She described the two difficulties: the first problem for her is caring for the stubborn patients. In hospital, some patients are very agitated, stubborn and sensitive. Caring with those patients is very difficult for her. Sometimes, they refused her to care them. But she tried to give effective care for them.
Doctors, Hospitals, out-patient/ in-patient centers and even schools rely heavily on their nursing staff. A deficiency that prevents an industry from properly staffing, recruiting or maintaining certified nurses can have tremendous consequences. These effects can have
In the prison system, the elderly population has been rapidly increasing each year. The consequences of elderly inmates require more expensive care at a time when their health is danger to the prison world. Some are likely to die in prison as some elderly inmates refuse to take medication, while others are not properly monitoring their prescription properly. Researchers stated that elderly offender has been neglected due to their psychological and physical needs, which pose management and placement difficulties (Gross, 2007). Elderly inmates’ prisoners suffer from balance, agility, stamina, which can make their adaption to the prison world difficult.
(Fact sheet: heart and disease). Stress is difficult to measure, but we all know what it feels like and how we cope in stressful situations. (Fact sheet: heart and disease, 2005). Stress is a naturally occurring phenomenon in the life of a nurse. As a nurse, we work with people that are hurt or in pain which results in stress for the patient and also may lead to stress for the nurse.
Firstly, people might feel exhausted and frustrated to take care an elderly. As elders become more physically fragile, they will not that active anymore compared to the old times. The speed of their action or movement will reduce and it needs people to stay by their side all the time to take care of them. Elders need 24/7 assistance with all daily needs and this might be one of the causes that lead to elderly abuse. This causes excessive stress and anger to the caregivers because of each of them needs freedom for themselves.
There is a lot of technical and clinical information that the one will need as a nurse: critical thinking and communication skills, patient assessment skills, understanding disease management protocols and development of care plans (just to name a few), most of which is only obtainable through college or technical school and on the job experience. Respect for the patient, the patient’s support system, as well as, respect for yourself is another essential trait necessary to be a successful registered nurse. If patients are sick or worrying about what might be wrong with them, they are going to understandably be anxious or upset (and probably both). Part of practicing compassion as a nurse is recognizing situations like this – and so many more – and striving to help patients maintain their dignity through it all. This requires honest and straightforward communication.
Introduction Breaking in confidentiality in hospital settings is one of the serious matter in the eyes of the laws. Nurses can be charged in court for doing such disgraceful act. It is part of a nurse’s responsibility to be more vigilant and wary when handling patient’s personal information. In other words, being a nurse does not just simply mean carrying out our daily orders and tasks, but also to ensure the safeguarding of patient’s information. Nurses must have the sense of responsibility to ensure that written confidential information are securely kept.
Nurses are exposed to multiple stressful demands and pressures from workplace, family, and other factors as represented by Ostelle in the transactional model of stress and health and are therefor at very high risk of an array of safety, health and other issues. Nurses confront a range of occupational health and safety (OHS) risks in their roles of providing care and comfort to the sick and aged. While much has been done to identify and control the physical risks associated with nursing work, such as manual handling, ergonomics, chemical and biological hazards, not much has been achieved in successfully recognising the very real psychological risks encountered by
Nursing is a noble and dynamic profession. The constant changes that occurs in the nursing profession are because of the need and demand of the society. Now a day’s one of the major problems faced in nursing throughout the world is the shortage of nurses. Nurses play a important role in forming the largest part of health care systems and providing direct care to the patients. There are few professions that allows the individual to make a positive influence in the society and nursing is one of them.
Also, their job is so dangerous sometimes that because of the things they see and the experiences they must go through to save people in need, in many cases it causes more than just temporary danger, but can affect paramedics in the long run. Very frequently EMT-paramedics develop PTSD, which stands for post-traumatic stress disorder, and it is due to negative events that lead to awful memories. A case study that examined the correlation between EMT-paramedics and PTSD states, “Emergency medical technicians and paramedics are subject to critical incidents, defined as stressful workplace incidents that evoke acute distress and which may impair functioning in the short- or long-term” (Halpern). These terrifying events that often paramedics are
Critical issues: Due to the high number of patients that social workers are responsible for, they are met with tight deadlines to avoid discharge delays. They also have to face difficult cases involving patients with multiple psychosocial issues. Reference Marrow, Nancy.
However, sometimes a lot of changes all at once can be overwhelming to healthcare workers – especially nurses who deal with patients most frequently. This is the situation that is going on currently in the healthcare sector. Christine
(Con) Removing the ACA from its rightful place would mean higher prescription drug costs, affecting the ill and senior citizens in critical need. For example, a working mother named Megan Dooley Fisher has to pay “$2,500 out-of-pocket” (Rosenfield par. 6) on medication without the help of the ACA. Many other families and individuals like Megan Dooley Fisher would be facing financial difficulties
Thousands of people would not benefit from outpatient treatment and often found themselves under-employed, homeless, victims of crime, in nursing homes, in residential treatment homes, in a correctional facility, and more likely to suffer from substance abuse disorders. These compounding factors are the foundation of the phenomenon called “Criminalization of the Mental Ill.” People with a serious mental illness are more likely to be arrested, incarcerated, and sentenced to more time than those not suffering from a mental illness. Contrary to stereotypes, people with a serious mental illness are more likely to be a victim of a crime. Even if the concept of diverting potential clients to alternative community programs was created at the inception of deinstitutionalization, it was not implemented into the criminal justice system until 1988 when the first Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) was developed. The Memphis Police Department developed the program after one of its officers shot and killed a man who suffered from a mental illness.
