Question 2 of 35
What was your least favorite patient? What was the situation.
Professional Answers Preview
"I had an elderly patient who was struggling to maintain their independence, but suffering from dementia while recovering from a broken hip. They were resistant at times when they needed to take medicine, so I learned how to talk to them and involve their family member in order to encourage them to do the things they needed for care."
Depending upon your scope of experience, you may have experienced the worst of the worst. In an emergency setting or even in your every day pediatrician's office, you might have encountered a difficult personality or a scenario that caused a patient to fight back. Draw from your experience and give an example of someone who was extra challenging for you. How did you handle it? What tools did you use to stay calm while interacting with a difficult personality? Show you are competent in handling those tough patients by explaining your reaction and how you helped ease the tension of the situation. "I had an elderly patient who was struggling to maintain their independence, but suffering from dementia while recovering from a broken hip. They were resistant at times when they needed to take medicine, so I learned how to talk to them and involve their family member in order to encourage them to do the things they needed for care."

Question 3 of 35
What is your favorite type of patient?
Professional Answers Preview
"A good patient responds to my questions clearly, which helps me to know what's going on and take proper action. When they are relaxed, I can get to know them better, because they feel comfortable sharing information. I am sensitive to every patient's needs, always explaining the procedure before I do it, which helps them feel at ease."
Describing your ideal patient gives you an opportunity to also describe your ideal interaction. When a patient is compliant and easy-going, you have a greater ability to do your best work. Without resistance, you can go through your routine smoothly.

Question 4 of 35
How would your coworkers describe you?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
You would introduce yourself and make sure you're with the right patient. You help them over the side of the bed and put a gait belt around their waist. You help them up and, depending on the patient's ability to bear weight, you either pivot them into the chair or have them walk at least ten steps to their chair. Make sure the bed and the wheelchair are locked and that you are right behind and beside them for safety.
2.
It would depend on the patients neurological status, ability to ambulate, and if they were on fall precautions. If the patient was at risk for falls they may require one person, or two person assist. The most important aspect of transferring is to make sure that the wheel chair is locked, the bed is locked and in the lowest position, the head of the bed is raised, and their are no cords that would cause a patient to trip. Then I would move the legs to the edge of the bed, allowing time for the patient to adjust to the position change. This is because a patient may suffer from orthostatic hypotension. Next I would provide support under the arms for a patient and instruct them that I am going to help them into a wheel chair.
3.
First I should provide the comfort position side lying and then slowly slowly sitting position should provide and gave foot stool to support the patient.
4.
Explain to pt what and how I will transfer: Place wc next to the bed facing the pt, lock wheels, raise the head of the bed, ask the client to push off of the bed to help them sit up, ask pt if they can swing their legs over, if not provide assistance, put gait belt on, have pt put hands on top of my shoulders, grab gait belt, suggest on my count of 3 to stand, gently rock pt back and forth, stand, let pt know we will rotate with small steps until their back is to the chair, then back them up two steps, let them know when they feel the back of the chair on their knees to let me know, check to be sure, then assist them to sit down while still holding onto the gait belt.
5.
Take the wheel chair near the bed side stand the pt and comfertabily shift the pt to bed.

How do you prioritize when multiple patients and procedures demand your attention at once?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Well at times I may get upset, but I understand by now these things happen, especially in the medical field.
2.
I became a nurse because of the fact that not every day will be the same. So I recognize that changes in priority are a normal daily occurance and that I must be able to provide my care based on priorities.
3.
If it does not affect how I can perform my duties I do not mind to help out. If it is going to put me behind on my schedule I will probably still do it even though I may be a annoyed.
4.
IT does not affect my mood at all, It will encourage me to work harder and faster. It is okay, this is my job.
5.
The healthcare world is constantly evolving environment. Early in my nursing career I learned how a patients status can quickly change and therefore priorities change. Because I have had a lot of clinical experience, I am able to remain calm in emergent situations and adapt to high stress situations.
6.
I welcome change and I can accommodate quickly to any situation. I understand by going into this field of nursing this could quite possibly happen on a daily basis.

I don't think I mentioned this on my resume, but I was a tour guide on campus at BU, which was a very interesting job, one of my favorites I'd have to say. The reason why its so fun is because people are interesting and ask interestning questions and you never know what to expect. When I think of a bad tour or not the best I think of one last summer, there was one woman who was crocheting and being very disruptive and critical.
2.
I recently had a patient who refused to take her shower. She had been refusing for several days for other nurses. It was a holiday and family would be visiting. I did not want her to look unkept. I assessed for pain, resident denied any. I asked why she did not want to take a shower and she kept saying "Ican't right now!' Leave me alone! I hate that everyone tells me what to do! I showed empathy by saying I understand how you feel, I must be frustrating when you are told to do something you don't want to do. What would be a good time for you to take a shower? She responded "I want to take a nap after lunch, then I will take a shower. I granted her request and she was receptive when I returned after her nap.

Recently a nurse that covers half of the night shifts in the operating room resigned. Without discussion, our managers announced at morning telling us to fill the call and working hours. I understand how important it is to have the OR covered so as a team we all covered the shifts and made sacrifices, but as a system that runs on a Shared Government as a team we would have appreciated a discussion about how the call was going to be taken.
