Nurses and doctors take the oath to protect the privacy and the confidentiality of patients. Patients and their medical conditions should not be discussed with anyone who is not treating the patient. Electronic health records are held to the same standards as nurses in that information is to be kept between, and shared only with the immediate care team. HIPAA violations are not taken lightly nor are the violation fines cheap. Depending on the violation, a hospital can be fined from $100 to $50,000 per violation (National Nurse 2011 p 23).
Any treatment with acupuncture is therefore based on individual symptoms so there is no treatment protocol for one particular disease. For example when performing a trial on the effectiveness of acupuncture for back pain the trial is riddled with problems from the start whether it is investigating the effectiveness of acupuncture, osteopathy or any other intervention. Chaitow a prominent osteopath comments on the problems encountered when performing clinical trials on back
The different levels of stress in doctors and nurses need to be minimized to initiate better performance. Increased stress level affects the relationship and coordination of work. Struggles are most common indications to such conditions and the treatment of patient is affected (Nakakis Konstantinos, 2013). Disobeying and unconditional patient’s demand is also another reason for rising conflict and therefore I have chosen this topic with an aim to discuss different level of stress and their reasons. The best choice is to use quantitative method to analyze stress between doctor and nurse in
For this assessment, I will be reflecting on what clinical governance looks like in my workplace, with a critique of the framework used within the organization. During the reflection I will discuss what pillars and principles were found, while describing my fellow team members’ understanding of clinical governance and how it is reflected in their practice. Finding the clinical governance framework for my workplace was challenging and time consuming without computer access in place of hard copy policy and procedure manuals. I found clinical governance summerised through the manuals, ensuring compliance of the 44 accreditation standards (Australian Aged Care Quality Agency, 2014) but as Knight, Kenny and Endacott (2015) discuss, while the concept is accepted, there is a gap between theory and practice, which is visual where I work. Pillars and principles such as risk management, efficiency, effectiveness, patient centric and equity are seen throughout the policies, and to analyse more specifically, clinical governance is articulated under categories, consisting of “education and training, clinical audit, clinical effectiveness, research and development and role clarity” (Davies, Chapman & Boyd, 2015 p.45).
Discussion PART ONE: Find two articles regarding conflict management in nursing from the SXU library CINAHL database but not already listed in discussions. The articles should be about conflict management in the workplace NOT about conflict with patients and families. Post the reference in APA 6th edition format in discussions and then include a 4-5 sentence summary of each article. Find new articles, Please do not post an article already used by a classmate. Although bullying and negativity in the workplace are not new topics, they still exist (Olmstead, 2013).
Goal setting helps the person reduce job ambiguity and take control of their job demands because they will know exactly what is needed of them to succeed (Lehrer et al, 1994). Mentoring in the work place can help reduce stress levels by a large amount due to the fact that employees can reply on someone else in the organisation for metal support and guidance (Lehrer et al, 1994). Employee Assistance Programs are useful in buffering the negative effects of stress because it is there to help employees get through difficult times and acts as an intervention program to further detriments to employees when they are having personal issues. Mind Tree allowing women to take one year of leave for every six years of working is an example of this. This allows for the employee to prioritize her personal life and family, which could reduce or eliminate work-family
This study contributes to a 21 item instrument to measure of the nursing workplace stress coping situations. The Nursing workplace stress coping scale has demonstrated evidence of internal consistency reliability, content validity, construct validity and contrasting group validity. The study contributed in development of a process model of stress and coping in relationship to nursing workplace. Managerial Implications Human resource managers are largely responsible for creating the work environment in which nurses’ practice and patient care is provided. It is important to explore and plan interventions that will reduce the stress experienced and promote adaptive coping.
Likewise in healthcare, oncoming staff generally does initiate not patient care delivery until a hand off process occurs. “Communication failures are increasingly being implicated as important latent factors influencing patient safety in hospitals.”(Sutcliffe, 2004, p. 187) Parker (1996) reports, “the nurses handing over had direct knowledge of the patient and were able to convey idiosyncratic and personal knowledge of the patient. This is a crucial element in professional nursing practice. The nurse can report on clinical judgments and can be held accountable for the judgments made” (Parker, 1996, p. 25) Critical evaluation of nursing actions can be evaluated and considered to be either continued or discontinued based on the rationales for the action and the patient outcome. In 2005, the Australian Council for Safety and Quality in Healthcare published a literature review of clinical handover and patient safety.
As more platforms are developed to respond to care needs of patients, this will improve better response to patients. Viewing it from the perspectives of consumers, it will be important to survey their views on each application and the issues of preferences will be attended to. 4.3 Application in current job: The only exposure I have with electronic data collection is glucometers, electronic BP machines and Thermometers. I have not been in touch with any of the systems mentioned on this concept. Concept.5: Practice application Introduction: Again ANA defines nursing informatics as “ A combination of computer science, information science, and nursing science designed to assist in the management and processing of nursing data, information, and knowledge to support the practice of nursing and the delivery of nursing care.” This module describes the applications that are used to achieve nursing care.
and Devi, L. (2014) examined the factors responsible workplace stress and coping abilities of nurses caring for the patients in intensive care units. A descriptive exploratory survey design was used with sample size of 100 using non-probability purposive sampling method. The sample consisted of nurses working in two hospitals under private trust in Maharashtra, India. The tools used for data collection were Stress rating scale and coping questionnaire. The findings revealed that majority (86 %) of the staff nurses were under severe stress and 14 % reported moderate stress.
