I have realized from the diagnostic test that my personal insight toward my self-values in all the three disciplines are not satisfactory. In personal legacy discipline, it has shown me that i don’t have a clear idea about what I want my legacy to be. I need to focus in how I can be the best model for my co - workers through my actions and beliefs. For example, in the hospital it is not enough to provide patient care for patients, but if the nurse provides respect for patient’s integrity and privacy, she would be a good example for new staff in maintaining ethical environment while doing patient care. In Mindfulness disciple, “all four questions probing on self-awareness about your values and the values you live at work”
One person might agree that nursing teamwork is the foundation of a medical setting, while another person might say that nursing teamwork is a waste of time and working alone is the best experience. Both negative and positive concepts of nursing teamwork have been experienced by me in different medical and nursing settings. I later realized that having no teamwork makes every step difficult for you and for others. Teamwork with strategies such as proper communication, respect for others, and cooperation can benefit the whole medical and nursing community. Therefore, nursing teamwork is imperative to help manage the patient’s needs and fulfill our nursing duties to bring no harm to
Hence, the hygienist had to ensure a duty of care to the patients with her quality services. Conclusion In spite of knowing that such health issue may happen to the patients by using the anterior sickle instrument, she continued to do the same. This is an unethical practice, that reflects complete dishonesty to her profession. Moreover, the reaction from the dentist employer was not proper. The dentist employer did not provide an immediate solution to this issue.
Moreover, I believe that nursing leadership is critical to the lives of nurses. Thus, it is essential that a nurse leader is consistent and knowledgeable on ways to facilitate the development of nursing practice environments that enable nurses to deliver quality nursing care. For such an environment to be met, it is my belief that I will not only be required to advocate quality care but also need to communicate articulately, be a mentor, a visionary, a mentor and a role
If you look out for the wellbeing of you patient and express what is best for your patient then you are actively practicing the value of altruism in the field of nursing. Next, the professional value of autonomy. Autonomy is the personal value of one over themselves, free form control of others (96). An autonomous person is one who acts intentionally, with understanding and without the influences of others opinions on them. As a nurse it is important to know when to give your input and when to hold off.
By fulfilling patient needs and not doing anything to put them in harm is an example of following a policy. These policies serve as a resource for doctors, nurses, and other staff. Additionally, the caregiver must understand exactly what the patient needs at the time; they also know what procedures to assist patients with. Code-switching is extremely crucial when communicating with convalescents; using medical terminology with patients can be very frustrating for them. To give a clear example, a nurse would tell a patient to take the medicine before meals, rather than telling them to take the medicine “a.c.” This knowledge that a nurse must possess is indispensable, it serves as a form of admiration, coherence, and reassurance for the most
Cases of airing concern by the nurse might be risky for their career, but the risk of airing such concerns do not eliminate the obligation held by a nurse to address life threatening issues faced by a patient. A nurse is obligated to speak and act in the ways which will provide sufficient support for the safety of the patient. In the situation addressed, the nurse is unable to assist since the effort to air their view and concern to advocate for the patient is shut by the management and the physician in
While undertaking the nursing process, they have the privilege to access the health consumers’ personal information. It is the responsibility of nurses to keep it confidential or disclose only the relevant information when required by law or if the person is at risk or a child is involved. It incorporates the fact that the nurses should not be taking advantage of the vulnerable health consumers such as children, older, frail and mentally ill people. It is the duty of nurses to encourage the health consumers to advocate for themselves when they are not happy about the care being delivered. It is also the duty of the nurses to create awareness about the professional relationship of health consumers with health practitioners.
Hence, many healthcare workers provide care to patients in a way that is acceptable from medical viewpoints along with what is socially acceptable from past patient experiences. Likewise, individual experiences also construct how a nurse cares for patients in ways that are deemed normal and acceptable. For example, spirituality and spiritual rituals can be perceived as significant components in the healing process (Hemberg, & Vilander, 2017). As a nurse, with a strong Christian background as a former Mennonite, healing practices that my culture embraces include anointing one’s head with holy oils, large prayer groups, and fasting as spiritual ways to combat bodily ailments. My cultural background views this physical body as a weak entity with the belief that a person’s physical body may decline and die, but the spirit lives on forever.
Feldshuh includes Douglas’s description towards the importance of the study to signify the ease of justifying a cause; however it is intentional that Doctor Douglas does not reveal the true purpose of the study to the patients. Douglas has effectively begun dehumanizing the patients, he does not think the patients as being capable of understanding the importance of the study, and the risks associated. No efforts towards discussing the study or treatment are made with the patients, and Nurse Evers by supporting the study begins compromising her oath and her position as a nurse, as indicated by her
If Evita in fact recognizes that Eric has died from a different cause then SIDS, it is wrong for Evita to not go ahead and report this knowledge to the physician. It is unprofessional for Evita to allow the parents to disclose such critical information to her and then have them witness her essentially covering for them to the physician. As a social worker I feel you face many difficult situations where you may feel bad about making your client’s situation worse, but you always need to stay professional and be able to maintain your agreement to the code of
