23 Professional Nursing Trends

N4223 Health Policy & Legal Aspects Reflective Journal



Review: Malpractice and Reflective Questions

According to the American Nurses Association, Standard 15 “the nurse is required to evaluate his or her own practice in relation to professional practice, standards, guidelines, relevant statutes, rules, regulations, organizational policies, and procedures.” Examples of competencies related to this standard include self-reflection and self-evaluation to identify areas of professional growth.

In the first part of this assignment, you are asked to reflect on two specific key points for the course. Then, in Part 2, you will read a fictitious scenario and identify pertinent facts that pose risks for malpractice claims. Each year, nurses make themselves vulnerable for potential malpractice claims because they are not well-informed about malpractice elements. It is imperative you understand malpractice rules, regulations and facts to protect your nursing license.

· Recognize the importance of BON Rules and Legal protections and its impact on the nursing profession.

Part 2: Potential Malpractice Claim

Read this scenario. Decide if the situation presents potential elements of malpractice.

Nurse A was assigned to Mr. Jones, a post-surgical patient on the Medical-Surgical floor, who had been doing well on the day shift. Nurse A was working a 7:00 P.M. to 7:00 A.M. shift. The attending doctor, Dr. Granger, had screamed at Nurse A last month when Nurse A called him at 3:00 A.M. to report a change in status of another of his patients. During this shift, Nurse A became uneasy about the status of Mr. Jones, which reflected a substantial change in blood pressure and pulse, but Nurse A did not call Dr. Granger, choosing instead to “watch” the situation. At approximately 5:00 A.M., Mr. Jones had to be rushed to emergency surgery with internal bleeding. Now, 1½ years later, Mr. Jones has not recovered from the second surgery.

All 4 elements and 4 corresponding facts must be stated.
