Note from Student. Home work data tool and concept Map

Patient IntroductionLocation: Orthopedic unit 1555SBAR report from day shift nurse:Situation: Mrs. Jacobson is an 85-year-old white female who was admitted last evening after falling and fracturing her hip. X-rays have been taken and show left intertrochanteric hip fracture. Mrs. Jacobson is scheduled for surgery tomorrow.

Background: Mrs. Jacobson has a 10-year history of osteoporosis, and her daughter reports that recently Mrs. Jacobson has been having dizzy spells.

Assessment: Mrs. Jacobson’s vital signs are stable. Her pain is under control with morphine every 4 hours, and I medicated her at 1400. Her pain level was 2 after the morphine. The skin is intact; color and sensation around the hip area are within normal limits. A Morse Fall Scale assessment was completed on admission, and her score was 45. Fall precautions were implemented.

Recommendation: You will need to reposition Mrs. Jacobson as she needs to be turned every 2 hours. You should perform a focused musculoskeletal assessment, reinforce safety, and provide patient education on fall risk. Assess her pain level and medicate for pain if needed.Fundamentals of Nursing CareLynn, P. (2019).

Clinical paper work-Data Tool and Concept Map

All clinical paperwork is to be completed by the student assigned to the designated patient/resident/client on designated form. Collaborative work or copying another student’s work is not acceptable and will result in a failing grade and student code disciplinary action. The objectives of this course include but are not limited to

· Demonstrate accountability for own competence, performance, and behavior when working with the adult/geriatric patient.

· Collect health data in an organized manner of the adult/geriatric patient at the beginning level.

· Begin to identify educational needs, risk for complications and environmental factors that could impact on the health of the adult/geriatric patient.

· Perform basic psychomotor skills based on current best practices.

· Utilize the nursing process to identify patient needs, prioritize care and compare findings with expected standards in caring for the adult/geriatric patient.

In order to meet the stated objectives all clinical paperwork is to be completed solely by the student that work was assigned to.


Include what you plan to do each hour of the day; bath/am care, vital signs, assessment,

treatments, medications, etc.


State the frequency of vital signs. List a set of base line vital signs for you to compare your results with during the day. **Record vital signs as taken. State shift and day of week due.


Calculate intake and output totals . If fluids are restricted or encouraged, specify the amount. Indicate any drains that need to be included in output and their individual amounts to be added to output.

· Past Medical History: This section is used for you to document all medical diagnoses which could impact you care during your day with this client.

These blocks are to help you think through the client’s current status and why the practitioner is going in a particular direction with their treatment.


This sheet is required on each client you will be taking care of each week. Feel free to print out extra pages when needed (and you will need them).

Select your nursing priority to support your nursing outcome. The priority will come verbatim from the textbook, Nursing Diagnosis priority section.

· Outcome: (The patient will): This is a statement you will develop which will be positive in nature and specific to your client and their limitations, if any. You will also have to include a specific time period in which it will be completed, and it will have to be specifically measurable and realistic.

· **Patient Response to Intervention : This information is provided during or after your day of care and should be a statement of how your client physically, emotionally OR verbally responded to your direct intervention with them. This is not always a verbal response from the client, although on occasion that type of response may be appropriate.

· **Evaluation of Outcome: You will explain your stated outcome was met, partially met or not met. If there is any other response here besides met, you will go on to explain why it could not be met as written and what you could have done differently to have a positive outcome for your client. REMEMBER: If you put not met or partially met here, this does not mean you were not successful. It may mean the situation changed with your client that kept you from meeting this goal and you had to adjust your care to accommodate this change.

NOTE: It is strongly suggested you use these guidelines each time when completing your data tools to make sure you have the minimum required information included.
