertainty where false positive result may develop and resources being wasted when carrying biochemical test. Then this test needed to repeated again which cause the delay as well. The main cause for these problems is lack of number of employees, lack of time management as well as lack of technology being used.
A hospital with a vision and mission strong in the employees makes a good work ambience. A patient-centric culture in a hospital provides a better patient experience. Hospital leaders increasingly recognize the connection between their cultures and patient satisfaction, and realize that many roles and people in their organizations are not inherently patient-centric . Some medical specialists, for instance, deliberately objectify patients ' conditions, thereby reducing their emotional involvement with the patient. They may believe that objectifying promotes better treatment decisions, and protects physicians from the stress of incorrect decisions or inability to help a patient.
Treatment is required after the occurrence of the disease. So, when the problem occurs, such as pressure of deadlines, pressures and crises that we begin to implement it muddled. As an example, pressure in completing assignments at the last minute before the deadline arrives. Next is, the activities important but not soon. Many people are trapped in this quadrant level.
Hospitals, both in the private and public sectors are now heavily reliant on technology, the breakdown of any equipment usually results in delays to services provided to patients and ultimately will affect productivity of a system with simultaneously possible loss of both technical and economic resources. Medical devices maintenance is an important aspect for an efficient health care services, aiming to achieve the highest possible utilization by decreasing the downtime and improving device performance and patient safety. There are many variables that affect the performance of hospital staff and medical devices maintenance is one of them (Rawashdeh). Every day we face pressure from equipment end-users requiring faster, easier and more efficient new ways of doing things, raising the challenge and driving the change on how we can deliver, in particular, to respond as quickly as possible. To achieve this, well-run organizations will always strive for innovations and continuous improvement in the workplace.
The high cost of losing key representatives has for quite some time been perceived. At the point when consider the Hemas Hospital the circumstance likewise same. It seems high work turnover, particularly nurture. 3.6 Work over-burden for different representatives Because of medical issues and family responsibility a few workers can't play out their obligations to the normal level. So others should do the wiped out representatives work stack as well.
With such a diverse range of services offered. Tanaka hospital needed to implement a Patient Management solution. The Challenge The challenge was the fact that many patients, particularly those who travel long distances to visit the department, tend to arrive hours before their scheduled appointment, further adding to the existing queues. Patient visibility was a further challenge; with staff time wasted searching for patients through manual records. Functionality of the new
In this case, his mistake has to be analyzed and feeling of self-accusation should not appear. On the other hand, this analyze and rationalization should be made by physician himself, because many physician’s have lack of forgiveness and understanding to their colleagues mistakes (Rubin, 2015). Then, their influence can rather worsen the situation than correct it. In addition, medical error has to be reported to physician’s institution. Thought reports to these institutions about errors and prevented errors are useful, because they help to reform the whole healthcare system and make it better, according to Barach et al.
