I do this by playing games with the residents or simply by talking to them.
This assignment will explore a critical reflection on cultural competence and diversity in healthcare, through a reflection of practice which took place in a neonatal unit in the North West. The reflection guide will be Driscoll's (2007) model of reflection. The content of the four Nursing and Midwifery Council [NMC] (2016) domains of Professional Values: Communication and Interpersonal Skills; Nursing Practice and Decision Making; as well as Leadership, Management and Teamwork will inform to the need of how these should inform for professional development in nursing practice. The Papadopoulos, Tilki and Taylor model for the development of transcultural competence (1998) will summarise the cultural awareness; cultural competence; cultural knowledge
In my current role at BSS, I work in a fully inclusive school environment among students with disabilities, their families and teachers. I presently have a case load consisting of 15 students with a range of disabilities, including intellectual impairment, autism and hearing impairment. In this setting I work collaboratively with 6 teachers all at differing levels of collaboration. My collaboratively practises with these teachers range from differentiating curriculum to targeted group instruction especially for students on individual curriculum plans (ICP). My work in the area of special education has been limited, however in this time I have learnt how to work collaboratively with students, families and teachers.
Hello Ms. Trice, Thank you for your informative response. You stated “Health care professionals right out of college are expected to be qualified and ready to work. However, not all employees hired within a company are trained and taught properly.” I agree with your statement. Individuals are trained and taught during their process of school but may not be properly trained for a Health care professional job.
The purpose of this discussion post is to describe patient/inmate experience within the medical unit of the prison system of my employer. Furthermore, explain the nurse’s role, along with the inmate experience. In addition, explain this nurse’s understanding of customer service satisfaction in correlation to reimbursement rates from insurance companies.

These forms of communication are sick call slips and grievance forms.
Today, was a slow day. I was helping one of the assistant’s mail documents in the morning and in the afternoon my supervisor, Ashley, gave me file information forms of the clients. I had to organize the documents by file number. I Couldn’t finish all the documents he gave me because there were about five piles of documents that needed to be organized and scanned into the right

This assignment is based on a personal experience from my clinical practice at Richmond hospital, on a general surgical unit. The situation involves my experience in caring for a 62-year-old male patient, and the lessons I have gained from this significant clinical experience. To maintain confidentiality of my client, a pseudonym Mr. Chen will be used to protect the client’s anonymity. This paper will discuss the client’s background, a professional nursing standard, a reflection on my strengths and learning needs, and evaluation of outcomes to advance my knowledge for future nursing practice. Through this critical analysis and reflection of my continuing personal and professional development needs in clinical practice, I believe this will
Every member of the hospital team has to work together in order to ensure the best quality of care for the patient. This is no different for the radiographer as we work in teams together and with other members of the hospital community every day. First, however we must look at team work in general, its pros and cons, limits and boundaries. What is a team? McKinney defined a team as a group of people that combine their individual talents or skills in pursuit of a goal (McKinney.
In today’s healthcare setting there is a false belief that care for the patient ends once discharge occurs. From the moment the client is admitted into the healthcare facility our main focus as a unit is to make sure that the patient is alleviated of their acute episode of illness and discharged back home. As healthcare providers it is our responsibility to ensure that the patient has the smoothest transition from hospital to home also known as transitional care. According to the American Geriatrics Society (2003) transitional care is defined as a set of actions designed to ensure the coordination and continuity of health care as patients transfer between different locations or different levels of care within the same location. The transitional
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.
Recognizing, acknowledging, and understanding medication safety is important when administering medications. Understanding which medications are high-risk ones, being familiar with the medications being given, remembering the five most important rights when administering medications, communicating clearly, developing checking habits, and reporting the medication errors will lead to safe outcomes for the residents. However, errors do occur from a lack of experience, rushing, distractions, fatigue, doing too many things at once, not double checking, poor communication, and lack of team work. It is not only the staff that commit errors, but also the work environment that contributes to the medication error. Two examples are poor reporting systems
