After assuring the support of my clinical coordinator and my senior leader, I spoke at a staff meeting about the benefits of couplet care. I spoke about the more efficient nursing practice we could provide and the benefits to patients as well to nursing. Many of the staff were surprisingly supportive of the approach.

This speaker answered many of their questions and solved many of the obstacles the staff
A people skill is very important to have in the medical office because you have to deal with patients every day.

The fact that they are so often finished with surgery right before dinner and bed underlines just how much doctors are accustomed to the convenience of the modern advances in medical technology.

And anything we do should help the physician to see patients.” Sandefur points to common diversions: “In larger organizations, especially those that are hospital-owned, it’s easy to think that the process supports accreditation, or compliance, or HIPAA.

Magnet Hospitals Do They Give Better Nursing Care Magnet Hospitals Do They Give Better Nursing Care A Magnet hospital is one where nursing delivers excellent patient outcomes, where nurses have a high level of job satisfaction, and where there is a low staff nurse turnover. Magnet status also indicates nursing involvement in data collection and decision-making in patient care delivery. In theory, Magnet nursing leaders value staff nurses, involve them in shaping evidence-based nursing practice, and encourage and reward them for advancing their nursing practice. Open communication between nurses and other members of the health care team and an appropriate personnel mix to attain the best patient outcomes and staff work environment are what should be found in Magnet hospitals.

In the Army I was taught and reinforce the value of following through, of keeping a high moral standard in accordance with wearing the uniform. There is no more important and constant use of my ethic than in my current career. As a health care professional I am faced with many ethical situations almost daily. One of the main dealings I face daily is ensuring that business ethics are adhered to.

Voice Activated Device/ MD Dictation Speech recognition devices are widely used by physicians because they provide many advantages in the health care environment that they practice. Due to managed care, doctors are restricted in the amount of time they can spend with their patients because they use most of their time doing paperwork that is required of them. Speech recognition systems such as dictation programs and devices have brought a new outlook for the application of technology in healthcare organizations especially among physicians. Dictation programs and devices allow doctors to use the time formerly spent on record keeping to see more patients. Many programs and devices exist today that physicians can choose from.
