You are sharing a flat with another newly registered nurse and have noticed some changes in behaviour over the past month following a relationship break up. Your flatmate works on the same ward and has been regularly drinking heavily since the breakup and was charged (over the “high limit”) with drink driving 2 days ago. You had to pick them up from the police station in the early hours. You discussed with them about reporting this to your NUM, but your flatmate does not want to report stating ‘It’s none of their business, I didn’t hurt anyone.’ You are both leaving for an early shift and your flatmate is catching a lift with you into work. They had been out late last night and smell strongly of alcohol and still appear affected by alcohol and when you discuss this with them, they ask you not to say anything.
You are an RN and are responsible for facilitating students on clinical placement in a rural facility for several education providers. You have been working with a student on an early shift and have been admitting a female patient who needs to go to theatre. You take off her necklace and watch and put this in the top drawer, telling her that once she is admitted and prepared for theatre you will put her valuables in a marked envelope in the locked drawer. Once the patient is admitted you ask the student to finish tidying up. You go off to get an envelope to put the valuables in and label with the patient’s name and when you get back to the bed the watch is in the drawer, but the necklace is missing. You ask the student where the necklace is, and they own up to taking this and hand it back to you.
