Professional practice reflects autonomy when the nurse respects patient’s rights to make decisions about their health care” (Taylor, 1997). At the nursing home, I witnessed many of the nurses discuss with the residents what they wanted to do about certain situations. Autonomy honors the fact that it is the patient and the families right to make certain decisions about health care. Nurses also are constantly making sure that they can provide their patients with the best information to help them make a more successful choice about their health care (Taylor
Patient’s safety is an essential aspect of nursing care that should be part of the culture of a nurse as she cares for her patients. This requires that the nurse behavior should be directed towards achieving total safety 0f the patients throughout hospitalization. It is imperative that a nurse leader should adequately check the safety culture that is in place in her working environment and articulates a strategy to guide personal approach as they work to improve the safety
1.3 is to provide care regardless of client’s gender, religion, age, health and socio-economic status. The nurse thinks the patient is old and weak because of the patient’s diagnosis so that the patient couldn’t refuse any care or treatment that was do for her. Value statement 5 is to provide care in a responsible and accountable manner. 5.2 is to ensure that the safety of their clients is not jeopardized by commission or omission of any nursing care activity. It is the nurses’ responsibility to ensure patients are safety at all times.
Health Nurses need to emphasize preventative health, cure for diseases, and health promotion. Nursing Virginia Henderson defined nursing as: “The unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (or to peaceful death) that he would perform unaided if he had the necessary strength, will or knowledge.” (Vera,2014) Henderson states that “The nurse is the only twenty four hour worker. We are the only people that will say we stay with you. They are the people that will do for others what they will do for themselves. They have the strength, will, and knowledge.
Dealing with families of patients with gentleness and kindness, realizing they are going through a stressful situation is also a duty of nurses. Pursuing a nursing career is taking responsibility to provide the finest care regardless of the patient’s age, race, religion, sex, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or their past. Keeping up to date on education, new processes, policies and keeping informed about new laws and regulations in healthcare, so outstanding healthcare can be administered is a nurses obligation. As a nurse, you have undertaken a responsibility to provide people the finest quality care that can possibly receive. It is a nurses’ duty to follow the code of ethics, to act safely, provide ethical care regardless of personal feelings about the patient or the reason they are in your care.
The nurse should participate in the care of baby k .As a nurse, we needs to give a dignified care for the baby and family members. In the nursing code of ethics, Fowler (2015) describe provision 1 as “The nurse in all professional relationship, practice with compassion and respect for the inherent dignity, worth and uniqueness of every individual, unrestricted by considerations of social and economic status, personal attributes, and the nature of health problems.”(P.1)This nurse code of ethics obliged us to give good care with dignity regardless of age or health condition. In the same manner nurse should participate in full in care of baby
Compassion is showing care for others and displaying a positive attitude towards the care and concern of others. According to How does it really feel to be in my shoes? Patients' experiences of compassion within nursing care and their perceptions of developing compassionate nurse, "The importance of this relational aspect of compassion to the participants in this study cannot be overlooked when planning and implementing care. Compassion is a process that can be nurtured through attention to patient-centered assessment and planning of care. Patient centeredness is no stranger to nursing discourse, however, adopting this element to care and compassion is challenging in today's healthcare arena, especially when treating massively increased numbers of patients" (Bramley and Matiti, 2014).
Neither is consistent with the lived experiences of AD patients and their families. Her husband is sole caretaker who also has a chronic condition. Overall, AD is portrayed in the movie about how it affects not only the individuals but also the family. It also shows the amount of patience it requires when dealing with someone with AD. This movie enhances the skills of the healthcare providers in the geriatric competencies by showing respect for all of their patients and families, regardless of the illness.
By doing this, I can plan the care for my patients based on their proprieties and commit to them without forgetting anything, as I tend to forget tasks with higher patient loads if they aren’t written down. Another strength I have is leadership. I like taking a leadership role on my unit by delegating appropriate tasks to the healthcare team in order to ensure all the needs of my patients and skills are completed by the end of my shift. Another quality I possess that I think is a strength in nursing is that I love to teach and adapt to my patient’s learning styles based on their priority needs. I think teaching is an essential part of nursing because you find ways of somehow passing on essential knowledge needed by your patients in order to treat, ease, prevent and manage certain disease processes.
Demonstrate how things function in the department and step forward to help them. Teaching the new nurses about the methods practiced and narrating your own experiences can help them get acquainted with the job easily as well as increase your chances of moving to an upper position. It ensures that healthy and good practices are passed to the new group of nurses. Respect the patient 's privacy When you are in this profession, it is important to respect your patients and treat them as individuals. Apart from clinical skills, you must be able to withheld private medical information of a patient when it involves a complicated diagnosis.
