Discussion: NURS 6221 Incident in the ER

Discussion: NURS 6221 Incident in the ER
A nurse executive’s leadership in ethical decision making is vital. This is true across the board but never more so than in situations where competing voices and priorities and a sense that timing is critical converge in ways that may be detrimental for a patient and staff.
This Discussion is based on a dramatic scenario that offers two takes on the same emergency room case. As you watch and listen, consider how this Discussion can offer valuable preparation and perspective for high stakes decision making, as well as analyzing factors that influence the decisions of others.

To Prepare:
Review the readings and videos in the Learning Resources on responding to legal and ethical issues in a healthcare setting.
The focus of your Discussion is the two-part video, Incident in the ER, in the Learning Resources. Follow this approach to viewing and reflecting on each part:
View Part 1. Consider the events portrayed, the particular influences and pressures on the healthcare team, their responses and decision-making process, and your insights on the organizational culture from those actions.
View Part 2. Consider the alternative scenario presented. Apply the same process as you followed in Part 1 to analyze the decision-making process, and consider what can explain the different outcome from Part 1.
Reflect on the legal and ethical issues illustrated in these two scenarios. As a nurse executive, what principles can you garner from this comparison to guide your legal and ethical decision making in a healthcare setting? How would you use your leadership role to guide others in positions of power and decision making on patient care and team interaction?
