CASE STUDY
Analyse had been working on the infectious diseases (ID) unit for over four years and found it extremely interesting. She thought it was fascinating how all the pieces from observations, assessments, and the various lab results lab results were put together to form a diagnosis and treatment plan. She enjoyed the challenges of the work and felt that her assessments were often important in helping the physician make a diagnosis.
Only one thing about working on ID consistently bothered Annalise; the presence of convicted prisoners on the unit. This happened fairly often, as they would frequently cut themselves and do something such as rubbing feces in the wound to make it infected. This was, she supposed, the act of desperate people who would do anything to get away from the prison environment for a while. When they became infected they were admitted to ID for treatment. They were always accompanied by a guard.
Annalise had been troubled for a while by a certain patient named Mike. He was a convicted rapist and pedophile who had been incarcerated for several years. This in itself really bothered Annalise, who could not understand how a person could do such horrible things. And this was not his first admission to the unit. This time he had a very serious leg wound that seemed not to respond to antibiotics. The infection was spreading, and he was in danger of losing his leg, if not his life. Still, he seemed to have a lot of energy for harassing the nurses. Annalise was his particular target. She was an attractive woman and an excellent nurse, and he was delighted each time she was assigned to him. When he was first admitted Annalise had put her feeling of repugnance aside, reasoning that everyone deserves a chance. However he seemed to be entirely self-serving and manipulative. He would make lewd and suggestive remarks, using very foul language and attempt to touch her in highly offensive ways. He ignored her requests to stop and the guards all seemed to enjoy watching her become embarrassed and angry. She found herself avoiding the room and doing little things to “punish” him. Each time she did such things, she felt a little badly about not treating him like she did her other patients, but it was somewhat satisfying, too. She felt he deserved it, and it gave her a feeling of regaining power to make his day a little less pleasant.
