However, I am aware that the beginning of effective leadership would be by developing a vision of the organization where a nurse leader serves. Coming up with a picture of what would be a future of excellence in delivering nursing care in the organization would be crucial in motivating and raising commitment among the other nurses. As a nurse leader, the vision that I would hold dear would be to ensure I have the capacity to make sure that the systems in place benefit individual needs of the patients in a manner that patients are always handled with respect and dignity while the work that nurses perform is respected and valued. For this to be met, there is a need for the nurse leader to assist the other nurses grasp the envisioned picture and remaining at the forefront in directing the others on where to go. Subsequently, I would want to be the kind of a nurse leader who can enable the staff to grasp the vision, to make sure the appropriate people assume the nursing roles and to model the behaviors that are desired of the other
Background and Significance of the Study Moral integrity is the key ingredients and navigator in professional nurses that lead to ultimate goal of nursing care. It has been recognized as a fundamental part of professional nurses’ practice (Ulrich et al, 2010; Pavlish et al, 2012). Professional nurses play the largest role to support the need for individualized treatment of the patient. The goals of the profession of nursing are related to ethical and involve protecting patients from harm while providing care that is the most benefit for the patient (Bosek, 2009; Kopala&Burkhart, 2005; Helft, 2011; Susan, 2013,). Nowadays, professional nurses have encountered to face and manage with moral problem that occur from complexity of patient health problems, advances in technology, inappropriate of health care system, policies and priorities that conflict with care needs, inadequate staffing and increased turnover, or lack of administrative support (Brazil et al. 2010; Eizenberg et al. 2009; Elpern et al. 2005;
Through this initial assessment, the nurse can obtain information that is crucial in providing the client with effective holistic care. Nursing assessment framework tools are used to help the nurse obtain accurate information about the patient’s wants and needs. This initial assessment based on subjective and objective data, helps to determine the patient’s actual problems and potential problems (Weber & Kelley, 2013). An assessment is carried out to obtain objective data and a physical baseline of the patient on admission.
Three Interacting Systems The three interacting systems in her Theory of Goal Attainment are the personal system, the interpersonal system, and the social system. Multiple concepts were identified from King’s analysis of nursing literature. The concepts that provided knowledge about a human being for example self, body image, perception, growth and development, time, learning, and personal space, were grouped into the personal system.
Consent is one of the key principles that guides health care professionals in the NHS constitution, this reflect the needs and preference of patients, their families and carers where right decision will be made and will be informed on all decision of their care and treatment, (DH ,2012), however healthcare professionals need to share information with the family and carer with the patient consent, and ensure a confidentiality policy is in place and followed by all staff (DH, 2003). It was important to explain to Mary-Jane of her need to be in the chair as it was a part of her ongoing treatment which was put in by the physio-therapist, as it was Mary-Jane right to accept or refuse this part of her treatment, (DH ,2012). In keeping with (NMC, 2013) code the student nurse gaining consent before taking Mary-Jane out the bed had to fully respect her right to decline or to accept as long as she fully understand what was said to her (Mental Capacity Act, 2005) as this shows that the patient decision was been respected. This indicates that the client is being protected
In this section, I will start to talk about the nurse practice act and how it improves patient care around the world. The Nurse Practice Act is laws that define responsibilities of the nurse and the scope of practice within their range. The range of activities and services as well as the qualifications for practice. The act describes what constitutes unprofessional conduct of misconduct and investigation and the disciplinary procedures for complaints filed against a nurse. These acts are in place to protect patients and families from harm as a result of unsafe or incompetent practices of unqualified nurses.
Adams, it is important to address all areas from a holistic standpoint. This would include psychosocial, environmental and medical interventions. While providing care it is important to remember Florence Nightingale’s goal of nursing is to “assist the patient to regain “vital powers” by meeting their needs, which in the end puts the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon.” (Smith & Parker, 2015). Nightingale believed that nurses contribute to restoring health in a direct and indirect way by the management of patient’s environment (Smith & Parker, 2015).
Justice is justice, the principle of justice, this is the basis of nursing actions for a nurse to do justice in each patient, meaning that every patient is entitled to the same action. The principle of Justice is needed to terpai the same and fair towards others who uphold moral principles, legal and humanitarian. This value is reflected in the professional prkatek when nurses worked for the correct therapy according the law, standard practices and beliefs to obtain quality health
This leads to a process of actions and reaction resulting in an interaction. An interaction is the goal directed portion of relationship built upon perception and communication. This leads to a transition, which is when mutually valued, as goals are achieved. Building a nurse-patient relationship with good communication is the key to mutually work towards an attainable goal to improve the patient 's’ health and quality of life.
What is your perception on professional boundaries? Professional boundaries are guidelines that help to keep a nurse and patient’s relationship professional. Professional boundaries help to keep the nurses focused on patient care and the patients focus on meeting their health care related goals. Give one example for each of the following and explain-
According to PAULA GRALING who is a DNP, RN, CNOR, FAAN CLINICAL NURSE SPECIALIST, DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY, INOVA FAIRFAX MEDICAL CAMPUS ,FALLS CHURCH, VA; “Nurses become the champion of change should work with your doctor to develop an atmosphere of mutual respect and stroke and other medical colleagues. We need to get used to using the vocabulary and evaluation tool that is used to measure the quality of the communication. Nurses, thoughtful, in the case of stakeholders for collaboration and interdisciplinary teamwork can we create and maintain with our environment and safety culture.”
A registered nurse is responsible for assessing patients needs and health care problems. They manage and implement the patients care plan. They educate their patients and provide support to their families. For the same reasons, healthcare professional are required to follow a legal legislature also known as a scope of practice. The Scope of Practice is a description of procedures, actions, and practices that a healthcare professional is allowed to take upon within the conditions of their professional license.
The policies also state nursing assignments are to be made to by the units’ charge nurse. The assignments are to facilitate prompt recognition of an untoward condition and to facilitate appropriate interventions by nursing, medical, and/or hospital staff (11.04.00). Once the charge nurse appoints care, the registered nurse is to plan, supervise, and evaluate the care of each patient. Prior to assigning staff, the charge nurses have guidelines they must follow which ensure assignments are made in the safest manner possible.
