Case Study
Mrs. Ling is 88 years, a Vietnamese immigrant to Australia from the 1970’s and is in an aged care facility in Ipswich. She has been placed in the facility recently as she lives on her own, and has been deemed unsafe to self-care and mobilise at home without some supervision. She is a widow of 4 months and is still grieving the loss of her husband who cared for her due to her reduced mobility. She is upset about leaving her family home that her husband built for their family on arrival to Australia. Every day she asks staff, “When can I go back home?”
You are the student nurse caring for Mrs Ling and you respond to a call from her nurse-call button. Mrs Lingi has family visiting and they start to question you on why their Mum has been told she “can go home this weekend as she is improving” and “the nurse said today that she can go home.” You attempt to explain this is incorrect, when Mrs Ling interrupts and states she was told this morning when being escorted to the bathroom without any assistance. Mrs Ling states she was praised by you, for “doing so well on your own” and “completing all the morning wash and teeth brushing with no help at all.”
You realise there has been a misunderstanding of your positive praise for Mrs Ling and you move closer towards Mrs Ling, leaning over her to face her, and start to say loudly:
“No I didn’t Mrs Ling, you have that mixed up. I was just praising you for being very good on your own, not needing my help.”
With that, Mrs Ling’s son stands up, moves closer to you and states loudly,
“Don’t speak to my mother like that! She is not deaf and that was very rude the way you spoke to her just now.”
You step back from the son quickly, startled by his close presence. You then turn to speak to Mrs Ling who is sitting in bed.
“Sorry Mrs Ling, but you need to tell your family the truth. I didn’t say you were going home. You have misunderstood my praise for you was suggesting that you are ready to go home today, which is not the case”
You then leave the bedspace and speak to your colleagues in the tearoom about your “stressful morning with Mrs Ling”.
