The dentist could have been more considerate and explain to the student that the whitening process can only be done certain times and cannot be done when it is important for her. Explanation of the water pick can help the patient understand that it will help her and she can improve her hygiene one her own instead of keep returning. Scenario 3—Physical Therapy o What patient compliance issues are evident in this scenario? The patient should listen to the doctor to help lower the triglycerides in his blood stream and this process will help lower his cholesterol. The patient listening to the doctor’s Advice about the special diet and to avoid red meat is very advisable for this process.
While the physician did not believe that, at the time of treatment, the patient was competent to make this decision, the patient had an advanced directive that clearly stated that he did not wish to be intubated. Provision 2.1 of the ANA Code of Ethics also directs that the nurses primary concern is always for the patient and the best interest of the patient while Provisions 3.1 and 3.2 discuss the nurses responsibility for providing the patient with privacy and confidentiality, all of these provisions were ignored, to a degree, during the course of this scenario. While the scenario describes Mr. E as having a mild developmental disability we do not know his actual level of competence at the time the advanced directive and the medical power of attorney was signed. Just because he has a developmental disability does not mean that the disability was severe enough that the patient was unable to comprehend the choices he made when instituting these
One can only assume that this patient would not follow commands, and therefore, could not safely consume water to assess her swallowing function. Because of this reason, the nurse would not use the acetaminophen order. She would then look at using the standing order of Morphine. With any geriatric patient, the goal is to start low and go slow. The nurse would use the 0.05mg/kg IV dose of Morphine, and reassess her pain afterwards.
Using a laminated card and by displaying the Whooley questions discreetly I have implemented them at each clinic I have undertaken since. It is essential that the HV is both confident and competent in the delivery of the questions and committed to exploring any concerning outcomes fully. It has been suggested that many new mothers will not disclose feelings of low mood due to the perceptions a health professional may have if she does. Edhborg (2005) suggested women who are depressed after giving birth often struggle with tremendous guilt over their depression and believe that it means they are a bad mother, this inhibits their likelihood to disclose feelings of low mood to a practitioner. I have seen mothers react after presentation of the Whooley questions, with a sheepish “No” on occasion.
Reflective Writing Using Marks-Maran and Rose (1997) During my placement on Silver Birch Ward, for patients with dementia presenting with challenging behaviours, I noticed a few patients were visited by the hospital chaplain. During these visits which I briefly observed I noticed one patient didn’t appear to pay attention to the chaplain or even acknowledge his presence. For the purpose of anonymity and to uphold the nursing and midwifery council (NMC), code of professional conduct (NMC 2008), I have given the service user the pseudonym of Sally. This was normal behaviour for Sally, but the chaplain paid the same attention to her as he did to the others, despite the lack of interaction. I spoke to the patients associate staff nurse, as I felt these visits seemed almost pointless and I wasn’t even sure if Sally was religious, but could not decline the chaplain due to her lack of capacity.
Krauskopf should file for an appeal because he was not in control or supervising the nurse on duty while Mr. Smith committed suicide. Second Issue I. Should John Marshall Hospital file for an appeal? II. Yes, the should because they did not proximately cause Mr. Smith’s death.
I’m will use a personal experience as an example to explain. A patient recently diagnosed with prostate cancer was noncompliant with taking his medications and refusing his treatment. The patient verbalized that the nurses were giving him the wrong medicines and he would only take certain medicines. He also stated that he wanted his medicine left at the bedside. After different nurses had went in and tried working with this patient I went in.
Jenell Harris Dr. J. Thornton Final: Persuasive Research Paper 30 December 2009 “Granny Cams” Keeping Nursing Homes Honest Is video supervision considered unethical or a violation of privacy if the sole purpose is to ensure loved ones are not being mistreated and receiving proper care? Granny cams presence in nursing homes will protect and insure quality care for the elderly and provide evidence in cases against the assisted living facilities. These surveillance practices will help diminish the acts of malpractice and change the negative perception of the industry. There is absolutely no history that exists on granny cams since it is so recently developed. I am simply comparing the granny cams to nanny
Healthcare providers are to encourage strong communication between each other, for the good of the patient. In the Dana- Farber case the patient Besty Lehman died as a result of an overdosing from a chemotherapy drug. Mrs. Lehman’s death resulted from a miscommunication between the doctors who prescribe the chemotherapy, nurses that administer it, and the pharmacist that filled the order. The pharmacist who is to check the drug order for error’s failed to do so, and did not even contact the doctor to confirm if that was the dosage intended. Had there been a good communication between the pharmacy, and providers administering the drug the patient would have been alive.
There are individuals that have certain morals that they practice in their culture. For instance, I had a client that came into the salon wanting to get a pedicure but, she asked for a woman to do her pedicure as opposed to a man doing it because as part of her beliefs, a man should not be doing what she believed to be a woman’s job and we simply obliged by her reasoning, accommodating her respectfully. Let’s think of a situation in the healthcare field; there are different religions that practice medicine differently. If we were in the position that someone declines treatment because of their beliefs, even if it is for their better being, we would have to respect their choice and accommodate them to the best of our abilities. “11.2.
