(2012) reviews that bedside reporting among nurse’s increases patient satisfaction and increases patient perception about teamwork. The purpose of this literature review was to show that handling patient information to another nurse at the end of the shift is an important clinical process which allows nurses to share important information regarding their patients to ensure a continued plan of care and satisfaction of the patients. Bedside handoff should be encouraged in order to exchange complete information about the patient that nurses are taking care of because it allows the patient to participate in his or her own plan of care. In addition, it allows the oncoming nurse to actually observe her patient and ask questions at the same time. According to Joint Commission’s 2009 National patient safety goals, bedside reporting is considered as a critical meeting for nurses.
Increasing Patient Satisfaction Through Nurse Rounding Nurse rounding is important to hospital-based practice because it directly impacts patient satisfaction (Blakley, Kroth, & Gregson, 2011). It serves as a method to improve quality of care by allowing nurses to routinely visit their patients and provide for any needs while also anticipating any safety concerns. Patients’ overall perceptions of hospital experiences are heavily dependent on how successful nurses are in satisfying the basic needs (Blakley et al., 2011). Rounding permits nurse-patient interaction and communication periodically, allowing observation and exchange of relevant information and also implementation of proper interventions. Nurses must practice rounding competently with compassion.
Effective communication in the professional setting is defined as building trust with the client, collecting information, expressing emotion and needs and supporting the client in decision making (Frenkel & Cohen, 2012). Communication connects to prior visits, includes family involvement, personal and professional experiences of the clinician and the patient. Effective communication is an important practice in nursing and other health care professions and aims to provide the best care that is available to the patient and improve client outcomes. This essay will explain, describe and discuss rapport building and non-verbal communication skills included in the video, as well as the importance in effective communication for all health care professions. The second component of the essay will be my reflection of the use of those skills in a recorded nurse patient situation.
The ANMC standards serve as a good guidance on the need to establish therapeutic relationship through effective communication. As nurses spend relatively more time with patients, they play a significant role in bridging a patient and doctor. Hence, it is would help for nurses to constantly hone their communication skills through experience over time.
I’m looking forward to preserve strong knowledge base, leadership skills and improve the evidence based practice skills to deliver positive patient outcomes. Caring is the best promising care you can provide for the patient. Every time nurse to patient contact is made, caring in nursing profession takes place. Caring is all about taking time to get to know your patient. Sadly ... ... middle of paper ... ...the knowledge and wisdom with others.
Banner healthcare system has developed a plan to help front-line managers with staff planning, scheduling, and support decision to deal with staffing problem. Another plan to improve their staffing was through benchmarking (Dennis Dahlen, 2011). Banner healthcare has employee scores of care coordinators and also intensified effort to reorganize role and responsibilities, not only to increase efficiency but to coordinate the medical care of professionals who collaborate to take care of patients at risk of complication (Galloro, 2005). This will help the organization to work with qualified and highly trained employees who will provide excellent nursing care to the community they serve. An appropriate nurse staffing will help this organization to work in a good position to ensure that patients receive quality care.
As nurse we must keep in mind that people may have beliefs and values that may be viewed different from the healthcare workers. Nurse must respected each patient beliefs and values. Health is individualized and personal that can be subjective and/or objective. Nurses must make individualized care plans and have goals to reach maximum health while preventing complications to promote health for all patients. There is a positive environment when everyone is collaborating and communicating to meet each patient individual
Interpersonal communication within the field of nursing is imperative in all areas to deliver a holistic positive outcome in patient care. Specifically, active listening, questioning with intent and reflective feedback ascertain an understanding of a patient’s health, illness, and healthcare. Active listening allows the patient to convey their concerns and presents the nurse with an understanding of the patient when implementing a personalised care plan. Questioning with intent builds an appreciation of the situation, and reflective feedback promotes improvements to enrich work ethics of the nursing cohort. Listening actively involves many different styles whereby information is gathered through verbal and non-verbal communication.
A healthcare team is made up of many different disciplines. For successful patient outcomes, the teams need to come together, communicate effectively, and be open to new ideas and viewpoints. It is important not only for the nurse to work side-by-side with other nurses, but to collaborate with patients and other professions in the health care system as well. All members of the healthcare team can benefit from the teams different backgrounds and experiences, which results in better care for the patient. In this paper, I will discuss the importance of communication skills, patient and nurse empowerment, and professional development.
The nurses ability to adapt to situations and provide individualized, competent, and quality care to each patient is essential to the positive relationship development with patients and their loved ones. A healthier ED environment for nurses can increase their overall job satisfaction, which ultimately results in better patient outcomes and satisfaction as
