Mrs. Farrington was constantly worrying about allowing him out of the house or be with other kids. The hospital constantly kept correcting this behavior by stating that she needs to allow him to be like other kids but sometimes it was her first instinct to prevent hospitalization. Mainly Cody is hospitalized due to weight loss or to clean mucus out of his lungs completely. Unlike Mrs. Farrington who has to deal with the medical treatments daily, her husband is in more denial. When Cody becomes sick he understands to call the hospital but Mr. Farrington has no understanding of Cody’s medicine and such.
This on resident was very confused, so I asked if they could talk and all he did was shake his head, continuing to cough the food out. I had been CPR certified, but never came across a situation where I was required to perform it. My heart was racing and my nerves had taken over my ability to think. I was the only C.N.A in that dining room, the other residents were staring at me, I had to take back control, and put my skills to the test. Therefore, I told the resident that I was going to help him, and I began performing the Heimlich maneuver.
I realized how whenever the patient’s mom was out of the room, the child was behaving appropriately for his age, but when the mom would come back into the room, the child would behave differently. 6. What actions by staff did you observe today that you would like to use in your future nursing practice? My nurse not only cared about her patients, but also for the care helpers that were working with her. Most hospitals that I have done my rotations at the nurses are not very kind to the Techs.
Frequently in health care you hear of stories where nurses follow a questionable directive from a physician. At the hospital recently, a scenario like this occurred in the emergency room. After performing an exam, the doctor felt the patient was stable enough to go home, although the nurse disagreed and felt the patient needed additional monitoring. The nurse followed the doctor’s order and sent the patient home. It was not until later that the nurse spoke up to a supervisor to discuss her uneasiness over the care of the patient.
I was working in the emergency room(ER) as triage nurse, and when I went to the waiting room to call for a 22-year old female, who signed in for cough, something did not look like a 22-year old who signed in because of a cough. Her toddler was sitting beside her, trying to talk to her, but she was not paying much attention to him. Granted, some people choose to not respond to small children at times, because of the million
It allows the patient to feel that the nurse truly cares about their well-being, and I believe that makes a difference in the patient’s recovery. When people have to be in the hospital or nursing home, they tend to feel very vulnerable and may sometimes feel ashamed or embarrassed. Some may not have any family or friends to visit them during their stay; this is the time for the nurse to be reassuring and make them feel comfortable. I believe that making a patient feel as comfortable as possible is one of the most important aspects of nursing care. I think it makes a tremendous difference when nurses act joyful and happy around the patient.
I used to think everyone was happy and lived a wonderful life but there are several problems in health care that most people would never think about. I thought once someone was put in a nursing home that they would be taken care of and the family members would not have to stress about caring for their loved ones. However, this is not always the case because there are always going to be workers who do not enjoy their job and slack off on their tasks. When I arrived at the nursing home some of the workers would be sitting there wasting their time and simply hand you a list of things they needed done. I would begin changing the dirty briefs of the patients and they would have fecal matter left on their bottoms even though they had only urinated.
Patients are just humans after all; therefore, the nurse felt as if she had a fun job with interacting with the patients and making a difference. Therefore, making a difference was another value the interviewee has discovered in her profession. As the nurse began her clinicals in nursing school, she remembered one incident that happened that impacted her; she saw a patient die for the first time on the hospital bed. The nurse said it's more than just making sure the patients take their medications or their vitals are up, it is making an impact on their life and seeing that face of satisfaction at the end once all the work that could have been done is completed. Finally, flexibility played a huge role into the interviewee’s value because of the amount she needs to juggle in her life,
My dad praised me in the same way as he did for my mum. I was felling great as I was trying everything to get that complement from my dad. I didn’t realise when my habit of getting compliment turned into my interest of cooking food. As I grew older I started helping mum in the real kitchen. As we discussed in Bandura’s social learning theory, role modelling and reinforcement played important role in my learning of cooking.
The nurse union will supervise the nurse’s schedule to make sure the health care facility isn’t putting too much on one nurse. Once the nurse union realizes that a nurse is being overworked the nurse union will step in. Most nurses’ love caring for others to the point they completely forget to take care of themselves. Well with the creation of nursing unions that will come to an end. Nurses will have mandatory vacations that they must take.
