Question

Scenario:

Jesse, one of the nursing assistants on your team, reports to you that Mr. T. has a large bruise

on his right buttock. This bruise was not there yesterday when he cared for Mr. T. This is very important information to you because you remember that the physician increased Mr. T.’s Coumadin dose 2 days ago.

Question:

How are you going to validate the importance of Jesse’s observation and the fact that he reported it to you in a timely manner?
