Shockley’s oral report, Mr. Wood related the occurrence to Dee Showalter, our client Human Resources Director, who in turn reported the matter to Mary Miller, our client’s Chief of Living and Learning. Ms. Showalter also contacted our client’s nurse, Janice Young, and requested that she perform a skin assessment on Allison and also arrange for a physician to examine her per Ms. Miller’s request. (We have requested a copy of Ms. Young’s skin assessment, though the portion of the file that our client provided does not include a skin assessment that was ordered at that time and our client has indicated that it does not have a record of a skin assessment performed on or shortly after September 9, 2013. However, the materials provided include an assessment that our client completed before Allison’s home visit on September 8. That assessment reveals no abnormal findings, but it is not definitive as to whether the condition of Allison’s buttocks or rectum was accessed as part the
The five following questions are a great way to discuss today’s communication in the health care field; this paper will give a better explanation on what therapeutic communications are, cultural blindness as well as cultural competence, and identifying cultural backgrounds. Working in the health care field we use these very few things every day without even realizing it. It is important that health care professionals have a clear understanding about these concepts to provide the proper care to patients.
The resident was uncivil by calling the patient a “She-Male.” It is possible for the patient to delay seeking testing and treatment due to insensitivity among health care professionals.
Also the nurse was spot on when she enquired to know how the patient would like to be addressed. After the patient indicated clearly that he would like to be addressed by his surname the nurse proceeds to respond “alright darling”. The use of the pet name “darling” against the patient’s wish placed the nurse in a position where she run the risk of making the patient feel infantile and did not respect Mr Jones individuality as prescribed in the Standards of conduct, performance and ethics for nurses and midwives (IBID).
At Care Springs, SSA visited with Kathy. Also present was Judy Baldwin and Kathy’s Aunt Jane. Jane is also a patient of Care Springs and is Kathy’s assigned roommate. We discussed that Kathy is doing well. Kathy shares details of her fall which resulted in her injury; sharing while walking up the ramp to her apartment she made a sudden stop and turned to greet the Maintenance Man for the complex, lost her footing because of the sudden stop and fell. She shares that the pain level of the injury is for the most part tolerable, while Judy shares that Kathy is currently on a routine dosage of pain medication for the injury. Judy explains the pain medication has been prescribed routinely because Kathy wasn’t requesting the medication when it was
And the fact he deemed it unnecessary to speak to the patient is a huge violation of the doctrine of consent and portrayed him to be an insufficient health leader by not following the guidelines put forth in all hospitals to abide by to ensure it’s best to the patients. His incompliant ways can affect the future of the hospital putting in jeopardy many jobs and lives.
Therapeutic communication is considered the heart of family nursing practice (Deane, & Fain, 2016). Knowing the different types of communication is vital for nurses, as it delivers an effective relationship between nurse-client affiliation. Effective therapeutic communication is the main key to success.
Philly should have knocked on the door, before entering into patient`s room. She should have then greeted and introduced herself and the student nurse to Rudd. She should have then started the conversation by addressing him by his name. She should have also enquired about his pain. Philly should have finished her shift assessment and should have assured him that she will come back with the morning medications and then left the room. The behavior was very unprofessional.
Sue spends the greatest amount of time with the nurse and discussing her diabetes and acknowledges that the nurse is the face of the MDT. She has always seen the same nurse so it is easy for her to discuss her diabetes with him and for that reason the nurse and she have a good rapport.
The ‘A’ accounts for the healthcare providers’ attitude towards the patient. In applying this concept, I would seek to ensure that I do not judge the patient for their appearance or circumstance but rather treat the case as it presents itself and to the best of my medical ability (Chochinov, 2007:185).
The patient has a status post right great toe amputation and has sores on his buttocks and left residual limb. The patient 's daughter believes the sores are caused by poor hygiene, nutrition, and poisoning. Sean reports that he bathes and changes his clothes twice a week, and stays in his wheelchair all day, even sleeping in it on occasion. Following series of hospitalizations due to Sean not taking care of himself, he now lives in a nursing home.
Therapeutic Communication has a huge impact on patients, whether, we, as nurses, see it or not. It is very important for a nurse to gain a patient’s trust. Many patients are already filled with sadness, nervousness and unsure thoughts of their current situation. Such thoughts may make a person scared to trust or open up to a nurse or doctor. Developing a close rapport with a patient can help to create a safe, warming environment, resulting in a positive experience throughout their time in the hospital or even nursing home. In “Therapeutic Communication”, Anna Lauria opens saying, “What we say or do not say can influence whether a client is able to quiet his mind, relax his body and initiate a healing response” (Lauria). Being a nurse, we automatically have the opportunity to create a strong influence on patients’ lives during, and even after, their hospital experience.
