Patient Rights and Responsibilities
At the time of admission to the hospital, all patients or in the case of minors the patients’
guardians are provided a copy of the Patients’ Rights and Responsibilities. As a student to MU
Health Care, you are to know and understand these rights. As patients have the right to
considerate and respectful care regardless of race, creed, national origin, age, sex, or source of
payment for care. They have a right to confidentiality and personal privacy. They have a right to
clear explanation of hospital rules and regulations as well as information concerning their
diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of their disease process. As a student health care provider you
are to know and understand these and all other rights of the patient.
VI.
Cultural Diversity
MU Health Care believes with today’s diversity in our hospitals and clinics there is a need for
cultural Competency in Health Care. According to Purnell’s Guide, culture is defined as the
totality of socially transmitted behavioral patterns, beliefs, values, customs, lifeways, arts and all
other products of human work and thought characteristics of a population of people that guide
their worldview and decision-making. It is learned first in the family, then in school, then in the
community and other social organizations. Culture is largely unconscious and has powerful
influences on health and illness. Health-care providers must recognize, respect, and integrate,
clients’ cultural beliefs and practices into health-care recommendation to eliminate health-care
differences and provide patient satisfaction.
MUHC provides Purnell’s Guide to Cultural Competency. It can be located at
https://itsweb.uhm.edu/nursing_standards.

X.
Infection Control
As a health care provider you are at risk of exposure to communicable diseases. Please review the
below information to assist with protection of self and patients from infection and the spread of
diseases.
•
•
Hand Hygiene is the single most important thing a healthcare provider can do to prevent the
spread of infections. Hand hygiene compliance is monitored at MU Health Systems.
Everyone who has contact with our patients is expected to perform good hand hygiene.
Contact Transmission is the most common way germs spread from person to person in a
hospital. Some pathogens may also spread via the airborne (through the air) route. To
decrease transmission of infection you should:
• Avoid contact with any moist body substances.
• Wear personal protective equipment such as gloves, goggles, gowns and mask whenever
there is a reasonable chance of coming into contact with moist body substances.
5
Proper hand washing technique includes these steps:
• Use a sink with warm running water, soap, and paper towels;
• Push sleeves up above wrists;
• Apply soap to the hands and wash the hands vigorously using plenty of lather and friction
for 10 or more seconds; interlace fingers and rub palms and then back of hands in a
circular motion; clean between fingers and vigorously clean the fingertips and nail beds;
• Rinse hands and wrists thoroughly, keeping hands down and elbows up.
• Dry hands thoroughly from the fingers down to the forearms and wrists with a paper
towel;
• If available, use a clean paper towel to turn off water.
Hands should be washed:
• Before and after patient contact
• When going from dirty to clean
• Immediately after soiled with moist body substances
• Before and after eating
• After using the restroom
Proper use of Hand Sanitizer:
• Apply a small amount to palm of one hand
• Rub hands together covering all surfaces until totally dry
• NOT to be used if hands are soiled with moist body substances
Fingernails:
• Fingernails shall be clean and trimmed
• Artificial nails, nail art or nail piercings are NOT to be worn by students or any
healthcare worker who has patient contact.
Speak Up Campaign:
It is okay to remind a fellow nursing student to use hand hygiene
Respiratory Etiquette:
• It is proper to sneeze into your covered sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
• If one has a clean tissue available it is appropriate to sneeze or cough into the tissue,
dispose of the tissue, immediately wash hands.
Hospital Lotions:
MU Health Systems provide hand lotions to healthcare workers who have direct contact with
patients. No one is to bring hand lotions from home for personal use. They may have
properties that can break down gloves. Lotions from home may interfere with chlorhexidine
skin prep. These lotions lack properties to prevent bacterial growth in the lotion.
When additional protective measures are required:
The patient’s room will be marked with a caution sign. The special instructions indicated
with a ; on the card are to be followed each time anyone enters the room. Hands are to be
washed or sanitized after removal of protective apparel. When there is a red stop sign on the
door, a mask should be worn to enter the room.
Sharps Handling and Disposal:
All sharps must be disposed of in a closable, puncture-resistant container that is red or labeled
with a biohazard symbol. It must be leak-proof on the sides and bottom. If you discover a
sharps container ¾ full, it must be replaced so it is not overfilled. Please notify housekeeping
to change the container.
XI.
Visitors
Visitors are defined as family members, friends and religious advisors whom the patients elect to
receive. In general, visiting hours are 9:00am to 9:00pm. Some exceptions apply to general
pediatrics, PICU and the Adult ICUs. Please check with your specific unit to ensure you
understand any specific visitation hours. Only two visitors are permitted at the bedside at one
time. Children under 13 will be allowed to visit with permission of the patient’s nurse and must
be accompanied by an adult at all time.
6
XII.
Valuables
Since you will not be assigned a secure place for valuables during your clinical practice, we
suggest you leave valuables at home. The hospitals cannot assume responsibility for any personal
property.
Personal phone calls are not allowed during clinical hours. Emergency phone calls can be
received at the nurses’ station only in emergency situations. Text messaging and other cellular
phone usage is prohibited.
XIII.
Incidents/Occurrences
• An incident/occurrence is defined as any happening that is not consistent with the routine care
of a particular patient or an event that is not consistent with the normal operations of a
particular organization. Students should demonstrate a willingness to report all events
including those that involve medication errors, falls, and equipment failures as well as visitor
occurrences.
• When a student is involved in an event that either did or potentially could have resulted in
injury or loss, the student needs to report to his/her clinical instructor. When the clinical
instructor is not available report to the charge nurse or house manager. When there is need of
assistance, the student will be sent to the Emergency Center.

XV.
Medication Administration and Documentation (Nursing students)
• Nursing students are NOT allowed to remove medications from Pyxis.
• Nursing students can administer medication under the direct supervision of their clinical
faculty or supervising nurse, but documentation on eMAR must be done by the clinical
faculty or supervising nurse.
• Senior Practicum Students can administer medications under the direct supervision of their
preceptor, but documentation is done by the preceptor.
Confidentiality
• Do not open a patient’s chart unless you are caring for that patient.
• When you open a patient chart your name is stamped on the chart with the date and time
you entered the patient’s chart.
• The Compliance Office audits charts to find out who is entering them and whether it is
appropriate access.
Opening a Patient Chart
• Open your patient’s chart from the location list. This is a best practice to ensure that you
are documenting on the correct patient and the correct visit.
• Always double check the patient banner bar to make sure you have the correct patient
(e.g. name, age, sex, etc.) and the correct visit (e.g. inpatient and date of admission)
• If your patient is discharged and you use the Patient Search feature to find them, always
select the correct patient in the top panel and always select the correct encounter or visit
from the bottom panel. If you don’t select the correct visit your documentation can go on
the wrong visit.
Documentation
• Remember: Your documentation is a permanent part of the patient’s medical record and
the patient’s care. It is important for the information to be charted accurately and in a
timely manner. Other clinicians (e.g. physician and nurses, etc.) are relying on your
accurate and timely documentation.
• Follow the lead of your clinical instructor. Documentation expectations will be different
depending on the unit.
• If you don’t know something, ASK. Your clinical instructor or one of the staff nurses are
your best resources. This will help you avoid documentation mistakes.
• Yellow boxes are required fields. Make sure you answer correctly on all documentation
but pay close attention to required documentation. For example, there is a question on I
View about whether the patient is on PD. PD means Peritoneal Dialysis. If you answer
“yes” to this question, it triggers a whole chain of events to happen for the Pharmacy and
Nursing.
• Always look at the date and time field first on your Powerform and change them as
needed. This is very easy to overlook. It is important to document the correct date and
time the event occurred (e.g. when you did the head to toe exam).
• If you are using I View always create an accurate date and time column for your
documentation.
• Always open a new Powerform from Ad hoc charting if you are documenting a new
event that took place at a new time. Only modify a Powerform if you need to change
something or you did not get finished documenting at that point in time.
8
Closing the Patient’s Chart
• Make sure to close the patient’s chart first and then either select Change User or Exit
PowerChart when you walk away from the computer. This simple act will prevent
someone from accidentally charting under your name and protects patient
confidentiality. If you forget to close the patient’s chart and you select Change User, the
next person to log on will be asked to “Assign a Relationship” with the patient you had
open. If this happens to you, then you need to click Cancel. If you click Cancel on the
Assign a Relationship window, it will allow PowerChart to open but will not stamp your
name on the patient’s chart. It will just open to your organizer instead.
XVI.
Abbreviations
In order to ensure patient safety, MU Health System had developed a list of approved medical
abbreviations. Only hospital-approved abbreviations are allowed in any documentation. If you are
not sure, check the approved list, which can be accessed online at: https://myapps.umh.edu
XVII.
Patient Identification Bands
• All hospital inpatients will be identified by means of a plastic band containing the patient’s
full name, medical record number, visit number (VN), date of birth and physician.
• Before placing the identification band on a patient, staff will ask the patient their name, date
of birth, and compare the answer with the medical record.
• If the patient is unable to comprehend or respond to the question, a responsible party with the
patient may identify the patient.
• If no responsible party is present, the process used in Emergency Department for registration
of unknown persons will be used.
• Should it become necessary to remove the identification band from the original site, the
person removing the band will be responsible for immediately replacing the band, or
relocating it as necessary.
• If unable to place the band on an extremity, the bands may be placed on the urinary catheter.
• The following colors will be used to indicate the following identifiers or alerts
♦ Red—Allergies
ƒ All patients will have an allergy band
ƒ The allergy band will have one of the following indications
o No Known Allergies
o A hand written list of known allergies
♦ Yellow—Falls Risk
♦ Purple—Do Not Attempt Resuscitation
♦ Blue—Limitations of Treatment
♦ Pink—Limb Alert
ƒ This band it to be placed on the extremity that is not to be used for blood draws,
blood pressures, other indications.
XVIII. Two patient Identifiers
All patients receiving any test, special procedures, or medications must first be identified properly.
The two identifiers used throughout the MU Heath Care System are:
1. Patient Name
2. Patient Date of Birth
Ideally the patient will be able to state his or her Name and Date of Birth, which must match
that of the patient’s arm band.
XIX.
Infant Patients Basic information :
• The Family Birthing center is a locked unit with swipe access given only to approved
employees.
• Electronic tags are placed on each infant in the Well Baby Nursery that locks down the doors
and elevators if the infant gets too close,
• Infants may be given over to the mother or father only after the nurse has checked both the
baby and the mother’s / father’s ID bands to ensure they match.
• When infants are removed from the mother’s room, the infant must be in its crib.
• Babies with the same last names will have a name alert on their crib.
9
XX.

active communication and teamwork for:
¾ All Patients
