Staphylococcus aureus (VISA/VRSA)  Continuity of Care – (1)  Information Technology: Change-of-Shift Report (RM FUND 9.0 Chp 5) • Nurses give this report at the conclusion of each shift to the nurse assuming responsibility for the clients. • Formats include face to face, audiotaping, or presentation during walking rounds in each client’s room (unless the client has a roommate or visitors are present) • An effective report should: include significant objective information about the client’s health problems; proceed in a logical sequence; include no gossip or personal opinion; relate recent changes in medications, treatments, procedures, and the discharge plan  Establishing Priorities – (1)  Managing Client Care: Determining Priority Care for a Group of Clients (RM Leadership 7.0 Chp 1) • Prioritize systemic before local (“life before limb”) • Prioritizing interventions for a client in shock over interventions for a client who has a localized limb injury • Prioritize acute (less opportunity for physical adaptation) before chronic (greater opportunity for physical adaptation) • Prioritizing the care of a client who has a new injury/illness (e.g. mental confusion, chest pain) or an acute exacerbation of a previous illness over the care of a client who has a long-term chronic illness • Prioritize actual problems before potential future problems • Prioritizing administration of medication to a client experiencing of medication to a client experiencing acute pain over ambulation of a client at risk for thrombophlebitis • Listen carefully to clients and don’t assume • Asking a client who has a new diagnosis of diabetes mellitus what he feels is most important to learn about disease management • Recognize and respond to trends vs. transient findings • Recognizing a gradual deterioration in a client’s level of consciousness and/or Glasgow Coma Scale score • Recognize indications of medical emergencies and complications vs. expected findings • Recognizing indications of increasing intracranial pressure in a client who has a new diagnosis of a stroke vs. the findings expected following a stroke • Apply clinical knowledge to procedural standards to determine the priority action • Recognizing that the timing of administration of antidiabetic and antimicrobial medications is more important than administration of some other medications  Ethical Practice – (1)  Professional Responsibilities: Demonstration of Veracity (RM Leadership 7.0 Chp 3) • Veracity: the nurse’s duty to tell the truth  Legal Rights and Responsibilities – (1)  Professional Responsibilities: Rights of Clients (RM Leadership 7.0 Chp 3) • Client rights are the legal guarantees that clients have with regard to their health care • Clients using the services of a health care institution retain their rights as individuals and citizens of the United States. The America Hospital Association (AHA) identifies client rights in health care settings in the Patient Care Partnership (www.aha.org) • Residents in nursing facilities that participate in Medicare programs similarly retain resident rights under statutes that govern the operation of these facilities • Nurse are accountable for protecting the rights of clients. Situations that require particular attention include informed consent, refusal of treatment, advance directives, confidentiality, and information security.  Safety and Infection Control – (5)  Accident/Error/Injury Prevention – (2)  Medications Affecting Urinary Output: Indications for the Use of a Diuretic (RM Pharm RN 7.0 Chp 19) • High-ceiling loop diuretics work in the ascending limb of loop of Henle – block reabsorption of sodium and chloride and prevent reabsorption of water. Causes extensive diuresis even with severe renal impairment • They are used when there is an emergent need for rapid mobilization of fluid – pulmonary edema caused by heart failure; conditions not responsive to other diuretics, such as edema caused by liver, cardiac, or kidney disease; or hypertension • Unlabeled use – hypercalcemia  Seizures: Maintaining Seizure Precautions (RM NCC RN 10.0 Chp 13) • Seizure precautions for any child at risk – pad side rails of bed, crib, and wheelchair; keep bed free of objects that could cause injury; have suction and oxygen equipment available  Handling Hazardous and Infectious Materials – (1)  Cancer Treatment Options: Implanted Internal Radiation Device (RM AMS RN 10.0 Chp 91) • Brachytherapy describes internal radiation that is placed close to the target tissue. This is done via placement in a body orifice (vagina) or body cavity (abdomen) or delivered via IV such as with radionuclide iodine, which is absorbed by the thyroid • Brachytherapy provides radiation to the tumor and a limited amount to surrounding normal tissues. Waste products are radioactive until the Isotope has been completely eliminated from the body. Waste products should not be touched by anyone. • Nursing Considerations • Place the client in a private room away from other clients when possible. Keep door closed as much as possible. Place a sign on the door warning of the radiation source. Wear a dosimeter film badge that records personal amount of radiation exposure. Limit visitors to 30-min visits, and have visitors maintain a distance of 6 feet from the source. Visitors and health care personnel who are pregnant or under the age of 18 should not come into contact with the client or radiation source. Weal a lead apron while providing care keeping the front of the apron facing the source of radiation. Keep a lead container in the client’s room if the delivery method could allow spontaneous loss of radioactive material. Tongs are available for placing radioactive material into this container. Follow protocol for proper removal of dressings and bed linens from the room. • Client Education • Inform the client of the need to remain in an indicated position to prevent dislodgement of the radiation implant. Instruct the client to call the nurse for assistance with elimination. Instruct the client and family about radiation precautions needed in health care and home environments.  Standard Precautions/Transmission-Based Precautions/Surgical Asepsis – (2)  Acute Neurological Disorders: Priority Intervention for Meningitis (RM NCC RN 10.0 Chp 12) • The presence of petechiae or a purpuric-type rash requires immediate medical attention • Isolate the client as soon as meningitis is suspected, and maintain droplet precautions per facility protocol – droplet precautions require a private room or a room with clients who have the same infectious disease, ensuring that each client has his or her own designated equipment. Providers and visitors should wear a mask. Maintain respiratory isolation for a minimum of 24 hr after initiation of antibiotic therapy • Monitor vital signs, urine output, fluid status, pain level, and neurologic status • For newborns and infants, monitor head circumference and fontanels for presence of or changes in bulging • Correct fluid volume deficits and then restrict fluids until no evidence of increased ICP and serum sodium levels are within the expected range • Maintain NPO status if the client has a decreased level of consciousness. As the client’s condition improves, advance to clear liquids and then a diet the client can tolerate • Decrease environmental stimuli – provide a quiet environment; minimize exposure to bright light (natural and electric) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -Medical Emergencies – (1)  Emergency Nursing Principles and Management: Priority Assessment (RM AMS RN 10.0 Chp 2) • ABCDE Principle • A = airway/cervical spine • B = breathing • C = circulation • D = disability • E = exposure  Head Injury: Identifying Indications of a Skull Fracture (RM AMS RN 10.0 Chp 14) • Skull fractures can occur following forceful head injury. The brain might be damaged as a result. The client can have localized pain at the site of the fracture, and swelling can occur. The nurse should be alert for drainage from the ears or eyes (cerebral spinal fluid [CSF])  Unexpected Response to Therapies – (2)  Assessment and Management of Newborn Complications: Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (RM MN RN 10.0 Chp 27) • Long-term complications – feeding problems; central nervous system dysfunction (cognitive impairment, cerebral palsy); attention deficit disorder; language abnormalities; microcephaly; delayed growth and development; poor maternal-newborn bonding • Expected findings – monitor the neonate for abstinence syndrome (withdrawal) and increased wakefulness using the neonatal abstinence scoring system that assesses for and score the following: • CNS: High pitched, shrill cry; incessant crying; irritability; tremors; hyperactivity with an increased Moro reflex; increased deep tendon reflexes; increased muscle tone; disturbed sleep pattern; hypertonicity; convulsions • Metabolic, vasomotor, and respiratory findings: Nasal congestion with flaring, frequent yawning, skin mottling, retractions, apnea, tachypnea greater than 60/min, sweating, temperature greater than 37.2° C (99°F) • Gastrointestinal: Poor feeding; regurgitation (projectile vomiting); diarrhea; excessive, uncoordinated, constant sucking • OPIATE WITHDRAWAL: Manifestations of neonatal abstinence syndrome • HEROIN WITHDRAWAL: Low birth weight; Small for gestational age (SGA); Manifestations of neonatal abstinence syndrome; Increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) • METHADONE WITHDRAWAL: Manifestations of neonatal abstinence syndrome: Increased incidence of seizures, sleep pattern disturbances, higher birth weights (compared to with heroin exposure) • MARIJUANA WITHDRAWAL: Preterm birth, meconium staining; Long term effects, such as deficits in attention, cognition, memory, and motor skills • AMPHETAMINE WITHDRAWAL: Preterm or SGA, drowsiness, jitteriness, sleep pattern disturbances, respiratory distress, frequent infections, poor weight gain, emotional disturbances, and delayed growth and development • ALCOHOL WITHDRAWAL: Jitteriness, irritability, increased tone and reflex responses, and seizures • FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME: Facial anomalies: small eyes, flat midface, smooth philtrum, thin upper lip, eyes with a wide spaced appearance, epicanthal folds, strabismus, ptosis, poor suck, small teeth, and cleft lip or palate; Deafness; Abnormal palmar creases and irregular hair; Many vital organ anomalies, such as heart defects, including atrial and ventricular septal defects, tetralogy of Fallot, and patent ductus arteriosus; Developmental delays and neurologic abnormalities; Prenatal and postnatal growth delays; Sleep disturbances • TOBACCO: Prematurity, low birth weight, increased risk for SIDS, increased risk for bronchitis, pneumonia, and developmental delays [Show More]
