1. You walk into your shift and find your patient unresponsive. What do you do? 2. Your patient is receiving an enteral feeding via their G-tube. Suddenly, the patient, who is nonverbal, becomes irritable, distended, and is exhibiting signs to indicate discomfort. What do you do?
1. Follow CPR guidelines. Check for response, breathing, and pulse. If none are present, call 911. Start chest compressions as appropriate (infant vs adult). 2. First, stop the feeding. Attempt to vent the G-tube per doctor's orders. If distention and discomfort persist, call the physician and note your supervisor.
What are your first approaches/interventions to addressing an employee that is not performing up to expectations? How do you approach an employee that is insubordinate?
Education and communication is key. Expectations will not be understood without effective communication. In addition to effective communication, providing expectations, and appropriately educating the employee, they must understand the objective of your message and expectations. The manager must develop a shared goal between the organization and the employee. Explaining an organizational goal in a way that also aligns with the employee's goals will assist the employee to understand their role within the organization and what the goals are. Allow time for the employee to ask questions and make improvements. If improvement is not seen within an appropriate amount of time (may be according to organizational policy), further action may be needed, such as written discipline or moving up the chain of command.
