Sometimes health simulators cause trainees to feel too safe in the hospital environment and when they are put in the real world, with real life crises, they are frozen because they have no clue what to do. On the other hand they do give the trainees a kind of self confidence that can only be gained through self accomplishment, which helps them more calm and seemingly professional in the real world. Whether or not health simulators are positive or negative is really an idea for you to gnaw on, maybe if you had more knowledge you could decipher the facts for yourself, and draw your own
Nurses need to make sure that they aren 't there just to collect their paycheck, but to caring their patient. Appearance is what other people look patient might judge, the nurse by their appearance. When it comes to nursing, a nurse 's appearance encourages assurance in the patient. For example, a nurse who walks into patient 's room with ungroomed hair and wrinkled and untidy scrubs, a nurse would lose trust and respect from a patient. In addition, if the nurses look careless on their appearances, their coworker, patients, and their families will see the patient as sluggishness and
As in working facilities they can be in a healthcare clinic, healthcare provider, hospitably or nursing homes, it all depends on type of career you would like to do (“Nurse Practitioners” 36). Most of this job is newborns may have some defects when they are born, and it’s their job to maintain them so they can cure them as much as they can (“Pediatrician” 6). Some infants need guidance, so they won’t have a much difficult time once they develop the proper age (“Pediatricians” 6). A pediatrician can also prevent and treat the people’s behavioral and social problems (“Pediatrician” 6). Pediatricians can do that, but some prefer to work in other places and practice solo which is their own choice and that will lead to painful stress (“Pediatrician” 7).
Many people think that psychology and nursing are different that psychology is not needed in the nursing field but psychology has a lot to do with nursing. Nursing is primarily assisting the patient of activities contributing to health or its recovery that they would perform unaided if they had the necessary strength, will or knowledge. Psychology is the study of behavior and mental processes. What do these two have in common, well they many things in common and couple differences. Psychology can be used to help nurses to understand the patient, and understand how they are feeling and also as a nurse, you can be able to understand the patient physically, emotionally, etc… Psychology plays a major role in nursing.
Education in stress recognition and reduction techniques is helpful. Generally, nurses do not get time for exercise, which is a matter of concern because exercise is necessary to keep oneself physically fit especially in case of nurses, whose most of the time is spent in static position. The hospital management should encourage them for daily physical exercise. Exercise may include rotating exercise for neck, hands, feet and waist
So, that appropriate plan of care can developed among the health care team to ensure positive outcome for this episode of care. For example, if this health crisis is related to mental health disorder that resulted in physical health emergency then case manager would need to talk and include the mental health provider and medical doctor as part of the health care planning team. The case manager would need to know all past mental health breaks or if this new mental health issue for the client. This may sound trivial but many times not all providers are included in planning process for patient, when all participates not included can lead to adverse outcome. This could result in malpractice or lack of care standards on the part of the case manager.
The “No Pass Zone” means that if a nurse, nurse assistant, or health care staff see a call light going off they cannot ignore it and must see what the patient needs. However, if the care staff is unable to fulfill this request on their own they must alert the appropriate staff. The impact this goal had on patient outcomes was that it improved patient satisfaction and was even showing a reduction in patient falls. Often, most patients calls are for beeping IV pumps or needing to use the restroom. In addition, patient satisfaction surveys are another example of quality improvement.
Talking to real life physical therapy patients that have been diagnosed with depression, they feel as the “old” way of just sitting in a clinic and going on different machines is least effective. They rather have more physical activity. If there were more “physical” in physical therapy the treatment would be more beneficial towards the patients. The injuries would heal faster, the quality of life would improve, and the patients would be less prone to coming back for the same treatment for the same injury. The way we treat physical therapy patients with mental illness needs to be changed.
The world of pediatric nursing is something that is not fully appreciated until you get a first-hand look inside what it is really like to care for sick children who sometimes, unfortunately, do not always make it. Take oncology pediatric nurses for example. Their job is to care for and treat children with various forms of cancer, and besides the obvious, they also play a pivotal role in “optimizing the end of their patients’ life.” (Hildebrandt, p602) These individuals witness death on a day to day basis and they are trained to help a patients’ family deal with these losses, but they are on their own when it comes to how it affects them and how they are supposed to properly handle the situation. Many hospitals tell their nurses and doctors to simply not gain attachments to their patients, but that is something that is easier said than done. When someone is around a child every day, trying to help make them as comfortable in a hospital setting as possible, making sure they are happy despite what their health may be, it is difficult to not form some sort of bond.
A physical assessment of a patient is completed much like a head to toe assessment, the hospital staff is tasked with treating or medicating the patient to control the physical symptoms. Yet not much is provided to a patient on a mental or social health standard. We as professionals are taught to treat the physical issues but we aren’t provided with enough tools to dig deeper with a patient and explore their mental and social health. Similar is Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs, Jean Watson believes Hierarchy of needs begins with lower-order biophysical needs, which include the need for food and fluid, elimination, and ventilation. Next are the lower-order psychophysical needs, which include the need for activity, inactivity, and sexuality.
According to the student supervision chart we reviewed in class, PTA services are reimbursable in a variety of different settings. Reimbursement is a way for the patient to be sure they are getting the proper treatment they need. This means that the insurance company will give the patient a refund as long as the services are given correctly. Some settings PTA services are reimbursable include skilled nursing facilities, hospital facilities and outpatient rehab agencies. Though PTA students are allowed to provide their services in these settings, they cannot work with patients without direct supervision by a licensed physical therapist.
Disadvantages however are you have to pay close attention to detail, you are working at a face pace declined rapidly and the jobs are being taken by technicians. A pharmacist aide is very important to many people. You may not think so now, but next time you are in pain, just think of who helps you out with your medicine. You’ll think they are super important
That will encourage and motivate others to work as a team and help each other. Identify the barriers of change, which might be the staff nurses who are skeptical of change. They may have a lack of confidence in their ability to adapt to new technologies, or may perceive the change as a threat. Some nurses have adopted a short cut process of administering medication to save time, which is pre-pouring medications. Workaround is another big barrier which occurs when nurses pass the medication without scanning the medication and the patient’s identification (ID) band, to save time and scan them later.
