Nurses not only play the role of patients families and relations by providing necessary minute to minute care, assistance and general support to patients, in the case of children patients, nurses frequently play the role of mothers with all its emotional and psychological requirements by children. The same applies to the care of elderly patients, disabled patients, mental patients and other specialized patients over which the nurse acts as immediate and ever present support and care.
Duty: The Samaritan law is what governs any nurses duty. He/she is duty-bound to care for the patient with his/her utmost ability, skill and knowledge, but only after accepting the valid referral/endorsement from the ER or other nursing department.
The pertinent question is how do the salary and other financial rewards of nurses reflect the very important and wide roles they perform in the health industry or compare with those of doctors?
Common clinical problems and symptoms are well defined to nurses through various nursing care plans. Care plans also help nurses by updating them with the most current practices and professional standards.Some nursing malpractice mistakes include, misuse of medical equipment, medication error, documentation error, failing to perform necessary protocol.
