Ethical Perspective The book No Good Deed brings up many ethical issues that can be discussed. In the world of nursing there are specific issues that will be seen more than others. The ethical issue of nurses providing care that they feel is necessary for their patient yet others do not feel it is necessary is often an issue. Beneficence plays a large role because where is the fine line of doing good become doing harm? Kim talks about how comfort care measures were to be done for Rose.

Evolution from Novice to a Beginning Professional Nurse Looking back when I started my nursing school, I can proudly say that I have evolved both physically and psychologically. I was not sure if nursing was the right choice for me at first because I had difficulties interacting with people outside my family circle. The first semester was challenging for me because I did not know how to interact with my class mates and felt isolated each time there is a class activity. I joined a study group later that semester and it has been an excitement ever since. Today, I am glad I choose nursing because I have overcome my social fears, learn to be a team player, learn how to prioritize and most importantly learned to manage stress.
CHAPTER 2 : REVIEW OF LITERATURE 2.1 REVIEW OF RELEVANT STUDIES The emerging themes noted throughout the research were safety of mobilization of critically ill patients, the effect of bed rest and various methods of repositioning on LOS and the effectiveness of a nurse-driven mobility protocol. Nursing staff or physical therapists can provide early mobilization in the ICU; however physical therapists are not always available in ICU. Any measure of mobility milestones in the ICU must be feasible, valid and reliable across both nursing and physical therapy disciplines. A previous survey suggested that few physical therapists use any specific instrument to evaluate mobility in ICU (Skinner, Berney, Warrillow, & Denehy, 2008). Evidence from

This is very critical as it helps in the diagnosis and also helps me to get to know the patient’s history [Doctor 1]. However, one challenge with regard to patient active participation in the encounter process is the lack of role clarity. Both doctors and patients shared this view. Some patients are not sure of their role in the consulting room…some believe that with the minimum or scanty information, doctors should be able to diagnose and treat them accordingly [Doctor 7]. It is quite worrying that some patients come to the consulting room and try to suggest what to prescribe for them.
The author also highlighted that addressing issues concerning unequal availability to healthcare is in imperative in order to reducing health disparities (McHenry, 2012). I think as APNs one thing we can do is make patient aware of what their insurance will cover and what types of services they are eligible for. For many patient, suggested interventions and treatments may be disregarded due to a lack of financial means. In addition to this many people have simply decided not to take advantage of health insurance coverage that is available to

Were there more deaths related to not following the Moderation Sedation policy? No additional deaths were found related to Moderate Sedation because the plan has worked. If additional deaths were found we would evaluate charts of patients who had a procedure done at bedside to see if the Moderate Sedation policy was followed. If not follow up would be needed to see why it was not followed, which would include speaking with the physician and nurse at bedside who performed the procedure. Not following the policy was it do to lack of understanding, if so additional education would be needed.
