trauma.
Course Competency

components of multidimensional nursing care for clients with musculoskeletal
disorders.
Instructions
Mr. Harry Roost is a 78-year-old
male being discharged after a fracture of his right tibia and fibula. He has a long leg cast that he will need to
wear for the next 8 weeks. The nurses
have observed him using a hanger to scratch the skin under the cast. The nurses have reminded him each time that
he is not to put anything down his cast.
He also sits on the side of the bed for long periods with his leg in a
dependent position. He also gets up to go
to the bathroom without calling for help.
The staff observed him hopping to the bathroom without using his
crutches.
Develop a care map for Mr. Roost
using the template directly after these instructions. Include information important
for his discharge home. For this assignment, include the following: assessment
and data collection (including disease process, common labwork/diagnostics,
subjective, objective, and health history data), three NANDA-I approved nursing
diagnoses, one SMART goal for each nursing diagnosis, and two nursing
interventions with rationale for each SMART goal for a client with a musculoskeletal disorder.
Use at least two scholarly
sources to support your care map. Be sure to cite your sources in-text and on a
reference page using APA format.
