Case Study

Claude Jean-Baptiste is recovering from post-hip replacement surgery and has been transferred to the Rehabilitation Institute adjacent to the hospital. When he enters the unit, he sees welcoming signs written in several languages, including his own, Creole. Since there are no nurses on that shift that speak Creole, they use a language line to ask for translation services. During this initial nursing assessment, the translator informs Mr. Jean-Baptiste that the nurses invite him to have a relative at his side so that they can be sure to understand and meet his needs. He is asked about Haitian customs and beliefs that they might honor. Mr. Jean-Baptiste is encouraged to bring food and spiritual care items and to share the warmth of his culture with the nursing staff.

  • Discuss assumptions of the Transpersonal Caring relationship. What is the nurse’s role?

I would like to see one paragraph that introduces the theory and gives a quick explanation. You should have a level one header, Case Study 2, or Watson. You should have a level two heading Transpersonal caring, and the nurse’s role and should be at least 1-2 paragraphs.

  • How is love, as defined by Watson, evident in this caring moment?

This section should have a level two header Caring moment or Love as defined by Watson. Please provide specific examples of how the nurse showed caring moments from the case study. What do you think it means to the patient?

  • How can the nurse creatively use self to create a healing environment?

This section should be one paragraph with a level two heading.

  • Discuss the strengths and limits of Watson’s Theory.

Again, this section should be one to two paragraphs. Make sure you have a conclusion paragraph with a level one header Conclusion. This paragraph should sum up all the content.

This paper should include 2 outside references and your book. The essay should be up to 1500 words.
