    Letter to the Editor

    Helping Hands is an organization in my church community which recognizes special needs of older adults and offers assistance. An older adult was referred to the organization two years after his sister with whom he lived died. He wanted to remain in their home but needed Meals on Wheels during the week with supplemental weekend meals to fill the gap. Helping Hands volunteers would bring a hot lunch and a cold sandwich plate for dinner, to cover nutritional needs for two meals. I volunteered for the weekend meals project for several years and through my relationship with this man slowly gained an insight into the window of loneliness.

    We each take care of thousands of patients over our life time in our role as a nurse. Some we will vividly remember but most we will likely not. There are simply too many faces, injections, nursing documentation notes, dressing changes, and IVs to recall them all. Those that do stick out, for whatever reason that may be, are ones we carry with us. I have recently buried my father. Very recently. Less than a month ago. He definitely is one patient who I will recall of course forever.

    Abstract: Student-faculty trust and related concept characteristics have been shown to be factors associated with successful student learning. The purpose of the proposed model is to present a conceptual framework supporting the complex relationships between students’ trust in faculty, the students’ mood states, and students’ educational performance and outcomes.
    Enhanced understanding and assessment of factors contributing to student success are needed by nurse educators to decrease student attrition and increase graduation rates for students participating in nursing education programs. Improved understanding of factors related to the successful education of nursing students would serve to relieve the existing and upcoming shortage of registered nurses.

    Abstract: Emergency department (ED) patients with delirium have an increased risk for mortality, length of stay, financial burden, decreased functional status, and need for long term care. The implementation of a delirium protocol can aide in early detection of delirium, appropriate treatments, which are expected to improve outcomes of patients with delirium who present to the ED. This article will discuss the background and significance of delirium and the processes taken to develop and implement an ED delirium treatment program as a quality improvement project.
