You are working in an extended care facility (ECF) when M.Z.’s daughter brings her mother in for a week stay while she goes on vacation.

Here is the background of the question.

You are working in an extended care facility (ECF) when M.Z.’s daughter brings her mother in for a week stay while she goes on vacation. M.Z. is an 89-year-old widow with a 4-day history of dysuria, back pain, incontinence, severe mental confusion, and loose stools. Her most current vital signs (VS) are 118/60, 88, 18, 99.4° F.

The medical director ordered several lab tests on admission. The results were as follows:

  • WBC: 11 thou/cmm
  • Complete Metabolic Panel (CMP) within normal limits (WNL)
  • Post-void catheterization yielded 100 ml, and urinalysis (UA) showed WBC 100+/HPF (high-powered field), RBC 3 to 6/HPF, bacteria rare.
  • Urinary culture and sensitivity (C&S) results were as follows: Escherichia coli, more than 100,000 colonies, sensitive to ciprofloxacin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, and nitrofurantoin.

HERE IS THE QUESTION:

Correlate the patient’s need for teaching with the concept of mobility.

I need at least 500 wordings, and at least 4 references. I will check the references to see if it matches what is on the essay, thank you.
