In the video, a nurse by the name of Kari gives a report to Esther over the telephone about a Janet Lieberman patient. Janet is a 36-year-old woman with a history of Crohn’s disease and had surgery resulting in an ileostomy. When she arrived at the ED, Janet was feeling dizzy and weak. She also had traces serosanguineous fluid in her ostomy. Janet has been cross-matched and typed for two RBCs that should be given as soon as possible. The vital signs of the patient were taken, and both her hemoglobin levels and hematocrit are very low. Kari informs Esther about the results, which were in normal range. Kari then brings Janet up to Esther’s unit, and Esther takes over her care. Esther questions Janet on her pain levels and abdominal condition. She also discusses stress management methods. Esther also checks Janet’s bowel sounds.
