Nurse have to remember to leave personal problems at home and never discussed them with patients (Shohani & Zamanzadeh, 2017, pp. 350-356). The goal is to provide high standards of practice and best care possible at all times. The nurse needs to provide a non - bias high-quality care to the patients of all ages, sizes, colors, races and cultural backgrounds. Her job is to see the patient as a unique individual without applying personal judgment or opinion (Shohani & Zamanzadeh, 2017, pp.
Every nursing, in order to consider the profession must have an understanding of at least three of the five professional values, in my opinion. These values consist of altruism, autonomy, human dignity, integrity and social justice (Taylor 96). Beginning with the professional value of Altruism, the believe in or practice and self concern for the well-being of others (96). I believe that in order to be the best nurse you can be for your patients, you must understand the concept of altruism. As a nurse, your profession is to take care of people, if you do not know the professional value of altruism than you cannot possibly understand how important it is to care about the wellbeing of your patient.
The nurse should participate in the care of baby k .As a nurse, we needs to give a dignified care for the baby and family members. In the nursing code of ethics, Fowler (2015) describe provision 1 as “The nurse in all professional relationship, practice with compassion and respect for the inherent dignity, worth and uniqueness of every individual, unrestricted by considerations of social and economic status, personal attributes, and the nature of health problems.”(P.1)This nurse code of ethics obliged us to give good care with dignity regardless of age or health condition. In the same manner nurse should participate in full in care of baby
PART A: DIGNIFIED CARE IN NURSING: Dignity; “the state or quality of being worthy of honour or respect.” (Oxforddictionaries.com, 2016). Nurses must respect patient dignity because they have a duty of care to each client. Without respecting this, a patient may feel they have not received the correct standard of care, which may prolong their recovery time. Dignified care in nursing practice means delivering a service to patients or clients in a way that respects their rights as human beings. Nurses have a responsibility to encourage patients to be as independent as possible.
A person is in need of nursing care when they experience any deficiency of health, in the internal or external environment. Nursing is actively caring for the physical, mental, emotional, and social state of a person, and their perception of their external environment. Personal Philosophy Nursing is the art of holistically caring for a human being. Humans want to be cared for in order to maintain healthiness, but interaction with the environment can change their health status due to many different variables. The act of nursing helps people to achieve this goal comfortably and appropriately.
It states that nurses should exhibit professional behaviour and practice in line with nursing standards to deliver safe, proficient and ethical care (SNB, 2011). As a nurse, our principle duty of care to the client is to make sure that they are in the safe hands of proficient and ethical nurses. Patients entrust their health into our hands when they come to the hospital to receive treatment, therefore we, as nurses, need to be responsible and answerable for our actions so as maintain the trust of clients. Scrivener (2011) mentions that nurse owe the patient the responsibility to perform the task proficiently and skilfully, furthermore be accountable for doing the task. Therefore being the staff nurse in-charge, the RN in the above case study is still held responsible and accountable for the care of her patient even though she had passed on the task to another person.
During a health assessment, a nurse may become aware that a patient is lacking information that may help improve his condition. This provides the nurse with an opportunity to impart this information before he is discharged. (Oguejiofo, 2008). There are eight critical characteristics that a nurse should use in their final summary of any symptoms the client has. The first characteristic is location is interprets the point from which the pain originates from.
First impressions are made and these judgements can greatly affect how a client perceives a nurse (Patrick, 2013). Through this initial assessment, the nurse can obtain information that is crucial in providing the client with effective holistic care. Nursing assessment framework tools are used to help the nurse obtain accurate information about the patient’s wants and needs. This initial assessment based on subjective and objective data, helps to determine the patient’s actual problems and potential problems (Weber & Kelley, 2013). An assessment is carried out to obtain objective data and a physical baseline of the patient on admission.
Confidentiality is “keeping personal information private related to the physical, psychological, social health of clients, and any information collected during providing nursing services” (CNO, 2009, p.7). In everyday life, nurses attend to ethics by following the rules, in which they carry their daily interaction, including how they approach and reflect on their ethical commitment they made with their patients (Stamler, Yiu, & Dosani, 2016, p.90). Based on the case scenario, it is not a dilemma as ethical dilemma arises when moral claims conflict with each other (Stamler et al., 2016, p.90). In this case scenario, the information was not shared with the friend, and the information was kept confidential based on
The study of principles of ethics equips nurses with core values in nursing which serve as a foundation of nursing practice. Goodness or rightness, justice or fairness, truth telling or honesty and freedom or autonomy. However, the application of these principles during care in a specific situations is often problematic since there may be disagreement on what the right way to act in a specific situation. The only way is to ensure that you have consent in everything you do for the patient. Nurses of all cadres without the application of ethical principles we would be in very big problem because they act as a guide to what we
