Section 4: Professional
Your patient Mr Stanley is having an ascitic tap on the ward today. You have reviewed the requirements of the procedure and understand that you need to assist by caring for the patient, managing analgesia and monitoring vital signs during the procedure. It is lunchtime in your busy ward. Your colleagues including the ANUM in charge, are off the ward having lunch. The ANUM handed over to you that Mr Stanley is having the ascitic tap after 1.30 when sufficient staff are available and that she has negotiated this with the resident medical officer (RMO). You are monitoring another patient with hypoglycaemia when you see the RMO with the procedure trolley going into Mr Stanley’s room. The procedure requires a nurse be in attendance. You have no available staff and you need to monitor your hypoglycaemic patient. How will you manage this RMO?
Describe in detail your response to your chosen scenario drawing upon your knowledge and research of professional regulations and requirements, professional behaviour, conflict resolution techniques, education and provision of feedback.
