Academic guidelines- 1.5 line spacing, assignment cover page, HEADINGS are to be used.
Part Two-Nursing Care
Highlight the nursing care for this patient.
Choose the main ACUTE nursing aspects for your patient, for example the case study on pancreatitis you may need to cover the main acute nursing in the first 2 hours of care,
The lectures will identify what these are, and focus on the acute nursing interventions you would provide
For example- oxygenation and perfusion/ pain management/ ICC care and management- this would fit with the pneumothorax case study. For each of these discuss how you would ?nurse? this patient. In the tutorials the type of content is well covered. Please attend tutorials?
Remember to focus on nursing care not all medical treatment.
Again this section should be 1200 words.
Note: I have not included an introduction and conclusion. This is not an essay. It?s a nursing report, where in the first section- you could almost relate these to progress notes on your patient. You can use acceptable abbreviations ONLY. For example the headings CNS, CVS, and BP. This assessment can use some point form here, but include sentences where needed. Eg ?On inspection of the chest it was noted there was equal rise and fall of the chest?.
Have a look at the marking criteria as this will help you to fully understand what is required.
Safe assign will be used for this task to reduce plagiarism.
Ask questions in tutorial.
