Focus charting

Focus charting is a type of nursing documentation which includes four categories, the focus, data, action and response. In the focus category, the nurse writes about his/her focus problem on a specific client. This includes the nursing diagnosis such as Ineffective Airway Clearance related to retained secretions. Then, the data will support the one that you have written in the focus. For example, that you have written Ineffective Airway Clearance, the data that you can write is the respiratory rate, (which happens to be abnormal), (+) productive cough (write the consistency, color,), presence of pallor and cyanosis, and also the Oxygen Saturation. Take note that in focus charting we avoid data's that are not related to the focus. That's why it was called FOCUS charting because you need to FOCUS on the problem itself.

 In the action category, you need to write what are the actions you have done to the client. It is also important that you need to align your action to your data. For example, I wrote Respiratory Rate of 37 breaths per minute, beside it, you can write "Monitored vital signs especially Respiratory Rate." Then, I also wrote (+) productive cough with color of whitish and thick consistency. You can write "Assessed client's cough and sputum; Noted for the color and consistency of the sputum." 

In the response corner, you will write what was the client’s response to your intervention. For example, the client stated. "My cough was decreased and I can breath as clear as now." After that, your signature must be displayed “Juan Dela Cruz, R.N.”.

The advantage of focus charting is it’s in the holistic emphasis on the client and priorities were ease in charting. It easily identifies critical client issues; facilitates communication among all disciplines; improves time efficiency in documentation; improves concise entries that would not duplicate client’s information that was already in the information/flow sheet/checklist.

The guidelines in FDAR includes: Focus charting must be evident every shift; it must be patient-oriented not nursing task-oriented; you must indicate date and time on the first column; separate the topic words from the body notes, Focus in the second column, data, action and response on the third column.

Some of the hospital provides five columns to be more specified. “Date/time” first column, “Focus” second column, “Data” third column, “Action” fourth column, Response at last column.

I hope I helped my colleagues out there. Be the best nurse by being competent together with the character. Godbless!

Ja Rule Will Embrace the Life as a Prisoner

After 2 years in the incident of gun possession, Ja Rule has been guilty and will be punished for 2 years in jail.  Talking with a low down voice, Ja Rule said not anything beyond "guilty" and "yes" to judge of Manhattan that questions him as he admitted to a charge that involves attempting to have a loaded gun A .40-caliber semiautomatic gun founded in a back door of the police in his $250,000-plus Maybach after it was stopped up for speeding.

Ja Rule was sentenced for about 2 years term compared to the 15 year period if he was charged of original gun accuse. Imagine how long will Ja Rule stay to Jail if it was an original gun accuse. His career will fall down instantly. The prosecutors’ request to ban Ja Rule from possessing gun for 10 years which had been declined by the Toronto judge. Ja Rule was fined for $1,200.

Lil Wayne was separately arrested the same night and also pleaded with guilty.

Ja Rule made different hits like “Between Me and You”, with Christina Millian, “I’m real”(Murder Remix) with Jennifer Lopez, “Always on Time” and “Mesmerize” with Ashanti, “Wonderful” with R. Kelly and Ashanti. Also his songs made it to the top 20 of the US billboard Hot 100 which implies that he was a promoter of R and B hits.

Ja Rule was born at Queen in New York with a religion of Jehovah’s Witness. His sister died with respiratory complication leaving him as the only child in the family. His famous album scored by Grammy award in 2002 as best rap album namely “Pain is Love.” This album includes “Living it Up”, “Im Real (Murder Remix)”, “Always on Time” and “Down Ass Bitch”.

After the event, the rappers should be free of obtaining guns to prevent this incident again. This incident serves that the law suits everyone even if you are famous. White is white, black is black meaning when you are right then you should be rewarded and if you are wrong you should be punished. I know that rappers break the rules but not this one. This is a serious case and can ruin you for the rest of your life. In other words, stay simple, follow and live life longer. Even Ja Rule displayed that he was wrong, still he accepts the punishment after the situation he had. Stay famous, stay on top with the law above your ego.

The Sunday’s NFL game between Minneapolis Vikings and New York Giants was postponed. Vikings said that the reason was unsafe conditions related to the Metrodome roof and weather.

The Viking’s fans will very disappointed about this incident. They would like to see them fighting at the Vikings stadium. What were the Viking’s fans would be? If I would be them, I will wait and explain further to other fans what happened and this was a huge unexpected event.

The Giants were trapped at Kansas City International Airport on Saturday, incapable to go to Minnesota due to the snow, said team spokesman Peter John-Baptiste.

Blizzard was unexpected but one factor of weather changed was global warming. Due to the use of technologies as of today, it massively increases the temperature causing to provide abnormality to the weather. The Mother Nature needs to be protected by the one who were in use to her. The responsibility of each and every people is to help Mother Nature by closing all your lights for an hour. It is not for me guys it is for all of us. Let's help each other to prevent this kind of events.

Elizabeth Edwards funeral open to public after the battle against cancer

After Elizabeth Edwards died against cancer, she became an inspiration especially to those cancer patients. With all the respect, Elizabeth was the wife of the former presidential candidate John Edwards. The 61 year old Elizabeth Edwards passed away last Tuesday, December 7, 2010.

“I tell you I think she was an inspiration to everyone who knew her even if she didn’t touch you and that’s how I feel about her and why I want to campaign my response today.” said by Judith Bullock, Raleigh Resident.

After that incident, people should know the importance of fighting. Living with believing and the passion to do what you want to do even though your life will be finished at the specific time. Elizabeth Edwards proved that life will be meaningful with determination. She did not stop supporting his husband in campaigns as well as she fought against cancer. Imagine can you try to fight cancer for 6 years?

I remember when I am caring with cancer patients in this so called tumor clinic. I realized that this disease will provide you too much pain due to chemotherapies. Some takes 3 to 5 cycles of chemotherapy. Admitted to hospital just to finish one cycle of chemotherapy was very annoying and also it will take you to spend money. Some of my previous clients need to get an earlier reservation for the room that they will stay in and the bad news is if there is no available, better luck next time. If you’d assess them, you will finally see their overused veins and sometimes this veins were destroyed and changing their vital signs. When I took the blood pressure of this cancer patient, the korotkoff sounds was too weak and also the pulse of this client. Too many cut downs were made to some of cancer patients. That’s why my two hands were up to the great Elizabeth Edwards.

To all of the cancer patients here like Elizabeth Edwards, do not stop believing, keep on moving. Life is always a cycle and it always ends with death. The only problem you will undergo before you reach this death is you will decide to be happy or not. Do the best that you can. Do what you want to do. Do what you believe into. And someday, some other time, other will realize that has been the best among others. For those who were rich, please donate to the people in need especially cancer patients. God bless to all who keeps on giving and sharing others.

Last Remembrance - Batch 5

What a great experience with my colleagues. The event was so memorable with full of happiness. Each and everyone smiled all time long. Even though, half of our batch was absent. They were called as "KJ's" or kill joy because they believe that life is full of sacrifice and life is unfair. We swim all night, cook all night and drink all night. The water was so cold that's why some of us did not stay long. We also sang even we were not a singer (except for the one who was a member of a choir).

Remember the days that we were on the orientation? We were doing some jokes and listening to a non-energetic lecturer, also the lecturer who came from Visayas? Did you get it Bats(batch) five? That was so memorable then after that orientation, we were exposed to different wards with different headaches as well. As time goes on, we cannot focus on the time-span until it was December 10, 2010.

It was a blessed day. All of us will have a big problem after that volunteer program. Some will go being a customer service representative and some will rest for just a month. December month, meaning no hiring at all. Will someone help us here?

Batch 5 will stay as the best. We believe that we build the most memorable experience especially to the staff of that hospital by being friendly to them and most of all being professional. I hope this was the beginning of this remembrance so that it will not be the last one. Thanks to all of you

A 6 month volunteer nurse

After my 6 months of training in a tertiary hospital, I realize that life was always unfair. I am working 8 hours a day, sweating all day with no pay at all. I realize that I am serving the people and the country for free and with that I shall name myself as a martyr. Believe me I hated this one. I do not want to happen this again. After I studied for four years this was all I have. After I encountered too much viruses, bacterias and other pathogenic microorganism, I realize that being a volunteer should be stop all ready.

Yeah, I got professional and mastered skills right now. With the help of the hospital and of course me and this confidence that they are talking about. Now, with this experience I believe that I can become a staff nurse. I can do whatever it takes to become one. I have the qualities, abilities and attitude. I possessed the eleven core competencies in providing nursing standards. I would like to thank my hospital who accepts me to be there. Thank you!

In becoming a nurse, I asked myself right now. Why did I took this course? After my dad sponsored me for about half a million the prize was this. Too many registered nurses here at Philippines with no work at all. Some of them are working as Call boys or Call girls. In short, they are working as call center agents. Well, can you connect nursing to a customer care representative? I have studied microbiology, anatomy and physiology, chemistry, biochemistry and of course nursing subjects. Will I forget all of this just to earn P12,000 to P20,000 a month?

Honestly I do not want to leave Philippines. But because of the poverty I will do it. If I am the one who will answer the problem of family then why not? I am not the only one who is suffering here. Too many of my colleagues are also unemployed. There family invested half a million pesos just to pursue their sons/daughters as a nurse. But here in the Philippines, hospital will make money to the unemployed nurses using their trainings, volunteer experiences and others. The government does not want to take action on these one. I know that the supply of nurse here was too many or too bulky but the point is the government should help us take out of the country if there is no opportunity here. Well this profession is hopeless. So for all the student nurses out there from the Philippines, think thrice, not twice and goodluck to all of you.
