I am writing a nursing process paper on a 63yo Caucasian male who was admitted to the hospital for an abscess on the mid section of his forehead. He also has cellulitis on the surrounding tissue of the abscess. He is non compliant with his diet, over weight, does not exercise and he smokes a pack and a half of cigarettes a day. He was diagnosed with diabetes 6 years ago.
On the trajectory continuum I placed him at the acute phase due to complications from the chronic illness that required him to be hospitalized..
Also, when he was hospitalized, his blood glucose was 176. His blood glucose was 384 the next day. He stated that his sugar goes up and down like that all the time.
I am looking for some good interventions for this patient. Can anyone give me some idea's?
