The theory/model I chose is Betty Neuman’s healthcare systems model. When reading about the different theorists, Neuman’s theory I identified with the most. I appreciate Neuman’s respect for holistic patient care. Neuman defines nursing as “action which assists individuals, families and groups to maintain a maximum level of wellness, and the primary aim is stability of the patient/client system, through nursing interventions to reduce stressors’’ (Current Nursing, 2020). Neuman’s model focuses on the reduction of stressors to maximize patient wellness.

Critically ill patients require peace, quiet, and rest to help them heal. There is a ton of medical staff coming in and out of these patients’ rooms all day, resulting in no peace or rest whatsoever. I work the night shift, so whenever I can, I cluster as much as I can earlier on in the evening. This allows my patients to rest for longer, more consistent periods of time. Proper rest is one of the best ways to help let the body heal, and without this, patients are looking at longer and more difficult recovery times. Neuman developed her nursing lens to encompass caring for her clients as persons situated in their environments and taking into consideration not only their physical well-being but also their mental well-being (Montano, 2020).

I often see “ICU delirium” develop in our patients. This happens from a large mixture of things, such as being NPO for extended periods of time, medications that can cause insomnia and confusion, and lack of rest, quiet, and peace can all lead to “ICU delirium.” It is important for us as nurses to identify the development of delirium early and prevent it. One of the best ways of prevention I have found so far is proper rest in a peaceful environment.

Jean Waston, a nursing theorist, focused her theory on human caring. Over time, her approach developed into Watson’s Caring Science and Human Caring Theory. This theory focuses on a philosophical foundation that embraces the whole person, which includes the unity of mind, body, and spirit as one in relation to the individual environment (Watson, 2023). This theory fits my values in my nursing practice since I like to build relationships and rapport with each of my patients. I think that it is essential to communicate with your patients about things outside of the medical world. I often ask about their family or hobbies. It’s a way to get their mind off what’s going on medically. By doing this, patients open up and trust me more when I share my hobbies or information about myself. Many of my patients have pets like I do, so I take the extra time to talk about their pets. This not only builds trust but offers a window into their home life.

An example was when I was treating an older patient; I could tell they were deep in thought and very frustrated. The patient was rude to the care tech assigned to them, so I wanted to understand what the patient was going through. Through communicating, I understood that the patient’s brother had passed away, and their hospital stay interfered with plans to attend the funeral. With the help of the dayshift nurse and social worker, we set up a Zoom call from a laptop so the patient could still participate in their brother’s funeral while in the hospital. The patient’s gratitude for this was immense, and their trust in the staff grew. My job is about helping wherever I can to help my patients achieve better health.

Another example would be when a patient had an extended hospital stay and couldn’t find anyone to care for their dog. Again, with our social worker’s help, it was arranged for animal control to pick up the dog and hold it at their facility until the patient was discharged. This relieved the stress placed on the patient, knowing that their pet would be well cared after. By eliminating that extra stress, the patient could focus on achieving better health so they could be discharged and reunited with their pet. Again helping others is the role of a nurse, and it’s also in HCA’s mission statement. Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life. Having a trustworthy relationship with your patients is part of improving human life, and communication with them can give the nurse so much information and insight into their patient’s life, allowing us to tailor their care.
