The first statement in table 4.b, “I am enthusiastic about my job,” has the highest mean of 5.15 (very often) and the second statement “I am proud of the work that I do” has the second highest mean of 5.12 (very often). ED staff nurses identified respect and trust gained from the patients and their family that make them enthusiastic and proud of their work. This reason was exemplified by one nurse who stated that “May lumapit sa akin sa market na isang babae para bumati at nagpapasalamat sa pag-alaga ko sa kanya noon daw sa emergency room (ER).” (“While I was at the market, a woman approached and thanked me for taking care of her when she was in the Emergency Room.”). This finding is also associated with the vital role of ED nurses in maintaining and sustaining the health and

Patient Safety in Healthcare: Pressure Ulcer Rate Hospitals admit patients all over the United States (US) every day. Generally, the public regards hospitals as safe places to receive the care they need. Patients and families perceive nurses as being trustworthy and hard workers that dedicate their lives to caring for the sick. Utilizing Patient Safety Indicators (PSIs) can assist hospitals to achieve the best patient outcomes, deliver safe, quality care, and prevent adverse events. The purpose of this paper is to define the purpose of the PSIs 90 and role in healthcare today.
Effective Communication Fosters Positive Working Relationships The quality of relationships between nurses and other team members greatly influences delegation success and overall teamwork. A productive team is one that has timely ongoing communication, a willingness to collaborate, and initiative. The following are important points to consider regarding the registered nurse 's role in improving communication and relationships within a team nursing model: As the RN, you must clearly define expectations for UAP and LPNs on reporting the completion of tasks. Remember, the patient is ultimately under your care. While you are able to delegate tasks, it 's still your responsibility to see that each task was carried out effectively and safely.
I chose nursing specifically because I love the idea of taking care of people, and nurses make a huge difference and have such an impact on the patients and their loved ones lives. In my junior year, I went to Butler hospital to shadow one of the nurses that worked there. During her shift, she was always busy and working hard in order to take care of all her patients. The thought of working hard
Nurses see people during all aspects of life. Whether it is one of the best moments such as child birth, or one of the less fortunate times such as a family realizing their eldest member is nearing the end of their life, a nurse is there through it all. It was my mother’s fascinating stories such as these that made me realize that I could not imagine myself working in any other
A Compassion Fatigue Among ED Nurses Problem When one thinks about nursing, caring, empathy, and compassion come to mind. There is a link, an unbreakable union, for nurses that "compassion fatigue is the cost of caring for others in pain" (Boyle, 2015, p. 49). Compassion fatigue (CF) and its impact on nurses are predominant problems in many Emergency Departments (ED). Nurses perform a number of procedures throughout the day, but primarily the thing that they deliver the most is themselves (Harris & Quinn-Griffin, 2015). Nurses give care, succor, kindness, and tenderness to patients, families, other nurses; support to doctors and advanced practitioners, and give directions to medical technicians, nursing assistants, and other staff every
Nurses dispense comfort, compassion, and caring without even a prescription ~ Val Saintsbury (Nursing and Compassion, 2015, expression 2). When one thinks of nursing, one thinks caring, empathy and compassion. They are linked together in an unbreakable union, so much so for nurses that "compassion fatigue is the cost of caring for others in pain" (Boyle, 2015, p. 49). Nurses work in a demanding, often-traumatic environment where many things are happening at the same time. Being exposed to patient's pain and suffering on a daily basis can influence a nurse's capacity to give compassionate care (Knobloch Coetzee & Klopper, 2010).
I discovered that they are in the healthcare field because they truly have a passion for helping others and that is when I realized I too want to spend my life helping people. I have respected healthcare professionals since I was young and through this experience I have an even greater respect for them. I am drawn to nurses especially for they left a warm impact on me when I visited the hospital often during my childhood. I greatly admire nurses for their dedication, patience, and care, and I believe they make a big impact in a healthcare environment. Every patient before they leave the clinic always thank the volunteers who are not healthcare professionals with a big smile, the
