Question:

Background As you approach a life-long journey of continuing professional development and professional currency, it is important for you as transitioning registered nurses and registered midwives to reflect on how far you have come and what your new graduate year may look like. Understanding what factors may influence your transition, what strategies you may use to enhance your transition and the types of resources available for you to access to facilitate your individual transition to practice, will help you evaluate, reflect and set personal goals as you enter your new career.

Alm of assessment

The aim of this assessment provides students with an opportunity to critically analyse and discuss the relationship between the theoretical construct of 'being a professional nurse or midwife' and the transition to graduate practice.

Details

Write an essay based on the case study provided exploring the different elements that inform your preparation for transition to professional practice. Based on current theoretical perspectives, analyse the case study and explain the importance of managing clinical and non-clinical skills essential for new graduate nurses or new graduate midwives to address in readiness for meeting professional responsibilities as capable practitioners in nursing and midwifery. You must also reflect on your own preparedness for practice as a new graduate nurse or new graduate midwife, taking into consideration your own values and personal goals as you enter the health workforce. 

Nursing Case Study

On 5 January 2013, Patient A, who was 81 years old, presented to a GP clinic complaining of two nights of breathlessness when lying flat and shortness of breath. On examination, Patient A was found to have fine creps at the base of both lungs and slightly elevated jugular venous pressure. Her renal function was normal. She was commenced on oral Lasix and was recommended to have a clinical review two days later.

On 6 January 2013, Patient A attended a local (rural) hospital again with shortness of breath. Patient A was admitted to hospital as the oral Lasix had not improved her symptoms.

On 9 January 2013, Patient A reported dizziness. This coincided with an atrial fibrillation (AF) rate of 120/ min. The VMO was called to review Patient A. Patient A was refusing food and liquid at this time and was complaining of feeling very weak and having abdominal pain.

At 0830 hours on 10 January 2013, the VMO again assessed Patient A. He concluded that Patient A was depressed and anxious. He encouraged nursing staff to mobilise Patient A. The nursing notes that follow the VMO attendance refer to discharge planning at 1021 hours, and then, at 1315 hours, comment that Patient A felt unwell, had refused breakfast and lunch, had no energy and required encouragement to mobilise. Patient A's respiratory rate was recorded as 28-30/ minute, but other vital signs were within normal limits.

At 1820 hours, the progress notes state that Patient A refused to tolerate her dinner. At 1910 hours, Patient A was observed to have a respiratory rate of 40/min and she was tachycardic at 122/min. At 1930 hours, Patient A was documented as feeling "woozy", her skin was cold and clammy and she was complaining of severe back pain. Her BSL was 16.1mmmol/I. An ECG was conducted, which showed a heart rate of 168/min. The VMO was again called. He stated that Patient A should be administered Digoxin and Valium. At 2110 hours, showing Patient A's respiratory rate was still at 40/min.

At 0530 hours on 11 January 2013, nursing notes state that Patient A was unable to void, was pale and grey, and had clammy skin and nausea. At 0830 hours on 11 January 2013, the VMO assessed Patient A and wrote "?Significant medical illness". An abdominal x ray and pathology were ordered. The VMO returned at 1330 hours and noted that Patient A "won't/ can't mobilise [because of] pain in back and abdo" and that her white cell count had risen to 17.5, despite an absence of fever. A urinary tract infection was subsequently diagnosed and intravenous antibiotics were commenced at approximately 1430 hours.

Registered Nurse (RN) John* commenced his afternoon shift as the nurse in charge at 1430 hours on 11 January 2013. He read Patient A's progress notes at approximately 1445 hours. RN John was immediately concerned about Patient A's condition.

At approximately 1720 hours, Patient A reported to nursing staff that she was feeling dizzy and had abdominal pain (8/10). She was observed to have a respiratory rate of 40-44/min, very low blood pressure of 89/53 and a heart rate of 88.

Shortly before 1810 hours, RN John was advised of Patient A's condition by an enrolled nurse. RN John said he would have Patient A reviewed once the locum arrived. At around 1810 hours, Patient A had continual diarrhoea. RN John again stated that Patient A would be reviewed when the locum arrived. RN John did assess Patient A, but did not document the observations.

At approximately 1910 hours, RN John arranged for a further ECG to be undertaken for Patient A.

At approximately 2020 hours, RN John telephoned the Clinical Nurse Manager, Ms Sophie Smith*, to arrange for medication to be obtained from the drug safe (for a patient other than Patient A). At approximately 2030 hours, Ms Smith attended the hospital and signed for the medication. RN John did not raise any issues concerning Patient A with Ms Smith at this time.

At approximately 2100 hours, RN John and another registered nurse completed an ISBAR (Introduction Situation Background Assessment Recommendation) form. In that form, the respondent described Patient A as "deteriorating", and recommended that Patient A's condition be reviewed "ASAP''. He also stated that Patient A's family had been contacted.

The VMO, arrived at 2200 hours. By this time, Patient A was critically unwell. The emergency on-call doctor, Dr Aboud*, arrived at approximately 2300 hours and inserted a large bore IV cannula to treat Patient A's severe dehydration. Over the course of the night, attempts were made to transport Patient A to referral hospital. The ability to transfer Patient A was significantly complicated by Patient A's critical condition. Tragically, Patient A died whilst she was being assessed by the air evacuation team the following morning. The primary cause of death was stated to be septicaemia
