Their research states that oncology patients normally have complex cases and require a lot of knowledge and time. Due to the complexity of their cases, nurses on oncology floors tend to have much lower patient to nurse ratios and provide special training programs. This led to enhanced nurse autonomy as well as improve other aspects of their leadership skills such as improving their collaboration with physicians and other health care providers (Shang, Friese, Wu, Aiken, 2013). Overall, the findings showed that oncology nurses were more happy in almost every aspect of nursing environment compared to those on medical surgical floors. The study goes to point the relevance of the findings to nursing practice to show that factors such as including nurses in committees, empowering nurses to contribute to institutional decisions, and enhancing their leadership will directly contribute to enhancing the nurses autonomy in oncology
The various middle-range theories are preferred over grand theories, as researchers need the generation of testable hypotheses. (McEwen, 2014. pp. 213-214). This discussion will identify how the middle-range theory Interpersonal Relations and how it is applicable in solving nurse fatigue. The assumption is that only nurses who work in the hospital setting are subjected to nurse fatigue, but this problem affects in the rehabilitation facilities, home care nursing, specialized clinics.
It requires long hours at work and has tons of responsibilities. However, a certified nursing assistant has one of the greatest rewards when it comes to job fulfillment. The ability and opportunity to help other people who are in need of medical attention and are not able to care for themselves is a huge motivation. Being compassionate towards other people is one of the values CNAs need to have. Understanding your patient’s situation and having empathy towards them will help you get through the tough days.
be highly effective for improving clinical outcomes and reducing cost. Teaching methods that incorporate opportunities for interdisciplinary education and collaborative practice are required to prepare nurses for their unique professional role and to understand the role of other disciplines in the care of patients. Nursing shortages have a negative impact on patient care and are costly to the health care industry. A significant nursing shortage exists today, particularly in acute and long-term care settings. It results from many factors.
Many theories exist in nursing today and are used as a guide to practice, and as well as providing a framework for nursing research. The purpose of theory in nursing is to provide an improvement in practice and positively to influence the health and wellness of persons, families and the community. In nursing, there should be a mutual relationship between theory and practice, practice providing the basis for nursing theory development where theory is validated in practice (McEwen, 2014). The problem of nurse fatigue continues to plague healthcare organizations worldwide because of long working hours, accepting extra assignments and sleep deprivation that can be dangerous for both nurse and patient. These inadequacies cause compromises patient
State-mandated nurse-to-patient ratios remains a controversial topic in healthcare. Sufficient nurse staffing is key to ensure adequate patient care, while scarce staffing effects patients’ safety and puts nurses at risk for burnout. Determining nurse-to-patient ratios in nursing facilities remains a challenge for the nursing profession. There are many factors to consider when determining staffing methods, such as cost, nurses’ satisfaction, patient outcomes and safety. Mandating ratios is one attempt at ensuring nurses’ workloads do not exceed what is needed for adequate patient care and safety.
Where patients would seek comfort and consolation with each other. However, this too brought on negative affects, as it made patients vulnerable. The act of taking on other patients issues created immense stress for the patients, thus contributing to their already sensitive state. This is significant to psychiatric nursing because nurses will have relevant information to combat these negative effects and improve the quality of a patients being. The benefits of addressing this research problem to nurses are that the nurses will understand the importance of building a good rapport with a patient, thus improving their
Not only do the professionals have to decide on the immediate needs of their patients but also on their future. Ethics has increasingly become a required component of clinical practice. According to Ulrich et al. (2013), many healthcare professionals suffer from stress-related disorders which originate in job duties like protection of patients’ rights, respect to autonomy, informed consent for treatment, and staffing patterns which are impacted by the increasing demand for clear ethical standards in their decision making process. It is therefore imperative for organizations to develop standardized policies and guidelines for education in ethics to help their staff members to carry out
They found that communication failure was a latent cause, which influenced patient safety in the hospital and is a large contributor to adverse clinical outcomes. Ineffective communication can also lead to the patient 's misunderstanding of instructions because of inadequate question-and answer opportunity. Communication is an important part of quality nursing care and predominantly influences patient and resident satisfaction; it is a core element of nursing care, a fundamentally required nursing skill (Fleischer et al., 2009). The nurse plays an important role in coordinating care for the client by integrating the management and delivery of treatment, encouraging health promotion and improving quality of service being provided by taking into consideration the client, client 's family and other health care workers. Nurses can communicate well with patients when they use a patient centered approach, which supports the active involvement of patients and their families.
