What would be an appropriate response to this statement?

Emergency department (ED) acuity may be defined as the general level of patient illness, urgency for clinical intervention, and the intensity of resource use within an ED's clinical care environment (Yiadom, 2018). When figuring out assignments for the ED we need to take in to account not only experience levels but also nursing specialties. A nurse can have many years of experience but when put into new situation may become overwhelmed and cause more harm than good. When it comes to floating O'Connor (2017) states, Interventions may be within the nurse's scope of practice, but not within his or her acquired skill set. This being said I think it would be more appropriate to load up the Med Surge Nurse with more of the lower acuity patients.


The Med Surge nurse would be assigned to the 24 year old discharge, and the constipated 80 year old. My reasoning for this is that if another trauma came through the doors and the ED nurses have a full plate, that trauma maybe out of the Med Surge nurses scope of skills. While it may sound scary to give a trauma or a HA to a new nurse, ultimately that nurse has been working full time in the ED for 6months. That nurse has been around emergency situations long enough to take a heavy patient. I would assign the new nurse to the 38 year old with severe pain. Lastly I would give the MVA to the senior nurse. She has the long time experience to look for other less noticeable injuries and is less likely to skip steps in care and more likely to see signs of decline.
