However, regardless of the job description, a registered nurse is ultimately charged with providing professional, quality patient care and serving as a patient advocate” (Buhler-Wilkerson 2017). An RN works with an attending physician, and he/she is responsible for carrying out the physician’s orders for providing patient care. The goal of a registered nurse is to provide safe coordinated care for the patient. This includes overseeing and implementing all aspects of a patient 's care. The registered nurse wants to ensure his/her patient is safe, comfortable, and taken care of while under her supervision.
Again, in December 2015, the clinical nurse with the best scanning rate was recognized. As an added incentive to increase BCMA rates, a five dollar gift care was included in the recognition award. This took place the last week of December 2015 during a staff meeting. A second intervention was implemented in February 2016. All nursing staff with a scanning rate above 90 percent received a positive email from their director reporting their scanning rate and thanking them for doing an awesome job.
Wendy, I agree with you that not only DIKW hierarchy is good for evidence-based practice but most importantly is communicating to our patients. As a nurse, we are not only providing safe care for our patients but educate them through our knowledge and wisdom that we learned from the information through the classes. We communicate with them to prevent further complication or simply help them to maintain good health. DIKW hierarchy definitely is not only for nursing practice but good for our daily lives. Every day we are learning something new either from our practices or simply watching the news.
CMO continues to meet weekly and as needed with division leaders to identify issues and factors that need to be addressed in order to ensure the appropriate operational approaches that should impact clinician as well as client satisfaction and therefore better outcomes. 1. Ongoing in-services for our prescriber staff in the use of our Electronic Health Records (EHR) continue to translate into improvement of the required content in order to justify appropriate billing codings to enhance our collection rates. Chief Medical Officer has personally being reviewing a random number of cases per provider and meeting with them individually to provide feedback and improve their performance. This should also impact obtaining the documentation needed for appropriate coding and improved collections.
I am writing to you in support of Toye Adefioye. Toye Adefioye shadowed me at Daughters of Miriam, a skilled nursing facility in Clifton, New Jersey, from 08/2013 to 06/2014 for over 1500 hours. Toye observed me while I provide therapy to patients of various diagnoses; diagnoses such as general orthopedic, neurological, cardiovascular, wound management, geriatrics, and so on. During this time, He was able to recognize and differentiate facts, and distinguish relevant from irrelevant information. He effectively communicate through verbal, non-verbal, reading, writing and listening in persons and in groups.
Employees are an important part in the success of a company. Lifeline medical has strength in the knowledge and exceptional customer service their employees provide each day (Lifeline Medical, personal communication, August 2015). The company achieves this strength by requiring their new hires to go through extensive training. Through the Professional Medical Education Association, the company 's new hires take classes and exams to gain the knowledge needed to best serve Lifeline Medical 's business customers (Education). Likewise, Lifeline Medical employees maintain their knowledge through classes biannually (Education).
I have informed my mentor about Mrs. A’s concerns and she was given comprehensive information about the support groups and organisations that are there to help her and her family during her admission (NICE, 2011). Besides, providing therapeutic communication to encourage the patient to give consent to the admission is an act of beneficence because it prevents causing harms and improves the patient’s wellbeing (Edwards, 2009). It was a good experience for me since I have learned the importance of communication as one of the fundamental aspects in nursing (Balzer Riley, 2000). I have learned that therapeutic communication works wonders. I was complimented by my mentor who boosted my confidence and encouraged me to continue doing better since provision of reassurance and honest compliment from the preceptor is a foundation for student development and independence (Ingwerson, 2014).
For over fifteen years I have enjoyed being an LPN. Working in nursing homes taught me to how to patience and how to use my knowledge to help my patients to the best of my ability. My time as an alcohol and drug rehabilitation nurse helped me to appreciate the courage it takes to admit to a problem, ask for help and the strength it takes to work to get better. Working in a hospital taught me to how to work in a fast paced setting while keeping my sanity intact.
I want to advocate for the patient and be a voice when it is needed and warrantied. My values and beliefs align with the metaparadigm concepts of nursing and how I plan on practicing after I graduate. Person As a nurse it is my job to treat the person,
therefore, improve quality of life. This is due in part to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, personal variables and interaction of internal and external variables that impact communication with patients. (www.nursingworld.org/Vol-19-2014/No.3-Sept.) Every nurse can employ to advocate for nursing as part as their daily activities must be point of care, nurse manager, or nurse educator. (www.nursingworld.org/Vol-17-2012/No.1-Jan.) There is one common voice among nurses, if they accept to join. The American Nurses Association (ANA) is a professional organization that advocates and protects the profession of nurses.
“Continuity at the end of the day will enhance your healing rates, make your administration happier, and improve the quality of life for your patients” ( Vinayagasundaram, Halpin & Sullivan 2009). To complete this study I would need to have the regular staff nurses participate as well as the residents that have wounds, agree to be in the study. The regular staff would be called in to a meeting at least one month before the proposed experiment. They would be educated on the practices of what would be expected of a wound care nurse. The staff interested to be a wound care nurse would then be handed applications to
Sarah was an acute care social worker from October 2014 to May 2015. She was promoted to the Palliative Care Program Coordinator and outpatient Social worker position beginning June 2015. Prior to her promotion, Sarah was viewed as a leader in the department. Hospital staff seek her out on a regular basis for social work advice and consultation. For the past two months Sarah has served as a mentor for new staff who have been hired into the department.
Nurses confirm their skills, knowledge, and abilities through certification and meeting ongoing learning and practice requirements through their certification. The advantages of being certificated are that patient, families, employers, and nurse’s benefit all from the certification. In the health care field nurses need to have knowledge and awareness of taking care of patients and taking care of someone else’s loved one. Registered nursing licensure measures a potential nurses competence in the ability to be proficient in the health care field. The rules and regulations viewed on the Maryland Board of Nursing website are strict and very well organized (National Council of State Boards of Nursing, n.d., para 1).
