N3375 Health Policy & Legal Aspects Potential Malpractice Claim Read this scenario. Decide if the situation presents potential elements of malpractice. Nurse A was assigned to Mr. Jones, a post-surgical patient on the Medical-Surgical floor, who had been doing well on the day shift. Nurse A was working a 7:00 P.M. to 7:00 A.M. shift. (Dr. Grumpy, Mr. Jones’s treating physician, had screamed at Nurse A last module when Nurse A called him at 3:00 A.M. to report a change in status of another of Dr. Grumpy’s patients.) During this shift, Nurse A became uneasy about the status of Mr. Jones, which reflected a substantial change in blood pressure and pulse, but Nurse A did not call Dr. Grumpy, choosing instead to “watch” the situation.
