2. Both need to cultivate an eye for detail Detectives observe their surroundings carefully, even when they think there is nothing special to observe, because they never know what might end up being important to solve their case. Nurses observe even the littlest thing about a patient because they know every bit of information may make a difference in that patients care or recovery.
1. The eyes. There is no greater tool to a nurse than the eyes. You can tell a lot just by casting a quick glance at your patient. Straight away you can tell how critical they are just by observing their colour, the rhythm of their breathing, chest movement or lack of it, a bleeding wound, a swollen leg, urine colour and any other physical signs of distress you can think of. Once youve noticed an abnormality, you can proceed with caution.
Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN): Theses nurses perform the same job function as licensed practical nurses. LVNs provide certain medical services such as giving enemas, treating bedsores, bandaging wounds, and recording vitals. They also assist patients with bathing and dressing.
3. Both must learn to read peoples faces. Detectives and Nurses watch body language and notice whether it seems natural and agrees with their words. Criminals might be lying to avoid incrimination. Patients might be hiding the truth because of embarrassment, lack of understanding or cultural beliefs. A patient may say hes not in pain, but have facial grimacing.
Generally a malpractice in nursing is the outcome of negligence by the professional, thus causing physical and emotional hurt to the patient under care. Mistakes during surgical assistance, baby delivery, medication etc are some of the failures witnessed in the nursing sector. Usually the basic legal issues in malpractices are the same as in common neglect.
