We do not recommend acyclovir or naloxone. Early management is necessary for prevention of complications as these patients are prone to meningitis, early death , pneumothorax, deafness and autism. Keywords: : meconium aspiration syndrome- suction and intubation – antibiotics and acyclovir – complications – thyroid function
The NICE guidelines explain a multifaceted approach for the clinical identification of gastroenteritis, the nurse would complete several clinical assessments, as part of a multidisciplinary team, simultaneously, whilst ensuring the rights of the child are up held in line with the NMC Code of Conduct (2015) which centres around dignity, privacy and confidentiality. Due to the onset of diarrhoea and vomiting assessment of hydration is paramount, “Assessment of hydration has three main elements: clinical assessment, review of fluid balance charts and review of blood chemistry.” (Scales and Pilsworth, 2008). Clinical assessment refers to a physical examination, this may include assessing the tongue and mouth for moisture, however “The first part of the physical assessment is to ask patients if they feel thirsty, as thirst is the first clinical indicator of dehydration.” (Epstein, Perkins, Cookson, de Bono, 2004). A fluid balance chart allows for documentation of the overall input and output of fluids, the importance of which is stressed in the NMC Code of Conduct (2015) “Keep clear and accurate records relevant to your practice.” The fluid balance chart takes into consideration all routes, for example an input may be via intravenous fluids or orally, an output may
The nurse had responsibility not to disclose any information about patient’s treatment to anyone who is not directly involved in patient’s care. The fact that the patient was famous singer does not justify nurse’s action. The nurse
But this work on ideas and policy leaves two questions unanswered. First, why does failure sometimes not cause changes in policy? In some cases, policy after failure drifts in the sense that it lacks coherent intellectual links between policy tools and desired outcomes. This drift can take the form of continuing to implement failed policies or altering the selection and settings of policy tools in cosmetic or contradictory ways that do not address the sources of failure. For example, every informed observer has concluded that the U.S. health care system fails to achieve important objectives, but significant policy change in this area has proven impossible to achieve despite the fact that countless serious reform proposals have circulated for years.
Imperative non-pharmacologic measures along with the right kind of medications benefit patients in the management of disease. A review of literature was conducted on the topic of dietary compliance in preventing fluid overload in diseases like end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and congestive heart failure (CHF). Focus was narrowed down on topics related to congestive heart failure because of its part as a core measure in the acute hospital setting for prevention of readmissions within a 30-day period per Medicare requirements. A study conducted by Abshire et al. (2015), appraised the components of nutrition-related interventions for patients with CHF (Abshire et al., 2015).
This is evidenced by questioning and recurrent episodes of heart failure. In addressing this problem, the nursing care plan is expected to determine the relationship with how therapies reduce recurrent episodes and complications of heart failure, and list all the signs and symptoms which require immediate intervention (Vera,
Introduction: Epilepsy is a common chronic neurological disease that the use of self-management strategies is essential to increase patient safety and quality of life. The aim of this study Identify the features and capabilities of epilepsy self-management application from Perspectives of Patient and physicians. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, the perspective of 100 patients with epilepsy who were members of the Iranian Epilepsy Society and 15 physicians who were member or colleagues of the Iranian Epilepsy Society were studied by using the questionnaire about training needs, essential data elements and features of the application. The data were analyzed by the use of descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation) and Kruskal-Wallis
I focused on each area of the healthcare organization and role of each person in the causation of the error and created a risk management plan by answering the below-mentioned questions as follows: Patient Identification Process " What specific patient identification processes and protocols are used? " Did the hospital staff verify the patient's identity? " Was the patient identified by a 3-point identification using a bar-coded wristband or any other means? Though both patients' problems were correctly identified in the emergency room, a proper protocol or identification process was not followed in the operation room holding area by the nurse. She just asked her name and never checked the wristband or used a barcode system or date of birth for identification.
The part of clinical clinicians however covers with the part of specialists, yet analysts don't offer medication treatment or stun treatment.

The expected outcomes are standards against which nurse judges if goals have been met. Evaluation of client response to nursing care requires the use of evaluative measure simply as the reassessment of patient symptoms. Vital signs and auscultation of breath sounds. Observation of client skill performance and discussion of how they feel. Lab results such as chest x-ray to confirm whether pneumonia diagnosis is still present.
At NBRHC, if there is no neurologist on staff, ER physicians have to contact telehealth and request a consult with a neurologist via teleconference. This process is time consuming and inefficient. There is also a problem with not always having a neurologist available right away. By identifying the problems such as gaps and redundancies in the stroke protocol process, the team can assess and determine any possible improvements that can be created, even with the current cutbacks to NBRHC, the door-to-needle time for tPA administration can be decreased to Ontario
