When I decided to enroll in becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) last 2009, I know that I would be able to deal with different kinds of people and be able to be part of their healing process during their stay in the healthcare institution. Today, as I become a part of the health team, I learned a lot of things. First is being able to know how to communicate and work with different kinds of people may it be our patient or a coworker. In my every day shift at hospitals and nursing homes, I was able to meet people from different countries with diverse culture. My effective communication as part of the healthcare team was developed for me to be able to know how to talk to them effectively.
I also learned about wellness checks that are conducted with each patient. The wellness checks helps the providers identify the health status of each patient. Furthermore, this week I have been reconnecting with patients, that I conducted care plans with, through follow up phone calls. The people that I have been able to communicate with have made progress toward their goals. For instance, one patient that had an issue with housing was able to use the resources that I provided to connect with a program that helps with food and shelter.
Commander and Board Certified Clinical Nurse Specialist of an Inpatient Operations Squadron that included: Intensive Care Unit, Multi-Surgical Unit, Labor & Delivery, Post-Partum, Anti-partum and Behavioral Health Unit. The squadron was a combination of military, civilian and VA employees. I incorporated the use of evidence-based research and treatment plans/protocols in all departments to improve the efficiency of nursing practice. I directly advised the Group Commander, Chief of Medical Services, Chief Nurse Executive, Patient Safety, and Quality Services daily. I daily enforced Unit Effectiveness Inspection standards and The Joint Commission Standards.
Clinical experience was meaningful and learned many things about some specific patients. In the morning I attended some call lights, did some diaper changed, and helped pass out trays. I also help fed Mrs. M.S by bringing to the dining room and fed her. Throughout I maintain professionalism and provided caring. Midday I was with Physical Therapy and Speech Therapy.
That made a difference. As mentioned by Gorman (2008), nurse responds accurately and with empathy to patient. Therefore, all nursing activities such as medication administration, wound dressing changes went smoothly. Therefore, this Patient was satisfied, became less anxious and more
EHR 's are beneficial to all healthcare staff members in any office. An EHR system has many tools to help keep the healthcare providers run smoothly, and reduce errors. Also, there are many other things you can do in an EHR system to help everyone. Things like; looking at lab tests, scheduling appointments, and of course billing claims. However, every healthcare provider working with an EHR system should properly train the staff so everyone knows how to use it correctly.
It is good to have effective communication within the adult social care setting as communication is used every day. It is used to encourage our services users to perform tasks, either verbally or physically. It is used to document what has been done ready for the next worker to take over. It allows us to work as a team. It allows us to provide a good service to the best of our ability.
Since the first time I met with the patient, I have noticed this patient has made progress. The patient was proactive in the hospital by booking appointments for her husband to see potential apartments. The patient was supportive to her family and assisted them in whatever way she
My work environment is in skilled nursing where we are task oriented and staff must have the knowledge and flexibility to adjust to a rapidly changing environment that involves not only our residents but also their immediate and sometimes extended families. Due to the nature of elder healthcare and the increasing acuity of those being admitted, staff requires an extended body of knowledge and skills from the management of a patient’s rehabilitation to death and dying.

I have also learned the importance of team work among all staff members when trying to reach patient goals and outcomes. Helping each other out and having effective communication is essential for optimal patient
