HIM professionals constantly try to ensure the patient records are accurate and complete so mistakes can be avoided. As more healthcare settings adopt electronic health records, physicians will have greater access to patient information, which will contribute to better outcome of patient’s
Moreover, Davis (2013) noted that despite home hemodialysis benefiting patients, "With quality teaching principles and good training resources, patients can even make Nephrology nurses’ lives easier because of their increased independence" ( p291-292. 2p). Nurses taking the role of assisting patients on principle bases on their treatment help nurses eventually give the independence of treating themselves without help. Furthermore, not only does this make nurses job easier, but if needed help with hemodialysis less Nephrology nurses are needed. This treatment also benefits the nurses as well as the
doctors came together in hopes of creating a better health care system. The doctors even though understaffed took inspiration of the old way a hospital was run; to save the new generation hospital. It is interesting to see that no matter the circumstances there will always be a group of people such as the doctors in this documentary who are inspired to help make a change for
Philosophy Paper I believe in the philosophy of trying to live leaving the world in a better place and looking for daily opportunities to do so. I value efforts with a ripple effect, in which one action can create many positive responses. These ideas parallel with my philosophy of health education and promotion to help individuals achieve optimal health, specifically related with behavior change and decision- making philosophies. My life philosophy influences my philosophy of health education because they share the same common goal and purpose, which is improvement and betterment. Educating just one single person can create a ripple effect and impact the lives of of many individuals in a positive and healthy way.
The National Health Service Corps works to build healthy communities by providing quality health care to those from underserved populations. I find that this mission aligns well with my beliefs, values, and skill sets. I am dedicated to contributing to this mission because I feel that my purpose in life is to help others by working as a health care provider. I want to work to build healthier communities in our country. As a future clinician, I am dedicated to making an impact by providing primary care services to those from underserved communities with limited access to health care.
There are various methods to adjust health care services into becoming more approachable for low literacy patients. We shall let our society be aware of the problem and accommodate to the needs of low literacy people in our health care facilities. While communicating we must talk with sensitivity, allow the patients to speak out their opinions, respect their values, goals, and beliefs, and act with acceptance. Often times, while connecting with our patients can have the ability to heal them, but others times it can hurt the patient. We must not make any assumptions about the patients, we overestimate people’s reading levels because we are not in their position and we do not think about how something so “easy” to us can be such a challenge for others.
A living will, also known as advance directives, states which life-saving measures the signor does and does not want; can specify that he or she wants such treatment to stop if doctors determine that there is no hope of recovery (Cheeseman). Without a living will in place your family members and doctors have to play the guessing game when it comes to the type of treatment one wish to have if they are seriously ill and becomes unable to communicate or make those types of decisions for themselves. Although a living will lets healthcare professionals and family members know who should be informed or involved in treatment decisions (Haas), they may not benefit from new medical treatment if they are
I came into this program knowing that I can create and maintain positive interpersonal relationships, but what I need to improve was learning to make wise career choices, minimize those bad experiences, and grow from the challenging ones (Buchbinder & Thompson, 2010). Specially, I become emotionally attached to people and situations, which doesn’t allow for me to make the best decision for the bigger picture. As healthcare managers, we can help people one at a time, or thousands at a time, because we work through something that is larger than us (Buchbinder & Thompson, 2010). I focus on how I can make the situation better for one person instead of making sure that the solution would assist a person and many more. One of the tools that will assist with improving my business skills would be requesting a mentor in a health care manager’s position or like business.
Access to health services is important because it improves effectiveness, by achieving health equity and increasing the quality of a healthy life for everyone. When individuals have access to care, they have the right to receive individualized, considerate, and respectable care for in a safe setting. For example, care should be delivered to patients in a manner and setting intended to preserve one’s personal dignity. Quality care should also be provided to individuals without discrimination of one’s race, color, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, national origin, family status, etc. and also without discrimination to sources of payments.
