Introduction

P5 Being in a nursing home placement, there are many things that should be remembered and embraced. This is done through the care value base. There are at least five examples that have been used to protect the client/ service user. The five are: * Maintaining confidentiality of information * Promoting and supporting individual's right to dignity independence, choice and safety * Providing effective communication and relationships * Providing individualised care * Acknowledging peoples personal beliefs and identities. Maintaining confidentiality of information Being in a nursing home, there are many clients within that home with different conditions in terms of health and general well-being. However, having this kind of confidential knowledge comes with great responsibility. One responsibility would be trying to keep this or any other type of sensitive information about a client as private as possible.

Providing individualised care As far as one to ones with goes to, I did however was given the opportunity to wash and a dress a client who was recovering from a stroke. Which was a great opportunity which meant I had to use my effective communication that I had developed in my previouos placement and further it on with the client at hand. Acknowledging peoples personal beliefs and identities Letting the clients believing in what they did, makes them feel to be an individual. An issue however, did crop up where at some points where there were arguments between the clients themselves that there was a god and there was one. Having a client saying this, really discourages the acknowledgement of peoples personal beliefs and identities. Patrick O Hagan Mrs Wilson Infection, prevention & control ...read more.
