Oh boy I am excited about being back in school and terrified as well. I have been a LPN since 2009 and only briefly were we introduced to Careplans. Well here we go and today on the first day I get present with a scenario if I even want to call it that. Here is the info I was presented with.
I have an Elderly patient 86 y/o fell at home. Patient is confused to place and time scheduled for surgery tomorrow.
With the info I have one nursing diagnosis I want to use is:
Impaired Mobility related to muscular skeletal impairment AEB fractured hip.
*Regain/maintain mobility at the highest possible level.
*Patient demonstrates the use of adaptive devices to increase mobility
1. Provide and assist patient with mobility means of wheelchair, walker as soon as possible and instruct safe use of mobility aids.
2. Assist with self care activities.
3. Execute passive or active assistive ROM to all extremities.
1. Early mobility reduces complication of bed rest (phlebitis) and promotes healing. Learning the correct way to use aids is important to maintain optimal mobility and patient safety.
2. Improves muscle strength and circulation, enhances patient control in situation, and promotes self-directed wellness.
3. Exercise enhances increased venous return, prevents stiffness, and maintains muscle strength and stamina.
Can someone tell me how this looks.
Tanks in advance Crystal
