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?
