For this written assignment address the following case study: Apa format with reference and in text citations. Dr. Smith is an orthopedic surgeon working at your facility, he is known as someone who doesnt tolerate delays in his schedule, can be very rude, does not appreciate being questioned by others and lacks a warm bedside manner. Mrs. Gonzalez speaks limited English, requiring a language translator for communication between care providers and herself. She is scheduled for a right hip replacement this morning and has had all her labs completed and resulted, has not eaten anything since midnight the night before. She has not been consented for her surgery and she indicates to you that she has some questions about the surgery and care afterwards. You advise her that when Dr. Smith comes in, you will advise him of her questions so he can answer them. Dr. Smith comes in early in the morning and you notice he is in a rush. He tells you he has many surgeries scheduled today and needs to get started. You try to inform him that Mrs. Gonzalez has questions and he abruptly tells you, “just bring her into the OR and I will talk to her in there.” Dr. Smith begins to explain the surgery to the patient and you can tell that Mrs. Gonzalez is not understanding everything he is saying. Dr. Smith then writes “Left hip replacement” on the consent form and asks Mrs. Gonzalez to sign the form. How is Dr. Smiths behavior undermining a safe environment for patient care? How can this lead to errors and poor patient outcomes? As a member of the team responsible for her care, what are some of the steps you can take to advocate for Mrs. Gonzalez to ensure she understands the procedure? What is your responsibility in ensuring that the correct surgery is performed today? How can your organization help prevent this type of behavior from continuing? By using APA format, write a three (3) to four (4) page paper (excludes the cover and reference pages) that addresses the topic described. Current references include professional publications or valid and current websites dated within five (5) years. Compose your work in a .doc or .docx file type using a word processor (such as Microsoft Word, etc.) and save it frequently to your computer. For those assignments that are not written essays and require uploading images or PowerPoint slides, please follow uploading guidelines provided by your instructor. Check your work and correct any spelling or grammatical errors.
