One page per case study. Case Study Choose two of the five case studies presented and analyze them from the perspective of a nurse manager. For the purpose of analysis, assume the role of nurse manager, and critically examine approaches you might use to change the negative attitudes and behaviors of those mentioned in the case studies. Describe how your approaches would be received by the other nurse or individuals and what would occur if no change occurred. Analyze whether you have ever used a similar approach in your own work environment. CASE STUDY 1 When a Black patient was admitted to a small rural hospital with predominantly White staff and patients, nurses from one shift would include “Black male” in their report to the oncoming shift. When one of the few Black nurses began using “White male” or “White female” in her report, she was accused of “having an attitude” and “trying to instigate racial trouble. CASE STUDY 2 When informed that a patient was requesting medication for pain, a Lutheran nurse of German heritage responded to a fellow nurse, “She’s just a Jewish princess who complains about pain all the time.” A Jewish laboratory technician overheard the remark and demanded to know what the nurse manager was going to do about the “blatant anti-Semitism” on the unit. CASE STUDY 3 A slightly built Black male nurse asked to meet with the operating room nurse manager about a surgeon who had recently emigrated from Russia. The nurse complained, “Dr. Ivanovich keeps asking me why I became a nurse. He asks very personal questions about my sexual orientation and wants to know if I’m ‘queer.’ I consider this a hostile work environment and refuse to scrub for his surgical cases anymore.” CASE STUDY 4 After receiving a report on a critically ill victim of a motor vehicle accident, Dr. Juan Valdez-Rodriguez, the physician on call, asked for the patient’s name. The reporting nurse said, “I don’t know. Martinez, Hernandez, something like that. You’ll recognize him when you see him—just another drunk Mexican who ran his pickup truck into a tree.” Upon entering the examination room, the physician immediately recognized the victim as his cousin. CASE STUDY 5 A nurse entered into a conversation with a Chinese American food service worker. Ms. Chin remarked that for the past 4 days she had been asked to be the interpreter for an elderly Chinese man on one of the units where she delivers food. “I don’t want to offend the nurse manager who asked me to translate, but it is not right for a younger woman to speak for an older man. It is not our custom. Besides, my supervisor scolded me for being so slow to do my work. She thinks I have become lazy. Would you talk to the nurse manager for me?” From: Andrews, M.M. & Boyle, J.S. (2012) Transcultural Concepts in Nursing Care, 6th Edition. Philadelphia, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. Choose two of the five case studies presented and analyze them from the perspective of a nurse manager. 1. For the purpose of analysis, assume the role of nurse manager, and critically examine approaches you might use to change the negative attitudes and behaviors of those mentioned in the case studies. 2. Describe how your approaches would be received by the other nurse or individuals and what would occur if no change occurred. 3. Analyze whether you have ever used a similar approach in your own work environment. 4. Relate four cultural concepts and assess how they can be used to provide transcultural nursing care to families and community aggregates. 5. Describe an example of how cultural factors influence the health and illness of an aggregate group within the community. Explain how nurses can influence the community’s health using a cultural approach.
