Choose one of the following case studies as the focus of your Cultural Case Study: Purnell’s Model for Cultural Competence domains paper:

Case Study #1:
You are a nurse in the emergency room. The EMTs bring in a Caucasian (non-Hispanic) female who was found unconscious two blocks from the hospital. Patient’s initial assessment included blood sugar of 55. After the EMT’s initial treatment, she became responsive. She stated she is a 32-year old military veteran with a history of mental illness due to post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and suffers from Diabetes.
She is homeless and reports she has not eaten in 48 hours. The patient appears emaciated. It is apparent she has not bathed in some time and her clothes are showing significant wear and tear. Her shoes have holes in them and she is not wearing socks. She carries a backpack with her and states it contains everything she owns. She will not allow anyone to touch the backpack and will not let it out of her sight. When asked, the patient tells you she moved to the Midwest in the hopes of finding work two years ago after a medical discharge from the military. She states she had a job waiting for her when she arrived, but was quickly let go when the company closed due to financial mismanagement. She has not found another job. She has not sought care from the Veteran’s Administration, though she does qualify for care under their provisions. However, she has no mode of transportation to reach the hospital and it is a two-hour drive away.

Case Study #2:
You are a hospital nurse on the 24-observation unit.
