caes study scenerios

  1. 0 Hi, please help me. I need help with my case study.

    (1) Mrs. Elliot, an 80-year-old black female, is admitted to a medical unit with a diagnosis of left CVA. She has right-sided weakness, and she cannot turn or walk without using her walker and the assistance of another person. She also has difficulty swallowing and has bowel and bladder incontinence. a.What risk factors, if any, for pressure ulcers does this patient have?
    b.What characteristics/factors should the nurse assess to monitor for a Stage I pressure ulcer?

    C. How should this be accomplished?



    (2) Mr. Jasper and Mr. Stern are client's experiencing back pain. Mr. Jasper's pain resulted from a fall from a ladder 48 hours ago. Mr. Stern's pain has been bothering him for more than 8 months with no known cause.

    a.As the nurse caring for both clients, how might you anticipate differences in assessment and treatment?

    b. What might influence your approach to assessment if Mr. Stern were 39 versus 80 years of age?

    (3) Mr. Wilson is a 51-year-old man who experienced a traumatic injury to his left arm following an industrial accident 24 hours ago. His arm is in a very bulky dressing, and pain is aggravated when he lies on his left side. He has an intravenous line with a continuous infusion of intravenous fluids in his right arm. What nonpharmacological pain relief measures might be helpful for Mr. Wilson?

    I agree with Praiser. If it were a simple question, maybe, but this is just clearly copied and pasted on here.

    Let him talk to a personal injury lawyer about how much of a $$$$$ settlement he will get! (that's non-pharmacologic)....

    Look it up like the rest of us did. There really is no substitute. The time you spent on here would have gotten you pretty far...

    school28, take one scenario and roll some ideas around here, sometimes that helps stimulate those brain cells and you may get some helpful feedback.

    a.What risk factors, if any, for pressure ulcers does this patient have?
    This Pt. is at risk for developing Bed sores because she is unable to turn or walk without assistive devices and assistance for others.
    b.What characteristics/factors should the nurse assess to monitor for a Stage I pressure ulcer?
    The nurse should put the PT. is on a turning schedule Q 2 hrs. and check each time to make sure there is no break in the Pt. skin. Also the Nurse should make sure that the Pt. linens are not soil with urine because of the alkaline in the urine it could cause the skin to brake done faster than usual.

    c.How should this be accomplished?

    (2) Mr. Jasper and Mr. Stern are client's experiencing back pain. Mr. Jasper's pain resulted from a fall from a ladder 48 hours ago. Mr. Stern's pain has been bothering him for more than 8 months with no known cause.

    a.As the nurse caring for both clients, how might you anticipate differences in assessment and treatment?
    Mr. Jaspers pain is recent so I'll give him pain medication, monitor his labs, blood work, Asses his breathing patterns making sure they did not change from bad to worse, be very careful not to cause any more pain for Mr. Jasper due to his recent fall, check with the doctor to see if there is any special precaution I should take with this Pt. As for MR. Stern I would also check lab, possible do ex-ray, ask him when the pain started what activity he was doing could this be deferred pain.
    b. What might influence your approach to assessment if Mr. Stern were 39 versus 80 years of age? Mr. Stern could have an infection or possible passing kidneys stones. He could have picked up something heavy not realizing that he is doing so and not practicing proper body mechanics.

Maybe his spine is not aliened correctly. It could be deferred pain related to his prostate.
