Clinical Incident Review

Clinical Incident Review

Select an incident/episode from any of your clinical practicum experiences where you felt unprepared for or challenged by a clinical situation related to or impacting on patient care. For example, you might have observed a practice that you believed compromised safety, you might have been involved in a clinical procedure for which you felt under prepared or unsure of your role; or you might have helped care for a patient with a condition that you found particularly confronting. NOTE: The incident/episode that you review does not need to be a critical incident/emergency situation. [Part A] Briefly describe the incident/episode and the context in which it occurred. Write synopses of two legal, ethical or professional issues highlighted by the situation (e.g. refer to Codes of Ethics and Professional Conduct). Provide a short pr??cis discussing the issues in relation to your future professional responsibilities as a Registered Nurse i.e. explain how you would manage the issues if a similar situation arose in the future when you are a RN. [Part B] Identify the emotions you experienced, and observed in others, during the incident/episode. Explain how you managed your emotions and attended to the emotions of others (if relevant) at the time of the incident. In your own words, concisely explain two strategies you could use to support effective management of your emotions with regard to interpersonal communication in the clinical context. (incident choose by me: during my placement in the emergency department, I realise due to the fast turnover rate everything is rushed, nurses and doctors try to discharge patients or transfer them to a ward asap, best within 4 hours. therefore, I rarely see nurses do 5 rights check and 3 medication checks before administration medications. this may result in wrong medication given or wrong dose given. please elaborate on this.) *if references are used please make sure they are published within the last 10 years.
