i'm a new graduate, and i will have my first interview in some weeks to a foreign hospital..
i know that the employers of this hospital usually make a question about priorities, for example:
"you are at the end of your shift.. one patient comes back from surgery and, at the same time, other patient falls down in toilet. what patient will you take care first?"
how would you answer? for me it's subjective, because from my experience, usually a patient returning from surgery is stable (otherwise he would be staying in recovery unit for a longer period of time) monitored and accompanied by another nurse, while a patient who falls down can be in risk of hemorrhage, and that evaluation shouldn't be postponed..but it also can be a minor fall
what would be your answer?
