Hello, I am looking for someone to write an essay on Component 1: write a report on a Critical Incident in healthcare / component 2: Analysis of the Critical Incident in Component 1. It needs to be at least 2500 words.
Other patients in the room were clearly there for other less sensitive issues, but she couldn’t change the order of their treatment, because that would be unprofessional. Instead, while she was waiting and processing orders, she handled my needs to improve my comfort. This helped alleviate a painful experience, and when it came time to be examined and informed that I had only contracted a nasty flu, I was no longer scared, lonely or miserable. Kolcaba notes that nurses were not always viewed strictly as providers of care with a minor comfort support position, essentially less-trained doctors (2003, pgs. 19-21). Rather, in the 19th and early 20th centuries, comfort provision was a key part of nurse care. Part of this may have been the domestication of nurse’s roles and the association of nursing with femininity, but there was also a recognition of a holistic need for provision of comfort and care as well as treatment: “[T]here was nothing concerning the comfort of a patient that was small enough to ignore” (Kolcaba, 2003, pg. 21). Nursing wasn’t just concerned with mechanically providing food, cleaning, and other specific services, but with general well-being. In an era where cures were few and far between, providing comfort became the nurse’s unique role. But since then, the improvement both of cures and of pain medication has made it so that nurses view their comfort role purely physically and mechanically. In the 19th and 20th centuries, nurses did not discuss treatment with patients because this was the role of the physician. While the change away from this norm is undoubtedly both more socially appropriate and just and more medically sensible, one good consequence of this norm was that nurses were de facto mental health care providers, giving patients emotional as well as physical comfort. That soup that day and this critical incident analysis teaches me that the provision of comfort and attending to the needs of patients are vital. Hospitals are scary to many people: They feel deeply averred by sterile environments, other sick people, and an area where people often come to die. Provision of comfort is necessary to avoid deterring people from seeking medical care entirely. Resource management is vital to health care (Woloshynowych et al, 2005). Critical incident reports help guide those analyses. But most critical incident reports, while not looking solely at “death” and using a wide variety of indices and approaches, tend to focus purely on negative outcomes such as accidents. While critical incident reports should tend to take this approach, there is little point in focusing exclusively and perpetually on what was done wrong, what mistakes were made and what miscalculations were engaged in. Analysing success stories and proper provision in some vein, with the same techniques, is essential to resource management: One has to know where to put resources, not just where not to. Resource management in health care improves the provision and efficiency of health care through the following means: 1. Directly improving the efficiency and effectiveness of resources allocated to patients and therefore directly improving patient health (Mercado) 2.
