A person may be sick socially or spiritually and manifest it physically; but the person may not know how to complain the illness. It may be difficult to explain. This is why it is necessary for nurses to be sensitive and most of the time should be effective in all areas of care. Significance- Social and Spiritual Assessment It is necessary to help clients overcome their psychosocial and spiritual problem because it may be the cause of the problem that brought them to the hospital. Helping to identify and find solution to it will bring quick recovery and early discharge from hospital.
While both authors discuss parenting, they differ in the way they praise their child, the ways they punish their child, and the manner they speak to the child. Firstly, while both authors discuss parenting, they differ in the way they praise their child. In the article “Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior” Amy Chua says that “When Chinese parents understand is that nothing is fun until you’re good at it” (1). On the other hand, in the article “Mother Inferior” Hanna Rosin says that “I wanted them to be coddled and never to experience hardship” (2). Chua’s way of praising her child is not to praise because it expected to be exceptional in their education.
They have different attitudes towards bruises and wounds. Some nurses do not like to write up an incident for bruises unless they are significant in measurement. One of the nurses, KR, voiced that it is a hassle to write up bruises and sometimes she would not write it up especially when her shift gets busy (Personal communication, March 1, 2018). ANA’s Code of Ethics (2015) has stated that “the nurse has authority, accountability, and responsibility for nursing practice…takes action consistent with the obligation to promote health and to provide optimal care” (p. 15). The nurse’s decision not to follow through with the resident’s skin issue is a failure when our ultimate goal is to provide optimal care.
Likewise in healthcare, oncoming staff generally does initiate not patient care delivery until a hand off process occurs. “Communication failures are increasingly being implicated as important latent factors influencing patient safety in hospitals.”(Sutcliffe, 2004, p. 187) Parker (1996) reports, “the nurses handing over had direct knowledge of the patient and were able to convey idiosyncratic and personal knowledge of the patient. This is a crucial element in professional nursing practice. The nurse can report on clinical judgments and can be held accountable for the judgments made” (Parker, 1996, p. 25) Critical evaluation of nursing actions can be evaluated and considered to be either continued or discontinued based on the rationales for the action and the patient outcome. In 2005, the Australian Council for Safety and Quality in Healthcare published a literature review of clinical handover and patient safety.
Not only do the professionals have to decide on the immediate needs of their patients but also on their future. Ethics has increasingly become a required component of clinical practice. According to Ulrich et al. (2013), many healthcare professionals suffer from stress-related disorders which originate in job duties like protection of patients’ rights, respect to autonomy, informed consent for treatment, and staffing patterns which are impacted by the increasing demand for clear ethical standards in their decision making process. It is therefore imperative for organizations to develop standardized policies and guidelines for education in ethics to help their staff members to carry out
So historically, nursing is not a money-making profession but a profession that takes care of the nation, society, and individuals in terms of their health needs. It is essential in the society so that in collaboration with other medical fields in medicine, the best healthcare is provided to the people (Tingen et al., 2013). Beliefs and Values Patients believe that they can be helped through by nurses and they at the same time believe that the nurses are only supposed to provide them with the basic services and serve their needs. This is not the case in that nursing encompasses more than these basic services to the patients (Adams, 2016). My believe about patient families and significant others; they look up to us as a healthcare team together with the doctors to bring life back to their love ones.
“As new nurses graduate from school and enter the health care industry they encounter many barriers that distract them from caring for their patients” (Johnstone & Mohsen, 2013). With limited experience they are ill equipped to prevent ethical distress when confronted with ethical dilemmas. “They need ethical knowledge to conduct their appropriate function to manage situations and to give safe and proper legal and ethical care in today 's changing world” (Mohammadi, 2013). Ethics and Nursing Ethics Ethics is simply defined as “the study of good conduct, character and motives, it is also concerned with determining what is good or valuable for all people” (Bouchal & Ecker, 2014). It involves choices and judgements about what to do or what not to do.
Meruyert Madikenova Communication in caring for terminally ill patients Communication plays an important role in establishment of good relationships between the healthcare provider and patients. Good communication affects patient satisfaction, patient compliance and patient health outcomes. It is the one of the essential attributes of healthcare providers, and mastering in effective communication is necessary skill to provide quality patient care. (McCorry and Mason, 2011) The most asked question for terminally ill patients is “How long I will live?”, and answer gives them time to make decisions about end-of-life care. Therefore, healthcare providers should be able to respond properly to help patients address their concerns and promote shared
they didn’t attend to him properly. Ashely dad, David was expecting the nurses to do personal care towards Ashely but sadly the nurses were also expecting David to do personal care towards Ashely. When a patient is ill in hospital and they are depending on the care professional to look after them, this is called a fundamental importance to them also towards the patient’s families because they will also be cared for with kindness and compassion by whoever meets with them. This makes realize that there was dehumanized care, such as the word Dislocation means when a person does not know where there where about is, for example even though the nurses greeted Ashely when he arrived but they didn’t inform him where he was and what happens to him. Patients are normally, confused when they are in an unfamiliar situation and their life has been changed.
It is insufficient to only understand the patient but the nurse must also deliver messages in an understandable and acceptable way 14. A few element of effective communication for the nurse include; effective communication through listening, giving patient feedbacks on their concerns and communicating to other staff members on patients concerns and conditions. It is also important to be honest in communication. The nurse should never tell patient they are going to do something for them if they do not intend to, and if they cannot follow through they should explain to the patient why. Secondly, it has been documented that as much as 80% of our communication is non-verbal.
