How might the ANA code of ethics and the Nurse Practice Act help to guide Josepha? The legal and ethical issue that Josepha has to use is. He has to know how to discuss the issue he has with the higher or manager of the head nurse. It is good to communicate the issue you have with the managers instead of felling bad thing about them. As I read the “Team STEPPS makes strides for better communication”, some of the tools like; (SBARQ) is used in many organizations, especially during patient hand-offs.
They educate parents one-to-one or in groups and promote breastfeeding.

Nurses are critical for promoting health in the society. The profession is highly flexible, since they specialize in diverse operations in the medical field. Registered nurses, for instance, are responsible for the administration of medicine and inoculations to patients (American Nurses ' Association, 2000). Additionally, these professionals observe, record, and enlighten doctors of any changes in a patient’s health. Nurses interpret and evaluate diagnostic examinations to determine an individual’s condition, as well as making the necessary adjustments in patient treatment plans on their health progress.
Nurse Practitioner are registered Nurses who serve as primary and specialty health care providers under a physician. Much like a geriatrician, Gerontological Nurse Practitioners work with elderly patients, diagnosing illness, conducting exams, and prescribing medication. (“Geriatric Nurse…”). These type of nurses work at nursing homes, with home healthcare services and in hospice facilities, or run your own private practice. A geriatric nurse work with finding illnesses and diseases, prescribing medication and therapy, routine check-ups and screenings, etc…etc.
Assessment is a fundamental component of any nurse’s role. However, from what I observed today it seems particularly vital to the PACU nurse. While they do provide interventions, the majority of PACU nurses’ time is spent assessing their patients and documenting their findings. Patients in the PACU have undergone the significant stressor of surgery under general anesthesia and they have the potential for very serious complications. It is up to the PACU nurse to observe if the patient is declining and act quickly and appropriately.
World Health Organization defines nursing as: “Nursing encompasses autonomous and collaborative care of individuals of all ages, families, groups and communities, sick or well and in all settings. It includes the promotion of health, the prevention of illness, and the care of ill, disabled and dying people” (WHO, 2018). This means that nurses care for both those who are sick and unable to care for themselves, healthy people, and the dead. One of the duties of the nurse is to educate the patient and public. As such nurses also go into the communities to create awareness on recent developments and how to manage our environment to prevent the inhabitants from becoming sick.
4. PHYSIOLOGIC MONITORING SYSTEM Monitoring patient and having understanding of physiological parameters is important to every nurse, so with the aid of physiologic monitoring system the job is made easy to be able to offer high quality. Normal and abnormal variants in parameters and vital signs from the system help the nurse to intervene promptly and appropriately. It helps the nurse to tailor parameters of the alarms to meet the specific needs of each patient. Continuous monitoring of physiological function help guide management decision and when to make therapeutic interventions.
Introduction A perioperative nurse is a nurse who is responsible of taking care of surgical patients prior to, during and after surgery. These tasks include attending to their physical, logistical and emotional problems. Perioperative nurses report on everything that transpires during their surgical care, including meticulous recording of vital signs, diagnostic tests and laboratory results, surgical dressings and drugs. In addition to all this, they are responsible for the overall assessment and any warnings about the change in status, which to the physician are crucial. The perioperative nurse is an integral part of a surgical team, and as such, the role it plays is crucial to the health and welfare of their patients.
Rehabilitation nurses, whether novice or expert, search for and use current evidence, and supportive technology to deliver optimal client and family-centered care (Stephanie, Kristen, Cynthia, Pamala, Jill, Wendy, Christine, David, 2015, p.35). According to the association of rehabilitation nurses, “the role of the nurse is to assist clients in adapting to an altered lifestyle while providing a therapeutic environment for client’s and their family’s development”. Rehabilitation nurses identify client and caregiver health and wellness needs, including facilitators and barriers to health improvement, and integrate community care services that manage chronic disease and support healthier time (Smeltzer, 2010)”. Health promotion through primary prevention, as well as preventing complications for those with existing disabilities is essential to the role of the rehabilitation nurse (ARN, 2014a,b). The rehabilitation staff nurse designs and implement treatment strategies that are based on scientific nursing theory related to self-care and promote physical, psychosocial, and spiritual health (ARN, 2014).
Introduction In this paper, the roles of specified nurses in various care delivery models are discussed. The discussion is as outlined by the charge nurse who is on duty that day when an LPN (Licensed practical nurse), two RNs, (Registered nurse) and a nursing assistant (NA) are present. The roles of these nurses tend to vary depending on the model that is being utilized to deliver patient care. Furthermore, the models utilized for delivery of patient care have advantages and disadvantages that are also incorporated here. Nurses roles in different care delivery strategies The various strategies of nursing care delivery are; functional model, primary nursing, nurse case management and team nursing (Yoder-Wise, 2016).
The data I collect to answer the question, “Is there a relationship to the number of hours a Registered Nurse (RN) works and patient safety?” will be data that contain several variables. Some of these variables will include: The RNs sleep/wake patterns, their mood, their amount of caffeine intake, hours worked, specific time of day, any overtime worked, etc. These variables will be submitted on the days that each RN works. In order to summarize a logical answer that has substance, I will need to use a data analysis technique that will be able to account for the numerous variables associated with the data collected. The linear programing also goes on to say that it aides in decision making about how to best use limited resources.
2014). LPN or practical nursing is, “the performance for compensation of selected acts for the promotion of health and in the care of persons who are ill, injured, or experiencing alterations in normal health processes.” (Scheidt, L. 2014). All nursing care by an LPN should be giving under the supervision of a registered nurse. APRN is a registered nurse with advanced education and additional training from a nationally accredited program (Scheidt, L. 2014). The nurse manager needs to understand the different scopes of practice of their employees.
Clinical nurse leaders are trained to look at the big picture of the patient 's care (Rankin 2015). He or she evaluates patient care from admission to home transition, and everything in between. Whether it be care at the bedside with the clinical nurse, collaborating with other colleagues, or taking on a social worker 's perspective, "the use of the clinical nurse leader role can have marked impact on current healthcare" (Rankin 2015). References Baernholdt, M., & Cottingham, S. (2011, March). The Clinical Nurse Leader - new nursing role with global implications.
Week Nine Initial Discussion Post NURS6053, N-20 Throughout my working career as a registered nurse (RN) I have experienced various types of leaders. The purpose of this discussion is to talk about a particular manager and their leadership style. Also, I will discuss the characteristic that I will and will not integrate into my leadership style. Leaders are an integral component in the healthcare system. An effective manager must be able to integrate leadership skills with the ability to carry out management functions (Marquis & Huston, 2015, p. 48).
Volunteering for leadership positions can improve a variety of transferable skills, such as communication, management, and leadership skills. As an anesthesiologist, you will have to manage an anesthesia team of assistants and nurses. Being the group leader enables you to make decisions and assign roles based on a member’s strength and weakness. For instance, if a nurse wasn’t accurate in converting measurements, but had hospitality skills. A group leader would assess their skills and determine that the best role for that person would be to monitor and take care of the patient.
