Things such as the right to get a copy of medical records and the right to keep them private. I know these laws were in affect by the time Henrietta’s files were released. Her death certificate and things should not have been released regardless of the reasoning. The way all of the background was released for her book but it took 20+ years for her children to find out about her cells was ridiculous. No one had to ask could everything about Henrietta be released, but it was released without incident.
Another major factor of Thao's medication error was fatigue. That had been picking up extra shifts, including the one in which she worked on the fourth of July. Her lack of proper rest and not giving her mind time to receive those eight hours caused the confusion between the two IV containing the two kinds of medication. Despite the fact that Thao had been a nurse for several years prior to the event, Thao did not follow the proper protocol to ensure that patient's safety. She gave her un-prescribed medication which resulted in Jasmines death.
She didn’t look as bright as the first afternoon I saw her and still reported hypotension and lightheadedness on standing. She now also had upper abdominal discomfort. As Mildred had a pulmonary embolism history, alarm bells went off in my head. I asked Mildred if her care team was addressing the problem and if I could do anything. Mildred didn 't ask me to talk to the medical staff and not being her health care proxy or wanting to overstep my boundaries, I didn’t.
Even now though they still aren’t treated equally. In Hidden Figures, the 20 black women who worked at NASA didn’t get the same rights as the white people but at least they were working there. Colored people also had to follow really strict rules. For example, every white person that worked with Katherine got mad when she used the coffee machine in their office. The coffee machine wasn’t labeled specifically for white people, it’s just that they never had a black person use their things before.
Virginia Henderson Theory used Today Virginia Henderson is one of many nursing theorists who changed the nursing profession. Henderson’s theory was considered a “needs” theory (Ahtisham& Jacoline, 2015). It was considered a needs theory because the primary focus was on the patient and the 14 fundamentals needs of the patient to aid in recovery. A nurse taking care of a patient with dementia will utilize Virginia Henderson’s theory in his or her practice by assessing the patient while making a connection with that patient, involving the patient and family to help maintain current health status, providing an environment that will provide safety and security, and using the 14 fundamental needs to guide the nursing process that is being
As a registered nurse, I had admitted countless of patient in the hospital I work at. As part of our facility 's admission questioner, we nurses are required to ask our patient or their loved ones (or caregiver) if patient has any Advance Health Care Directive (AHCD) or Provider Orders For Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST). Furthermore, our facility has two different forms, AHCD (authored by our facility) and POLST (authored by Kokua Mau). In reviewing these two forms, it appears that the AHCD is more comprehensive that the POLST. The AHCD covers what is asked on the POLST with additional questioner on pain relief, patient able to appoint an alternate to the designated agent, able to appoint an alternate to the alternate designated agent, patient is able to limit the agents authority by allowing the patient specify the limitations, and allows the patient to donate his/her organs or body upon the patient 's death.
In the medication administration management process, the prescribers (Physician, Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant), orders the medication and treatment for patient. The order is signed and send to the pharmacist. The pharmacist received the order, review, interprets the order, detect therapeutic incompatibilities, dispense by labeling and packing for administration. The last management process is the nurse. The nurse duty is to review the received medication from the pharmacist then administer the medication to the patient.

Epidemiologic process assess the outbreak to collect data and obtain history. Second step in nursing process and epidemiologic process is similar.
I am a general practitioner in a government general hospital in Thailand. There was neither psychiatrist nor dermatologist in the hospital therefore cases which met the psychological or dermatological referral criteria would be referred to the specialists at a provincial hospital. Despite an increase knowledge and understanding about psychological conditions, the existence of conventional beliefs has influenced many Thai people to judge and treat patients with mental illness as insane. Consequently, many patients refused to see the psychiatrists due to a fear of being judged by others and a long waiting time, resulting in failure to improve their conditions and a decrease in quality of life. My selected patient was a 22-year-old lady, Emma (pseudonym), who came to see me at the outpatient clinic for the follow-up appointment about her psoriasis.
