Stage 1. Description Under the heavy workload of nursing care, accidents are easily to cause. It is avoidable for nurse to reduce the accidents by enhancing the quality of care and be awareness on patient safety. During my practicum, there are some incidents that have not fully aware of patient safety on the nursing practice. When they take care of patient, they often forgot the practice of preventing harm from patient which influences the practice.
Literature shows that there are paybacks in transporting out bedside handover, it proposes that bedside handover helps to put up associations amid nurses and patients’ and it also amplified patient’s satisfaction. The literature nepotism bedside reporting as it; thwart nurse’s from typecasting patient’s and averts them from manufacturing judgemental explanation that can give erstwhile nurses a pessimistic attitude (Parker et al, 1992). Among all the varieties of nursing handover, bedside handover is the mainly time-efficient process (Webster, 1999) it endorses patient contribution (Walsh and Ford,
Knowledge and assessment skills are required to improve the patient safety (4, 17-19). Clinical pharmacist can play an important role in nurse training as an effective method to reduce food-drug interactions in hospitals (18). However, we found that patients who instructed by nurses were also at high risk for potential food-drug interactions. It means that they do not pay enough attention to nurse recommendation. But they should know that communicating with physicians and pharmaceutical consultants seems to be an effective ways to preventing food-drug interaction interactions (19).
1. What role did technology play in Claudia’s situation? What role did human error play in her situation? Technology played a vital role in this case, since the nurse call button and the wireless microphone made it easy for Claudia to get her message through to the clerk. Although as far as human error is concerned, initially the clerk was not at the desk, and then assumed the nurse's name which resulted in delay in attending to Claudia's call and subsequent injury to her body.
Neuroscience tells that each human being have a different and unique way of communicating, speaking, and interacting, and that humans have different experiences of conflicts that allows one human to connect with the other (Teitelbum, 2016). Having the power to communicate with one another is a privilege, but being able to connect and speak from the heart is a gift. Nursing is a profession that allows a person to give comfort and care through an effective communication which bridges in healing a person’s body. Being unable to positively communicate with the patient causes an enormous struggle in building a relationship between the patient and the nurse. This paper will point out the positive and negative communication a nurse used to interact with her patient and will offer alternatives to improve the nurse-patient relationship.
“Poor communication is at the root of most complaints made by patients against osteopaths. Effective communication is a two-way process which involves not just talking but also listening.” A2 1 found in the Osteopathic practice standards highlights the importance of interpersonal communication skills and the ability to adapt communication strategies to suit the specific need of a patient and enable the best possible results in treatment. Topics that can influence when working with a patient and what could potentially happen are verbal communication, non-verbal communication, law, consent and confidentiality. Having a full understanding of these skills and how to apply them to a patient in a clinical situation allows them to have confidence
Lancaster Advocacy (2006) cited in Community Care (2006), believe that “Older people can be particularly vulnerable”. Many, older people will go straight into a care environment straight after hospital. Some may have been treated poorly in hospital but “find it difficult to challenge doctors, nurses or social workers”. The ageing process can suppress people; consequently, they not strong enough to face the stress of taking on complaints systems alone (Lancaster Advocacy, 2006 cited in Community Care, 2006). Therefore, advocacy can ensure that if the person wishes to make a complaint, they will be well informed of the options open to them and will be able to access external independent support in order to pursue said complaint (Advocacy QPM,
However, according to Buppert’s piece, “If a state requires that a nurse practitioner have a collaborative relationship with a physician in order to practice, that collaborative relationship does not usually extend to cover evaluations and treatments performed by the nurse practitioner outside the practice setting” (Buppert; pg 1). In other words, the action of prescribing medication to a family member is seen as unethical. It goes beyond the restriction a collaborative relationship because the physician is not always aware of the prescriptions processed for APRN’s family members. These relationships can be seen as a good thing because they create a system of checks and balances between healthcare professionals and patients. Moral principles are important in the medical field in order to keep the emotions of healthcare professionals from clouding their judgement.
The Francis report is clear confirmation that when the 6C’s, a therapeutic relationship and ethical boundaries are ignored in patient care it becomes a major barrier that leads poor healthcare. (Department of Health, 2013). It is evident that a therapeutic relationship and effective communication underpins good healthcare (Brown & Bylund, 2008). Communication is therapeutic and building relationships is the cornerstone of nursing work, particularly with patients who have learning disabilities or mental health issues (Clarke, 2012). With such patients, nurses have to consider emotional factors as the patients may find it hard to listen, concentrate and communicate if they are emotionally, scared, anxious or maybe just do not understand the
While a patient navigator can guide a patient through the complex healthcare system, he/she can also facilitate interdependency such that synergy emerges between healthcare professionals. This process is depicted by the bidirectional arrow in Appendix A. To promote IDC, many literatures suggest incorporating interdisciplinary professional practice in curriculum and having interdisciplinary team training programs; however, these tactics do not address the immediate organizational constraints (resources, support, time and funding), which is another major culprit to ineffective IDC (Hermann, Head, Black & Singleton, 2016; O’Connor & Fisher, 2011). Professionals and even patients have reported time constraints as a barrier to developing team
