If everyone is wearing the same clothes then no one should get bullied from their clothes. Just imagine waking up and not stressing and taking an hour to get dressed. I will admit I wake up in the morning and worry about what to wear and what people will think of my outfit. It makes me very self conscious when getting
Healthcare professionals should have a clear understanding from the beginning of their jobs to provide care that is catered to their patient’s needs and does no harm to their patient, yet some caretakers tend to walk the fine line between what is ethical and what is convenient. In Carolyn Buppert’s article, “Can I Prescribe for My Elderly Father?”, Buppert describes a situation involving nurse practitioners prescribing medications to family members for different reasons; nevertheless, this is a violation of the principle of justice because it is against the law to provide medications to family members without proper medical documentation (citation). Not only do ethical situations arise within the professional standpoint but also most workers who do not have day to day contact with patients do not realize that they must also provide care that follows the four principles. For instance, a chef that prepares the meals for the patients may not realize that the principle of nonmaleficence affects them, but if they were to prepare a meal that consists of nuts for a patient who has a known nut allergy, then they would be causing harm to the patient. Although the chef may not have been aware of the allergy, it is still could affect the treatment given to the patient if he or she has a reaction to the food.
Communicating over the phone first, I could tell that they were excited and more than happy to assist us in completing this assignment. The funeral director that we met with told us that she had a similar assignment when she took a death, dying, and bereavement course. One of the first things I noticed while waiting in silence was the calming music that played over the speakers. The music was subtle and fit the mood of what people likely feel when at the funeral home. I expected there to be a funeral service going on, so I was surprised that other than employees, we were the only ones there.
Language is incredibly important, in my perspective. To me if one speaks my language, I am more likely to trust them and give my attention compared to those talking in a language I am unfamiliar with or do not understand. Also, when an interpreter is not available during the workday, the patient(s) should have the right to have someone speak to them in their native tongue if it is not English. I think it would be most impactful if the translation was through their own doctor, nurse or other provider, rather than a person such as a translator that speaks over the phone, because the provider is the most familiar with their case and ask the questions in a better way. From personal experience, using a translator phone with the translator not in the same room to communicate with patients and their families, it is difficult and involves repeating yourself and causes frustration throughout visit for the patient as they want help, justly, but it is a longer process.
Students’ education should not be sacrifice in order to support bad tenured teachers. Our kids deserve to have the very best teachers they can in the classroom, their future depends on it. In my conclusion, I think we need to have some form of tenure system because we don’t want teachers to be fired for political purposes and retaliation. Teachers should not have to worry what they say in the classroom they’ll be fired because of the principal doesn’t believe in their political point of view or because they disagreed with the principal. However, we don’t even need to have teacher who are poor performer to retain their job for life.
Bartleby supposedly worked from early morning to late at night, with no pause. All seemed to be going well for both employee and employer, until one day when asked to examine a paper, Bartleby replied that he, “would prefer not to” (page 155). The Lawyer was astonished; most likely because of the sudden change in behavior that his once diligent worker was exhibiting. Much time passed, and each attempt to get Bartleby to do his job was met with the same statement that he would prefer not to. The character of Bartleby is unlike any other in the story.
Nurses only work up to 4 patients, this made me happy because of the time they have for each of their patients. Another thing that surprised me was, even when Takisha had 3 patients, she was always walking around bring things to the patients or having to chart the vital signs. Something in which I didn’t know was before the nurses go into the patient's room, they all meet in one room and the nurse in charge begins with a brief explanation on what is happening to the patients on that floor. I had the wrong idea of nurses only needing to look online to know all the details of the patient. I don’t believe Nursing is a right choice for me to pursue in, I feel as if I may like working there in the beginning, However, at the end I will somehow get tired of it and want to try something new.
Professionalism is the core value of any healthcare profession. According to the article written by McSherry, “Excellence in nursing care will only happen by ensuring that nurse managers, leaders and educators are able to respond to the complexity of reform and change by leading, managing, enabling, empowering, encouraging and resourcing staff to be innovative and entrepreneurial in practice” (Mc Sherry, Pearce, Grimwood, & McSherry, 2012, p. 7). McSherry’s article expressed the public’s deleterious views of nursing and the lack of empathy. Basis for these views stemmed from undesirable standards of patient care as a direct result of under staffing. The public unfortunately see’s negative before positive, therefore, exemplification of professionalism
Throughout my experience, I have also learned that patients are not necessarily telling us the truth about themselves and no one gets into a mental health clinic by accident. The knowledge and experience will defiantly influence my future practice because I am planning to be working as a nurse. I am not sure what kind a job I am going to be offered, but if it turns out to be mental clinic I am very confident to take the job. In any medical field, the chances to be working with a patient who has a mental illness are very
Now, the meaning of professionalism has once again changed; probably back to its unique notion of hard work, trustworthiness and social awareness. Among professionals, the study of behaviors and attitudes has become an important factor in this era. The series of improvements during the previous century saw these individuals as having the largest influence either in safeguarding or breaking down the supports of various
