Part (5): Essay
List (5) the principles of psychiatric nursing and explain one (10
(1)- Patient Accepted exactly as he is: Acceptance conveys the feeling of being loved and cared for. Acceptance provides the patient with an experience which is emotionally natural, where he finds unlearning of his sick behavior less threatening before he can relearn the art of living with himself Acceptance does not mean complete permissiveness but acceptance means setting of positive behavior to convey to him respect as an individual human being acceptance is expressed in the following A - Be non judgmental and non -punitive : - We don't judge patient's behavior as right or wrong, good or bad, patient is not punished for his undesired behavior. All direct and indirect methods of punishing must be avoided. B- Show interest in the patient as a person by: Study patient's behavior pattern. Listing to him. Making the patient aware in a suitable manner that you are interested Seeking out a patient. Using time spent with him on those things he is interested in. Being aware of his likes and dislikes. Explain when his demands cannot be met. Dealing with his comments, complaints and expressions of approval Accepting his fears as real to him. Avoiding subjects on which he feels sensitive. C - Recognize and reflect on feeling which patient may express: Nurse acts as a sounding board for patient's negative feeling. The nurse- develops skill in identifying the feelings actually expressed, (example of patient's words "I would like to break some one's neck" (anger)," I am a dead person" (feeling of worthlessness. etc.) When patient talk, it is not the content but the feelings a skilled observer notices. D - Talk with a purpose: Nurse's conversation with a patient must revolve around his need, wants and interest's .Nurse's responses must guide her to understand Indirect approaches like reflection, open - end questions, focusing on a point, presenting reality, are more effective when the problems are Avoid evaluative, hostile, probing responses and use the understanding responses which may help the patient to explore his E - Permit patient to express strongly held feeling: Strong emotions bottled up are potentially explosive and dangerous. It is better to permit the patient to express his strong feeling without disapproval or punishment. Feeling of anxiety, fear, hostility, hatred or anger should be expected, tolerated and allowed expression. Expression of these negative feeling may be encouraged in verbal or symbolic manner. Nurse must accept the expression of patient's strong, negative feeling quietly and calmly. In other words a nurse makes the patient as comfortable with his illness as possible. II - Self understanding as a therapeutic tool: Self understanding leads to understanding of others. Knowing how one ought to feel or act is important to understand why one behaves the way she does is vital. A patient's behavior can produce a lot of anxiety or fear in the nurse and she ought to understand why she is anxious or frightened. How can a nurse understand herself better?
Exchange personal experience freely and frankly with your Discuss your personal reaction with on experienced person. Participate in group conference regarding your patient care. Keep reflecting on why you feel or act way you do III Consistency is used to contribute to patient's security A -Why Not knowing what to expect, or fear of unknown produces anxiety. A. Patient must feel that he can depend on the people working in ward.
B. Areas where consistency must operate:-
1. Attitude of the staff. 2. Ward routine. 3. Define the limitation placed on the patient. C. How should consistency operate :-
Patient to be constantly and continuously exposed to an atmosphere of quiet acceptance. Consistency must to be maintained from nurse to nurse and shift which must be planned properly. Permissiveness to be limited e.g. with patient's who are homicidal, suicidal, hyperactive and suspicious. Patient is allowed to feel as he does but limitations are put on his Limit and its reinforcement requires a great deal of tact and understanding, and should be done in a quiet and matter of fact way. The attempt to win patient's liking (favoritism) is most disastrous for IV-Reassurance must to be given in suitable and acceptable Reassurance building Patient's confidence or restoring his confidence, understand the meaning of experience to the patient A nurse must have an ability to see how a situation appears to the patient. B- How to give reassurance?
Be truly interested in patient's problems. Pay attention to the matter that is important to the patient - no matter however insignificant it may be. Allow him to be as sick as he needs' to be. Be aware and accept how the patient really feels Do things for the patient without asking anything of the patient in return such as improved behavior or show of appreciation. Sit beside patient even when he does not want to talk. Accepting patient's silence and your physical presence can be very reassurance to the patient Listen to personal without showing surprise or disapproval. Agree that patient has a problem and think along with him to solve Provide patient with acceptable outlet of anxiety. C- Avoid saying to the patient:
You will get well" Your fears are groundless" You are a nice person " All will end well" No thing to worry " V-Patient's behavior is changed through emotional experience not by rational interpretation. Major focus is on feeling aspect and not intellectual aspect. Telling and advising patients are not effective in changing behavior. Patient's defensive behavior against anxiety producing stress or his beliefs is based on strong emotional needs. The more beliefs are challenged the more the patient becomes Corrective emotional experience can bring about behavior change. Help the patient feel emotionally secure to enable him to develop and use understanding of own behavior Understanding cannot be forced; insight and understanding of ones own behavior is painful. Interpretation is only done when patient is ready for it i.e. secure enough to tolerate it and able to apply it to alter his behavior Attitude are also not identified for the patient, when he is ready to tolerate them, he will identify them himself. VI-Unnecessary increase in patient's anxiety should be avoided A- What's anxiety? It is a threat to biological integrity of the self system (ego) of the B- What factors, situation, topics or approaches that increase anxiety? This may differ from patient to patient, but some general types of situation which increased anxiety are: - 1. Direct contradiction of patient's psychotic ideas. 2. Demands on patient which he obviously cannot meet. 4. Indiscriminate use of professional terms. 5. Careless conversation within patient's hearing. 6. Calling attention to patient's defects. 8. Lack of proper orientation. 9. Threats, sharp command and indifference. 10. Asking question about family, work friends, and home which are not good for the first phase of patient - nurse relationship. Best rule is to follow patient's lead 11. Nurse's own anxiety VII. Observation of mentally ill patient is directed toward why of Everything patient does or says is observed and analyzed, to seek its motivation and to understand what he is trying to accomplish. Continuous prediction of patient's behavior improves skills of Try to learn patient's basic problem and then guess what he will do, if your prediction is right, ask yourself why? If prediction is wrong again. Ask yourself why? Keep asking yourself what is the goal of the patient? Why did he behave and the way did he behaves? (Be B- What do you mean by objectivity? Objectivity is an ability to evaluate exactly what a patient what's to say and not mix up your own reeling, opinion or judgment Objectivity is not coldness. Indifference and absence of feeling, but it is an ability not to let your own judgment get confused with emotional warmth. C- How can you be objective? One important way is to keep indulging in introspection make sure that your own emotional needs don't take precedence care of D- What is the situation of lack of objectivity? 1. Nurse is critical of patient. 2. Defending or justifying herself. 3. Demanding that patient should treat her in a certain way 4. Evaluating patient's behavior as right or wrong. Nurse needs to be honest with her. This honesty can be painful but Ability to accept the faults one cannot change and personal limitations of herself are as important as her ability to accept her VIII - Maintain realistic nurse – patient relationship A realistic or professional relationship focuses on the personal and emotional needs of the patient's and not on nurse's needs such a relationship is therapeutically oriented and planned. It always based on patient's needs. Nurse keeps analyzing the interaction between herself arid the patient to prepare herself to guide the patient towards Nurse must differentiate between patient's demands and actual needs- (For discussion) what is the difference between social and professional relationships? What do we mean by an intimate relationship? Is it therapeutic? IX- Verbal and physical force must be avoided if possible Any kind of force applied on patient results in psychological trauma should be avoided, unless it is a patient-who-needs and welcome If the nurse is knowledgeable in predicting patient's behavior, she can prevent an onset of undesirable behavior. If at all force needs to be used the following steps must be applied. 1. Carry out the procedure quickly, firmly and efficiently with 2. Anger or annoyance should not be shown. 3. No verbal comments should be made during the procedure except to tell the patient in a matter - of - fact - tone the reason for the procedure and, also that he will be allowed to mix with others when he has more control of himself. 4. Never let the patient feel that he is being .punished, attend to his 5. Never remind a patient again about the incidence. 6. Nursing team must nave self control and understanding in carry out the procedure? X - Nursing care centered on patient as a person, not on control symptoms: Every behavior is meaningful and behavior is reflected in the symptoms a patient presents, two patients showing the same symptom may be expressing different needs , analysis and study of symptoms are necessary to reveal their meaning and their significance to the patient. List three characteristics of the histrionic personality disorder (5
