I am precepting with a nurse in the ER that provides resourcing and does not take a patient load. Recently we had a critical pediatric with new onset seizures. This patient was given to a fairly new nurse, licensed just over a year, and he was having difficulties with providing care as the primary nurse. I question why the charge nurse assigned him to the patient but tried to help in the best way I could. The patient was not protecting their airway during seizures so it was decided to intubate. 2 other nurses were in helping with the intubation, along with a paramedic student, but the primary nurse was struggling keeping up with charting and verifying medications. Luckily we were able to stabilize the patient and transfer her to a pediatric neurologist. My question: as a new nurse, not feeling confident in the care of a critical pediatric patient, do I- A: request the charge nurse assign a different primary nurse B: take the patient and rely on help from other experienced nurses to instruct and help me I am nervous in caring for critical patients and want to provide the best care but what if that means the care should be from someone else? Do I stay on helping as a secondary nurse so I can get the experience or step out so they can perform tasks without too many bodies in the room? Should I speak with a supervisor and request not being assigned critical patients until I have observed more? I also don't want to screw myself out of future experiences.Thanks!
