You did a great job. You are acting as an advocate for the patient for their interest. We must support the rights of patients who are unable to advocate for themselves .We are facing lot of ethical problems in our workplace. Nurses must take a decision in Ethical dilemmas. These decisions affected by so many factors, including principles learned in school and nurses personal beliefs, and values.
This decision would later prove to be an extensively awful one. The nurse made the same bad decision. She decided to help the young couple. She knew they barely knew each other yet helped them out anyway. The adults should have acted mature and held their ground.
The staff nurse followed all protocols defined by the hospital. When Monroe arrived at the hospital there was no apparent emergency. Moreover, the nurse went above and beyond to provide for her, she gave Monroe information where to get OB services and even offered an ambulance
Generally, science such as medicine is highly supported by quantitative research and methodology. According to Tinkle & Beaton, “it has been argued that there is an over-valuation of the empirical/quantitative view because it is seen as “true science” (as cited in McEwen & Wills, 2014, p. 17). We see this with evidence based practice guidelines in several areas of nursing. For example, at one time, we would treat fever in pediatric patients with aspirin. We since have learned that this puts the child as risk for Reye’s syndrome. When completing research on abstract subjects such as compassion fatigue, utilizing repeatable tools or instruments allows for qualitative information to be gathered and collated in a quantitative manner to support
1. Introduction Compassion fatigue experienced by doctors and nurse, the term is used to describe their emotionless and apathy to the patients. However, today, compassion fatigue appears everywhere, not only happens with healthy professionals but also with all the caregivers, and even to us and to any person. Compassion fatigue becomes more common in media. In fact, compassion fatigue has been called a form of burnout to describe ‘journalists’ secondary trauma in being routinely exposed to atrocities.
The nurses said they would contact my doctor to inform him that he is needed at the hospital. An hour later the nurse came to check up on me then left the room. My father was out the room and overheard the nurses asked each other if they called the doctor yet. None of them called my doctor. After the nurses contacted my doctor, he decided to take a few hours to get to the hospital because he wanted to see all his patients at his office
An example of a low income family that could benefit from these services is a Latino Agricultural worker. Poorer health among these farm workers and their children have been proven. Higher mortality rates have also been recognized among the children in these communities. Many of these children have vitamin deficiencies, which can contribute to infection rates. A lack of independent means of transportation, knowledge, and demand of their jobs played a factor in the high mortality rates.
The lady then looked at the paper and realized it was wrong and started to laugh and said “ I am so sorry I wrote the wrong one down.” I knew that if I didn 't notice the papers they would have done surgery on my right knee instead of the left knee. I was moved to another room where other people were surrounded by nurses getting prepared for surgery. The moment I was stationed in my room I was surrounded by different nurses. There was the anesthetic nurse, the head nurse, the assistant nurses and even the nurses that are in training.
My concept is compassion fatigue. Compassion fatigue (CF) as it relates to nurses working in an emergency department dealing with secondary trauma causing symptoms of compassion fatigue. The measurement tool, which I will use, is the Professional Quality of Life (ProQOL) scale. This scale has been in use since 1995 and has had several revisions, the last one updated in 2010 and it has been translated into 17 languages. The ProQOL measures compassion satisfaction (CS) and CF and its subcategories, burnout (BO) and secondary traumatic stress (STS).
Nurse Ana was doing her Individualized Education Program that was not done by the other nurse who just walked out and quit her position. It was a very productive day, but there was some unprofessionalism that was going on as well that unfortunately as a student like me should not be hearing. My mom always says, “ In in one

I realized that the previous nurse was not able to see what was happening because she barely assessed the patient during her shift. In addition, she failed to take into consideration the opinion of the caregiver. Once I start practicing, I plan to incorporate best practice guidelines to the care of my patients. Also, this experience gave me the opportunity to practice my skills and to test my ability to think critically in emergency situations. The most demanding aspect of this experience for me was to carry the interventions on my own.
According to Robert and Machon (2015 p.6) compassion involves healthcare professionals adopting a caring approach in their healthcare practice and certainly connation of dignity, empathy, warmth, kindness and care. Care Quality Commission (CQC) (2015) states that compassion involves supporting clients by building relationships based on empathy, respect and
