“Everything should be beautiful in a person, and his face, and clothing, and soul, and thoughts.”
In forming the correct relationship of the nurse with their sick relatives and colleagues, not only the spiritual, but also the external appearance of the nurse is important. Clothing. facial expressions, manner of behavior reflect some aspects of the nurse’s personality and, in particular, the degree of her concern,
Attention to the patient, the ability to empathize. Hippocrates also pointed out that doctors should “keep themselves clean, have good clothes and rub themselves with fragrant ointments, because all this is usually pleasant for the sick.” We must not forget that patients want to see a medical professional as an ideal specialist, but if they find flaws in his appearance, then they relate them to his professional activities. Honey. The employee should not allow negligence when examining patients. For example, you should not wash your hands before examining a patient at home. Nuisance is unacceptable, since in the patient’s view it reduces the prestige of a medical professional. It also happens that the nurse has an unpleasant sensation at the sight of an unpleasant elderly or severe patient. But anyone who chooses the work of a physician must firmly remember that in medicine there is no dirty work.
Brightly painted lips. Long varnished nails, fingers studded with jewelry, trendy hairstyle …
But the patient is not indifferent to this, In excessive attention to honey. employee to his own appearance, he may suspect inattention to himself as a patient. The desire to have an impressive appearance dominates some honey. workers over professional diligence. They forget that the knitted blouse is not completely covered by the sleeve of the dressing gown, the woolen dress increases the possibility of infection of others. “As for the appearance of the doctor, even if he is with a face full of thoughts, he is not severe, because it shows pride and misanthropy” (Hippocrates). There will be no trust in honey. to a worker who has a frowning gaze, a casual pose, and he speaks as if doing a favor. Very soon, the patient becomes clear to the patient sincerity, and where he sees deliberate politeness, obsessive helpfulness, a “smile on duty”. Nurse must be able to keep simple, speak clearly, calmly, restrainedly and without apparent effort to win over the sick – to be natural beautiful in everything.
The physician’s appearance must reflect inner composure, self-discipline, combine mild rigor and form, which remains unchanged within certain limits. Deviations can only be minor. The medical “uniform” does not need to be decorated. She herself decorates a person, symbolizes the purity of thoughts by a doctor. The patient is sure that this is a neat honey. the worker can treat well. All this resembles a heavy joy, which temporarily or permanently disappears. He has self-pity, involuntary envy, dissatisfaction with the doctor. Suffering is exacerbated. Appearance should harmoniously complement the internal appeal of honey. workers reassuring the sick, making a pleasant impression on their relatives.
Questions of medical psychology in the activities of the average medical worker.
The relationship between the patient and the medical worker has not only common features, but also the psyche, as well as the personality and behavior of medical workers, the general principles of ethics and indeontology. The primary responsibility for the nature of this relationship always rests with healthcare providers. He should be responsible for his relationship with the patient.
It is well known that the effectiveness of treatment largely depends on the presence of the patient in all cases, and this, in turn, is associated with constant trust.
Figuratively speaking, treatment begins with the reception desk and the emergency room, from the waiting place for the upcoming medical examination. The situation of the patient should be clear, business and at the same time simple. There should be silence in the doctor’s office and corridors, the air is always fresh. It is necessary to deal with the so-called hospital odors. The design of rooms and waiting rooms has the sole purpose of reassuring the patient, giving him a sense of confidence. Showcases and posters should be selected so that they contribute to the development of sanitary-hygienic and preventive skills, do not contain materials reminding the patient of suffering, and exclude the possibility of jerking.
The direct responsibility of the doctor and the nurse is to destroy the psychological barrier in contact with the patient, arouse his trust, creating an atmosphere of participation and warmth. It should be remembered that the patient, especially at the first meeting with medical workers, very carefully monitors their every gesture, facial expression and speech, tries to catch in their words and behavior something that has confidence and frankness. Depending on how much the patient’s desire to tell about himself will be understood and supported during the first conversation, contact with the doctor will be so durable in the future. Only after establishing contact with the patient can we proceed to assess the results of analyzes and other auxiliary examination methods. It is necessary that the patient understands that the medical workers to whom he came for help are interested not only in diagnostic issues, but also in the person who addressed them.
Of particular importance are the culture of the doctor’s speech, as well as the content of the conversation. When answering the patient’s questions, one should not be limited to general phrases, as this will cause him anxiety about the outcome of the disease, doubt about the qualification of the doctor.
The patient’s trust in medicine can be significantly undermined if he notices that a relationship is strained between the doctor and the nurse, if the nurse admits irrelevant remarks during admission, does not clearly follow the doctor’s instructions. The patient may have doubts about the competence of medical workers, the appropriateness of their appointments, especially if the appointment is dry, formal, without proper listening and examination of the patient and is limited to writing prescriptions.
Of the mental disorders, the most common in patients is a feeling of anxiety, even fear for the outcome of the disease. Moreover, different people, depending on age and profession, intelligence, degree of cultural development and character, treat their ailment differently.
The effectiveness of the appointment of physiotherapy, medication and other treatment often depends on the patient’s faith in favor of therapeutic measures. This sense of faith reflects the success of the treatment. When performing the procedures prescribed by the doctor, the nurse should be able to get in touch with the patient and his behavior, by talking with the patient, raise his mood and strengthen his faith in successful treatment.
