Q:

24/7 operations are like relay races where you take the baton, run with it and then pass it on smoothly. How do you make seamless transitions on shift changes?

Answer

Sample Answers :


(i) Be prepared for the incoming crew. Ensure the ambulance is clean and fully stocked. Arrive early so that shift changes can take place on time, still leaving you enough time to check the ambulance and be ready to go if you get a call.


(ii) Show up a little early for your shift for rig check and to receive any information from outgoing crew. When you are the outgoing crew,leave rig in a better state than you found it. Communicate with incoming/outgoing crew allowing a smooth transition.

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.
