'But "regretfully, that information was not fully communicated throughout the full team," '
My experience from working in ICU and ER years ago:
- Nurse to Intern: "This guy has been in Liberia"
- Nurse to Intern: "This guy has been in Liberia!"
- Nurse to Intern: "This guy has been in Liberia!!"
- Intern to Resident: "This guy has a fever."
- Charge Nurse to Orderly: "Hey, can you put that guy in a chair so we can free up exam room four?"
- Resident to Intern: "What do you suggest?"
- Intern: "Ummmm, fluids and antibiotics?"
- Resident: "Check."
Can't know, but when I hear phrases like "full team", that's what I am reminded of. Very very unfortunate. Beyond all of the additional exposure, the guy didn't get the care he likely needed to have a chance at survival.
Heh, could be. But, you've got to keep one thing firmly in mind when it comes to nurse:intern interactions: the average intern hears 6 pieces of bullshit from a nurse for every piece of important, accurate information.
Next to a July intern, a confident seasoned nurse is the most dangerous person in the hospital.
