According, to the research, many refuges suffer from PTSD and other mental disorders. Because of the lack of knowledge surrounding the older population and PTSD, symptoms of trauma may be misdiagnosed as other medical problems. This is an issue because it effects the treatment and wellbeing of the person. A common triggering symptom for both PTSD and getting older is the feeling that you lost control. Being placed in a nursing home will make that feeling worse because the person could be losing their freedom, house, social life, and many other things.
Warren and Creech-Tart (2008) discussed that fatigue experienced by health care provider is one of the contributor factors to deficiencies in documentation. Since some health care providers work long hours and have demanding client assignments, they may not have clear thinking processes required during the process of documentation. Illegible writing is one of the most common complaints in written documentation as a result of messy handwriting (Rodríguez-Vera, Marín, Sánchez, Borrachero, & Pujol, 2002). A messy handwriting may occur if the nurses write the notes too quickly in order to save time or too many workloads on the same time. Messy handwriting can lead to misinterpretation of information and cause poor nursing care.
Meth does a lot of damage to your body, for example a destructive lifestyle, poor hygiene, sugary food and drinks, and lack of sleep. How meth can give you a destructive lifestyle is it starts with an “up” and is followed by an unpleasant “down” which can be avoided by taking more of the drug. The longer the “up” is maintained, the worse the “down” feels, and the harder the addict will go to take the drug just so they can keep their high. Meth gives you poor hygiene because it will eventually give you periodontal disease and you will start to develop plaque on your teeth and gum line. Now how sugary foods and drinks damages your body is once you have so much plaque built up it will soon cause tooth decay because of the amount of acid those sugary food and drinks have in them.
Healthcare environment can also predispose to bullying in nurses due to the scarcity of resources, restructuring, work stress, high patient turnover rate and patient acuity levels (Rodwell & Demir, 2012, p. 15-16). Personality traits having the pathological narcissistic characteristics with a desire to dominate may factor into bullying. Sometimes, a cyclic victim-perpetrator behaviour from past experience comes into play (Pincus et al., 2009). Lacking interpersonal skills where a staff may lack ability to cooperate with others (Croft & Cash, 2016). Position in the power hierarchy A lower position in the power hierarchy in health care may predispose nurses to increasing aggression among themselves.
Alarm fatigue is “a sensory overload when clinicians are exposed to an excessive number of alarms, which can result in desensitization to alarms and missed alarms.” (Sendelbach & Funk, 2013). Alarm fatigue can interfere with the ability of nurses to perform critical care tasks, and it may cause risk of an error or even cross-contamination. Having a false-alarm in a number of cases can be
In addition to human suffering, unsafe health care exacts a heavy economic peal. Definitely, it is estimated that between 5% and 10% of expenditure on health is due to unsafe practices that result in patient harm. Most of this is due to system failures rather than the actions of individuals (WHO, 2013). Perception of quality of care given in the unit within the work environment (Kramer, Schmalenberg & Maguire, 2004). Safety culture is a term often used to describe the way in which safety is managed in the workplace, and often reflects "the attitudes, beliefs, perceptions and values that employees share in relation to safety" (Cox and Cox, 1991).
