7. Key Assessment Findings

7.1. Neuro: Alert, Not oriented to Time, difficulties with short term memory, able to follow simple commands Cardiac: +S1S2, no murmur or thrills, +2 Peripheral Pulses, no JVD, skin WPD, cap refill <2sec Resp: Clear BS LUL RUL, Diminished BS RML LLL RLL, no adventitious BS, no accessory muscle use, DOE GI: Soft, nontender, round, no noticeable abnormalities, Mass RLQ, neg rebound tenderness, hyperactive BS all 4 quadrants, last BM 1/30/12 GU: dysuria, increased frequency w/dribbling, no odor, yellow/clear urine, no burning Integumentary: Warm Dry Intact, no noticeable abnormalities, no edema Musculoskeletal: Limited ROM, unsteady gait with walker assistance, general weakness in extremities (baseline) HEENT: symmetrical, pupils PERRLA, difficulty hearing, glasses for reading, no discharge or other abnormalites noted

8. Psychosocial

8.1. Retired and lives in an assisted living facility, son nearby. Living situation being reevaluated, considering NH. PMH of mild dimentia

9. Risk Factors

9.1. Age, Cardiac Hx, Reduced Mobility, PMH: A-Fib, CAD, Mild Dimentia, HTN, Osteoporosis, CABG, Reversed Colostomy, NSTEMI, Chronic LT Hemi-Diaphragm Elevation

10. Discharge Planning

10.1. Pt will need to follow-up with her PCP or cardiologist. She currently lives at an ALF, but requires more assistance than offered there. Social services needs to be contacted to investigate possibly transitioning to a NH and for funding.

11. Management

11.1. IV NS .9% 1000ml, 80ml/Hr Bedrest per RN order Bedpan for bathroom needs HOB elevated 30degrees to facilitate breathing Bed Alarm Medications VS q4 Turn/Rotate q2h

12. Patient Education

12.1. Reinforcement need to educate pt on importance of remaining calm and resting to avoid aggravating her condition. Education on her condition important. Pt has mild dementia and difficulties with short term memory. Her son lives nearby, getting him involved and education for him is important.

13. Goals

13.1. Nursing Intervention 1

13.1.1. Palpate peripheral pulses noting rate, regulartity, amplitude, and symmetry. Document abnormalities and/or deficits.

13.1.1.1. Rationale: Differences in equality, rate, and regularity of pulses are indicative of the effect of altered cardiac output on systemic and peripheral circulation

13.2. Nursing Intervention 2

13.2.1. Provide calm and quiet environment. Review limitations of activities during acute phase.

13.2.1.1. Reduces stimulation and release of stress-related catecholamines, which can aggravate dysrhythmias and vasocaonstriction, increasing myocardial workload.

13.2.1.2. Outcome: Pt will verbalize understanding. Pt will limit activity, remain calm, and not try to get out of bed. Staff will monitor pt frequently to assist with bathroom needs.

14. Priority Nursing Dx

14.1. Risk for fall r/t decreased cardiac output r/t altered electrical conduction, reduced ventricular filling, and increased O2 demand aeb past hx of syncope.
