According to American Journal Of Critical Care (2014), Patient-centered care starts with “effective communication, being empathetic and available, avoiding personal prejudges, and listening therapeutically are integral parts of patient-centered care” (Riley, White, Graham, Alexandrov, 2014, p. 320).

My preceptor and I both think it is very important to treat patients like they are our own family member or friend, so there are many examples I could give for how I exhibited patient centered care while I completed my senior practicum on 5200/5300.

This patient was getting restless, had been in restraints, was unable to really communicate due to a tracheostomy, and had also been NPO for multiple days while waiting for surgery to insert a PEG tube and fix an elbow fracture. Although this patient was in isolation and many team members were worn down with him constantly trying to get out of bed, I was a fresh face and spent hours upon hours by his side trying to understand why he was acting the way he was.
