This could result in malpractice or lack of care standards on the part of the case manager. The case manager needs to talk to the physicians to ensure they are clearly communicating their patients' condition and that they are on board with the plan care all way to the discharge plan. (Hogue & Prudhomme, 2012) Another point is documentation on a patient. There is a saying in the medical field if you didn’t document it didn’t happen, make sure as a case manager, everything you do is fully documented in the patient record. Develop habits that are good, you always want to document on a client when everything is fresh.
Depersonalization refers to treat other as objects rather than people through uncaring attitudes and behaviors. Diminished personal accomplishment is to evaluate oneself negatively because of failure a result it occurs when the individual’s external demands become higher than their coping ability. (Maslach, Schaufeli, leiter., 2001) . Many studies revealed that there is a high prevalence of burnout among nurses worldwide, it can affect approximately 45% of medical and nursing staff . (Abdo, El-Sallamy, El-Sherbiny, & Kabbash., 2015) .
This means that we need to stand up for the patient and speak on the patients behalf where we feel that the patient is unable to do so for themselves. If mental, sexual, financial or physical abuse is suspected then it is the nurses duty to try and find out from the patient what is happening and who is abusing them. Once the nurse has a good idea of who is abusing the patient he/she needs to speak on behalf of the patient to SANC, the matrom of the ward, the patients family and potentially even the police if need be. Performing an assessment: The nurse concerned about the patient’s wellbeing should ask the patient about the way in which they are being treated, check the patients skin integrity as well as looks for any bruises or signs of physical or sexual abuse on the patient’s body. The nurse should observe the way in which the patient acts towards each staff member (are they afraid, permissive, angry, scared around a particular member of staff?)
Responding to negative feedback will ensure the hospital continues to evolve and change for the betterment of the community (Meyer & O’Brien-Pallas, 2010). Furthermore, the hospital has the responsibility to identify opportunities to improve the patient experience. To remain in alignment with the hospital’s mission and vision a solution to the problem is warranted. It is imperative that a hospital summary and care orders accompany the patient when discharged to an ECF. According to the American Nurses’ Association (2010), standard 5A of “Standards of Professional Nursing Practice”, registered nurses are responsible for communication with the patient, family and care providers during transitions of
W-6 PROFESSIONAL BOUNDARIES 1. I chose this competency because as a nurse it is vital to maintain professional boundaries and still be able to provide the therapeutic care without personally getting attached to patients. 2. From the article, I learned that it is ok to be present with your patient, and caring about what they might be going through as you provide necessary care and support, but not to excessively worry about a patient in your personal life/home” (p. 407) 3. The article changed my way of thinking as it increases my understanding as to why I need to maintain strictly professional boundaries/limits and keeping the conversation focused on the patient, provide care and support as a nurse, rather than a friend which aid in managing
The main research question that the authors of this study sought to answer is if “hospice volunteers can facilitate communication about pain with family caregivers.” Studies show that, although there is a growing need for hospice nurses and physicians, there are not enough qualified workers to meet the demand. In hopes of curbing this shortage in workforce, the authors conducted this study to test their hypothesis that hospice volunteers can fulfill a communication role for family caregivers concerning pain management. 2. Methods & Evidence: Please briefly explain what kind of data the researchers collected (ex. : survey responses, interviews, focus groups, experimental).
Virginia Henderson’s theory closely resembles the personal theory I use as my guide when providing patient care. Henderson stated that it is necessary for the nurse to “get inside the skin of each of her patients in order to know what he needs” (Masters, 2017, p. 53). Knowing your patients inside and out is an invaluable tool. When you can truly see your patient, it allows you to provide the best patient care for that person. Patient care is individualized because every person has different
In adopting this management strategy, each employee can stand it for another roles and responsibility in the event of medical or family emergency may arise. It booster confidence in cross examination of each individual work rendered to the patient, accept constructive ideas coming from subordinates to increase production efficiency and quality care to patient. Set personal and professional goals when it comes to way each employee see themselves in future, what admiration are they looking for? Possibly how can they take over from their boss upon retirement from the hospital line of
The patients will trust the nurse when they know that they can be reliable. The nurse can gain clients trust by being caring, showing an interest in them, being honest and showing the client that they are listening to them. In nursing it is important to be empathetic. The nurse ensure that they are being empathic towards the client and not sympathetic. Empathy allows the nurse to relate to the client’s pain or distress.
This is very critical as it helps in the diagnosis and also helps me to get to know the patient’s history [Doctor 1]. However, one challenge with regard to patient active participation in the encounter process is the lack of role clarity. Both doctors and patients shared this view. Some patients are not sure of their role in the consulting room…some believe that with the minimum or scanty information, doctors should be able to diagnose and treat them accordingly [Doctor 7]. It is quite worrying that some patients come to the consulting room and try to suggest what to prescribe for them.
