As I read the “Team STEPPS makes strides for better communication”, some of the tools like; (SBARQ) is used in many organizations, especially during patient hand-offs. It provides a systematic way to convey patient information, which is essential during high-stress situations. In a stress situation, taking responsibility to prevent human errors. As ANA code of
During one of my early shifts, with the help of my preceptor, I recognized a neurological change in the status of my patient. He had increased confusion and a slowed pupillary reflex. This change caused us to call the intensivists and order a stat head CT to check for bleeding in the brain. While there was no new bleeds identified following this CT, this experience taught me just how important it is to have a solid baseline assessment of a patient and how important it is to re-preform specific assessments based on a patients condition. According to a study by Rothman, Solinger, Rothman, and Finlay (2012), nursing assessments can act as a longitudinal source for quickly identifying indicators of a clinical problem a patient may encounter.
Nursing Case study Introduction The guiding principle in the provision of health care is to ensure that all patients are provided with high-quality care that guarantees enhanced recovery regardless of their social, financial, cultural and other discriminatory backgrounds. This principle holds nurses and other health care providers accountable for all their actions in the process of care delivery. Health care providers are required to observe coordination of care at all times to ensure that avoidable negative eventualities do not occur (Stukenberg, 2010). Nurses play a crucial role in the delivery of care in and out of health care facilities.
This is a critical reflection regarding of the management of the scenario 4: palliative care, which was raised by the author’s peers. Topics such as: the effectiveness and logical of the management; also the application and usefulness of the management styles for nursing care delivery will be discussed. The author will further discuss several areas, such as palliative care, talking about death and dying, importance of open and truthful communication, what is good death, complementary and alternative medicine and also hospice care within this piece of work. Up-to-date, the medical advances have not only prolong our life span, but also have changed the way we die (Ho Andy et al, 2013). As death and dying are prolonged and institutionalized,
The theorist Betty Neuman explains how the whole system affects the patient’s health and shows how the nurses are responsible for the social, mental, spiritual, physical and emotional state of the patient and not only the physical aspect. With the theory, nurses and other professionals are able to provide effective systematic nursing care to their patient using the System Model. Furthermore, her ideas give the importance on how to give the right care through stressful situations and give knowledge and development to the science of nursing. The Model also speaks to coping with unexpected situations through three prevention levels which are the primary prevention, secondary prevention, and the tertiary prevention. Generally, I choose this model
HCPs are obliged to provide best medical care to the patient under the principle of beneficence. Along with beneficence, one has to follow the principle of Non-Maleficence which means causing no harm to the patient.  HCPs not only have to deal with the physical health of patients and benefit them but also consider their psychological and moral needs.
The researcher will make a phone call with the head nurses of the hospitals and explain the study to head nurses and ask their permission to conduct the study in their institution with some target patients. The researcher will use the hospital's electronic record system to review the young adults who were diagnosed mild dementia. After that, the appropriate patients who will match the inclusion criteria will be chosen. Eligible patients will sign a consent form that will explain the research components, the advantages and disadvantages and all components of the research. The research process will be at two points, pre-test: it will be before starting the intervention sessions, and after assigning the patients
In an effort to improve this, many institutions have set up regular rounds from an ICU liaison nurse to patients who are discharged from the ICU. This visit was done to provide education to staff nurses in areas of patient education and assessment. In some other institutions, nurses review Early Warning Signs frequently to anticipate activation of the team. The RRTs are also becoming more involved in end-of-life (EOL) events. During an EOL event, patients are not able to make decisions for themselves and the RRT is not in a situation to engage the family to make decisions for the patient either.
When I decided to enroll in becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) last 2009, I know that I would be able to deal with different kinds of people and be able to be part of their healing process during their stay in the healthcare institution. Today, as I become a part of the health team, I learned a lot of things. First is being able to know how to communicate and work with different kinds of people may it be our patient or a coworker. In my every day shift at hospitals and nursing homes, I was able to meet people from different countries with diverse culture. My effective communication as part of the healthcare team was developed for me to be able to know how to talk to them effectively.
Initial Response 1.Describe how highly functioning interdisciplinary teams enhance the quality and safety of care provided in today’s complex healthcare organizations. Provide an example of a team approach used for quality and safety within your organization and discuss why you believe the team was or was not successful in achieving its goals. Use theoretical perspectives about team formation, membership, and tools to substantiate your response. Shoemaker, et al. (2016) wrote that interprofessional team-based medicine is viewed as a significant feature of delivery systems restructured to deliver more effective and higher quality care.

Scally and Donaldson, 1998, described Clinical Governance as ‘a framework through which NHS organisations are accountable for continuously approving the quality of their services and
In the case study, it shows that the nurses did not treat the patient according to his/her needs. The nurses have failed to deliver an ongoing assessment of the pressure area, and this has resulted in harm to the patient. 2.1 Risk assessment form One of the tools not used to safeguard patient safety was the risk assessment form. When a patient is admitted to a hospital, risk assessment should be done at-least within 8 hours of admission and frequently continue throughout patients stay (ACSQHC, 2012). Risk assessments consist of Braden scale, which is used to provide a prediction of the patient’s risk of pressure areas outcome, based on causes for example mobility.
