Module 06 Assignment – Designing a Care Map
Purpose of Assignment
Assist students to develop a care plan that includes safe discharge information for a client with musculoskeletal trauma.
· Explain components of multidimensional nursing care for clients with musculoskeletal disorders.
Mr. Harry Roost is a 78-year old male being discharge 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 nurse 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 have 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, you will need to include three nursing diagnoses, outcomes, and nursing interventions with rationale.
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.
