The disease is a mosquito-borne illness. The rate of infection is typically high in the rainy season. The mortality rate in 2023 is greater than in 2022. Dengue hemorrhagic fever affects individuals of all ages, with children aged 5-14 particularly at risk. The purposes of this study are to identify the progress of the disease and monitor significant changes in symptoms in the critical phase. This study featured a patient who experienced hypovolemic shock from plasma leakage, a complication that can be life-threatening. The patients can be aided in recovering from the critical phase by accurate and prompt application of the nursing process in assessment, diagnosis, nursing care plans, and nursing outcomes.</p> <p>In this case study, the patient had been treated in the pediatric inpatient department of Bangplee Hospital. Dengue hemorrhagic fever was diagnosed by the physician. In the critical phase, the patient had hypovolemic shock, coagulopathy, electrolyte imbalance, and plasma leakage as indicated by the presence of pleural fluid. Because of the severity of the disease, the fatality rate increased. Thus, nurses have an important role in close observation of changing symptoms, prompt reporting to the doctor, stringent monitoring of intravenous fluid management, and providing information on medical treatment. These are extremely important and help patients and their families reduce their anxieties and collaborate with medical treatment until the patient fully recovers from the crisis. Holistic care should be provided including physical, psychological, emotional, and social dimensions. </p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Samutprakan Hospital Journal (SMPK HOS J) How could nurses empower patients to continue antiviral medications? 2023-05-18T22:45:18+07:00 Nattapong Chanmala Sumalee Seesuan Metta Klangsin Sawitree Sripakdee Jatuporn Lertanunsit Areewan Oumtanee <p>Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a sexually transmitted infection that is a global public health concern. The mortality rate has been increasing every year. It is caused by an opportunistic infection resulting from discontinuation of antiretroviral therapy. Therefore, HIV patients should practice taking antiretroviral drugs continuously, which is an important health behavior to be effective treatment and reduce the occurrence of complications.</p> <p>HIV patients are a vulnerable group that should be supported, empower the mind, and reinforce positivity. Therefore, nurses play an important role in building health empowerment so that patients are aware of the problems and obstacles. Furthermore, nurses can generate self-confidence, self-control, and self-worth for solving problems and making informed decisions for the good health of HIV patients. Appropriate changes in health behaviors can lead to improved quality of life and well-being. Therefore, this article has gathered information about the meaning and definition of health empowerment, including the role of nurses in health empowerment and applying the concept of continuous antiretroviral therapy to HIV patients.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Samutprakan Hospital Journal (SMPK HOS J) Supply Chain Management Model in Samutprakan Hospital : Analysis and Development 2023-08-05T15:31:50+07:00 Arpiradee Karaket <p><strong> </strong>This analytical review aims to 1) study the situation of supply chain management for material procurement and inventory management 2) develop the supply chain process using the Supply Chain Operating Reference (SCOR) model and 3) evaluate the supply chain process using the SCOR model for material procurement and inventory management. The process of planning, procuring of materials, managing of inventory and delivering were evaluated for improving the services delivered to all patients and recipients.</p> <p> The results found that 1) there were the problems of the supply chain management situation in three areas, consisting of management, personnel, and services. 2) the supply chain (SCOR Model) development was applied to all material procurement and inventory management processes 3) the supply chain (SCOR Model) development was evaluated after applying, and the results were summarized as problems in 3 areas, consisting of management, personnel, and service.</p> <p> In conclusion, a supply chain management policy using the SCOR model development for material procurement and inventory management could reduce the administrative burden in the issues of adequacy. Furthermore, the new policy reduces costs, diminishes redundant work, value for money and increases the level of satisfaction of the services.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Samutprakan Hospital Journal (SMPK HOS J) Results from the Development of Sterilization Medical Equipment Supply System in Samutprakan Hospital 2023-10-07T23:34:27+07:00 Wannee Wuttikate Mananya Dittasagul Hataikan Pantong <p>This study aims to develop and evaluate the sterile equipment disbursement system in the Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD) at Samutprakarn Hospital. The satisfaction of both service providers and recipients as well as the risks involving the sterile equipment disbursement systems were assessed. There are 2 groups of samples, which were specifically randomized. The first group was CSSD officers who had been working for more than 6 months. The second group was 20 people and staff who have used the sterile equipment disbursement system for more than 6 months. Eighty-four participants were included in the study. The sterile equipment disbursement systems, the Questionnaire, and the sterile disbursement service record form were used as the tools and were validated for confidence by the entire Kronbach alpha coefficient of 0.920.</p> <p>The results found that the most common disbursement problem was the dispensing of sterile devices in time for patient treatment. Therefore, the reimbursement of sterile equipment has been applied and the satisfaction of system users was assessed. The satisfaction of service users was high [providers <img title="\bar{x}" src="\fn_cm&amp;space;\bar{x}" />=4.21 (S.D.=0.512), customer <img title="\bar{x}" src="\fn_cm&amp;space;\bar{x}" />=4.27 (S.D.=0.576)]. The incidence of risk of not being able to send equipment to service recipients in time for patient treatment decreased from 29 times in 2020 to only one time in 2023.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Samutprakan Hospital Journal (SMPK HOS J) Effectiveness of the Transitional Period Preparation through Line Application for Self-Health Care Behavior of the Primipara Mother and Newborn Baby in Samutprakan Hospital 2023-08-17T21:33:55+07:00 Wanpen Phetcharak Chonthicha Phungcham Wimonrat Neititumwattana <p>This quasi-experimental research aims to develop the preparation of the transitional period through line application, accessing the knowledge of self-healthcare behavior of postpartum mothers and newborn babies.
