A Healthy Work Environment

1

In the course of the nursing career, nurses face the risk of repetitive injuries from their work when administering drugs, handling patients and other responsibilities. Stress injuries, burnout and workplace violence has become a common cause of injuries for nurses. As such, nurses’ safety is of concern as it limits the ability of nurses to effectively deliver care. Moreover, the role of a nurse requires that they are of proper mental and physical health (Whitehead et al., 2015). The risk of violence and other problems reduces the ability of a nurse to effectively deliver care to patient hence affect patient safety and outcomes.

In case a hostile coworker is affecting with the ability of a nurse to effectively deliver care, he/she should communicate with the appropriate people. First, the nurse should speak with the hostile co-worker and explain that they are getting disturbed. If this does not work, then the nurse should talk to the supervisor and explain his predicament.

3

Substances abuse by nurses is a serious concern as it affects their ability to deliver safe and competent care. Assisting a nurse who is suspected misuse substances is necessary to ensure negative effects are minimized. One can help the nurse by reporting and ensuring they access impaired-nurse programs that states run to ensure that they are helped but do not lose their license (Whitehead, Weiss & Tappen, 2015).

The most common cause of physical injuries among LPNs is stress injuries from working in difficult environments. Overexertion where a nurse puts too much pressure on a certain part of the body, primarily joints cause injuries (Whitehead et al., 2015). As a nurse manager, several measures including ensuring proper staffing ratios, mandatory leaves, creating effective shifts and others.

5

Quid pro quo and hostile environment are the typical types of sexual harassment in the workplace. Quid pro quo involves a situation where sexual favors are solicited for favorable benefits at home and job continuation (Whitehead et al., 2015). Hostile environment is where an employee faces gender based sexual harassment that is offensive and abuse in nature and delays the ability of the nurse to effectively discharge duties (Whitehead et al., 2015). To deal with sexual harassment, one should confront the harasser to show that the attention is unwanted; report the incident to the supervisor; document the incident; and seek support from other people.

Neither my current rotation nor that of my friend has properly documented policies or procedure for dealing with latex injuries. For needle stick injuries, my current rotation mainly focuses on continuous staff training to prevent. In my colleague’s place, the nurses take part in selection of safety devices that are easy to use in addition to staff training. The main policy for dealing with violence in my place and that of my friend is reporting. Based on these, there is a minimum level of organizational level efforts towards dealing with these problems.

Among the concepts discussed in the ANA website that are of importance to a beginning RN include violence, incivility and bullying and environment. The work environment section introduces the RN to what they should expect in practice and help understand how to deal with it. Violence, incivility and bullying includes issues of safety that are vital to the new RN.

Based on the interview with the staff nurse, substance abuse among nurses can be addressed by personal measures. Rehabilitation of the affected and reduction of job stress would help deal with substance abuse among nurses (Strobbe & Crowley, 2017). She also reported that lack of proper coordination by nursing management was the cause of challenges with emergency preparation hence a quality manager was needed in her unit. A strong nurse management is necessary for quick decision making in high pressure situations (Deetz et al., 2020). Similarly, for a quality work life within the organization, the nurse recommended for strong leadership from the management.

ORDER NOW FOR AN EXCELLENT PAPER FROM HEALTH CARE PAPER GURUS: The Risk of Repetitive Injuries Discussion

 

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
