Nursing Bedside Reporting, Patient Safety, And Satisfaction Scores The American Nurses Association estimates that up to 80% of serious medical errors involve miscommunication between caregivers when patients are transferred or handed off during shift report (ANA 2012). In the nursing profession change of shifts require the successful transfer of information from nurse to nurse to prevent medical errors and adverse events (Sullivan, 2010). Research shows that when patients are included and engaged in their health care there is greater potential to lead to measurable improvements in safety and quality of care.
Week Eight Response to Jurgensen Michael, I chose the Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) role in the emergency department (ED) for my project as well. However, the CNL facilitating the implementation of care for the ED boarded psychiatric patient is brilliant, and not something I had considered. Likewise, our ED boards psychiatric patients, frequently for numerous days prior obtaining inpatient placement for them. In various facilities a physician assistant (PA) assumes the responsibilities for establishing ED boarded psychiatric patient care, however, the CNL stands as a considerably superior individual to expedite care during the transitional period for the ED psychiatric patient boarding for extended periods (Jayaram, 2006).

Position on Topic: (1) Points ________________ Yes, I feel that as long as the nurse participates in a program that includes requirements of regular attendance at support group meetings, personal and active involvement with a 12-step sponsor, and close contact with a case manager or monitor of an alternative program, she should be allowed to return to work.
Even after having their lives turned upside down by the constant use and abuse of drugs and/or alcohol, the biggest challenge facing the people who want to break the cycle of addiction is admitting they have an illness. Once that hurdle is cleared, help is always available, though a good deal of effort should be put into finding the right rehabilitation center to begin the recovery process. If you live in the Northeastern part of Louisiana and need addiction treatment, you might be better served to temporarily relocate to one of several smaller communities in the area that have rehab centers. Depending on your circumstances or perhaps the circumstances of a loved one, the city of Tallulah might warrant consideration. With a population of just
For the last six years, I have been working in the substance abuse industry in both inpatient and outpatient settings. It would be fair to say that most people that are in need of substance abuse treatment have a co-occurring disorder such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and anxiety. These people are diagnosed by a psychiatrist or medical doctor and are typically given medication to help the patient. However, the problem can be that if a person sees a psychiatrist and is not honest about their substance abuse history the mental diagnosis can be deceiving.

The VA nurse considers all attributes of the individual, including age and stages of life, presence of health, race and culture, values, and prior experiences. Administers medications and procedures per policies and procedures. The VA nurse effects patient care outcomes by collaborating with members of the interdisciplinary team.

In the New York Correctional Association’s 2005 report, is was brought to attention that 6.5 full time registered nurses out of the suggested 28.5 positions were not filled. There is also 3.0 full time licensed practical nurses out of 4.0 suggested positions left unfilled. The 23% vacancy of RN’s and 75% vacancy of LPN’s is a large part of why the medical services are falling short (“Fishkill Correctional Facility”, 2005). The nurses that are available are scheduled for extensive overtime, to the point that it is interfering with their family life. This also causes certain patients needs to not be met.
a. This portfolio shows the educational journey through the BSN program at Western Governors University(WGU). The curriculum at WGU was very challenging, nonetheless it prepared me to become a safe and effective nurse.

Also, these people are judged quickly and written off as a loss cause, helpless or addicts. Identifying vulnerable populations and risk groups are part of the a nurses role we are responsible for an advocate on their behalf, collaborating with case managers, social workers, etc. for referrals meditation and resources.

Notably, they have to offer emergency care and guarantee the safe execution of treatment.

Self-Regulation and the New Registered Nurse Introduction The nursing profession has been self-regulating in Ontario since 1963. Self-regulation is a privilege granted to professions that have shown they can put the interest of the public ahead of their own professional interests. It recognizes that Ontario’s nurses have the knowledge and expertise to regulate themselves as individual practitioners and to regulate their profession through the college (“What is CNO?”, 2018). Proactive self-regulation involves establishing learning goals, strategies to address goals, monitor progress of goals, creation of environments conducive to learning, and maintenance of self-efficacy (Zimmerman & Schunk, 2011).
