MHC6303 WEEK 5 LECTURE

A Young Man in a Tough Job

Ken, a healthcare management professor, recalls a personal story that occurred years ago when he was working as a nurse’s assistant while attending college. He worked the night shift, from 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m., in a twenty-bed orthopedic ward of a not-for-profit hospital. The staffing never changed—one registered nurse and one nurse’s assistant—but the workload certainly did. The patient census ranged from seven or eight to eighteen or nineteen. More importantly, the types of patients and their needs varied greatly. Most patients on the floor were hospitalized following orthopedic surgery, ranging from a young man hurt in a construction accident to elderly people recovering from total hip or knee procedures. Ken remembers that on some nights, it was quiet and he would sit at the nursing station, trying to read some schoolwork but often nodding off to sleep. Other night’s patients required the assistance of one or two staff members to change positions or use the restroom. Managing staffing requires reviewing schedules and projecting needs based on acuity of care and numbers of patients. These are both important to prevent patient safety issues and aberrant quality of care events.
So far you have experienced events leading a patient safety issue. Next you will experience the actual event. Review the following for more information on this topic.

One Bad Night

Ken remembers one very demanding night when he was literally running from room to room, his tennis shoes squeaking on the shiny tiles as he darted up and down the hospital hallway. That was the night his mistake harmed a patient.
He doesn’t remember for certain why Howard was hospitalized. Howard was in his eighties and somewhat confused about time and place, but he was continent of bladder and would put on his call light when he had to go, which was frequently during the night. The care plan for Howard was to assist him to the toilet. He needed the assistance of one person with the aid of a walker.
Howard moved slowly. The process of helping him swing his legs from the bed to the floor, sitting him up, positioning the walker, going with him the few steps to the toilet, adjusting his pajama bottoms, steadying him as he urinated, helping him wash up, and returning him to bed could take five minutes or more. All the while, call lights would be going off up and down the halfway.
Ken knew that some of the other patients needed immediate assistance. He was frustrated but trying his best. One time, he decided to take a shortcut. He had Howard sit on the edge of the bed, helped him position the urinal, and said he would be back in a minute. Ken had taken no more than a cou
