Case Study

You are working a shift at an inner-city Melbourne hospital and you observe the following scenario: Your colleague Mary needs to collect bloods from a new patient. Mary reads the admission notes of David, who has come from emergency. David is 58-years old, has identified as Aboriginal and has presented with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes. Mary makes her way to the ward before the doctor and other medical staff arrive. Mary enters the room is surprised to see a fair-skinned male in the bed, she asks out loud if he's the Aboriginal man. Mary is looking at the admission notes when she asks how he's feeling. David is presenting as slightly agitated and tells Mary that his sister dropped him off at the hospital, and now he doesn't know if she found a park or has driven home. Mary doesn't respond but instead focuses on the task as she moves closer to the bed to ask David for consent to take blood. He pulls his arm away. Mary tells him not to make things difficult, that she is very busy, and the doctor is coming soon.
