Cases of Note

One of the most difficult arenas in the emergency environment for the new and seasoned clinical nurse specialist is the clinical remediation of professional nursing staff. It is easy to say that each person must be treated the same, but the foundation of each practice issue and problem is unique. Identifying and utilizing a standardized process with which concerns are addressed on the basis of theoretical models, expert nursing knowledge, and standards of practice are the keys to success.
