This chapter emphasize on the power of praying with a patient when possible. A family member states on page 115 “I was particularly touched when she prayed for Jonathan in the Hospital”. She was talking about being grateful to the nurse for praying. This text help me understand the importance of spirituality in healthcare settings and how I need to make sure this is also a “calling” for me. The insights I gain from the book is that God loves us more than anyone and we should love him only in return.
There are three dimension of nursing care which are used to assess patients satisfaction, that are, Nursing skill, Attention and Physical Care(Khan et al., 2007) Patients are the best source of information about a hospital system’s education, communication, and management processes, because they are the only resource of information about whether they were treated with pride and regard or not . Their experiences often told about the organization that how well a hospital system is operating. Patients
Nurses, like other professions, gain the public’s trust through their competence, credibility and accountability (Davidson et al 2013). Competence builds on a foundation of basic clinical skills, scientific knowledge and moral development (Branson et al 2015). Supported by Branson et al (2015), a randomized controlled trial of
Trust is essential element in nurse-patient relationship and it has direct relationship to improve patient wellness. Nurse-patient trust relationship it can be established in long time or in short time it depend on meet the needs of the client, not the needs of the nurse and how the nurse responsible for establishing and maintaining boundaries with pateint. Elaborate During orientation to the Rashid Center for Diabetes and Research (Ajman) I note that the client is entering the room of doctor, educator with happy face and no singe of stress. Also I notes that all the staff nurse in the center they know everything about the patient for example, their background , disease process, even if the patient miss or did not came to his appointment they know which mean nurse they follow up their patient. I think the most important in this relation is trust, which is essential to nursing practice.
Finkelman, describes power as the ability to influence others and their decisions (2012). Based on Finkelman’s description of power I would consider myself as a powerful nurse. Often as a registered nurse, I have to utilize the power of persuasion through education and patient empowerment to convince and promoted healthy behavior changes to decrease re-hospitalizations. Furthermore, as an employee I am on a quality and improvement committee that meets monthly to identify ways the hospital can improve quality care, reduce cost, and implement evidenced bases cares/interventions. In comparison with my previous hospital employers it is my personal opinion that my employer is considered a safe place for nursing when it comes to patient to
Larson (1984) defines caring as the core, essence and distinguishing attribute of nursing. I believe that I possess the strength to care for others and behave in a caring manner. In the past I have shown my strength in this area of nursing care when looking after family members that have fallen victim to sickness. Whenever someone tells me that they are not feeling well, I immediately jump into action and try my best to make sure that they feel “cared for” .The feeling of pride and satisfaction I experience after caring for a person that is unwell is what originally made me choose nursing as a career. Caring is a basic attribute of human growth and development (Griffin 1983).
The bulk of the investigative studies examined were cross-sectional in nature as research was completed by means of vast hospital administrative data to detect connections amongst nurse stafﬁng ratios and patient outcomes. One study by Zhu et al. (2012) examined the connection of nursing practice on patient satisfaction which was an attainable positive result.
About 96% indicated they felt confident using the EHR system and 85% felt it was user friendly. However, more than half indicated that there were some interruptions while reporting patient care. An estimated 76% of nurses reported they believed the EHR system would have a positive effect on improving patient care over time. Approximately 54% reported they had alternative methods of recording information such as scrap pieces of paper and later transcribing it into the patient’s electronic chart (Moody et al., 2004). Consequently, the issue of usability comes into play and the study implicates that communication between EHR providers should not be limited to just physicians, but to nurses as
Informed consent mean the patient has been given the right information regarding their care, Mary falls into this capacity as she was give information regarding her care and she was able to choose (Wheeler, 2013). According to (Nice 2012) delivering high quality care should be at the heart of every care provider daily clinical practice. Good care is also connected with high staff satisfaction and good outcome for patient (Nice, 2012). Obtaining informed consent helps to ensure that people are not deceived or coerced into any decision making is very important regarding their. Nurses must also practise in line with the (NMC, 2015) code of conduct.
This paper is a critique of the research article titled, Hospital Nurses’ Lived Experience of Power. Currently there are 4.1 million licensed registered nurses in the United States, representing a potentially powerful workforce (as cited in Budden, Zhong, Moulton, & Cimiotti, 2013). The number of RN’s in the hospital setting indicates a need for understanding meaning and experience of power from the perspective of clinical nurses. Despite the awareness of the nursing workforce, power held by the nurse is an infrequent study. The purpose of the study was to explore hospital nurses’ lived experience of power, which focused on, “what is the lived experience of power to hospital clinical nurses; and what is the meaning of power to hospital clinical
I have informed my mentor about Mrs. A’s concerns and she was given comprehensive information about the support groups and organisations that are there to help her and her family during her admission (NICE, 2011). Besides, providing therapeutic communication to encourage the patient to give consent to the admission is an act of beneficence because it prevents causing harms and improves the patient’s wellbeing (Edwards, 2009). It was a good experience for me since I have learned the importance of communication as one of the fundamental aspects in nursing (Balzer Riley, 2000). I have learned that therapeutic communication works wonders. I was complimented by my mentor who boosted my confidence and encouraged me to continue doing better since provision of reassurance and honest compliment from the preceptor is a foundation for student development and independence (Ingwerson, 2014).
It is the compassion that is nurtured by nurses, PA’s, and physicians which transforms the clinical and overwhelming medical world into something more humanistic and comforting. Exhibiting integrity and respect towards patients is what allows them to feel secure in entrusting their lives to those nurses, PA’s, and physicians. This establishment of trust is integral to the medical system, and it can only happen when medical professionals make a daily, conscious commitment to treat every patient with compassion and integrity. For me, these characteristics are intertwined with my faith. Being true to my Seventh Day Adventist faith requires me to prioritize the very characteristics that are essential to the medical field.

There is a need for greater reimbursement for nurse staffing for health care organizations. Nurses make up the bulk of medical personnel and are the frontline caregivers and health care providers. I agree with many experts’ opinion that adequate nurse staffing results in favorable patient outcomes and must therefore be financially supported. Dunham-Taylor (2015), argues that “effective workforce management is a key factor contributing to organizational success” (Dunham-Taylor, 2015). Moreover, the author asserts that adequate nurse staffing leads to better patient outcomes, better reimbursement, positive patient satisfaction scores, greater workforce satisfaction, increase employee retention, financial success and organizational stability
NU 413 Week 9 Discussion Board Post student response to Katie-Lynn Fournier by Kathryn Moultrie Good afternoon Kathie, Enjoyed reading your post, and seeing how other organizations handle the operations of their facility and nursing departments. My biggest concern with improving quality care and patient safety issues in that, the responsibility is not ours alone, our Chief Nurse Executives (CNEs) and Director of Nursing (DON), and senior nursing management staffs to lead the journey Disch J. (2008). I find it overwhelming that the majority of the research literature (studies, surveys and reports believe nursing plays the pivotal role in changing the face of health care and improving quality care and patient safety. In order for the future of health care to change, changes must begin at the top with stakeholders, the hierarchy and nursing management, nurses as leaders within their organizations.
