A messy handwriting may occur if the nurses write the notes too quickly in order to save time or too many workloads on the same time. Messy handwriting can lead to misinterpretation of information and cause poor nursing care. For members of the health care team, trying to read the messy handwriting report can be a nuisance, sometimes requiring the assistance of colleagues to interpret it. Once the clients’ information is recorded, the nurses may ask other colleagues if they can easily read the handwriting. Besides, some of the health care providers also fail to read pertinent health or medication information accurately when poor handwriting is concerned.
Effective symptom control is quiet difficult without effective communication. Almost invariably communication in-between patient and the physician is the central part of the therapy. Bad news are the information that may have a harmful effect on patient’s life at present or in the future. Breaking bad news is a frequent and difficult task for every physician, independent of her or his specialty. It is particularly common in the oncological setting that life-threatening and life-limiting diagnoses are frequently given to the patients, such as newly diagnosed cancer or unwantedprogresses of anexisting cancer.
The workloads of emergency nurses and intensive care nurses differ significantly but both types of nurses are predisposed to develop burnout syndrome. Among intensive care nurses, 61-67% had symptoms of emotional exhaustion; depersonalization towards patients was reported by 44-49% of intensive care nurses, and low personal accomplishment among intensive care nurses was 50-62%. Emergency care nurses are exposed hostility of patients including verbal and physical abuse towards staff, lack of experience, and outside of the work place my experience a lack of social or financial support increased exposure to any
In this aspect the group of nurses seems to be the most affected, since it was this group of clinicians that emphasizes problems related to the cognitive capacity even in normal operation, which seems to have more impact after considerable amout of continuous working hours. Regarding the clinicians allocated to the emergency service, problems related to adaptability and flexibility of the user interface were identified. The majority of participants answered that it is difficult, in the context of emergency services, the rapid access to the clinical history of the patients, which they considered a fundamental requirement. Since a variety of usability factors (e.g. poor interaction efficiency or presentation of ineffective information) and non-usability factors (e.g.
Hospitals, which are considered the “gold standard” for delivery of acute medical care, do not always provide the ideal care environment for all types of patients. Iatrogenic events such as nosocomial infections, pressure sores, falls, and delirium are common among patients receiving inpatient treatment. In addition, there have been several cases of occurrence of new functional impairment during hospital stay. Moreover, suboptimal transitions in care are also noted at the time of hospital discharge, which ironically contribute to re-admission to hospital. Not to mention that hospital care is usually very expensive!
As stated in the website WebMD, risks could include anaesthetic reaction, bleeding, stroke, clotting of blood and herniated disk. Another failure of having surgery for pain is that it does not have a proven success rate. Surgery is not always effective as there is a possibility that the pain experience had a different cause. According to Gordon Waddell, director of an orthopaedic surgical clinic, “back surgery has been accused of leaving more tragic human wreckage in its wake than any other operation in history" (Cleveland Clinic, 2013). Thus, surgery for treating of either back or neck pain is not a good option as it has many faults while there are better alternatives
There is a high rate of substance abuse in healthcare workers because they can easily access drugs, or controlled substances. Due to the excessive use of these drugs, healthcare workers feel depression, inconsistency, emotionalism, absenteeism, and violence in their behavior which can cause risk of accidents and reduce their power of functioning and productivity. The case study declared that healthcare workers have poor health and depression issues because most of them do not able to handle multiple tasks and long working hours which caused depression and health issues and at the great extent that some of them prefer to switch the job or even some workers commit suicide. Musculoskeletal injuries are mostly found in healthcare workers especially in nurses because they weighing patients and help patients to move from bed to chair and toilet, and sometimes give bathe to their patients which cause low back pain in their
This particular obstacle is important to improve because it causes patients medical issues to escalate to the point where it becomes deadly and it costs the hospital more money when the patient is admitted with severe and complicated conditions to treat such as a heart attack. The second obstacle of little to no access to a health care professional is important for the US healthcare system to improve because it causes patients with non-severe conditions to go to the emergency room because they have nowhere else to seek medical advice. Allowing easy access to informed medical professionals can cause less people to go to the hospital for colds or similar issues that can be treated elsewhere. If this issue is resolved it could save a drastic amount of money in the healthcare system that could be spent elsewhere. The third obstacle which is lack of preventative care causes patients conditions to escalate unnecessarily.
The nurses often experience different types of disputes in their line of duty, one major one being interpersonal conflicts. When conflicts exist in the healthcare setting, it can negatively affect the professional relationships which in turn tamper with patient care due to lack of communication (Cherry, & Jacob, 2016). Interpersonal conflict among nurses is one of the major
Also, there are some patients that pretend injuries in hope to get paid. Big Data with the ability to have access in a huge amount of data, it can detect inconsistencies in submitted claims. In addition, using its premium algorithms, Big Data can filter thousands of reports to find errors faster than any human team could. On the other hand, there are some disadvantages of Big Data. The biggest disadvantage of Big Data is the lack of privacy, specifically on trusted medical records.
