Doctor Benliro and Class, Thank you for your guidance, I would add 2 or more differential diagnoses. The patient bill of rights indicates that the hospital or facility should provide the patient with the right to participate in active decision making regarding treatment and it includes refusal of treatment. However, the patient needs to be mentally competent to make this decision (Standler, 2012). This means that C.G. understands the implication and consequences on his health by refusing treatment and that the decision is not irrational and would be maintained in the long term.
An anesthesiologist meets with the patient before the surgery to ensure that they understand the procedure and are prepared for it. This requires a friendly personality and hospitality being that you should put the patient at ease. Throughout the surgery, the anesthesiologist will monitor the patient and talk with the patient’s family. This is to describe what will happen and to also put them at ease and comfort. Oral communication is key to comforting and providing information to the patient and their family.
As an MA you should always be respectful and helpful to the patient. There are different ways that you can correct this miscommunication. You could see if there is an open spot the you could fit the patient into.

Even if the patient comes in on the wrong day and is very angry, you should still remain calm and helpful.
Making sure a person is safe should be everyone 's number one priority. Even though people go to therapists because they want someone to talk to who won 't judge them or divulge their secrets, divulging information about harming another person does not fall under that category. I agree that it can be very difficult for a therapist to decide when a patient actually intends on following through with the death threats or if the patient is just trying to vent. However, if he or she is a good therapist, then he or she should know their patient well enough to decide whether they are being serious. Not only that, but when a patient begins therapy, their therapist is required to tell them all the things that if they say, the therapist is required by law to tell the police.
It is very important that this occur because a patient is unable to make that determination and just sending them home to wait for an appointment could be life threatening. If there is a spot available on that day, then the patient should be informed of how long it might take to see the doctor and let the patient decide if it is something they are willing to do or to make a later appointment. Registration of a patient should be private, accurate and speedy. This will cover HIPAA, protect the patient and allow for a reduction in the wait time. Patients should be mailed preregistration packets to fill out and bring with them to the appointments to reduce the event for inaccuracies and
Instead of using restraints our facility provides patient care observers to be with the patient to ensure their safety. Educating the staff on alternatives is essential to reduce the use of restraints such as providing a quiet environment and fall precaution measures. Additionally, care must be individualized and we encourage visits from family and friends. The caregivers must give priority to respect for the dignity of the residents. I agree the family and care giving team must work together in the decision-making process.
To avoid possible legal consequences I will maintain all the paper works in file. Before termination or demotion of an employee I will always discuss the following questions with my superiors.

Taking it “step by step”, making sure they do everything before, during and after the surgery making sure they did not forget something. Doctors should always let their patients have an ample amount of time to ask questions so they also know what they are about to have done to them. Take their time with each and every patient they see. If all healthcare professionals would just do their part in patient interaction, the bad name Hospitals and Doctors get would not be as bad as they do
Volunteering at Union Mission was an inspiration as well as a learning experience. This experience helped me to make my final decision for my career path. Watching the caseworkers during their assessment with a client, enabled me to see their professionalism and how each case worker dealt with each client in the same manner. The caseworkers maintained a controlled atmosphere due to their demeanor and personality. Respect was attained for this profession, in addition, I realized that all situations are going to be different and there are going to be some good days and some bad days.
