However, I am aware that the beginning of effective leadership would be by developing a vision of the organization where a nurse leader serves. Coming up with a picture of what would be a future of excellence in delivering nursing care in the organization would be crucial in motivating and raising commitment among the other nurses. As a nurse leader, the vision that I would hold dear would be to ensure I have the capacity to make sure that the systems in place benefit individual needs of the patients in a manner that patients are always handled with respect and dignity while the work that nurses perform is respected and valued. For this to be met, there is a need for the nurse leader to assist the other nurses grasp the envisioned picture and remaining at the forefront in directing the others on where to go. Subsequently, I would want to be the kind of a nurse leader who can enable the staff to grasp the vision, to make sure the appropriate people assume the nursing roles and to model the behaviors that are desired of the other
It is of utmost importance for the care of patients to be prioritized but nurses have been taking to many hits from many different variables. And these have deterred with the patient 's overall care. The care of the patients have been decreasing over the years due to aspects. These aspects are caused by hospitals themselves which are not taking care of the nurses. These nurses experience illnesses themselves and guidelines and precautions are not takes.
The conceptual system includes the personal, interpersonal, and social systems. These three components are all in constant interaction with one another. One must understand those concepts to grasp King’s Theory of Goal Attainment. Nurse’s jobs are based on patient centered care as well as helping those patients reach their goals. As the nurse-patient relationship evolves, patient involvement is very important in order to set realistic and achievable goals.
Evolving Practice of Nursing and Patient Care Delivery Models In response to the need for health care enhancement and quality of care deliverance, the health care system is evolving and changing. The aim of this paper is to discuss the subsequent concepts influencing the future of nursing: Accountable Care Organization (ACO), continuity or continuum of care, nurse-managed health clinics and medical homes. Continuity or Continuum of Care Continuum of care enables a flawless change of patient care from an acute setting into the fitting discharge site, such as nursing homes, own homes, community centers, rehabilitation centers, group homes. These services help patients transitioning from one degree of care to another level (Naylor, Aiken, Kurtzman,
PATIENT FACTOR: - Some reason for ineffective staffing result due to some patient factor such as the patient type i.e. the diagnosis of the patient, the age of the patient or the sex of the patient. It could be due to the complexity of care been rendered to the patient e.g. semi-conscious patient or a deeply unconscious patient will be demanding more care than a patient who is fully conscious. The duration a patient spends in the hospital also have a major role in affecting effective staffing in allocating staff in the ward, the head nurse have to check the type of patient in the ward.
Moore (2009) also emphasizes that nurses must confide to the knowledge of their expertise at each institution of higher education, and assists to devise protocols and policies and being able to take charge of the professional attribute in the hospital. As a nurse, we must adhere that nursing is a profession that we have to act professionally, and obligation to our profession ahead. There are many vital issues that need to be addressed, and decisions to be made on the particular issues so as to strengthen and advance the nursing profession. The common vital issue that we are facing in the hospital is the increasing rate of absenteeism and attrition. Background For instance, the recent issues that my ward is facing currently are high absenteeism rate.
Conflict can arise from a variety of means, within someone, between two people, or a group of people (Disch, 2017). However, if conflict is unresolved, it can breakdown communication, decrease team performance, create a toxic work environment, and ultimately decrease patient’s quality of care (Disch, 2017; Johansen, 2012). A common, yet ineffective resolution to conflict in healthcare is avoidance. This is most commonly seen between a physician and a nurse, when the nurse hesitates to question a physician, as he/she holds the “authority” (Disch, 2017). Although, if the conflict is not properly addressed, the avoidance behavior will create added stress on the nurse and potentially place the patient(s) at harm (Johansen, 2012).
There is evidence that ‘at risk’ patients are not always identified; and even when warning signs are identified, they are not always acted on in a timely manner (Thompson et al., 2008). After that blue Code run on that patient, unfortunately the patient died, that time I feel very guilty and upset. That incident realized me not only patient is suffer, but novice nurse also affected and remains mentally depressed while working in intensive care
This process allows the nurse to identify the source of distress and to attempt to provide the help needed. The concepts of this theory include function of professional nursing, presenting behavior of the patient, immediate reaction, nursing process discipline as well as improvement (Petiprin, 2016). One of the roles of a nurse is to meet the immediate needs of the patient. Patients typically present to a facility with a requirement that should be identified and met by the nurse. The nurse should be able to identify the problematic situation from the patient to be able to address the need for help.
It is evident that the adequate patient care in the hospitals is based on the availability of nurses having appropriate set of skills. However, the researchers found this aspect a challenging task for hospitals’ management as there as a paucity of trained nursing staff in India. The study also reflected that the unplanned demands of leaves from nurses require the hospitals to consider significant administrative adjustments as well as substitution. It can compromise the patient care as well as the sharing of work by the available staff leading to the increase in absenteeism and workload. Belita, et al (2013) reflects that there is a lower level of health workers in sub Saharan countries because of the inappropriate health results of the population.
