Leavitt and Leavitt (2011) claim that nurses and doctors should act without delay in case they feel that patients might be at risk. Doctors and nurses should be considerate and kind to the patients by listening and attending to all their concerns. Teamwork is an important professional value that is vital in the provision of care centered on patients. A culture that is based on learning from previous mistakes and openness is fundamental in the provision of care and ensuring that patients are satisfied. In view of that, workers in the health sector should maintain honesty with the patients they are attending
Beneficence is the core principle that refers to the act of ‘doing good’ and advocating for the patient. All nurses should take positive actions to help their patients and to have the desire to do good. On the other hand, nonmaleficence is the core of the nursing ethics and it revolves around the idea that nurses have to remain competent in their field as to avoid causing injury or harm to patients. Nonmaleficence also requires all health care professionals to report any suspected abuse. The last ethical principle is justice.
We all have to start thinking about our parents future and where they are going to live for the rest of their lives when we can’t take care of them anymore. We need to think hard about our parents safety and what they can do to protect them from harm. It is very important to have a plan ready and to be asking many questions as you can because it is for your loved one who you will entrust to other people. As the senior population increases, Assisted living facilities need to undergo more rigorous accreditation and auditing by AMA process in order to enhance patient safety. Assisted living is a way for families to have a peace of mind when their parents are at a certain age and needs assistance.
Nurses must follow beneficence which means to do good. Nurses do not want to harm a patient in any way. They must provide confidentiality and privacy when going thru the process with their patient. Patient’s have the right to autonomy which is the freedom to make choices about issues that affect one’s life, free from lies, restraint, or coercion. Nurse’s must provide care that is patient centered even when the nurse might not agree with the patient, he or she still has their rights.
I would be choose honest, empathy, and no maleficence because the employs need to motivation, good relationships, and great performance. When you management of a health care facility and you have the lot of responsibility between patients and employees. Honesty can open lack communication and make strength between the providers and patients. That’s fair technical skills for experience of the providers and professional behavior to seek instill in health care. Empathy could play many thing in the health care because it is makes you understanding another person 's condition from their perspective.
Each group of people is guided by the principles they believe in. Ethics in health care play a vital role every day. The practice of health care includes many scenarios that have to do with making adequate decisions when it comes to patient’s life. For the purpose of this paper, I want to explain the occurrence and some of the ethical concerns found in a case of an elderly patient, who believed in Curanderos and didn’t realize the harm she was doing in regards to her health by not taking her medications. This was a case I found in the book Ethics in Administration a Practical Approach for Decision Makers.
Covert use of medication can be seen as dishonest as the NMC code (2015) states respect the level to which people receiving care want to be involved in decisions about their own health, wellbeing and care; the code of practice also states act with honesty and integrity at all times, treating people fairly. In contrast however, Beauchamp and Childress (2009) highlights non disclosure, limited discolour, deception or lying may be considered when veracity and the principle of autonomy is thought to conflict with other ethical obligation. Jean was given the opportunity to understand and evaluate what was being asked and was provided with all relevant information to support their decision making process.
Angela Jones 1.1- Describe factors to take into account when planning the areas safely: When planning a safe area for children it is important that factors are considered in order to make it a healthy and safe environment for all children and young people. It is important that all planning is related to the needs of each individual child or young person. Having a safe environment is important because it lowers the risk of any children or young people as well as adults from getting injured. When in a work setting it is important to assess all risks of children’s safety to ensure that they get minimised so no incidents get caused. Specific needs- It is important that all children and young people who have specific needs such as a physical disability or sensory impairment etc must have full access to all available activities.
In our interview Sissy explained to me the various ways her providers have excelled in every expectation she could ever have and then a few ways they have disappointed her. There are two voices you can express to a patient about any situation. Voice of Lifeworld and Voice of Medicine; According to the text Communication About Health: Current Issues and Perspectives, Voice of Lifeworld can be defined as “primarily concerned with health and illness as they relate to everyday experiences” (DuPré, 2016, p. 73). Voice of Lifeworld focuses on feelings rather than evidence. Those who use this voice tend to be more concerned with wanting to know how their condition affects them.
Routines are important to keep children safe as routine provide a consistent and predictable flow of what happens when. Consistent routines in a child’s life allows them to have stability and structure. In my setting there is a clear routine for the dropping off and collecting a child. When children arrive the routine is for them to be signed in by their parent on the sheet provided by the EYPs, the parent/carer then talks to the key person and discusses any concerns or key information which needs to be shared. The parent then helps the child to find their name on the peg rack and put their bag onto their section; in my nursery they don’t provide breakfast so when the parent leaves there is free play time.
