Your coworker calls for help – you go in to see her patient, sitting up and talking just a few minutes ago, now turning blue and gasping for air. You have a real chance to intervene and make a difference – that’s why you became a nurse! What will you do?
Imagine you are taking care of your patient – anywhere – the office, clinic, Nursing Home, OR, in the community and suddenly grasp that an emergency situation is unfolding. Do you know what to do? How to respond? Even if you call an ambulance or have a rapid response team coming, YOU may still be taking care of that patient for up to 8 minutes or more. What can YOU do in that time to improve the chances of a positive outcome?
How will you help save lives?
Your patient down the hall calls for help. As you enter the room, you see him begin to vomit blood. He becomes pale, and less responsive – but still awake. You call a Rapid Response, and stay with him until the team arrives. They assume care of the patient.
You’re left wishing you had done more – he was your patient, after all.
This intense course will provide you with the clinical insights and critical thinking skills that ED nurses excel at. You will no longer need to feel uncertain and scared.
The ability to assess, intervene and advocate will be reinforced through exciting clinical cases. You will experience the dramatic changes in your own practice when you work your next shift!
