They mainly focuses on preventive care services—outpatient services that assist individuals with either staying healthy or managing chronic illness. The Inpatient Quality Indicators (IQIs)- The AHRQ IQIs provide information about the quality of medical care delivered in a hospital. This measure set represents the state of the art in measuring the quality of hospital care using inpatient administrative data. The IQIs include measures in the areas of inpatient mortality; utilization of procedures for which there are questions of overuse, underuse, or misuse; and volume of procedures for which there is evidence that a higher volume is associated with lower mortality. The Patient Safety Indicators (PSIs)- The PSIs are a set of quality measures that use hospital inpatient discharge data to provide a perspective on patient safety.

Furthermore, health providers make use of assessment tools to assess and evaluate patients in diverse phases, stages, and states of wellness, illness, stress, and life. Therefore, application of assessment tools are brilliant channels to assist health providers with enhancing patient care. There are diversities of assessment tools commonly used today such as: vital signs, physical and social examination, Apgar’s scale, Dubowitz /Ballard scale, and pain scales (N-PASS). This script strives to explore three assessment tools and how they augment the nursing practice and the quality of care patients obtain from health providers. Also, this paper will inspect the cost, validity, and easiness of use of each validation tool as well as the population the tool was intended for.
These elements identify specific practices nurses can use to deliver safe and quality patient-centered care ("What are nursing,"). These same principles have been ingrained in nurses throughout their journey in healthcare. To consistently improve safety and quality of care provided, health care facilities track trends in regards to nursing-sensitive indicators. By identifying areas of deficiency, an action plan or quality improvement project can be developed to correct and or revise current protocols as well as monitor the effectiveness of said changes over
Discuss the importance of nursing assessment in relation to the delivery of holistic care for a patient/client from your current practice experience For this assignment I will discuss the importance of an assessment tool in relation to a chosen patients holistic care needs. This will be done by exploring the significance of the tool and the strengths and weaknesses it imposes in terms of providing good care. Based on what the tool has informed the health profession I can then refer to what provisions would be put into place and how the care of the patient would be managed. To be able to fully understand what the assessment has provided for the patient, the effectiveness of it in meeting the care needs of the patient will be explored. I will focus upon the Braden Scale assessment tool throughout the essay with relevant literature included to support the meaning of the assessment and my understanding around it.
Patient assessment is vital to ensuring patient needs are met, their status is evaluated, and the best possible care is provided. Every patient is different and possesses unique needs. This concept analysis will examine the continued evolution of patient assessment. As the nurses treat the patient as a whole, they need to know what makes up the individual. The nurse starts by looking at the individual as a whole, is he or she clean and fed.
Critical Thinking in Nursing Practice Critical thinking plays a major part in our everyday decision making whether it is at work as a nurse or in our personal lives. In nursing, critical thinking is a vital skill needed to bring about excellent outcome, stand effective quality care, enhance patient’s safety and satisfaction. It helps nurses know when and how to intervene to situations in a timely and fruitful way “to become a professional nurse requires you learn to think like a nurse” (Critical Thinking and Nursing, 2013). As nurses, we make decisions daily while delivering care to our patients. To do this effectively, nurses should be able to acquire and utilize a higher and advanced level of thinking.
Strategic planning and the nursing process Suzanne Thorpe, RNC HCS 482 September 22, 2015 Betty Jones, FNP Nurses collect, interpret, analyze and use data on a daily bases to provide the needed nursing care for patients. The science of informatics is applied by turning the collected data into useable and understandable information. It is necessary that the information collected is relevant and useable otherwise the data would be meaningless. Informatics has a broad scope, and the use of this discipline within the nursing field has become necessary. As stated by Hebda & Czar (2013), “Nursing informatics may be broadly defined as the use of information and computer technology to support all aspects of nursing practice, including direct delivery care , administration, education and research” ( pg.
Patient education should be personalized and suitable to the educational level of the patient, treatment, and management requirements of the diagnosed disease to promote active involvement from the patient in their plan of care. Together, the nursing process and Bloom’s taxonomy help with the development of educational plans to stimulate patient participation. Cognitive Domain A nurse must first assess the patient’s intellectual aptitude to effectively allocate medical knowledge. Clark (2013) stated, “Cognitive domain is the recall or recognition of specific facts, procedural patterns, and concepts that serve in the development of intellectual abilities and skills” (2). The cognitive domain includes six categories that must follow sequential order before moving to the next stage.
How does service availability affect access of care? Service availability affects access of care in several ways. Availability of service will assist in structuring individual’s immediate health needs, determine care facility and choose caregiver. Because care is tailored to meet specific individual need, overall health of patient is managed. For example, a patient may be in a care facility as a result of a chronic illness, other health needs will also be addressed.
