I just don't have the same energy for things. 1707 You completed the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index ( PSQI ) assessment tool, and your interpretation of the patient was correct. 1707 You called the rehab center. Henry has a chronic condition and will have to make life transitions to maximize his declining respiratory function and maintain as much independence as possible. There are signs that he has difficulty coping with the situation. The nurse should be able to recognize these signs and perform appropriate assessments. Using evidence-based standardized assessment tools will help to ensure a comprehensive approach to the assessments. In this case, relevant assessment tools include the Geriatric Depression Scale and the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). Henry is worried about his wife, Ertha, and about whether his daughter-in-law, Betty, will be able to take care of Ertha during his stay at the rehabilitation center. It is important for the nurse to understand that older adults are vulnerable during transitions and should assist the family in accessing knowledge and evaluating resources that can help improve their life situation. Henry and Betty should be involved in making decisions about appropriate changes for him and Ertha (e.g., the discharge to the rehabilitation center and Betty’s ability to take care of Ertha in the meantime). The important life decisions that have to be made are the sources of Henry’s anxiety, and it is important to assist the family with these decisions, address Henry’s and Betty’s concerns, and support them with education about medication, family involvement, discharge plans, and most notably the care and concern for Ertha. During transitions it is also important to coordinate care and ensure continuity of care as the older adult transitions from one care setting to another. Performing medication reconciliation, contacting the receiving facility, and verifying arrangements are important elements in this. [Show More]
