In working with all people, it is important to promote independence. While they may have some limitations, such as not being physically able to walk or feed their selves this does not mean that a person with a physical disability is unable to be independent in all ways. PCAs should allow their patient with a disability to do all they can for themselves.

They should not take over doing something just because they may be able to do it better or more quickly. Be patient and kind. When people feel they are working with someone who is patient and who gives them time to complete a task, they are more willing to try to do it themselves. This will give the patient a sense of independence and productivity. Never push a patient to do something they may not be able. This will only lead to a sense of failure and guilt.

You cannot leave the patient before 911 arrives, it is your duty to do all you can for the patient before 911 arrives. You can call the supervisor later when the patient has been receiving by the emergency health care providers.

This patient is experiencing low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia. The nurses should give her a glass of orange juice. This will raise her blood sugar, and give her a chance to recover without taking insulin. Insulin is probably one of the reasons this is happening. She may have delayed a meal but still taken her insulin or has gone too long without her insulin.

The reasons that a diabetic would develop hypoglycemia are varied, but one of the main reasons would be because the patient is taking too much insulin and she’s not keeping up with her sugar intakes. Another reason, as stated earlier, could be simply that she skipped a meal or delayed it so she could finish her errands, which ran longer than expected in this case.
