CONNOR FEELS UNWELL AND GOES TO THE ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT
Hello Connor, my name is Lucy. I am the nurse taking care of you today. What seems to be the problem?
The nurse, Lucy introduced herself before doing anything else first, this is how healthcare staff start to build a therapeutic relationship between the nurse and the patient. She also asks for Connors past medical history and the symptoms he is experiencing for her to pass on to the doctor. (Nursing Standards, 2016)As Connor now knows the nurses name he feels more comfortable divulging information about himself to her.
Hello again Connor, the doctor has reviewed your symptoms and has asked me to get a blood test from you, is that okay? It gives us more an accurate indication of what's going on.
