Aiken (2002) study shows that the nursing shortage has negatively affected communication, nurse patient relationships and timeliness of care and overall competence of nurse’s professional identity. For example, the Francis report in 2013 at the mid Staffordshire foundation trust investigation had bad indication on nurses, healthcare and all the staff in connection to the negative and culture that caused harm to patient. In order to resolve this issue the NHS has to reflect on the nurses’ professional identity, encourage nurses, provide support, and reorganise the work environment (Buerhaus, 2007). A research study conducted by Johnson and Johnson (2012), found that nurses fear that talking about their technical skills and medical knowledge somehow risks their reputation for caring and compassion.
for Introduction: “Discuss why a sociological perspective is important for nurses/midwives to adopt in their nursing/midwifery practice.” What is the relevance in studying sociology and how can one make use of their knowledge in clinical practice? Sociology outlines how our society developed, is structured and how it functions. It is the study of human society and the behaviour of us in it. (Crossman, 2017)
Police and prosecutors tend to downplay the violent assaults on health care workers unless someone is severely injured, even though 30 states have felony laws against it (Jacobson, 2014, p. 4). According to a descriptive study conducted by Lisa Wolf there were many instances in, which the legal, judicial system was unwilling to pursue charges against patients, or family members who assaulted nurses. Thus the focus on legislation to make an assault on health care workers a felony crime may have limited efficacy unless efforts are made to address society’s complacency toward violence against nurses (Wolf et al., 2014, p. 3). In Pennsylvania two house bill’s were introduced one in 2011 House Bill 1992.
Abstract A literature review was conducted to answer the following evidence-based research question "What are the effects of horizontal violence in the workplace on nurses and patient care?" The review includes a systematic review, two qualitative reviews, one quantitative review and a mixed method review that will aid in answering the research question while focusing on the effects of horizontal violence on nurses and what interventions could possibly be used to prevent this type of violence in the workplace. These studies were retrieved through various electronic databases in which will be discussed in the remainder of the literature review. The literature that was used were all published within the last five years with four of them being published in the United States and one from the United Kingdom.
1. What does health policy mean to you and does it impact your daily practice? Health care policy evokes has a negative condensation to me. It evokes this reaction because I am personally opposed to the government being involved in the health care delivery system any level. In my practice I have a seen a dramatic decrease in the number of elective surgeries after the implementation of the Affordable Care Act due to increased copayments.
Workplace violence is emerging as an important safety and health issue in today’s workplace. Workplace violence includes verbal assault, physical assault, and fatalities. In some cases the bully may not realize they are being the tormentor. Sometimes they may come from outside the work place harassing someone at the workplace. This is usually where the fatalities come in.
Philosophies According to Alligood (2014b), philosophies are specific theories that focus on one or more metaparadigm concepts in a wide spectrum philosophical way (p. 43). For a person to understand philosophies it is required to understand the knowledge type, metaparadigms. Metaparadigm Metaparadigm is the vast perspective of a discipline and a way to describe a concern specifically to a profession or department (Alligood, 2014b, p. 42).
Philosophy, as stated by Black (2017), “is a set of beliefs about the nature of how the world works. A nursing philosophy begins to put together some or all concepts of the metaparadigm” (Black, 2017, p. 177). According to the text, a nurses’ philosophy should consist of their values, beliefs, and attitudes and applied to the metaparadigms of nursing. My personal philosophy of nursing, which describes what nursing means to me, is based on the nursing metaparadigm concepts of person, environment, health and nurse.
Definitely, language barrier between the healthcare staff and the patient can hinder the appropriate delivery of care. What happen if you do not have a nursing staff that has the same background of the patient? As a culturally competent nurse, you know that there are other avenues to resolve that, like using a hospital interpreter or using a phone line for linguistic help. Spector (2013) stated that the Joint Commission of Hospital Accreditation and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services obligate that all health care providers be “culturally competent.” According to her, cultural competency entails that the health care provider understands and attends to the totality of the patient’s situation and it will need the combination of knowledge, attitudes, and skills.
“A Social Issue refers to an issue that influences and is opposed by a considerable number of individuals within a society. It is often the consequence of factors extending beyond an individual. ’’ ‘‘Social issues are the source of a conflicting opinion on the grounds of what is perceived as a morally just personal life or societal order. Different societies have different perceptions. Social issues are distinguished from economic issues; however, some issues (such as immigration) have both social and economic aspects.

The purpose of Martin Luther King writing the letter from Birmingham was because he wanted everybody to be equal and there should not be any slavery. The reason why Martin Luther King wrote this letter was because of what happened to the little girl,could not go into the park because blacks and only whites could go into the park. Martin Luther King wants everybody to be equal and nobody should be treated differently .My opinion to this writing is that this letter is about that everybody should all be the same and be treated the same.
