If sure their belongings are labelled; they take

If a patient
is experiencing mental health conditions such as depression, for example, they
may have low mood, feel helpless, increased tiredness, lack motivation and feel
irritable. They may also not want to interact with family members or carers. As
a Clinical Support Worker, I can talk to them and try and get them to open up
about how they feel and express their worries. I can also listen attentively to
their concerns and offer support. I can also contact or view information from
organisations like the ‘Depression Alliance’ or ‘Mind’ that can be of great
help to my patient. I can also discuss whether or not the patient will benefit
from cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) with a senior member of staff.

If a patient suffers from dementia, they can feel confused, scared and
irritated. They may also misplace their belongings, feel unsure of their
surroundings and forget details; it is easy for patients with dementia to get
lost in the hospital. To help dementia patients, I could ask simple questions,
break down information into small steps which they can better absorb and listen
to their concerns. I could ask colleagues to support me if any challenging
behaviour is displayed. As they have a tendency to wander around, I could make
sure there are no trip or fall hazards near their bed. I can also contact the
hospitals RAID team which is made up of staff that deal with mental health. To
better their experience, I can also ask their friends or family members to fill
out a ‘This is me’ leaflet which is like a fact file about the person with
dementia, it also states their likes and dislikes, hobbies etc. I could also
make sure their belongings are labelled; they take their medication on time and
help them during meal times.

If patients
have learning difficulties they may need extra support, lack self-awareness or
may have problems communicating their needs verbally which could result in them
feeling frustrated. To help such patients I could use visual aids, hearing or
speech aids and make sure they are not isolated. I can also help them develop
the skills they already have to help them become more independent.
