The assessment of needs forms the background or starting point for further assessments against which improvements are compared. The assessment of needs is therefore the starting point for any decisions on care strategies. Assessment of needs in Asthma Physical: when my individual’s situation had worsened due to severe asthma attacks, her parents took her to the hospital. The doctor gave her a mobilizer which helps oxygen to pass through her blood in order to relax her. To prevent future attacks and to control them the doctor taught my individual’s parents how to do first aid such as helping the person to sit upright and loosening tight clothes and ensuring that the medication is taken during an asthma attack because it helps the service user to breathe better.

My practice placement is with the district nurses based in a busy surgery in a suburban area. I discovered that one of the nurses had an interest in continence management, and that part of her remit was to try to avoid unnecessary catheterisations. It was explained to me that this was achieved by the use of the bladder ultrasound scanner for diagnostic purposes- in other words to see exactly how much urine was in the patients bladder. It was also explained that the only other alternative to this technique was to actually catheterise the patient to assess the post voidal urine measurement. It now appeared to me that this clinical skill would be useful to use for this module essay as it encompasses many of the core themes- for example, communication, record keeping, clinical decision making and professional judgement.
Firstly, I am going to reflect on practice using Driscoll’s reflective model. The first stage is to describe what happened during my experience. While on my second placement, myself and a nurse had to bed bath patient A in a side room. The patient was in the side room due to having Clostridium Difficile (C-Diff) which was found after sending a loose stool sample. I had already gained consent from patient A for myself and the nurse to give a bed bath in accordance with the NMC code of conduct (NMC, 2008) and following this I went to collect the correct equipment to perform the task.
After telling the lady at the front desk my symptoms, I waited to be called. While waiting for my name to be called, I tried diagnosing myself and thought I must have a urinary tract infection. A few minutes later, a nurse came out of a back room and called my name. I was surprised because I was called before many people who were in the waiting room when I entered. The nurse took me to the back room and asked me to describe my symptoms once again.
