Scenario 1
You are commencing your evening shift as a Graduate Registered Nurse in an Aged Care Facility. You have just received patient handover from the morning shift. One of your patients, Mr William Taylor, is an elderly man aged 86 who has had a fall on the way to the toilet and has sustained a serious fracture. He is presently moaning and being prepared for transfer to hospital. As you approach the family to introduce yourself, you are confronted with a very unhappy and angry family. One of the family stands very close to you, and in a loud voice says:
“What’s going on with my Dad? We received a phone call saying Dad has been seriously hurt and needs to go to hospital and then we are left sitting here for hours with no information from anyone! What is going on?”
In the clinical handover from the nursing staff, you did not receive any information about any family members present in the waiting room of the aged care facility.
Scenario 2
You are on clinical placement in an aged care facility as a first year nursing student. The Assistant in Nursing (AIN) you are buddied with today has left you alone with a 92 year old female, Mrs Claudia Munroe with vascular dementia and has requested that you attend to her shower. As you are completing the shower the elderly lady begins to shout. The AIN comes into the bathroom and challenges your technique washing. The AIN states:
“You’ve got it all wrong; just stop what you’re doing! You are making her feel scared”.
The nurse then comments:
“Having a student is such a pain and I really don’t have time to deal with your incompetence!”
The AIN then leaves you alone in the bathroom with the patient, who is now crying and shouting incoherently. The patient has also grabbed the shower nozzle out of your hand, showering you with water. You try to calm the patient down, complete the shower and dress the patient. Once you have settled your patient back to bed, you leave their room. You then try to find the AIN to discuss what has just happened.The 1200-word essay (+- 10%) Please structure the essayin the following way:Introduction (150 words): State the chosen scenario and the concepts and framework you will use in your essay.
