The nursing ethics code of ethics defines the behavior expected of a healthcare worker, sets the standards to be followed, and describes the situations and circumstances in which a healthcare worker is expected to discharge their duties. It also outlines how to respect the rights and privacy of patients during healthcare procedures, and defines elements that contribute to the quality of healthcare received by patients and further minimize risks associated with illness, infection, and complications.
1. Patients readers are expected to communicate openly with their nurses and explain what is happening to them, why they are having a particular medical procedure or assessment, what they want, why they must stop if satisfied, and what they can do to help facilitate the process. The nurse needs to respect the patient’s communication, privacy, and dignity.
2. The nurse should ensure that they communicate correctly between patients and healthcare workers, entering the patient’s personal information and medical history into the patient’s care information, and provide accurate and relevant answers. The patient is expected to be able to ask questions, give consent, and identify themselves when communicating with the healthcare professional. If the nurse mistakes a name or wrong information, they should inform the patient and provide them with corrective information.
3. During healthcare procedures, the nurse should move the patient to a place of rest and later to the recovery area, away from any moving or collapsed equipment. The nurse should later move the patient to the hospital’s recovery room.
4. The nurse should apply a topical anesthetic to the wound, use a scarification antibiotic, protect the wound from infections, evaluate the wound for signs of infection, and prepare for laboratory testing.
5. Scientists and doctors should communicate openly when discussing their research in progress, case studies, and treatment plans. The scientific peer-review process (retractions, suspensions, blocking) of published studies is a key part of ensuring the validity and reliability of the research. Once blocked, inactive studies become public information. Additionally, the scientific peer review process inhibits correcting poorly designed studies and providing necessary information to the public.
6. Physicians who have a social objective that their hospital provides the most comprehensive care for patients with a specific illness or condition are accountable for the outcomes of those patients.
Healthcare workers and hospitals can take certain steps to reduce errors, prevent medical errors, and promote public acceptance of medical advances. workplaces should have a safe and agreeable working environment for healthcare workers, and patients should have confidence in the science and technology used to help them prevent illness and treat disease.
In hospitals nationwide, a growing number of workers are taking part in employee wellness programs as a way to reduce expensive and painful hospitalizations as well as long hospital stays. Scientists, doctors, and researchers continue to provide evidence-based evaluations of the often neglected social issues surround healthcare provision. By implementing several simple-to-follow actions, workplaces can promote a safer more pleasant workplace by accomplishing several important public health goals:
1. Increase energy, vitality, and productivity
2. Improve operational readiness and flexibility
3. Reduce medical errors and improve staffing flexibility
4. Improves cardiovascular wellness and health-risk reduction
5. Help create and maintain a safe and harmonious workplace society
6. Achieve higher levels of employee efficiency and productivity
7. Improve the quality of the workplace and raise employee awareness of safety
8. Help create and maintain a positive corporate brand
9.Provide avenues for complaint management and independent review
10. Strengthen employee relationships in use guarding against discrimination and harassment
11. Enriched learning environment by reducing the risk of stress
12. A positive association between work environment and health benefit rates
13. A decrease in the incidence of burn-out and employee turnover
14. A better coordination between pharmacogenetic testing and interventions
15. A clear link between information systems and brain function
16. A clear link between neurocognitive training and sustained attention, cognitive control, and mood
17. Effective usages of interactional assistive technology
18. Influences physician attention, healthiness, and radiological treatment
