Review the case study below and answer the questions

Savannah, a registered nurse in charge of direct patient care, attended a party the night before a scheduled 12-hour work day, overindulged in cocktails, went to bed around 3 a.m., and came to work the next morning at 6:45 a.m. with a hangover and alcohol still on her breath.

This situation placed Savannah in ethical violation of the organization’s values and the American Nurses Association (ANA) Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements (2015), as well as a legal violation of the state board of nursing. If alcohol is on a person’s breath, it is still in the bloodstream, which could alter Savannah’s judgment in patient care and result in unsafe patient care and treatments.

• Discuss the ethical implications of Savannah’s partying before work. Please explain your rationale.

• Explore specific ethical violations in Savannah’s case in terms of her personal behavior, the hospital’s ethics and values, patient safety, the ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements, and the state board of nursing.

• Can you think of other options that Savannah should consider other than going to work with an altered state of mind? Make a list of the pros and cons of at least two other alternatives Savannah could have chosen.

• Describe and justify how you would have handled this situation had you been Savannah. Justify your strategies by using an ethical framework: theory, approach, or principle.

• Do you believe the nursing supervisor should take action against Savannah? Why or why not? If you believe the supervisor should take action against Savannah, describe the specific options for disciplinary action based on your general knowledge of institutional and state board of nursing disciplinary protocols. For this answer, you could search the Web for general institutional disciplinary protocols and your state board of nursing’s disciplinary actions if you need more knowledge on this topic. Explain your rationale.

• Do you believe the supervisor should report Savannah’s behavior to the state board of nursing? Why or why not? Explain your rationale.
