  • Nursing Accountability
  • Hi, my name is Landon Smith. I'm here to discuss options for my upcoming surgery.
  • Mr. Smith, I'll be your nurse today, my name is Dylan. It's a pleasure to see you again, please follow me. 
  • Nursing Accountability
  • Thank you for asking nurse Dylan. I was concerned about the recovery time and if I really need this elective surgery. 
  • Mr. Smith, it looks like we are performing a right knee arthoscopy. You've been here before and you have discussed this with your doctor, correct? Do you have any questions regarding the procedure? 
  • Nursing Autonomy
  • That sounds great, can you tell the doctor that I wish to no longer proceed with this surgery?
  • Mr. Smith, there are other options to help your knee pain. I have a level of autonomy that means that I should explain the intervention and address all questions, and to explain any alternatives (1). One recommendation is to speak with sports medicine, which can provide non-surgerical intervention. How does that sound? 
  • This scene shows the patient meeting the nurse for before heading to the exam room.
  • This scene shows how nurse Dylan is concerned about Mr.Smith before surgery and then asked him if he has any further questions.
