Pediatric Burn Care and High Acuity Nursing
An 11 page paper discussing the epidemiology, pathophysiology of burns, as well as clinical issues involved in care of them. High-acuity nursing is more intensive and far more costly than other types of care, and it generally is reserved for those cases requiring either more advanced or more intricate techniques. This paper reviews three articles reporting on nursing research while also addressing the personal and financial costs of burns. It includes the case of Ms. Pierce, severely burned as a child who was able to successfully complete a pregnancy despite the inelastic nature of her burned skin. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
Overview of Intensive Care Nursing
A 3 page paper discussing why nurses would choose to work in intensive care. The president of the AACN characterizes intensive care nurses as high achievers who continually seek to improve care and conditions. Though many patients are unconscious and offer no direct interaction with intensive care nurses, patients’ families are “patients” themselves, who view intensive care nurses as invaluable sources of information and insight. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
Katie Eriksson's Nursing Theory
A 5 page paper discussing the nursing theory of Katie Eriksson, which focuses on caring in the Christian tradition. Some practicing nurses have objected to theory-based care, at least initially, on the grounds that it is not caring at all but rather reduces the patient to a process component that needs medical attention. Katie Eriksson dispenses with the qualifiers shrouding that mission of caring, however, formulating her own theory of caring-based nursing, one that she places in the context of Christian commitment. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
Long Term Care Environments and Nursing Care Plans
A 6 page paper discussing the form, advantages and disadvantages a nursing concept. The nursing concept discussed here is the care plan, specifically as it applies to long term care. Planning long term or nursing home care always has been a priority for the best such facilities providing that type of patient care, but it receives even greater as the population ages. Such plans incorporate legal requirements and the wishes of patients and their families, with the effect of reducing uncertainty of action. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
Palliative Care and the Theory of Dorothea Orem
A 5 page research paper. In addressing nursing practice and the needs of patients, nurses often adopt a theoretical model that aids them in conceptualize and meeting those needs. The following examination looks at how Orem's Self-Care Deficit Theory facilitates and informs palliative care for a patient with arm lymphedema. It will show how Orem's model of nursing care fits the needs of this patient and facilitates helping the patient to reach self-care deficit goals. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
