ntegrate modes of inquiry to generate and evaluate hypotheses in the context of clinical reasoning.
Scenario
You  recently finished new graduate orientation in the emergency room (ER)  of a rural, 60-bed hospital, and tonight is the first shift you have  worked independently. The Intensive Care Unit of the hospital has only  four beds and usually sends the sickest clients in need of complex care  to a regional medical facility located 50 miles from your location.  During orientation, you were told repeatedly the purpose of treatment in  this ER is triage, stabilize, and send home or send to a larger network  facility.
Tonight  your first client is an 82-year-old female named Ruth. Ruth was dropped  off at the ER by a neighbor who said that she had nausea and vomiting  for a week. Her husband was recently admitted to an Alzheimer’s Unit at a  local Long-Term Care facility, and the neighbor thought stress was  making it hard for Ruth to eat, but tonight she vomited up fresh blood  and appeared dizzy. The neighbor also brought in a bag of medication she  found in the home but was unsure which medication belonged to Ruth or  her husband.
When  you enter the room to begin the assessment, you find a frail woman  sitting in a wheelchair with apparent labored breathing. She appears  dirty with matted hair clothed in a bathrobe with numerous food stains  and has a heavy smell of cigarette smoke. You notice the chart has a  highlighted area noting the client has only Medicaid for insurance. You  ask her if she understands why she is in the ER and she asks, “Where is  my husband? He is usually home by now.”
