How's Your Nursing Bedside Manner?
One of the more difficult aspects of nursing comes with the interaction between the nurse and patient. When considering a patient’s level of fear, anxiety, stress, or pain, one of the best ways to support a patient is to provide a level head that is both compassionate and informative, while maintaining safe, professional boundaries.
Most patients look at the nursing staff as a consideration for the entire medical experience. A nurse with the right attitude can make a big difference in both the patient’s satisfaction, as well as the patient’s medical outcome.
