Additional Information

THE CASE:  Nurse A is an experienced labor and delivery nurse.  Problems were encountered during the labor of Mother and delivery of Baby.  As a consequence, Baby has profound disabilities.  Was the negative outcome a result of negligence of Nurse A?  Did Nurse A appropriately follow orders?  Did Nurse A exceed her scope of practice?  Did she timely notify the physician of a change of status?  Should she have gone up the chain of command when the physician did not quickly arrive on the labor and delivery unit?  These same questions can be applied to many types of events in which nurses find themselves, regardless of the practice site.  Attend TNA, D-4’s Mock Trial and serve as a member of the “jury”.
