    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 clientís experiencing back pain. Mr. Jasperís pain resulted from a fall from a ladder 48 hours ago. Mr. Sternís 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.

    We are not going to do your homework for you. Tell us what you have so far. We don't mind helping you, but you gotta help yourself.

    all you need to do is re-read very very carefully your case scenarios... you have the answers there . Use your critical thinking skills and have fun.

    Good luck.
