Creatinine (0.80-1.40): L 0.41 (down from 0.50) May indicate decreased kidney function. All other values WNL CXR, PA AP, Portable Findings: Trach tube hanging below clavicles and 3 cm above carina. Lung volume decreased. Confluent opacities with right-sided veiling opacity. May indicate infection. Nurse should continue to monitor trach, lung sounds, RR, and SPO2. Interpretation and Synthesis Monitor RR and lung sounds Lung sounds clear bilaterally RR 17 Suction when secretions block airway ~30 mL suctioned Patient expressed relief after suction Observe for signs of respiratory distress Pt did not exhibit signs of respiratory distress (use of accessory muscles, etc.) Cluster care to provide rest periods Pt able to rest between interventions Monitor SPO2, contact resp. if necessary SPO2 did not fall below 90% (baseline) Nursing Dx #3 Physical Assessment Cont. Nursing Interventions Assess current level of anxiety Client exhibited written and non-verbal cues to level of anxiety Assess contributing factors Client recently lost ability to communicate verbally Allow client to express feelings Client used written communication to express distress Address client's concerns Client appeared relieved to have answers regarding diagnosis, trach care, and potential hospice 48 year old male presented with complaints of SOB and difficulty swallowing. He has an admitting diagnosis of base of tongue cancer. Patient has a central port with a saline lock (0.9% NaCl), right upper chest and a G-tube, left upper abdomen (Enteral Nutrition Jevity 1.2 350 mL 4x daily) San Francisco Patient had call light within reach, non-skid slippers, HOB elevated to prevent aspiration, pathways were clear, and bed alarm was always on. Patient had a fall risk score of 2, so the importance of asking for assistance was reiterated. Ineffective airway clearance r/t obstructed airway AEB trach, excessive mucous, and retained secretions. Medications Cancer- Base of Tongue Stockholm Supporting Data: Recent tracheostomy Patient appears agitated when trying to communicate Non-verbal cues Supporting Data: Client has recent tracheostomy Client has copious amounts of sputum in trach as well as on clothing and skin Client exhibited incorrect use of external suction Nursing Interventions Assess client's baseline knowledge Client does not have knowledge of how to properly clear secretions Teach client proper use of suction devices to remove sputum. Client listened intently and was receptive Have client demonstrate proper use of equipment Patient was able to demonstrate proper use of external suction in clearing sputum Assess further questions client has Client stated that he understood teaching and had no further questions AM: (cc) photo by jimmyharris on Flickr Lab Tests Nursing Interventions: Pulmonary Services Impaired verbal communication r/t tracheostomy AEB dysphasia Risk for falls r/t muscle weakness Mental Status Oriented x 3 Understands and follows directions Cooperative and calm Nutritional Status G-tube nutrition (4x daily) absorption sometimes impaired AEB aspiration of 200 mL Functional Status Able to ambulate with 1 Unable to complete ADLs independently Hendrich Fall Risk Score 11 Communication Patient able to communicate via written communication only. According to IOM guideines Patient has Hx of reflux disease, ulcer disease, oropharyngeal cancer, anxiety, and depression. Assessment Musculoskeletal Generalized weakness and muscle atrophy Unsteady gait GI/ Abdominal G-tube upper left abdomen Bowel sounds x 4 Renal Dark colored urine with slight odor 300 mL voided during shift Integumentary Braden score 14 Skin warm and dry, fragile Decreased turgor Risk Factors Tobacco use Alcohol Use HPV Hx of caner Alterations in A&P Cells in affected area form mutations in DNA. These mutations allow cancerous cells to grow & eventually form a tumor. These cells may spread to other areas of the mouth & throat. Complications Dry mouth, difficulty swallowing, disfigurement, dysphasia, death Nursing Dx #4 Deep Suctioning/ Trach Care RBC (4.6-6.0): L 3.81 (down from 4.2) Although levels are consistent with advanced cancer, continue to monitor for S/S of hemorrhage. Hgb (14-18): L 9.4 (down from 11.0) Hct (40-54): L 29.8 (down from 30.3) Monitor for S/S of hemorrhage and anemia. If levels drop too low, blood transfusion may be considerend. Na+ (135-145): L 134 (up from 120) Monitor for S/S of hyponatremia. (cc) photo by Metro Centric on Flickr Albuterol treatments ordered PRN for SOB. Patient tolerated treatments well and reported feeling "better" after. After treatment, RR was 17, lung sounds were diminished bilaterally, and SPO2 was 90%.

Transcript: Patient Portal Utilization Meaningful use is using certified electronic health record (EHR) technology to: Improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce health disparities Engage patients and family Improve care coordination, and population and public health Maintain privacy and security of patient health information Meaningful use sets specific objectives that eligible professionals (EPs) and hospitals must achieve to qualify for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Incentive Programs. Two metrics: Patient Electronic Access 1: 50% target Measure 1: More than 50 percent of all unique patients seen by the EP during the EHR reporting period are provided timely access to view online, download, and transmit to a third party their health information subject to the EP's discretion to withhold certain information. Patient Electronic Access 2: 5% target For an EHR reporting period in 2017, more than 5 percent of unique patients seen by the EP during the EHR reporting period (or his or her authorized representatives) view, download or transmit to a third party their health information during the EHR reporting period. “When patients interact with their test results, they need to know the purpose of the test, the interpretation of the result, and next steps. Addressing these issues may help improve patient-centered care” (Baldwin, Singh, Sittig, & Giardina, 2016). References 2016 Program Requirements. Retrieved September 25, 2016, from Baldwin, J.

Stage 3 and MACRA Meaningful Use and the Patient Portal Literature “regular internet use and having a personal computer partially accounted for differences in use of the portal to send messages to health care providers by age, race, and income, whereas education and sex-related differences remained statistically significant even after controlling for internet access and care preference” (Graetz, Gordon, Fung, Hamity, & Reed, 2016). Meaningful Use Usability and Functionality Wanjiku Kariuki Viola B. Leal Mohammad Tabatabai Ana Ibarra Noriega Secure Messaging “over two-thirds had at least one medication discrepancy at discharge, and nearly one-third had at least one potential ADE” (Heyworth et al., 2014). The authors found that “virtual medication reconciliation following hospital discharge has the potential to improve medication safety in the transition from inpatient to outpatient care” “more effort on the part of the provider is needed to encourage patients to use a portal system. If providers take a more active role in educating patients as to the benefit of the portal, provide a positive view of the system, provide consistent standardized information, and remind the patients in multiple ways and times, patients are more likely to enroll in the portal system” (Snyder & Oliver, 2014). Objective 8: Patient Electronic Access (VDT) Provide patients the ability to view online, download, and transmit their health information within 4 business days of the information being available to the EP. Patient Portal Metric Provider Buy-in Portal on Newer Internet Browser Lab Test Results DMC Patient Portal “patient and provider attitudes toward patient portal use found that the most negatively-perceived feature was user-friendliness, making the portal difficult to navigate” (Baldwin, Singh, Sittig, & Giardina, 2016). “When patients interact with their test results, they need to know the purpose of the test, the interpretation of the

Transcript: Expose Findings/Interventions Disability/Dextrose/Doctor/Discomfort Findings/Interventions Due to patients presentation so far: No need to call doctor at present States pain currently 6/10, but able to tolerate assessment at this time No evidence of hyper/hypoglycemia, so blood sugar not checked at this time Patient remains alert and interactive with assessment Clinical Case Presentation Airway Findings Interventions Patient alert and interactive. No complaints of c-spine trauma or tenderness Feel Listen Look Ensure safety equipment available at bedside including appropriately sized: Suction equipment BVM OPA Oxyegn delivery devices Able to speak full sentences No stridor No hoarse voice Equal rise and fall of chest Sitting upright and maintaining own airway No drooling, edema, or FB in mouth If required, could have felt for air movement Had enough evidence from look and listen to avoid this step Primary Assessment While the PAT for this patient demonstrated no major red flags, the patient was calm, and cooperative with the assessment, so I continued with a quick primary assessment before starting my secondary Pediatric Assessment Triangle Appearance Circulation Alert Walking independently Talking with dad Maintaining own airway Skin pink, warm and dry Mucus membranes moist Interventions? Patient walked to room independently Writer proceeded to primary assessment Breathing No WOB Resps regular and easy No tripoding or drooling Chief Complaint c/o 5/7 hx of left sided chest pain/pressure with intermittent SOB and sharp "stabbing" pain to left chest c/o intermittent pain radiating to L and R shoulder/arm Circulation Interventions Findings Consider IV access Due to stability at this point in assessment, no IV initiated at this time Cardiac monitoring initiated NSR demonstrated ECG ordered Unsure of what is causing CP, ECG can provide evidence of cardiac changes/damage Demonstrated NRS Cap refill: Brisk (<3 sec) Equal centrally and peripherally Skin: Warm Pink, no cyanosis Dry No mottling to peripheries Heart rate/rhythm: Peripheral pulses strong and regular No murmur on auscultation S1S2 audible Rate age appropriate at 80 bpm Breathing Findings Interventions Lung Auscultation Breath sounds decreased to left side, but A/E still audible to base A/E clear to right side No adventitious lung sounds bilaterally Apply pulse oximetery Apply to index finger on right hand SpO2 100% No indication for oxygen supplementation at this time, but nasal prongs, face mask, and NRB available if needed.
