CASE INTRODUCTION – Charlotte Greene, a registered nurse, is discharging a pediatric patient, Joey Slater, to home care under the supervision of his mother. The child returns to the hospital five weeks later with some concerning issues

Brief Summary of Case

SCENE 1: Joey Slater, an 8-year-old child who received blood transfusion for femur, is now ready for discharge. Stacey, a licensed practical nurse/licensed vocational nurse (LPN/LVN), offers to take care of discharge teaching about cast care, while Charlotte, an RN, calls home health care to arrange a home visit.

SCENE 2: Five weeks later, Joey is readmitted to the pediatric floor. On assessment by the RN, maggots were coming out of the cast, and perineal skin breakdown was noted. As Charlotte and the mother discuss the situation, it’s clear that there was a lack of education. The mother also states that home health nurses never contacted her. Later, Charlotte calls the agency and discovers that they tried repeatedly to contact the family without success.

SCENE 3: Charlotte tells Joey that the doctor says he can go home, but he seems worried and scared. Later, Charlotte calls social services to involve them in the patient’s care. Charlotte advocates for the patient by delaying his discharge and reporting subjective and objective findings to social services.
