Care provided this way would support healing, enhance patient experience and lead to faster discharge. Nursing from my experience, are culturally sensitive and adjusted accordingly to a variety of requests from patients and accommodated most of them. Nursing staff today works with a diverse population and it is important to stay professional and culturally sensitive. Nurses should assess their own knowledge, feelings and values when providing care for patients from different backgrounds. It also important to know about different cultures and increase personal cultural awareness (Leishman, 2004).
Peplau explains that the nurse assumes different roles as the relationship between patient and nurse progresses and develops (Feely, 1997). These roles evolve from stranger to teacher to resource to counselor to surrogate and finally to leader (Feely, 1997). As a stranger, the nurse and patient are greeting each other and regarding one another as an unfamiliar person (Feely, 1997). As a teacher, the nurse provides knowledge related to a patient’s need (“Theory of”, 2012). As a resource, the nurse provides specific knowledge in response to a new situation (“Theory of”, 2012).
How might the ANA code of ethics and the Nurse Practice Act help to guide Josepha? The legal and ethical issue that Josepha has to use is. He has to know how to discuss the issue he has with the higher or manager of the head nurse. It is good to communicate the issue you have with the managers instead of felling bad thing about them. As I read the “Team STEPPS makes strides for better communication”, some of the tools like; (SBARQ) is used in many organizations, especially during patient hand-offs.
As a nurse it is important to know when to give your input and when to hold off. At the end of the day, what the patient wants is what they will receive from every nurse on the floor. A nurse must be a patients advocate, meaning as a nurse you will support your patient and defend them and what they believe in. Bringing me to the third professional value, human dignity, the value or worth of a person (96). This value, in my opinion is the
A registered nurse works with the doctor and the nurse will create a plan for care. The nurse care involves distributing medication, following the patient 's condition, controlling pain, and giving support however. Medical social services. Medical social workers assist patients in counseling and finding resources to help patients and their family. Some social workers are case managers.
Professional practice reflects autonomy when the nurse respects patient’s rights to make decisions about their health care” (Taylor, 1997). At the nursing home, I witnessed many of the nurses discuss with the residents what they wanted to do about certain situations. Autonomy honors the fact that it is the patient and the families right to make certain decisions about health care. Nurses also are constantly making sure that they can provide their patients with the best information to help them make a more successful choice about their health care (Taylor
The third aspect mentioned that nurses must have communicative capabilities. The nurses serve as spokespersons for patients who are often in vulnerable positions. The nurses are easily accessible and can act as a link between the patient and other professions. According to people/superiors, nurses can use the right substantive arguments on behalf of a patient’s interests or needs. They accept that this expertise is important for patients because it is related to the quality of
A nurse has to be able to communicate with a patient, record the progress of the patient, and also operate the equipment being used. Nurses have to be kind and compassionate as well, “The character of a nurse is as important as the knowledge she possesses”. It takes a lot of patience to be a registered nurse, and not everyone is cut out for the job. I think I would be a great fit for registered nursing because I communicate well with people and I can multi-task. Being able to multi-task is probably one of the most important skills needed for nursing.
The report, emphasises that carers knowledge is a vital source of information and that nurses need to listen to what they have to say in order to provide optimum care. A community learning disability nurse in the UK, Phillips (2012) discussed how they rely on carers to support them, by asking them to fill out a patient-centred assessment on the person's needs and preferences in order to plan appropriate care. Although this study only discusses how they care for people with intellectual disabilities in their service, it successfully explains how when everyone supports each other, patients tend to have more
My belief is that nurses should consider all a patient’s subsystems and the environment in which they live into to determine if the patient may be able achieve health as defined in our textbook. For example, people living areas during periods of social unrest and government chaos, most likely lack a lot of internal and external resources to be able to manage their health. As future nurses I believe we must keep in mind that there are different degrees of health and we should build trust with our patients, one way to do that is to respect the cultural values and beliefs of our patients. In my belief, an overall physical and psychological wellness of a patient is what I consider important aspects of their
