NOW WHAT (modifying future outcomes) At this level, the role of Anticoagulant team has its major part in treatment of Mr Moore plus NMC’s other patients, and also the colleagues of Anticoagulant management. This aspect makes sure the optimal level of Anticoagulant therapy by evading offensive risks of haemorrhage. The reflection case exemplifies to reflect the decision that I made is so perfect but in future if I had sufficient time I could ask patient’s general practitioner for the authorisation if he or she could fund new oral anticoagulants. The prescribed medicines influence patient’s behaviour by taking medicines and improve adherence. 7 steps of safe prescribing with respect to NMC standards It is stated that the entire process to prescribe or not is assumed as a complex aspect method that wants different many factors, which is considered before that all significant piece of paper that is all given to the patient by prescribing the pyramid of steps and process that may help in prescribing either nurse or midwifery, in that way he or she would be responsive of all bases, which has been enclosed (Stahl,
As the patient Mr McDonald becomes closer to his expected discharge date, it is important to arrange all home care considerations before departure from the hospital. Patients who are beginning self-management at home for discharge are to be given a written plan of action, prescription medication for self-initiating in case of an acute exacerbation. The nurse should offer both written down and verbal information regarding COPD and the therapeutic recommendations that have been made by healthcare professionals. It is also important that they are in contact with their case manager for any support and to have continual monthly check ups by telephone (Sedeno, Nault, Hamd, & Bourbeau, 2009). The nurse should ensure and arrange that the supplier of the oxygen equipment regularly visit and stock up as needed.
The nurse duty is to review the received medication from the pharmacist then administer the medication to the patient. Any errors that occurs in this management can lead to medication error.

The first way would be to check the 5 rights more than once and very carefully. The right patient determination is essential, and typically two-forms of identification are required. This can include checking the patients identification bracelet, asking the patient to state their name and date of birth, or scanning the barcode on the ID bracelet. The nurse must also confirm any allergies. The nurse must have the knowledge to determine if the drug prescribed is the correct drug, correct dose, correct route, and the correct time.
Before administrating the medication along with the three checks the nurse themselves should have already done, they also have to scan the medication along with the patients wristband. If it is the right medication and the right patient the machine will
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.
Medication reconciliation assignment was an individual activity that I had to perform as a part of a course requirement. For this activity, we had clinical simulation lab organized with standardized patient. In simulation lab, I had to refer patient’s chart that includes his home medications and then interview standardized patient and get all detailed information regarding his medication schedule including name of medication, strength, dosage form, route, frequency and any adverse event associated with any medication patient is taking. After interviewing patient, I had to update patient’s medication list in to the patient’s chart and based on my clinical knowledge if I found any discrepancy in the patient medication list then I have to come
Instead of asking, “are you taking all of your medication at the proper times?” A better way to ask would be, “how are you taking your medications?”, and allowing the patient to explain how in their own terms. After asking this question it would also be a good follow up point to ask what issues they may be having with their medications. In practice we would be able to pull up that patents medication fill history and see how often they are picking up their medications at the right times and we would be able to discuss any further issues with that patient at that
Medication History Reflective Writing Pharmacy Practice II Shaymous Juhnke As a student in SDSU’s pharmacy program one of the activities required to prepare us for real world pharmacy practice is to perform a medication history. Performing a medication history and reviewing it can be helpful to in acquiring information about a patents disease states, keeping an up to date record on their current medications, and helps prevent and resolve potential and current issues with patents medications. One of many important aspects of a medication history is determining how knowledgeable a patent is about their medications and their disease states. For the medication knowledge I feel that this means that the patient can identify which drug treats which disease state, how to correctly use the drug and how often, and when to get help if experiencing side effects or if
This would help inform decision making clinically. Nevertheless, the journals or article must have a realistic research question (s) and objectives that would determine the appropriate research design. The study is a randomised control trial (RCT) quantitative study conducted by Rose et al. (2005) with the sole aim of determining the effectiveness of topical chloramphenicol for children presenting with acute infective conjunctivitis in a primary care sector, United Kingdom (UK). Bowling (2009) defines RCT as an experimental method for the evaluation of the effectiveness of health services and interventions in relation to specific conditions.
