Everyone knows to heed to ambulances speeding through a red light, but how many people know how to actually save a life? What to do when someone is choking? When to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation or even how to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation? Working as an Emergency Medical Technician is a very tolling job and often the negatives are not clearly apparent to people who look into the life of an EMT. This job brings a wealth of knowledge, ideas and know-how, yet it also brings a massive amount of downsides that often go untold and unheard. Although being an EMT has many perks, the underlying and untold realities are the reason being an EMT is not a career worth getting into. Overall, the often overly-romanticized job is not what it seems and
Moreover, I strive to always keep in mind that there are human beings with unique and personal backgrounds, and not just overwhelmed the emergency room, constantly ridden by staffing shortage and filled with patients carrying their medical ailments. Often, a sincere smile, eye contact, active listening and therapeutic silence could be sufficient tools to improve patient comfort and self-esteem. On the other hand, teamwork and collaboration are essential for to maintain healthy work
A healthcare administrator must use good judgment. They must be able to adjust their behavior to each situation, but must understand that conflicts will occur between different expectations in the code of ethics. Other expected behavior for a healthcare administrator is that one shouldn 't misrepresent one’s qualifications and shouldn’t misrepresent facts when communicating with other professionals during business activities. Overall, one’s behavior must set them apart from the others and their actions must show that they believe in a code of ethics and are a true representative of this profession (Bianca, 2017).
Finally, it will explain the importance of ethics in communication and how patient safety is influenced by good or bad team communication. The first method of communication is mutual respect. The patient and clinician have a partnership based on trust. The patient has respect for the clinician 's experience and the clinician has respect for the patient 's wishes, needs, concerns and builds on past experience to meet immediate needs. (Paget, 2011).
An emergency room physician performs medical tests on patients in order to diagnose conditions. Some of the duties an emergency room physician performs include writing prescriptions, performing complicated medical treatments and triage (evaluating patients' conditions to see who needs help the most). Skills that are vital to being an emergency room physician include having good communication, analytical, organizational, and problem-solving abilities. To become an emergency room physician you must go to medical school and complete an emergency medicine residency program lasting three or more years. Some pros to being an emergency room physician include having a flexible schedule, building teamwork and relationships, and having fair compensation.
However, I feel that the extreme degree to which this competency is being held, i.e. having to remake a patient’s coffee three times because it wasn’t the proper milk-sugar ratio certainly takes away from the more important aspects of life saving. I always greet my patients with a smile; I always treat them like I would treat my family member, and I always ask “Is there anything else I can do for you?” before I leave the room. And this is not too much to ask, it is simply treating humans with integrity. But the “have it your way” hospital experience expectancies sometimes make our jobs harder than they already are.

Integrity can be defined as being honest and having strong morals. Being able to balance one’s own integrity and professional responsibility is what determines how successful they will be. If someone’s personal integrity and professional responsibility aren’t balanced, they will interfere with or hinder the other. Ultimately, a person is successful if they can balance their personal integrity and professional responsibility.
An emergency room physician assistant practice and perform medicine on a team with other physician assistants under the surveillance of an emergency room physician in the emergency department. They are dependent to examine patients, analyze injuries and diseases, and provide treatment to patients in the emergency department. In the emergency department, physician assistants would face and treat life-threatening injuries or non-threatening situations. Even though they work under the supervision of an emergency room physician, they perform the same tasks as the emergency room physician. They also work full time in the emergency room.
Nursing At 21 and with only one year of medical assisting experience. I figure it was an okay job. After all, I was getting paid more than minimum wage. Initially going into a trade school for fast pace and expensive learning that is what I wanted more money in little time requirement.
3.2 Outline the procedures to be followed if an accident or sudden illness should occur. The procedure to follow in the event of an accident would be that I would record all of the details about the incident & report/relay them to the ward manager who will then go on to notify other people. In the event of someone having a cardiac arrest, if I was the first person on the scene I would activate my alarm to make sure there are more staff available to help. 3.3 Explain why it is important for emergency first aid tasks only to be carried out by qualified first aiders.
