Interactive Ward Ethics 2: Dangerous

This is the second interactive post, and the scenario places our long suffering but excellent medical registrar, Nina Charan, in a no-win situation. She observes a colleague, another registrar, making a complete mess of a delicate medical procedure, and has to decide how to deal with it. Should she ignore it, manage it herself, give him time to improve, or escalate her concerns immediately? What may look obvious, from a patient safety point of view, becomes more challenging when you think about the psychology and emotional risks.

The choices you make for Nina will lead her into various stressful consequences, although some will result in a satisfactory outcome.

I recommend using the back arrow on your browser to move back if you want to take another route. There is a route map in the Summing Up section.
