As well some remembering and misremembering past information can alter current situations. Inadequate feedback can really lead clients to a misdiagnosis and false events. Garb et al. (?) did a great job of explaining and providing information why it can be difficult for therapists to learn from their own clinical
The clinician-patient confidentiality relationship is an important bond for patients to feel secure. This relationship is almost unbreakable; however, it is not invincible. Confidentiality of the patient can be broken if the patient discloses information about harming themselves or someone else. In the Tarasoff case study, the ethical question posed is: is it ethical for a therapist to break patient confidentiality if imminent danger of the patient or another person is disclosed during a therapy session? Arguing that this is indeed unethical, counterarguments pose that breaking confidentiality is a risk to all patients.
Sometimes, however, it can be difficult to recognize them until it might be too late, as is exemplified in articles by Atul Gawande and William Langewiesche. (2010; 2003) Biases and fallacies can be particularly harmful when they affect one’s job. When the lives of others depend on one’s commitment to performing one’s job thoroughly, precisely, and correctly, these biases and fallacies can prove to be injurious, or even fatal. Such is the case in both Gawande and Langewiesche’s articles. In his article, When Doctors Make Mistakes, Atul Gawande describes a personal experience— an incident wherein he made mistakes while performing surgery.
I had to learn of the potential sypmtoms and remain constantly aware of them during my interaction with the patients as I tried to build a therapeutic relationship with them around those issues. Moreover, as not all patients experienced the same symptoms, a different approach was needed in each case. An issue that I found particularly challenging was that some of the patients did not want to reason with the fact that the hallucinations/delusions they were experiencing were not real and even when they came to accept them as false they did not always want to silence them or make them disappear (see appendix A). Therefore, in accordance to the NMC code (2008), I had to learn to repsect each person's decision about their treatment and encourage them to work together with me in order to develop a care plan that better suited their individual needs and wishes. Thus, it became evident to me that using a person centred approach n my practice was crucial in order not only to achieve the best possible therapeutic results, but to also empower the patients through the process .
Hi Zachary , although we anticipate our colleagues to take the Florence Nightingale oath at heart, we are observing an increase of dishonest nursing. When we notices other charting fraudulently, do we call them on it at that time. The accountability of nurses are imperative nevertheless, we must advocate for our patient safety and to do no harm. Cheating in anything only limits your capability to be great . The credibility of your work and reputation is essential in the medical field.
Warren also stated that “If we judged ourselves by how our actions are perceived by others, we may become more sensitive and understanding of any hurtful responses by them” (Warren 1). Even judging by actions is not right because things can be meant to help, but can instead result in something going wrong. Something that one person sees as disastrous could be seen as good by another person based on what each person knows and the intention. Thus, judging by actions is still not an effective way to judge a person, one must only judge by what is unseen; personality, morals, and intentions. There are many places where one can see how judging based on appearance affects people.
health care has many faces when it comes to fraud. These groups have the luxury of being creative because it gives them access to a large range of variables in which to proceed with all sorts of wrongdoing: * Have a range of potential medical conditions and treatments to which base false claims. * The ability to spread false billings within many insurers simultanesously, including public programs as Medicare and Medicaid, Increasing fraud proceeds while lessening their chances of being detected by any single insurer. * The population of our nation 's patients. -- The most common types of fraud commited by dishonest providers include: * Billing for services that were never provided, obtaining identity theft to fabricate claims or by padding claims with charges for procedures or services that did not take
We are often face with choices which affect our lives. Often, when faced with these choices, we find it easy to determine which option is best or right. However, in some cases, choices become tremendously difficult to make. Physician assisted suicide and active euthanasia both cause such debate, producing much conflict over whether these practices are acceptable and, if so, under what circumstances. Despite the confusion surrounding these subject, it is argued here that physician assisted suicide and active euthanasia are ethical under certain conditions and should be legalized in a manner which will allow these procedures to be carried out appropriately.
This man is a secretive character whose past and intentions are obscure, but is eventually found to be an evil character with a bad past that has wrongly caused harm to others. For these reasons, the reader would not find this character to be relatable or honest, something that particularly stands out due to Straker’s medical profession. However, having characters who are villainous and establish weak connections with the reader are still important, as they are meant to allow the reader to pick a side and distinguish between the good and bad. Though Straker may not be a trustworthy person, he has great significance in the
Hawkins needs to weigh the pros and cons of donating this medication to Dr. Petrov. Some cons to this decision would include potentially harming a patient by giving them an expired med, as well as suffering legal and institutional consequences by donating the medications. Some pros may include helping people in the Soviet Union gain access to medication, and helping out a fellow health care professional in need. By weighing the pros and cons to determine what the best decision is Mr. Hawkins acts in a utilitarian manner. I think the main struggle I have with donating these medications is the potential harm that it may cause to the person receiving the medication.
It is important to enter correct codes for patient billing because the insurance needs to know what the patient is being diagnosed with so they can charge the right amount. When incorrect codes are entered by someone, the claim that was submitted can be rejected or denied. A rejected claims means that there is an error within the claim which means that the claim has to be corrected and resubmitted. A denied claim means the claim has been determined by an insurance company to be unpayable. Both types of claims are often denied or rejected because of common billing errors or missing information, but can also be denied based on patient coverage (Medical Billing
Pulling on my personal experience working within agencies that provide IOP services or addiction services, most often focus on group work to address issues. Lundahl et al (2010) suggest that in this environment MI could be less effective in promoting change. The environment which clinicians practice has a significant role in the modalities chosen for intervention, with frameworks such as MI, the environment can be counterproductive to the application and success of the intervention, despite best intentions of the
Transitions in care, such as admission to and discharge from the hospital, put patients at risk for errors due to poor communication and inadvertent information loss (1–5). One discrepancy does not necessarily mean an error. In fact, most discrepancies are due to adapting chronic medication to the patient’s newly diagnosed condition, or because the examinations and/or interventions performed could interfere with their usual medication. Medication discrepancies, established as unexplained differences among documented drug regimens at the interfaces of care1 (admission, transfer, and discharge) are highly prevalent. Some are intended therapeutic modifications, but others are unintentional and clinically unjustified.
Less work load for each individual is achieved, therefore relieving the stress. Trust between the health care professionals rise this therefore builds strong foundations. Negative issues could surface regarding multi-disciplinary teams, danger of information being shared incorrectly and patient’s slipping through the net is possible, leading to the wrong treatment needed for individuals. As the health care institution is very busy and fast paced, it is understandable that mistakes are quite easily made. Codes of conduct within the (HCPC) The codes of conduct are a set of guidelines and rules you are expected to abide by in your healthcare role.
However, many times the patient might abuse the privilege of having this option. As stated before, many patients who request this treatment are suffering from depression or anxiety. (Endlink6) If legalized, the everyday issues America is constantly battling would only increase. As the constant clash of those who support and those who oppose Assisted Suicide continues, several people are finding out the dangers and risks using this treatment creates. People are not commonly resorting to this option because of the morals that are disregarded, the negative message that is projected, and because they know how precious life is.
