Myringotomy and insertion of grommets as day surgery: a case study

2020, Daly, Michelle, Howe, Rachel

This evidence based case study will follow a two-year-old child through the nursing assessment on the day of their elective surgery at the children’s hospital; for myringotomy and insertion of grommets under general anaesthesia; through to his arrival accompanied by a parent at the operating room doors. Potential pre-operative problems will be identified and two problems with nursing interventions will be discussed in detail. This case study is based on a real case with any identifiers removed as well as a fictitious name being introduced to preserve anonymity.
