A family is a set of interacting individuals related by blood, marriage, cohabitation, or adoption who interdependently perform relevant functions by fulfilling expected roles. Health practices are those activities performed by individuals or families as a whole to promote health and prevent diseases. The relationship between members of family influences the understanding of behavior, which is demonstrated in family’s structural, functional, communicational, and developmental patterns (American Academy of Pediatrics, 2003; Bonell et al., 2003).Within families, children and adults are nurtured and taught about health values by

Also significant in the assessment, the patient does not have his family living in the same city as he. Health care workers can support this barrier by allowing the patient to make phone calls to reach out to his family and update them on any health status. The

Throughout the years the role of the school nurse has evolved into one of leadership and management along with many other duties including traditional roles as mentioned above. The services provided by a school nurse range from assessment and screening to coordinating care for regular students as well as students with special needs.

In reviewing this case study, it is the writer’s opinion that poor communication between doctors treating this patient, limited patient assessment, provider bias/judgment, and inferior diagnostic procedures contributed to this adverse event.
Ongoing, clear, open, and transparent communication between physicians seeing the same patient is critical since this can reduce medical errors, improve quality of care, and increase patient safety (Institute of Medicine, 2000). In this case study, no type of formal or informal
