subjective or objective information you need for this client?

Discussion Question 1

For this questions, please read the following case study and then respond to the questions noted below.

Ms. BD is a 33-year-old G2P1 female who has a history of chronic HTN. She was diagnosed with this in the interim since her first pregnancy, and she has been well controlled with Prinizide 12.5/20 PO BID. Her period, usually very regular, was 5 days late. She performed a home pregnancy test which was positive. She states she feel “OK” but is concerned about both her HTN and her developing fetus. She has no other medical problems, symptoms, or concerns.

Assessment: Physical examination is unremarkable. Her BP is 128/68 and her pulse is 74. Her urine human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is positive. Her potassium is 4.2, blood  urea nitrogen (BUN) is 14, and creatinine is 0.6. Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is 29. White blood cells (WBCs) are 6.5, hemoglobin (Hgb) is 12.8, hematocrit (Hct) is 39, and platelets are 330,000.

1.Is there any additional subjective or objective information you need for this client? Explain.

2.Is Prinizide safe in pregnancy? What are the possible complications to the pregnant woman and her fetus?

3.Why is it important to assess the above laboratory values? How might this information impact your treatment plan?

4.Would you make any changes to Ms. BD’s blood pressure medications? Explain. If yes, what would you prescribe? Discuss the medications safety in pregnancy, mechanism of action, route, the half-life; how it is metabolized in and eliminated from the body; and contraindications and black box warnings.

5.What health maintenance or preventive education is important for this client based on your choice medication/treatment?

6.Would you treat this patient or refer her? Where would you refer this patient?

t is anticipated that the initial discussion response should be in the range of 250-300 words. Response posts must demonstrate topic knowledge and scholarly engagement with peers. This is not the only criteria utilized for evaluation; substantive content is imperative. All questions in the topic must be addressed. Please proofread your response carefully for grammar and spelling. Do not upload any attachments. All responses need to be supported by a minimum of one scholarly resource. Journals and websites must be cited appropriately. Citation and reference must adhere to APA format (6th Ed.).


Please read the case scenario listed below. In your initial post, address the questions posed at the end of the scenario. In your response post, please address information you learned about available resources in your clinic area and how you would access them. When reading your peer’s posts, what similarities and differences are noted compared to your clinical or community standards of care?

Detail your approach to care and management for the following case scenario:

A 21-year old woman presents for prenatal visit, her 1st even though she is well into her third trimester and her EDC is predicted to be within a month or so.  He boyfriend, the father of the child, has not been supportive to date of the pregnancy and is also not on good terms with her own parents.  At first, she denies alcohol or drug use but after a while, she opens up and talks about an ongoing opioid addiction.  Most of the time, she takes Percocet bought on the street but due to cost, she has recently begun using heroin.  It becomes clear that she will not be “clean” prior to her delivery and that her child will be born also affected by maternal opiate use.Since she has almost no external support, you know that after she delivers, she will be the primary caregiver of the infant and also hopefully working a detox program.

  • What is the accepted name of the condition with which the child will be born? What are the peri-natal risks to the infant? What are the post-natal risks to the infant? What are the post-natal risks to the mother?
  • Is there any evidence on the long-term risk to the child?
  • In your response post to a peer:  Please share information on the resources available in your clinical practice to address these concerns.

Assignment: Creating A Flowchart

Assignment: Creating a Flowchart


Workflow analysis aims to determine workflow patterns that maximize the effective use of resources and minimize activities that do not add value. There are a variety of tools that can be used to analyze the workflow of processes and clarify potential avenues for eliminating waste. Flowcharts are a basic and commonly used workflow analysis method that can help highlight areas in need of streamlining.

In this Assignment, you select a common event that occurs regularly in your organization and create a flowchart representing the workflow. You analyze the process you have diagrammed and propose changes for improvement.

To prepare:

  • Identify a common, simple event that frequently occurs in your organization that you would like to evaluate.
  • Consider how you would design a flowchart to represent the current workflow.
  • Consider what metrics you would use to determine the effectiveness of the current workflow and identify areas of waste.

To complete:

Write a 3- to 5-page paper which includes the following:

  • Create a simple flowchart of the activity you selected. (Review the Sample Workflow of Answering a Telephone in an Office document found in this week’s Learning Resources for an example.)
  • Next, in your paper:
    • Explain the process you have diagrammed.
    • For each step or decision point in the process, identify the following:
      • Who does this step? (It can be several people.)
      • What technology is used?
      • What policies and rules are involved in determining how, when, why, or where the step is executed?
      • What information is needed for the execution of this step?
    • Describe the metric that is currently used to measure the soundness of the workflow. Is it effective?
    • Describe any areas where improvements could occur and propose changes that could bring about these improvements in the workflow.
    • Summarize why it is important to be aware of the flow of an activity.
