Name:

Date:

You are the charge
nurse at a nursing home. Your colleague, RN Janet, has been coming into work
late more frequently, and has seemed tired and out of it. You know she has
been having some personal and financial troubles at home. You begin to notice
that the patients she is taking care of have more complaints of pain when she
is caring for them than when other nurses are. Two of your patients tell you I
dont think that nurse is giving me the medicine she is supposed to. My pain
pills look different, and they never work when she gives them to me. You
suspect that she is diverting their narcotics. You report this to management at
the nursing home, and are told not to make a fuss, we are already short
staffed as it is.
