Beneficence is the core principle that refers to the act of ‘doing good’ and advocating for the patient. All nurses should take positive actions to help their patients and to have the desire to do good. On the other hand, nonmaleficence is the core of the nursing ethics and it revolves around the idea that nurses have to remain competent in their field as to avoid causing injury or harm to patients. Nonmaleficence also requires all health care professionals to report any suspected abuse. The last ethical principle is justice.
This can delay the baby’s physical and learning development, its ability to communicate with others, and with the ability to care for itself. ii. The baby can also have behavior problems, ADHD, Autism, Neurological disorders, hearing loss, and several other disabilities. 3. Fortunately, with the thanks to the development of technology there are several cases to where the premature baby turns out to be completely health.
Prideaux (2011) states that good quality record keeping is directly linked with good nursing care, while poor quality of documentation connected to poor patient care. Good standards of record keeping will improve the patient care. Record keeping has legal importance. Hence all the records should be accurate and up to date. Moreover, it should be legible and should be in chronological order.
The principles address the issue of fairness, honesty, and respect for fellow human beings. • Autonomy: People have the right to control what happens to their bodies. This principle simply means that an informed, capable adult patient can refuse or accept treatments, drugs, and surgeries according to their demands. People have the right to control what happens to their bodies because they are free and balanced. And these decisions must be respected by everyone, even if those decisions aren’t in the best interest of the patient.
Dignity is a complex concept but is a central nursing value. Nursing care should be delivered in a way that respects the uniqueness and dignity of each patient regardless of their culture or religion. Dignity can be defined as “Patient dignity is feeling valued and comfortable psychologically with one’s physical presentation and behaviour, level of control over the situation, and the behaviour of other people in the environment” (Baillie , 2007). A patient’s experience in a hospital environment can depend on whether their dignity is promoted or threatened. Dignity can be violated, that is why it demands respect but also at the same time protection.
The Peaceful End of Life theory is paramount as the authors stated that every individual deserved to die in a peaceful manner with dignity. The theory is empirical based which is applicable to nursing practice in caring for dying patients, assessing interventions, maximizing care, promote dignity and enhancing end of life to be peaceful. According to Moore and Ruland, a good life is simply defined as getting what one wants (Alligood, 2014, p. 702). The approach of given patients what they want or their preference is a practical approach to the end of life care. This theory stands out to me because it fit into my patient’s diagnosis and I believe everyone deserves to die with dignity and peacefully.
Advising the patient that they may feel “cold or even slight stinging sensation” at injection site as normal, tends to provide the patient assurance and comfort. Initial Setup: Put on a new set of clean gloves Confirm all filters and settings are ready in “FA” mode Excuse yourself with your patient as you step out to grab their
Babies have REM sleep and not deeper non-REM sleep, meaning they wake up easily, besides they have not adapted to the night day system and so tend to sleep more during the day and active at night. As a mother, you have to make sure that the baby has a quiet sleep for good health by creating a good, clean and quiet environment. Behavior Babies cannot talk but still in case of any discomfort or need for attention, they will communicate. They show different behavior to express how they feel. For the first one month, the most common is crying, it could be out of irritation because of the wet diaper or hunger.
This extra barrier of protection is important because cleaning with soap and water is insufficient and will only remove visible dirt and only partial germs. One of the important duties of the vet nurse/ assistants is to keep a high level of hygiene within the surgery; you should always follow a clean to dirty rule when cleaning and clean/tidy up as you go. All sinks should be cleaned thoroughly each morning and clean cloths/towels provided, Floors of the consulting rooms and waiting room should be thoroughly swept and mopped before and after each surgery to minimise infections, examination tables should be sprayed with an anti-bacterial solution between patients, Kennels should be cleaned and sprayed with disinfectants after every patient, bedding should be shaken free of dust and hair before washing at the highest temperature in the washing machine in order to destroy any harmful pathogens, Items that have be heavily contaminated should be discarded. Nurses/assistants are also responsible for cleaning medical kits and drapes, these not only need to be cleaned thoroughly to remove any blood and tissue debris but also require to be sterilised using an Autoclave, this is the most common method of sterilizing kits ( Autoclaving is the process used to destroy all micro-organisms and infectious bio waste. Autoclaving promotes
In regards to written communication, it is essential that the health professional is clear and concise while using relevant and simple language for the patient. In conclusion, this synthesis has explored the vitalness of therapeutic communication in improving patient-centred care. Through being more aware of one's self, using positive verbal/non-verbal language, active listening, showing empathy and building a trusting and respectful relationship, a nurse is able to create a healing therapeutic environment for the patient, leading to positive experiences and outcomes for each party
Through the learning from week 1 and week 2, I have learnt that the most frequent adverse event in health-care delivery is health care-associated infections. It is essential for us to follow the infection control practices that both patients and us are at a risk of being infected. Standard Precautions involve the use of safe work practices and protective barriers, for example, the use of personal protective equipment(PPE). At first, I think Standard Precautions are very easy. Everyone knows PPE can protect us from infections and hand hygiene is important throughout the process.
• If you were given a bandage (dressing), you should change it at least once a day or as directed by your health care provider. You should also change it if it becomes wet or dirty. • Keep the wound completely dry for the first 24 hours or as directed by your health care provider. You may then shower. However, make sure that the wound is not soaked in water until the sutures have been removed.
One in 150 women and one in 450 men have the FXS premutation and risk giving it to their child (Skomorowsky). A baby inherits FXS if the chromosome they receive from the parent carries the premutation. Since everyone has two sex chromosomes, even if the one of the parents carries the premutation, their is only a 50% risk of transfer to the baby (Carvajal & Aldridge 24). Boys are more likely to be born with Fragile X Syndrome because they have one X chromosome and one Y chromosome, while a girl has two X chromosomes, so the syndrome doesn’t affect them as badly. However, the premutation gene is more common in girls than boys (Skomorowsky).
Teratogens are substances that are considered potentially detrimental towards a fetus and its development, which can cause issues after a baby is born. Examples of these are viruses, alcohol, stress, malnourishment, drug abuse, and much more. The issue as to whether a woman should be held responsible and given legal consequences towards their child’s abnormalities due to their chosen exposure to teratogens is somewhat complicated. The development of a child is a very fragile process, with about 50% of embryos unable to implant to the mother’s uterus, 20% of embryos spontaneously aborting, and only 31% of all zygotes being able to live and become babies (Berger,2014). Out of these limited births, 100,000-375,000 infants are born that were exposed
A. Speech therapies and social skill training can allow individuals with Autism to manage the degree the effects of Autism has on them. 1. Teaching young toddlers basic skills like attention and perception can also help diminish the extent to which autism effects an individual because the brain is most subject to change before the age of four. 2.
