In this experiment, we are required to measure different substances and figure out some of its physical properties. Many times through a substance’s physical properties one is able to identify it. We found physical properties such as mass, volume, density, and specific gravity. Mass and volume are easily identified but density and specific gravity requires a formula to identify, which are the following: Density= Mass/Volume (g/mL) Specific Gravity= Density of a Substance/Density of water at 4°C (unitless) Procedure: The entire procedure of this experiment was followed from the CHL 161 Laboratory Manual, La Salle University. Experimental Results: The attached data and results sheet contains all information
SPC Kimberly West SGT Monika Woodard The Importance of the Proper Documentation of Biological’s in the Sterilization Department A question that often comes up in discussions about record keeping is “What type of documentation do we need to keep for our steam sterilization process, and how should information be recorded?” It is important to know not only what to document, but also the purpose for retaining pertinent information. Record keeping or documenting the biologicals is an essential component of an effective sterile processing department’s quality assurance program. Whether the sterilization process is being done in a hospital’s SPD or Operating Room, essential information needs to be documented. Documentation, also commonly referred to as record keeping, documents materials that have been processed and the results of the sterilization process monitoring. While this might sound easy, proper documentation requires diligence by everyone involved as this data provides critical information for tracking processed instruments to the patient and assessing the reliability of the sterilization process.
Healthcare applications of Chemical reactions Discussion 1 * What is the difference between biochemical, pharmaceutical, and diagnostic chemical reactions in healthcare? The basic aims of health profession are to get the understanding and maintenance of health and understanding and effective treatment of diseases. Biochemistry greatly effects on both aspects. Biochemical studies clarified many aspects of health and disease, and conversely, the study of various aspects of health and disease has opened up new areas of biochemistry. Diagnostic chemical reactions are those used for medical testing purposes such as a glucose tolerance test.
Since the steroid therapy document is being made to other hospitals or scientist and there are no other competing instructions, ethos is not as necessary as in the blood transfusion error letter. The main source of ethos in the blood transfusion letter arises from the seriousness of life or death while performing the transfusion. Pathos is also used vastly throughout both documents. Both appeal to several of the audience’s values, including:• Life• Time• Health• Safety• AwarenessFinal ThoughtsBy completing a rhetorical analysis of these two documents, I have better knowledge with the structure and purpose of creating a memo out of external information such as an instruction document or an error letter. I noticed that these documents are highly important to performing medical tasks and procedures that allow patients to feel comfortable and in the blood transfusion case, to live.
Acute Renal Failure NU270 Assignment 6.1 7/26/2012 Patients that are in acute renal failure have many obstacles that they are faced with. The nurse should follow evidence based interventions when caring for them. Electrolyte imbalance, blood loss, infection, and nutrition are just a few of the issues the nurse must be educated about. It is important for the nurse to impose every intervention available to reduce the risk of infection in the patient experiencing acute renal failure. “Make sure appropriate hand hygiene is used.
How might concepts from this simulation relate to your workplace? The ethical issues presented in the simulation are whether to warn consumers and what information to provide about the contaminant in product distributed and sold. There was also an issue of how to handle new FDA standards that affect the sell of products in the United States as well as foreign countries. In making my decision on how to ethically address the issues, I first gathered all the facts. From the lab results email, I was informed of the health risks to consumers and who was increasingly affected by the contaminant.
Introduction Blood pressure is the force exerted by the blood against the walls of the vessels in which it is contained It is essential in every assessment of a patient to get the baseline vitals (Valler-Jones, Wedgbury, 2005). Accurately taking these levels can greatly assist healthcare providers in diagnosing possible illnesses or diseases that a patient may have. That is why it is imperative to accurately take a patient’s blood pressure. Misreading a patient’s blood pressure can lead to wrongly diagnosing a patient with hypertension, hypotension or many other abnormalities. There are many techniques in which to measure blood pressure and there has been much debate on which technique is the most accurate.
This can alleviate their stress about tests that might involve threatening diseases. Having all medications labeled in containers will reduce medication errors for patients. This will help health care providers to see what is in each container, syringe and vial at all times. This goal is a crucial one in keeping medication errors to a minimum (The Joint commission, 2011). A vital area need for infection control is ensuring hand hygiene guidelines are strictly followed.
It is therefore crucial by which the nurses can figure out themselves in order to be able to establish on existing strength and applicable forthcoming action. As a care assistant I have worked in prevent infection, for instance through maintaining hand hygiene. However, I unfortunately witnessed bad handwashing technique by the qualified member staffs and among my colleague in many times which has conclusively brisked me to do my own research. I belief that by doing this I could able to expand my knowledge and skills in those areas of imperfection with enable me to provide high standard of evidence based care to the patient. In this essay I have not followed any reflective model as on one hand, I found difficult to cover all aspects of this ample topic and the other hand I will not describe only one particular event because there were many occasions which shown wrong pratice of hand washing.
