Yvonne is a business professional who suffers from cervicitis, the inflammation of the cervix, and cervical neoplasia, the abnormal growth of squamous cells on the surface on the cervix. After conducting several tests, including a cervical biopsy, little was revealed as to the cause of Yvonne’s condition. The next test performed was a cervical cryosurgery, which is when liquid nitrogen is used to destroy abnormal tissue. This procedure was unsuccessful and then the doctor performed a cervical colonization, which is when a piece of tissue in the shape of a cone is removed and then examined under a microscope to check for the presence of cancer cells. While this procedure has a high success rate, it can lead to difficulties with bearing children.
Description: The incidents occurred while carrying out certain intervention on my assigned client in the unit with my clinical instructor. It involves the removal of a foley catheter and an IV.tubing on my patient which was due according to the protocol of the hospital.Although my primary nurses wanted to carry out the procedure with me assisting her,my instructor suggest that I do it while she supervises me since it was my first time. I was quite excited to learn and acquire this new squill that I forgot to prepare adequately for it. Critical reflection: I was upset that I couldn’t recall the name of the equipments needed to carry out the intervention as well as the implications for the patient aochen I was asked to do so by my instructor.
One of the most significant days in my life so far was the day that I got to watch open heart surgery in person. More specifically, a triple coronary artery bypass graft, also known as “CABG”. Not only is this an intricate surgery, but it was being done on an 85 year old woman, which substantially increases the risk of the surgery. I was doing a rotation at the Travis Air Force Base hospital in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), when I overheard someone talking about the surgery planned for the next day. I couldn't believe what I had heard.
I inquired about what she had noticed as she was a nurse. She replied that she had noticed her brother’s memory deficit was the biggest thing at the moment. He was able to dress himself and needed reminders on medications as the home care nurse was filling the medication tray. His gait had improved with PT. I inquired if OT had Mr. Noveloso perform any cooking
Investing my time in the care of my patient gives the opportunity to not only assist them in a difficult situation, but also to learn more about their diagnosis and the treatment, while comparing it to what we have learned in class. For example, I had a patient that suffered from Sickle Cell Disease and came to the ER during a crisis. Correlating this case to the books and the content learned in class, these patients receive at least 1000 mL of fluids, pain medication, and oxygen. Additionally, I had a patient with meningitis. This individual presented with common symptoms such as nuchal rigidity, muscle pain, fever, and chills.
I have used these assessments daily as a rehabilitation/geriatric nurse. These assessments are valuable to use for patients who might have compromise circulatory problems. This includes orthopaedic patients, medical history of PVD and DVT, and non-healing wounds. Peripheral pulses are hard to find in patients who are sick and dehydrated. I use the Doppler to find the pulses in the foot or ankles because they can be difficult sometimes in patients with circulatory problems.
They did not obey some parts of the philosophy of practice for healthcare providers. For the second one that how will pharmacists influence Lia’s healthcare conditions and outcomes, I have my own opinion. From what I learned from pharmaceutical care course and labs so far, nowadays pharmacists pay very important roles in the whole patient-centered healthcare team. Pharmacists are the group of people who directly interact and talk with patients and their family a lot, as a result, they are also the people who can make great impact on patients. Through patient care process, pharmacists connect drug therapy problems and goals of therapy together to make suitable care plans for each individual patient.
Another day at Hamtramck Medical Center learning more about this career each day, but today was a good day. Not a lot of people came pulse my supervisor tough me how to do the throat culture. “It’s very easy all you have to do is clean your hands, and then remove the swab from the packing. Ask the patient politely to open his/her mouth, and then turn his/her face against the light. Guide a swab over the tongue; rub the swab firmly over the back of the throat, both the tonsils and any areas of inflammation.
The pro is that regular mammography can reduce the risk of dying from breast cancer by about 20%. One con about mammography is false positives, which leads to more testing and can include biopsies and another con is the potential risk of over diagnosis. Over diagnosis is caused when some of the tine cancers it finds may not progress or threaten the patient’s life, however, since there is no way to be sure which ones turn will turn dangerous, they are all treated.

I was able to create better therapeutic communication skills, pick up on the patient’s ticks, learn how to assess for triggers, etc. I will use this in the future because I will come in contact with patients who suffer from a mental illness on any floor I work on. They may not as serious as some of the patients I worked with on this clinical rotation, however, it is still important, as a nurse, to recognize and address mental health issues with patients. I also learned just how important self-care for nurses is. It doesn’t take long for nurses to begin to feel burnt out and lose passion in what they do.
She often refferred to a paper with the patients history of problems and she grabbed things they needed for tests for the patients well-being. She was helped by a nurse 's aid. If they needed answers they usually went to the doctors or went back to their patient information for more insight. A typical day for Cindy was woke up, checked on al her patients, took vitals and then prepared them for any tests or surgeries they needed for the day. Some things I thought was cool was the relationship she had with some of her patients.
She needed to find a new doctor because of moving, and after some research she found Dr. Choi. She smiles happily saying “The day I met Dr. Choi Changed my life.” He was the first doctor to go back to the beginning and rerun all new testes for her. “He is the only doctor that never stopped believing in me.” Dr. Choi is a functional doctor and a chiropractor. He started Stephanie on some natural remedies that help repair her stomach. All the years on medications had destroyed her stomach.
