Case Study #2
Claude Jean-Baptiste is recovering from post-hip replacement surgery and has been transferred to the
Rehabilitation Institute adjacent to the hospital. When he enters the unit, he sees welcoming signs
written in several languages including his own, Creole. Since there are no nurses on that shift that
speak Creole, they use a language line to ask for translation services. During this initial nursing
assessment, the translator informs Mr. Jean-Baptiste that the nurses invite him to have a relative at his
side so that they can be sure to understand and meet his needs. He is asked about Haitian customs
and beliefs that they might honor. Mr. Jean-Baptiste is encouraged to bring food and spiritual care
items, and to share the warmth of his culture with the nursing staff. Identify moral and ethical concerns for this patient and relate them to the transpersonal caring
relationship with the nurse. How is love, as defined by Watson, evident in this caring moment? How can the nurse creatively use self to create a healing environment? Discuss the strengths and limits to Watsonâ€™s Theory. This paper should include 2 outside references and your book. This paper should be at least 4 pages.
