I did my clinical observation at Skyline Hospital in White Salmon, Washington. I am currently a receptionist at Skyline, which made it easy for me to find a hospital that was willing to let me shadow their radiology department. I was lucky that I had worked with the techs in the radiology department before. Having that familiarity made me much more comfortable shadowing and asking questions. I took this job at Skyline specifically to learn more about a hospital environment and how hospitals run.
Alice is a very polite and professional candidate. All though a lot of administrative experience has been in healthcare, she is interested in branching out of the healthcare environment. She most recently completed a temporary assignment for Allied Health Group as an Administrative Office Assistant.

Bedside handoff is one of the ways we are involving the patient more. Maxson, P. M., Derby, K. M., Wrobleski, D. M., & Foss, D. M. (2012) (P.141) “stated the Joint Commission said in their National Patient Safety Goals for 2009 and 2010 that they wanted patients to be more involved with their care as well as Nursing to have a standard hand off process when there is a change of care”. Bedside handoff covers both initiatives laid out by Joint Commission. Bedside handoff will allow the patient to meet the oncoming nurse and the patient will be involved with his/her care (Maxon et al., 2012). Patients have also felt more at ease with this process with being able to hear what the plan was for their care and are able ask questions about their care
The project is dedicated to two case studies, the first within the Middleheim hospital in urban center that investigates the consultation and surgery unit of the hospital, the second within the catheterization facility of the university hospital of Gasthuisberg. The employment of integrated care pathways eases the event of the simulation models as a result of the trail of the patient is already well documented and comparatively easy to derive and to integrate during a simulation model. Collaborative action of these methods during a simulation model guarantees that the model replicates the behaviour of the clinic. Investigation on the model shows the results of the difference within the bed capability to bed usage. During this explicit study unused bed capability is freed owing to the findings of the simulation model (Cardoen and Demeulemeester,
She was selected as a Fellowship of American Academy of Nursing (FAAN). In summary, her journal explains two research studies she completed with the provided funds at her disposal. The first study incorporated King’s concept of time. Although nurses think it is more time consuming to use the bar code to scan patient’s bracelet before giving medication, it has improved the level of patient safety. Messmer’s current research study shows that communication between all members of the health care team, regardless of their position, attribute to the success of benefiting the most important person, the patient.
Clinical Audit Assignment. Introduction. There are many benefits in carrying out a clinical audit. It allows nurses to evaluate the care they are giving, encourages them to keep better records, focuses on the care given rather than the care giver themselves and achieves a feasible quality of nursing care (Harmer and Collinson 2005).
Patient Communication Student’s Name Institution Patient Communication Nurse-patient communication is significant towards the well-being of the patient and adequate performance of the nursing duties. Different patients come with different attitudes, and therefore it is necessary for the nurse to understand how to communicate appropriately with the sick individuals. This essay seeks to identify the different types of nurse-patient communication, factors that promote its positive or negative experience and recommend strategies on how such communication can be improved.
When I have to visit the hospital my first thought is not what type of degree the nurse holds, but am I able to trust this nurse with my life or the life of my families members. How much experience does this nurse have? Will this nurse be competent enough to provide me with the best possible care?. As an American, I enjoy making my own choices and having the ability to make decisions regarding my education that is reflective of my own personal preference. With that being said, it is crucial to stay up-to-date with the most current studies and research pertaining to the medical field, and nursing.
The real-world business situation that I will be addressing by collecting and analyzing a set of data is that of a Hospital, specifically that of the hospital staff and the patient safety interaction. I have chosen this specific business as it is my hope to utilize this degree to become a director at a local hospital. In Hospital’s there are so many aspects that one needs to look at. These aspects can be broken down into individual pieces of data that can be analyzed and provide a clear outlook of change.
It’s agreed that Shivonne was a key player in the transitioning of Infusion Clinic to Outpatient hospital. The transition was not an easy task – but Shivonne managed through professionally.

Code Sepsis Intervention Practicum has been a great opportunity for me to connect and integrate all the knowledge I have acquired through out this program into a more effectively clinical practice. The way I came to realize this was during one of my shifts where I was exposed to a difficult situation but thanks to my skills I was able to proceed in a safety manner. The purpose of this journal entry is to describe how my intervention made a difference in the client outcome and a brief explanation of the competencies and skills used. During a morning shift with my preceptor, we were sent to float to a med surge floor.
She mentions that medical students are taught to note the appearance of patients and she discusses the apparel of physicians in the days of yore, which were very uniform compared to the 21st century. The appearance of a physician gives the patient a sense of what kind of personality to expect, in my opinion. According to “Professionalism in Health
