Things like a RN and LPN is higher and can continue from even there. I will also talk about why being a medical assistant is so important and why they are important to other people. So as reading will learn all the things will need to know to become a medical assistant. Medical assistants start out their day getting all the exam rooms ready if they work at a doctors office. If they work at a hospital they start with cleaning the rooms that have not been cleaned yet.
Reflecting on this clinical practice has been unquestionably beneficial to me. It is helped me ascertain further information about dignity and the importance of it. It has also allowed me to evaluate the care I give and develop personally and professionally. Using the Gibbs (1988) reflective framework has enabled me to look at all aspects of the clinical practice and gain essential information relating the maintenance of dignity. I have found this assignment of reflecting extremely interesting and have enjoyed learning new things about myself and the care I give in clinical practice.
We also discussed how to be professional in the hospital setting and also how to deliver good quality care, by taking part in the practical tutorials each week. In the lectures we were shown how to reflect back on our experiences and I have chosen to reflect on the skill of taking and documenting blood pressure. In my assignment I will use Gibbs’ model of reflection (1988) as a framework to guide my writing, because I feel this model best helps me to think back on my practical performance in the lab. According to Chauhun and Nobel (2009) reflection allows the healthcare worker to refer back to an event and analyse their thinking processes and method in order to gain a new
Working in different settings and meeting new people that need to be taken care of has always interested me. The job I want to have while I go to college is the very challenging role of a Medical Assistant. Due to the experiences that have happened in my life, I believe that becoming a medical assistant is the best career choice for me. There are many duties and responsibilities I will have as a medical assistant. One of the responsibilities I would have as an medical assistant is answering telephones and dealing with patients.
I had learned different things in the medical field. I learn how to verify insurance, call in prescription and had a great deal of customer experience by now. I had the endurance to learn anything. I would be placed in front office and back office. I enjoyed back office more dealing with directly assisting the doctor.
Medical field is filled with different varieties of professions. The medical field is health professions by doctors, nurses and other allied health care services that have a passion for helping others. Since high school I always wanted to do something in the medical field. Now that I have taken a few steps into deciding my career, I want to become a medical assistant. A medical assistant are multi-skilled health care professional who are highly trained to perform administrative or clinical duties in an ambulatory or immediate rare settings.
For this assignment, Gibbs (1988) reflective framework will be used. Gibbs model reflects on six defined stages encouraging the nurse to think systematically, each stage provides structure and a methodical understanding of reflection throughout. Davies (2012) believes Gibbs reflective framework is an excellent example, one which is mainly used within health. Throughout this reflection my patient will be given anonymity using a false name to protect her identity and respect her confidentiality, she will be referred to as Mrs Glover (NMC Code, 2015). Mrs Glover is a young female of 26, who recently had bowel surgery, which has resulted in a stoma site being formed.
I compromise my faith when I fail to accept the world. I may not verbalize my faith in God if the patient does not have the same belief. However, if the patient asks about my faith, I will convey whom I belong to and where my hope comes from. If my faith is expressed, ethnocentrism is of concern. I do not want my patients to think that I am judgmental or view my religion as superior.
Justice Clark’s dissent emphasized the importance of confidentiality: “Until today’s majority opinion, both legal and medical authorities have agreed that confidentiality is essential to effectively treat the mentally ill and that imposing a duty on doctors to disclose patient threats to potential victims would greatly impair treatment” (Tarasoff v. Regents of University of California, 1976, p. 20). If patients are unable to trust their therapist completely, then it is likely that they will not be as open during their sessions, which will make it difficult for the therapist to accurately diagnose and treat the patients. The decision by the court places the therapist in a difficult position. A therapist could utilize the ethical principle of beneficence, defined as acting in ways that benefit another and prevents harm, in determining the best way to act to benefit both the patient and protect the third party. Per the ruling of the court, “when a therapist determines, or pursuant to the standards of his profession should determine, that his patient presents a serious danger of violence to another,” he is required to warn the victim of that “danger” (Felthous, 2006, p. 339).
This professional role does come with plenty of responsibilities and dedication as well. When I first began nursing at a hospital as inexperienced professional, the nurse manager Clara positioned me in the neurology department where the patients suffer from countless
