He boyfriend, the father of the child, has not been supportive to date of the pregnancy and is also not on good terms with her own parents. At first, she denies alcohol or drug use but after a while, she opens up and talks about an ongoing opioid addiction. Most of the time, she takes Percocet bought on the street but due to cost, she has recently begun using heroin. It becomes clear that she will not be “clean” prior to her delivery and that her child will be born also affected by maternal opiate use.Since she has almost no external support, you know that after she delivers, she will be the primary caregiver of the infant and also hopefully working a detox program.Estimated time to complete: 3 hours

Hello everyone, my name is Rajwinder Gill, I go by Raj. I’m originally from India. I moved to the states with my parents when I was 21 years old. Currently, I live in California. I moved to US in Dec 1999, and got my RN degree in 2003. I joined Sutter Hospital as a new grad in 2004, and have been working there since then. I work in telemetry department as a night shift charge nurse. I like the hospital, my coworkers and the management team. It feels like home while I’m at work, that’s the main reason I haven’t changed my job in 15 years.I’m married to a very loving and supportive husband, and we have two beautiful girls. They are 11 and 13. We love traveling as a family and try to spend as much time together as possible. That’s one of the main reasons I work night shift so I can attend to all their needs and wants during the day. One of my daughter is type 1 diabetic since she was 3 years old. I have been trying my best to manage all of that while working and supporting my other daughter. Now, since she is 11 and getting independent in taking care of her diabetes, I have more time for myself. I always wanted to go into management or teaching in nursing. This is my first step towards my future goals. I chose GCU so I can have the independence of studying from home. Nothing can beat not having to go the classroom and still be able to finish school.

the following case:Luisa is a 32 year-old mother of two children; one child, a daughter is a teenager and the other, a son, is ten years old. Luisa has worked as an administrative assistant for the past several years. She is recently separated from her husband who is a professional manager. Luisa sees her husband as difficult. He is very rigid in his style of communicating and he often tells her that “she is lazy and stupid”. While he never hits her, he constantly berates her cooking and how she keeps the house. He has been this way for years but Luisa thought this “was the way things were supposed to be” She and her husband separated last month because he started to drink heavily and was coming home drunk. Luisa started to fear for the safety of her children and herself.Even though Luisa has worked for the same company for several years, she worries all of the time about her job. Now that she is alone she is not sure she will have enough money for the children. She does not really want to get divorced due to her religion and also because she thinks her husband will not provide for the children once he leaves “for good”. Despite her trying to remain positive for her children and large family of parents and brothers and sisters, she has not been able to relax. She has trouble sleeping and is starting to compulsively eat. She finds herself yelling at her children for no reason. Her behavior is starting to be noticed at work which is making her more tense and worried. Just last night she felt like she was having a “heart attack”. Her heart started to beat quickly and she was short of breath.Luisa’s supervisor suggested she come to the out-patient community clinic where you work. He thought it would help her. When you walk into the room, Luisa says, “my boss gave me time off to come here to get help”. Luisa’s face is pale, her voice very low, and she is wringing her hands as she talks. She does not look at you but rather at the floor.In 2-3 pages, answer the following questions:
You are a nurse leader on a very busy Medical-Surgical Unit. Your goal is to maintain continual “survey readiness” so the staff is always prepared for an unannounced survey. You have decided that your best tactic would be to design an educational handout to assist your staff in preparing for the survey. Design a one-to-two page educational tool to best prepare your staff for an accreditation survey.Please create an educational tool, not write a paper about it. I look forward to your brochure or handout
