Scenario 1
You are commencing an evening shift as a graduate registered nurse (GRN) in an Aged Care Facility. You have just received patient handover from the staff on the morning shift. One of your patients, Mrs Pamela Jones, is an elderly woman aged 78 who has had some episodes of confusion and disorientation in the facility, particularly with finding her bed. She is crying softly and is visibly upset. As you approach to assist her, she becomes frustrated about her -failing memory- and asks for the nurse who has cared for her today to come immediately to help her, and pushes you away. Her son arrives at that moment and asks what has happened as he sees his mother crying. He looks at you, stating loudly, -Are you the nurse? What has happened? I have not seen her this upset before?-
Scenario 2
You are on clinical placement in an aged care facility as a first year nursing student. The assistant in nursing (AIN) you are buddied with today has requested you to help with an assisted shower for resident Mr, Glen Potter, a 94 year old man who has partial hearing loss and wears a hearing aid, however has removed it for his shower. As you commence the shower, the AIN motions to leave the bathroom, alerting you to a call on her mobile phone from her sons school saying she insists she must answer it. She leaves you alone with Mr. Potter in the bathroom, who quickly becomes distressed with the AlNs absence and starts shouting at you, -No, no, stop what youre doing! You arent washing me properly-. Mr. Potter grabs the shower nozzle out of your hand, showering you with water. You try to cairn Mr. Potter and attempt to remove the shower from his hand just as the AIN returns, saying loudly, -What happened? I can hear him shouting out in the ward! Why are you so wet?-
