According to Alison DeNisco in her book Classroom Canines she says that,"On any given day in New Jersey's Randolph Township Schools, one of five certified therapy dogs may sit with a student during a counseling session or help in a lesson for preschoolers with special needs. These canines are specially trained so they do not distract the other children. Therapy dogs can also help patients in hospitals who suffer from a variety of illnesses. In hospitals, most therapy dogs are tiny so they fit in the bed along with the patient. Sometimes patients suffer from depression if they have been in the hospital a very long time.

To become an orthopedic surgeon, the physician must now overcome the next obstacle along the path….residency and specialization. For a physician to specialize in general surgery alone, he must complete five to six years of residency. Residency is where the physician is training in a specified area of medicine and making the important decisions regarding patient care. In residency, doctors work many hours and are on call most of the time. According to Dr. Heller, you don’t “get much sleep during residency, but most of us were young, energetic, and passionate about what [they] were doing, so [they] survived” (77).
I work closely with Medical nurse and doctors, as well as psychiatric nurses and doctors. This experience has given me the ability to learn what mindfulness practices works for me, in order for me to be able to continue to service my clients, without become too overwhelmed. There is still much for me to learn before I can actually obtain my MSW, but with my coursework and current experience, I feel that I will successfully complete my goals.

I worked with children of all ages - from 1 to 14 years, with various diseases and causes for their hospital stay. The diseases vary; some are very serious, even deadly, while other children come to the hospital just for a general check up. The situation at the homes of the children also varies – some come from orphanages and others from loving families who accompany them to the hospital. Why is helping other people my passion? It is hard to explain, but essentially I want to be useful to the society, especially to the children who are in desperate need of attention.
First of all we have the Amedisys hospice physician, which treat the patients for their chronic illnesses when in need. We have the Registered Nurses, which give the medications and manages it to control the pain that are needed for the patients; also we have a 24/7 on call services for Hospice. We have social workers who documents the patients evaluation that determines if the patient is still eligible for hospice or not; and also we have the chaplains that’s there for their “Bereavement”. And last but not least is the Hospice Aide, which is my Job Title. I am the one that does most of the work, but the last in order; I document the patients daily routines, meaning their wounds, their skin tears, their personal care and promoting compassionate dignity and affirms quality of life for the patient, family members, and their loved
Working only about 5 hours a day and 3 hours of massaging is a recommendation from experienced professionals. The strain of giving a massage can wear on your hands, wrists, fingers, upper arms, and lower back from grinding deep into the muscle to work out crinks and knots. The work hours are also split between cleaning the work space after rubbing creams and antibiotics into the clients back. Keeping up with a little paperwork and doing laundry is also part of this job. Another few tidbits about what I may be doing in the future, are the facts that most massage therapists get to retire around the age of 30-40 years old because of the physical strength required to properly work out another 's muscle strains.
It boosts their confidence in seeking various kinds of needs because they can obtain it in one place at an institution they trust. 5. I have relatives who have only used south Asian home remedies any time they are sick. I’m sure they would prefer a doctor who would be familiar with these remedies and advise them accordingly when helping to treat them. This is just ONE EXAMPLE of the potential need to incorporate cultural competency into healthcare.

Overcoming obstacles and improving myself through clinical experience, I learned of other essential qualities needed for success in the field. My greatest time of growth was during my junior residency in internal medicine. Working closely with physicians and developing a rapport with patients, I greatly enjoyed experiencing several areas of the field, from outpatient medicine to ICU to CCU. While the days were long and demanding, I left each night knowing that I had helped relieve my patients’ illness. That’s the reason I am only applying to Internal Medicine as my career; I am the type of person who has always had an acute awareness of other people’s suffering, which has led me to be an empathetic and caring physician.
Mifflin-Dunder Regional has private patients and public patients. For the public patients, all funding is provided by government. Mifflin-Dunder Regional is likely to make no profit if they underestimate the treatment days for patients. Hence, analyzing existing data and making estimations about bed days are crucial. The data of different illnesses such as treatment methods, treatment durations, the frequent occurrences in every year and the doctors that in charge of treatment should be recorded before analyzing and making decisions.
The first learning objective that is relevant to this practice experience is “BNUR 4.2 Individualised Client Assessment and Care Decisions”. Hoarding disorder is a relatively new diagnosis in the DSM-5 so assessment protocols and policies may not yet be standardised in hospital settings such as the suicide risk assessment. Assessing the patient’s environment during their hospital stay, and seeking out information about assessment tools will impact care decisions that are employed by the nurse. S.W. showed insight about his hoarding behavior so he would have been a good candidate for referral to a hoarding specific cognitive behavioural therapist or a life skills coach to address the independent living difficulties after parents passed away.
I completed the quality and safety checklist at five patients’ bedsides. Overall my fellow classmates did a good job at keeping the environment and their patients safe. There were only two things on the checklist that I had to intervene and express my safety concerns, and that was putting a sign outside the door for patients who are at risk for falls, and labeling the white board in patients’ room. The first thing I did was look through the charts of the patients to see which patients were on universal, level 1 (L1), or level 2 (L2) fall risk precautions. Before entering each patients’ room, I made sure those that were on L1 and L2 fall precautions the sign was showing outside the door.
