Your patient is a 42-year-old female that arrives in the ED with complaints of fever and not feeling well. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy for bladder cancer. She has an indwelling urinary catheter with scant amount of dark, foul smelling urine. She has a temperature of 102.2F, HR 136, BP 110/50 and RR 28. She is allergic to penicillin and Sulfa.
What type of shock is she experiencing?
The patient is experiencing septic shock. The patient is also exhibiting signs of a urinary tract infection with complications of septicemia.
What interventions do you anticipate the doctor will order?
I would anticipate for the MD to conduct a urine culture, fluid maintenance, IV antibiotics, and a CBC because the patient is on chemotherapy. The MD might also order a vasopressor which constricts the blood vessels and increases the blood pressure to keep the organs from shutting down.
What can you teach this patient about prevention of infection?
I would teach the patient the importance of maintaining proper hygiene while handling the catheter, regular changing of the catheter, wipe front to back after using the restroom, urinate immediately after intercourse, wear cotton underwear, and consuming plenty of water to maintain a healthy urinary tract
The doctor orders Bactrim. What should you be concern about? Why?
The patient is allergic to Sulpha and the doctor has prescribed Bactrim which is a combination drug that consist of Sulpha. I would be concerned because the patient is allergic to the prescribed medication but also needs immediate antibiotic therapy. 
What type of shock is she experiencing?
Distributive shock (Septic Shock)
What interventions do you anticipate the doctor will order?
-Infection control: All invasive procedures must be carried out with aseptic technique after careful hand hygiene
-Collaboration: The nurse must collaborate with the other members of the healthcare team to identify the site and source of sepsis and specific organisms involved.
-Management of fever: The nurse must monitor the patient closely for shivering
-Pharmacologic therapy: The nurse should administer prescribed IV fluids and medications including antibiotic agents and vasoactive medications
-Monitor blood levels: The nurse must monitor antibiotic toxicity, BUN, creatinine, WBC, hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelet levels, and coagulation studies.
-Assess physiologic status: The nurse should assess the patients hemodynamic status, fluid intake and output, and nutritional status
What can you teach this patient about prevention of infection?
-Prevent shock episodes: The nurse should instruct the patient and the family strategies to prevent shock episodes through identifying the factors implicated in the initial episodes.
-Instructions on assessment: The patient and the family should be taught about assessments needed to identify the complications that may occur after discharge.
-Treatment modalities: The nurse must teach the patient and the family about treatment modalities such as emergency administration of medications, IV therapy, parenteral or enteral nutrition, skin care, exercise, and ambulation.
The doctor orders Bactrim. What should you be concern about? Why?
Bactrim belongs to a drug class called sulfonamides. I would be concerned because the patient has an allergy to this drug class.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
