School Paper Help for OB

  1. Hello everyone!

    I am writing a paper on the different type of nursing care that raped pregnant women need throughout their pregnancies. I am supposed to obtain an interview with someone who has experienced this, however, I do not know anyone.

    I am posting this and asking if any nurses out there have had to care for this type of individual and if there was anything you had to do differently.

    Any feedback is appreciated! Thank you in advance!

    Your assignment is to interview a nurse. Online forum answers do not constitute interviews. Interviews are required because of their give-and-take, informative nature. Please go to your nearest hospital and request to interview a Labor & Delivery nurse.

    If you raped you probably don't want to carry pregnancy to term

    Seriously? You are an RN? A BSN??!

    Your lack of punctuation/misspellings imply that OP is the rapist. Unbelievable.

    Nursing needs to raise its basic communication standards. Perhaps then we'll be taken seriously as a profession.

    Go to a pregnancy crisis center (not an abortion clinic), tell them who you are and what you're doing and they might be able to help you out.

    I found that school nurses near my home were the best place to start networking. If they're not a good candidate, then ask them for direction. Hint: they may know a nurse that works at a ER, or may send a few texts out to her RN friends.

    The other comment about just showing up to a hospital near you, disregard!!
    The best way to build a network is NOT by dropping in unannounced. You might get the same tone displayed on your first 2 replies . Call ahead, ask to speak to the charge nurse at the emergency unit, let her know what your trying to do (keep it short). She may assign an RN to help you, and set up an appointment for you. Make sure you have your questions written down beforehand.
    Let us know how this worked out for you. Good Luck!

    Basic communication standards? As in, maintaining a high level of professional communication and tone? I can see that you're upset.

    Your tone on both comments also compromises what you call "basic communication standards", in addition to setting a bad example to nursing students, and degrading a nursing student's question. Focusing on the outcomes of your actions may elicit a more productive and effective communication technique, rather than becoming part of the problem. Public display of a negative tone does not solve this student's question, nor does it resolve the grammatical errors posted by the comment you shamed.
    Namaste!

    Aren't you just a peach!!! And people make typos all the time my dear. Other people reading, I'm sure, knew that the poster was not talking about the OP. Jesus take the wheel please!

    The care provided shouldn't necessarily be different than what you should do for any woman but I suppose I'd have to say I'd be more diligent.

    Always protect privacy, always ask permission before touching, describe what will happen before doing, stop immediately if patient says she's uncomfortable, in L&D I would make sure to provide lighting that patient prefers. For instance I almost always provide low lighting for a cozy atmosphere. I'd make sure to ask (although I almost always ask every family anyhow) what she preferred. There are more thoughts I have but those come immediately to mind.
