A lot of pressure characterizes the hospital practice environment.Nurses find it difficult to execute the task assigne to them becauseof the pressure that could result in depression (Letvak, Ruhm, &ampMcCoy, 2012).Despite the challenges experienced in the hospital setup, it is crucial that nurses do not relent in the tasks that havebeen assigned to them. Lee presents a case scenario about a nurse whoseems to be having a challenge in executing the tasks that have beenassigned to her. AG is expected to input proper patient records forthe role they play in the administration of treatment. However, sheconsistently fails to do so, making it difficult to administertreatment to patients.

I believe that everyone has the duty to execute the tasks that havebeen assigned to them regardless of the challenges they face. I agreethat it is hard to tolerate such mistakes considering the gravity ofthe issue. I think it was mandatory to hold the conversation with AGand ascertain the cause of the recent failures to execute the tasksthat have been assigned to her efficiently. I believe that throughthe conversation with AG, it would be possible to identify whethershe is facing personal problems that could be hindering her fromeffectively executing the tasks that have been assigned to her.

Despite the fact that the conversation was meant to bring a solution,it resulted in an argument. I think the manner in which AG reactedwas wanting and called for further action. Evidently, she was failingin her duties. However, I believe initiating a meaningfulconversation at the time of such a crisis is essential in helpingaddress the issue. I think AG’s reaction to the whole issueindicates that there is a bigger problem than what she is portraying.The conversation was crucial because emotions were running high asdepicted (Patterson et al., 2012).
