Im having trouble with my rationale. I worked with a 94 yo female in a long term facility last week. I got my care plan back and the only thing she didnt like was my rationale for "assess BP q shift". Heres my data:
2 assist with t-belt
History of fall
My daignosis was Impaired Physical Mobility r/t joint stiffness aeb 2 assist with t-belt.
My rationale for "assess BP q shift was "Orthosatic Hypotension as a result of cardio changes, disease, and medication effects are comon in the elderly. Orthostatic hpyotension can cause diziness, and light headedness. Assessing BP can indicate orthostatic hypotension, and impaired physical mobility."
Reading back over it I can see where I veered from the daignosis. She wrote "Relate this back to physical mobility joint stiffness". Can someone give me and idea as to the rationale for BP r/t Impaired physical Mobility? I dont want someone to write a rationale for me, just some direction. Thanks!
