to asnwer question 1:
Ethical principles:
– Justice is fairness. Nurses must be fair when they distribute care, for example, among the patients in the group of patients that they are taking care of. Care must be fairly, justly, and equitably distributed among a group of patients.
– Beneficence is doing good and the right thing for the patient.
– Nonmaleficence is doing no harm, as stated in the historical Hippocratic Oath. Harm can be intentional or unintentional.
– Accountability is accepting responsibility for one’s own actions. Nurses are accountable for their nursing care and other actions. They must accept all of the professional and personal consequences that can occur as the result of their actions.
– Fidelity is keeping one’s promises. The nurse must be faithful and true to their professional promises and responsibilities by providing high quality, safe care in a competent manner.
– Autonomy and patient self-determination are upheld when the nurse accepts the client as a unique person who has the innate right to have their own opinions, perspectives, values and beliefs. Nurses encourage patients to make their own decision without any judgments or coercion from the nurse. The patient has the right to reject or accept all treatments.
– Veracity is being completely truthful with patients; nurses must not withhold the whole truth from clients even when it may lead to patient distress.

Identify relevant assessment data for a patient with a burn injury including Present problem, Social History and medical history.

Identify relevant assessment data for a patient with a burn injury including Present problem, Social History and medical history. 150 150 Ann M

Case Study Burn Overview A burn is a tissue injury that occurs when there is contact between tissue and an energy source such as heat, flame, chemicals, electrical current, or radiation. The severity of a burn is determined by the depth, extent, and location of the burn in addition to the patient risk factors. Severe burns can cause an increase in capillary permeability with resultant fluid and electrolyte shifts, leading to edema and hypovolemic shock. Burns can be classified into three phases. The emergent (resuscitative) phase is the period of time required to resolve the immediate, life-threatening problems resulting from the burn injury. The acute (wound healing) phase begins with the mobilization of extracellular fluid and subsequent diuresis. This phase is concluded when the burned area is completely covered by skin grafts or when the wounds are healed. The rehabilitative (restorative) phase begins when the patient’s burn wounds have healed and the patient is engaging in some level of self-care. Case Study P.B., a 56-year-old housewife and grandmother, is admitted to the emergency department by ambulance with burns sustained when her gas furnace exploded while she was relighting a pilot light. She is awake and oriented but very agitated and frightened and cannot remember the accident. She is having severe pain in her face and upper chest. She is shivering and complains of being cold, and her voice is raspy. Her hair and eyebrows are singed, and she has mixed areas of red, fluid-filled vesicles and waxy, white skin involving her face, anterior neck, all of her right arm, dorsal aspect of her left arm, and anterior chest and abdomen. Her heart rate is 132 beats/min, respiratory rate is 36 breaths/min, and a thigh blood pressure is 110/52 mm Hg. P.B.’s past medical history is positive for a myocardial infarction at age 50 with resultant chronic heart failure. Her current medications are as follows: quinapril (Accupril) 20 mg daily, furosemide (Lasix) 20 mg daily, and atorvastatin 40 mg daily. Objectives • Identify relevant assessment data for a patient with a burn injury including Present problem, Social History and medical history. • Analyze results of diagnostic studies for a patient with a burn injury. • Describe interprofessional care of a patient with a burn injury, including fluid replacement therapy and wound management. • Analyze diagnostic studies for a patient with a burn injury: Lab and diagnostic studies and clinical relevance include in EHR • Develop a prioritize nursing care plan for a patient with a burn injury select 2 Nursing Diagnosis

Write a PICOT question in your selected nursing practice problem area of interest. The PICOT question should be applicable to your proposed capstone project

Write a PICOT question in your selected nursing practice problem area of interest. The PICOT question should be applicable to your proposed capstone project 150 150 Ann M

For this assignment, you will create a clinical guiding question know as a PICOT question. The PICOT question must be relevant to a nursing practice problem. To support your PICOT question, identify six supporting peer-reviewed research articles, as indicated below. The PICOT question and six peer-reviewed research articles you choose will be utilized for subsequent assignments.
Use the***** “Literature Evaluation Table”****** to complete this assignment.
Select a nursing practice problem of interest to use as the focus of your research. Start with the patient population and identify a clinical problem or issue that arises from the patient population. In 200–250 words, provide a summary of the clinical
issue. the 250 word papge is in addition to the filled out form LiteratureEvaluationTable form and reference page
Following the PICOT format, write a PICOT question in your selected nursing practice problem area of interest. The PICOT question should be applicable to your proposed capstone project (the project students must complete during their final course in the RN-BSN program of study).
The PICOT question will provide a framework for your capstone project.
Conduct a literature search to locate six research articles focused on your selected nursing practice problem of interest. This literature search should include three quantitative and three qualitative peer-reviewed research articles to support your nursing practice problem.
Note: To assist in your search, remove the words qualitative and quantitative and include words that narrow or broaden your main topic. For example: Search for diabetes and pediatric and dialysis. To determine what research design was used in the articles the search produced, review the abstract and the methods section of the article. The author will provide a description of data collection using qualitative or quantitative methods. Systematic Reviews, Literature Reviews, and Metanalysis articles are good resources and provide a strong level of evidence but are not considered primary research articles. Therefore, they should not be included in this assignment.

Why are philosophy and science important to a practice discipline?

Why are philosophy and science important to a practice discipline? 150 150 Ann M

Philosophy and Science in a Practice Discipline

A nurse enters a patient’s room to check her vitals and spends some time talking with the patient’s family how they are doing.

Later that day, another nurse responds to the patient’s call button; she becomes concerned when she discovers that the patient is running a fever and is in pain despite receiving the medication that has been ordered for her. She recalls a similar instance with a different patient, and keeps that in mind as she asks the patient about how she is feeling.

These seemingly simple actions are guided by philosophy—each nurse’s view of nursing and appropriate patient care.

Do you, personally, think nursing should rely solely on biological science? Or do you think it is important for nursing to incorporate a broader, more holistic approach to care? How do you know what you know? What sources of information are most significant to you? How should you determine what types of research are applicable to nursing practice?

To prepare:

Reflect on your professional experiences, and assess how philosophy and science influences nursing practice.

Consider how the scientific method is supported by philosophy, and how it influences nursing knowledge.

BY DAY 3, POST A COHESIVE DISCUSSION ADDRESSING THE FOLLOWING

Why are philosophy and science important to a practice discipline?

How do they legitimize the nursing profession?

Provide examples from your nursing practice that demonstrate how the scientific method influences nursing knowledge.
