2009). The most significant is the context and “background” variables which describes the caregiver-patient relationship as an underlying factor as well as caregiver stressor. Even more, the SPM can be broken down into primary and secondary stressors, where feelings of relationship loss would be primary (Quinn et al., 2009). Family conflict or caregiver-patient relationship, on the other hand, would be considered a secondary stressor. Conclusions from the studies yielded pre-dementia relationship in relation to the ‘current’ status further impact the caregiver’s well-being.
a total of 296 breast lesions were examined histologically. Histologic analysis showed that 209 (70.6%) of 296 lesions were benign and 87 (29.4%) of 296 lesions were malignant. In our study maximum number of patients in the fourth decade of life were detected to have benign lesions, whereas malignancy was commonly seen in the sixth decade. Sohaib Akhtar et al. in 2013 noted that majority of benign lesions were seen in the third decade of life and maximum cases of malignant lesions were seen in the fourth decade of
She analyzes the benefits of identifying and diagnosing delirium, the short term and long term effects of delirium on a patient, and nursing interventions to prevent and manage delirium (Volland, 2015). At Johns Hopkins, using the acronym DELIRIUM allows ICU nurses to identify risk factors including, “dementia; electrolyte disorders; lung, liver, heart, kidney, brain; infection; rx (prescription) drugs; injury, pain, stress; unfamiliar environment; metabolic” (Volland, 2015). With ICU nurses better trained in identifying these risks, they can alert the medical team and interventions can be implemented to decrease the effects and length of psychosis. Effective interventions studied were: addressing any underlying medical issues; creating a more relaxed environment that is conducive to sleep and decreased anxiety; distinguishing between night and day by adjusting the lights and announcing the day and time to the patient; and conversing with the patient (Volland,
The hypothesis was “a state-wide ED based telepsychiatry program would result in better rates of outpatient follow-up and reduced inpatient service use and cost” (Narasimhan, M., Druss, B. G., Hockenberry, J. M., Royer, J., Weiss, P., Glick, G., Magill, J. 2015). The study addresses the problems the Emergency Department faces with patients seeking mental health services. ASSIGNMENT FIVE, SUMMARY OF THREE ARTICLES 5 Eighteen hospitals participated in the study. The study provided 24/7 coverage with full time and part time telepsychiatrists.
Another study, “Nursing staff perception of the use of physical restrain in institutional care of older people in Finland,” by Saarnio and Isola (2010) interviews nurses to understand how they feel about using restraints on geriatric patients. This study focused on nine categories ranging from history/background on the use of restraints, effects on mobility, alternatives, and emotional effects, just to name a few. This study shows in certain situations why restraints were chosen and the positive and negative impacts of using restraints. The purpose of this evidence based practice is to evaluate the use of restraints in geriatric patients and the effect they have on their quality of life. Restraints can prevent patients from causing self-harm; however, we are decreasing their level of function which can affect their quality of life when restrained for a long period of
These factors include trust, support, mutual respect and collaboration when a colleague is sick (Norris, 2012). This incident had prompted me to think about several important aspects of nursing for me. Nurses should apply human factors knowledge to clinical settings to enhance teamwork and workplace culture. Human factors application is important for patient safety. The underlying reasons for clinical errors are often associated with poor communication, teamwork, leadership, and assertiveness in the clinical settings.
The participants were from inpatient medical and rehabilitation wards (n=16) and health professionals (n=33). Semi- structured, in depth interviews and focus groups were used to generate qualitative data According to the researcher, risk taking was classified as enforced, voluntary, and informed. The five key factors that influence risk taking behaviour were risk compensation ability of the older adults, willingness to ask for help, older
At any rate, the nature of disease also brings great concerns to caregiving. Family, friends, and other uncompensated caregivers are the mainstay for much of the care delivered to older adults, and caring for clients with Alzheimer’s disease is a daunting task. The physical and psychological stress of caregiving intensify the chances of developing the disease with a six-fold increase influencing policies, programs, and services such as respite care, skill nursing facilities and such to become responsible for research and development of successful ways to care for clients with the disease (Rogers, 2013). It is important for practitioners to learn about the disease as family assessments will be necessary for further determination of how the older adult functional capacity effects the social unit, and how they interact and influence one another (Greene, 2007). It is also necessary as appropriate service and care plans, whose objectives are measurable are created together with constant
