Therefore, this research study will contribute effectively in the literature related to the stress level
Perhaps, there might even be unreported cases of tragedies caused by medical errors. People are expecting to be cared for once they are in the hospital, and becoming a victim of medical error or medical malpractice is the least that people would expect from health care professionals. Among the different departments of a health care facility, it is the Emergency Room that patients turn to for assessment, diagnosis and treatment. For this reason, it is necessary for health care professionals to provide excellent service to ER patients by putting the patients’ safety and wellness as a priority. In order to reduce errors in the Emergency Room, health care professionals must employ strategies that would target aspects of the Emergency Department where errors are most likely to occur.
in the World Views on Evidence-Based Nursing journal. The article begins by addressing the fact that families, together with the healthcare professionals were particularly implicated when it comes to the process of decision-making of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)’s patients, especially about the use of life support. The use of life support by ICU’s patients can be, regarding the decision to withhold or withdraw life support at the end-of-life of the patients. Shared Decision Making (SDM) approach was suggested as the best practice guidelines to improve the quality of end-of-life decision-making. The focus of the article is to explore the effectiveness of SDM interventions to improve communication between the healthcare team, patients, their family members and surrogate decision-makers about the decision to use life support in the
Clients with mental health issues will almost always need a strong sense stability and support when working towards recovery. As social workers, it is important for us to work from a lens of the recovery model while doing case management. The recovery model, encourages clients to be actively involved in the development of their treatment plans and to help apply hope and self-determination to the client (Regehr, Glancy, 2009). This is often a different approach than is taken in medical settings. Often, it is reported that clients do not have much say in their course of treatment while they admitted to the hospital.
That’s why I feel that legal actions should not be taken at the moment. Fidelity is a core principle in nursing or any other healthcare institution. It involves balancing of so many activities to ensure that the patients are treated in the right way. It takes promising a patient that you would see him or her and in your tight schedule you create time to see the patient. Balancing the so many activities is not easy according to Macciocchi (2009).
Creating an Environment That Values Teamwork Teamwork is a vital component of healthcare. It ensures that patient safety is maintained through effective communication. It is similar to fitting together the different pieces of a puzzle, in order to create a holistic picture. Specialized care plans necessitate the cooperation of various professionals to ensure positive patient outcomes. Increased complexity in healthcare delivery also makes it impossible for a sole healthcare specialist to fulfill all the needs of the patient.
FACILITATED SENSEMAKING When a loved one is admitted to an ICU especially in critical health status, patient family members usually experienced anxiety, fear, depression, uncertainty and nervousness, traumatic experiences (post-traumatic stress). This needed support among the healthcare members especially nurses who assume the role of patient advocate. Family need to have a better understanding of the situation and what they should do to promote the feeling of comfort, security, serenity and to adapt to their new role as caregiver, thus preventing adverse psychological outcomes. Most ICU patients cannot make a decision for their own medical treatment, in such way family may be required to make a difficult decision on behalf of the patient, and these scenario builds up the pressure on the family and heightens their emotional needs and they may not able to recognise their own needs. For this reason, the family 's well-being may be affected if their needs are not fulfilled.
Management and leadership theories have frequently been applied with success in healthcare environments. However, healthcare organizations, and specifically hospitals, are different from many businesses in that they provide a societal service that has not been traditionally identified as a business. Cook (1983) developed and tested a theory of hospital response to a regulatory environment. According to this theory, as regulatory activities related to hospitals increase, there will be a managerial level response which will include decentralization and increased participation in decision-making and more budgeting and controlling activities among middle managers. A technical level response was also predicted related to changes in patient care scheduling and services, changes in nurse staffing, development of new services to fit the market, and changes in clinical practices, many of which would affect or involve professional nurses, and thus, nursing administrators as well.
