Arthur is a 71-year-old widower who has a history of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. His mobility in his left hip joint has been gradually deteriorating and has now significantly reduced. This is affecting his ability to walk, and it is causing him daily pain, for which he is taking Tylenol.
It has been suggested that Arthur considers a hip replacement procedure, but Arthur is concerned about the invasive surgery because he worries that he will not be able to take care of himself. He does not want to be a burden on his daughter who is busy with her job and taking care of her children. Arthur would like to stay in his own home, and is anxious about losing his independence.
Arthur has been drinking a little more alcohol than usual to help him cope with the pain and to help him get to sleep at night. Arthur has lost touch with most of his friends, as his wife used to arrange their social activities. He has also stopped going to church because he feels that God let him down when his wife passed away.
A Universal Experince...
- Obtaining History
--> allergies
--> ensuring consent form is properly filled out
- Reducing patient anxiety
: a mechanical bone disorder that is characterized by compromised bone strength predisposing to an increased risk of fracture
Education & Encouragement of preventative measures
Protective measures to prevent fracture (fall prevention)
--> Hip protectors, Steady ambulation/proper use of aids, non-slip materials on floors

Why should Arthur have a hip replacement?
-Healthy people tend to recover better than people who are not healthy
-Problematic joints can lead to other medical problems
- Painful joints can cause patients to become sedentary
- Sedentary individuals are at risk for gaining weight, which can lead to the development of cardiovascular problems
-Arthur will have a decrease in pain, increase in mobility, be able to perform activities of daily living, and have improved quality of life

Informed Consent

- providing the appropriate information to the patient (risks of treatment, alternative treatment options, associated facts and risk factors, treatment outcome, risks of not having the treatment
- patient's ability to understand the relevant information and appreciate the consequences of the decision
- patient's right to come to a decision without force, coercion or manipulation from others
When these 3 components are met, the patient is able to provide informed consent for medical treatment (Kozier & Erb, 2010).
is the voluntary agreement to some act or purpose made by a capable individual.
The conditions for consent include
According to the CRPNBC,
"Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPNs) have both legal and ethical obligations regarding consent for proposed care, treatment and research".
1) The client or substitute decision-maker being adequately informed
2) The client or substitite decision-maker being capable of giving or refusing consent,
3) There being no concern, fraud or misrepresentation.
The Principles of Consent
if the client is capable of giving consent.
client's rights to make decisions about the management of their own health care
information in a timely and appropriate manner, taking into account the individual's abilities, age, culture, language and preferences
clients with the information to decide about proposed health care
the right of clients to seek further information or anotheropinion, and to
others in the decision-making and consent process
the right of client to refuse or withdraw consent at any times, even if the refusal will result in death, provided they are capable of doing so and there is no legislation that removes that right.
-It is
not appropriate to

take responsibility
for obtaining consent
for care or treatment provided by another healthcare professional
- RPNs who participate in the delivery of treatment by other health professionals
that consent has been given for the proposed health care, and
clients understand the information provided by others

College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of B.C. (2013)

Signs that you're ready for a HIP REPLACEMENT!
- Hip/groin pain that disrupts sleep
- Pain that limits activities of daily living
- Pain that limits activities that give pleasure
- Other treatments have not provided relief
Factors to Consider
Overall Health
- the ability to tolerate anesthesia, surgery, and the recovery process
- able to rehabilitate, and use mobility devices for recovery
- the person's understanding of procedure

- Family history
- Age (Over 55)
- Gender (Women)
- Previous injury to the joint
- Obesity
- Overuse (Repetitive actions of the joint)
- Poor posture

Black and Hawks (2009) states the the goals for medical management of osteoarthritis include 1) pain management with improvement or maintenance of mobility, 2) functional independence, and 3) maintenance of quality of life.

- Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
- NSAID's (Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Celecoxib, etc.)
- Corticosteroid injections
- Opioids

- Osteotomy
- Arthrodesis
- Total joint arthroplasty (replacement)
Most of the time osteoporosis isn’t discovered until after a fracture has happened, often a vertebral compression fracture (which causes shortened stature and dorsal kyphosis). Clinical manifestations of osteoporosis can include:
- Decreased bone density
- Progressive vertebral deformities
- Changes in dentition
- Frequent fractures

However, these manifestations don’t occur until the damage has already been done, so it is crucial to prevent the loss of peak bone mass (highest bone mass attained).

- Low bone mass
- Personal history of fracture as an adult
- History of fragility fracture in a first-degree relative
- Low body weight (less than about 128 pounds)
- Current cigarette smoking
- Use of corticosteroid therapy for more than 3 months
- Estrogen deficiency
- Inadequate physical activity
- Lifelong, low intake of dietary calcium
Medical management of osteoporosis focuses on preventative measures individuals can take to decrease the chance of bone loss and fragility fractures, however pharmacological interventions can be used when preventative measures aren't enough:
- Bisphosphonates (eg. Fosamax)
- Selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMS’s) (eg. Raloxifene)
- Hormone therapy (eg. estrogen/progesterone)
- Calcitonin
- Calcium and vitamin D supplements
Intrapersonal Stressors
- Pain (chronic)
- Lack of Sleep
- Decreased Mobility
- Increased Alcohol use
personal Stressors
- Anxiety regarding upcoming surgery
- Anxiety about his loss of independence
- Anxiety about being a burden to daughter
personal Stressors
- Lack of emotional support system
- Loneliness
personal Stressors
- Lack of purpose and meaning
- Doubting faith
personal Stressors
- Does not want to be a burden to daughter
personal Stressors
- Isolation --> Lives alone
- Lacks supportive friendships
personal Stressors
- Worried about maintaining home
- Worried about caring for self post surgery
personal Stressors
What will it mean to have to rely on someone?
personal Stressors
Lack of social support
personal Stressors
Loss of daily routine

The Consent Process
RPNs must
know and understand their agency policies
on consent and follow them. Effective communication is essential to ensure that the client’s own health care decisions are understood, expressed and respected by everyone involved. Strengthen the communication process by giving explanations in ways best understood by the client and by using a combination of strategies. These might include :
1) Give verbal explanations.
2) Use visual aids and handouts.
3) Ask clients for feedback about what they understand.
4) Ask clients if they have any questions.
5) Engage family or friends who are supporting the client to help the client understand.
6) Use plain language and age-appropriate terminology.
7) Use the services of a qualified interpreter if a language barrier exists.

College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of B.C. (2013)

Also known as degenerative joint disease. It is a chronic, progressive process in which new tissue is produced in response to joint insults and cartilage degeneration, and is the most commonly seen type of arthritis. It can be classified as either idiopathic or secondary.
Osteoporosis is a metabolic bone disorder that is characterized by compromised bone strength predisposing to an increased risk of fracture.
Obtaining Consent
- This is a
legal requirement
- Treating a patient
without obtaining consent
can lead to
battery or negligence charges
- Obtaining informed consent for medical and surgical treatments is the
responsibility of the physician performing the care

Psychiatric Nurse's Role
This is the surgical replacement of the hip joint with an artificial prosthesis that aims to improve the individuals pain and mobility.
It is one the most widely performed orthopedic procedures, and approx. 70% of those cases are due to osteoarthritis - it is indicated when conservative treatments fail (i.e. weight reduction, rest + exercise balance, NSAID’s, etc), severe pain, and a significant decrease in the functionality of the client.

- Deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism
- Dislocation
- Infection

- There are
no laws
prohibiting the nurse from being part of the information giving process
but this is not the nurse's role
- It is often the nurse’s role to
witness the giving of informed consent
confirm that the client was informed and did understand the information

College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of B.C. (2013)
Education is the main point of intervention when caring for an individual with osteoarthritis; important areas to educate the client on are:
- Pain management (multi-modular approach)
- Rest-activity balance
- Nutrition and weight-loss
- Self-care strategies
- Education and encouragement of preventative measure
- Increase calcium intake (dairy products, soy products, tofu, sardines, etc)
- Increase vitamin D intake (fortified products, fish, liver, and egg yolk, etc)
- Weight-bearing exercises
- Pain control
- Protective measures to prevent fractures (fall prevention)
- Hip protectors
- Steady ambulation/proper use of aids
- Non-slip materials on floors

What are the
determinants in Arthur's life?
1) Housing
2) Education
3) Healthcare
4) Daughter
5) Friend
- Age
- Social exclusion since wife's death
- Social Safety nets: friends are also increasing in age
- Fear of being a burden on family & friends
- Lack of knowledge
- Food insecurity
- Limited Income
- Worsening pain
- Limitation of movement
- Crepitus (grating, crackling, or popping sounds)
- Stiffness that increases with activity and decreases with rest
- Possible joint enlargement

Osteoarthritis can be confirmed through radiographic imaging that shows changes to the joint and bone - this includes the presence of osteophytes and a narrowed joint space caused by erosion of the cartilage.

What can we,
As Psychiatric Nurses do?
1) Know the services in the community
where you live or work
2) Encourage clients to reach out to
family and friends for support, if possible
3) Be aware of client's preference
4) Be aware of client's other medical issues and be aware of all their variables
Effectively Teaching Older Adults
1) Vision
2) Hearing
3) Energy Level & Attention
4) Information Processing
& Memory
Hip Precautions

When your patient returns to your unit:
- Reposition patient
- Check ABC’s
- Reinforce pre op teaching ie: deep breathing and coughing 5-10X/hour
Neurovascular assessment
- Fall precautions
- multi-modular approach to pharmacological intervention

What areas are important to include when educating a client with osteoarthritis in regards to mangement of their diagnosis?
The incidence of dislocation is highest in the first year after arthroplasty (1-4%). 50%-70% of dislocations occur within the first 5 weeks to 3 months postoperatively (Werner & Brown, 2012). Precautions must be followed for 3 months unless otherwise specified by the surgeon. Hip replacement dislocations occur when the ball of the ball-and-socket replacement comes out of the socket.
