Thank you for agreeing to talk to me about the discussion we had the other day about assigning patient load. As I started to say in the meeting but got interrupted, it is that I really don’t like the new plan that we have. I like the old one better and I don’t understand why we need to change.
I think that they expressed one concern about visiting patients in Iron Ridge. And that is the key as they were with high crime rate. We all recognize this issue. I do understand, but the new patient assignment scheme is meant to match you with a patient who will most benefit from your specialty and not where you live geographically.
There are many patients in Iron Ridge who have diabetes that need your expertise. Well, I really do love my patients, and I don’t hold it against them that they live in a bad part of town. But frankly, I’m afraid. Every night when I watch the news, there’s somebody that’s been involved in a shooting or a carjacking.
I talked to my husband about it, and he said that if you insist I go over there, he wants me to quit because it’s not safe. I have an idea I would like to explore with you. What if we sent an escort to accompany you on your visit?
Would this help you feel safer in that neighborhood? Sure it would, but do you think that’s realistic? The last I heard, we didn’t have any money to give us nurses raises and bonuses. I mean, do we even have the budget for something like security? It’s realistic as long as I can justify the safety of our nurses.
Let’s say the cost is a barrier to this scheme. What do you think? Well let me think about it. I need to talk to my husband too. I can’t decide right now. But you’ve given me something to consider.
At times the needs of our families conflict with our work responsibilities. Could this possibly be the underlying issue here?
Explain the conflict resolution skills displayed by the leader in the scenario. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate those of the leader.
How might earlier collaboration have been beneficial? What other leadership skills should be used?
The book ‘The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ was written in 1885 in Bournemouth, England and in January 1886 was first published by Longmans, Green & Co, and is probably one of Stevenson’s best-known stories he wrote. The novella is a Gothic mystery story set in the 1880’s in London. It is about a man named Mr. Utterson and how he discovers the truth about his friend Dr Jekyll and the horrors that occur as the mystery unfolds. The story is veiled in mist and characters uncertainty. We see the rising actions of Mr. Utterson as he attempts to discover the truth of the relationship between Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and the constant theme of the ‘duality of human nature’ and reputation. The story begins with a trustworthy and sensible man named Mr. Utterson and his friend Mr. Enfield as they are taking their weekly stroll around an area in London. As they pass a very dilapidated door, Mr. Enfield recalls a gruesome story of physical attack. The story depicts how a man named Mr. Hyde ‘trampled calmly’ over a young innocent girl ‘like some dammed Juggernaut‘. This would immediately create surprise and intrigue in the readers mind. Why would anyone trample a young girl to the ground? The man pays off the girl’s relatives with a cheque, which was signed by a very prestigious man, named Dr Jekyll. This creates interest and intrigue to the reader and questions would present themselves in their mind. What is interesting is how Mr. Enfield describes Mr. Hyde. He says ‘He is not easy to describe. There is something wrong with his appearance, something displeasing, something downright detestable’ [Chapter 1]. Why can Mr. Enfield not describe Mr. Hyde? How can a man make someone’s blood run cold? Mr. Enfield’s lack of description makes a pattern in the novel, even later on Mr. Utterson cannot come up with an exact description of this man, only as a ‘troglodyte’. It makes the reader find it hard to imagine what this character might look like or what he might not, and want to find out more about Mr. Hyde. How can it be that no one can describe him? Mr. Utterson represents the readers intrigue and tries to find out more information. The lawyer visits his friend Dr Lanyon to try to shed some light on Mr. Hyde. Dr Lanyon informs him that he does not speak to Dr Jekyll anymore because they had a scientific difference of opinion that Dr Lanyon refuses to express any detail. He says that ‘Jekyll became too fanciful for me’ and finds his work ‘unscientific balderdash’ [Chapter 2]. Questions would become apparent to the reader such as why did Dr Lanyon think that Dr Jekyll’s was unscientific, or did it go against any of Dr Lanyon’s beliefs and boundaries? Robert Louis Stevenson makes the conversation very blunt and withholds information by making Dr Lanyon very stubborn as to why they have fallen out. The fallout seems connected to Mr. Hyde even though Dr Lanyon has never heard of such a person. Another question might be ‘Why is Dr Lanyon so irritated by Dr Jekyll’? Before this, it is told that they were great friends so something very significant to have broken up such a good companionship. This secrecy is continuous throughout the whole novel. Robert Louis Stevenson gives the feeling that there is a veil over everyone’s eyes, even in third person we only follow the journey of Mr. Utterson and as he figures things out so does the reader. London was really the perfect setting for this novel, as during the 19th century, the industrial revolution took place and you would get very dense smog that would smother whole parts of the city for days. This interests the reader because they do not get the whole picture in one page and are eager to find out more. Fog and mist represent secrecy because they can hide what is right in front of you. The whole picture only revealed at the end of the book so you have to follow Mr. Utterson’s footprints to get the whole idea.>GET ANSWER
