Case study:

John Ryan is an 85 year old lady who has been admitted to the general ward of a 70 bedded private hospital in the south east suburbs of Melbourne. The hospital is part of large organisation that has many facilities across the state of victoria. Joan had a fall at home in the early hours of this morning resulting in a mid-shaft fracture of her left femur on admission. She is waiting to go to theatre for surgery. On admission Joan was in pain with a pain score of 8/10. She has a small sore on her left hip from lying on the floor. Joan is otherwise fit and well. So far Joan has some analgesia and dry dressing put on her hip. There is falls assessment form in Joan's notes but it has not been completed. Joan is being nursed on a standard hospital mattress and as yet has not had a pressure sore risk assessment done. The ward Joan is on has 30 beds. Mixed medical and surgical. The nurse unit manager trained in the early 1970s and is not a great fan of change however her assistant unit manager is a 2 year post graduate and just loves research. There are 5 part time assistant managers. The ward has succeeded in retaining around 30% of their graduates due to supportive environment and skill mix. 70 % of the staff has worked for the organization for over 10 year; they are predominantly part time females with school age children. The internet is available but is mainly used for handover notes and playing solitaire. Time out for study, attendance at conferences and anything not directly part of the patients nursing care is frowned upon by the unit manager.
