She told me all about how she absolutely loves her job and how she loves working with all the babies, but she concluded that by saying that it is a tough job to perform because “these babies have just come into this world and it seems unfair that sometimes they are taken out of it so quickly.” (Bryant) She told me how the hospital she works at does not have any services available to its workers regarding counseling and that if they need help dealing with a loss, they are expected to get their help outside of work and not deal with it there. When asked about whether or not hospitals should make it
One part of my clinical day that needed improvement was my ability to talk to children. At the start, I realized that kids are a lot different than adults, so talking to them is very different. It was especially difficult to converse with my patient because he was developmentally delayed. I had never been around that before this clinical, so I was unsure about what to do. I was able to talk to the parents because I was used to doing that from the adult clinical, but it was more difficult with the children.
Foster kids never really get a break until they are adopted by a loving family. Sadly, they usually are more unfortunate than lucky. Treating foster kids poorly and placing them in bad homes just to get your job done is not okay.

According to many authors the statement about foster care systems failing is true.

Weekly Self S.O.A.P - A. S- Discuss your SUBJECTIVE feelings for this week: This week was a hard one. I knew when I was assigned to the patient that it wasn’t going to be easy. I emotionally separated myself when I was taking care of the patient but when the family came into the room and starting telling stories of how wonderful the patient was; it was hard to separate my emotions from the job. I have volunteered for Hospice for years and have had experience talking with patient’s families but it was a gradually decline for the patient and the families learned to accept their loved one’s terminal illness. This case was just tragic.
I have always, like my dad, wanted to major in something in the medical field. Another reason why I want to become a nurse practitioner is that I have always had a passion about helping others. With this job I can communicate with the patients in their times of intense physical and mental sufferings.

I would explain the procedure of the operation in a way that they could fully comprehend.

Reflection Throughout my research, I found many new ideas and information I hadn’t know about prior. The information about HIPAA educated me on what patient confidentiality really is. I found what information can be shared and what is prohibited from being shared. My research strengthened my belief in the need for HIPAA to be in place. My interview was very crucial.
Young children that enter the hospital can be overwhelmed due to the health concerns that they have no control majority of the time. The patient 's parents and the young child undergo a meticulous process while at the hospital. At the beginning of this process, the young patient is given a trinket or something that brings them comfort which is provided by the hospital.

Medicine has changed in ways over the years that one might have never thought twice about having anything like that happen to them. People today have increased their knowledge overall about their health situations and how to treat themselves. Patients are stepping up and making decisions about their healthcare choices each day with physicians.
