Model of reflection
I have preferred the Gibbs (1988) model of reflection to reflect upon the particular incident. It is an influential theory on reflective practice.

I was doing my late shift and there was a patient by name Ronald, aged sixty two, who was taken care by one of the other employee in the house. I found that the resident was not given proper contemplation once he demanded or requested for something he looked-for. I came to know that, it was because he occasionally went vulnerable, but not always to the employees, other service users and to himself. Thereby he went on screaming for his needs and I noticed no proper care was given to him. It was during one of those days that, the said resident was on the way to the washroom, where he found another service user in between. At that time I was feeding a resident and within no time Ronald moved to the other resident and punched him on his face. There was nothing else needed for the situation to be worse. I called the senior staff as I was not experienced in handling the situation. The reality was that, at the staffs were having their dinner in other rooms, not taking care of the service users allocated to them. After a minute one of the senior staffs came with me and made Ronald calm, and he was taken to the bathroom, and I took the other...
