Q:

How have you responded in the past when your replacement calls in sick and a substitute will take over an hour to come in?

Answer

Sample Answers :


(i) Upset but did not show it, that is the nature of the job, this things happen, the patients care takes priority.


(ii) I have not experienced this necessarily, but I have had my nurse mentor cancel on me because of a family emergency. In this situation I still attended my clinical and worked with a different nurse mentor. I quickly adapt to situations, which is an important quality in a nurse. In this situation I would stay until a substitute is able to come in. I would do this to ensure patient safety and maintain positive staff morale. It is important to recognize that getting sick is inevitable, and I will most likely be in the same situation one day and will need staff to pick up my shift.
