Patient Safety Assignment Marwa Ghabra U00020161 Patient safety blood transfusion Assignment What is patient safety? Patient safety is defined as a new healthcare discipline that emphasizes the reporting, analysis, and prevention of medical error that often leads to adverse healthcare events Case: Subjective: a 35 year old married female comes to the clinic to review her thyroid function tests and CBC that were ordered as part of her routine annual periodic health check-up.
The patient is a 67 year old female with Known poorly managed type 2 diabetes. She also has chronic hypertension and is on chronic medication. The patient also has recurrent urinary tract infections. This case should provide a better understanding of how these conditions coexist and what their effects are as well as how management of these conditions should be approached which will help advance our knowledge in the pre-hospital setting. It may provide important information on how these conditions overlap and interlink with each other.
The patient was discharged after 24 hours, to be followed up for the next 2 months at the first, second, and fourth weeks, then at the end of the second month. Statistical analysis Data were analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS version 16). Values are shown as mean ± SD, range, percentage, and number. Statistical analysis was performed with the use of the Mann-Whitney test and Wilcoxon Signed Ranks test for the VAS and morphine consumption changed from the baseline. Statistical significance was assigned as P value less than 0.05.
The more traditional framework that would have been used would have been the scientific biomedical framework. This framework is a model that does not take into consideration the psychological and social factors which may be contributing to a person’s illness; the illness is simply seen in biological terms. This ideology is far outdated, and one can see this simply by reading the WHO’s most recent definition of health, mentioned in the opening of this paper. This model views medications as the resolution to all illnesses, however we know that in today’s society, medications can often cause further problems- for example the creation of superbugs such as MRSA in the hospital system, bugs that as a result of overexposure to antibiotics have now become immune to the medication’s effects, and can therefore be detrimental to a patient’s health. By choosing to concentrate merely on biological impacts on health, a vast array of other factors, such as the environment, the money invested in public health care systems and many more, are ignored.
The aim of this speech is not to make (skolverket) include diabetes in the biology to teach students what type of cells that are producing insulin. What I would like to see in the future is simply more awareness and attention addressed to diabetes. So that people suffering from it don’t need to constantly answer to all these questions, so that we diabetics can feel safer knowing that there are people out there that knows what to do when we are incapable of taking care of ourselves and so that we hopefully can prevent further complications and decrease the amount of people being diseased of diabetes. And in a few years see a growth in the fundraising for diabetes so that we can finally put an end to all the pain coming from this
