Even though patients and medical assistant have a special bound there are boundaries that have to be observed. The medical assistant fulfills the rules and maintains a professional, friendly, simple and respectful
Patients need attention. Patients want doctors to take them seriously, to like them, to listen, and to acknowledge their emotions. When you give the patient attention it makes them feel validated and taking their concerns not consideration. The attention the caregivers provide helps build patient relationships. In my interview, sissy explained that the attention she got made her feel validated, her concerns were listened to and she was felt as if she were in good hands (S. Johnson, personal communication, February 5th, 2018).
Doctors and nurses should be considerate and kind to the patients by listening and attending to all their concerns. Teamwork is an important professional value that is vital in the provision of care centered on patients. A culture that is based on learning from previous mistakes and openness is fundamental in the provision of care and ensuring that patients are satisfied. In view of that, workers in the health sector should maintain honesty with the patients they are attending
However, I am aware that the beginning of effective leadership would be by developing a vision of the organization where a nurse leader serves. Coming up with a picture of what would be a future of excellence in delivering nursing care in the organization would be crucial in motivating and raising commitment among the other nurses. As a nurse leader, the vision that I would hold dear would be to ensure I have the capacity to make sure that the systems in place benefit individual needs of the patients in a manner that patients are always handled with respect and dignity while the work that nurses perform is respected and valued. For this to be met, there is a need for the nurse leader to assist the other nurses grasp the envisioned picture and remaining at the forefront in directing the others on where to go. Subsequently, I would want to be the kind of a nurse leader who can enable the staff to grasp the vision, to make sure the appropriate people assume the nursing roles and to model the behaviors that are desired of the other
The knowledge that I have attained now and my background in patient navigation will help me as a future oncology nurse practitioner, to manage the complex needs of cancer survivorship. I will be able to support my patient’s transition into their new way of life as effective transition management can translate into less hospitalization, lower health care cost and less physical, emotional, spiritual, social and financial stress to patients and their support system. Hope comes in many forms other than with the cure, it comes with control, relief, comfort; to a dying patient, it could mean living another day with their loved ones and

Over the course of their career, their roles have developed from health professionals who respond to requests to attend people suffering health crises to a healer, clinician, teacher and leader. Healing is a process of supporting another physically, mentally, and spiritually during their illness. Illness has a great impact on the patient’s wellbeing and in some worse cases, the patient’s life can be in danger, therefore leading them to feel helpless. As a healer, when Paramedics empathise, respect and display a genuine concern to help a distressed patient, they are seen by the community as a compassionate caregiver – a healer.
A team of specialists and care providers provide palliative care in an aim to control, improve patient quality of live and increase the functional and decision making among the patients (Medline). Palliative care seeks to attain personal satisfaction for both the patient and his or her family. Reduction of suffering, improvement of the patient quality of life and helping the patient and his/her family in decision making is the purpose of palliative care.

Adams, it is important to address all areas from a holistic standpoint. This would include psychosocial, environmental and medical interventions. While providing care it is important to remember Florence Nightingale’s goal of nursing is to “assist the patient to regain “vital powers” by meeting their needs, which in the end puts the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon.” (Smith & Parker, 2015). Nightingale believed that nurses contribute to restoring health in a direct and indirect way by the management of patient’s environment (Smith & Parker, 2015).

Compassion can be described as showing concern and being sympathetic to the people that are suffering. Patients go through the suffering due to their illnesses. A nurse has leave various comfort zones for them to ensure that they are fully engaged with whatever suffering that their patients are going through. In McNeill, Morrison, & Nouwen’s book of Compassion, “God’s compassion is not something abstract or indefinite, but a concrete, specific gesture in which God reaches out to us.” For Christian nurses, we are fully aware of what our patients are going through.
In my opinion, the psych techs and security guards provide the most genuine care to the patients. They are always in the dayroom or hallways socializing with the patients or participating in crafts with them. If I had a question about the patient, I asked the psyche techs as they knew most aspects of their lives. We attended two group sessions for the remainder of the
Through becoming a nurse I aspire to take my education in medicine and delegate my efforts to not only improving the medical status of my patients but also to improve the mental well being of them as well. My experience growing into a world where prime physical health was not an option, the opportunity to see how a staff of passionate nurses can contribute to the mental stability and growth of a patient was an honor and inspiration that drives my passion for this career choice. Also, over the last few years I have grown a particular interest in medical research and would love to take his passion with me to expand my interest and contribute to the extensive research program at
