Assignment:Clinical reasoning nursing

Consider the patient situation Ms Nancy Huang is a 29 year old university student undertaking her honours year in physics. Nancy was diagnosed as a type 1 diabetic three years ago. She normally manages her diabetes reasonably well since making a number of lifestyle changes combined with regular insulin. Nancy has been very stressed, as she has not been able to finish her thesis on time due to having to recently return to China unexpectedly to attend a family funeral. Since returning a few days ago, she has seen her GP, as she was unwell, and was diagnosed with a viral chest infection that was managed conservatively. She subsequently fell further behind in her studies. Nancy decided to pull a few ‘all-nighters’ to get her thesis finished and decided to consume excessive amounts of coffee and soft drinks in order to stay awake to finish her thesis. The next day her husband noticed Nancy was particularly irritable and becoming emotional as she could not concentrate on finishing her thesis. Nancy was insisting on being driven to the university to speak to her lecturer. On the drive in, they had to stop 4 times for Nancy to use the bathroom. She became even more irritable and her husband decided to call an ambulance once they arrived at the university, who then transported her to hospital. The time is now 1400 and Nancy has just been admitted into the emergency bay. You are the first RN to assess her. She is awaiting medical review.
