Hall noted that a few crutches were crucial to the new standard: the patient must be determined to explore his or her own behavior, and to overcome any problems that become exposed; the nurse must assist the patient to achieve this goal with every action that is performed (Alligood, 2018). The centrality of the actions of the nurse in these scenarios led Hall to believe that the actions of the nurses led to the care of the nurse (at least) equating to the care of the physician. The Three C’s of Nursing and its Integration
• An expert thinker would be able to collaborate much better with other nurses in order to find the best way to treat a patient where as a novice would be much harder to collaborate with due to inexperience and not being able to communicate effectively. 3. Describe the phases in the nursing process, and explain the activities of each phase. • Assessment- during assessment, information about the patient is acquired through examination and questions. In this stage the nurse needs to communicate with the patient in order to gather this data • Diagnosing-
Nursing is a profession which requires frequent dealing with ethical issues. So, nurses have been facing ethical dilemmas in their practice. In the process of doing good and promoting health of the patient, the issue of paternalism is evident in nursing. Paternalism in health care means violating the patient’s right to make the decision to do good or to do no harm to the patient (Burkhardt, Nathaniel, Walton, 2014a, p. 56).
Describe the duties of the professional nurse in this case with Mr. Cole As a nurse we are supposed to have compassion and build a rapport with our patients but we must uphold our ethical principles when it comes to this dilemma. As for analyzing this situation and coming to a decision I would use the nursing process since it provides a helpful mechanism for finding solutions to ethical dilemmas. (Whitehead 2007). I would assess the situation and ask myself about the medical facts, psychosocial facts as well as cultural beliefs, patients’ wishes and what values are in conflict. I would then move on to planning and make sure that everyone is involved during this stage and continue on down the line with the nursing process.
Summary Nurse must have knowledge about on different cultural factors such as language, beliefs, and values. Having an education on all of these will allow competent care. Nurse that don 't understand those factors are challenged while providing care and it also leads to other barriers. However, if they can communicate to the patient well they can advocate for the best possible outcome of the patient 's health. If conflict arises in the patient 's health choices the nurse will be courageous by continuing to advocate for what is ethical and best the the patients.
It is also important for the nurse to use evidence-based research, which this guideline does. Another nursing role would be to educate the patient about these techniques and its benefits. It would also be the responsibility of the nurse to document results in the patient chart. It is important for nurses to follow these things because it is part of the nursing process. The nursing process is important because it provides a framework for patient care and helps develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Critical thinking is necessary in order to think of innovative ways to deal with problematic patients and family members. Nurses must always keep the patient 's best interst in mind while at the same time convincing
Kong, Qin, Zhou, Mou and Gao (2014) support this suggestion and adds that effective communication is a vital component of nursing practice contributing to wise decision-making and effective patient management. A holistic assessment which is culturally sensitive, ensures that healthcare is concordant to a patient’s values and beliefs (Tucker, Roncoroni & Sanchez, 2015). Cultural competence in nursing, requires health professionals to have an understanding of the diversity of cultures among patient groups and in doing so, to provide care which is respectful and culturally-centred (Tucker et al., 2015). Using the reflective model of situation, task, action and response (STAR) below, I was able to recall a clinical experience and review my practice in nursing (Swinburne University,
The overall synopsis gives prompt for the need of utilizing standardized handoff tools as well as negotiation of patient transfer among departments. As nurses, the transfer of information efficiently is the ultimate responsibility to aid in communication for success rather than contribute to its failure. This could potentially be a barrier to improvement if many nurses fail to adopt the initiative. In preparation for a future career in nursing and being first line in patient safety, it is a personal responsibility and goal to implement efficient communication in my own professional practice. With efforts to promote effective communication, success among the transfer of information to eliminate issues will be exemplified through
In summary, I learned how to establish a therapeutic relationship and identify the problems. I learned how to find resources and effective procedures in patient care. Taking care of multiple patients with a variety of illnesses is very difficult. In addition to knowledge and passion of caring, a nurse has to be a team player and a master of prioritizing and
However, this would lead to a report of the research. As a result, a deeper investigation needed to be accomplished to learn about clinical issues surrounding sedation management. According to research by Wøien and Bjørk (2012), nurses do not consistently practice SATs consistently. Their findings suggested there were assessment tools available and nurses reported using both "personal experience and clinical judgment" in their daily routines (p. 133).
