Apply what you have learned from this chapter by completing the following learning activities:

1. You are a nursing student observing care in the Critical Care Unit (CCU) as part of your clinical course. You have been assisting a critical care nurse with the care of a patient who has been experiencing significantly low blood pressures throughout the day. The nurse has to step away from the bedside to take a phone call and instructs you to increase the intravenous (IV) medication if the patient’s systolic blood pressure drops below 90 mmHg. What is the appropriate response to this instruction?

2. You are completing a clinical rotation on a medical-surgical unit and are invited to join a few staff nurses in the breakroom for a lunch break. While you are in the breakroom, you notice one of the staff nurses complaining loudly about a patient and discussing sensitive patient care information. What is an appropriate response to this situation?
