The health professional must show empathy, mindfulness and respect while demonstrating active listening. They must remain non-judgmental, providing care that is genuine and honest. This allows them to understand the physical and emotional needs of the patient, which ultimately leads to the right diagnosis and treatment. By the use of positive verbal and non-verbal communication, such as eye contact, gestures, tone of voice and keeping the language relative to the patient, health professionals are able to engage with the patient to find out necessary information (Boose 2018). In regards to written communication, it is essential that the health professional is clear and concise while using relevant and simple language for the patient.
Dignity is a complex concept but is a central nursing value. Nursing care should be delivered in a way that respects the uniqueness and dignity of each patient regardless of their culture or religion. Dignity can be defined as “Patient dignity is feeling valued and comfortable psychologically with one’s physical presentation and behaviour, level of control over the situation, and the behaviour of other people in the environment” (Baillie , 2007). A patient’s experience in a hospital environment can depend on whether their dignity is promoted or threatened. Dignity can be violated, that is why it demands respect but also at the same time protection.
Nursing profession- with effective nurse-patient communication, misdiagnosis, wrong treatment pattern as well as deaths are avoided. The aim of nursing care is also achieved and nurses are satisfied with the care rendered to patients. Nurse-patient communication also makes nursing work easier. CONCEPT 4: THE ROLES OF NURSES IN DIFFERENT HEALTHCARE DELIVERY
The project is dedicated to two case studies, the first within the Middleheim hospital in urban center that investigates the consultation and surgery unit of the hospital, the second within the catheterization facility of the university hospital of Gasthuisberg. The employment of integrated care pathways eases the event of the simulation models as a result of the trail of the patient is already well documented and comparatively easy to derive and to integrate during a simulation model. Collaborative action of these methods during a simulation model guarantees that the model replicates the behaviour of the clinic. Investigation on the model shows the results of the difference within the bed capability to bed usage. During this explicit study unused bed capability is freed owing to the findings of the simulation model (Cardoen and Demeulemeester,
My Ethical lens inventory was to Relationship Lens. I use my reasoning skills Ethical Issue Related to Patient’s Safety 4 (rationality) to determine what processes and systems should be put into place to assure fairness and justice for all in the community (equality). Relationships lens means Fair Systems. For example, what relationships are important? what is a just system?
P. S. van der Schaaf, et.al (2013) highlighted the need for a greater focus on the impact of the physical environment on patients, as, along with other interventions, this can reduce the need for seclusion and restraint. E.R.C.M. Huisman, et.al. (2012) found that built environment can contribute to reducing errors, falls, and infections. The built environment can enhance the privacy, comfort, and control.
Maintaining patients safety reduces the risk of adverse events such as, accidental injuries, complications, disability and even death, resulting from healthcare management and the care a patient receives (Van de Castle et al.2004) (Patient Safety, 2014). The prevalence of adverse events within a facility are a determinant of the quality of care provided to patients and is an indicator of patient safety. These incidences not only effect the patient and staff but also financially burden the healthcare system (Kang, Kim & Lee,
Observations made demonstrated how patient experience within the department is affected by the environment in which patients are cared for including the cleanliness, the security and how well managed the department is; the interactions that occur involving compassion, being listened to and being treated with dignity and respect. The author has recognises that the environment can provide patients with a visualisation of the organisation values. The observations made have reaffirmed that patient experience is an equal element in achieving high quality care. The author acknowledges that the experience may have been different if the activity was undertaken at a different time e.g. not in the school holiday period or later in the morning which
There should be well functioning alarm systems within the organisation. In addition, hazard identification and prevention, safety and health training, control and reporting should be included. This program can be rated periodically. These are some basic concepts for employers to implement as a measure for ensuring a safe work environment. Hospitals should install security devices such as metal detectors to prevent armed persons for entering, design waiting areas to accommodate and assist visitors and patients who may have a delay in service and design the triage area and other public areas to minimize the risk of
Contextual Project on Public Health Management 1. Concept of Public Health nursing Public Health Nursing is the science and art preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting physical and mental health and efficiency through organized community effort toward a sanitary environment (Basavantappa 2008). Public health nurse deals with health promotion and prevention by identifying risk population and initiate ways of prevent such identity risk. Broadly public health nursing covers the care of an individual’s families and community as a whole in terms of epidemiology and policies for healthy action. Health is not static is dynamic therefore human being has to adjust to their environment.
