CASE STUDY

Please relate castudy to the Concept of nutriton

 

 

You assume care for Mr. Bowden and receive a report from the charge nurse who has started the admissions process. She mentions the labs tests were drawn, and radiology has been notified to transport Mr. Bowden when they are ready to perform the MRI. The nurse tells you she is concerned that the admitting provider might be unaware of the patient’s withdrawal symptoms.

 

You enter Mr. Bowden’s room to perform a head-to-toe assessment. You find an obese, unkempt, unshaven man. You verify his identification with double identifiers. Mr. Bowden is alert but repeatedly asks where he is and what time it is. He appears slightly agitated and answers your questions curtly. He complains that the unit is “very loud and irritating” and asks whether you could turn off the lights as they are “really bright.”
