ursing Concept Reflection on Catherine Mcauley: Catherine McAuley is a legendary nursing philosopher, who promoted the act of caregiving practices. The main concept deployed and endorsed by Catherine in the caregiving practice was fostering safety and comfort. Providing comfort and safety was best reflecte-d in the provision of food, shelter, and resources to the poor. McAuley vigorously dedicated her wealth to providing basic necessities to the poor as a preventive measure to health hazards. It is recorde-d that the legendary lady, use-d her wealth to create a big house that to shelter the poor, especially orphane-d children, and looke-d after their health.
The nursing concept of fostering safety and comfort is further witnesse-d in the international intervention of Catherine. Global intervention in this case particularly refers to the constant travels by the sisters of mercy to areas covered with poverty. Generally, poverty is directly related to poor health, hence the group moved to such areas with the aim of providing some comfort to promote healthcare safety. In summary, the concept of improving the public’s lifestyle’ especially the poor, was the primary objective. Technically, improving the living conditions directly relate to the concept of fostering safety and safety.
A similar nursing concept is being practice-d today, but with the title provision of safety and comfort. In specifics, nurses work tirelessly in providing a comfortable environment for the patients. A comfortable environment refers, to clean; beddings, rooms, and equipment. The cleanliness of the environment highly creates better chances for patient recovery hence safety is instituted (Reflection on Catherine Mcauley). Quality bed spacing, constant patient monitoring, and drug stocking collectively aid in providing comfort to patients. With physical comfort, the recovery of the patient’s health follows, hence promoting the existence of a healthier society.
