Utilizing these five practices in the preliminary meeting with nursing staff, will help achieve a smoother transition. The five topics for the meeting are outlined below. Relative Advantage Relative advantage is when a new way is more advantageous to those using it than the old way. Electronic health records are better for the patients, making faster communication between medical professionals from different organizations and preventing repeated testing, however, that does not mean it is more advantageous for the nursing staff, than systems already in place. The majority of concern from nurses is whether it will take longer to document on the new system than currently, taking more time away from the bedside (Lee, 2003).
fall risk patients. Result of this targeted patient intervention results in more efficient outcome as it reduces unnecessary burden on the healthcare team and cost to the hospital management. Working in the multidisciplinary team results in the more effective prevention strategy for the fall of the elderly patient. Multidisciplinary team has more accurate diagnosis and treatment of the said condition. Administration of vitamin D in the patient with risk of fall, results in less number of fractures and less severity fractures in the hospital.
Long shifts and never knowing exactly what to expect when arriving at work isn’t appealing to everyone but for as long as I can remember, I have aspired to be a nurse. I am currently in my second semester of nursing school at Wake Technical Community College. If selected to receive this scholarship I will be able to focus more of my attention on reaching my goal of becoming a nurse and giving back to the community through volunteering at medical clinics. As a nurse, we have the unique opportunity to help people of all ages, to be a support for families, to teach, and to love on and care for patients who are in their most vulnerable places in their lives. There is no denying that the demands of nursing school result in little free time.
This lower cost allows more physicians access to these devices which means better healthcare for their patients. This allows physicians to give faster diagnosis because physicians can use ultrasound devices in their offices which saves time and money for their patients. Physicians can almost immediately diagnose a patient during an ultrasound procedure being done in their office because results are done in real time. This can lead to physicians giving faster treatment that could be life saving for a patient. These small, less expensive devices allow for physicians to have a device set up in every exam room so that patients do not have to move from room to room.
Nurses usually have a nurturing heart that helps to heal any illness whether someone is sick physically or emotionally. Most people need TLC (tender loving care) because usually in time it nurtures the heart. Nurses alsohelp to educate many patients on different health topics that may help them feel better. It also provides proof that nurses care about one’s well being because they would not take the time to educate a patient about his or her illness if they did not feel it was beneficial. Another reason I close to major in Nursing is for the money and benefits that the profession offers.
Using the general interpersonal skill can perfectly identify patients’ needs and understanding the unmet needs of patients so that the effect of therapy could be better. It simply emphasizes the nurse-patient relationship is important in curing the illness. There are still some shortcomings of this theory, Peplau mentioned interpersonal skill and applied it into patient and nurse’s relationship. I think it could partly apply into nurse-patient relationships. We are now having emergency department in hospital, it only takes us half an hour to see doctor, and not much time will be taken in the communication part.
In the health care profession teamwork is essential, doctors, nurses, lab technicians, nutritionist, etc. all work together to provide the best holistic care for each client. Unfortunately, I rather work by myself than with others. When I work alone I know for a fact that I will do the job the right way; when I work with others I most likely find myself micromanaging than trusting that my teammates know what they are doing. I have to realize that there is no room for mavericks or for rebels.
These barriers include: Not having the time for going to the sessions every week, and also not having time to do the exercises specified by your therapist at home. This may be because you are very busy with work or school work. Convenience would be an issue, because there may not be many biofeedback therapists near your home, making it inconvenient, and a pain to travel to. This also ties into being busy all the time and not being able to go to the sessions. Other Information Biofeedback can enhance the effects of other therapy treatments if done in conjunction with each other.
These non-nursing jobs consist of but are not limited to changing linens, transporting patients, and taking out the garbage (Robeznieks 2015). The amount of time used for non-nursing tasks could be allocated to assisting in the duties that a nurse is obligated to fulfill. With nurses performing the correct duties, there will be increased efficiency throughout the emergency and triage departments and the non-nursing duties can be delegated to the medical assistants who can easily handle the tasks. The overall increase in efficiency is undeniable as trained medical staff does not need to be transporting patients themselves from department to department. Medical assistants can easily pick up the excess non-nursing tasks to create a more efficient environment.
Often in life, we come across situations that may stretch us and challenge us, finding ourselves forced to get out of our comfort zone. Volunteering is definitely not for everyone, people may not have the adequate time, confidence, knowledge. But that does not mean you avoid the situation at all times, you must allow yourself to step out of your comfort zone and experience things that you would never think about doing. On the first week of volunteering it was a bit intense for me, as I found it difficult and little bit sad to watch the women living the way they do, for some reason I felt that they were always missing their children and grandchildren. Some of the residents did not even have family so they never got visitations.
Full Coverage Health Insurance Full insurance coverage is very beneficial when it comes to regular health assessments and screenings in women. Some of the purposes of regular assessments is for primary prevention, it also helps the primary care physician identify risk factors for any common chronic diseases and it can be essential to detect diseases that have no apparent symptoms, which is considered to be secondary prevention. With regular assessments the patient will have up to date clinical data and it also gives the nurse a chance to educate the patient on promoting healthy behaviors (Shiel, Jr., 2014). By women seeking regular health assessments they are taking steps to live a longer, healthier life (no author, 2015). When
