On Tuesday, September 29th my partner and I had the opportunity to interview a 55-year-old patient named Tom at LA County Hospital, admitted nine days prior for injuries he sustained after being struck by a city vehicle. His injuries were quite apparent the moment we sat down with him: his right foot bandaged up, having been crushed by the vehicle’s tires, abrasions and bruising all over his lower limbs and worst of all, a broken pelvis. Yet despite the bad shape he was in, Tom was kind enough share his life story with us and provide the limited knowledge he had about his insurance history.

This section will utilise the Gibbs' cycle to reflect upon an accident that occurred in placement. A patient, who required a one person assist, wanted to have a shower. However, she was in bed all day and had issues standing. We managed to go to the bathroom but she wanted to use the toilet and I asked her to hold on to the railings to remove her pad. Unfortunately, she held on to the unstable commode chair railings, and ended up falling on her bottom. I tried to catch her but she weighed too much. Then, I wanted to leave her to call someone but I did not want to leave her alone so I ended up pressing the call button. I felt incredibly helpless as I did not know what to do and could not help her in any way. I also felt so stupid and cruel

In April 2012, Mr. Hammett’s death was ruled to be human errors that individually would have been unlikely to harm him but proved collectively to be fatal. Mr. Hammett surgery was at at private hospital that did not have any after hours medical cover. During the procedure his oxygen saturation levels were almost perfect, maintaining it at 99%.

Mr. Hammett complained continously to the RN of high levels of pain; the RN ignored him and referred to him as a “wimp” when switching shifts. Although Mr. Hammett was on a Gemstar pump, which recorded him pressing
It's Rose Ann. I just want to let you know that Mr. Bogue, James in room 564, MRN 291222300018 fell yesterday around 4pm. He was Amanda's patient and she completed the voice.

Apparently the patient was instructed by Amanda not to get up because he was hypotensive, but he didn't listen and grabbed the walker and fell forward. We ended up calling RRT because he was hypotensive and developed a big hematoma on his right groin surgical post angiogram from previous day. The patient was transferred in ICU12. We were short staff from 7a-7p, I called everyone with no luck. Our nurses and PCA were overwhelmed, because we kept on getting multiple admissions, including 2 cath lab patients

So, it’s about 1700 and my flight has just landed and everything went pretty well. We are closing up the bird and getting ready to go home. The helicopter is all tied up and wiped down and everything is start to look good. Then some last minute maintenance comes up and the VELOs need to be tightened an blade pins need to be safety wired.
