Professional Nursing Organization

A 45-year-old woman presented with a swelling and pain right next to the opening of the vagina. Lab tests showed the swelling of Bartholin gland. The patient was scheduled for surgery to relieve the pain. During the surgical safety checklist, we realized the site for surgery was unmarked. We tried to stop the surgeon to halt the procedure until the site is marked but did not listen. Despite using the surgical safety checklist, the surgeon deemed “surgery site marked” not applicable. The correct side was written on the consent form but the physician never checked the form. With the patient under analgesia and deep sleep the physician proceeded and performed surgery on the wrong side. We tried to get support from the anesthesiologist or supervisor in vain. We felt hopeless because the management ignored our call to stop this physician. What is the purpose of having a consent form or safe checklist when it is not followed to the letter? Personally, I felt helpless as a patient advocate to defend the rights of this patient and family.   

            To improve public image of nursing profession, Buresh and Gordon (2013) call upon nurses to find their voices and to bring their voice to n areas where parents cannot speak for themselves. Unfortunately, study shows that only a handful of non-supervisory nurses talk when they have concerns associated with disrespect, incompetence and dangerous short cuts. To improve their public image, nurses need to effectively communicate and clarify their importance of their profession. They must face stereotypes present in society and educate masses about direct relationship between the nurse and patient satisfaction. The public health department must inform the public especially media of constructive nursing events and developments. They need to reach and use media to publicize their image. Buresh and Gordon (2013) also propose that nurses require new front-stage presentation to market their improved image.
