In the leadership in care delivery course, we were assigned to a hospital to perform clinical hours and provide care to four patients. Additionally, the purpose of this paper is to explain and provide examples on how our patient care included the concepts of Quality and Safety Education for Nursing (QSEN) competencies, delegation, handoff reporting, and a reflection of the clinical experience. Quality and Safety Education for Nursing (QSEN) Competencies QSEN consists of six competencies: patient centered care, quality improvement, teamwork and collaboration, safety, informatics, and evidence based practice. To provide patient-centered care, I had to educate the patient when administering medications on why the patient was taking the medication and side effects. Care had to be individualized with each patient and it included providing respect with his or her decisions in their care.
My values as a nurse are based on displaying characteristics of compassion, empathy, respect, reliability, integrity, knowledge, and trustworthiness. Each of these qualities will help me provide safe, patient centered, nonbiased, competent care to each of my patients. I believe that it is imperative to provide nonjudgmental care to everyone
My clinic observation gave me a different look on nursing. I was placed on the high risk floor and if you are a high risk patient you have to come to the clinic each week until the delivery of the baby. I enjoyed being able to hands on see several of the procedures we have discussed in class such as GBS test, urine dipsticks, and ultrasounds. The one thing I didn’t care for much was that the patient interaction was very minimal, the nurse really doesn’t interact with the patient’s much after she get them to their examination room. I liked being able to see the various roles of the healthcare team be fulfilled.
A nurse must keep up to date on education and new processes in health-care, so they can provide the best care. As a nurse, you have promised to give each of your patients the best care that can possibly be given. Nurses must follow a code of ethics, to act safely, provide ethical care no matter how they feel about the patient or the reason they are in your care. Following this code of ethics shows your commitment to caring for people and society, it is a guide of ethics and standards to follow to keep everyone safe. Nursing is also a wonderful opportunity to meet hundreds of people from almost every nationality and every walk of life.
Nursing is a multidimensional profession, and nurses themselves are continuously faced with confronting a variety of ethical dilemmas within their practice each and every day. These dilemmas can arise from situations involving colleges, governing parties, clients or the family of clients. It can be difficult to differentiate morality from ethics, as they both go hand in hand. Morals involve the principles of what an individual believes is right or wrong, and depicts how they factor what is good or bad (Burkhardt, Nathaniel & Walton, 2014). On the other hand, ethics is a moral principle where an individual uses thought processing and decision making to gauge a situation (Burkhardt, Nathaniel & Walton, 2014).).
First of all, I believe that the profession of nursing is all about people. Care involves the whole patient, and not just a single illness or health concern treated in isolation from the whole. Our holistic perspectives consider all factors of a patient 's life, and give the best quality of life to our patients. Secondly, while human beings are central to nursing, it is also necessary to look beyond the patient to the environment in which he/she lives. This is very important because people are members of a larger community with different features and characteristics that influence greatly our patients, so we cannot separate patients from their environment because they are interrelated.
Maintaining a consistent professional growth and allegiance to lifelong learning is a great practice to sustain a healthy relationship with the resident. Healthcare professionals are expected to be moral and reveal wisdom, honesty, and courage towards their residents. To help the resident open up more, healthcare workers must provide residents to positively convey and express their grievances. Nurses must also provide a positive, comfortable environment for their patients that promote their nursing practices.
Nurses exhibit generosity by providing patients with education to make informed-decisions. It requires courage to advocate for patients in instances such as paternalism, during which a patient is told what to do rather than being an active participant in their own care (Cirpili & Shoemaker, 2014). Unresolved situations like this may lead to ethical issues, as the patient may not agree with the care plan decided for them. Integrity entails acting according to your beliefs, but may be problematic when a patient’s beliefs differ from that of the health care providers; values clarification can be achieved through reflective journaling to prevent conflicting beliefs from affecting patient care (Stephany,
The critically issues or impact which are in nursing those are daily facing these things us per the types of patient but nurses are everywhere they have long struggled with ethical challenges for patient care Nurses face daily ethical challenges in the provision of quality care for retain nurses targeted ethics-related interventions that address caring for an increasingly complex patient population are needed because ethicla issues the stress of the nursing practices and patients rights also, also ethical issue can occur in any healthcare situation where profound moral questions of rightness or wrongness underlie professional decision-making and the beneficent care of nurses for the patients but the appropriate and general institutional review
A competent nurse is knowledgeable, compassionate, holistic, ethical, a patient advocate, and integrates other disciplines in order to achieve excellence in quality patient care. I believe the road is paved with multiple opportunities for students to experience and collaborate with competent nurses. Because I believe the qualities that are characteristic of a competent nurse also are characteristic of an competent nurse educator, my teaching styles reflects my nursing practice. I believe a student 's level of commitment is influenced by my enthusiasm and passion for teaching. For me, it begins by investing my time, knowledge and experience in students.
“Nurses are doing their best to provide care for their patients and their communities and are supporting each other in the process so that all nurses can fulfill their ethical and professional obligations” (American Nurses Association, 2015, para. 6). Ethical beliefs Nurses face ethical dilemmas every day, it is part of what is required as part of our daily routine. Despite ones personal beliefs on multiple challenging issues, such as choice versus pro-life or life saving measures versus the right to die, it is the nurse’s role to be an advocate for the patient and their needs. Perception of care
The provision one of nursing code of ethics stated that “the nurse practices with compassion and respect for the inherent dignity, worth, and personal attributes of every person, without prejudice” (Fowler, 2010). Under this provision, the nurse needs to respect for human dignity, establish a trusting relationship with patients without bias or prejudice, and respect patient’s autonomy. According to this provision, as a future nurse, I am obligated to respect patient’s health care choices regardless of my personal belief. I can assist the patient in making health care choice for patient’s best interest; however, I should not impose my personal belief in influencing patient’s decision. I should also care for all patients without judgments.
And this importance causes a double take to concur so that when hospitals are checking on patient care they must be cautious and mindful towards the people that are taking care of these patients. These institutions will be more likely to employ much more nursing positions so that fulfillment of studies can be reflected and express that their hospital is a great hospital due to the hard work and many nurses that affect the quality of patient care (KP para
