An actual nursing process is a practice of an outcome-oriented execution to find the best possible care for a person. When a patient is considered terminal or terminally ill it is important to assess the clients understanding of the current situation, personal preferences and requests. The following case study can give a better understanding of the nursing process in action. A 75-year-old terminally ill patient has begun hospice care. He has been fighting some form of dementia for several years and advanced dementia for at the last four, at which point he was admitted to his current Nursing Home.
Research Critique Qualitative Karrie Knott Grand Canyon University: NRS433 Introduction to Nursing Research February 19, 2017 Research Critique Qualitative Study Problem Statement Patients who are at the end of life face many obstacles and require a multi-disciplinary approach to care. Patients and their families make decisions and arrangements such as; living wills, whether they would prefer to be at home or in a facility, or the degree of comfort (pain management) they wish to receive. These issues should be addressed by the healthcare professionals with the understanding that each person has the right to die with comfort and dignity. One of the most controversial issues to end of life (EOL) care is pain and symptom management (PSM). Patients and their families have the right to be educated on PSM to assist their decision in regards to their comfort and to ensure that their family members are aware of the treatments available.
Running Head: Orem’s Self-care theory 1 Dorthea Orem’s Self Care Nursing Theory Rebecca Robinson Central Methodist University OREM’S SELF CARE THEORY 2 Abstract This paper will explore the work of Dorthea Orem’s Self Care Theory and how this theory can be applied to nursing today. Health care providers become more challenged to care for an increasing number of patients each day, having the patient population assist in their care and wellness will become a necessity in health care. Involving the families will also become important to the care of the patient as well. This is the current trend. Only the acutely ill patients are kept for long stays as an inpatient in the hospital today.
Personal Perceptions Caring for terminally ill patients can be a daunting task for all involved, whether it is for the patient, friends or family, or the nurse or other clinicians. It is important to analyze one’s own feelings about disease, its progression, and death when caring for others because a patient’s quality of life and functioning can potentially be affected by the nurse’s personal attitudes. Exhibiting judgments can cause discomfort, feelings of helplessness and/or sadness, which can impede quality of life for patients. The role of the nurse is to help the patient as he or she progresses through the stages of illness, acting as a patient advocate, meanwhile providing additional support for the patient and his or her loved ones. The role of the nurse is to attempt to alleviate discomfort, restore health, and to not cause any additional undue harm.
1. What are the components/elements of ACE@25? * Quality of care * Medical errors * Patient safety * Average length of stay (ALOS) post different procedures * One-year survival post organ transplant * Mortality rate post major surgeries like CABG * Complication rate associated with healthcare * Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) * Healthcare Associated Infection rates * Patient satisfaction with pain management * Hospital acquired infection rates 2. What elements of these can be linked to individual performance for the category of nurses in a multispecialty hospital similar to Apollo? Elements | Activity performed | Linking to Individual Performance | Quality of care | Effectively treating the patient, following proper protocol for treating the patients.

Vivian realizes this issue when she is treated as a cancer patient with the full dose of chemotherapy. Dr. Harvey Kelekian and Dr. Jason Posner treat her as a disease-carrier, rather than an individual. This changes her views on life and causes her to reevaluate herself. Bearing realizes this issue as she narrates the play and shows us her opinion through monologues and statements. Vivian reflects on her actions with students and reassesses her life through flashbacks.
Skills in how to communicate effectively with both the pediatric patient and their parents are important for a nurse to foster to maintain good therapeutic relationships. Person centred care becomes family centred care when babies and children are the patients. The dependent nature of the patient increases the need for parental responsibility and advocacy for the child. It is important for all members of the family to be taken into account when nursing a pediatric patient, especially the primary caregivers and siblings. Chochinov, 2007 (cited in Cornwell & Goodrich, 2009), states simply that compassion is ‘a deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the wish to relieve it.’ Pediatric patients and their families are highly sensitive to the compassionate nature of health care professionals and a successful therapeutic relationship with them depends on the sensitive, compassionate care offered by the nurse.
