URN: QUT174806 | PATIENT: JANKOVIC, Ivan Janos This case study is based on Mr Ivan Jankovic who is 78 years old. He is admitted for a left total hip replacement. He undergoes surgery and is now three days post-operative, in the orthopaedic ward. NSB335 Assessment 3 Page 2 of 8 Caring for a patient post-operatively with arthritis and multiple co-morbidities. Setting the scene Background- social: Mr Jankovic is 78 years old and has enjoyed good health over his lifetime. He moved to Australia in his late teens following the communist uprising in his home country in Eastern Europe in the late 1950s. His education was disrupted, and he has worked in a variety of skilled and semi-skilled jobs that have required manual labour at times, retiring 12 years ago. He says his English is good. Ivan lives independently with his wife in a retirement living unit. His wife Marla is 74 years old and is in good health but recently had a fall and suffered a # wrist that required surgery. She is unable to drive for 8 weeks. They have 2 children one daughter lives a fair distance away and works full time in a high-pressure job. Their son lives interstate and visits infrequently. They report having a lot of friends and social contact in the retirement village, but their friends are all elderly and are unable to assist at all. Epidemiology / pathophysiology of disease processes The National Health Priority Areas (NHP) of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal conditions, Mental Health Disorders, Cardiovascular Disease, and Injury Prevention and Control were established with the aim of improving health outcomes in these areas. They were established in response to the World Health Organizations global strategy of Health for all by the year 2000. They are also the areas with the highest economic and health burden for Australians; this assessment considers the following NHP areas in relation to a case (Ivan Jankovic): Musculoskeletal conditions are conditions of the bones, muscles and their attachments (e.g. joints and ligaments). Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis are the most commonly occurring musculoskeletal conditions. They have substantial influence on a persons quality of life and impose a heavy economic burden on the community (AIHW, 2018). Injuries are adverse effects on the human body. They are a significant source of preventable illness, disability and premature death in Australia (AIHW, 2018). Mental Health Disorders relate to behaviours and conditions which interfere with social functioning and capacity to negotiate daily life. They can occur acutely at times of illness (AIHW, 2018). Obesity is when the energy consumed from food and drink is greater than the energy used, fat is deposited on the body, which over time can lead to obesity. Obesity increases the risk of many other chronic and potentially lethal diseases (AIHW, 2018). NSB335 Assessment 3 Page 3 of 8 Your Task: Use the Clinical Reasoning Cycle (CRC) on the following pages to review the nursing priorities in relation to the care of Ivan. Consider the CRC on the following pages and following your work on the modules that encompass the NHP and National Health and Quality Safety (NHQHS) Standards, you should be able to answer the workbook questions. This task will assist you to critically think about typical clinical situations that will arise when you are a Registered Nurse and you will be required to assess and make clinical decisions for your patients. When you have done this, answer the questions at the end of this workbook and submit into Turnitin in the provided template. NSB335 Assessment 3 Page 4 of 8 Now we shall step through the CRC in relation to Ivans case to prepare you for the workbook assessment questions. Watch the video At home Gain an initial impression of your patient Consider Ivans situation, both socially and health wise. What is your initial view of this patient? Consider Ivans osteoarthritis and obesity and how these may be linked. Ivan is at risk of injury both at home and when he comes to hospital. Consider why and what can be done in these settings to prevent injury. Further background information Mr Jankovic is 78 years old and has enjoyed good health over his lifetime. He has gained a lot of weight over the past few years and has severe osteoarthritis in his hips. He also has had resection of a prostatic cancer that has no current treatment and has residual prostatamegaly. He has occasional angina, high blood pressure and obstructive sleep apnoea, using a CPAP machine infrequently as it dries his mouth and nose and the noise annoys his wife. Past medical history Osteoarthritis (diagnosed 10 years ago) Mild left cardiac failure and occasional angina (diagnosed 2 years ago) Hypertension (diagnosed 5 years ago) Frequent gout Surgical history: Internal fixation left tibia and fibula following motor cycle accident at age 21years Appendectomy at age 23 years Resection prostatic carcinoma (7 years ago) Medications: Omeprazole 20mg nocte Frusemide 20mg mane Isosorbide Nitrate 60mg mane Atorvastatin 40mg mane Prazosin 5mg mane Panadol osteo tds Brufen 400mg mane Glycerol Trinitrate 5mg S/L prn Colchicine 0.5mg prn Allopurinol 300 mg mane Now watch the videos of Mr Jankovic- 1. Waiting room: 2. Pre-operative preparation checklist: 3. Pre-operative preparation medication: 4. Patients conversation after pre-operative checklist NSB335 Assessment 3 Page 5 of 8 (a) Review current information (b) Gather new information (c) Recall knowledge (A&P, ethics, law, cultural safety) Consider the pre-operative phase. What are the issues here with the communication? What may be contributing to this? Ensure you understand the co-morbidities Ivan has presented with and how they may complicate a surgical recovery. Now watch the video below and review the clinical documents for Mr Jankovic. Day 3 post-operative Handover Nursing Documents: 1. Pre-operative checklist [document link] 2. Nursing Notes [document link] 3. Med Chart [document link] 4. Observation chart [document link] 5. Neurovascular obs [document link] For your convenience a transcript of the handover is provided at the end of this workbook. Interpret data what does it all mean? It is important to consider the potential inter-relationships between mental health, cardio vascular, obesity, musculoskeletal problems and injury prevention. What are the general nursing problems for patients undergoing major orthopaedic surgery? What do you anticipate may be post-operative complications for this gentleman given his co-morbidities? Synthesize all information that has been collected and processed. You need to consider Ivans priority problems and any actual or strong potential problems he may experience while in hospital, based on your assessment of him and your knowledge of the pathophysiology of his presenting condition and co-morbidities. Consider the pre-operative, acute post-operative and recovery phase. NSB335 Assessment 3 Page 6 of 8 As a nurse, what are your desired outcomes for Ivan? Now you have identified his problems, you need to identify your goals of care for each problem using the SMART acronym. What action/interventions will you do? The next step is to consider what you will do and ensure your nursing interventions suit the context and are evidence based. Assess the effectiveness of actions Now think about your interventions and how you will evaluate them. What have you learned from this experience? Now consider what you have learnt and what you need to follow up with.

(4 marks) Transcript of nursing handover (video 5) Situation: Mr Jankovic is a 74 year old and is day 3 post-operative left total hip replacement. He has an IV cannula still in place in his left hand. Background: Ivan has a history of osteoarthritis, prostatic malignancy resected, hypertension and mild left heart failure with infrequent angina. He also uses CPAP infrequently for sleep apnoea. Post-operative he has not been himself and was a bit aggressive and confused. Assessment: His neurovascular obs are intact. The toes of that left leg have been pink and warm with full movement and sensation, pulses normal. His left hip wound remains intact with no strike-through. He has been doing deep breathing and leg exercises. He has been resting quietly. At 1400 hours vital signs: BP 174/80 mmHg; HR 96 BPM; RR 18 BPM; O2 sats 98%; Temperature 36.9 degrees. I noticed that he wasnt very responsive to his wife, Marla, this morning and he refused his tablets, so I think he is still confused. His wife just told me she is having trouble understanding him. I have not got round to calling the doctor yet. Recommendations: I think you should do a more comprehensive assessment on him and call the doctor. I am a bit concerned but I have been too busy to do a full assessment.
