Project Description

Length: 2000 words


Task: Pamela is a recently graduated registered nurse working in a small

private hospital. Within her workload is a client receiving Morphine by

intravenous infusion post-operatively. The client has been vomiting

intermittently during throughout the previous shift and it is now evening.

Pamela reports this to the senior nurse (Jane) on duty and requests that

the analgesia be reviewed. Jane tells Pamela to cease the Morphine

infusion and to give Metoclopramide 10mg slowly intravenously.

Pamela ceases the morphine via the patient’s IV line, but states there is

no written order for the Metoclopramide and that she is unwilling to

administer the anti-emetic without one. Jane then independently

administers the Metoclopramide intravenously. The client experiences

an allergic reaction which requires urgent medical intervention.

b.)scope of practice and standards of professional conduct, taking

cognizance of guidance (if any) provided for nurses via the

ANMAC competencies and/or Codes of Conduct and Ethics

c.) the responsibilities of the nurse-client and nurse-nurse
