Laparoscopic Nurse

December 7, 2015 Category :All About Nursing| Nursing Articles 0

Laparoscopic comes from two Greek words. Lapara means “soft parts of the body between the rib margins and the hips”.  Skopein means “to see or view or examine”.  Laparoscopy is a kind of surgical procedure which a small incision is made, usually in the navel, through which a viewing tube is inserted.  It has a small camera on the eyepiece which allows the Doctor to examine the abdominal and the pelvic organs on a video monitor which connected to the tube.

A Laparoscopic Nurse Practitioner is a nurse that specifically handles patients that undergo Laparoscopic surgery acting as the principal assistant during the surgery per se under the management and direction of the Laparoscopic surgeon and specializes in the comprehensive care of these types of patients.

A Laparoscopic Nurse also have administrative functions from admission, evaluation, initial operative care and the control of pain of patients undergoing Laparoscopic surgery.  Admission pertains to the acquisition of background information of the patients. Evaluation refers to the assessment of patients to check their suitability and capability to undergo surgery per the established protocols of the hospital. This is important to reduce the need for the patient to stay and wait for one’s turn for the surgery.  Consequently, the nurse should proactively instigate and coordinate the release planning of a patient before admission. With these functions, the nurse should establish and maintain constant open communications and relationships with all ward staff and specialized teams created to conduct surgery for specific patients.  He/ she should also coordinate and arrange the nursing care plan with patients and effectively relay the said plan as well as the policies to the concerned families. Because the nurse must always maintain contact with patients and families, he/ she must maintain accessible service during the duration of the patient’s stay for the patient care, education, pain and wound control and provision of immediate response to any complaint from the patient and his family.  As part of continuing healthcare service, the nurse is also tasked to conduct follow up on patient’s condition as needed or instructed by the surgeon.  Meanwhile, quality care monitoring should be conducted by preparation and provision of regular reports which should be constantly collaborated with medical and nursing teams.
