Case 1. Fidelity Tim RN works on the skilled nursing unit of a… Case 1. FidelityTim RN works on the skilled nursing unit of a small rural hospital. Recently purchased by a large corporation, the hospital was forced to dismiss nearly one-third of the staff. Lately, when Tim comes to work, he feels totally overwhelmed. Although he always considered himself efficient, Tim is distressed because he rarely has enough time to complete his work. He knows that many of the patients suffer because of lack of attention, not being turned regularly, waiting for assistance with eating, and medications not being given on time. Mrs. Wallace is admitted to the skilled nursing unit after two weeks in the intensive care unit. She is suffering from expressive aphasia and hemiplegia secondary to a CVA. Mrs. Wallace has been on the unit for three weeks when her daughter notices a large reddened area surrounding a small grey ulcer over her mother’s coccyx. Tim suspects that Mrs. Wallace has not had good attention to turning and sitting in a chair which is ordered. He recognizes the sore as a pressure ulcer, which could have been prevented. Tim hesitates to tell the daughter that the problem is a potentially severe one and might have been prevented with good nursing care measures. He believes she has a right to know but is hesitant to implicate himself or the other nurses, and is afraid that he will lose his job.s:What are the ethical principles implicit in this situation?What are Tim’s conflicting loyalties?The staff on the unit is efficient and hard-working, skipping lunch and staying late to complete their work. So are the staff responsible for the apparent poor nursing care?Should Tim tell the daughter and risk his job by telling the truth?Is this an ethical or practice dilemma?
