Storyboard Text

  • Patient Autonomy
  • Explaining the options within an Advance Directive is important, but respecting the patient's decisions shows patient's autonomy.
  • Responsibility
  • Dr. Edwards, the post operative patient has not voided in many hours. My recommendation is to insert a foley catheter. Do you concur?
  • Accountability
  • Did I just give that medication to the wrong Mr. Williams? I need to go double check the MAR and assess the patient immediately!
  • A nurse must respect a patient's autonomy in making their own healthcare decisions. A good example of this is a patient's advance directive. The patient can decide to continue receiving treatment, or to be kept as comfortable as possible when diagnosed with a terminal illness.
  • Nurses must be responsible for their critical judgment. The nurse is exercising her responsibility in patient care by communicating to the physician her recommendation in order to prevent further complications.
  • Nurses take accountability and ownership for each task they perform. If the nurse administers a medication to the wrong patient, the nurse will take accountability for her negligence.
