Services provided include managing the pain and the symptoms of the underlying illness or disease, medications, spiritual care and volunteer services.
At this point I thought that a doctor would not only work on treating the physical condition of the patient but would have a big role in bringing joy in spite of their hopeless condition. When my relative was diagnosed with alopecia, the doctors were too busy with other patients to treat her. They were so busy that it was hard for us to get an appointment with them. During that time, I wished that there was an assistant to the doctor who could treat my relative and help her get through her toughest moments. That night, I went home and researched about doctors having assistants who can

We were educated by our clinical instructor on the different access codes in the building, the policies and guidelines, our assigned floor and the appointed personal support worker.

The article focuses on hospitalized older adults, but it talks about how the same can occur in a long term care facility if the patient has some sort of disease or is unable to move themselves. From this article I learned that many times nurses do not help with moving patients because they are not taught it is essential or they are not taught how to.

An evidence based intervention the article discussed was better education and more theoretical framework for nurses about the knowledge or mobility. Another intervention the article discussed was using the knowledge and theoretical framework to change nurse’s attitudes about mobility.

The first thing I did was introduce myself to the staff and the residents, I talked with the nurse aids in charge and asked them about the clients, their routines, what activities they like and which ones they don’t. Patients with cognitive impairments benefit from a structure schedule, this helps stimulate his memory and they are able to remember at what time certain things are done.
