• Victims may be afraid of getting the caregiver/abuser in trouble. • Victims may be unable to explain what happened because of the nature of their disability. What Makes Reporting Difficult for Caregivers? Taking the step to actually file a report can be difficult for many reasons: • Caregivers may be shocked, angered or embarrassed by what they hear or see. • Caregivers may be hearing information that is very contrary to their own personal standards.
Through lack of discipline or lack of support, patients often don’t carry out the recommended practice sessions efficiently or not regularly, which can lead to an inevitable loss of rehabilitation success and consequently costly aftercare and unplanned readmission to the hospital . Thus, for rehabilitation after acute diseases, such as joint replacements, movement tracking (e.g. by counting steps) is a first easy way to monitor patient behaviour in the home rehabilitation process. More advanced methods involve the use of 3D sensors for movement analysis during exercises, for example. For patients with chronic diseases, which account for the biggest part of readmissions to the hospital, the monitoring of simple values can heavily support the pre-emptive detection of patient deterioration.
However, there are many critics among the scientific community on the quality of some approaches. The lack of research on the best assessment approach, and the data collection method are some of the problems related to the assessment. A lack of research on the best practices to conduct a community health needs assessment remains one of the issues in public health (Becker, 2015). As a result, the health needs assessment approach differs from one nonprofit hospital to another.
If the proper care was given early on the mass size potentially could have been prevented. This patient was not treated with the ethical respectany patient should receive when seeking help/treatment. It is very alarming that a physician whose job is to take care of other humans would disregard giving a proper
The absence of cultural competence often yields an uncomfortable situation for both the healthcare team and the patient in need (REF). Indeed, the potential for medical errors is greater when a lack of cultural competence exists. If the health care providers are unable to understand the patient, the delivery of care can be inconsistent,
When patient 's health data are shared or linked without the patients ' knowledge, autonomy is jeopardized. The patient may conceal information due to lack of confidence in the security of the system having their data. As a consequence, their treatment may be compromised. There is the risk of revelation of thousands of patients ' health data through mistakes or theft. Leaders, health personnel and policy makers should discuss the ethical implications of EHRs and formulate policies in this regard.
This was conducted on an adult inpatient medical-surgical unit. The reason for conducting this study was could be limiting the overall effectiveness. This study identified barriers in the areas of workload issues, burdensome rounding logs, missing staff buy-in, patient acuity levels, lack of adequate staff education, and a lack of sustainability. All of these barriers are directly related to the staff caring out the hourly rounds, except the patient acuity level; meaning that if staff can be thoroughly educated on the correct process of hourly rounding, many of these barriers would be eliminated. This study identified that future studies are needed to address these barriers specifically to see if there would be an improvement in hourly rounding effectiveness, but this study recommends that it would be.
The evidence presented in this study also suggests that there are many reasons which prevent individuals with learning disabilities accessing effective health care. Further organisational barriers were presented which may impede effective communication between patients and staff. It may be that the need for written forms of communication or the use of poor signage caused issues for these individuals as reduced literacy skills may make it difficult to comprehend these types of communication. Rigid appointment systems may be a barrier to accessing health care if the patient is unable to tell the time or manage their time effectively. Tuffrey goes on to suggest that it is essential that staff have the appropriate attitude and knowledge to treat vulnerable patients and reasonable adjustments need to be made to address some of the barriers preventing this.
When healthcare professionals provide prescriptions to family members this can be seen an unethical in regard to this principle. Because these practitioners do not typically provide the proper paper work after prescribing family members a medication, this can be seen as inappropriate. The principles of equality and need play into this situation. It is unequal treatment when it comes to differentiating the patient from the family member when prescribing treatment. The practitioner may give the family member a higher maintenance remedy that has a higher effectiveness than the remedies typically given in order to assure a recovery.
The nurse not only needs to speak clearly to the patient but also have attentive listening skills. Sometimes if you are so focused on an end result you stop listening as well and therefore miss a great deal from the patient. A solution for this could be to slow down and work in small steps. There needs to be more and better patient education. Another barrier to quality improvement is a lack of leadership and training.
