It is to ensure accurate identification in identifying the individual as the person for the treatment is intended of care. From this experience I understand that, it is essential to utilize two- patient identifier according to the standards and policies of the hospital. Secondly, by asking an open-ended question active communication whenever possible and ask the patient to state his or her full name and date of birth of the individual is to ensure the safety of individuals during their care, including prevention of medication, diagnostic and treatment errors. IPSG, states that by utilizing a two patient- identifier, facilitates patient participation. Thus, in an open-ended inquiry active communication possibly by requesting patient to state his or her full
When speaking to a patient about something that is happening or is on the body I would tell them that it's okay to get check-ups a couple times. I would tell the patient that it is better to know about what's going on and to keep up to date rather to not know anything. Medical Assistants job is to always make the patient feel as comfortable as you can don't ever make them feel like their much different or that whatever they're going through is something to be ashamed about. I would make sure to remind them again that everything is fine and things will get
To support this claim Watson stated that ‘nurses who are not able to practice caring can become hardened, brittle, worn down, and robot like. (Watson p.467). Watson calm that patients heal are directly affected by how they feel about their current situation. Therefore, it is the nurses and healthcare practitioners’ duty to ensure that patients are comfortable and are properly cared for. Due to overload, nurses and practitioner experience reoccurring errors, which place patients and healthcare workers’ life, at risk.
Before anything else, however, we must consider why these events occur in the first place and how the nurse manager plays a part in dealing with such violence. There are various reasons why violence happens in the hospital, it is most likely those patients who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs are unlikely to adequately handle their emotions and behaviours. Patients with head contusions are not able to control their behaviours which can be impetuous and violent at times, when a death occurs. Anger takes the place of anguish and sadness which can be directed at hospital staff or other visitors. Elongated waiting times and delays can cause violence and when waiting and anxiety combine, the outcome can be irritated and angry patients and family members, the same can result from
Inadequate behavior and increased workload due to pressure of patient and acute care responsibility gives rise to stress and unethical behavior. Considering the oddness for the multidisciplinary health team, nurses are a large group practicing at hospital as compared to doctors. They both need to minimize their stress level that may lead to poor patients care (Secemsky, 2013). There lies a strong relationship between doctor and nurse. This traditional relationship has different role and responsibilities and each are directly linked to hospital administration and patient.
Introduction Breaking in confidentiality in hospital settings is one of the serious matter in the eyes of the laws. Nurses can be charged in court for doing such disgraceful act. It is part of a nurse’s responsibility to be more vigilant and wary when handling patient’s personal information. In other words, being a nurse does not just simply mean carrying out our daily orders and tasks, but also to ensure the safeguarding of patient’s information. Nurses must have the sense of responsibility to ensure that written confidential information are securely kept.
Management must also tend to the needs of those nurses suffering from compassion fatigue. Studies confirm that caregivers play host to a high level of compassion fatigue. Day in, day out, workers struggle to function in care giving environments that constantly present heart wrenching, emotional challenges. Affecting positive change in society, a mission so vital to those passionate about caring for others, is perceived as elusive, if not impossible. This painful reality, coupled with first-hand knowledge of society 's flagrant disregard for the safety and wellbeing of the feeble and frail, takes its toll on everyone from full time employees to part time volunteers.
Doctors need to listen to patient when they are telling what they feel are wrong with their health and bodies because the patient knows their body best. Many doctors think that patients do not have any knowledge about medicine and just ignore the important information from the patient and this is a really wrong thing to do because this can cause false diagnosis and medical errors. Simple thing such as when a patient enter the room, doctor should greet the patient with a welcoming tone then introduce himself/herself also make sure that him/her is pronouncing the patient’s name correctly should be done to show a basic respect. A doctor should treat every patient individually and also give every patient an undivided attention while listening to his or her problems to make the patients feel that the doctor really cares. A good doctor should be able to make the patient feel relaxed by treating them with patient and pay attention on small details such as avoid sitting too close or too far away from the patient.
Complication and sudden changes happen everywhere in the healthcare organization as what happened in case study 1. Alterations in the regulations, protocols in using the equipment and implementations of the recent system were all at once bombarded to the Gastroenterology team and they have reacted in such an unprofessional way. With the Collaborative team model, each team members and other teams as well will understand why changes can occur in any given time without prior notice from the head management. They will have to adapt in situations where crisis happen in a moment while seeing ahead the changes that has to take place so that they can give quality service and care to patients even if that patient is not from their department. Complexity is not about giving a solution to the present issue but how team members manage the situation at hand.
