Patient Profile M.S. is an 81-yr-old woman who came to the United States from In

Patient Profile M.S. is an 81-yr-old woman who came to the United States from India 4 years ago with her son and daughter-in-law and their 4 children. She has several health problems, including coronary artery disease, hypertension, osteoarthritis in her right hip, and diabetes. Her daughter-in-law is the primary caregiver and often brings her to the urban community health clinic for a variety of health-related problems. Recently, M.S. has been having memory problems. The entire family comes to the health clinic with M.S. Because English is a second language (Hindustani is their first language) for all the adult family members, the staff relies on the oldest granddaughter to interpret. At this clinic visit, M.S. is presenting with shortness of breath. Through her granddaughter’s interpretation, she tells the nurse that she is having trouble walking up the stairs in the apartment building. The nurse does the history and assessment, checks her blood glucose (which is within normal limits), and tells her that she should get more exercise. Given M.S.’s memory problems and limited English, the nurse does not complete a 24-hour dietary recall or teach her or the family about diabetes management. M.S. is scheduled for an appointment with the cardiologist for an evaluation of her hypertension and heart disease. Two weeks later, when she sees the cardiologist, her shortness of breath is much worse, and she is having chest pain. She is hospitalized immediately. Meanwhile, the clinic supervisor is completing a chart audit for the clinic’s quality review program. She is reviewing M.S.’s chart and notices that, although she has been a patient in the clinic for 3 years, she has never received instructions on blood glucose monitoring or general diabetes management. The clinic has a nurse diabetes educator who teaches individual patients and groups of patients with diabetes. The clinic manager reviews these findings with the nurse and asks why she has not recommended that M.S. see the diabetes educator. The nurse states that with M.S.’s memory problems and the language barrier, she assumed that M.S. and her family would not benefit from the consultation.

You are caring for an 82-year-old woman who has been hospitalized for several weeks for burns that she sustained on her lower legs during a cooking accident. Before the time of her admission, she lived alone in a small apartment. The patient reported on admission that she has no surviving family. Her support system appears to be other elders who live in her neighborhood. Because of transportation difficulties, most of them are unable to visit frequently. One of her neighbors has reported that she is caring for the patient’s dog, a Yorkshire terrier. As you care for this woman, she begs you to let her friend bring her dog to the hospital. She says that none of the other nurses have listened to her about such a visit. As she asks you about this, she begins to cry and tells you that they have never been separated. You recall that the staff discussed their concern about this woman’s well-being during report that morning. They said that she has been eating very little and seems to be depressed.
1. Based on Nightingale’s work, identify specific interventions that you would provide in caring for this patient.
2. Describe what action, if any, you would take regarding the patient’s request to see her dog. Discuss the theoretical basis of your decision and action based on your understanding of Nightingale’s work.
3. Describe and discuss what nursing diagnoses you would make and what interventions you would initiate to address the patient’s nutritional status and emotional well-being.
4. As the patient’s primary nurse, identify and discuss the planning you would undertake regarding her discharge from the hospital. Identify members of the discharge team and their roles in this process. Describe how you would advocate for the patient based on Nightingale’s observations and descriptions of the role of the nurse.

Discussion: Treatment of Neurocognitive Disorders Neurocognitive disorders (NCD)

Discussion: Treatment of Neurocognitive Disorders
Neurocognitive disorders (NCD) such as delirium,  dementia, and amnestic disorders are more prevalent in older adults. As  the population ages and as life expectancy in the United States  continues to increase, the incidence of these disorders will continue to  increase. Cognitive functioning such as memory, language, orientation,  judgment, and problem solving are affected in clients with NCDs. Caring  for someone with a neurocognitive disorder is not only challenging for  the clinician, but also stressful for the family. The PMHNP needs to  consider not only the client but also the “family as client.”  Collaboration with primary care providers and specialty providers is  essential. Anticipatory guidance also becomes extremely important.
In this Discussion, you will integrate several  sources of knowledge specific to NCDs as you discuss evidenced-based  therapies used to treat these disorders.
To prepare for this Discussion:
By Day 5 of Week 7, your Instructor will have assigned you a  neurocognitive disorder, which will be the focus for your initial post  for this Discussion. :  
Review the Learning Resources.
NEUROCOGNITIVE DISORDER ASSIGNED: Neurocognitive Disorder Due to Alzheimer’s Disease 
By Day 3
Explain the diagnostic criteria for your assigned neurocognitive disorder.
Explain the evidenced-based psychotherapy and psychopharmacologic treatment for your assigned neurocognitive disorder.
Identify the risks of different types of therapy and explain how  the benefits of the therapy that might be achieved might outweigh the  risks.

Maintaining your own integrity as a professional nurse is an essential part of your career. Despite knowing the consequences for an academic integrity infraction, why do some students still falsify their work?
What are the most challenging APA formatting issues for you? Why do you find these areas so challenging? What resources will you use to overcome these challenges?
1. getting the references and using them properly are challenging for me

insight to your post.
As rightly pointed out, although there are no known causes of developmental coordination disorder; however, there are various theories about its possible causes. Some theories attribute the disorder to biological causes such as prenatal complications as fetal malnutrition. According to Versfeld (n.d.), recent research has shown that the underlying reason for the movement difficulties children with developmental coordination disorder experience is related to atypical brain development that affects how the brain forms connections between different parts of the brain when learning a new skill. Thus, the child’s ability to use information from the senses to plan, adapt, and control movements are impacted. Research has also suggested that children with developmental coordination disorder may have difficulty planning a motor task, organizing movements, performing a coordinated action, and adjusting movements when demands change.
There is a link between developmental coordination disorder, attention, and anxious nature. Children with developmental coordination disorder have an overly cautious, fearful, or anxious temperament with the temperament trait known as behavioral inhibition (BI), which affects a child’s behavior, attention skills, and ability to take on challenges and learn new skills. Furthermore, some children with poor coordination also have generalized joint hypermobility, which is associated with a cautious or fearful nature. According to Versfeld (n.d.), some behavioral inhibition and anxiety behaviors include:
Cautious or fearful response to an event or situation that is new, challenging, or unpredictable.
Poor attention and emotional self-regulation-tantrums and meltdowns, distractible, fight or flight response to challenges.
Avoidance as a strategy to manage negative arousal and anxiety.
Intolerance of failure; do not like making mistakes, perfectionism.
Fear of heights, loud and unpredictable noises, busy environments, and uncertainty.
Social anxiety and separation anxiety.
There are assessment instruments for developmental coordination disorder. For instance, the developmental Coordination Disorder Questionnaire (DCD-Q) identifies motor coordination problems in children from eight years to 14 and a half. Another screening tool is the Movement Assessment Battery for Children (MABC) (Sadock, Sadock, & Ruiz, 2014, pg. 3539), which is my preference because it indicates gross and fine motor skills for children four years to 16 years of age. Furthermore, MABC has a checklist with a reliable instrument within sections and overall. Since the nature and severity of issues in developmental coordination disorder is broad, an instrument for screening children with developmental coordination disorder must be able to measure a wide variety of motor skills (Sadock et al., 2014, pg. 3539). Another test to consider is the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency for Identifying Children with Motor Impairment (BOTMP). The BOTMP assesses motor skills in children from four and a half years to 14 and a half years old. The BOTMP provides a comprehensive index motor skill (Sadock et al., 2014, pg. 3539).
