Nurses are trained to acquire and apply patient assessment skills. These skills are the cornerstone of the knowledge nurse. The knowledge and procedures for developing such skills are learned in the first two years of nursing school and are cleansed in the clinic, as the student nurse takes a higher charge. Nursing Funds "Care of Standards" are as follows:
Standard 1. Evaluation
Nurses should use all their senses during the assessment. These include hearing, touching, visual and therapeutic communication. The cephalocaudal approach is most widely used. In other words, patient assessment from head to toe. The nurse needs to know that he can make a thorough evaluation. Data collection forms the basis for the next step in the care standard, which is the diagnosis. The nurse must have all the necessary equipment, such as a balance, a measuring tape, a thermometer, a blood pressure monitor, a stethoscope and a swing lamp. The setting is also very important during the evaluation. If a client is nervous or anxious, he or she may not be willing to answer the questions that the nurse is asking or need to investigate. Getting a quiet environment is not always possible, especially in an emergency. Therefore, the nurse needs to pay close attention and try to formulate as many relevant data as possible to formulation of a breastfeeding diagnosis. For example, when assessing a client who complains about severe stomach pain, he asks what foods they consume. give the nurse more relevant information than to ask how many sisters or sisters there are.
Nursing diagnosis is not a medical diagnosis. Medical diagnosis would be the medical condition of "Diabetes". While a breastfeeding diagnosis is "Altered Tissue Perfusion" associated with decreased oxygenation of the tissues, which is confirmed by a 92% pulse oximeter depending on the medical condition of "emphysema". Nursing diagnosis is a formal statement of how the client responds to a true or perceived illness. When the diagnosis is set up, the nurse attempts to formulate steps that help the client relieve and / or mediate how they respond to the actual or perceived illness
. Result Identification
In this process, nurses use assessment and diagnosis to reach the patients' goals of achieving a higher level of wellness. Such goals may simply be that the patient understands the blood glucose test today, or perhaps a new mother confirms the sense of security now that he has studied the right way to breastfeed. The nurse needs to plan the goals the customer has to reach customers. For example, the goal of a client usually departing two days after knee surgery can not be realized in the sense that the client's knee does not heal perfectly. However, the goal is that the client will be able to demonstrate the correct use of paws, it would be more realistic. This goal can be measured as the patient is in the hospital and the nurse can learn and observe the return demonstration. Therefore, the goals and outputs of the customer must be measurable
The design standard builds on the activities of clients while in the hospital environment. Therefore, the nurse needs to plan the teaching and presentation of tasks when the patient is free to learn. This includes treatment of pain relief before you learn to walk with paws or wait until a patient has finished eating before learning how to use the syringe. The atmosphere should help learn the client
V. Implementing a Standard
This standard requires your nurse to test the methods and steps that are designed to reach client goals. During the implementation, the nurse will perform the necessary actions for the client's plan. If teaching is one goal, then the nurse will document the time, place, method and information learned.
Standard VI. Rating
Rating is the ultimate standard. In this step, the nurse determines whether the goals originally set for the client were met. If the nurse concludes that the goal or goals are not met, the plan must be reviewed and documented. The goals should therefore be timely and measurable. If the client was to successfully use the crutches and the client was able to re-introduce the nurse, then the goal was met.
The above standards are the cornerstone of the nursing profession. These standards require time and experience for learning and implementation. Experience is the best teacher and the nurse continually strives for excellence in patient care and recognizes how to help patients achieve a higher level of physical and emotional wellness.
