Feedback:
When a colleague is intoxicated while on duty, the nurse should immediately inform the nursing supervisor, who may take necessary action. It would be an irresponsible action if the nurse tells the colleague to take rest. Likewise, informing a physician is not the appropriate response. The nurse should not ignore the incident and simply observe the colleague because client care may be affected.
