As nurses we must also use ethics to provide sound care to our patients. The ANA has set forth a set of standards of nursing practice, including six standards of practice and ten standards of professional performance for nursing professionals to follow. The standards are the foundation of what I use to guide my decisions of care. When caring for a patient I follow these steps of assessment, diagnosis, outcomes identification, planning implementation and evaluation. Working on an orthopedic floor in the hospital I am employed by, I am very thorough with my assessment of patients.
Worksheet 3 Unit 302: Engage in personal development in health and social care settings Describe your work duties and responsibilities? (302:1.1) In my role as supervisor I must administer medication to residential residents. I am required to take part in all aspects of care, paperwork and liaise with external professionals. I am expected to attend resident reviews and ensure that all residents’ files are in good order and updated to reflect the current daily care needed. I must work closely with clinical lead nurse, nursing staff and management team.
• To ensure health and safety throughout the surgical procedure and to ensure all instruments, equipment and swabsare are accountable throughout the procedure. • Act as a link between the surgical team and other parts of the hospital so communication and management skills are needed. • In the recovery phase ODP’s are involved in all aspects of patient care in the recovery unit, including monitoring, supporting them and providing treatment until the patient has recovered. Then to assess the patient to evaluate whether they can return to the ward. • Then to evaluate all the three stages of the peri-operative care.
This article main purpose is to provide evidence of the importance and application of standardized terminologies in the Nursing practice. A patient care scenario will be used to identify how NANDA, NOC, and NIC elements are applicable. Data, information, knowledge, and wisdom (DIKW) framework will be used to create the patient care scenario. Standardized Nursing terminologies are used by most of healthcare settings as part of Electronic Health Records, and represent nursing data, information, and knowledge that can be stored in the electronic systems to be used as a reference by health care professionals. Scenario A female is referred to home health services for skilled nursing evaluation, and observation.
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.
This paper will address the foundational frameworks of QI, the various stakeholders’ definition of quality, the various roles of clinicians and patients in QI. This paper will also address why quality management is needed in health care industry, accrediting and regulatory organizations involved in QI. The Foundational Frameworks of QI The foundational framework of QI is a continuous process that focuses on multiple relationships such as implementing improvements and improvements in processes. Some areas that organizations may concentrate their improvement efforts on are the reduction of medication errors, reduction of emergency room wait times or clinical measures such as breast cancer screenings or HIV testing. Walter Shewhart developed the Plan, Do, Study Act cycle used as the basis for planning and direction performance improvement efforts (Ransom, Joshi, Nash, & Ransom, 2008).
This plan should include details that would identify what an emergency is, how it would be communicated to the staff, and what arrangements will be made for the facility. We are also in compliance with our Human Resources department. The Human resources department ensures that all staff members and workers at a hospital facility are competent to undertake the task their job description provides. They also handle the responsibilities and evaluate performances. Infection Prevention and Control department assigns a team that is responsible for developing a plan for infection prevention and control activities.
When nurses reach this level they understand how medications affect the body and why they are used and if they are seeing the expected outcome. This leads to the top of the domain which is create, nurses at this level are active participants within the health care team devising a plan of care for their individual patients. The affective domain or the feelings domain is made up of five subclasses. The first of these classes is receiving, at this level nurses are ready to learn and receive whatever is necessary for them to be successful. As learning progresses nurses start to respond to and value information, organize what is learned and finally internalize.
In this case, the patient presented with a productive cough lasting over two. I used a holistic approach to assess the patient in general ensuring all systems relating to his presentation were covered and not rushing to a conclusion hastily which is recommended by Crumbie, (2006). The history taking was based on the Calgary Cambridge framework (Krutz, et al 2005) this involves five stages to help the nurse develop a holistic approach to the patient and empowers the patient to actively participate in their care. The first stage is initiating the session which involves preparing for the consultation, building a nurse patient rapport and gathering the reason(s) for presenting. The second stage is the information gathering stage exploring background information, exploring biomedical model and exploring the patient’s perspective.
YIT1: Task 1 Personal Mission Statement Regulatory Agencies and Professional Nursing Organizations The functional differences between a regulatory agency and a professional nursing organization can be explained as follows. A regulatory agency establishes guidelines and rules related to the care of patients. According to Cherry & Jacob, there is an “emphasis revolves around performance measures of patient outcomes and results of practice patterns.” Giving “quality principles into health care regulatory standards and requirements”. (2011)(p. 450). This means that the agencies identify needs and improvement areas pertaining to the care of the patient to ensure standards throughout all hospitals and health care facilities.
