When you are younger and someone asks you what you want to do when you are older you usually get all awkward and don 't know what to say. But it was different for me, I always had a feeling that I wanted to do nursing. I wasn 't sure what type or where or how I would get there but I just had a feeling that 's what I wanted to do when I was older. I have always been so interested in medicine and the "gross stuff" like my friends bleeding and me having to be the mom. When my mom had surgery I would change the gauze pads and just be so interested in everything that had to do with medicine.
I had the privilege of working with elderlies at a local Hospital (Kuakini Medical Center) to keep their minds sharp and their bodies feeling strong. Some of the activities involve but are not limited to singing, exercises, card and board games, dances etc. Although, elderlies isn 't the age group I would be working with I was glad to experience working professionally with others in a medical atmosphere. I learned to be patient, understanding and most of all compassionate. After becoming a certified doctor, I plan to move forward and specialize in Pediatrics, the study on the physical, emotional and social health of infants, children, adolescents and young
At this point I thought that a doctor would not only work on treating the physical condition of the patient but would have a big role in bringing joy in spite of their hopeless condition. When my relative was diagnosed with alopecia, the doctors were too busy with other patients to treat her. They were so busy that it was hard for us to get an appointment with them.
I took a cadaver class last year where we reviewed what we had learned from previous anatomy and physiology classes. The professor of that class is a general surgeon at St. Luke’s Hospital, and he showed us how to do certain medical procedures while we got to practice using the cadaver. We dissected the cadaver as well as learned to suture. That class was by far my favorite class I’ve taken since I’ve been in college, and it made me feel very excited for my future working in the medical
The unit I work in has sicker, more unstable patients than those on the medical surgical floor or labor and delivery or post-partum. It is not a joyous time in a person’s life when they are admitted into the Intensive Care Unit and it usually causes panic with the family. It is important to keep the family as up to date as possible to relieve some of the uncertainty they may feel. Talking to the patient’s family also produces a better overall experience for the patient. When the patient is discharged they listen to their family’s recap about the hospital stay and it influences their opinion.
Exceeding Expectations, Building Bridges, and Creating Impact: The Role of A Doctor As A Professional In Today’s World More often than not, people have the impression that being a doctor is plainly about studying intensively and working tirelessly to cure the sick. Most of the time, people view doctors as the ones who do no further than diagnose conditions and treat people. However, I deem that being a doctor encompasses so much more than that. Growing up with my parents who are physicians, I discovered what it truly takes to be a doctor. Being exposed to the field of medicine at an early age, I have observed and somehow gotten to know the fundamental skills and attitude that allows one to excel in the said scene.
Becoming a doctor would be my dream job: it would challenge me intellectually and fully utilise my caring personality. I would love to have a positive impact on other people 's lives and that of their relatives. After seeing my father almost dying in the ICU five years ago where I was worried for his life, I realised at that time not only the daily challenges doctors face practicing medicine, but also saw how doctors can change people 's lives by doing their jobs with compassion and selflessness. My ambition to become a doctor stems largely from this event. Yet the months I spent with my father who suffers from cancer in hospital has had a profound effect on me.
Collaboration with your interdisciplinary team in nursing. Why collaboration is important to provide high quality and safe patient care Nursing in the last 20 years has changed dramatically. Even as a young licensed Practical Nurse I knew that being able to communicate with my fellow interdisciplinary team was going to be highly important. Not only for the care of the patients and their families, but to also gather the needed information to stay up to date on all changes in the facet of the healthcare industry. From my experience, you get most of your updates and need to know information from other nursing employees and through word of mouth.
These errors are most of the time blamed on other healthcare professionals other than the doctor. Doctors should be accountable and responsible, especially if the doctor is not following protocols provided to him or her. With increase in medical errors, doctors should be more accountable, not only to not put blame on others, but to prevent future medical errors in patients. According to Pauline’s article “ the surgeons skills” it has been known for 30 years : not all
Cancer has always encaptured my attention. I always thought, even since I was little, that I was going to be a doctor when I’m older and find a cure. A lot of people close to me have been diagnosed with cancer; therefore, I really wanted to get in a field dealing with cancer so I could learn more about it. I just, at the moment, really do not want to do anything surgical and cut people open. That’s why I am glad that there are different kinds of pathologists.
