Although while I learned about ultrasound in this class when I observed it in real life it wasn’t as fascinating as it was during class. I found it hard to decipher organs on the ultrasound monitor and didn’t really grasp what the ultrasound tech was talking about. The ultrasound tech was a great person to work with and was very humorous with his patients and me. He was very helpful when I had a question and tried hard to explain what he was looking at on the monitor to me and the patient. I feel like I would have found it much easier to see structures in the ultrasounds if there had been an ultrasound of a baby or something that was easier to see but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see such an
Reflection on Medication Administration Description (Competency 3j) I have looked over my moral development regarding medicine administration and have noticed there is the need for improved and has been agreed with my mentor to write a piece of reflection to identify areas of concern Feelings One of the major concern is the pace of dispensing and the time spent used to open charts and allocate them is one of my weakness. Although I am learner I need to back up the pace of dispensing so that patient doesn 't feel my skills is dull or boring and waste of time. I Had developed that feeling of being extra careful to avoid drug error and that makes me feel slightly nervous more also being under the influence of supervision as well. Evaluation
As seen, Bertie’s stammering problem could have been solved when he was little, but that was hindered by the lack of moral support and attention from his parents and the nanny. However, the couching skills of the therapist helped him regain confidence in his voice again, an element that was so necessary for him as a king. Moreover, the use of facial expressions, gestures, body language, and exchange of words have helped analyze the feelings and messages of the characters in the
You will be working with infants most premature. Infants can’t talk to you and tell you how they feel and sometimes that can be very difficult. You will need to be very patient and understanding with the babies; their parents and the families, many people and emotions are involved in this line of work. There will come times you will need to be to hide your emotions because your job may be very sad and heartbreaking, but you will also have very fun exciting moments that will overcome the bad ones. I think the best part of neonatal nursing is you get to be apart so someone new to the world.
Before I discovered the advantages of mindfulness, I would treat some patients in a rather harsh way with no compassion. Once I discovered about mindfulness I changed my perspective and started treating patients with love and compassion. Some patients are not mentally well and they need sane people like me to help them medically in order to gain their sanity. Mindfulness has enabled me and other professionals to bring many insane people back to normal by using medication and teaching them to practice
Throughout the sessions, our aim was to help a group of children who have been suffering from dyslexia. It is a difficult task as treating dyslexia is a profession and almost all of us do not qualify to be a professional. I still find it difficult even the 9 sessions are finished. Theories about dyslexia have been taught. However, a real treatment is not only involved theories, but the clients themselves.
It gave me a little experience as to what it is like as a nurse and good bedside manners. I gave me a good understanding that certain people believe in certain things and want things done in a certain way. It changed my outlook on nursing homes because the residents just really need someone to talk to and it will make their whole day. They can not do daily task on their own anymore and it does frustrate them like it would anyone else. I feel for the residents that just want to be able to do tasks on their own, like walking across the room or feeding themselves.
I did some research to change my major to something involving what I did at the YOC. I found out about social work. I hadn’t really understood what social work/human service workers did until I started this research. I had been in counseling briefly as a teen. Being an angsty teen is hard; it also made it harder to learn I had an anxiety disorder.
A few factors that can affect the relationship between a nurse and a patient would be the tone of voice used, the way we phrase our sentences and avoiding the use of medical terms to make the patient understand better. Besides that, communicating with patient in terms of serving their daily needs is part of our noble job too. Although language can sometimes be a communication barrier when dealing with an elderly or a foreigner, nurses are expected to try other means and ways to converse to achieve a certain level of understanding, such as via sign and body language. Other than language barrier, communicating with patient daily is essential in order to build a good rapport and instilling a sense of trust. For example, when patient asks for a favour to be showered despite odd timings or during busy hours, nurses have to obey their needs and meet their expectations.
Based on the standard of practice for nurses and midwives, standard 1 stated that nurses are required to apply their professional knowledge during practice. It is also important to always have a reason for your act as you do and knowing the consequences of doing it (Benner & Sutphen, 2007). If I had more knowledge about MRSA, I would have known the appropriate PPE to wear in the appropriate timing and not creating fear in Mr Lim. Besides that, limited use of relevant knowledge might affect the quality of care and work (Eraut, 2000). In the case, I could not comfort Mr Lim due to my limited knowledge in MRSA hence lack of explanation given to Mr Lim.
In a way I have become more caring as a person, especially when you see newborn babies struggling and fighting for their lives. Seeing that in person makes me realize how grateful I am to have a healthy daughter. Last week I spent the week with the pediatric techs and l learned a lot and enjoyed working with the kids. I got the chance to do some IVP’s in generals in between down time, and I had three Radiologist talk to me in one
I know from experience the challenging times at the hospital, I feel that with the little trinket or stuffed animal a young child gets brings sparks in their eyes and brings comfort while at the hospital. We hoped to accomplish the act of love and comfort to those young kids that need a little item to make them feel joyful and more at ease with whatever they are
The early diagnosis and excessive treatment of Bipolar Disorder in children is a major problem today. Even though “The Medicated Child” was a documentary filmed in 2008, a lot of the information presented is still relevant. Children are still being misdiagnosed or overly medicated because no one is positive of the extent of the disorder or if it is present at all in the child. There have been many studies on the best way to diagnose a child with this disorder in order to have a more conclusive diagnosis. The medication given to children diagnosed with the disorder is also an issue because a lot of the medications given have yet to be tested in the pediatric field.
This energy sometimes rubs off on us and we treat this person just how they treat us and at the end of the day no one is happy. I believe as future therapist nonverbal communications can make or break you. I have had patients that wanted to give me attitude and wanted to be hard to deal with, but I always made it a point to redirect them and change the session around in a positive way.
”It was very shocking, but it gradually became more comfortable.” “I’m pretty comfortable,” said Ellison Girod, another student optimistically beginning her first year at Conifer. ”I know a few teachers already and I really like it here, so it’s a lot easier. It seems a lot better than middle school and I feel like [the school year] is going to go well.” Skirting the Commons are teachers, waiting excitedly with large, welcoming smiles as they watch their new pupils fill the commons. Just like the Freshman, many of these teachers are nervous to start their first year at Conifer High School; to teach their new students; to make an impression. “This will be my first year with Conifer; my second year teaching,” said John Shipley, the newest member to Conifer High’s athletics department.
