SOALAN TUGASAN

 

OBJEKTIF:

Tugasan ini adalah untuk menilai kemahiran analitikal pelajar dalam membincangkan isu berkaitan dengan peranan dan fungsi Jururawat Kecemasan sebagai barisan hadapan dalam mengendali pesakit berpotensi dijangkiti penyakit berjangkit semasa pandemik.

SINOPSIS:

Pertubuhan Kesihatan Sedunia (WHO) dan pihak berkuasa kesihatan awam di seluruh dunia, kini bertindak untuk menahan wabak COVID-19. Bagi pekerja penjagaan kesihatan, terutama bekerja sebagai barisan hadapan di jabatan kecemasan, pengenalpastian segera pesakit yang hadir ke tempat rawatan kecemasan dengan penyakit berpotensi menular akan membantu mengurangkan risiko pendedahan dan penularan penyakit kepada pesakit, pelawat, dan staf. Pusat Pengawalan dan Pencegahan Penyakit (CDC) mengesyorkan langkah berjaga-jaga yang tepat yang termaktub dalam protocol triaj untuk mengoptimumkan pengesanan awal penyakit ini bagi mengelakkan pendedahan yang tidak sepatutnya terhadap staf penjagaan kesihatan dan pesakit lain di tempat menunggu dan semasa pertemuan dengan pesakit (Persatuan Jururawat Kecemasan, 2018).
