Physician Dismisses #Nursing Assessments, #Patient Almost Loses Limb. #CaseStudy #nurseup #nursefriendly

NurseFriendly posted an update right now

Physician Dismisses #Nursing Assessments, #Patient Almost Loses Limb. #CaseStudy #nurseup #nursefriendly:”The patient was involved in a motorcycle accident in which his bike fell onto and injured his left leg. When the nurses assessing the patient could not detect a pulse in that leg, an ominous sign of circulatory failure. The physician when notified chose to dismiss this fact and discharge the patient. The patient would return soon after with worsening symptoms that would require emergency surgery. Should the nurses have initially pressed for further action, treatment?”
