Orem’s model is the self-care theory whereas Peplau’s uses the interpersonal theory. Orem advocate that the domain and limitations of nursing as a field of practice and a field of knowledge is placed along the Self Care Model and the conditions that exists when findings are made to build the patient’s plan of care. Pepluau’s interpersonal relationship theory developed so nurses can better know their patients. This theory also teaches how to better nurse patient relationships. Pepluau’s is comprised of four phases including: (1) orientation, (2) identification, (3) exploitation, and (4) resolution whereas Orem’s (1) self-care deficit, (2) self-care, (3) nursing systems.
There are some patient quality and safety measures which have been shown through research to be significantly affected by nursing care or “nurse-sensitive” measures. These are collected through a combination of medical record review and administrative data, according to common definitions. The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators is a leading voluntary system for collection and analysis of these data. (Nursing Quality Organization, 2011) “The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators® (NDNQI®) is a proprietary database of the American Nurses Association. The database collects and evaluates unit-specific nurse-sensitive data from hospitals in the United States.” (Nursing Quality Organization, 2011) Knowing about pressure ulcer prevention and the risk factors to look for would have helped the CNA to be more cognizant of the fact the this particular patient was in the beginning
According to Laureate Education (2010) nursing informatics is a major player in continuum of care and it consists of data, information, knowledge, and wisdom. The goal of this paper is to address Parkinson’s disease early onset symptoms, what is its relationship in the four-step continuum process, and how informatics plays a vital role in attaining wisdom on caring for this particular disease process. Disease Early Onset Symptoms In home health, I have seen a significant increase of patients diagnosed with early stages of Parkinson’s disease (PD). A five stage classification scale from Hoehn and Yahr is used to classify PD symptoms based on severity and disease progression. At stage I, the disease progression is usually slow in onset with mild tremors affecting one side of body.
Nursing Sensitive Indicators and Patient Care An analysis of the following nursing quality indicators should be deliberated: * Nursing hours per day * Unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP) hours per day * Pressure ulcer rates * Restraint use * Nursing and UAP education Pressure ulcer rates for the hospital and the unit – Review policy on pressure ulcer prevention education for UAP. Does the hospital need more education on pressure ulcer development and what to look for? An adequate understanding of the Braden scale along with making early communication between the RN and the UAP a priority, improves patient outcomes (Howe, 2008). Could an increase in RN presence prevent further skin breakdown? RNs can provide greater direct assessment of potential wounds.
