Perhaps among the most important and admirable role of nurses is the emotional and psychological role they offer the patients at the hour of death which is the most critical moment of a persons life. Again, this they do by virtue of their round-the-clock proximity and companionship with patients and in most cases, nurses are the nearest and often only human companion to offer last minute succor to the patient at this harrowing moment.
Nursing Interventions for Imbalanced Nutrition (Excessive): The Nurse shall explain and have patient verbalize the relationship of diabetes and diet, and the patient shall give a return explanation is his / her own words. (this nursing intervention will help clear up and misconseptions and reinforce the medical value of a healthy diabetic diet).
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.
Nurses also play crucial role in post recovery rehabilitation of patients. Besides their vital role in patient care, nurses play a similar important role in primary and preventive health care in the form of public health promotion - educating the public on the prevention of diseases, accidents and general health knowledge. Experienced and well trained nurses also play remarkable role in medical research and diagnosis based on long years of experience in patient care.
In recent times we have witnessed quite a few reports of malpractices by doctors and nurses alike. Shocking as it may be negligence and malpractices are rising at an alarming rate.
