Overriding Areas of Care - Physical Jeopardy

Physical Jeopardy

Any action or inaction on the part of the student which threatens the patient's physical well-being. Students are accountable for the patient's safety throughout the entire PCS. Any time the physical safety of the assigned patient is threatened through ommission, such as not reporting a deterioration in the patient's clinical condition, or by an imminent incorrect action by the student, the entire PCS will be terminated and failed. This area of care is to be invoked at the discretion of the Clinical Examiner and supported by data from the clinical situation.
