When they take care of patient, they often forgot the practice of preventing harm from patient which influences the practice. Stage2. Feelings As a nurse, it is significant for us to promote safety during the practice. Yet, some of them only focus on the surface quality but not holistic one.
These guide nurses and are very helpful when a nurse has to make important decisions. These values are a must have in any practicing nurse (Creasia &Parker, 2001). In this particular scenario, it is apparent that the nurse does not know what to do because the core values and ethics are not imbedded in her. Nurses need to implement these values into their profession not just know them. If it was up to her she would not resuscitate the patient because of her opinion on drug abuse patients.
Other preventable interruptions defined in the literature are the propensity of nurses to impede each other with discussions without correlation to medication administration while arranging drugs and reply quickly to demands from other staff when interrupted. The research synthesis reinforces the plan that interruptions are an acceptable area of nursing operation and proposes the necessity for culture modification to restrain preventable disruptions, specifically during convoluted or vulnerable to commit errors nursing activities such as medication administrations. The greater number of disseminated clinical quality ingenuity to limit interruptions during med pass are nurse expert quality clinical improvement projects creating or involving implementations of a set techniques to restrain interruptions. The goal of the project is to guide nurses with time to be mindful, attentive, smooth, and unruffled while preparing for medication to
Patients in different healthcare settings are vulnerable due to their conditions and sometimes lack the ability to share their challenges such as poor quality treatment and hospital-associated infections. There are cases when hospitals undermine ethics and ignore their patients’ values and interests. Healthcare professionals therefore have a responsibility to empower their patients with information on important medical decisions. However, some nurses ignore the need to communicate the risk of hospital-associated infections leading to undesirable outcomes. In cases when a hospital records a higher rate of HAI, it is important to inform a patient of the risk.
If following guidance sett throughout the learning process, reflective practice will become a common tool as part of this career in order to promote professionalism. The weaknesses can be transformed into strengths while performing tasks whether if they are new or not is due to reflective practice; thinking back over experience Is allowing individuals to learn from own mistakes or unwise decision as clinical judgement come through practice. By Improving reflection, a nurse is improving her practice, she is gaining more knowledge from every situation in order to be able to apply in the future in the best interest of the patients and to support a safe environment in healthcare system.
In discharge instructions it is important for both the nurse and patient to rate information topics equally important to learn. In the “Patient education needs as reported by CHF patients and their nurses” article studies have found that nurses and patients differ in rating the importance of patient education topics. Generally, studies have found nurses value information about medication more than patients do. Patients and nurses may value different information and that patients may not believe it is realistic to learn all the information while hospitalized.
Even one instance of abandonment can cause a nurse to find it difficult to have the trust of coworkers. They may also find it problematic trying to gain employment with any past of abandonment. From all this research I have learned additional actions that are forms of abandonment that I hadn’t thought of previously. I feel that I am better prepared to not commit any acts of abandonment now that I have gained new knowledge and understanding.
I feel apprehension and noncompliance can be barriers for both strategic planning and the nursing process. Fear of what other staff may think about the change, fear of intimidation from other staff, and fear of one 's ideas being laughed at can be a few of the struggles of any person wanting to evoke change within their organization. In an earlier module, we learned about different leadership styles and approaches. Depending on the change needed within the organization, this outlined which style was needed to best reach this goal. “Attaching metrics to goals and specific initiatives allows nurse leaders and clinicians to monitor progress and determine when a different approach might be needed” (Reid-Ponte, 2016, 112).
When the nurse spread the word that the patient was more difficult to work with, the oncoming nurse was immediately wary of that patient. While not all nurses will take that kind of information to heart, some will. It will impact the quality of care that the patient deserves because the nurse will more likely spend her time with her other patients, than with the difficult patients. His needs may not be fully met because the nurse wanted to avoid any difficult
The society indeed taught me the essentiality attached to respecting others thus serving a source of encouragement, the consideration that I carefully examined before venturing into the nursing profession. It is natural that patients do need not only drugs but also respect for survival. In other words, it is difficult for someone who does not value others to find solace in nursing. For example, nurses are expected to respect the voice of the patients so that there can be a sort of understanding to facilitate better treatments and caregiving. For example, patients come from different religious backgrounds that accommodate certain beliefs as far as the provision of Medicare is
This then leads to poorer health outcomes overall. Nurses must be aware of these potential barriers to health care and work towards minimizing the disparities of health care. Recommendations to physicians may be beneficial if concerns about continuity of care may arise in regards to prescription medications and treatments. Advocating for these patients on a state and federal level for modifiable factors is always
1.What is your comfort level with medication administration? If your agency/patient population includes IV Therapy, what is your comfort level with this skill?
