American College of Cardiology (ACC) / American Heart Association (AHA) Classification System Staging Heart Failure With a stance on reimbursements with patients diagnosed with Heart Failure within 30 days it is important for the APN to educate the patient and empower the patient and their family to be compliant with their medications, treatments, and lifestyle changes.
The APN should also know the following Joint Commission Core Measures for Patients with Heart Failure: http://www.jointcommission.org/core_measure_sets.aspx CPM Resource Center. (2010). Heart Failure. Elsevier. Philadelphia, PA.

and no limitation in ordinary physical activity.
NYHA Class 2
Mild symptoms and slight limitation during regular activity. Comfortable at rest.

With a stance on reimbursements with patients diagnosed with Heart Failure within 30 days it is important for the APN to educate the patient and empower the patient and their family to be compliant with their medications, treatments, and lifestyle changes.
