Clinical Observation Based on my observations of Sarah and her family I believe that Sarah would benefit more by staying at her home with her family. Though Sarah is being taken care of by her family, I am very concerned with her behavior towards herself and her family. First, I think that Sarah needs to be seen by a doctor so that her condition can be diagnosed and so her family can know how to continue to better take care of her. I also believe that Sarah needs to be taught how to communicate whether it’s verbal or nonverbally, so that she can better communicate with her family. Why?
W-6 PROFESSIONAL BOUNDARIES 1. I chose this competency because as a nurse it is vital to maintain professional boundaries and still be able to provide the therapeutic care without personally getting attached to patients. 2. From the article, I learned that it is ok to be present with your patient, and caring about what they might be going through as you provide necessary care and support, but not to excessively worry about a patient in your personal life/home” (p. 407) 3. The article changed my way of thinking as it increases my understanding as to why I need to maintain strictly professional boundaries/limits and keeping the conversation focused on the patient, provide care and support as a nurse, rather than a friend which aid in managing
At the end of my own life, I will hopefully find comfort in being near the time when I will meet my Heavenly Father. I will also hopefully be able to reflect back on my life and know that I lived my life to glorify God and others could see Him in my actions and words. The end of life can be difficult for some people because they are not ready to leave their families yet or feel like they have more to do on Earth. For these people, it is important as nurses to help them accept their situations and to promote Shalom in their lives as well as their families lives Action Throughout this semester I have learned so much about the older adult. This unit on the end of life has been the most meaningful for me, and I plan to implement much of what I have learned in my future career.
Therefore, there is needed to analysis and argue that some opinions which are associated with the effects of family allowance during resuscitation. Therefore, this paper will discuss the current evidence that the systematic offering of family presence during resuscitation (FPDR) is an ethically sound practice, with minimal demonstrable harms to patients and family members. FPDR is also a supportive approach to achieve the autonomy
Below are some helpful checklists that you might want to ponder on: Do you think your senior loved ones can do better when they have long term care services? Is your senior patient prone to accidents especially with the household items you have in the house? Does your senior loved ones require to have regular check-ups with its physical therapist, specialist and other medical assistance? If your answer is YES to all these questions, then it would be best if you start looking for a reliable residential care center today. But if you are still quite apprehensive about it, then you can talk to us about your
It taught me that it’s okay to advocate for a patient and insist they get the respect and care they deserve. I also learned that it’s okay to get involved emotionally with the patient as we become family sometimes. We as the nurse should strive to make an impact in our patient’s lives as well as their family members. Majority of the time we are caring for and see the patient at their most vulnerable time. You may not always feel like you’re making a huge impact in a patient’s life but sometimes the smallest things make the biggest
As a medical professional, it is imperative to know how and when to talk to a patient. It is crucial to be sensitive, honest, and open (Cohn, 2010). When providing care, a person must be compassionate, but also understand when not to cross a line. For instance, if a patient requests to wait until their family has arrived to hear test results, their request must be considered. But at the same time, it is also important to make sure that waiting for family to arrive would not put the patient’s life in jeopardy.
Although Ting was considered first by the medical staff under code two, Relationship with Patients, their initial support for the parent’s decision and their inability to create a trusting relationship became a barrier when Ting became ill. “Code two calls for the consideration of culture, religion, gender, and primary language to be taken into account when planning patient-centered care” (ANA, 2001, p.18). The proper steps would’ve been to have open discussions from the beginning in order to build trust and create a comfortable environment for both the patient and her family. The last code, Primacy of interest, was exemplified when the healthcare team used translating services to communicate with the parents. This, however, was unsuccessful since the majority of the discussion took place with her
During childbirth, it is important to not only make sure that the baby is okay, but also the mother. A hospital is an ideal place to be if something might occur and there is a chance something will happen during childbirth. If the mother was not at the hospital during birth and there was a complication there would have to be time wasted to get her to the hospital. Additionally, it would also take time to get the mother the correct medical attention and supplies she needs. It is important to keep the mother healthy before the birth as well as throughout so that in turn the baby has a higher chance of being healthy.
However, as a family member I can see the desire to hold on for a long as possible. Accepting the values of others, although perhaps different from mine, will be necessary. I must enter agreements wisely and make promises only that I can keep to maintain the fidelity between myself and the clients. Providing nursing care must incorporate the family members of the patient, and understanding the grieving process involved with losing someone is of key importance. In adhering to the principles of veracity, I as a nurse must carefully choose how I present the truth in the least hurtful way.
