I am now sufficiently fast in reading patient medical records as well as being able to recognise and interpret medical information. Through this task, I definitely learn a valuable skill and enhance my medical knowledge which would be beneficial for my professional career especially if I become a hospital pharmacy intern. It was also a good chance for me to have a chat with pharmacists in Ipswich hospital to learn more about a life of a clinical pharmacist. 2. What are some big obstacles you have had to overcome to get to where you are today?
My high school courses consist of advanced placement courses and courses that are geared towards my interests. While I believe in achieving the most and being challenged, I also want to learn things that genuinely interest me. Learning to me comes easier if I am intrigued by the information. Ever since eighth grade, I have been interested in the medical field. I have always wanted to help people.
Description: The incidents occurred while carrying out certain intervention on my assigned client in the unit with my clinical instructor. It involves the removal of a foley catheter and an IV.tubing on my patient which was due according to the protocol of the hospital.Although my primary nurses wanted to carry out the procedure with me assisting her,my instructor suggest that I do it while she supervises me since it was my first time. I was quite excited to learn and acquire this new squill that I forgot to prepare adequately for it. Critical reflection: I was upset that I couldn’t recall the name of the equipments needed to carry out the intervention as well as the implications for the patient aochen I was asked to do so by my instructor.
I have always, like my dad, wanted to major in something in the medical field. Another reason why I want to become a nurse practitioner is that I have always had a passion about helping others. With this job I can communicate with the patients in their times of intense physical and mental sufferings. For example, If my patients are scared of getting a surgery, I could educate them that surgery is not always a bad choice. I would explain the procedure of the operation in a way that they could fully comprehend.
Saying this, although there is a variety of issues amongst the medical community when concerning injustice, it’s our duty as future health care professionals to make a change. The experience I went through only made me want to help sooner rather than later which increases my passion for medicine. Helping people is what I want to do, but making an actual difference is the real outcome that I
Verbally Verbal communication has always been a struggle for me; I must admit that I am better at expressing my thoughts and ideas when I write them down on paper. Before attending college, I typically did not think before I spoke and I did not sugar coat my words, which now I realize how this has affected some of my relationships with people and how I had unintentionally hurt people in the past. I find myself still learning and recognizing that this is an area that I anticipate will become more natural to me as I become a more competent nurse. Since this part of communication has been a struggle to me, therapeutic communication was also a struggle when it came to speaking to patients, staff, and taking nursing exams. Through every nursing
One of the first times she went to the bathroom but didn 't go but when she was done asked for that treat or candy, but her mom did her mother duty and checked, and she really didn 't go and use the restroom, so she did not receive the treat which she didn 't understand why because she went to the bathroom. Just a little while later she used her little potty training potty and after both her mom and dad gave her verbal praise and she got to pick a treat out of the jar. I did a follow up with the family to see how the potty training is going and they explained that it is going very well and they are happy with the
The field of medicine and healthcare has always appealed to me from a young age. Specifically, I became fascinated with the causes of illnesses, an interest that fueled my need to research and satisfy my curiosity. Throughout my academic path, I have focused on getting closer to my goals and have worked diligently. Indeed, my passion for becoming a Physician Assistant (PA) was solidified after I gained experience shadowing a physician and became a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). I believe that becoming a PA is the right path for me as it would provide me with the opportunity to serve those in need, and also allow for patient interaction and connection.
Matthew Gafrick Putman Hour 5 15 November 2016 Argument Paper Ethics is the standard form of right and wrong, what others can or can't do. Ethics helps people to not commit bad deeds, and it helps them to live up to standards. In the book Flowers for Algernon two doctors need to make an ethical decision. It's on weather or not to preform an operation on an unintelligent man named Charlie Gordon. Charlie Gordons doctors did not act ethically when they preformed the surgery to make him smart; because they took advantage of his condition and failed to share the possible consequences to Charlie.
Language is incredibly important, in my perspective. To me if one speaks my language, I am more likely to trust them and give my attention compared to those talking in a language I am unfamiliar with or do not understand. Also, when an interpreter is not available during the workday, the patient(s) should have the right to have someone speak to them in their native tongue if it is not English. I think it would be most impactful if the translation was through their own doctor, nurse or other provider, rather than a person such as a translator that speaks over the phone, because the provider is the most familiar with their case and ask the questions in a better way. From personal experience, using a translator phone with the translator not in the same room to communicate with patients and their families, it is difficult and involves repeating yourself and causes frustration throughout visit for the patient as they want help, justly, but it is a longer process.
