It has taken me ups and down to safeguard my personality in regards to the nursing profession because the profession does not provide room for pretense. As can be expected, other jobs, such mechanics and carpentry might not demand much respect only because the players seem to attend to similar situations, hence proving it impossible to understand the concepts surrounding morality. In the nursing arena, respect is a necessary element towards creating good terms with the concerned people. For instance, nurses should respect patients for the betterment of service delivery and achievement of peaceful coexistence. In circumstances where respect is not availed, it becomes impossible to achieve promising results.
When they take care of patient, they often forgot the practice of preventing harm from patient which influences the practice. Stage2. Feelings As a nurse, it is significant for us to promote safety during the practice. Yet, some of them only focus on the surface quality but not holistic one.
The nurse not only needs to speak clearly to the patient but also have attentive listening skills. Sometimes if you are so focused on an end result you stop listening as well and therefore miss a great deal from the patient. A solution for this could be to slow down and work in small steps. There needs to be more and better patient education.
Both doctors and patients need to understand each other in order to find a solution for the patient, otherwise, their communication will come to nothing. Thus, the interpreter's job is not only to put that communication at ease, but also to help save the lives of many who might be severely injured as a result of misunderstanding. However, not any family member, a nurse or a stranger can be used as medical interpreters. There should be skills and requirements that a medical interpreter is expected to meet.
Lastly, people must rid themselves of any bad and unhealthy ideals. They must not feel pressured by the media, friends, family or external sources to change themselves and pursue activities that they feel uncomfortable about and are not right. They must not succumb to people’s expectations and unhealthy ideals, but instead set high (but reachable) standards for themselves to keep improving and being better. They must realize that they don’t have to be perfect and suit what everyone think of them, but instead feel comfortable in their own skin and set healthy standards to keep improving instead of being
This resilience has been shown to help managers to enable their staff to withstand the changing needs of the healthcare system. However, this is not something that can be taught, and is not a trait but more of a state of mind including being realistic, in the moment, aware and prepared (Countu, 2002). One main criticism of this observation is that we will have no way of knowing whether the staff were acting as they usually would or whether they were acting differently as they were aware they were being observed, as this has been shown to change the nature of a person’s behaviour and is more commonly referred to as the “Hawthore Effect” (Campbell, Maxey and Watson, 1995). Another key issue is that again these views are subjective and emotion/demeaner are not always universally interpreted.
Even one instance of abandonment can cause a nurse to find it difficult to have the trust of coworkers. They may also find it problematic trying to gain employment with any past of abandonment. From all this research I have learned additional actions that are forms of abandonment that I hadn’t thought of previously. I feel that I am better prepared to not commit any acts of abandonment now that I have gained new knowledge and understanding.
When the nurse spread the word that the patient was more difficult to work with, the oncoming nurse was immediately wary of that patient. While not all nurses will take that kind of information to heart, some will. It will impact the quality of care that the patient deserves because the nurse will more likely spend her time with her other patients, than with the difficult patients. His needs may not be fully met because the nurse wanted to avoid any difficult
Kirmayer et al (2011) in camps refugees are treated as victims or vulnerable groups that require help within the refugee centre while the refugees themselves know they are survivors who are seeking safety. This confusion has led to the lack of proper strategies that can address the mental illness of refugees. The ability of the refugees to cope with trauma from the experiences they had becomes difficult and not an easy task. To be able to address the issues of mental health of the refugees they need t be given protection that will make them feel comfortable and safe.
And that inherently weakens the organization”. In nursing, if nurses perform poorly and are unable to successfully care for patients that reflects on not only themselves but also their unit, organization, and ultimately their profession. It has been found that nursing is the most trusted profession and I would absolutely like to keep it that way. I realize that I would not be able to do this without the support of those around me and without creating an environment conducive to my vision. Above everything else, as a nursing leader I would keep in mind two things that Sinek said, “Leadership is a choice, it is not a rank” and “We call them leaders because they go first.
