HEALTH HISTORY

Health History Assessment

I choose to do a health assessment on a family friend. I will use AH has her initials.

Demographic Data

AH is 63 years old, a female, Caucasian, and lives in a house. She lives in a rural area

where she lives alone but has family close by.

Perception of Health

To her healthy means being in good health, getting regular exercise, and eating nutritious

food. Unhealthy to her means not being in good health, overweight, and eating bad foods. She

feels like she is between healthy and unhealthy. She is not in the best health, exercises once a

week, and eats good most of the time. She would like to increase her health and the amount of

exercise she gets.

Past Medical History

Her past medical history includes degenerative disc disease, high blood pressure,

hyperlipemia, depression, anxiety, COPD, asthma, emphysema, diverticulitis, and osteoporosis.

Her past surgical history includes neck and back surgery, removal of gallbladder, removal of

cataract, and hysterectomy. The medications she takes daily include a Spiriva inhaler, allegra,

valium, Zoloft, gabapentin, Lopressor, and protonix.

Family Medical History

Both of her parents had high blood pressure, which lead to her high blood pressure. Her

mother had asthma, which increased her chance of having it. Her father had lung cancer from

smoking cigarettes. Her mother was anemic and had to have a lot of blood transfusions.

Review of Systems

HEALTH HISTORY

The only skin issue that she has is eczema. Her hair has some grey in it and her nails are

fine. She doesn’t have any headaches, head injury, or dizziness. She has some pain in her neck

when she turns her head to the right. She doesn’t have any lymphatic issues. She has decreased

vision and had some cataracts. She wears eyeglasses and had cataract removal surgery in June

2015. She doesn’t have any earaches or infections and her hearing is good. She has allergies to

pollen and dust but no other major sinus issue. Her mouth and throat look good, no mouth pain,

sore throat, toothaches, or lesions. She has asthma and emphysema, which causes her to have

shortness of breath. Even with her breathing problems she can still take care of herself, cook, and

clean. Her only heart related use is high blood pressure and she controls that with medication and

controls her salt intake.

Developmental Considerations

She has had asthma since she was a little girl and this has caused her some issues

growing up. She couldn’t play sports and play with friends for long because she would start

having trouble breathing. She did not have many friends growing up and had trouble with

weight; she always thought that her asthma caused this.

Cultural Considerations

Growing up she was always interested in going to church but her family wasn’t very

religious. She always wanted to study her bible and her father would always have mean

comments to say to her. This made it hard for her to go to church and be able to have a religious

connection.

Psychosocial Considerations

She lost her husband almost a year ago and has had trouble with wanting to be social. She

doesn’t like to attend social events because that was something her and her husband always used

to do together. Her children are great about coming to visit her. At least one of them comes by

daily and they have a weekly family night.

Collaborative Resources

Her family helps her by visiting everyday and going to any doctor appointments with her.

She has a group of friends that go to church every Sunday together then go to lunch afterward.

Her neighbor and her get together a few days of the week and walk to get exercise.

Reflection

This interaction helped me to practice some of the skills I learned in health assessment.

We were able to talk about her medical history well since I know a lot of the medical terms and

she also does because of how much she has had to be at hospitals. During the review of systems

she had trouble understanding some of the questions I asked but we overcame it by me

explaining each subject. I now realized I should have asked her more about any cultural issues.

Purpose

Before any nursing plan of care or intervention can be implemented or evaluated, the nurse assesses the individual through the collection of both subjective and objective data. The data collected are used to determine areas of need or problems to be addressed by the nursing care plan. This assignment will focus on collecting subjective assessment data, synthesizing the data, and on identifying health/wellness priorities based on the findings. The purpose of the assignment is two-fold:

· To recognize the interrelationships of subjective data (physiological, psychosocial, cultural/spiritual, and developmental) affecting health and wellness.

· To reflect on the interactive process between self and client when conducting a health assessment.

Course Outcomes: This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes:

CO 1: Explain expected client behaviors while differentiating between normal findings variations, and abnormalities. (PO 1)

CO 2: Utilize prior knowledge of theories and principles of nursing and related disciplines to integrate clinical judgment in professional decision-making and implementation of nursing process while obtaining a physical assessment. (POs 4 & 8)

CO 3: Recognize the influence that developmental stages have on physical, psychosocial, cultural, and spiritual functioning. (PO 1)

CO 4: Utilize effective communication when performing a health assessment. (PO 3)

CO 5: Demonstrate beginning skill in performing a complete physical examination, using the techniques of inspection, palpation, percussion, and auscultation. (PO 2)

CO 6: Identify teaching/learning needs from the health history of an individual. (POs 2 & 5)

CO 7: Explore the professional responsibility involved in conducting a comprehensive health assessment and providing appropriate documentation. (POs 6 & 7)

Due date: Your faculty member will inform you when this assignment is due. The Late Assignment Policy applies to this assignment.
