Doctors can save our life and give us life. Our health is important because it is how we live and stay in the right shape. Doctors keep us safe and healthy because when there is something wrong with our body, they can detect it and prescribe the medication that is needed for us to recover. Years ago, doctors didn’t have the training and test equipment they have today. We should be grateful for all the experienced doctors and medical teams in hospitals.
Reflection Qualities that make an effective nursing leader are the same qualities that many other nursing staff and general public possess. Such as, the ability to support and empower their team members, be well organized, remain consistent with their expectations, and be able to communicate with their team. Support and empower the team members An example of this quality is a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) on one of the units at Wascana Rehabilitation Center (WRC), where I had one of my clinical rotations. This nurse would ask each staff member if they had any concerns during their daily huddles. Particular case that was discussed for a few days was regarding a patient’s family member (distant) who would visit every Tuesday and steal patient’s
One example of her daily behavior was being very truthful with her care team right off the bat. Hannah told each of them what she did and did not like, and they all followed through, "From that day on, no more than three or four residents entered Hannah 's room at a time, and everyone who did introduced themselves to her using their real names" (Housden 28). She taught her family, care team, and church community the importance of being fearless in life because of how short life can be. Later in the book Maria touches lightly on her divorce from Claude and in the acknowledgments, and she thanks her second husband. I would like to think because of Hannah she learned to make the most of life and if she was not happy in her relationship, she should make
Thomas, I agree with you, nursing would be almost impossible without nursing assistants. Throughout my nursing career, I have worked with several nursing assistants that are tremendous and a great asset to the nurse. I have also worked with a couple of nursing assistants that could take some advice and training from those tremendous nursing assistants. Having said that, my job as a nurse is dependent on the nursing assistant and we all should work together for what is best for the patient, for they are the ones who we are caring for and they should be of the utmost importance.
“It 's not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.” Those wise words come from the one and only, Mother Teresa. Her quote comes to mind when I think of the career Certified Nursing Assistant. Another is “It takes a special person to do what you do, I don 't know if I could handle it”. It 's true, not everyone is fit to be a CNA. Being able to care for the elderly and bring happiness to their day, brings happiness to my day.
Nurses only work up to 4 patients, this made me happy because of the time they have for each of their patients. Another thing that surprised me was, even when Takisha had 3 patients, she was always walking around bring things to the patients or having to chart the vital signs. Something in which I didn’t know was before the nurses go into the patient's room, they all meet in one room and the nurse in charge begins with a brief explanation on what is happening to the patients on that floor. I had the wrong idea of nurses only needing to look online to know all the details of the patient. I don’t believe Nursing is a right choice for me to pursue in, I feel as if I may like working there in the beginning, However, at the end I will somehow get tired of it and want to try something new.
During the day Sunday, I had to work. I work at a nursing home taking care of patients in rehab. During work, I always get many compliments on how hardworking and terrific I am, many of the patients are very grateful for what I do for them. I take the compliments very well and always say thank you. I had this new patient, so I went into the room and introduced myself.
I enjoyed reading your discussion post this week. It is hard to choose just one or two points from the ten that particularly resonated with me. I have worked with some nurses who have entered this profession strictly for the pay, and it is demonstrated in their work ethic, treatment of patients, and overall performance on the job. I respect your decision to dedicate your life to serving others. I feel that every nurse should have the kindness, compassion, dedication, and devotion attributed to Nightingale.
“Thank you for taking care of me at the hospital,” she barely uttered, as tears of liquid silver trickled down her cheeks. I watched from afar, as I realized that even though the nurse may have thought her contribution made no difference to the world, they made all the difference in the woman’s world. Every contribution, from the biggest to the smallest, played a part in changing people's lives. By volunteering at this clinic, I created packages that informed families about the importance of vaccines. I also checked the height and weight of children, which gave the parents, and nurse an indication of the child's growth.
This learning actively greatly assisted in building my confidence, which I required in order to be successful in the new graduate RN role. Good collaborative working relationships are based on clear communication and collaboration with the patient and all members of the healthcare team. (Kieft, et al. 2014) This semester I had no issues with regards to speaking with physicians and other members of the healthcare team, and I continued to actively participated and contributed to daily rounds on all 3 critical care units. As a nurse I am viewed as my patient’s spokesperson and I advocate for them.
When I interviewed Larnette Gonzales a Front Desk Coordinator at an emergency addiction center I was a bit eager to hear her concerns and opinions about working in a high paced medical environment. I learned that being a front desk coordinator is not a stress free career in an addiction healthcare setting, because you are dealing with many people with all sorts of mental and medical problems. I would have to say that Larnette has a lot of patience when it comes to the barriers she stated when the patient is being checked in with a family member or is still at the denial stage of their addiction. I did learn that in order for a hospital, clinic, or any health care environment the team leader of a Physician has to set the example for the rest of the staff to follow. For example, Larnette stated that they have weekly meeting and they are able to state their concerns without any harsh criticisms and the Physician tries to set up weekly lucheons, so that they can have a good work place and personal relationship with one another and come together as a family.
Mercy does everything possible to save, help, and care for every patient 's lives. They also reach out to a client 's needs by helping their family. They personally reach out to them to comfort them when their family member is in the hospital. Mercy Neurosurgery clinic is a true definition of life and dignity of a human person. Life and dignity of a human person is all about protecting God 's most precious gift, life.
What makes you capable of being a nurse? I am capable of being a nurse because I have been a Certified Nurse Assistant for over ten years; I give not only the book knowledge, but a piece of my heart to each and every patient I care, always on the top of my game and make sure that my patients are clearly understood by everyone else C.N.A is very stressful job where traumatic situations are common. The ability to accept suffering and death without letting it get personal is crucial I gain all those experience by working over ten years as nurse assistant some days can seem like nonstop gloom and doom. I feel gratified going out into the world and serving others. Nursing is about universal care, getting to know your patients, and gaining their
As I walked in thru those doors, into a wonderful and well-kept Nursing Home also know as the Canyon Hills Manor, I was greeted with smiling faces and not just from the nurses. But behind that smile is a very tired and worn out nurse who works really hard. They work day in and day out to keep the patients happy and clean. Nursing at the Canyon Hills Manor is very different from the hospital also know as the Hot Springs County Memorial Hospital. I never expected how much of a difference it is until I sat and talked with each nurse.
