    Nursing care plan

    am a little confused. the way our lecturers have told us was that in a nursing issue u use... due to or related to so i could say: risk of falls due to difficulty in vision and hearing. and nursing goal would be to improve mr. slyvesters vsion and hearing over a period of a month as evidenced by no further record of falls or another one could be: risk of falls due to unsafe environment and poor vision and hearing goal: to promote a safe environment for mr. slyvester in a period of one week and to improve his hearing and visual within a month as eveidenced by no further incident of falls please give me suggestion :)

    UTI Nursing Diagnosis help!

    hey daisy, am also new, but i figured out that by goin to a specified subcription on top will give u an option for new thread. as for your question am just first semester nursing student so please dont take my word for it and consult someone who is an expert in this. from what it looks like i think the major concern will be to work on COPD so probably ineffective breathing pattern? another one could be impaired memory. thanks

    Nursing care plan

    hey all, can someone help me with a nursing care plan:o. am doing first semester nursing:nurse: my case study is: Mr Sylvester is a 78 year old gentleman who presented at the facility accompanied by his daughter (Mrs Martin). He appears to be well dressed though his clothes are creased and there are some stains down the front of his shirt. He has bruises on his forehead and on questioning about these states he had a fall at home yesterday. When asked if he has any other injuries, he shows you bruises on his elbow and knees. He said he has had a "few falls lately" but recovers from them quickly. He lives in his own, three bedroom house by himself. His daughter lives out of town and is concerned about his safety at home. She rings him once a week but finds conversation is difficult over the phone, sometimes he doesn't even answer. She is thinking about the need to have him admitted to a nursing home. As part of your assessment, you visit his house and find a free standing two story house with three steps up to the front veranda. There is a long hall with the living room and kitchen at the end. He states he doesn't use the "formal lounge and dining rooms" except when the family come to visit. The kitchen has a table in the middle of the room. There is a pile of papers, still folded on the table. When asked about these, Mr Sylvester states he can't see well enough to read them anymore. In the family room, his chair is close to the TV and the volume is set at maximum level. The laundry is off the kitchen and there are six stairs down to the back yard. The clothes line is in the middle of the large back yard. The stairs within the house are carpeted and his bedroom has a polished floor with a carpet square beside the bed. He has a bedside table and two chairs in the room and multiple boxes that seem to be full of books, magazines and old papers i was thinkng : 1. visual and auditory sensory disturbed can i use both? 2. falls, risk 3. is there impaired physical mobilty? thanks and any tips for writing a scoring plan?
