Comparison Question number One The comparison of two nursing positions is a BSN prepared ICU staff nurse and an ICU nurse educator with the education preparation in MSN in Nurse Education. Both nurses are required to have a nursing license for the state they work in in order to be employed as a nurse. Other certifications that are required in order for nurses to care for patients in the surgical intensive care unit (SICU) are: Basic Life Support/Advanced Cardiac Life Support (BLS/ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC). These licenses and certifications are required whether a nurse has an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN), a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), or a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). On any nursing unit, both of these RNs are able to care for patients, go over patient, family, and discharge teaching, and be in charge of other nurses.
These forms must be submitted to Medicaid and Medicare in red ink. They are used for outpatient visits that have a same day discharge or less than 24 hours stay. What types of patient information, codes and insurance information are entered on each of the bills? The CMS-1500 and UB-04 forms use basically require the same information: Billing and provider name and address, The pay to address, medical records numbers, Federal tax ID number, patients name and address, insurance plans the patient is covered by, diagnostic and procedure codes, place of service code, date of service providers information, statement covers period, sex, admission date, admission hours and discharge time. Admitted for, charges, and descriptions.
Clinical Development Day at Emergency Room As part of the N4123 clinical experience, I was in ER on 25th September 2013. The purpose of this paper is to increased my understanding of all health care services provided to clients and families, explore the roles of health care team in ER and to explore changes in health care practice in ER setting. I arrived at the unit on time at 7:30 am. I was assigned with one of the nurse working in ER. I came to know how the system works while people are seeking health care services from ER.
Once a patient has been admitted to a particular ward, it is the responsibility of the Medical and Senior Nursing team to develop a monitoring system tailored to each individual patient in relation to their specific medical needs. The policy “Recognition and Response to Acute Illness in Adults in Hospital” outlines the responsibilities of all staff involved in the recording of physiological measurements (North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust 2012). The observations must be recorded in the in the Physiological Track and Trigger Chart, and carried out by other healthcare staff such as Healthcare Assistants at the intervals specified on this chart. The Physiological Track and Trigger Chart, utilises a system in which all measurements are given a score between 0 and 3, the higher the overall score is the clearer the indication of how unwell the patient is. This score is known as the Early Warning Score (EWS) and is used in order to ensure all staff can recognise and report when a patient is becoming more poorly.
It is responsible for the writing of the Nurse Practice Act, which governs the scope of practice for all levels of nursing (ANA, 2012). The nurse practice act states exactly what a nurse can do at all different levels of nursing, what type of nurse can practice in what type of setting and what type of education various levels of nursing require. The board imposes these rules and regulations with the intent to protect patients from unsafe nursing (ANA 2012). BRN regulates nurses in a variety of settings and attempts to protect consumers in a variety of ways (ANA, 2012). The regulatory agencies have a multitude of pre licensure programs and many advanced practice programs to oversee which includes educational requirements, scope of practice, issue and renewal of license, issue certificates and verify information on all
These statistics represent individual people who have their own needs, but share the common need for their healthcare professional to provide expert care to them during their time in hospital. Castledine (2004) tells us that all nurses should carry out a patient assessment automatically as this is the first stage in ascertaining the health of the patient. A past medical history should be obtained and a physical assessment made as
PAs also may make house calls or go to hospitals and nursing care facilities to check on patients, after which they report back to the physician. The duties of physician assistants are determined by the supervising physician and by State law. Aspiring PAs should investigate the laws and regulations in the States in which they wish to practice. Many PAs work in primary care specialties, such as general internal medicine, pediatrics, and family medicine. Other specialty areas include general and thoracic surgery, emergency medicine, orthopedics, and geriatrics.
Sarah arrived at the hospital with a teacher from the ECC. Therefore it is assumed that the ECC would have a signed consent form allowing them to seek medical care for Sarah (Department of Education, Science and Training 1993). The ECC will also be able to provide documentation of any pertinent information regarding Sarah’s health requirements. This gives the medical team initial basic information such as allergies or current medications and allows them to conduct an initial baseline assessment (Staunton & Chiarella 2003). The nurse admitting Sarah will require consent from Sarah’s parent or legal guardian who in this case is her aunt.

When comparing the LPN and the RN the Ohio Board of Nursing differentiates their roles by saying the LPN will contribute to the nursing process and the RN shall apply the nursing process. The LPN collects and reports objective and subjective data to other members of the healthcare team. The RN may delegate the collection of that data and then in an accurate and timely manner identify, organize, and interpret the relevant data. The LPN can contribute to the planning of the care plan, however it is the RN who develops, maintains, and modifies it. Implementation of the nursing process is again defined by the education.
