Case Study On Nursing Leadership And Ethics
Since getting her RN license four months ago, Shawna, a new staff member, has been working on an infectious disease floor from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The majority of the people she works with have been there since the facility first opened five years ago. A nurse manager, two RNs, an LPN, and one technician for around 40 patients make up the staffing on a typical day. The majority of the patients are HIV-positive and suffering from multisystem failure. Many are seriously disabled and require assistance with daily activities. Although staff members invite family members and loved ones to assist, the majority of them are unavailable due to their daytime jobs. Nursing students from Shawna’s community college program are assigned to the floor several days a week.
Tina, the nurse manager, says she is “too busy at the desk” to partake in any direct patient care. The other RN, Laverne, claims the unit depresses her and has asked to be transferred to pediatrics. Sheila, the technician, is “just plain fatigued,” while Lynn, the LPN, wants to “deliver medicines” because she is “sick of the patients’ continual whining.” Shawna has recently noticed that the other staff members appear to shun the nursing students and respond to their questions with irritated, brief responses. Shawna feels lonely and burdened, and she worries about the patients who require more care and attention at night. She is frightened of being labeled incompetent or a complainer if she asks Tina for further assistance. Lynn responded to her concerns when she told her about them “Let’s face it, no one here cares about the patients or about us. The bottom line is all that matters to them! Why did you, a bright young lady, select nursing in the first place?”
