Brione Garrett Single Day Surgery Clinical Ashley Tyler/ Mark Potvin Today I got the opportunity to go to the single day surgery clinic for a clinical rotation. I arrived at about six fifty to be a little early. When I arrived, I received a badge to be able to get through the building since it’s a locked unit, which means that you must have badge access to be able to get into the operating rooms or any areas that aren’t patient rooms. When I walked in the nurses were doing their daily huddle. That when they talk about how many surgeries they will have that day, and if they are missing any nurses or doctors.
Management of Care Case Study Josepha is working on a medical surgical unit with three other RNs and one LPN. There is also a male and a female patient care tech. Josepha has been a nurse for four months, and after completing two months of orientation she takes a full assignment as a registered nurse. Josepha feels that the assignments she receives are not always fair, as she tends to get the most challenging clients. In addition, she is most frequently assigned any change of shift admissions.
enforced my therapeutic communication within the healthcare setting. A non-therapeutic bias I've come to realize is that instead of talking to the patient, I communicated to the nurse instead. I'm not sure if that was out of nervousness on my first day or if it's because the long-term patients tend not to respond at times. Whatever the case may be, I'm going into next week with this knowledge and knowing I want to correct this issue before it becomes an issue to myself and my
Girls, Interrupted is a book by Susanna Kaysen. This book is about an eighteen year old girl who after seeing her therapist, gets put in a taxi and taken to McLean. Here she finds herself checking into a mental institution. The book talks about incidents that occur there for the next two years of her life. Throughout the book we learn about not only her mental illnesses but also the illnesses of the other patients.
During one of my clinical experiences on an extremely busy unit I was watching nurses communicating with each other during a morning report. It looked like it was going to be a busy shift as they were working short. I was on that team and they asked me if I could straight catheterize a patient who has not voided for six hours as soon as possible. I was excited to help them out and to perform my first catheterization. Prior to that shift I had read over that procedure and felt ready to do it.
This critical incident involved a first time mother who gave birth at pre temp- 35weeks. Baby stayed in hospital for two weeks before being discharged home. After about two days of being home, mother called her health visitor, the student‘s practice teacher to inform her that baby was having breathing difficulties. Health visitor advised Lilly take the baby to A&E straight away which she did. Baby stayed in hospital for a further 7days before being discharged.
My nursing experience began in July of 2005, when I began working at Kaiser Permanente as a certified medical assistant. As a medical assistant (MA), the MA can do something as minor as checking someone’s weight, to administering immunizations under the supervision of the LVN or the physician. The things I did over the seven years as a MA, was limited and I began feeling complacent and wanted to do more with my career. I continued my education with the assistance of the company I worked for, and received my LVN in 2012. There, I transitioned to a department that is considered a high-risk perinatal unit.
My First Patient Nursing school allowed me to experience many meaningful moments in clinical from seeing a birth and being part of the happiest moment of families to witnessing the hardest goodbyes to love ones. The experience that stands out the most out of all of the interaction with patient is when I met my very first patient. My very first clinical day at the hospital during my first semester of nursing school, I got to see what I had only heard about or read about during lecture, but perhaps never seen or experience through anyone I know. I got to see a patient who was severely confused. This patient had what medically is known as “delirium”, although I cannot recall exactly what other medical problem this patient had, but I can
When I was eight years old, my mom became paralyzed from the waist down. She was moved from hospital to hospital for one year before getting discharged and coming home. After seeing my mom being dependent on medical care for the rest of her life, my interest in medicine began to grow. I used to watch when travel nurses and physical therapists would come to my house to provide her with medical care. I have experienced various procedures such as flushing a port
They laid her on my chest for 2 minutes then took her away. She was rushed to the nursery to get put on oxygen. She was having a little trouble. She stayed in the nursery for 2 days, then the nurses finally brought her to me. Those where the hardest 2 days of my life, she was with me for 8 months.
I was given the privilege to shadow Kerry Pullman, RN on the Med Surge/Telemetry unit at Liberty Hospital. Kerry has been an RN for two years after four years as a certified nurse aid and 3 years as a licensed nurse. Kerry has been working on the med surge/ telemetry unit for almost a year after working in long term care, primary care, urgent care, orthopedics and surgery. When asked Kerry stated the hardest part of being a new nurse was “old nurses” she said that often the old nurses will “eat their young”. We started the day by getting report on Kerry’s patients from the previous shift then going over the patients charts to make sure we had all the information we needed for her patients to provide the best care possible.
However, a serious of avoidable and unfortunate events caused by my doctor and nurses lead me to have a horrifying experience. I went through a nightmare before I could hold my little angel. At first, the hospital took three days to admit me. I was told by my doctor to go to the hospital when the contractions were 5 minutes apart. Four days before my due date, the contractions started.
