i will be honest going for a job interview and have looked on internet for medical scenarios they might ask me..problem with these questions is you always wonder whether what your answering is right..so was just testing a few out that i have thought of myself and seeing if the majority agrees with me.

Sounds like you have some pretty heavy stuff to deal with x

Some of it would depend on your place in the hospital, length of service, how high up the food chain are you etc etc x

1.If you came to work and felt that your boss had been drinking how would you handle the situation?

Try and make a light joke so he is aware you know, if he is very drunk etc then it has to be taken higher up straight away IMO

2.What would you do if one of your colleagues turned up drunk to work?

Sorry if they are drunk then there is a problem to not stay sobor during working hours, needs to be highlighted to HR immediatly esspecially if someone elses life/problems etc are in their hands!!

3.If you worked in a hospital a patient insults your colleague and then he refuses to treat the patient. What do you do?

As far as Im aware under the zero tollerance rules then he has every right to refuse to treat the patient, take note of the situation and ask the colleague to write a report to cover yourself and him if anything comes back

4.The patient refuses to be treated by a colleague because he is his foreign, what you do?

patient is out of luck IMO, if there is a serious problem i.e. can't understand the colleague becuase of a foreign accent then offer to assist but the paitent cant be raciest.

5.Your colleague deliberately ignores a protocol. How would you handle the situation?

Black mark im afraid, esspecially if you are dealing with paitents.

6.You feel that your boss does not provide training. What would you do?

take notes for yourself of how often you have asked and if the boss was helpful but couldnt do anything right away or if the boss was just being obstructive, leave it a good month or so to let the boss rectify the situation if not higher up needs to know.

7...A colleague is constantly late for work. How do you handle the situation?

once in a while with a decent excuse it happens to the best of us, if its becoming more and more commen then again write notes of when and how often its happening and then reporting. Might be worth a quiet chat to let the person know its been noticed and commented upon, that might be enough to make them pull their socks up x

8...A colleague turns up to work and looks unwell. What will you do?

Ask them whats wrong and advise them to go home esspecially again as it sounds like your working in a hospital x

9...Your boss has frequently made inappropriate sexual remarks to you. How do you handle the situation?

Been there and worn the t-shirt, start with subtle comments that its not appreciated etc, your boyfriend/hubby etc wouldn't approve of it, if it continues im afraid yet again need to write down when its happening and exactly whats being said and where you are etc, and then when you have details take it to HR

10...Again in hospital...Your consultant prescribes blood to a Jehovahs witness who has previously refused a blood transfusion. What should you do?

Because they can be very busy I think its best to question the consultant, if he says to go ahead you need to advise the paitent what it is your giving them and why and whos told you, its then their responcibility to refuse the treatment. If the paitent is not coherent then a family member needs to be advised.

11...A junior colleague whilst changing has needle marks on his arm. How do you proceed?

Excuse the pun but stop him right in his tracks!!! That can't be overlooked, he could infect someone or could be a danger to himself or the paitents. Zero tollerance on that one IMO

12...One of your colleagues has been seen taking envelopes and other stationery from the departmental Secretary office. What will you do?

Once in a while I think most people have nicked a pen, envelopes etc, if its large quantities etc and regular then a quiet work saying that someone has seen them might do the trick x

1.If you came to work and felt that your boss had been drinking how would you handle the situation?

If they have been drinking it is dangerous to be treating patients under the influence of alcohol, it wcould even be drugs rather than drink, you could confront your boss as since its your boss you should have a good working relationship, if they have been drinking advise that they should go home before they put someone at risk or their own job would be at risk.

2.What would you do if one of your colleagues turned up drunk to work?

If they are obviously drunk you should report it to the head nurse on duty (ur boss)

3.If you worked in a hospital a patient insults your colleague and then he refuses to treat the patient. What do you do?

As far as Im aware under the zero tollerance rules then he has every right to refuse to treat the patient, take note of the situation and ask the colleague to write a report to cover yourself and him if anything comes back//// (yeh that sounds about right)

4.The patient refuses to be treated by a colleague because he is his foreign, what you do?

Try to find out his language perhaps there is someone in the hospital who can speak this language, or ask for a relative to translate.

5.Your colleague deliberately ignores a protocol. How would you handle the situation?

?

6.You feel that your boss does not provide training. What would you do?

Approach your boss to see if further training could be given, they may not realise you wanted more training, this issue should be resolved between yourself and your boss.

7...A colleague is constantly late for work. How do you handle the situation?

If your not the boss surley its not your problem? If its annoying you then you cuold possibly have a word with your boss to say its unfair.

8...A colleague turns up to work and looks unwell. What will you do?

Talk to them, see whats wrong, they must go home if feeling unwell.

9...Your boss has frequently made inappropriate sexual remarks to you. How do you handle the situation?

take actions immediatley, to Hr or the boss of your boss

10...Again in hospital...Your consultant prescribes blood to a Jehovahs witness who has previously refused a blood transfusion. What should you do?

[B]Because they can be very busy I think its best to question the consultant, if he says to go ahead you need to advise the paitent what it is your giving them and why and whos told you, its then their responcibility to refuse the treatment.

(id aggree with this )

11...A junior colleague whilst changing has needle marks on his arm. How do you proceed?

Report it to your boss

12...One of your colleagues has been seen taking envelopes and other stationery from the departmental Secretary office. What will you do?

If theyre stealing a lot and often then it should be reported to your boss

I went for an interview as a nurse just in OCtober and I swear I got NO DIFFICULT questions, and certainly nothing like these....

if I had I'd probably have sh** my breeks.

I got the job btw ;)

Good luck! What are you going for?

thankyou...its for a health care assistant...what type of questions did you get asked...im so nervous!!

well certainly not those!!! believe me... :-D

I got asked what one word would my friends chose to describe me if they had only one they all had to agree on.

tell them about myself...

what would i do if there was conflict with myself and another member of staff

you might get "what do you think this job entails?" this is a good Q and good answer too as its all given to you on your job role you get for app. form... shows them what you understand of the job. whether you've bothered to look to see what it entails too...

for NHS they now have a marking section on how KEEN and ENTHUSIASTIC you come across.

so be happy, friendly, warm person thats the qualities that makes a damn good HCW :) oh also that you're not afraid of hard work etc. It's pretty gruelling at times, esp depending on what type of ward you're on as some are heavier going than others.

good luck. the main thing is just trying to relax smile and not to panic.

there'll be water on the table. if they ask you a Q - take a sip- then answer. this gives you a moment to think what you're going to say.

other Qs friends have had (I've just asked someone on MSN for u)

"why do you want to do this job?"

"why should we chose you over somebody else?"

"what do you understand about patient confidentiality" or another confidentiality related Q.
#15
thankyou for your help..thats put my mind at ease!!!Will help me prepare myself better as i will have a better idea as to the structure of the interview and what type of questions they will ask. I am normally a very confident and of course friendly person but tend to clam up in an interview!!! This job means so much as it will gain the experience i need to become a midwife which is why i want to prepare myself..i dont want to mess this up!! Thanks again..have some rep for yor time.

too many questions
#18
no problems mamamia!!

I just qualifed last Sept and the interview i had in Oct was my first for a nursing post and for my DREAM JOB (theatre nurse) and it was also only my second EVER interview (at aged 27 hehe) as I'd worked at Tesco since I was 16 before I went into nursing. I orig wanted to go on to do midwifery but there's just no jobs going round here so I loved theatres so asked to do a placement in theatres as a student, loved it and went back!

The q's I've put up are pretty much what you could be expected to be asked.

also they might ask if you've had experience in care before (and if you've had a job in care before what did it involve). If you've not - mention being a mother (I think you are going by your name on here and avvy! sorry if I'm wrong).
#19
lol..yeah i am a mum..my daughter is only just 1 so obviously she does need a lot of care. Did you go to uni..further ed to start your nursing and then go for nursing job?

I did a "pre-nursing course" which was at the time NC Health Care course at college. 1 yr full time or you could do it 2 yrs part time. I didn't have my wee man at the time so I did it full time 1 yr. When I was 20.

Then I did 3 years at uni when I was 24-27 to get my BSc in Adult Nursing.

became a single mum too half way thru 1st year, when me wee lad was just over 2.

Worth every chaotic mental minute ;-)
#21
wow well done for keeping at it!!! Thats brilliant...there is no way i can do 4 + years of further education/uni with my daughter being only one which is why im choosing the route of gaining hands on hospital experience hoping that will get me where i want quicker...without all the theory first..if that makes sense.

thanks

what route are you planning to do it?
#23
someone i know said that the hospital is putting her through her nvq in nursing..so will do that and then do the shortened pre-registration course in midwifery which i know lasts for 18 months....if that option is available of course. Or do you know of any other routes rather then studying then job?

you have to be a fully qualified nurse to be able to do the 18 month shortened midwifery course (thats what I was thinking of doing once I qualified). Unless it's a different thing where you are I don't know. Think the one you mention is same thing I'm thinking of.

I think the NVQ she is doing counts as her 1st year as a nursing uni student - they just do it on the wards and get paid. After that 1st year they then have to go to uni for the next 2 years to finish the course.
Still that's how the NVQ thing works here in Scotland might be different where you are.
#25
Yeah thats right you do have to be a fully qualified nurse. I didnt realise it will take 3 yrs to become a nurse first..not that its a problem coz its towards what i want to do..just thought it would be a only bout 3 yrs all in. Im gonna look into this a bit more so i know how it works and how im gonna do it. Thanks again for your help.x

no probs anytime just give me a yeller on here.

yeah you'd have about 1 year on your job before bein able to do the NVQ thing. then another 1 yr doin that, 2 more further yrs at uni. then your 18 month conversion.

if you've got enough grades you may be able to get straight into doin straight midwifery no nursing first - just 3 yrs course if your uni does it.
#27
yeah i think what i read about before was the direct entry diploma course in midwifery which is 3 yrs but it ceased in sept 2008..so only other route is degree or go via nursing route and then shortened course...both will take a while!

1.If you came to work and felt that your boss had been drinking how would you handle the situation?
I would take advantage of the situation and either go to the pub for lunch, go home and say that he told me I could or turn up the next day in the state the boss did.
2.What would you do if one of your colleagues turned up drunk to work?
Laugh at them/Say my farewells before they were sacked.
3.If you worked in a hospital a patient insults your colleague and then he refuses to treat the patient. What do you do?
Tell them to suit themselves - I'm there to help them, not myself.
4.The patient refuses to be treated by a colleague because he is his foreign, what you do?
Ask them straight - why?
5.Your colleague deliberately ignores a protocol. How would you handle the situation?
Ask them what sort of protocol they ignored
6.You feel that your boss does not provide training. What would you do?
Tell him when I can't carry out tasks that require training or if it puts myself or anyone else at risk, don't carry out the task
7...A colleague is constantly late for work. How do you handle the situation?
See if their wages are being docked, if not, start turning up late aswell.
8...A colleague turns up to work and looks unwell. What will you do?
See if they manage to get the day off work, if so, put on a sad ''ill'' face and go see the manager.
9...Your boss has frequently made inappropriate sexual remarks to you. How do you handle the situation?
If its a man, report him to the police, if its a woman - who knows?
10...Again in hospital...Your consultant prescribes blood to a Jehovahs witness who has previously refused a blood transfusion. What should you do?
Tell them that they are FUBAR
11...A junior colleague whilst changing has needle marks on his arm. How do you proceed?
Slowly back away and never share cutlery, crockery or possibly the same seat.
12...One of your colleagues has been seen taking envelopes and other stationery from the departmental Secretary office. What will you do?
Wonder if she had a penpal they are always writing to



Sorry, its pretty late and these questions are the kinda questions you'd expect on an exam or something. I wouldn't do any of this on here, just tried to humour myself :p
