The purpose was to evaluate how intentional rounding affects patient outcomes. The review was completed in 2014. Some limitations where discussed they were throughout the research material. The conclusion was that patient outcomes were positive with intentional rounding and they were based off the results from the study. The study did state that they were not sure if intentional rounding was the cause of improved patient outcome or relationships that formed with the nurse and patient.
Lack of monitoring and keeping track of patients’ medication use is a main cause when a patient is given inappropriate drugs. When the nurse fails to communicate successfully with patients, it costs. It costs in unnecessary pain, in avoidable deaths, in poor health outcomes and in the prolongation of
When I began to prepare and administer medication to my resident, it wasn 't much of a new experience. The one new thing I was taught about was the important six rights of medication administration. I had to research every single medication for the purpose and side effects of the drugs, as well possible nursing assessments that I would have to do before and after giving it to the resident. Making sure that I knew how the drug would affect my resident, as well as know how to administrate it, was extremely
In the contemporary biographical novel, the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Rebecca Skloot used logical opinions to argue about the importance of consent to reveal the lack of morality from those in the medical field which continues to persist today. Scientists and doctors made great discoveries with the HeLa cells of Henrietta Lacks. The family of Henrietta Lacks had to live with the aftermath of decisions made by doctors and
in ABFT participants. Although they apply different psychotherapies, both researchers endorse therapy for treating MDD. By promoting psychotherapy and excluding medication from their treatment approaches, they stimulate patient independence. Despite the sound research methods applied throughout these experiments, limitations are still apparent. In the research conducted by Cox et al., (2012), there were limitations in their sample.
The Joint Commission determines the highest priority patient safety issues and how best to address them (The Joint Commission, 2016). Treatment issues and errors have been a focus of the Joint Commission however the errors in diagnosis leading to inaccurate treatments have not been of serious concern to be placed on the dockets (Berenson et al., 2014). The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine and the Institute of Medicine are examining this problem. It is currently made up of mostly physicians and other healthcare professionals. As the current trend continues with Nurse Practitioners practicing at the primary and acute care levels, it is imperative that nurse practitioners should definitely be a large part of the committee by the IOM through their Health Care Quality Initiative (Berenson et al.,
Kinesiology’s present its result in the methods section rather than the results section. However, the data from the nursing’s paper are located within the results itself. This choice of location could be because it wanted the results to guide the reader what the tables provide. Meehan, the author of the nurse piece, states that the table 1 “provide the foundation for how nurses think about themselves…” In conclusion, nursing’s and kinesiology’s format is different when considering kinesiology lack of emphases of their results. However, the two clearly portrays their work as an experiment when the nursing paper ending with how “further research is needed regarding the methods.” Kinesiology even implied the need for such when they discussed the faults in their hypothesis.
I came to this conclusion through my shadowing experiences with a perfusionist at a nearby hospital. I was taking medical physiology at the time of my first shadowing, and it was cool to see some relations. But I realized that he knew so much more than me, and he started talking about the base excess levels and how that related to the pH level in the blood stream. Though the second time reassured my drive to pursue perfusion as a career, I was still very curious to learn more of the problem solving process that occurs during the operating room. I realize that how important to build on that knowledge base and to even go beyond what is required to learn new things that might help in case of an unforeseen
They found that communication failure was a latent cause, which influenced patient safety in the hospital and is a large contributor to adverse clinical outcomes. Ineffective communication can also lead to the patient 's misunderstanding of instructions because of inadequate question-and answer opportunity. Communication is an important part of quality nursing care and predominantly influences patient and resident satisfaction; it is a core element of nursing care, a fundamentally required nursing skill (Fleischer et al., 2009). The nurse plays an important role in coordinating care for the client by integrating the management and delivery of treatment, encouraging health promotion and improving quality of service being provided by taking into consideration the client, client 's family and other health care workers. Nurses can communicate well with patients when they use a patient centered approach, which supports the active involvement of patients and their families.
Failure of timely visit to a physician to start patient's nutrition and monitor the problems and complications of nutrition are examples that can lead to problems and non-observation of the adequate standard of patient feeding care by the nurse. The most important barriers to enteral nutrition by intensive care nurses in the study of Cahill et al. (2012) were as follows: higher importance of nursing care than nutrition, lack of adequate equipment, lack of adequate gavage solution, difficulty in access to small intestine catheter in patients who do not tolerate feeding, lack of expert or nutritionist in the department (especially on holidays), physician’s delay in starting a patient's nutrition and prescribing gastrointestinal drugs, and the nutritionist's delay in visiting the patient
