According to ("Code of Ethics for Nurses in Australia", 2015) Nurse Kelly did not follow the Code of Ethics, Principal 3 and 7. She did not value respect and kindness of others and promote safe quality care. She did not demonstrate any professional value such as compassion, respectfulness, and trustworthiness when she ordered the patient to speak English and grabbed her by the elbow very roughly. As shown, she did not display any cultural knowledge and awareness of her patient’s native language, therefore the nurse was not empathetic and did not respond effectively to the cultural and communication needs of the patient. Furthermore, Nurse Kelly breached Principal 3 where colleagues shouldn't disrespect and bully other colleagues, everyone should be approachable, supportive and have a mutual goal to provide safe and quality care ("Code of ethics for nurses in Australia",
There have been many instances of unauthorized viewing of medical records. Unauthorized viewing of patient records is a violation HIPAA. The HIPAA Privacy Rule requires that “protected health information should not be used or disclosed when it is not necessary to satisfy a particular purpose or carry out a function” (Health and Human Services.gov). The case study in which Joe, a staff member accessed medical information after he was allowed access to the hospital to change lightbulbs and the case study in which the daughter of a nurse accessed medical information as a result of the mother leaving the computer unlocked and unattended, are HIPAA violations (i.e both people accessed the medical information illegally). Joe was tasked with changing a lightbulb, but was curious about a patient he knew on a personal level, his neighbor.
She is not aware that Ananda has a sexual dysfunction of premature ejaculation and to hide it form her, he was using the dental anaesthetic spray which was not meant for female depths. Ananda was bewildered and infuriated when Nina informed him that she had attended a meeting with La Leche League and revealed what she learnt about difficulty in conceiving. He tried using his medical sense that it’s a very short time of their marriage to conceive immediately and insisted her to settle down first. On the other hand Nina argued that she felt she needed a child to settle down in the lonely land where she has entered as an immigrant. Ananda who had just begun relaxing in marriage required ample time to be first comfortable with his partner and had to hide his sexual difficulty to Nina.
However, Sula refused the issue of motherhood completely. Therefore, her behaviors unpleasantly welcomed by local folks. All the people in the town started to ignore her, but “Sula does not see herself in conjunction with any of their idea” (Galehouse342). She bravely rejected all the traditions imposed by the black community. Marriage and milk are two essential part of motherhood, which have been refused by Sula.
The answer to this question is included in many of the definitions of assertiveness- standing up for one's perspectives. Although Nurse Smith did not want to work an extra shift, her lack of assertiveness made her fail to decline the matron’s request. The last question, which forms the basis of this review of literature, was why Nurse Smith was not assertive. The search strategy thus aimed at finding out the factors that are responsible for the lack of assertiveness among nurses. As a result, the following primary search terms were used; ‘Assertiveness in Nursing’, ‘Lack of assertiveness in Nursing’ and most significantly ‘Factors related to lack of assertiveness in Nursing’.
Now we come to the day that has totally changed my life. The day that my therapist had told me that whenever I was ready that I would be able to start hormones. My mom and I then went to my doctor and told her that I wanted to be recommend to and endocrinologist. Which we ended up finding a doctor his name was Dr. Newell he reminded me a mixture of Spook and Yoda which I really enjoyed. I would spend the next week waiting and waiting for the paperwork to go through.
Of course Helen does not commit a murder and the death at the end of the novel doesn’t occur because of a murder at all but because Catherine loses too much blood when giving birth. Which is something else that Helen foreshadowed when she told Henry “Mind you watch out. I don’t want her with any of these war babies.” (109) Foreshadowing is important when it comes to a novel like this because we are reading the story in Henry’s perspective, and from his perspective, we do see the war and how that is a horrible situation, but when it comes to his relationship with Catherine he does not see anything going wrong, he knows what he wants and he plans on getting it. By the reader always seeing the couple as happy, or even when they do argue or Catherine is acting weird it always ends alright, they will not have any way
Most nurses can’t report violence acts because they believe that nothing will be created to such violence thus, will aggregate the situation leading to injury or death. Some hospitals developed crisis interventions called “code white” program, which enable nurses to recognize the signs of violence so they can intervene early to protect themselves from attack. Any person can use it in case of another person became loud, abusive or started throwing objects. It’s helpful to maintain safety. Moreover, trained volunteers staff can respond to this code, which can be started by using phone system or pressing an alarm button.
According to the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, nurses are expected to provide a safe, effective and ethical care to their patients in accordance with the guidelines of the Standards for Practice for Nurses and Midwives (Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct,1999). Fidelity - There is a breached in the ethical principle of fidelity because, my colleagues were not able to commit in making sure that accurate information and appropriate care was delivered to their patients (The ICN code of ethics for nurses, 2012). They did not demonstrate fairness to provide optimal care and exercise advocacy for their patients, which could have been one of the reasons for the missed follow-ups and poor management of the chronic diseases in the hospital. Justice – The rights of the patients receiving care in the hospital has been compromised due to the sub-optimal care being provided to them. Patients are not able to receive the appropriate care they are meant to be given to them and thus, is breaching the Standards of Practices set up by the Singapore Nursing Board (SNB) for nurses to do their duty to maintain the standard practices of nursing and respect the care, dignity and life of their client (Standards of Practices for Nurses and Wives,
The new administrator brought little to bear in terms of understanding and made judgments that were erroneous with regard to the facilities. She needed a deeper understanding of how the facilities worked before issuing reports that could have damaged the operation of the system as a whole. Case 5: Business Skills and Knowledge The last ACHE Domain, Business Skills and Knowledge, is the topic of Case 5 (American Health Care Executives). This domain requires the ability to apply business principles and systems thinking to the healthcare environment. In the case, the director of food and nutrition services accepted increased responsibility for which she was ill-prepared.
I realized that the previous nurse was not able to see what was happening because she barely assessed the patient during her shift. In addition, she failed to take into consideration the opinion of the caregiver. Once I start practicing, I plan to incorporate best practice guidelines to the care of my patients. Also, this experience gave me the opportunity to practice my skills and to test my ability to think critically in emergency situations. The most demanding aspect of this experience for me was to carry the interventions on my own.
I wasn’t learning anything conducive to living a healthy life. I had so many obvious issues that needed to be addressed—such as abandonment, trauma, depression—but nobody cared enough or knew enough to consider that I was acting out because I had been abandoned by my mother. Instead, I was given a look of disgust, treated like a delinquent, restrained and put on high doses of sedatives. I was not placed in a foster home or with a foster family. I was placed in institutions that smelled and looked like mental hospitals.
After watching the video on Genie Wiley you notice numerous ethical concerns that wasn’t a priority, for example privacy. Genie unfortunately had no say in whether or not she wanted her private information being told to the public, despite that she was unable to communicate. Without giving consent the scientist knew that they weren’t suppose to expose or use Genie as a guinea pig. Genie was unaware of what risk she may endanger through the scientist research. Confidentially was also problem for Genie because at one point she ended up moving from places to places due to her private information being told.
The defense attorney. As Jack’s defense attorney, I would first argue that the police did not find any evidence that Jack stole anything. The only physical evidence was found on Diane. Also, Jack did not admit to any wrong doing. Anything he said to the police should not be allowed as evidence because his parents were not notified or present during the questioning (15 M.R.S.
The registered nurse in our case did not keenly assess the blood pressure of the patient Mr. B. Even at a point of totally not able to assess the patient, the Act provides in standard 4.5 that the nurse would have sought assistance from colleagues in a situation where the nurse lacked the knowledge. The nurse would have swallowed the bitter pill of pride rather than risking and endangering the patient (Code of Conduct, 2012). The nurse coming to workplace wearing sandal, with untidy uniform is total misconduct and against the provision of maintaining confidence in nursing profession. In addition the nursing practice should not be affected by consumption of alcohol as stipulated in principle 8, standard
