How the ANA Code of Nursing Ethics would influence a final decision in each case study. With the patient with the hemorrhagic stroke, it is our responsibility to discuss with the patient’s family possible options in which they would feel comfortable taking. According to the Code of Nursing Ethics, “the nurse’s primary commitment is to the patient, whether an individual, family, group, or community” (ANA Code of Nursing Ethics). With the patient having no advanced directives, the decision is much harder to take. Ethics committees can be useful in this situation, because they can help explain the patient’s situation and provide possible answers to those hard questions.
Nursing Sensitive Indicators Nurse sensitive indicators included in this case are Mr. J’s use of restraints, complications of pressure ulcers, and patient satisfaction. Had the nurse who was caring for Mr. J been aware about the risks of pressure ulcer development with the use of restraints, the beginning stage of a pressure ulcer could have been prevented. Better RN assessment of Mr. J’s restraints, repositioning Mr. J every two hours and a thorough skin assessment should be done at every shift. The NA should be instructed to notify RN if they see anything out of the ordinary with patients, such as the redness to the lower spine of Mr. J. The nursing staff assigned to Mr. J will need additional training about restraints as far as appropriate use of restraints and how to care for a patient who is restrained.
1.3 Outline agreed ways of working that relate to managing pain and discomfort. To follow the patients care plan, a detailed explanation on how to care for the patient. This should include full medication details and any information on illnesses and diseases the patient may have. For instance Mrs Smith suffers with arthritis in her wrists, she is prescribed co-codamol on an as needed (PRN) basis, when she shows signs of distress or discomfort, staff may offer the stated dose of the medication on the box to the patient to relieve pain and discomfort. All this information would be available in the clients care plan and on the MAR-Sheet.
I am pro-choice but I have to say, abortion is a wide topic and it surprises me how women use abortion. I have heard of cases of women that use abortion as a birth control or just because having a less than a perfect child or just because a new baby doesn’t fit in their family. I always thought that abortion was an option because the life of a child would be miserable, for example, a teenager that was raped and she is unable to properly take care of her child; or a fetus diagnosed with a disease that would make the child suffering and the chances of survival are
The faces scale should be used last due to its frequency of misinterpretation (Herr, 2010). The alert patient will be able to vocalize their pain level, the location, duration, frequency, intensity and type of pain. The nurse will also be able to see differences in facial expression while speaking with the alert patient. The unconscious or not alert patient will be assessed differently. The nurse must be very observant and watch for signs of pain.
2. We are all people and we should all be sympathetic towards others. 3. According to the journal of Gynecologic Surgery volume 22, number 3, 2006 there are very many complications that come with this practice such as hemorrhage, wound infection, and more. E. Preview Statement: Let’s first cut into the meaning of Female Circumcision and then scatter the history of this procedure and lastly stitch together the places where female circumcision is still practiced.
The procedure requires a physician to insert a probe, called a transducer, into the woman. This transducer sends out waves which reflect off a woman’s body structure and in turn, produce an image of the fetus. After the procedure is complete, women must undergo a full twenty-four hours before they are actually allowed to go through with the abortion. Although this test is not in mandatory effect in any states, it was very near so. Virginia governor, Bob McDonnell, was open to this shameful procedure and pushed for it to be adopted in his state.
Some countries now with moderately restrictive laws permit abortions to protect a women's health, to end pregnancies resulting from rape or incest, to avoid genetic or other defects, or in response to social problems such as unmarried status or low income. Rape is the act of sexual intercourse with a woman without her consent or with a minor. Having a child resulting from the mother being raped causes many mental problems for the mother as the birth of the child could be a remembrance of what happen. Birth defects are any abnormalities in the structure or function of the fetus. With modern medical technology doctors can know if the fetus has any major defects in which occasion the fetus can be aborted.
Along with all these risks is the fact that with some procedures the vagina is almost completely closed, so later on in life the women will have to undergo multiple procedures so she can engage in intercourse and if she gets pregnant, she will have to be opened up for childbirth. This means that she may have to go through several opening and closing procedures, which increases her risk for immediate and long term health risks.
