Unit SHC36 Promote person centred approaches in health and social care 2.2 How do you use care plans when applying person centred values A person and their needs should be at the centre of the support process. A carers role is to make sure that a person has every opportunity to state how they wish their needs to be met. This is especially important when the issues regarding the person are difficult or of a sensitive nature. Person centred working is about putting people in control of their lives, whether it be a new service user or a person who has been “stuck in the system” for many years. Most places will have a format (usually a care plan) for identifying needs such as: * What they are able to do independently * Personal Care * Nutritional Needs * Daily Life * Choice and Control * Risks * Medications * Work, leisure and learning * Physical and mental health It is important that everything is included in the care plan.
Now she is under the care of a care provider. It is the task of care provider to ensure personal hygiene of the patient. So, as a part of her job she has to clean her (the patient). But the patient is unwilling to give permission to the care provider to clean her as it hurts her. Moreover, the cleaning is very important to ensure personal hygiene of any patient.
Accreditation Audit Task 1 2-13-2012 Nightingale Community Hospital (NCH) has developed procedures to be compliant with the Joint Commission (JC), and while most Priority Focus areas have been addressed there are some gaps needing attention. Each Priority Focus will be discussed here, detailing successes as well as areas for improvement. Joint Commission Standard: UP.01.01.01 Conduct a preprocedure verification process. NCH does provide a detailed, step-by-step protocol to verify the patient and procedure prior to operation. The protocol spells out exactly when these steps must be followed, such as when the patient is transferred to another caregiver (not solely before surgery).
The CQC henceforth published its guidance material, Essential Standards of Quality & Care. The CQC later published the Health & Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2010, which contains definitions of the services and activities that people must be registered to provide, alongside details of standards that have to be observed. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is another body who provide strict rules that are to be followed correctly. According the the Government website (direct.gov.uk), the HSE is: “the national independent watchdog for work-related health, safety and illness. It acts in the public interest to reduce work-related death and serious injury across Great Britain's workplaces.” There are several further Acts and Regulations that all parties in the Health & Social Care industry are to adhere to, including: Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 This covers a range of issues relating to health, safety and welfare across different sectors and industries.
Aiii: The principles to be followed for safe moving and handling are that there needs to be risk assessments and procedures done to minimise the risk of injury to the employee. This may include recommended amount of people required to move an object, specific equipment needed and training to safe about handling equipment safety. Aiv: It is important to follow the care plan and communicate with each individual when assisting and moving as moving them incorrectly may cause them to be injured or discomfort. You need to inform and discuss with the person in concern about how to be moved, provide help and equipment when required. Av: Doctors are responsible for prescribing medication.
State your understanding of the important considerations when releasing information to the various groups who may request patient information from a health facility. Each group must be discussed separately, giving the type of information that can be released and the procedure that must be followed when releasing information.

Introduction The contents of this essay are threefold. Firstly I need to take a look at a case study for Mr X then identify and explain his issues, secondly devise a course of treatment for him, and finally take into account any ethical issues. After an initial read through of the client’s case study it is possible that there may be a depression issue. If this is my conclusion I need to ask if I am the correct person for him to see at this moment in time. “All practitioners undertake to remain aware of their own limitations and wherever appropriate, be prepared to refer a client to another practitioner or medical advisor who might be expected to offer suitable treatment,”(as stated in The National Hypnotherapy Society Code of Ethics under Client Welfare.)
BTEC Unit 4: Principles of Safeguarding and Protection in Health and Social Care. Outcome 1 Explain the different actions to take when abuse is suspected and alleged. Identify ways of ensuring that evidence of abuse is preserved. Contain an appropriate image. Where a member of staff in a care setting believes a vulnerable adult is being abused it must be reported immediately to his/her Manager or senior, unless that person is himself under scrutiny, in such a case the matter must be reported to higher management.
They will also need to monitor for any side effects or adverse reactions to his medications and report them to his physician as needed. Family members will need to ensure Mr. Trosack has adequate supplies for dressing changes and blood glucose monitoring. Mr. Trosack will need transportation from the hospital and to follow up appointments and physical therapy. The family will need to evaluate whether or not the safety issues discussed above have been resolved and may need to collaborate with the occupational therapist to ensure Mr. Trosack can safely move around in his apartment. They will need to provide groceries and take out the trash daily as Mr. Trosack is unable to do so.
Questions of confidentiality, privacy, risk taking and generally the exercise of personal choice are all ethical dilemmas encountered and processed on a daily basis in the context of social care. Ethics is also the process that health services follow in order to explore, justify and effect change - for instance if a new procedure, drug or surgical technique is being developed it must at some point be used with patients. The examination of potential positive and negative effects or outcomes, and the provision of appropriate, accessible information about these to the patient to enable informed consent, is an example of applied ethics. Social and educational activities Ideally, care workers need to make care environments not merely "tolerable", but enjoyable and fulfilling for the clients; this might involve carrying out social and educational activities with those in care. Students of H&SC will need to learn about how to run games, activities, reading groups, excursions and so on, so that the people receiving care get the most out of it as they possibly can.
