Many of the patients go home after surgery and I may no longer have the ability to see if they had developed a surgical site infection. Conclusion I have learned from the study that there needs to be further research conducted with proper follow ups on all patients to determine what percentage of chlorhexidine solution would be best to use in the pre-op routine of patients to best protect against surgical site infections. It was noted in the study that quite a few participants had some sort of reaction to the chlorhexidine solution. The study did say there was reductions in chlorhexidine regimens versus regular soap and water pre-operative
They mentor their patients, educate them and perform research to improve the field of medicine. Patients report a high level of satisfaction when they are seen by an NP, and these professionals help to provide care for individuals who might otherwise be facing a primary care physician shortage. In addition, through their personalized care and the counseling they provide, nurse practitioners help to reduce health care costs. Actually, patients using an NP tend to visit the emergency less often than those seen by physicians, pay less for medications and stay in the hospital for a shorter period of

Outpatient services “eliminates inefficient, ineffective or unnecessary processes in a hospital setting” (Grubem et al., 2013). Not only does this benefit the hospitals with expensive procedures but it also helps the patient with costs. This will also benefit the hospitals so they could have more room for patients who really need to stay in the hospital for more serious diseases or use the hospital beds for “community based emergency” situations (Torrens & Williams, 2008). Other forms or alternative medical care is also available to patients such as chiropractors, acupuncture, or other holistic medicine that can help in a person’s well-being.

A hospital stay is normally associated with only increasing a patient’s overall well-being. However, that is not always the case. While the health-care team is fully taking care of a patient’s needs, human dignity can sometimes be lost.
