Imprisonment for women can be very difficult for one to cope with due to all the negative and unhealthy attributes that come along with it. The health of women prisoners is the poor; the evident inequalities pose both a challenge and an opportunity for the health systems. Characteristics of prison populations and the disproportionate prevalence of health problems in prison should make prison health a matter of public health importance. More importantly, women prisoners constitute a minority within all prison systems and their special health needs are frequently neglected. The current provision of health care for imprisoned women fails to meet their needs and is, in too many cases, far short of what is required by human rights.
Sometimes in critical situations, it is impossible for a neonatal nurse to keep parents involved. When a nurse can tell that the parent is experiencing a crisis and are in complete panic, the nurse can ethically withhold information to prevent the parent from worsening their emotional state. As said in a quote, “Given the vulnerable position they are in I don’t think they are receptive, and it wouldn’t be proper either, to introduce them to worst case scenarios” (Strandas and Fredriksen, 905). It can be extremely hard for a nurse to step back and put themselves in the position of the parent, “It was pretty tough. And quite unsettling ... Because it’s easy to understand their anxiety.
I have personally dealt with dementia, and know how hard it can be for the patient and their family. I believe there are always areas for improvement, for me I have a hard time just rushing through and getting things done. The patient is confused, scared, and agitated I feel we are just adding to by changing her catheter when she did not want it done. My nurse stated we need to hurry and get this done we have another patient at such and such time. I agree we are on a time constraint but, at the same time we are agitating V.B.
A professor of mine, who started her career at an oncology unit, had to quit due to the overwhelming sense of grief and loss. Although one could argue she is too young and unprepared to cope to the emotionally taxing job, I believe that the absence of help contributed to her emotional burnout. The organization has to provide education, counselling and allow nurses to grieve. Some nurses preferred informal peer support (cite) but the organization should also cater for nurses that would like to have a group counselling. As well as developing a culture that is more open to the reporting of occupational and emotional fatigue so that nurses do not have to suffer in silence and receive the help that they need.
Medical care provided by health personnel also found to be associated with traumatic childbirth. Inadequate information about delivery, less interaction with the medical staff, and inadequate care during delivery were predictors of traumatic childbirth (Creedy, et al.2000; Soet, et al. 2003; O’Donovan, et al. 2014; Simpson & Catling, 2015). Allen 1998 reported that women felt harmed when they received inadequate care and the staff was not present around the time of delivery which led women to loss control and perceiving childbirth as traumatic event.
Technology is a self-perpetuating as well as a seductive force that requires specialist care by those who use it. For example, the configuration of the devices that are directly linked to the patient may be risky to the nurses especially if the technology is advanced. Consequently, the entire critical care team requires frequent training and capacity building. Some devices which are introduced may not be efficient enough to provide patient safety. This puts the nurses at the risk of mishandling the patients, if the new devices fail to
After graduation I sought out and secured a job in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) at Grady. After I felt comfortable with my skills set and experience, I transferred to the Rapid Response Team within Grady in 2010. In August 2013, a new twenty bed OBSERVATION UNIT -Clinical Decision Unit (CDU) was opened with in the emergency room. After visiting this area, I noticed the nurse practitioners solely in control of the area. I witnessed Nurse Practitioners (NP) managing patients with congestive heart failures, (CHF), Diabetes, chest pain, asthma, and many more acute illnesses.
Background: While being admitted to the ICU Sue encounters a nurse named Bruce who is going through protocol and unexpectedly in a cold manner puts a tube down her throat to show her what to expect in the months to come. Sue is in an emotional/ venerable state unaware of her condition or how severe it really is. Technique: Giving advice Rationale: The nurse is following protocol and admitting the patient, while diminishing an unconformable procedure the nurse is educating the patient on what is to be expected while she is in the ICU, but could benefit from compassionately placed advice. His approach to giving advice in a cold manner is not the best method but did get the point
There was one patient in particular that made me question my judgement several times. This lady was in a Broda chair and looked as if she was ready to hit the floor at any moment. She was constantly scooting her butt to the edge, bending over to the floor, and clearly very anxious. The staff that worked at Ridgewood did not seem too concerned about her falling, but every time I looked at this patient, it looked as if she was about to go down. This made me question myself because I did not know if someone should be watching this patient constantly or if it was okay to walk away and help other patients.

Michelle: The worst parts of my job are the aggressive patients, when the patients treat the hospital like it is a hotel, and the patients who do it to themselves and aren 't willing to change. It is hard to be compassionate to those patients. The best part is when you see a patient go from not being able to walk, talk and eat to being able to do all of that and more. Brieanna: What advice would you give to a new nurse? Michelle: Start on a med surg floor so that you get every experience possible before you switch to something specific.
