headings, and a reference page.

Case study #1

Mrs. Franklin-Jones was admitted from the
Emergency Room to Cardiac Intensive Care one week ago with a diagnosis of acute
myocardial infarction. She has recovered as expected and is moving to the
cardiac step down unit today. She is talking with Nurse Julie Hernandez, as she
gets settled in her new room, “I was really surprised when I got that bad
pain in my chest! I knew I had high pressure but I just didn’t think it was
that bad. I try to take my medicine like they told me to in the clinic but sometimes
I forget. I guess that I need to study those papers they gave me about what
foods I should eat and not eat. I better take care of myself! Momma had bad
pressure and it killed her! Who knows—I may even have to learn to cook
different than I was taught in Jamaica! I may have to let Tomas do the cooking.
He’s got more time at home now than I do since he lost his job. There isn’t too
much time between my shifts at the school cafeteria and my new housecleaning
job. You know my sister is coming up from Jamaica to see me. I think she is
bringing me some bush tea. That’ll set me right!”

  • Using Leininger’s Culture Care Model, what factors in the story
    shared by Mrs. Franklin-Jones should be considered by Nurse Hernandez when
    planning for the patient’s discharge?
  • Why is the theory of Culture Care Diversity important
    in the delivery of nursing care for all patients?
  • Using Leininger’s Theory of Culture Care Diversity and
    Universality, develop
    a plan of care for Mrs. Franklin-Jones.
  • Discuss the
    strengths and limits to Leininger’s Theory.

Case Study #2

Claude Jean-Baptiste is recovering from post-hip
replacement surgery and has been transferred to the Rehabilitation Institute
adjacent to the hospital. When he enters the unit, he sees welcoming signs written
in several languages including his own, Creole. Since there are no nurses on
that shift that speak Creole, they use a language line to ask for translation
services. During this initial nursing assessment, the translator informs Mr.
Jean-Baptiste that the nurses invite him to have a relative at his side so that
they can be sure to understand and meet his needs. He is asked about Haitian
customs and beliefs that they might honor. Mr. Jean-Baptiste is encouraged to
bring food and spiritual care items, and to share the warmth of his culture
with the nursing staff.

  • Discuss assumptions of the Transpersonal Caring
    relationship. What is
    the nurse’s role?
  • How is love, as defined by Watson, evident in this caring
    moment
    ?
  • How can the
    nurse creatively use self to create a healing environment?
  • Discuss the strengths and limits to Watson’s Theory.
