Case Study
Case Study 1
Scenario ONE
Jack has been to a local Sexual Health Clinic for his regular 6th monthly sexual health screening. Three days later he has received a call from a Nurse Practitioner advising him that he has tested positive for Syphilis and his throat swab came back positive for Gonorrhoea. He was advised to come back to the clinic to receive the required treatment.
Two days later Jack went back and saw Samantha, the Nurse Practitioner (NP), at the clinic and she was able to administer all required treatments and provided him with a prescription for Azithromycin and some condoms. Jack has also received some confidential counselling and was asked to contact his sexual partners from the past six months or alternatively provide contact numbers of his sexual partners so that the clinic can contact them directly. Jack has said that he will contact his sexual partners himself to inform them of his diagnosis.
Samantha (NP) followed up with Jack the following week to see if had contacted his sexual partners and he said he was too embarrassed to do so and was not willing to provide any numbers to the clinic at this stage. Samantha was trying to explain to Jack the importance of informing his sexual partners so that they can be tested and treated immediately. Samantha has also informed Jack that if he provides the contact numbers, they will not disclose his identity when contacting his sexual partners. However, Jack was still reluctant to provide any information and said that he needs some time to think about it.
Scenario TWO
You are working as a Health Care Assistant in the aged care facility. Mr Brown is one of the residents of that aged care facility and has a moderate form of disability that requires the use of a wheelchair. One day he has experienced a sudden episode of loose bowel motion (diarrhoea) while having dinner with the rest of the residents.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of his disability, he was not able to contain himself and has defecated before being able to reach a bathroom or call for help.
That evening you and one of your colleagues are in charge of the dinner service. You have realised that Mr Brown has suffered a rather embarrassing moment and in a need of some immediate assistance. You rush to help Mr Brown and call for your colleague to assist. However, once your colleague realised what has just happed, she could not contain her laughter as she thought it was “funny”. She was also abrupt to Mr Brown and has said the following: “You are a silly old man, why did you do that?!” Mr Brown was extremely embarrassed and broke into tears. You have said to your colleagues that we must take him to the bathroom and assist him with a shower and change of clothes right away. However, your colleague has said that it can be done after the dinner service is over. You have strongly disagreed with the decision of your colleague and have decided to call the Registered Nurse (RN) on duty. The RN arrived in few minutes and has instructed you to take Mr Brown to shower right away. The RN is also helped you to calm Mr Brown down a bit and reassure him that everything will be fine, and they will take good care of him. You took Mr Brown to the shower room he was able to restore his dignity.
In the aftermath of all this, Mr Brown called his daughter and informed her of what had happened to him. His daughter was furious about the incident and has promised to take legal actions, including informing the Ministry of Health about this incident.
