However , Nursing clinical rounds lead nurses to interact with patients, respond to their interest , and adjust the unsatisfying conditions. regular nursing rounds provide an opportunity to recognize patient needs by progress nursing procedures.

This paper will cover the painful sickle cell crises and day to day pain management finally the attitude of nurses towards their patients. Painful sickle cell crisis is the commonest. It also commonly known as the value-occlusive phenomenon. According to Bradshaw, H., & Woolridge, D. (2008). Sickle cell crisis.
Day-4 clinical experience, I was scheduled to stay in the surgery/OR department to watch some procedure. The surgery/OR department is completely different than Med-Surg department. Nurses who work in the OR department seems very busy and fast when they do the patient assessment on the arrival to the department. In this department, the number-one priority nursing care I have seen was patient safety and requires teamwork and interprofessional collaboration. Because surgery is invasive and involves exposure to various anesthetic agents and drugs, and other environmental hazards, complications are common.
Problem Identification Getting out of bed is one of the dangerous things that the elderly patients do when they are admitted in the hospital. Study conducted by Ambrose, Paul & Hausdorff, (2013) on patient falls reveals that a majority of falls in the elderly patients occur between 0700 and 1900, especially when they are getting out of bed to use the rest room. The cause of their falls is mainly due to unsteady gait, memory loss, confusion that comes with age. Memory loss and vision problems which occurs during old age in the elderly patients puts them at risk for falls. Other factors that can lead to falls are; Presence of throw rugs, psychotropic medications, lack of Vitamin D, and weakness of the lower extremities.
Assessment is a fundamental component of any nurse’s role. However, from what I observed today it seems particularly vital to the PACU nurse. While they do provide interventions, the majority of PACU nurses’ time is spent assessing their patients and documenting their findings. Patients in the PACU have undergone the significant stressor of surgery under general anesthesia and they have the potential for very serious complications. It is up to the PACU nurse to observe if the patient is declining and act quickly and appropriately.
(Fact sheet: heart and disease). Stress is difficult to measure, but we all know what it feels like and how we cope in stressful situations. (Fact sheet: heart and disease, 2005). Stress is a naturally occurring phenomenon in the life of a nurse. As a nurse, we work with people that are hurt or in pain which results in stress for the patient and also may lead to stress for the nurse.
There is a lot of technical and clinical information that the one will need as a nurse: critical thinking and communication skills, patient assessment skills, understanding disease management protocols and development of care plans (just to name a few), most of which is only obtainable through college or technical school and on the job experience. Respect for the patient, the patient’s support system, as well as, respect for yourself is another essential trait necessary to be a successful registered nurse. If patients are sick or worrying about what might be wrong with them, they are going to understandably be anxious or upset (and probably both). Part of practicing compassion as a nurse is recognizing situations like this – and so many more – and striving to help patients maintain their dignity through it all. This requires honest and straightforward communication.
Doctors, Hospitals, out-patient/ in-patient centers and even schools rely heavily on their nursing staff. A deficiency that prevents an industry from properly staffing, recruiting or maintaining certified nurses can have tremendous consequences. These effects can have
This will enable patients to talk about health issues including emotional, social, mental problems that disturb them. In healthcare, certain factors affect good nurse-patient communication which are time, language, environment, shortage of nursing staff, assumptions etc. These factors lead to error in medication, misdiagnosis and even death. So, the need for good nurse-patient communication should be emphasized in nursing practice. 3.3 Application in current job I really do know and understand the benefits of a good nurse-patient communication.
The ER team consists of nurses, physicians, medical and radiology technicians and more, working in unison to stabilize the patient who makes an unplanned visit to the ER for urgent health care. Emergency rooms are filled with high technology equipment to treat the wide variety of disease. The department is rarely quite as they provide primary and quick care to patients. Emergency doctors should exhibit attributes of professionalism in the hospitals where their practice is based including altruism, accountability, duty, honor, and

Providing care for hospitalized patients can be both stressful and demanding. Nurses often find themselves overwhelmed with the number of tasks they are expected to complete. Due to the large amount of patient care tasks, many nurses forget to implement orders or educate patients on important prophylactic treatments. All hospitalized patients are at an increased risk of developing a venous thromboembolism, no matter the reason for their hospitalization (The American Heart Association, 2017). Venous thromboembolisms pose great risks and are a substantial source of morbidity and mortality to hospitalized patients.
Critical issues: Due to the high number of patients that social workers are responsible for, they are met with tight deadlines to avoid discharge delays. They also have to face difficult cases involving patients with multiple psychosocial issues. Reference Marrow, Nancy.
Being an experienced nurse at the bedside in critical care unit it is my responsibility to ensure that high acuity and critically ill veteran’s and their families receive optimal care. My experience helps me to practice in settings where patients require complex assessment, high intensity therapies and interventions and continuous nursing vigilance. Critical illness can have huge impact on patient’s life both physically and emotionally. Fear, isolation and loss of control. Taking care of the patient who were conscious during the mechanical ventilation.
