Peplau created a theory for interpersonal relationship between the nursing and the patient. This theory explains that the nurse and the patient come into their encounter as strangers who both have preconceived ideas, beliefs, values, experiences that shape their interaction. The nurse should evaluate his/her feeling, emotions, behaviors and thoughts prior to and after his/her interaction with the patient. This will encourage an environment that is free of judgement and allows for a healing (Lutzen, 2015). When I first started taking care of patients from the Middle East right after 911, I really had to evaluate how I cared for these patients.
I believe, reporting the occurrence of an adverse event should be rewarded, since it is the initial stage of preventing future events. Quality is a measure of standard that establishes the degree of excellence. In health care, quality culture is related to the process and outcome of care. To enhance the quality of care, adverse events are analyzed in order to develop mitigation measures. Quality improvement is expected to be a
In the first article, the main focus is the cause of errors and what can help nurses to not make mistakes anymore. As a student nurse myself, I can relate and see the ways that these distractions occur. This article gave me an insight of what not to do and what I need to look out for. In Let 's do no harm: Medication Errors in Nursing Part 1, the article is more about the costs of medication errors and how it leads to the eventual loss of trust by clients in the healthcare system. It also talks about small ways that can contribute to making mistakes.
Nurse Ratched appears to be caring and well intentioned but she may still believe strongly that in spoiling McMurphy plans for change and various other schemes she is acting for the greater good of her patients. However, when McMurphy challenges against her she become even more "dangerous", she shows her resilience against his plans and doesn 't flinch from taking measures to ensure continued devotion to the rules she has set. Indeed it is only at the end that we see just how far she will go to enforce her authority which include the rules set by her for the ward, leaving aside individual patients interests; rights and welfare merely in an effort to establish her own position as the head of the
This writer explained the reason for the intent to discharge due to the physical altercation and advised the patient, she can request a hearing to address the discharge. The patient refuses to fight the intent to discharge in writing because her responds was, " I wanted to leave here anyway. " This writer was offended by the patient comment and address it immediately as the patient then apologized. Patient, again, was emotional and showed a lot of frustration about the whole altercation.
Even though, the patient did not want to have the surgery, it was due to the pressure from her daughter that she wanted to go for it. My goal was to provide compassionate and therapeutic care, looking at the patient holistically, providing comfort to the patient, and analyzing patient response to treatment. Once I recognized that the family needs help in making informed decision, I provided them with resources who can help them, and communicated with our health care provider about the family’s willingness to see palliative care team. The other theoretical frame work used is the comfort theory by Katherine Kolcaba.
It is practiced in our hospital however, it is limited and not practicing effectively. Nurses would however utilize support from collegues and the incharge (informal supports) rather than from organization in structured way. Significantly, nurses need to feel safe and supported when they been assaulted and victimized. This cam be achieved through formal support program like debriefing system following the incident. Additionaly, it is necessary that
The Utilitarian Principle speaks about morality concerning the majority; most good, least harm. That was the ideology of Erin Brockovich. She taught herself of the fallacies PG&E was under; sacrificing for the good of most, disregarding her personal life under which were influenced the lives of her three infants along with her boyfriend. She devoted herself to her job, making sure the majority that need her help or were unaware of the happenings, get a share of influence and say over the matters pertaining to their lives with their involvement to a superior
In addition, it is important for nurses to be accountable for their own behaviours, which relates to my situation. I did not stop to reflect my behaviour, as I was trying to complete the skill perfectly. By not creating a therapeutic relationship I put the client in a degrading position. My thoughts about this situation have improved after reading this article. It suggests new reflective exercise for the future, as well as describing how nurses have to trust the patient as much as the patient trusts them (Price, 2017).
How to Interpret the Standards of Ethical Coding" means to me is as a coder job it is very important that they code properly. These standards mean the coders should be accurate, honest, fallow the guidelines and policies and interpret the providers notes. Coding improperly would not jut affect us put it will affect as whole such the healthcare team, the patients, organization and the public as a whole. To me this means its very important to not just assume that this might be the right thing to code. its significant to check with the provider before doing anything we are not sure of because this might lead to big problem.
In Sam Wiesenthal’s novel, The Sunflower: On the Possibilities and Limits of Forgiveness, the author puts readers into a scene of what he had experienced when he was forced into a concentration camp during the Holocaust. In this novel, Wiesenthal experiences many horrifying things in the concentration camp, especially death. In this particular scene of the novel, Wiesenthal encounters a dying Nazi soldier who asks for his forgiveness. As the dying soldier is speaking to Wiesenthal, he mutters, “ ‘I shall die, there is nobody to help me and nobody to mourn my death’ “ (Wiesenthal 27). Wiesenthal had to face a dilemma when this wounded soldier was asking him for help.
Forgiveness Forgiveness in “Voices from the Wall” was about Kim Phuc, who was in a infamous picture from the Vietnam War when she was a girl. She had napalm ( a devastating weapon ) dropped on her village and were forced to flee. Her clothes then burned off and left major burn damage to her skin. Later on in life, she said she had no anger to the man who dropped the napalm and would forgive him if she ever got the chance to meet him. After reading this, I thought we should all follow her example when we are needing to forgive a person.
