Case Of Study- Make a Care Plan/ Cardiology Clinical Case

Case Of Study- Make a Care Plan/ Cardiology Clinical Case


A 52-year-old Irish American male is discharged from the hospital. He was hospitalized for four days after a stent placement, following admission from the emergency room with angina symptoms. This patient presented to the emergency room with four hours of crushing chest pain. He was short of breath with exertion and diaphoretic. The patient thought he was having a heart attack and was afraid to come to the hospital. The symptoms lasted for four days before the patient sought help. The patient had been suffering from similar symptoms for the past six months but thought that he just out of shape. It was worse upon admission to the hospital. Prior to this,
the symptoms disappeared with rest.

His symptoms were relieved in the emergency department with medication and he was transferred to the cardiac floor for catheterization.

The patient’s symptoms were highly debilitating upon his admission to the emergency department.

Prior to his admission to the hospital for this event, the patient was not very active because of his angina symptoms. The pain that he had was substernal and crushing and radiated to his neck and jaw. His symptoms resolve with rest only. He has not sought any therapeutic maneuvers.

He is currently asymptomatic and is here for a follow-up visit from his hospitalization to discuss his risk factors. The patient is still concerned that he may have other episodes of angina, even after the stent placement.

The patient has not sought care for his problems in the past. He had been treated for hypertension and high cholesterol in the past but stopped medication on his own. Besides that, he has had no other significant illnesses.

He was hospitalized for a cholecysectomy ten years ago.

This patient had a baseline EKG at his doctor’s office when he was first prescribed his blood pressure medication. Otherwise he’s had no other investigations for heart disease besides his cholesterol levels checks.

Results of Laboratory Investigations Following Hospitalization

Total cholesterol – 210

LDL- 200

HDL- 25

Triglycerides – 250

Fasting blood sugar – 140

HgbA1c – 7.5

CXR – hyperinflation of the lungs – no infiltrate

EKG – no change from baseline.

Risk Factors:

•    High blood pressure

•    Hypercholesterolemia

•    Type 2 diabetes

•    Android obesity

•    Cigarette smoker

•    Positive family history

Past surgical history of Cholecysectomy, almost 10 years age without any complications.

The patient is a high school graduate and a licensed carpenter and is anxious to get back to work because of finances. His income is around $50,000.00 per year. His wife is currently disabled
with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes. The patient has disrupted self-efficacy because he is not sure whether he can care for his wife, who needs his help, now that he is sick. They live paycheck to paycheck and cannot afford a vacation. They have three grown-up children who have left home and do not live in the area. The patient has lived in the same city all his life. He does not participate in sports or any other physical activity. The streets of his neighborhood are not safe for exercising; the crime rate is high. There is little community socialization and most people are at
the poverty level.

He is the sole bread winner in the family. His stress level is very high because of the impending bills that he needs to pay while he is not able to work. He believes that a man should be able to care for his family and be strong enough not to suffer from any illnesses himself.

The patient and his wife live in a one-bedroom apartment in an inner city, quite isolated from their community. They do not have any relatives living in the area nor do they socialize with neighbors. He has little emotional or social support. He is stressed most of the time and is now suffering from depressive symptoms such as sleeping excessively and over eating.

This patient has health insurance through the union to which he belongs, but it does not offer complete coverage of all his prescription medications. Though he goes to a clinic that is associated with the hospital, he does not always see the same primary care provider. HABITS
•    Diet Habits

The patient usually eats one large meal a day after work. He skips breakfast most of the times and eats fast food for lunch. He eats few fruits and vegetables; mostly pasta and meat at home.

He feels that he got all the exercise he needed when he was a young man, and the exercise he gets as a carpenter now is sufficient to keep him healthy.

Healthcare proposal Plan

Healthcare proposal Plan

Order Description

Paper is a research project for HCA Healthcare Administrative course in which the student has to present a proposal plan in order to develop a new healthcare facility organization. An example can be focus on my sate and city ( San Antonio,Texas) and the start on development to facilitate a “walk-in in ready clinic” such as Walgreens or CVS have many “ready and go clinics” in which patients can just walk in for a simple vaccine or be seen by a nurse for a “non medical emergency” care. The main focus of this paper is as a Healthcare Administrator how would I develop a new walk in ciliic? and where would I plan to operate this new clinic?. The report should include information about planning and organization of the new facility, hiring, cost of operation, budget plan and cash and flow sheet, and marketing (this is all I can think of for now) but should be among something like that. One idea I was thinking was to operating this new clinic in a Walmart, because I never heard of a Walmart here that had a walk in clinic so this can be an idea to start off.
