When he entered the emergency room (ER) he was placed in a wheelchair and briefly seen by an ER doctor. He was told that he could not be admitted because he was a veteran and had to go to a VA hospital, which was 90 minutes away, for treatment. David was wheeled into the hallway to wait for transportation to a VA hospital. The night shift was very busy. After sitting in the hall for five hours, David complained that he needed to lie down.
In 1854, Nightingale and thirty-eight other nurses set out to the Barrack hospital. When she arrived, the hospital was excessively packed with around 3,500 soldiers in a 1,700-size hospital. The hospital had few windows, having candles in beer bottles, most of the soldiers being bloody, without any hygiene and rodents crawling over them. (Wakely & Carson, 2011) “The military physicians and officers resented the presence of female nurses and were unhelpful and abusive.” (Judd & Sitzman, 75) Nightingale stayed positive and kept her nursing qualities still at bay, she sought to make this place a sight for recovery. She combated all the sickness and tried her hardest to receive outside help, asking for more nurses and more medical supplies.
However, many nurses are just giving out poor to bare minimum care (Peate 1). Just like Ian Peate is talking about in the article called, Kindness, caring and compassion “Of late not a day goes by when I do not pick up a newspaper or listen to a news summary in the United Kingdom with reference being made to poor standards of care, particularly around the care of the elderly, but not exclusively” (Peate 1). After reading this article I realized these problems don’t only happen in the United States but all over the world. Coming from my experience of working with nurses in nursing homes I have seen elderly who are unconscious not being feed or even bathe (Peate 1). The bathing issue occurs for months without anyone saying anything about it, because most of the elderly family members don’t even go visit them, so they are not there to witness or defend their relative.
This practice specific concept involves three metaparadigm concepts, including health, patient, and nursing. Safety and quality in relation to patient and health are based on improving patient conditions while using correct nursing activities. In other words, health must be wholesome that requires correct and useful communication and connection to the sources. Thus, “it is crucial that patient safety and quality efforts focus on the systems of care that are designed to prevent harm” (White, Dudley – Brown & Terhaar, 2016). The activities of the obstetrician manager must be centered on the patient.
This is an inductive method to analyze failure modes using down-top methodology . The FMEA is a formalized but subjective analysis for the systematic identification of possible root causes and failure modes and the estimation of their relative risks. The main goal is to identify and then limit or avoid risk within a design. Hence, the FMEA drives towards higher reliability, higher quality and enhance safety . FMEA concentrates in identifying the severity and criticality of failures.
Brione Garrett Single Day Surgery Clinical Ashley Tyler/ Mark Potvin Today I got the opportunity to go to the single day surgery clinic for a clinical rotation. I arrived at about six fifty to be a little early. When I arrived, I received a badge to be able to get through the building since it’s a locked unit, which means that you must have badge access to be able to get into the operating rooms or any areas that aren’t patient rooms. When I walked in the nurses were doing their daily huddle. That when they talk about how many surgeries they will have that day, and if they are missing any nurses or doctors.
Hospitals at one point felt like it was my home I visited often, way more than I would have liked. Hospitals for me were absolutely dreadful, until the day I didn’t have to go anymore. After I had broken my arm when I was six, hospitals, x-rays, and the waiting rooms were something I always remembered seeing. I always despised getting up early, normally around five in the morning. I always grabbed my blanket and went to the car and slept for that hour and half until we got to the hospital.

Introduction Patient safety is one of the key aspects not only in the pre-hospital setting but also in-hospital. Very often patients are further injured in the hospitals and living in a developing country like Namibia a lot of the medical professionals still do not know the importance of patient safety. This reflection focuses on an incident that occurred in the Katutura state hospital casualty. Discussion On September, the author was working nightshift at the Katutura State Hospital at the casualty department. It started off as a very quiet evening with most of the patients having a light trauma or medical emergency ranging from a patient that was stabbed on the arm to a patient not feeling well.
My mum, a doctor at the local hospital, was on duty that day. My dad, a renowned business man, is out most of the time. On this particular day, he was out on a business convention in New York. Although I ought to be bored and lonely, I was not. I picked up my guitar and started playing and singing along and realized I probably wasn't a very good singer.
