Moreover, they see her as some type of monster or a pathetic excuse for a person. When in actuality she is just someone who may be struggling with a mental illness, or one that was created for her. Kaysen has to deal with the stigma that exists within the outside world for the rest of her life because of her premature institutionalization by her doctor.

Nurses often face ethical dilemmas and moral distress throughout various levels of direct and indirect patient care. According to Moon and Kim (2015), patients often die in the intensive care unit, and ethical conflicts frequently occur due to a variety of factors, such as verbal abuse, poor communication between health care providers, and increased incidences of end-of-life issues. I think this is a very important subject to think about, especially when these conflicts can significantly impact job satisfaction, burnout, and ultimately threaten the quality of care for patients. Furthermore, a qualitative study conducted by Henrich et al. (2017) shows that healthcare providers often experience negative emotional repercussions from moral distress in the ICU, and patient care is frequently perceived as being negatively affected.
There are many types of losses, death being the most devastating one as it affects not only the dying but their families too. As a nurse, it is our job to help the patients or their loved ones to comprehend and accept loss so that life can carry on. If a person does not go through the grieving process after a loss, a serious emotional, mental and social problems may happen.

The underlying reasons for clinical errors are often associated with poor communication, teamwork, leadership, and assertiveness in the clinical settings.
222) There are many types of violence in nursing that can occur from other nurses, patients, managers, visitors, and physicians Nurse to nurse violence is commonly referred to as horizontal violence. (Huston, 2017, pg151) Horizontal violence are behaviors that hinder nursing job satisfaction, impact job performance and put a lot of pressure on the nurse. According to the Joint Commission “intimidating and disruptive behaviors” can facilitate medication errors, lower patient satisfaction and lead to adverse patient outcomes. (Lachman, 2014) There is no singular solution to this problem and people have the right to work in a safe and healthy environment – regardless of setting. Victims need proper support and the offenders need to have discipline in order to correct this issue.
Nurses play a big role in our hospitals and communities. They are important to have because of their significant roles and tasks they have in not only hospitals, but clinics and even private practices. Overworking nurses lead to a more stressful environment, patients get lower quality care, and nurses should have better pay and benefits. Having a nursing shortage is a big problem, which may cause many stressful conditions. The nursing shortage increases opportunity, but with opportunity, comes with some consequences.
Incivility defines as “a rude or unsociable speech or behavior (Merriam 2010). The types of behaviors that constitute between nurses can be due to stress, heavy workload, bullying, harassment and aggressions. Incivility and bullying in nursing are complex problems that have garnered much attention in recent years (Felbinger 2008). Emerging evidence suggests that incivility in the workplace has significant implications from nurses, patients, and health care organizations causing a high turnover rate.

There are a few research studies and related pieces of literature that concerns disaster preparedness of nurses. This important due to the fact that nurses is a big chunk in health workforce. Moreover, nurses are considerably the first-line health professionals in giving health care services. As such in times of disaster, preparedness on a personal and professional level is important. As a result, it will enable nurses not only to ensure safety, health and well-being of their client or patients but also themselves.
OPENING - Crissa Selwyna Maramag Imagine the life of someone you love, your whole life has been taken away by an inhumane person in just a snap. You see that person living his or her life in jail with luxury, is sentenced only 10 years in jail.

When families are separated, for example, by job requirements of as a result of divorce, this also causes stress; any disruption of family has emotional consequences, most often creating anxiety, causing depression, or precipitating behaviour problems. Nurses use content analysis to examine respondents’ accounts of the role of nursing staff in promoting and sustaining family presence in the hospital setting. We provide exemplary quotes to contextualize nursing staff behaviours that encouraged, supported, and guided families, enabling them to be present and demonstrate a adaptively before, during, and after the loved one 's death. In particular, nurses focus on nursing behaviours to meet family members’ needs for information, intimacy, privacy, physical comfort, and emotional reassurance.
