She is once again contaminated at work and her house is ran-sacked to check for deposits of plutonium. She has realized she accidently spilled her urine sample, which had been spiked.

Finally, determine if the procedure would pass the "reasonable and prudent" standard of nursing, meaning would a nurse with the same education and training perform the task. You must have a valid order from the physician, documented competency for the procedure, and be willing to accept the consequences for your actions (Anderson, 2014). When introducing the new procedure to the physicians and fellow nurses, a few steps should be taken. First, make sure administration and nursing supervisors are on board with allowing this kind of change to be implemented so that a new policy can be written stating this procedure is within the scope of practice in order to protect the nurses who will be performing it. Mandatory skills classes or in-services regarding the new procedure would have to be implemented for all physicians and nurses that would be directly involved with it.

Four years later, she was admitted to the school clinic, supposedly to have her appendix removed. It was years later that Muir learned that she had been sterilized.” (Unknown, The Sterilization of the Intellectually Challenged) The Famous Five are supposed to be a group that supports and aids others; ironically the Alberta Sexual Sterilization Act, that they helped to pass, was hurting others. If history books do not record everything, both negative and positive, the suffering and agony felt by Muir and others like her, will be forgotten.

Often small hospitals get use to the way their work flows and since there were no huge problems, none of the staff felt it needed to be addressed. Once staff saw the positive outcomes and heard from our community patients that they loved the new progress, the staff embraced the change. Our breastfeeding rate went from 60% to 71% in 6 months. Even the most argumentative staff members stated it was hard to dispute all the positives. Ultimately it was patients we served that dictated the change but it was the nurses that allowed and help facilitate the growth of our
