WOW. Professional organizations have no better time to shine in the wake of a criminal conviction of a nurse from Vanderbilt. Most professional nursing organizations promote open collaboration with medical teams, regulators, and administrators. My hospital has read and followed the American Nursing Association guidelines and suggestions for years. The ANA has 4.3 million members and fosters high standards for nursing practice. While promoting a safe and ethical work environment, it also advocates on health issues that effect the nurse and the public. The nurse that is awaiting sentencing for homicide, failed to do so many simple nursing safeguards to prevent this issue. If you have not read anything on this topic, please do. She gave a paralytic to an unmonitored patient in a MRI. The patient quit breathing and died. She responded to the code as a RRT nurse and realized her error and self reported. The medical center set her and many other nurses up for failure and put patients at risk. Vanderbilt did not report the death to CMS, settled out of court privately with the family, fired the nurse immediately, and still did not change all the failed practices in place. Pyxis was on critical over ride, had no scanner to check meds, unit was giving conscious sedation without an respiratory therapist on stand by, and the list goes on. The nurse still made mistakes that should have been easy to catch if you were in a unit that was familiar to you. She was supposed to pull versed but instead pulled vecuronium. Hugh differences but versed sedates and does not need to be reconstituted, Vec. has to be mixed. Not sure why anyone would give a med without knowing its effects. ANA is irate for the double standard in medicine. If a MD makes this mistake, they go to civil court and pay malpractice money; however a nurse makes a mistake and get criminally convicted after self reporting. This has set a tone for nurses to leave the profession, not be accountable for their actions, and not self report errors. There is no better time to support a group that supports us as a profession.

Patient advocacy is very important in nursing as we are the ones that talk to that patient and get to know their concerns and needs. Patients are more likely to confide in their nurse before they will their physician. When they have surgery, we are the ones who cheer them on through therapy, ensure that they get their pain medications as needed prior to therapy and teach them about their newly diagnosed diseases/conditions so that they can better understand what to expect. This is just of the few ways we advocate for our patients. In my area of work, I advocate for my patients by ensuring they have the proper referrals in place for their specialty appointments, orders are in place to have their labs drawn prior to the appointments, etc. GCU NRS430V Topic 5 Discussions and Assignment

When I worked in long term care, we had a lady that was in her early 40’s that became a resident. She had brain cancer, had tried all the treatments possible and was at the point there was nothing more that could be done. The doctors had told us that eventually the cancer would cause memory issues, vision issues, the patient would start losing balance and eventually show signs of anger issues. She was the sweetest and I had the privilege of visiting her often, getting to know her situation better and making her days easier as the time got closer. She started showing signs of getting worse and would start wandering the halls, then got to where she could not see her coffee cup or get it up to her mouth to drink. She was on all kinds of pain meds that made her tired and unable to stay awake at times, but she was in so much pain she needed them. She had a boyfriend that she had been with for a long time that did not want her to take her medication all the time (because it made her sleepy) so he could talk to her or for her to get hospice services because he did not understand hospice completely. He was in total disagreement with moving her closer to the nurse’s station to keep her safe so that she could yell out if she needed assistance immediately. This resident got to where she would not bring it up to the boyfriend and did not want to make any decisions because she was afraid that he would get angry with her. This was all during Covid so we were not allowing visitors in and the only communication available was video chat or telephone, so the boyfriend was not able to see the drastic changes we were seeing. So together with the patient’s permission and with the patient at my side, we called the boyfriend and discussed all the things that we were seeing, what the result would be (even though it was hard), and what the patient’s options were for pain control. I was also able to explain what hospice was and how they cared for the patient to where he was able to understand. The Resident would not make any decisions unless he was on board. We were able to provide dignity for the patient by assisting her with eating and drinking in a way that she was comfortable and assisting her while she was still able to ambulate and to get the hospice care she needed to make her comfortable in her last days. This was a case that hit me hard and when you work in LTC, you get close to your Resident’s and love them like they are family.
