What factors in these hospitals ———————————————————————————————————— upset and.

I completely agree with Shanice’s analysis of the Lewis Blackman case and the importance of effective communication, collaboration, and patient-centered care in healthcare. The case is a perfect example of the negative consequences of a lack of teamwork and communication between healthcare professionals, patients, and their families. Helen Haskell’s observation that she saw almost no evidence of teamwork in the hospital is concerning. The lack of teamwork among healthcare professionals can lead to poor outcomes and negatively impact patient care. A recent study suggests that teamwork and collaboration among healthcare professionals can improve patient outcomes and reduce medical errors (Knobloch et al., 2019). Shanice effectively highlights the need for a culture of teamwork and collaboration in hospitals and stresses the importance of involving patients and their families in decision-making to ensure improved patient outcomes and satisfaction. This approach to patient-centered care is supported by recent studies highlighting the importance of involving patients and their families in decision-making (Hahn-Goldberg et al., 2022).

Furthermore, Shanice’s use of evidence-based research supports their arguments and gives credence to their claims. The inclusion of Gausvik et al.’s study on interdisciplinary care teams and communication among healthcare professionals shows that Shanice has done their research and is well-informed on the topic. Additionally, Shanice’s personal experience adds a layer of relatability and authenticity to the discussion.

However, Shanice could have gone more in-depth with their analysis of the culture in hospitals. While they briefly mention their own experiences with a similar lack of teamwork and communication, they could have explored the topic further by discussing the reasons behind this culture and potential solutions for addressing it. Additionally, it would have been helpful for Shanice to provide more examples of hospitals or healthcare facilities with a positive culture of teamwork and communication.

Shanice’s analysis is well-structured, supported by evidence-based research, and thought-provoking. It highlights the importance of effective communication and collaboration in healthcare and serves as a reminder of the potential consequences of lacking these elements.

Your analysis of Helen Haskell’s characteristics ascribed to a “good” or professional nurse/physician is thorough and accurate. It is important for healthcare professionals to possess these qualities in order to provide high-quality patient care. Health literacy is an important concept in the nursing practice and patient care. A recent study has shown that health literacy is a critical concept in nursing practice, and it is essential to ensure that patients understand the information provided to them to promote optimal health outcomes (Parnell et al., 2019). Empathy, critical thinking, and patient advocacy are especially important as they enable healthcare providers to communicate effectively with patients and meet their needs.

I agree with your reaction to Haskell’s suggestion that patients need to be empowered and that nurses need to embrace it. Patient empowerment is crucial in promoting patient-centered care and improving patient outcomes. Healthcare providers should encourage patients to be involved in their care and value their input in decision-making.

Your explanation of Haskell’s “misplaced professionalism” concept is clear and concise. It is important for healthcare providers to recognize the limitations of their own knowledge and to listen to their patients in order to provide effective care. Patients have unique experiences and insights that can be invaluable to healthcare providers in developing treatment plans tailored to their needs.

Your examples of “misplaced professionalism” are also insightful and relevant. A recent study was conducted, which suggests that increasing collaboration between the two professions through shared education and training opportunities could improve patient care outcomes (Williamson et al., 2022). The stigma of drug-seeking behavior can lead to patients being unfairly judged and denied appropriate pain management. It is important for healthcare providers to approach each patient with an open mind and to consider the individual circumstances that may be contributing to their complaints.

Overall, your article analysis and responses to the questions are thoughtful and well-supported. Your insights into the importance of patient-centered care and the need for healthcare providers to listen to their patients are particularly noteworthy. I appreciate your thoughtful and thorough analysis of the article.
