Evidence and Evaluation in Bedside Reporting Bedside reporting assist nurses with a chance to improve patient safety and increase patient collaboration in the arrangement of care. There is also less care correlated to inaccurate or deficiency of information because the report process includes actual patient apparition. Increased staff approval with bedside reporting supports teamwork and supports accountability. By associating bedside reporting there is an optimistic impact on the patient and their relatives. It is vital to put the patient at the midpoint of their own concern.
I helped my co-workers that I noticed were struggling or overwhelmed with tasks so patients could get fair service and I also involved patients and the families in patients care, education on the mechanism of the medication etc. D-7 Conflict Management 1. Knowledgeable and ability to manage conflict with co-workers/client by calmly listening to what is being said and asking for clarification instead of reacting before listening i.e. during my clinical 2 one of the nurses observed my head to toe assessments and she sarcastically told me in front of my patients that she did not like how I did the assessments and suggested I do it her way, I did not ask why but instead I followed her way to avoid conflict. 2.
By simply changing the way in which people are cared for improves a whole vast of other aspects. This in turn decreases the workload on each of the healthcare professionals as they are not in control but helping their patients make a decision. This means that the person centred model benefits everyone – both the individuals and the health care team looking after
Patients have benefited greatly from individualised care plan based on the activities of daily living. Using this model has helped to assess independence and potential in activities of daily living , it helps to determine what intervention should be taken out to increase independence as well as ongoing support needs for any dependency that still exists for the patient. When assessing a patient, nurses assess how much their life has changed due to the illness, injury or admission of care, later plan a way of increasing independence and quality of life. This leads to interventions that support independence in areas that may be difficult for the patients to address alone, it helps to promote maximum independence for the patient. This model helps approach and organise care of patients.
At the simplest level professionalism with patients comes down to expectations, intentions and perceptions. Patient expectations are preconceived ideas of how they feel they should be treated when in the healthcare setting. When nurses have clear, purposeful intentions that meet those expectations this result in high patient satisfaction. Consequently, the patient leaves the facility perceiving that they have been cared for professionally. When you act professional you communicate that you have assumed the professional helping role, you are clinically skilled, and your focus is on the patient.
Maintaining patients safety reduces the risk of adverse events such as, accidental injuries, complications, disability and even death, resulting from healthcare management and the care a patient receives (Van de Castle et al.2004) (Patient Safety, 2014). The prevalence of adverse events within a facility are a determinant of the quality of care provided to patients and is an indicator of patient safety. These incidences not only effect the patient and staff but also financially burden the healthcare system (Kang, Kim & Lee,
This study is consistent with other studies that examined the relationship among the physical attractiveness of healthcare settings, patient satisfaction, and perceived quality of care. Leonard L. Berry & Janet T. Parish, (2008) found that the design of the hospital impacts nurses and may impact their job satisfaction and stress, even the decision whether or not to remain a hospital nurse. A well-designed hospital is not only important to patients; it also is important to those who serve
In an interview with a clinician in a Chicago Hospice dealing with marriage and family therapy among individuals and families who are in crisis, the clinician termed burnout and compassion fatigue as the most challenging aspects of his work. Burnout and compassion fatigue is brought about by instances of empathy for the patients as well as failing to meet productivity standards. The clinician said that they use self-reflection to deal with the challenges of burnout and compassion fatigue. The self-reflection strategies help the interviewee to identify the emotions they are feeling and the reasons behind such feelings. Such may be as a result of non-work related activities, which would help out in distinguishing between the two.
The factors that will play a big role in the study will be the nurse’s flexibility and acceptance to change, complying to the change and environment. Other risks that is involved in this study was price of the equipments to be used such as the do not disturb signs and vests, the orientation costs that is needed to orient the staffs, bulletin boards and posts that will inform patients, staffs and other people in the vicinity to adhere to the policy of not disturbing nurses that are wearing signs. The benefits of this study will outweigh the price through decreasing the rate of medication errors happening. Before implementing the proposed change, feedback from the staffs was obtained through anonymous paper survey rating the important contributors to medication errors. The survey showed that interruptions has the highest point and is the number one cause of medication errors as stated by the staffs.
In this case, his mistake has to be analyzed and feeling of self-accusation should not appear. On the other hand, this analyze and rationalization should be made by physician himself, because many physician’s have lack of forgiveness and understanding to their colleagues mistakes (Rubin, 2015). Then, their influence can rather worsen the situation than correct it. In addition, medical error has to be reported to physician’s institution. Thought reports to these institutions about errors and prevented errors are useful, because they help to reform the whole healthcare system and make it better, according to Barach et al.
