A patient’s sickness which through right medication and the physician’s compassion, can be overcome and helped . In time, and with hard work, it would be my privilege to possess the responsibilities of a Physician Assistant in caring for life. This summer I had a chance of working under some doctors in India. On my first day as a volunteer, I was a bit nervous, unsure of what to expect. However, once I got ready and walked into the operation room, I knew medicine was the profession I was meant to pursue.
For this vSim assignment, I had to repeat the scenario three times before obtaining 100% on it, since I had forgotten about a few important steps when assessing my patient, and in my second try, I had forgotten to check the patient 's electronic health record even though I had already fixed my previous mistakes in the assessment. Three of the most important things I had to do differently in this scenario were to ask the patient about allergies to maintain patient safety before administering any drugs ordered, use the incentive spirometry to improve breathing and educate her about it since she had a hard time breathing due to pain, and educate the patient about wound care at the end before discharging her. Performing the procedures I missed in

Regular medical check-ups are vital for the human to be healthy and live a productive life. Hence, our university has organized this examination specifically for students. Upon completion of one of the annual body check-ups, I have realized that I have missed thorough gynecological examination. Firstly, I have visited our university doctor, and she directed me to the Republican Diagnostic Center by giving me a phone number of the Call center. My story starts with making an appointment by phone.
As a pre-medical student, I initially felt out of my league since the other volunteers were graduate education students. I was responsible for designing a summer reading program for fifteen children, ages five to nine and implementing my program at the Little Falls YMCA where the children were daily. I encountered many obstacles such as what material would be appropriate for each child, children who announced their dislike for reading, and the struggles of instituting a daily lesson. Despite these factors and my unfamiliar setting, I began to feel confident in myself as I thought of new projects to get the children to enjoy the program. Also, several of the children needed emotional support in addition to assistance with their reading, and a personal factor evolved in my relationship with the children.
When I went to the doctor who diagnosed me for what I really had I was diagnosed with Severe ADHD which means my brain works very fast and makes it so I don't stay focused on one thing. It is what made me so smart because I could work on multiple things at once. I had to try out different medicines and do lots of different types of testing to find the missing pieces. I went back to school and fished the year off and my teacher was in shock of how far Id come. I got A’s in all my classes that
In this First Clinical Practicum, it is incredible that I have spent 8 weeks to work in medical and surgical wards. Standing out of laboratory, all new things in the wards are curious to me so I am aggressive to explore and grasp every chance for study. Apart from many psychomotor skills I have learnt and applied, I found something I have to improve for my further nursing field. In this reflective journal, I would like to focus on one significant item which is communication. Kimberly B. Chapman (2009) mentioned that as healthcare providers try to accomplish more in less time, the relationships between patients and providers-and among partners-naturally suffer.
Therefore, the preventative measures must be applied whenever an invasive procedure is intended. Second, the inadequate patient management. The contributing factors that influence the patient management are numerous, here some
Hsm 541 (Week 6) You Decide Middlefield hospital served a variety of patients with the best care. However from the past couple years it has been having some problem due to the new big hospital in the city. Since the arrival of the new hospital in the area our hospital has been losing its patients and we are getting more of uninsured/underinsured patients. In order for me to improve our financial situation of the hospital, we need to work as a team and be competitive against the new hospital in town. As a CEO of Middlefield hospital, I will send out or email survey to all of our new patients and old patients to figure out the cores of our problem.
As a former student in M201/M202, I have to admit that I was a bit intimidated at the size of the ICD-10 CM/PCS coding books. However, as we began learning about the guidelines and rules to coding it all started to come together. Last year’s transition to ICD-10 for the United States, had required changes for all health care systems. With that being said, coders were now required to code more detailed information which makes it available for more frequent errors. Therefore, in this discussion I will explain two examples of minor errors that I had trouble with in M201/M202.
1. What problems did you encounter when handling the complaint? Whenever I received complaints, the problem is that the subordinates usually deny or come up with some explanations making it difficult to discuss it in a genuine manner. Sometimes even if we reprimand them for their mistakes it creates a very tense environment in the hospital and it also affects the quality of work. Also I need to find times to handle complaints patiently or else the situation gets angered and gets further complicated.
The physician assistant occupation truly began in 1965 when a considerable shortage of physicians brought forth a breakthrough. At this time there were also many corpsmen returning from the Vietnam War with adequate skills to access surgical conditions but without the formal education. A man by the name of Dr. Eugene Stead then created a program at Duke University to give these people formal training and education. By the time they finished their two-year fast-tracked program these individuals would be equipped to provide medical care to underserved populations and rural communities under the direction of a physician. For centuries nations have looked for ways to meet military, and public health needs, as well as providing care to rural and underserved areas where physicians did not exist.
Last year, my Osteopathic application was made in haste and was submitted as a back up plan to failing Allopathic applications. As a part of completing the primary application and also preparing for Osteopathic interviews, I discovered that the Osteopathic philosophy appeared to be a better fit for me. Shadowing an Osteopathic physician as well as an Allopathic physician has solidified this observation. Last year’s failed attempt to gain entry to medical school has been soul crushing and has forced me to consider other career paths. During this period, I have examined many options.
