Fake a Well-Rested Look

January 1, 2015 Category :Nursing Schools 0

Let’s face it, with all the deadlines that we have to beat and projects that we need to finish, sleep has already transformed into a luxury that we cannot afford. But for renowned beaty blogger Lee Shen Gee, if you can’t make it, fake it!

Here are four simple rules to fake that well-rested look.

1. Drink water, lots of them. Studies claim that water helps in flushing out or removing harmful toxins in the body and could also improve digestion, absroption, circulation and excretion. As for the skin, adequate water intake prevents dry skin, keeps the skin hyrated and matains its elasticity and suppleness. It could also give the skin a radiant, healthy and youner looking complexion devoid of wrinkles.

2. An apple a day keeps your skin aglow. Way back in college, Lee Shen Gee used to chow one apple a day because swhe believes that it provides her the boost of enerygy that she needs. She also advises that if you canot have enough sleep, at least eat a balanced diet and never miss a meal, specially breakfast.

St. Luke’s Hospital School of Nursing, the predecessor of the St. Luke’s College of Nursing, is one of the oldest nursing schools in our country. It was established in 1907, soon after the founding of St. Luke’s Hospital which was then known as University Hospital in honor of some leading universities of the United States which helped finance the construction of the building. Upon the decision to elevate the School of Nursing into a College of Nursing, the Board of Trustees decided to keep the name of St. Luke’s and to name the College of Nursing, St. Luke’s College of Nursing. St. Luke’s College of Nursing is one of the best schools of nursing in the country today, having St. Luke’s Medical Center as the base hospital. It is located along E. Rodriguez Ave., Cathedral Heights, Quezon City.

Focus on Patient Confidentiality

December 4, 2014 Category :Nursing Schools 1

Patient confidentiality is the right of an individual patient to have his/ her medical and personal information/ data kept private or not disclosed without one’s specific consent or permission. This information is usually only available only to healthcare provider/ physician or insurance. This right is also protected by law thus, a violation of patient confidentiality could lead to court litigation.  Patient confidentiality is extension of the right to privacy of an individual aimed to protect one’s personal records and data to others, who may use such data to their advantage or to the inconvenience of the person.  This is especially important in our modern information age where electronic data are easily retrievable, transferable and disseminated.

Patient confidentiality is maintained when researchers use the medical information of a person for case or research studies without divulging identity of the patient or revealing any other data that could provide  clues that can trace identity of the patient.   Confidentiality is breached if patients identity is revealed or traced.

The biggest threat to medical privacy happens when claiming insurance because health records of a patient become accessible not only to physicians but insurance companies employees and other institutions especially if said claim undergoes legal contest.

Most companies simply hire a healthcare professional, sometimes a regular nurse and sometimes a doctor paid on a retainer’s basis in order to comply to the Occupational Safety and Health provisions of the labor code.  However, it must be noted that those health workers working for occupational safety should not be ordinary physicians or ordinary nurses. They should be health care professionals who specialize in “Industrial and Occupational Medicine” , which is also mandated by law.

In the call center industry, Industrial and Occupational Medicine health workers focus on certain health issues that especially pertain to the industry.   At the moment, there are three major medical needs that call center employees often face that Occupational health workers in the industry must focus to. First is the need for health workers to focus on sleep medicine, which  is mainly attributable to the night shiftwork of employees.  The changing work schedules of employees post health risks as it results to irregular sleeping habits of employees.  For instance, research studies show that females with erratic sleeping habits are susceptible to breast cancer.  For the rest of the employees, erratic schedules can result to sleep deprivation which makes an individual anemic, one’s immune system weaker and vulnerable to different illnesses and diseases.
