As just starting out working as getting my clinical hours and I remember looking at my patients care plan and I didn’t see anything about this particular patient being a DON = Do Not Resuscitate and I went into the patients room to check on this man and I realize that he isn’t breathing and I called the ruse as quick as I could and I went into the room and was about to start chest compression and as I was about to start I heard the nurse shouting at me don’t touch him.
The nurse didn’t do anything as well I was upset because was under the impression that we suppose to do everything in our power to keep these patients alive.
Me and the nurse argued because I didn’t see the DON on the man’s chart and as I sat down with the charge nurse she showed me where it was located. 2.

The perception model in Chi. 2 of Communicating in the Workplace shows that prior knowledge and experiences combine with your psychological state to shape your subjective reality.
What was your perception going into the situation? How did your perception of the misunderstanding affect the communication process? My perception going into the situation was that we as caregivers are responsible for doing everything in our power to keep our patients alive. I didn’t think that I would ever come across a DON message in care plan. My lack of experience and o much pride to tell anyone that I didn’t understand the care plan but arguing with the nurse wasn’t the way to disagree, 4.
