Discuss the following questions:
- What would be your next plan of action since your nursing manager was unwilling to acknowledge your complaints/concerns regarding the doctor?
- Can you think of any situations when you would stay quiet when you saw a superior (charge nurse, doctor, nursing supervisor, nursing manager, etc.) providing unsafe care?
- Have you ever had a situation similar to this case study where you witnessed unsafe practice and leadership was not willing to acknowledge what occurred/was occurring? What happened? If you reported the incident – to whom and what happened as a result of the report?
- According to your textbook (on pg. 467-468 in 8th edition; 454-455 in 9th edition), what level of power is the nursing manager displaying?
