Conditions required for a law on active voluntary euthanasia: a survey of nurses' opinions in the Australian Capital Territory. (1/1218)

OBJECTIVES: To ascertain which conditions nurses believe should be in a law allowing active voluntary euthanasia (AVE). DESIGN: Survey questionnaire posted to registered nurses (RNs). SETTING: Australian Capital Territory (ACT) at the end of 1996, when active voluntary euthanasia was legal in the Northern Territory. SURVEY SAMPLE: A random sample of 2,000 RNs, representing 54 per cent of the RN population in the ACT. MAIN MEASURES: Two methods were used to look at nurses' opinions. The first involved four vignettes which varied in terms of critical characteristics of each patient who was requesting help to die. The respondents were asked if the law should be changed to allow any of these requests. There was also a checklist of conditions, most of which have commonly been included in Australian proposed laws on AVE. The respondents chose those which they believed should apply in a law on AVE. RESULTS: The response rate was 61%. Support for a change in the law to allow AVE was 38% for a young man with AIDS, 39% for an elderly man with early stage Alzheimer's disease, 44% for a young woman who had become quadriplegic and 71% for a middle-aged woman with metastases from breast cancer. The conditions most strongly supported in any future AVE law were: "second doctor's opinion", "cooling off period", "unbearable protracted suffering", "patient fully informed about illness and treatment" and "terminally ill". There was only minority support for "not suffering from treatable depression", "administer the fatal dose themselves" and "over a certain age". CONCLUSION: Given the lack of support for some conditions included in proposed AVE laws, there needs to be further debate about the conditions required in any future AVE bills.  (+info)

The relationship between a polymorphism in CYP17 with plasma hormone levels and breast cancer. (2/1218)

The A2 allele of CYP17 has been associated with polycystic ovarian syndrome, elevated levels of certain steroid hormones in premenopausal women, and increased breast cancer risk. We prospectively assessed the association between the A2 allele of CYP17 and breast cancer risk in a case-control study nested within the Nurses' Health Study cohort. We also evaluated associations between this CYP17 genotype and plasma steroid hormone levels among postmenopausal controls not using hormone replacement to assess the biological significance of this genetic variant. Women with the A2 allele were not at an increased risk of incident breast cancer [OR (odds ratio), 0.85; 95% CI (confidence interval), 0.65-1.12] or advanced breast cancer (OR, 0.84; 95% CI, 0.54-1.32). We did observe evidence that the inverse association of late age at menarche with breast cancer may be modified by the CYP17 A2 allele. The protective effect of later age at menarche was only observed among women without the A2 allele (A1/A1 genotype: for age at menarche > or =13 versus <13; OR, 0.57; 95% CI, 0.36-0.90; A1/A2 and A2/A2 genotypes: OR, 1.05; 95% CI, 0.76-1.45; P for interaction = 0.07). Among controls, we found women with the A2/A2 genotype to have elevated levels of estrone (+14.3%, P = 0.01), estradiol (+13.8%, P = 0.08), testosterone (+8.6%, P = 0.34), androstenedione (+17.1%, P = 0.06), dehydroepiandrosterone (+14.4%, P = 0.02), and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (+7.2%, P = 0.26) compared with women with the A1/A1 genotype. These data suggest that the A2 allele of CYP17 modifies endogenous hormone levels, but is not a strong independent risk factor for breast cancer.  (+info)

Lead and hypertension in a sample of middle-aged women. (3/1218)

OBJECTIVES: The role of lead exposure as a risk factor for hypertension is less well defined among women than among men. This case-control study assessed the relation of blood and bone lead concentrations to hypertension in women. METHODS: Cases and controls were a subsample of women from the Nurses' Health Study. Hypertension was defined as a physician diagnosis of hypertension between 1988 and 1994 or measured systolic blood pressure > or = 140 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure > or = 90 mm Hg. RESULTS: Mean (SD) blood lead concentration was 0.15 (0.11) mumol/L; mean tibia and patella lead concentrations by K-x-ray fluorescence were 13.3 (9.0) and 17.3 (11.1) micrograms/g, respectively. After adjustment for potentially confounding factors, an increase from the 10th to the 90th percentile of patella lead values (25 micrograms/g) was associated with approximately 2-fold (95% confidence interval = 1.1, 3.2) increased risk of hypertension. There was no association between hypertension and either blood or tibia lead concentrations. CONCLUSIONS: These findings support a potentially important role for low-level lead exposure as a risk factor for hypertension among non-occupationally exposed women.  (+info)

Noncommunicable disease management in resource-poor settings: a primary care model from rural South Africa. (5/1218)

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as hypertension, asthma, diabetes and epilepsy are placing an increasing burden on clinical services in developing countries and innovative strategies are therefore needed to optimize existing services. This article describes the design and implementation of a nurse-led NCD service based on clinical protocols in a resource-poor area of South Africa. Diagnostic and treatment protocols were designed and introduced at all primary care clinics in the district, using only essential drugs and appropriate technology; the convenience of management for the patient was highlighted. The protocols enabled the nurses to control the clinical condition of 68% of patients with hypertension, 82% of those with non-insulin-dependent diabetes, and 84% of those with asthma. The management of NCDs of 79% of patients who came from areas served by village or mobile clinics was transferred from the district hospital to such clinics. Patient-reported adherence to treatment increased from 79% to 87% (P = 0.03) over the 2 years that the service was operating. The use of simple protocols and treatment strategies that were responsive to the local situation enabled the majority of patients to receive convenient and appropriate management of their NCD at their local primary care facility.  (+info)

Dietary intake of alpha-linolenic acid and risk of fatal ischemic heart disease among women. (6/1218)

BACKGROUND: Experimental studies in laboratory animals and humans suggest that alpha-linolenic acid (18:3n-3) may reduce the risk of arrhythmia. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to examine the association between dietary intake of alpha-linolenic acid and risk of fatal ischemic heart disease (IHD). DESIGN: This was a prospective cohort study. The intake of alpha-linolenic acid was derived from a 116-item food-frequency questionnaire completed in 1984 by 76283 women without previously diagnosed cancer or cardiovascular disease. RESULTS: During 10 y of follow-up, we documented 232 cases of fatal IHD and 597 cases of nonfatal myocardial infarction. After adjustment for age, standard coronary risk factors, and dietary intake of linoleic acid and other nutrients, a higher intake of alpha-linolenic acid was associated with a lower relative risk (RR) of fatal IHD; the RRs from the lowest to highest quintiles were 1.0, 0.99, 0.90, 0.67, and 0.55 (95% CI: 0.32, 0.94; P for trend = 0.01). For nonfatal myocardial infarction there was only a modest, nonsignificant trend toward a reduced risk when extreme quintiles were compared (RR: 0.85; 95% CI: 0.61, 1.19; P for trend = 0.50). A higher intake of oil and vinegar salad dressing, an important source of alpha-linolenic acid, was associated with reduced risk of fatal IHD when women who consumed this food > or =5-6 times/wk were compared with those who rarely consumed this food (RR: 0.46; 95% CI: 0.27, 0.76; P for trend = 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: This study supports the hypothesis that a higher intake of alpha-linolenic acid is protective against fatal IHD. Higher consumption of foods such as oil-based salad dressing that provide polyunsaturated fats, including alpha-linolenic acid, may reduce the risk of fatal IHD.  (+info)

Contrasting views of physicians and nurses about an inpatient computer-based provider order-entry system. (7/1218)

OBJECTIVE: Many hospitals are investing in computer-based provider order-entry (POE) systems, and providers' evaluations have proved important for the success of the systems. The authors assessed how physicians and nurses viewed the effects of one modified commercial POE system on time spent patients, resource utilization, errors with orders, and overall quality of care. DESIGN: Survey. MEASUREMENTS: Opinions of 271 POE users on medicine wards of an urban teaching hospital: 96 medical house officers, 49 attending physicians, 19 clinical fellows with heavy inpatient loads, and 107 nurses. RESULTS: Responses were received from 85 percent of the sample. Most physicians and nurses agreed that orders were executed faster under POE. About 30 percent of house officers and attendings or fellows, compared with 56 percent of nurses, reported improvement in overall quality of care with POE. Forty-four percent of house officers and 34 percent of attendings/fellows reported that their time with patients decreased, whereas 56 percent of nurses indicated that their time with patients increased (P < 0.001). Sixty percent of house officers and 41 percent of attendings/fellows indicated that order errors increased, whereas 69 percent of nurses indicated a decrease or no change in errors. Although most nurses reported no change in the frequency of ordering tests and medications with POE, 61 percent of house officers reported an increased frequency. CONCLUSION: Physicians and nurses had markedly different views about effects of a POE system on patient care, highlighting the need to consider both perspectives when assessing the impact of POE. With this POE system, most nurses saw beneficial effects, whereas many physicians saw negative effects.  (+info)

Improving pneumococcal vaccine rates. Nurse protocols versus clinical reminders. (8/1218)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effectiveness of three interventions designed to improve the pneumococcal vaccination rate. DESIGN: A prospective controlled trial. SETTING: Department of Veterans Affairs ambulatory care clinic. PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS: There were 3, 502 outpatients with scheduled visits divided into three clinic teams (A, B, or C). INTERVENTIONS: During a 12-week period, each clinic team received one intervention: (A) nurse standing orders with comparative feedback as well as patient and clinician reminders; (B) nurse standing orders with compliance reminders as well as patient and clinician reminders; and (C) patient and clinician reminders alone. Team A nurses (comparative feedback group) received information on their vaccine rates relative to those of team B nurses. Team B nurses (compliance reminders group) received reminders to vaccinate but no information on vaccine rates. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Team A nurses assessed more patients than team B nurses (39% vs 34%, p =.009). However, vaccination rates per total patient population were similar (22% vs 25%, p =.09). The vaccination rates for both team A and team B were significantly higher than the 5% vaccination rate for team C (p <.001). CONCLUSIONS: Nurse-initiated vaccine protocols raised vaccination rates substantially more than a physician and patient reminder system. The nurse-initiated protocol with comparative feedback modestly improved the assessment rate compared with the protocol with compliance reminders, but overall vaccination rates were similar.  (+info)

This comparative focus group study explored nurses experiences and perceptions regarding parental participation in infant pain management in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). A total of 87 nurses from 7 NICUs in Finland, Sweden, and the United States participated in focus-group interviews (n = 25). Data were analyzed using deductive and inductive thematic analysis. Nurses experiences and perceptions varied considerably, from nurses being in control, to nurses sharing some control with parents, to nurse-parent collaboration in infant pain management. When nurses controlled pain management, parents were absent or passive. In these cases, the nurses believed this led to better pain control for infants and protected parents from emotional distress caused by infant pain. When nurses shared control with parents, they provided information and opportunities for participation. They believed parent participation was beneficial, even if it caused nurses or parents anxiety. When nurses collaborated ...
What is the aim of this review?. The aim of this Cochrane Review was to find out if changes made to nurse staffing in hospitals improve outcomes for patients or nurses, or have an impact on the cost of health care. Nurse staffing can refer to the number of nurses per patient, the mix of different types of nurses in a hospital unit, or models used to allocate nurses to patients in a hospital unit.. Key messages. The research relating to hospital nurse staffing is very limited and the findings should be treated with caution.. It is unlikely that adding nurses with advanced nursing skills (Nurse Practitioners (NPs)) or with expertise in a particular area of practice (Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNSs)) to hospital nurse staffing makes any difference to patient death rates. We cannot be sure what other effect it might have on patients, for example, if it reduces the time patients spend in hospital or the costs of patient care. We cannot be sure if changes to the way in which nurses are allocated to ...

Introduction. Short-term deployment of nurses is a temporary placement of nurses in a ward or other unit for a period of 12 hours or less. Short-term deployment of nurses is usually used within the hospital units in order to balance the numbers or to cover the shortage of staff in the different units. Often, nurses working in the intensive care unit (ICU) are required to help in other units if there is not enough staff, or their own unit is not busy. An ICU nurse is a professional and/or registered nurse who is trained, or is experienced in caring for the critically-ill patients in the ICUs. In this study, nurses work in the ICUs where short-term deployment is practiced. Short-term deployment of nurses from ICU may be to general wards that are not exactly the same as ICU as regards general layout, speciality area, patient care and general ward routine. The aim of deployment is to cover the shortage of nurses in the particular unit for a duty shift.. The nursing profession is experiencing a ...

Background. Cardiac surgical patients are distinguished by their potential for instability in the early postoperative period, highly invasive haemodynamic monitoring technologies and unique clinical presentations as a result of undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass. Little is known about nurses perceptions of assuming responsibility for such patients. An understanding of nurses perceptions may identify areas of practice that can be improved and assist in determining the adequacy of current decision supports.. Aim. The aim of this study was to describe critical care nurses perceptions of assuming responsibility for the nursing management of cardiac patients in the initial two-hour postoperative period.. Design. An exploratory descriptive study based on naturalistic decision-making.. Methods. Thirty-eight nurses were interviewed immediately following a two-hour observation of their clinical practice. Content analysis and a systematic thematic analysis process called Framework were used to analyse ...
iStock , christingasner. In the merry month of May, theres a very special week set aside to celebrate the amazing work that nurses do. Hospitals throw extravagant parties with four-course meals and a fat bonus check for every nurse on staff. Local government officials host a ticker tape parade where nurses march arm in arm through the city center between rows of cheering fans. Everyone who has ever been a patient sends a thank you card or a flower arrangement to a nurse who has made a difference in their life. Doctors band together to take complete responsibility for patient care for 24 hours so nurses can have a well-deserved day off.. Okay, back to reality. We asked our readers to describe what Nurses Week is really like at their job. The most common response was Does any hospital celebrate Nurses Week? Sadly, many employers and managers dont even acknowledge this event at all-much less go out of their way to make nursing staff feel appreciated. Nurse Ronna sums it up this way: I get ...

My world, in geriatric care management, primarily consists of interacting with many health care technicians, non-degree workers, and varied professionals. So, saying this another way, most of my contacts are not nurses. I can tell you, more than weekly, I must explain to those in the field of social and care-giving support, how beneficial it is to have a nurse on the team or committee for decision making. I still get surprised that family is often unaware that a trained and registered nurse is not a part of the team when very serious medical choices are being reviewed for their loved one. A nurse on the health care team is a natural advocate for the patient.. It is true, and is what I was taught, that the nurse is the last line of deffense (often) for a patient in a facility (or elsewhere). Nurses, know when to contact physicians when there is a concern, check physician orders after they are written, call for questions, order the medication (if needed) from the pharmacy, and verify that it has ...
Cruise notes that many vulnerable people lack the resources that allow them to manage their health effectively, and nurses should be prepared to meet these patients right where they are, without judgment.. They may have low literacy, live in poverty, live in environments that are polluted, run down, or crime-ridden; and work in jobs with low pay and dangerous conditions, says Cruise. People in these situations will pick up on a disapproving attitude by the nurse and shut down, shut the nurse out, and be less likely to follow his or her health care directions. Nurses should adopt a caring approach. While not condoning negative or criminal behaviors, accepting clients as they are and demonstrating concern for their health and well-being are more likely to motivate them to listen to the nurses advice and make positive changes.. Jan Jones-Schenk, national director of Western Governors Universitys (WGU) College of Health Professions and chief nursing officer for WGU, encourages nurses working ...
Labor and delivery nurses have the same general skill set as all registered nurses, but also need some additional specific skills for the obstetric specialty.. Medical Skills and Knowledge: Nurses need to have detailed medical knowledge from an accredited educational program. Labor and delivery nurses also need to have additional knowledge of obstetrics, gynecology, and childbirth in general.. Bedside Manner: Labor and delivery nurses work with patients in very vulnerable and high-stress situations, so a good bedside manner (including empathy and patience) is essential.. Problem Solving Skills: Because of the high stakes of working with laboring and delivering patients, these nurses need to be prepared for everything that can possibly go wrong-and be able to troubleshoot or have a plan in place for things that cant be anticipated. Labor and delivery nurses are responsible for monitoring patients through every stage of childbirth, helping to ensure safety at every stage.. Communication Skills: ...
The study is a part of The International Closeness Survey in the SCENE group who studies how the cultures of neonatal units (NICU) promote or hinder parent-infant physical and emotional closeness. In this study, parents perception of received staff support and nurses perception of given nurse support were compared between a Family Centred Care (FCC) unit and a traditional open-bay NICU in Norway. Thirty families with infants born before 35 weeks of gestational age were included in both units. Every nurse working at infant bedside (n = 62 + 67) participated in to the study for 3-month period. Parents responded to one out nine potential randomised questions about staff support sent as an SMS message to their mobile phone every evening. Nurses responded to corresponding questions via a web page on how they perceived the support they provided. The nurses evaluation on given parent support did not differ between the units. In the FCC unit, the nurses reported highest satisfaction with their own ...
From a patients point of view, and one that has experienced several poorly trained nurses(YES NURSES) I have been yelled at ridiculed and even had treatments with held from me, because I refused to take insults and even foul comments. I blame the training faculty for teaching new nurses that they are incharge and not the patient. That is ok for them to threaten a patient, even unto physical abuse if necessary to make them do what they want to do to the patient. So in my own opinion it is the older nurses with university degrees that teach these new nurses their behavior. Compassion and caring are out the window. I have seen few nurses just paycheck collectors on duty. Unless the good nurses are willing to train the new ones in the proper care of patients it will only get worse. Aides and assistants are only as good as they are trained. Yes the hospitals are mostly to blame for the poor training because they just want someone to do the running as cheap as they can get. They rush the training to ...
Nurses are suitable candidates for various volunteer roles within organizations - those requiring their professional license and those roles that do not. However, it is important that the volunteer role be clearly defined. Whether the role requires the nurse to perform functions defined under a nursing license will have implications for liability purposes.. If you plan to place a nurse in a role that does not require a nursing license, then the nurse will not need any liability coverage outside that of any normal volunteer. However, if you enlist a nurse to perform a nursing function which falls under the scope of practice of a nursing license, there are additional conditions to consider. Nurses must only perform functions that are designated under their Nursing Practice Act and must abide by the statues regulating the practice of professional nursing by the board in their state. They must be aware of the liability coverage provided to them in any specific situation by the organization for which ...

Each nurse has that potential within him/her to become a good nurse leader. You dont really have to occupy the highest position for you to be called a nurse leader. You can be a leader in your own way. As a nurse, you manage other members of the healthcare team, you cause others to act, and you facilitate positive outcomes. But how does one become more effective? What makes a good nurse leader?. Has high regard for others. A good leader sees the best in the people around them. Instead of looking down on colleagues and other members of the team, he/she has a way of making others feel good about themselves. Always treat your colleagues with respect.. Has adequate knowledge and skills. For one to be a good nurse leader, he/she must first possess necessary knowledge and skills and feels confident in that knowledge. Leaders have a sense of what is right and keep that at the heart of everything they do.. An inspiration to others and encourages them to do their best. As a nurse leader, it is important ...
Nurse to nurse bullying threatens the safety and well-being of patients and nurses. The misconduct is a major problem for all nurses and causing 60% of new nurses to leave their first nursing position and 1 in 3 nurses to quit the profession.
Forty years of the Nurses Health Study: An evidence goldmine with a long-lasting legacy . It started in 1976 as an investigation into the potential health consequences of oral contraceptives, but the long-running Nurses Health Study has yielded increasingly greater benefits to scientific knowledge of health and disease, according to a paper published today in the journal Public Health Research & Practice.
The general aim was, within psychiatric inpatient care, to explore patient and staff perceptions with regard to medication administration and locked entrance doors. In Study I, medication administration was illuminated according to a mini-ethnographic approach. Nurses and voluntarily admitted patients were observed and interviewed. Two central categories of patient and nurse experiences were identified, get control and leave control. In Study II, patients and nurses were interviewed about patient experiences of forced medication. Identified experiences were related to the disease, being forcibly medicated, and the drug. In Study III, the frequency of and reasons for locked entrance doors on Swedish psychiatric inpatient wards were investigated. Seventy three per cent of the doors were locked on a specific day. According to ward managers, doors were most often locked in order to prevent patients from escaping, provide security and safety, and because legalisation. In Study IV/V, voluntarily ...
The literature and practice show that many professional nurses feel emotionally overloaded and are experiencing job dissatisfaction, which often results in them leaving the profession. Paradoxically, some nurses choose to remain in nursing and survive, cope and even thrive despite their unique workplace adversities. It is, however, not known what the prevalence of resilience amongst nurses is, and what influence working in private versus public contexts has on this resilience. The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of resilience in a group of professional nurses, to determine whether private versus public contexts played a role in nurses' resilience, and to obtain an indication of participants' views of their profession and resilience therein. A cross-sectional survey design was used where professional nurses (N = 312) working in public and private hospitals in South Africa voluntarily completed measures of psycho-social well-being as indicators of their degree of resilience.

niversity of Utah Health is the only place Ive worked as a nurse. I have 11 years of experience in intensive care units. For four years, I split my time between SICU and NCC. Six years ago, I became NCCs nurse educator; four years ago, I became nurse manager.. The team on NCC-nurses, health care assistants, nurse practitioners, social workers, therapists, pharmacists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, neurointensivists, and fellows-is responsible for caring for critically ill or injured patients. They usually come straight from the emergency department or bypass ED altogether if theyre flown in with head trauma.. In March 2014, NCC nearly doubled, from 15 to 23 beds, becoming the largest and most technologically advanced neuro critical care unit in the Mountain West. I had to hire 20 new nurses, and most didnt have the necessary skills for such a high-acuity setting.. This problem isnt unique to NCC; each unit has specific patient needs that require nurses to build their practice. U of U Health ...
Aim: The overall aim of the present thesis was to describe and examine primary care nurses´ self-reports on training, use and performance as well as experiences and actual performance of MI.. Method: One qualitative and three quantitative studies were conducted among primary care nurses. A study-specific questionnaire was sent to 980 primary care nurses and 673 (69%) responded (Study I). Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 20 MI trained primary care nurses (Study II). MI sessions between 12 (Study III) respective 23 (Study IV) primary care nurses and patients (total 32 respective 50 sessions) were audio-recorded. Data were analyzed using qualitative content analysis, Motivational Interviewing Integrity Code, Motivational Interviewing Sequential Code for Observing Process Exchanges and statistical analysis.. Results: The findings showed that primary care nurses reported and experienced lack of training in MI and lack of prerequisites for using MI (Study I-II), while training, ...
In International Journal of Nursing Studies, Jane Ball and colleagues, including Linda Aiken, examine if missed nursing care explains the observed association between nurse staffing levels and mortality. Previous research has shown that higher postoperative mortality rates are associated with lower nurse staffing levels. When nurse staffing levels are lower, there is a higher incidence of necessary but missed nursing care. The authors collected data from 422,730 patients from 300 general acute hospitals, and administered surveys to 26,516 registered nurses to understand staffing and missed care measures.. They find that every one patient added to a nurses workload is associated with a seven percent increase in the odds of 30-day mortality, and a 10 percent increase in missed nursing care is associated with a 16 percent increase in the odds of 30-day mortality. Statistical analyses show an increase between nurse staffing and missed care, and a subsequent association between missed care and ...
The Working Hours of Hospital Staff Nurses and Patient Safety, published in Health Affairs, demonstrated that nurses working mandatory overtime are three times more likely to make a medical error.. Background on Bargaining. BFMC nurses have been bargaining with Baystate since November 2016. Nurses have voted 93 percent to authorize a one-day strike and filed seven unfair labor practice charges against Baystate Franklin with the National Labor Relations Board. The strike authorization vote gives the MNA BFMC Bargaining Committee the authority to call a one-day strike. Bargaining is over a new contract to replace the agreement that was scheduled to expire Dec. 31, 2016. A federal mediator joined the bargaining process in February. For more details, including the letters to the president, NLRB charges and hospital schedules, mandatory overtime reports and text messages showing a pattern of BFMC not having enough nurses for its patients, please contact Joe Markman at 781-571-8175 or ...
Methods: The sample was 123 nurses working in the pediatric units at 3 tertiary care hospitals in the central part of Thailand, having experiences in caring for pediatric patients at least 1 year, and not being in a position of head nurse or higher. Data were collected through questionnaires including personal information, nurses perception of competency in communication with pediatric patients at the end of life and their families, attitudes towards death and caring of dying patients, and nurses perceptions of barriers to communication. Descriptive statistics and Spearmans rank correlation coefficient were used in the data analysis. ...
I am a university educated registered nurse. We had a hell of a lot of hands on practice as well as our academic courses. The only people who say that you dont need a brain or an education to be an RN are the people who do not have any direct experience of nursing in acute care on todays wards. I have yet to meet a nurse who thinks that she is above providing basic care. I work with nurses who are completely unable to provide basic care due to ward conditions. I have lived and worked in 3 countries and have seen more similarities than differences. I have been a qualified nurse for nearly 15 years. I never used to use foul language until working on the wards got to me. Its a mess everywhere, not just the NHS. Hospital management is slashing the numbers of staff on the ward whilst filling us up with more patients than we can handle... patients who are increasingly frail. After an 8-14 hour shift without stopping once we have still barely scratched the surface of being able to do what we need to ...
The sample studied had 3,229 nurses, which corresponds to 82.7% of the total eligible (n = 3,904). The losses are due to refusals (n = 478) and nurses that were not located in the hospitals over two months (n = 128). Of the sample studied, 2,818 (87.3%) were female.. The female group had an average age of 39.7 years (SD = 9.9 years). Approximately 55.7% self-reported as white; 55.9% were married or had a common-law marriage; and, 75.9% had a graduate degree. As for income, 40% of the female nurses were classified in the group corresponding to the per capita income of more than R$2,300.00. The average time spent with household chores was 21 hours per week, while average working hours was 55.1 hours per week (SD = 20.9 hours). Almost 50% of the nurses worked in night shifts and approximately 2/3 worked in two or more locations. As for the aspects related to health, 7.1% reported having poor or very poor health. Approximately half of the participants were overweight and 23.7% were smokers or former ...

Introduction. Introduction The NHS is a massive organisation employing over 1.5 million employees. The NHS employs over 400, 000 nurses and without the NHS (National Health Service) would be nothing but fiction. Nurses play a big role inside the NHS. From all of the people providing a service in the NHS a nurse is the core of it all. A nurse will perform a range of tasks. Nurses will also work in different places and wards in a hospital. This is what I will discuss in my work related report moreover I will discuss the role of a nurse and many other topics regarding towards a nurse. What personal skills and qualities must a nurse have? Being a nurse is a big responsibility. You are only allowed to perform the job if you are 17 or over. There is a lot that is expected from a nurse. Stated below is what qualities and skills a nurse must have to go ahead with a nursing career. Nurses Specialise in: * Adult nursing * Childrens Nursing * Mental health nursing * Learning disability nursing Required ...
In the current study we report the results of a program of nurse algorithm-guided care for adult patients with acute minor illnesses in primary care in a very large cohort of patients (1,209,669 consultations) over a two-year period. The program was designed to fulfill two criteria: treatment algorithms and close collaboration between nurses and GPs. The program was also intended to solve some of the concerns raised about the effectiveness and appropriateness of extending the role of nurses to same day consultations for acute minor illnesses in primary care, thus substituting GPs in this function. One of these concerns is that nurses may work independently of GPs which may result in lack of consultation in the case of uncertainty [13]. To avoid this potential effect, the program reported herein was the result of a collective effort between GPs and nurses. Moreover, in all management algorithms a number of signs of alarm were included, so that patients had to be sent to the GP for an urgent ...

The first stage is sharing values, a time when nurse and organisation share similar values. The second stage is conceding values where, due to changes in the organisations values, nurses perceive that patient care becomes compromised and values diverge between the nurse and the hospital. The final stage, in which the nurse eventually resigns, is where nurses give up and feel that they compromise their professional integrity, that their values are conflicted, and that they are unable to realign their values to those of hospitals ...
I became a nurse at the age of 21 in 1995. I then completed my BSN in Nursing in 2004, the year my little boy Paxten was born. Oct. 20th 2006 he was dx with ALL, then 2 weeks later after chromosomal tests returned, hypodiploid ALL. This is a very rare type and is treated with a bone marrow transplant most of the time. Since Paxten did not have a matched sibling he went on the Very High RisK ALL Protocol. I had to quit working at the very hospital where we spent the majority of our time for the next year and a half. We were admitted in my hospital over 35 times. It was pretty hard going from the nurse to mom and not still trying to be the nurse at the same time. The nurses and doctors were all very understanding and included me in every part of his therapy. They often printed the orders and MARS off for me. This January he relapsed while just starting the maintenance phase of the protocol. AFter living 2 months in the hospital trying to get him back into remission, nothing worked. We had to take ...
Im finishing my time in the UK today and head back home tomorrow. The British Society for Rheumatology 2017 conference was interesting, on the news the key headlines were pay for National Health Service employees, nurses in particular.. Due to budget shortfalls, the NHS froze nurse pay between 2010 and 2012. Beginning in 2012, pay raises resumed but were capped at 1% per year. Because of these austerity measures, the Royal College of Nursing claims that real wages-i.e., the differences between nominal wage increases and increases to the cost of living-for nurses have actually fallen by 14%.. Economists would predict that when prices or wages fall below market rate, there will be shortages. Sure enough, that is the case in the UK. There is an estimated 50,000 person labor shortfall for NHS, equivalent to 6% of the current NHS workforce.. The Labor party is trying to address this situation. They are campaigning on lifting the the 1% cap on nurse wages and instituting mandatory staffing minimums. ...
Discusses the interpretation of nursing statistics, the problem of counting how many nurses there are in the workforce, and the need to be aware of how statistics are compiled when presenting numerical data to support arguments relating to nursing and the nursing workforce. Argues that NHS workforce statistics provide considerable evidence for claiming that there is a significant decline in the number of nursing staff doing the work of nursing in the NHS. Explains that although there was an increase in the number of qualified nurses working in the NHS throughout the 1980s (over a ten-year period the number of qualified nurses increased by 22 per cent), the increase in qualified nursing staff has not compensated for the loss of student learners in the workforce. Emphasizes that during the last three years for which figures are available, however, these gains have been wiped out, and the number of qualified nurses has declined to pre-Project 2000 levels.. ...

Factors influencing nurses attitudes towards healthcare information technology. Aim(s) This literature review examines the current trend in nurses attitudes toward healthcare information technology (HIT).. Background HIT implementation and expansion are at the core of global efforts to improve healthcare quality and patient safety. As a large portion of the healthcare workforce, nurses attitudes towards HIT are likely to have a major impact on the electronic health record (EHR) implementation process.. Evaluation A search of PubMed, CINAHL and Medline databases produced 1930 combined hits. Returned articles were scanned for relevancy and applicability. Thirteen articles met all criteria and were subsequently reviewed in their entirety.. Key Issue(s) In accordance with two change theories, if HIT implementation projects are to be successful, nurses must recognize that incorporating EHRs into their daily practice is beneficial to patient outcomes.. Conclusion(s) Overall, the attitudes of nurses ...
This as a whole represents a burden for Ministry of Health. The sources went on to explain that nurses are generally divided into three classes - A, B and C. Nurses of class A are employed in sensitive departments which require them to have special training and good experience.. They receive a salary of KD 750 per month. Class B is a medium level and nurses of this class usually work in the internal wards. Class C is the lowest level and nurses of this class usually work in the outpatient departments. Nurses of this class do not require high experience and offer simple services. The salary of class B nurses is KD 50 lesser than the salary of class A nurses.. The salary of class C nurses is KD 50 lesser than the salary of class B nurses. However, class A nurses receive a total of about KD 70 as infection allowance, danger allowance and night shift allowance. This means the nurses working in the outpatient department earn KD 235 lesser than the class A nurses in a month. The sources wondered how ...
Background: Although crucial, research on nurses knowledge on the use of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) is scant. The aims of the study were to investigate (i) the level of nurses knowledge on care of patients with ICDs, (ii) whether knowledge level is related to education and type of hospital where nurses practice and (iii) whether knowledge level changes among nurses over time.. Methods: We developed a questionnaire comprising 27 items in four parts: (1) Sociodemographics, (2) Technical facts about ICDs, (3) Daily life challenges and (4) Self-evaluation of knowledge. After validation, surveys were conducted during 1-week cardiac educational courses in 2003-2010. In total, 463 nurses working in cardiology-related areas participated, yielding a response rate of 91%.. Results: Practical and technical knowledge about ICDs was lacking. Nurses were unaware or did not know that mobile phones can affect the device (80%), that patients are restricted from driving heavy vehicles (69%), ...
Pain is a common phenomenon among emergency patients which may lead to chronic pain conditions and alteration of physiological function. However, it is widely reported that proper pain assessment and management, which is often accomplished by adequately trained nurses reduce the suffering of patients. Therefore, the aim of this study was to assess the emergency nurses´ knowledge, attitude and perceived barriers regarding pain management. A cross-sectional quantitative study design was applied to determine the nurses´ knowledge level, attitude and the perceived barriers related to pain management. Hundred twenty-six nurses from the emergency departments of seven referral hospitals of Eritrea participated in the study. Data were collected in August and September 2017. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used to summarize and elaborate on the results. In general, the knowledge level and attitude of the emergency nurses was poor. The participants correct mean score was 49.5%. Nurses with

AIMS: To explore nurses views of patient participation in nursing care on medical wards. BACKGROUND: Nurses have frequent contact with patients, highlighting their potential role in enabling patient participation. However, some nurses actions and attitudes act as barriers, failing to achieve core requirements of patient participation. Discovering nurses views may assist in developing strategies to encourage patient participation in hospitals. DESIGN: Interpretive study. METHODS: Twenty nurses were recruited from four medical wards, located in two Australian hospitals. In-depth semi-structured interviews were conducted between November 2013-March 2014 and analysed using content analysis. FINDINGS: Five categories emerged from the nurses views. The first category, acknowledging patients as partners, showed nurses respected patients as legitimate participants. In the second category, managing risk, nurses emphasized the need to monitor participation to ensure rules and patient safety were ...

We expect nurses at SDH to consider nursing as a profession, not just as a job. SNAP fellows are developed early on as future leaders within our facilities. They report higher levels of engagement and confidence, as well as satisfaction and empowerment after participating in the SNAP fellowship. The nurses state they are more autonomous, feel more confident dealing with physicians, and believe they can make important contributions and changes-even as a new nurse. That view carries over to participation in committees. A survey found that 61% of SNAP nurses participate on committees, compared to 30% of non-SNAP nurses. Anecdotally, after SNAP clinical rotations were implemented, unit leaders noted improved relations between nursing and other departments. By incorporating professionalism and leadership aspects into the SDH SNAP Fellowship, the nurses develop in a collaborative and supportive environment using a network of health professionals to grow intellectually and professionally as new nurses. ...

Dystonia nurses are general nurses who have a detailed knowledge and understanding of dystonia and its management. They provide vital continuity of care as they often see the same patient at each visit and their clinic slots are frequently longer than those of a neurologist. Whitaker et al (2001) states that nurse practitioners provide a more flexible, much appreciated, safe and cost-effective service for this client group. Wider use of outreach nurse practitioners should therefore be encouraged.. Some dystonia nurses are trained to give botulinum toxin injections either in the clinic or as an outreach service. Through continuity, they can learn the specifics of each patients treatment, including how best to site the injections for maximal effect with lowest dose. Dystonia nurses are sometimes also able to adjust the dose of botulinum toxin within agreed parameters, if necessary seeking advice from the consultant through agreed protocols (Whitaker et al (2001)). Other dystonia nurses provide ...

Nurses deal with stress both in and out of the workplace - in addition to the everyday physical, social, emotional, nutritional, and financial, stresses that life can bring. Healthcare organizations are becoming more focused on enhancing wellness for nurses. These efforts can result in cultural transformations that not only improve employees experience, but also, clinical outcomes and patient experience. During this webinar you will learn how one organization gathered input from frontline nurses and experts to design innovative programs and structures to meet the complex self-care needs of individuals and nursing teams. You
This week I spent 3 days on the female ward, 1 day in bed hoping I wasnt getting sick, and 2 days doing Village Health Worker Training. I am beginning to find a rhythm on the female ward. I could have never imagined that I would be able to know the status of 24 patients in 1 shift. That is not without the help of the other nurse on the ward. It is working out well that I am acting as the lead nurse, assessing the Patients, documenting, and when possible making sure all of the doctors orders are getting done. The other nurse distributes medications, places IV cannulas, and wanders off from time to time. All of the nurses have been great. There was one exception when one day the nurse assigned to the ward showed up for only about 20 minutes during the morning, and when it came time to give medications, she told me she was leaving. This was after I told her I did not feel comfortable passing the medications alone. I tried not to panic or be too upset at how seemingly uncaring this nurse was. ...
A laboratory test was made on the nurse on August 25 in the same hospital. The nurse was discharged on August 26. On August 27, initial laboratory results showed she was negative of the virus. The nurse then traveled to the Philippines on August 28 on board Saudi Airlines flight which arrived on August 29. She went briefly to Bulacan to visit some relatives and on August 31, arrived in Banga, South Cotabato transiting through General Santos City airport via Cebu Pacific Airlines flight 997.. However, Audan said her friend in Dammam made an overseas call on September 1 to inform that her laboratory test showed she was positive of MERS CoV. The health authorities from Saudi also contacted the Department of Health (DOH) in Manila to relay that one of the Filipino nurses who traveled to the Philippines tested positive of the virus. It was at this instance that DOH traced the nurse and was located by DOH employees in South Cotabato.. Audan said the nurse and her husband were advised to get medical ...

Nurse staffing issues appear to be merely the tip of the iceberg. Below the surface three underlying main themes became clear; nursing behaviour, authority, and autonomy, cross-cut by a single overall theme; nurses position. In general, nurses behaviour, way of thinking, decision-making, and communicating thoughts or information differs from other disciplines like physicians and quality advisors. This results in a perceived and actual lack of authority and autonomy. This in turn hinders them to plead for adequate nurse staffing in order to achieve the common goal of safe and high-quality patient care. Nurses desired a validated nursing care intensity score as interdisciplinary and objective communication tool that makes nursing care visible and creates possibilities for a better positioning of nurses in hospitals and a further professionalization in terms of enhanced authority and autonomy. ...
But the episodes masterpiece of physician contempt is an interaction involving Meredith, fellow intern Alex Karev, an unseen post-op patient, and an older, far less attractive nurse. Alex has diagnosed this patients fever and shortness of breath as pneumonia, and he tells the nurse to start antibiotics. The nurse bleats: Are you sure thats the right diagnosis? Alex brings out the big guns: Well, I dont know, Im only an intern. Heres an idea, why dont you go spend four years in med. school and let me know if its the right diagnosis. Shes short of breath, shes got a fever, shes post-op. Start the antibiotics. Alex approaches Meredith, who has overheard all this, and says: God, I hate nurses. Meredith observes that the patient may not have pneumonia, noting that she could be splinting or have a PE. Alex replies: Like I said, I hate nurses. Meredith is incensed: What did you just say? Did you just call me a nurse? Alex: Well, if the white cap fits. Meredith stalks off. ...

Substance abuse is costly to the individual nurse, their friends and families, and healthcare organizations in terms of loss of income, health, and relationships, and diminished quality of care provided to patients. While it may be difficult or uncomfortable, individual nurses can make a positive difference when they identify substance-abusing nurses so that they can get the help they need.. Substance-abusing nurses most likely will not seek treatment until confronted by peers, family, or nursing management, or their employment is in jeopardy. However, those who enter and complete structured treatment programs can be successful and reenter the profession of nursing.. Cynthia M.

In Texas, hospitals cannot force their registered nurses or vocational nurses to work extra hours or extra shifts except in natural disasters or other un-expected circumstances. [...] the statute states that a hospital may not use on-call time as a substitute for mandatory overtime. [...] it spells out a few limited exceptions in which overtime can be mandatory, including government declarations of emergency or unforeseen events that cannot be prudently anticipated. The Texas Department of State Health Services has jurisdiction over mandatory overtime rules for nurses. Some hospitals in Texas still schedule their nursing staff using on-call mandatory overtime methods, said Paula Littles, lead organizer for the committee in Austin, part of the National Nurses United union. Nurses typically work 12-hour shifts, she said, and when theyre exhausted after putting in those hours and more, theyre at increased risk for accidental needle sticks and musculoskeletal injuries along with mistakes in patient
How many times have you seen this happen at work? Experts call it lateral violence in the workplace. Nurses call it eating our young. Ive seen it a lot. In fact, I was a victim of this phenomenon. One group of nurses that I use to work with refused to talk to me unless it directly involved patient care, and they wrote me up for any little infraction that they could find or invent. A few of them even told me that I was a horrible nurse and that I should leave the profession. I cried a lot, but fortunately Ive always been obstinate and I told the battleaxes to take a hike. Ive never forgotten the pain that they caused me, and since then Ive vowed to treat all new graduates with respect. If cheerful new nurses irritate you, so be it, but look at the situation logically. Who is going to take care of you when you are old if you keep running the newcomers out of the profession? Graduate nurses deserve our support, even the perky ones who report to their first day of work in high heel shoes. Im ...
Aesthetic nursing is a relatively new field. As nurses become more well trained, they can seek additional certifications that enable them to do more procedures, but under the supervision of a physician. At Yager Esthetics, I have had aesthetic nurses only in the last 4 years.. I have spent the last 18 plus years building a reputation of excellence and safety in the Hispanic community, and would never do anything counter to that. I find that my aesthetic nurses can do exceptional work in the areas in which they are trained.. We have nurses doing spider vein injections, or sclerotherapy. We are careful to only treat those that are safe and we can help. Our advanced product, Asclera, is the safest I know of on the market today.. My aesthetic nurse also does injectable fillers and Botox. I made sure to train only someone with great cosmetic vision and an understanding of how to achieve safe, natural, and excellent results. This allows my patients more flexible scheduling to have treatments done. ...
