Nursing Diagnosis Expected Outcomes (S.M.A.R.T) Specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, & time oriented (ID a future time or date for reassessment/ evaluation Nursing Interventions
Acute pain
Movement of bone fragments, edema, and injury to the soft tissue
Reports of pain The patient will verbalize relief of pain.
Short-term goal: Patient verbalizes minimized or controlled feeling of pain.
Long-term goal: Patient is free of pain on surgical site.
Maintain immobilization of affected part by means of bed rest, cast, splint, traction.
Impaired Physical Mobility
Neuromuscular skeletal impairment; pain/discomfort; restrictive therapies (limb immobilization)
Reluctance to attempt movement; limited ROM The patient maintain position of function.
Short-term goal: After 4 days of nursing intervention, the patient will be able to demonstrate techniques and behaviors that enables resumptions of activities.
Long-term goal: After 4 days of nursing intervention, the patient will be able to maintain or increase strength and functions of affected body part.

Long-term goal: After 3-4 days of nursing intervention the patient will be able to reduce risk of infections.
Assess position of splint ring of traction device.
Which of your diagnoses are Priority using Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs: Impaired Physical Mobility according to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, physiologic needs should satisfy first, so that the patient should satisfy this to satisfy her physiologic needs.
Evaluation: Were any of your short term expected outcomes met during your shift? None of the short-term expectations were met during my shift.
How might you revise your care plan next time to achieve at least one outcome during your shift? I plan on improving my care plan next time by monitoring my patients’ recovery process keenly and offering effective ways to have my patient be able to decrease edema and promotes venous return.
Medical Diagnosis
1. The patient diagnosed with an Unspecified Displaced Fracture of Surgical Neck of Right Humerus the pieces of bone at the fracture site are separated and shifted out of position. This type of fracture typically requires surgery. Proximal humerus fractures are diagnosed by a thorough physical examination and diagnostic imaging (Stanley, n.d.).
2. Humerus fractures are caused by direct harm to the arm shoulder. About 20% of humerus fractures are displaced and mostly occur in baseball games. Such type of fracture requires a more intrusive treatment like surgery
3. A subsequent encounter is experienced when an active treatment of the patient’s injury has been offered, and the patient is now receiving routine care for the injury in the healing process (Deter, 2006). An example is medical ex-rays to monitor the healing process of the fracture
4. Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airway demonstrated by various recurring symptoms and bronchospasm. Common symptoms of asthma include; coughing, wheezing, short breaths, and chest tightness.
5. A major depressive disorder is a mental disorder demonstrated by two weeks or more of low mood. It is accompanied by loss of interest in several things, low self-esteem, pain with no clear cause and low energy. Patients with depression often hear or see things that are unseen by other people. They affect patients negatively as some end up committing suicide (Deter, 2006).
01/27/19 Sodium
135-145 mmol/L 134 (L) The significance of abnormal sodium lab value is hyponatremia.
01/27/19 BUN/Creatinine Ratio
10-20 mg/DI 27 (H) This mean the patient may not be getting enough blood flow to their kidneys, and could have conditions such as congestive heart failure, dehydration, or gastrointestinal bleeding.
01/27/19 Hemoglobin
12.0-16.0 g/DI 7.8 (L) This mean that there is a nutritional deficiencies such as iron, folate or B12 deficiency.
01/27/19 ALK Phosphate 50-136 IU/L 144 (H)
Elevated ALK Phosphate is most commonly caused by liver disease or bone disorders.
01/27/19 RBC 4.00-5.20 mil/cu mm 2.95 (L)
This could signify trauma in the patient.
Diagnostic Tests
Tests Results Significance
US Venous Upper Extremity Right Indication: Right Humerus Fracture The right arm veins are negative of DVT It enables the nurse to know where exactly the fracture happened and the intensity of the fracture to administer proper medication.
EKG 12- Lead Interpretation: Artifact, Sinus rhythm, right Atrial enlargement, Abnormal ECQ It directs the nurse on the exact medication to use.
