The focus on genuine care and interaction between patient and healthcare worker is the very basis of a healing hospital. The first component of a healing hospital is an environment that promotes healing; this includes comforting hospital aesthetics and promoting and relaxing environment that does not induce stress in the patient. By designing the hospital in a way that promotes comfort it eases the patient 's mind and allows them to fully rest. The second aspect of a healing hospital is the integration of work and technology. Technology is a tool that makes treatment and diagnosis easier on the healthcare workers.
The nurse should participate in the care of baby k .As a nurse, we needs to give a dignified care for the baby and family members. In the nursing code of ethics, Fowler (2015) describe provision 1 as “The nurse in all professional relationship, practice with compassion and respect for the inherent dignity, worth and uniqueness of every individual, unrestricted by considerations of social and economic status, personal attributes, and the nature of health problems.”(P.1)This nurse code of ethics obliged us to give good care with dignity regardless of age or health condition. In the same manner nurse should participate in full in care of baby
Introduction Throughout the twenty-first century, the role of the nurse as a care giver has changed and evolved significantly. Nurses now carry more responsibilities than ever before but one primary goal has remained the same: to provide optimal quality care on the basis of evidence obtained through active research. Research is critical to the nursing profession as a whole, it allows the nurse to advance their knowledge base and skills in order to be the best advocate for the patient (Tingen et al. 2009). The focus of the literature review at hand is: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) in the hospital setting under the themes of hand-hygiene, source isolation and patient education.
The nursing outcome should be aimed at preventing choking and aspiration and the safe passage of food and liquid from the mouth to the stomach. In order to provide the best care the nurse should collaborate with a language and speech therapist who will evaluate the patient and possibly recommend lip, tongue and throat exercises to improve swallowing. The nurse should also consult with a dietician who may recommend foods that are easy to swallow the used of diet appropriate thickeners to prevent the occurrence of choking. Hydration should be monitored closely by documenting intake, output, skin turgor and mucous membranes. During meal time the nurse should be sure that the patients has received their medication as scheduled, so that the patient can swallow.
Hospitals, which are considered the “gold standard” for delivery of acute medical care, do not always provide the ideal care environment for all types of patients. Iatrogenic events such as nosocomial infections, pressure sores, falls, and delirium are common among patients receiving inpatient treatment. In addition, there have been several cases of occurrence of new functional impairment during hospital stay. Moreover, suboptimal transitions in care are also noted at the time of hospital discharge, which ironically contribute to re-admission to hospital. Not to mention that hospital care is usually very expensive!
One situation is whereby the hospital is built on an uneven landscape. A healthy and well-preserved natural environment can help in prevention of global warming. Global warming in general involves everyone. Hospital with high emissions of harmful gas can lead and contribute to global warming. Weather conditions affect the working environment in hospital.
Also, nurses are in the unique position to affect change to improve patient care standards. The nurse creates a safe environment for patients. Universal precautions are designed to prevent the transmission of blood borne pathogens when providing first aid or health care (Centers for disease control and prevention, 2012). Infection control in maternity units should be priorities as a major strategy to reduce the high rate of morbidity and mortality. Operational strategies, guide lines and protocols for infection control based on international standards should be developed and become available to all health care facilities providing maternity care (Edoja et al.,
LAPAROSCOPIC REMOVAL OF A RUBBER CATHETER ERODING INTO THE ILIUM BONE FROM THE PERITONEAL CAVITY FOLLOWING UNSAFE ABORTION Pawar P, Mathews AJ, Chaudhry NK Department of Surgery, Christian medical College & Hospital, Ludhiana. ABSTRACT A majority of unsafe abortions are performed by untrained quacks leading to multiple complications which contribute to significant maternal morbidity and mortality. We report a case of a foreign body eroding through the ileum bone following unsafe abortion after a period of one year. INTRODUCTION A majority of unsafe abortions are performed by untrained birth attendants and quacks leading to complications in a large number of cases. Usually, the complications are catastrophic and life threatening.
b) Quality of child care practices and child nutrition In their study of childcare practices in Ghana, Nti and Lartey (2008:94) indicated that the quality of childcare practices is important for child nutrition. They assess the quality of childcare practices by considering household and personal hygiene practices, child immunization status, child dietary diversity and caregiver responsiveness. Nti and Lartey (2008:98) reported a significant correlation between good caregiver hygiene practices with child nutritional status and morbidity. Hygiene practices included child, mother and environmental cleanliness. They found that children with more active caregivers who were more likely to complete their children’s immunization schedules, encourage the child to eat and offer more food were more likely to have improved child nutritional status than less active caregivers.
