Case Scenario :-
James Miller an 86 year old man with type 2 diabetes Mellit us osteoarthritis and hyper tension has lived in an Aged Care Facility for three years James was admitted to the local hospital one week ago for community acquired pneumonia and returned to the facility yesterday.
During his hospitalisation he experienced unstable blood glucose levels so his oral hypoglycaemics were ceased and he was commenced on Lant us insulin 20 units nocte. James s usual medications prior to admission to hospital included glipizide 10 mg and met for min 1,000 mg once a day James was dis charged to the aged care facility at on a Saturday due to the need for his hospital bed.The medical officer completing the discharge medication form inadvertently included James usual oral hypoglycaemic medication in addition to the Lant us on the discharge medication chart.
On arrival at the Aged Care Facility Anne Thomson the Registered Nurse looking after James read through his hospital discharge information and then filed it in his chart without ringing the General Practitioner and notifying him of James’s return to the facility and his current discharge medications. She did send the General Practitioner a fax informing him of James’s return but the GP would not receive this until Monday. Anne had graduated one month ago, and this was her first employment as a Registered Nurse.
She also did not identify that both James’s usual oral hypoglycaemics and Lant us were ordered and so she administered the oral hypoglycaemics as charted. Later that afternoon James was found to be cold clammy and unresponsive by nursing staff. James’s blood glucose level was found to be 2.1 mmol/l and Anne organised for James to be urgently transported to hospital by ambulance.
After reading this scenario please address the following points:
1. As a student nurse you need to analyse the above scenario to identify the causes of medication errors and the best practice to prevent medication errors by referring to appropriate peer reviewed/evidence based literature. Please
2.Students are required to review the current literature on Gerontological Nursing practice in Australia. Consider the impact of a specialised practice in ageing population and identify the challenges and gaps.
Select a minimum of four articles/research papers for this literature review. You can use additional references to support your observations or arguments.
