Question 1.interface sketch that is being evaluated: [pic] i) The system allows you to prescribe more than one drug to a single patient Justification: Relates to helpfulness - Doctors need to use their time effectively and the system requires tasks to be repeated then it will become a hindrance rather than a help. Question: Can you prescribe multiple drugs to a patient using this interface? ii) The system shows the user who the patient is that they are prescribing medication for. Justification: Relates to safety - If the wrong medication is prescribed to a patient then this could cause an adverse reaction. Question: iii) The system prevents dosage errors being made Justification: Relates to safety - too much or too little of a drug would prevent the medication from being effective or be potentially dangerous.
ETHICS CASE STUDY BRANDI M C UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX In healthcare many things go off of ethics, every healthcare worker has to understand that. In this case study Jerry Mccall has to decide whether to call in a medication refill without consulting the doctor first. Many things need to be considered like legal consequences, patient complications, consequences for Dr. Williams. All of these could have grave consequences for Jerry. In this case study Jerry Mccall takes a call asking for a prescription refill, the person requesting the refill isn’t a normal patient of Dr. Williams he states he is a close friend.
If you are not technologically savvy and do not know how to use the program, then it defeats the purpose of trying to help the patient and can lead to errors in judgment and advice, as well as distrust of the patient. Also, because of the limited amount of memory space, it is important for the nurse to know what information is the most important to put in the chart, and when old records can be erased (for example, labs that are always repeated, you only need 2-3 sets to show the
Hypertension also called “high blood pressure” is often referred to as the silent killer because those that have it often don’t experience any symptoms. This paper will cover the diagnostic testing, the treatment and prognosis of hypertension, complementary and alternative treatment associated with hypertension, and patient education to help Vicki to manage her newly diagnosis of hypertension and ways she can manage it with her busy schedule. There really isn’t any set diagnostic testing that can be done to diagnosis hypertension. The only way one can tell they have hypertension is to have it checked with regular doctor visits. The pressure is measured by using a sphygmomanometer.
We Can But Should We Chrissy Hensley Chamberlain College of Nursing NR361-14898: Information Systems in Healthcare May 2013 We Can But Should We Many people are questioning the use of QR codes in healthcare. There are many people who do not understand the use of QR codes and how they can be beneficial in a healthcare setting. According to Svensson, “Not everyone knows what a QR code is. If the public is unaware of the barcode and it’s capabilities, it’s not going to work in your advantage. Since the implementation of the QR code is a relatively new concept, it may still take a while before every consumer has a firm grasp of its purpose.” (Svensson, 2012.)
Unlike medications, supplement Dietary Supplements 3 makers do not have to prove their products are safe or effective. The FDA, however, can force a supplement from the market if it proves it is unsafe (nutrition.about.com, n.d.). Dietary supplements can be good for the body if there are substances lacking in the body. If a person has diseases, supplements can help control them. It is best to consult a doctor before taking supplements because they can interact with medications, causing bad reactions.
How do we know something and how does that coincide with how we can prove that claim? Our accuracy of knowledge and confidence of proving that knowledge is based on the justification that we have to support that category of knowledge. These examples of justification can be categorized by personal experience, secondary sources and emotion. These forms of justification interact and correspond with one another to create an ultimate conclusion that will result in a piece of knowledge. In the question being analyzed, we are meant to find out how to determine the “knowledge that we value”.
This side debates that there is no need for imprisonment, there just needs to be treatment programs in place that teach moms about the devastating effects of abusing drugs while pregnant and assisting them with getting the proper physicians and medications to come off from drugs. However there is a lot more research done recently on what stage of pregnancy a baby is most at risk and the result is that we just don’t know. There is no set amount and no set time frame that it is okay for a baby to be exposed to drugs or alcohol and still be safe from birth defects. The problem with this still lies in the fact that a large percentage of people that enter drug treatment actually graduate from the program. There is a high drop out rate in treatment centers.
Applying these techniques and understanding that the best decision is one based on what we choose to perceive as the best choice given the information and circumstances. Decision-making is a process that starts with exploration of the possibilities and then concluding on a solution. Virtually all decisions are made in an environment with at least some uncertainty. However, the degree will vary from relative certainty to great uncertainty. There are certain risks involved in making decisions.
