The paper “ How the Nursing Management Will Handle the Diverse Interest of the Stakeholders” is a helpful example of a finance & accounting case study. The major problem, in this case, is the way patients were handled in the hospital, nurses were taking longer time to act on the problem which patients were undergoing, for example when Kim (patient) complained of pain in the top of his foot, the nurse did not respond immediately, instead, she only promised to discuss with another nurse. This was unprofessional because if she knew she could not handle the patient she could have consulted the doctor.
The second problem is when the patient asked the second nurse for the drugs for pain-relieving. The nurse laughed at the patient instead of treating him and saying that she thought the patient was a lady. Such cases indicate that the nurse was not handling the patient in a proper manner. It is not the duty of a nurse to know whether the patient is a boy or a girl but should treat all patients equally regardless of gender (Sherman and Matzo pp 90-94). In addition to this, the same nurse also fails to listen to Kim (patient) when he was explaining how he felt during the time he was discharged and instead she responded rudely to Kim by saying that “ people who ride motorbikes have to expect to get hurt” .
This was negligence, the nurse was negligent of her duties and as per the contract which is there between her and her profession. All the professional doctors and nurses need to maintain high nursing standards and proper ethics expected of them when handling the patients in the hospitals.
The nurse worsened the situation when she told the patient that he was supposed to die in such an accident. From her conversation, it means that the nurse was not ready to offer her services and if she was ready, then it might mean she was not qualified in that profession. This is totally against the expected professional nursing standards for any practicing nurse. This nurse was lacking self-discipline and she was not performing her duties accordingly as is evident in how she handles patients in the hospital.
The nurse had taken it as if the young boy (Kim) had involved in an accident intentionally, in addition, she fails to provide a proper discharge sheet to the patient, claiming that the patient was in the wrong ward.
