Instructions : Deliverables: Submit three Response Plans to complete this assessment.

Use the 3 Intervention Scenarios

Label each outline using the example below:

Example: Response Plan for School Nurse.

Analyze each Intervention Scenario and describe the leadership, communication, and management strategies you believe would be most effective for each situation. 

Scenario One: Inpatient nephrology unit

You are the new nurse manager for a busy nephrology medical/surgical unit in a large university medical center. The renal physicians have complained that daily weights and intake/output records are not being completed. This lack of documentation affects the patient’s plan of care and is resulting in an increased length of stay for the unit. The night-shift nurses think the day-shift nurses need to do the daily weights since they have more staffing. The day-shift nurses think the night-shift needs to do the weights since breakfast arrives during report most days. No one is consistently recording the intake/output records. How will you handle this problem?

National Kidney Foundation: Clinical Practice Guidelines.

Scenario Two: Outpatient chest pain/stroke unit

You have just been promoted to the nurse manager position in a 12-bed chest pain/stroke outpatient center. The hospital is at 18 months of the 36-month Joint Commission accreditation cycle, so you are expecting a survey sometime within the next 18 months. You are reviewing the Joint Commission Core Measures for Outpatient Departments.
