ICU is the official voice of health care in British Columbia, Canada. ICU is the voice of the patient and the family in ICU. I’m coordinating the communication between the patient and the staff of the hospital. The Icu representative (ICU staff) coordinates all communication from the patient with the physician, other ICU staff, the patient’s family, and other health care workers.
The patient’s family and other health care workers make up a considerable part of the medical team in any hospital or medical center. If the patient and their family do not have a good relationship, there can be misunderstandings and communication barriers. Each patient needs to have open communication with the staff of their facility.
How does communication occur between a patient and their family? When the patient arrives at the facility, they are greeted and given a seat. They then are seated and observed by the attending physician or doctor. The physician and the attending nurses may ask them several questions. These questions are usually related to the condition of the patient and their current medical history. A brief explanation of what happened when the patient was admitted to the facility is usually provided by the physician or the nurse.
The patient’s family may describe the patient’s current medical condition and any medications taken. The physician and the nurse need to keep a record of the symptom and the patient’s comments.
It is time for the physician and the nurse to follow up with the patient and their family. Communication during the consultation is essential. Suppose a patient and their family want to discuss the case and treatment options. Many communication problems occur when lines of communication between physicians and families are closed. Some physicians will refuse to accept insurance claims for their services and will not provide the information requested by the patient or his family.
Another common issue associated with communication between patients and their families is that some physicians are impersonal and cold. This may cause issues such as the patient feeling unappreciated or thoughtless. For example, it is often difficult for a patient to provide a detailed description of his condition to a single physician. In addition, some patients may feel the need to discuss their symptoms with more than one physician because of perceived differences in treatment methods. Communication between nurse and patient family is important.
There are several ways that patients and their families can help themselves improve communication with their doctors. First, the patient needs to be clear about what is required to receive a specific treatment. Patients should be clear about the type of treatment they need and how they are expected to pay for it.
Patients need to be proactive in communicating with their physicians. By participating in a continuing medical education training program, patients can learn about new medical terms and methods. In addition, by making regular appointments with their physicians, patients can learn about new medications, medical procedures, and treatment options. Doctors should be willing to answer any questions that a patient has and take the time to listen to the patient’s family. In short, patients and their families need to work closely together to ensure that their doctor’s needs are met. If patients and families work well with their doctors, they will benefit from a better working relationship and better overall health.
