Not really....not getting a open painful decibitus is important......so her immobility can lead to skin breakdown pain and discomfort. Comfort and DIGNITY
are most important now. Most risks should be placed after actually present diagnoses.
Like......Readiness for enhanced Comfo
A pattern of ease, relief and transcendence in physical, psychospiritual, environmental, and/or social dimensions that can be strengthened
Expresses desire to enhance comfort; expresses desire to enhance feelings of contentment; expresses desire to enhance relaxation; expresses desire to enhance resolution of complaints
or........Risk for compromised Human Dignity
At risk for perceived loss of respect and honor
Note: Honoring an individual's dignity is imperative and consists of the following elements:
- Physical comfort (bathing, positioning, pain and symptom relief, touch, and a peaceful environment). Encompasses aspects of privacy, respect, and autonomy. Also includes staff expertise, effectiveness, and safety of care
- Psychosocial comfort (listening, sharing fears, giving permission, presence, not dying alone, family support and presence). Includes elements of client participation and choice. Clients feel at ease, safe, and protected; neither intimidated nor threatened
- Spiritual comfort (sharing love and caring words, being remembered, validating their lives, praying with and for, reading scripture and Bible, clergy and referral to other providers [i.e., hospice]) (Touhy, Brown & Smith, 2005; Groenewoud et al, 2008)
- Risk Factors
Cultural incongruity; disclosure of confidential information; exposure of the body; inadequate participation in decision making; loss of control of body functions; perceived dehumanizing treatment; perceived humiliation; perceived intrusion by clinicians; perceived invasion of privacy; stigmatizing label; use of undefined medical terms
I hope this helps.
