The significance of the study is: 1. To help patient understand their role in curbing the effect of hypertension in chronic kidney disease. 2.
This can put a patient to danger and at risk for injury. Hence, they must make sure to record down all the patient’s evaluation findings, information and findings. Other than that, nurses should also be discreet, stay educated and follow proper procedure and
The purpose of transfusion is twofold: to improve the anemia and to suppress the ineffective erythropoiesis. Chronic transfusions prevent most of the serious growth, skeletal and neurological complications of thalassemia major (6). In spite of its vital role in saving lives and enhancing patients' lives, blood transfusion is associated with risks. Making mistakes in blood transfusion and insufficient control of patients who receive blood during the transfusion can lead to death in such patients (7). So, standards of safe blood transfusion must be developed and maintained to ensure a safe and rational approach in the use of blood transfusions in the management of these disorders, also careful consideration must be given to the associated dangers(6).
This might be especially relevant to infective endocarditis (IE) as habits like poor dental hygiene or IV drug use increases the risk. To enhance prevention, patients at risk therefore need to be educated in an efficient manner. ( 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) The HBM incorporates different aspects of the individual's attitude and investigates which elements influence the compliance of the patient. To increase the likelihood to change four main components are of importance; the perceived susceptibility, the perceived seriousness, the perceived benefits and the perceived barriers.
ABSRACT Clinical practice guideline having much importance to improve the patient care outcomes and safety from complications. Nurses role as health care provider, depend on multi-disciplinary knowledge and experience to use of clinical practice guidelines to promote their nursing practices. Nursing staff adherence to clinical practices guidelines is help in improving patient safety in hospital. The purpose of this study is exploring the factors that promotes and inhibit adherence to clinical practices. This research based on systematic literature review and quantitative evaluation of research results.
Hence, in this way, people were got used to with these hand hygiene markers. Hence, it is recommended for different healthcare facilities to give awareness to their healthcare administrators and health infection nurses to use hand hygiene markers in order to avoid nosocomial infection. This aspect will deteriorate the mortality and morbidity rate as well from the healthcare and among the patients since majority of the diseases are contagious and are travelled from either physicians or nurses to patients. This effect leads to more diseases among patients, nurses, administrators, and physicians as well. This aspect controls the committee and supply chain of the healthcare facility and hospitals to keep a watch on the health acquired infection.
Severe outcomes can be result to medication errors including disability, paralysis and death. These errors may also have impact on the family members of the victim as they know that the danger facing the victim could have been avoided if the care givers could have been more careful. These errors can be prevented by careful changes in operational systems in the hospital. Hospital managers can harmonize their systems and summon their workers to be more careful when handling the patients. With prevention of these errors, patients would spend little time in hospitals, with fast healing process with prevention of health status
To support this claim Watson stated that ‘nurses who are not able to practice caring can become hardened, brittle, worn down, and robot like. (Watson p.467). Watson calm that patients heal are directly affected by how they feel about their current situation. Therefore, it is the nurses and healthcare practitioners’ duty to ensure that patients are comfortable and are properly cared for. Due to overload, nurses and practitioner experience reoccurring errors, which place patients and healthcare workers’ life, at risk.
Patient satisfaction about nurse services in surgical unit Introduction : Patient satisfaction is an essential and commonly used indicator for measuring the quality in health care.

By creating this comprehensive list of the medication plan given to the patient, the hospital pharmacist can then send this information to the community pharmacist and make sure that the information is held up to date. This would allow for a smoother transition for the patient and it would allow the patient to be more informed of their medications. The pharmacist is “poised to play an important role in improving medication management during transitions of care and reducing readmission rates” so the pharmacist should play a more active role to help ensure the best therapy for the patient (7). The pharmacist should ultimately design an ideal system for Medication Reconciliation to help reduce medication errors and better inform patients on ADEs to prevent any unnecessary medical
In health care settings like hospitals and other care facilities like nursing homes and rehabilitation centers, pressure ulcer is identified as a vast evil. Prevention of pressure ulcer has been a greater distress to the healthcare industry. It affects patient’s lifespan and it is a grander concern for the hospital as the treatment of a pressure ulcer is way expensive. Critically ill, bed bound and aged patients are at greater risk to develop a pressure ulcer due to inability to turn and reposition by themselves. Moreover, the patients with dementia and underprivileged diet with inadequate fluid intake are more prone to pressure ulcers.
Managed Health Care is described as a multitude of various systems and arrangements that are utilized for managing, delivering and evaluating care (Morton, 2014). People enroll in a managed care system as an effective means to receive appropriate medical services within the parameters of their selected plan (Morton, 2014). Managed care, develops services around the patients’ needs in order to reduce duplication and costs all while providing appropriate levels of service in a timely manner (Morton, 2014). Managed care works by, health care professionals and service managers managing care within established constructed restraints all while delivering timely and appropriate health care services. When compared to standard medical insurance managed
Studies show that manage care that have a higher level of control on patient care it leads to lower medical cost and hospital inflation on cost(Bundorf, Schulman, Stafford, Gaskin, Jollis & Escare, 2004). Also, manage care controls the fees that are paid to physician and manage medical equipment that is provided to the patients (Bundorf, Schulman, Stafford, Gaskin, Jollis & Escare, 2004). The studies show that it is a spillover for manage care and it affects the no managed care patients (Bundorf, Schulman, Stafford, Gaskin, Jollis & Escare, 2004). Most doctors feel that manage care is a positive step for controlling the cost for healthcare. They also, feel that it have a negative impact on medical care (Deom, Agoritsas, Bovier & Perneger, 2010).
Technology is a massive part of our society today and it is continuously changing. It can help solve issues and increase sufficiency. One safety issue that technology can help improve is medication administration errors that occur in hospitals and other health care settings. A medication administration error is defined as any preventable event that could possibly result in unsuitable medication use or harm to the patient while the health care professional is in control of the medication.
