Patient M, a woman, 34 years of age, is in critical condition and is scheduled for
emergency surgery following a severe motor vehicle accident. You have been informed
that her two children have been killed in the crash. She is almost hysterical and is asking
you repeatedly about the condition of her children as you prepare her for emergency
surgery. Do you tell the mother the truth about her children at this time or wait until after
the surgery? Forensic Nursing 1.How important is mental health screening in a
correctional facility? 2. How has deinstitutionalization of persons with mental illness
affected jails and prisons in the ensuing years? Mary has been a registered nurse for 9
years, working 4 days a week on a busy obstetrics/gynecological unit. Five years ago,
she began taking call 7 days a month for a sexual assault response team (SART)
program, 24-hour on-call shifts. She averages four forensic examinations a month. The
SART nurses are independently contracted, and all have other full-time nursing jobs
outside of SART. The examinations are performed at a free-standing site, and little
opportunity exists for collegiality. For those who have the time to attend, opportunities
exist for peer review and occasional in-services. Mary prided herself on her ability to do
what others considered “tough work.” Other nurses at her hospital often told her, “I don’t
know how you do it; it must be so sad to do that work.” Mary replied that she did not
consider it as sad, and that this work was what she signed on to do. Lately, Mary has
been calling in sick more often at her hospital job, disorganized in her SART
examinations, and increasingly critical of her peers. She has voiced frustration to her
colleagues about the patients she has been seeing: “I can’t believe how stupid some of
these women are, walking alone at night, taking rides from strange guys, getting drunk.”
She told her partner that she “dreads” her cell phone ringing on the days she is on-call,
because “getting a call means I have to hear all those stories, and I just don’t think I can
care about that anymore.” Mary feels guilty about this, and has begun drinking “to feel
better” when she is not on-call. She has not shared these feelings with her nurse
colleagues, for fear of being judged as “weak”; no one else has said they feel like this, so
there must be something wrong with her. What are the concerning feelings that Mary is
experiencing? Who is Mary’s support? Identify at least three strategies Mary use for
managing VT and promoting resiliency.
