1. What makes this problem important? The issue of nurse staffing and patient safety is vital to the health of our patients and the longevity of out nursing licenses. No one wants to be the sentinel event that forces the change, so they leave making the problem of staffing worse. The departures cause inexperienced nurses to arrive and make the critical situation of staffing even more challenging.
In Ethan Frome, it is present between Ethan and his wife Zeena; Zeena attempts to get rid of the housekeeper Mattie because she sees what Ethan wants/ sees in her. There is large amounts of mistrust in the Frome household due to much isolation, sickness, and also unequal work load also “when the sense of a partnership is lacking-when your partner is oblivious to or inconsiderate of your needs, this weakens the ties that hold you together” (text 2, lines 26-27). In The Scarlett Letter, Hester Prynne has deep seated mistrust due to the ‘brand’ on the chest, the ‘A’. Hester is full of mistrust because the one she committed adultery with, was also the one that helped with her sentence. Another factor is that her old husband was healing Dimmsdale, her ‘illegitimate’ lover.
I am a aide in the Acute Rehabilitation wing at St Joseph’s Wayne Hospital and am writing you on behalf of the lack of communication between the on duty nursing staff and aide employees. I as well as many other aides feel that the nursing charts and boards are disheveled and unkept. The aides looks to these charts with tremendous important when caring for a patient. I believe without a change, patients safety is in severe danger. We would like the Hospital to address this as soon as possible, to insure patient welfare.
Not only will did this nurse stop the patient from sharing information and questions, but they may have broken the trust between the two. If there is anything of importance later on in the care, the patient may feel in unimportant to share because of the lack of interest in this
Referencing to Jones, Hamilton, Murry (2015), lack of prioritization can lead to unfinished nursing care, and missed care. “Prioritization strategies of nurses leave patients vulnerable to unmet educational, emotional, and psychological needs” (Jones, 2016). This paper summarizes and reflects on how the lack of prioritization leads to unfinished care and how that is associated with negative nurse, patient, and organizational outcomes (Jones, 2015). Prioritization is highly involved in the clinical setting, prevalence of unfinished care due to lack of prioritization is high among nursing staff, and the staffing and work environments are a stronger influence on unfinished care (Jones, 2015). Work prioritization in the clinical setting has a
(Hold LM, 2005), (Rickles D, 2007), (Bierema LL, 2003) Unfortunately, many systems lack the capacity to understand and or measure their own weaknesses and constraints, leaving policy makers (including the regional medical officer) with no ideas on what they can and should strengthen. Within this complex system, interventions ( such as primary health care services), even the simplest, fail to achieve their intended goals not because of the inherent flaw in interventions itself, but rather to unpredictable behavior of the system around it (e.g., health workers blaming the poor working conditions, the users underusing services due to inadequate or deplorable services provided by the health units and the managers/leaders being part of the system as well as steering the strengthening wheel on supply side). Another example in which one intervention may in on one situation and not another is conditional cash transfer to may increase health seeking where transport to the facilities is available and not another, or it may entrench certain unintended behaviors to maintain status quo for continued eligibility in a mother with malnourished child. (Meadows D, 2008) This case gives us a perfect example of the characteristic of a system, which is constantly changing, tightly connected,
Individuals with Lack of Self confidence to interact with the doctor, individuals who are disempowered in the society are some of the widely effected victims. Inadequate staff facilities, low levels of motivation and lack of medical training restricts the doctors and care givers from building an effective and efficient relationship with the patients, refraining them from dealing with patients expression of values, ideas and feelings, which restricts them within the understanding of only the patients
Withholding the truth from patients disrespects the individual right of patients. Also, due to the rich professional knowledge, physicians frequently underestimate the ability of patients to accept death, but the knowledge cannot be the reason of concealing truth, patients should know their state of illnesses. (Robert Scott Stewart, 2010) From the interpersonal perspectives, this way of withholding information is bad for the doctor-patient relationship, and will make the distrust appear between them, thereby disturbs the treatment. (Robert Scott Stewart,
1999). A high nursing turnover impacts serious challenges at all levels in healthcare delivery. The commonest negative influence of turnover in the context of the work environment is the inability of a health facility or organization to meet the patients’ needs and less time devoted to provide quality care to patients (Tai et al., 1998, Shields and Ward, 2001, Spilsbury et al., 2011). Increased turnover is also known to have a direct effect on patients’ safety resulting in medical errors, administration mistakes, and increased infection rates in patients (source). Shortage of nursing staff, resulting from turnover may have significant consequences on patients, even leading to patient injuries and deaths (Stolberg,
Given how doctors are stressed as they fear being targeted for lawsuit, they can’t perform their professions properly due to the fear that always linger around. Furthermore, if this continues, the situation seen from whom aspired to be doctors may lead them to abandon what is initially their dream and ultimately decreases the number of available physicians. I feel that even though it is in every right for patients to claim their rights through lawsuit, they should also consider that that being a doctor is not easy and sympathize more with the physicians. If not, the patients themselves will have no medical services provided by those they sued in the future, resulting in a situation that no one
