An example of the importance of interprofessional training is that when a physical therapist works with a patient in the hospital. If the patient is in too much pain or is sleepy from the medication the physical therapist will not be able to accomplish much. However, if the physical therapist contacts the nurses beforehand and informs them of the time he will arrive to work with a patient, the nurse could make accommodations. This would allow the patient to accomplish the physical therapist’s intended tasks for the day and the patient’s recovery time could decrease exponentially. Many patient’s care relies on their health care team effectively cooperating and acting as a cohesive unit for the patient to experience optimal
P- Among Nurses and Physicians in an orthopedic surgical unit I- does the use of the SBAR format to communicate C- compare to non SBAR format O- To identify the problem in communication and its effect on patient and ways to solve the problem. According to Flicek article multiple barriers exist that hinder nurse- physician communication. A continuous flow of interruptions and multiple patient handoffs affect the ability of nurses and physicians to connect effectively, and establish a trusting and collegial relationship (Tschannen et al., 2011). Time is also a major factor in communication breakdown. Because nurses a n d physicians can independently busy, finding time to communicate properly becomes a pressing issue (Burns, 2011).
Large patient loads combined with a stressful work environment affects nurses’ abilities to provide quality healthcare. Patient safety should never be compromised. It is our responsibility to learn from research and improve our current nurse staffing ratios. Nurse staffing is key and affects all other outcomes. Without nurses administering the right treatment at the right time to the right patients, all other healthcare interventions are not effective.
Patients in different healthcare settings are vulnerable due to their conditions and sometimes lack the ability to share their challenges such as poor quality treatment and hospital-associated infections. There are cases when hospitals undermine ethics and ignore their patients’ values and interests. Healthcare professionals therefore have a responsibility to empower their patients with information on important medical decisions. However, some nurses ignore the need to communicate the risk of hospital-associated infections leading to undesirable outcomes. In cases when a hospital records a higher rate of HAI, it is important to inform a patient of the risk.
Letting go of a family member is an excruciating task to ask of anyone; however, if a patient requests to not be hooked up to life preserving machines or requests to have a DNR code status, the family must legally respect those wishes although it may not seem ethical to them. In addition to burdensome decisions about end of life care, decisions must also be made about preventative care. Although scans such as mammograms help to detect signs of serious illnesses, they often reveal a negative test result. This negative test result may present a peace of mind for the patient; however, they also heighten healthcare costs creating a financial barrier for patients and the hospital. Recognition of these barriers, among others, renders the need for quality improvement.
Electronic Medical Record Technology has helped with many aspects of our lives but healthcare is one that touches every single one of us at every corner of the world. There has been many advancements made to the way physicians treat patient and how they interact with one another.

Health systems management or health care systems management describes the leadership and general management of hospitals, hospital networks, and/or health care systems. Health systems management ensures that specific outcomes are attained, that departments within a health facility are running smoothly, that the right people are in the right jobs, and that resources are used efficiently and that all departments are working towards a common goal. When thinking about a career in healthcare, images of doctors or nurses might be the first to come to mind. In reality, there are hundreds of different healthcare careers, from the people who administer the healing to the people who manage the industry. Doctors and nurses do not function on their
Healthcare is always developing. New ways managed care is changing within medical settings as the health care profession works to offer higher quality and cost effective care to patients is reducing the rates. Managed health care plans control costs by setting some specific criteria for selecting specific providers to patients and by establishing formal program to monitor the quality of care being given by the providers. In obvious cases, doctors must get approval before hospitalizations or expensive tests and procedures. When deciding on what we can contribute to or not it become tricky.
Every single action is vital and every second should not be disregard. Therefore, it has made me realized that even you had already encountered a specific diseases, skills, equipment and so forth we have to be vigilant for the continuous changing world of being not just a registered but also a professional nurse. In hospital setting, nurses must have a lot of courage. And have the knowledge in appropriate actions in delivering of patient care. Like for instance, I have to question the certain drug dose in the doctor.
All members must be educated on the different roles and functions of all positions. Tensions, misunderstandings, and conflicts caused by differences of opinions and interests can interfere with effective interdisciplinary communications (Lancaster et al., 2015). While this study was performed in a hospital setting, I wonder if the results would be the same in a clinic? It is not unusual for a physician or an APRN in a clinic to only have a UAP working with them. As patient loads are increasing and providers have less time to interact with the patient, it is essential to include all feedback from the UAP.
Everyday I work with patients in the hospital from all types of different backgrounds; as a health care provider, constantly seeing patients who feel like there’s no hope in their life, is devastating. Euthanasia should be legal in the United States to eliminate patients from undergoing suffering from an incurable or terminal disease. Healthcare is currently in transition of allowing more states to be able to have euthanasia performed on them because patients are no longer willing to suffer from these untreatable conditions. More people need to be informed on this procedure, the risks of it, and how to determine if someone is able to get this approved by a doctor or physician. This procedure involves the deliberate taking of a person 's life, assisted by a physician who will prescribe this patient to do so themselves.
