Workplace violence is when a worker faces a threat of violence. It is something that is a very serious topic and can happen anywhere at any time. Workplace violence can consist of verbal abuse, physical assault, intimidation, sexual harassment, theft, and many others. Workplace violence can occur in almost all areas of various occupations, whether it is by coworkers, managers, or customers. There is one particular group of individuals who face workplace violence more frequently than others do, and those are our healthcare providers.
The incident happened because of lack of attention given to patient. We manage to mobilized her to the chair and reassured her. We also follow the standard procedure of patient’s fall which is to check on her vital sign and physical for any post trauma injury.

Although it is the patient’s right to refuse treatment, it is our duty as doctors to educate the patient about her condition, the possible complications, and the benefits of treatment if she agrees to receive any. The doctor should also exlain different management options, blood transfusion or iron supplements. The patient should also understand the risks of her condition in case she decides to get pregnant. Counselling should also be done by asking the patient why she refuses receiv9ing blood transfu=on. The patient for eg may have had a negative experience at a hospital admission and is therefore afraid of the same experience.
If a man were to do this to a woman, society would go further and beyond to make a point so why does this case make it no different. In another case, " Michael Silvka...sued ...when they announced that they do not hire men in the obstetric ward due to concerns for patient privacy, staffing, and quality of care"(Legal Eagle Eye Newsletter for the Nursing Profession). In result of this action, it can be evaluated that the hospital is breaking the 13th Amendment which explores that there should be no discrimination based on sexes. The unfairness of the situation is that there is no attention drawn to this issue. It grows an effect on anyone whether it be a man or woman who wants to be in

ESTJs would rather take the traditional way out of things and would like to know exactly how things are going to happen so that they can prepare and organize for the upcoming events. In the intensive care unit patients are critically ill and may even die. With this being said most of the time nurses in this unit may need to use new trails, medications, approaches, techniques, or they may even have to work with a new colleagues or authorities. People who are ICU nurses and are the ESTJ type may have strong difficulties when it comes to day to day duties in this unit, and could cause a multitude of issues that are not acceptable on such critical circumstances. When things go wrong or when people are placed in positions they aren’t comfortable in it could lead to life or death for the patient in the
Addressing disruptive behavior in the workplace is a difficult task in itself, especially when that person is a physician. There are many steps that must be taken as a practice manager in order to get this situation under control before the practice loses staff and have upset patient’s. Confronting situations where staff is being disrespected by the physician has to be addressed immediately because in the end it will affect the patients and the workflow of the practice. The first step I would take is hold a staff meeting only without the physician so I can get a good sense of how the employees are feeling and make note of every time the physician mistreated the staff. Obtaining that information will help me articulate a plan on how to approach the physician.
Analysis of “On the Order of Things” by Lucretius Name Course Institution Introduction In the book “On the Order of Things,” Lucretius explains that human beings leave in fear because they chose to. Lucretius further claims that people fail to perceive things the way they should be; as a result, they worry about the things that do not even affect; people look for pleasure and luxury in the wrong places. He further explains that people worry about the things that are not even dangerous and they neglect what is important; for example, people worry about dreadful diseases, but they fail to consider the role the parts of body play in making things real or imaginary. The author also suggests that the mind plays a significant role in the lives
The patient was transferred in an unstable state without proper organization, which prompted the sequence of events that resulted in an urgent code. Poor communication between the units lead to more confusion to what was actually happening with this patient, which created this breech in our ability to manage this situation effectively. The family was not informed about what was happening, why the patient was transferred, what was his diagnosis and the whole context of the situation enabling them to be increasingly more anxious, which contributed to creating an even more chaotic environment. Another negative aspect reflected how the patient was transferred at the end of the shift without proper notice, which caused the next shift to start off with a code that would disorganize their entire shift. Instead, the patient should have been attended to way before as he was showing imminent signs of respiratory distress the moment I saw
His misreading of the situation made his anger worse. Harry took his anger out on the doctor because the doctor had something that Harry did not like. Harry started yelling at the doctor because the doctor asked if he has really seen the krait, which Harry took as the doctor calling him a liar. Harry had a lot of anger built up inside of him from the stress he had been under, the sarcasm and misreading just added to that anger. Nevertheless, Harry was angry when he finally got to move from his bed.
They were not educated so when the doctor would say something scientific they would trust every word while not even understanding what he was saying. This part of informed consent was stressed throughout the book because in today’s society most people have enough education to have a general idea what is going on when they are at the hospital about to have a procedure done, making it seem
1. What problems did you encounter when handling the complaint? Whenever I received complaints, the problem is that the subordinates usually deny or come up with some explanations making it difficult to discuss it in a genuine manner. Sometimes even if we reprimand them for their mistakes it creates a very tense environment in the hospital and it also affects the quality of work.
According to the oncologist, Nurse L. was acting immorally and unprofessional when informing her patient Michael Q. of all his treatment options including chemotherapy, and alternative treatments such as natural therapies. I strongly disagree that the nurse was acting immoral because it was the patient’s medical and legal right to know all of his options, not just the ones that may be most successful, or ones that medical professional determines as the best options. That being said, I do not believe the patient’s physician should have the final decision about their treatment, unless the patient is unable to make a final decision for himself and has no family to assist him. Because the oncologist did not tell his patient about all the treatment options, Michael Q. was not was not fully informed and therefore his agreement to receive the chemotherapy treatment was not informed consent.
To recover sovereignty and regain control of your mind, Percy suggests rejecting formal education and tried and true methods of execution. He says the best way to rebound from the loss is to take the bull by the horns, and get your own free-thinking mind back. Morris says that your personal beliefs need to be taken with a grain of salt, and awareness of general truths is what really cannot be lost. If you wish to take part in Percy’s solution, Morris suggests you can lose rationality and the ability to differentiate your thoughts and opinions from reality. This could quickly lead to you making incorrect assumptions, and believing things solely based on your eyesight, which consistently lies to you.
His fear even keeps him from comprehending his creation. Not knowing of something drives people insane, literally and figuratively. As humans we are very nosey and it scares us to not be able to have the capacity to know about something in the world. The inability to understand strikes fear in people and twists the minds of others to believe different things.
