The facts of this case are that Dr. Guiles who is self-conscious of his prostate cancer diagnosis is treated horrendously when he finally decides to have surgery ( Buchbinder, Shanks & Buchbinder, 2014). Considering that Dr. Guiles is already sensitive about his condition, his unbearable symptoms are not helping matters (Buchbinder et al, 2014). Upon arrival at the hospital, he is treated subpar. The admitting clerk is rude and unbecoming to a patient who isn’t feeling well and who is embarrassed about his sickness (Buchbinder et al., 2014). To make matters worse, he has to find his own way up to the floor by walking, which causes him to be even later in checking in because of the need to stop frequently to urinate as well as having difficulty in walking (Buchbinder et al., 2014). Once he arrives on the floor, the charge nurse is not welcoming and unprofessional (Buchbinder et al., 2014). After figuring out what to do with the paperwork; and the nurse aide delivers Dr. Guiles to his room, the nurse aide does not offer to help settle him in (Buchbinder et al., 2014). Therefore, Dr. Guiles is faced with battling obnoxious family members who are on his bed and to make matters worse someone is in the bathroom which doesn’t help his need of having to frequently urinate (Buchbinder et al., 2014). When the issues are brought up to the charge nurse, the charge nurse accuses Dr. Guiles of wanting preferential treatment

Both patients were on the ventilator because they had to be intubated the night before. The lady is obese and had gastric bypass surgery two years ago and suffering from severe sleep apnea, but the patient is non-compliance to the CPAP treatment. That was her second time being intubated. She was admitted for seizure monitoring because she was constantly having seizures the day before while she was at home. Due to the fact that she did not want to wear her CPAP machine while in the hospital, after pain medication was administered she was found unresponsive, that was the reason for her intubation the night before. Patient was on intermittent suctioning, she has sinus tachycardia . I had the opportunity to observe some of her daily care. The patient was on fentanyl but when the Dr. try to wean her out of the ventilator she stop breathing, therefore, the DR. discontinue the fentanyl temporarily in other to retest her later.

About 2:30 in the afternoon, M.E. was in her patient’s room and J.P. confronted her in front of the respiratory staff and students that were present about why she was/wasn’t doing certain things and what was making her so slow; J.P. caught M.E. off guard and was very abrasive, belittling and verbally abusive; M.E. felt attacked and embarrassed, especially since this behavior took place in front of colleagues. J.P. felt frustrated that M.E. was not more competent and efficient in her care and confronted her about it. After the confrontation, there were no words spoken between the two of them for days and even though months have passed, there is still an obvious tension and unresolved conflict between these two individuals. There is currently a noticeable effort being put forth by both women but the conflict they experienced is not yet fixed.
