Diagnosing Infectious Disease
Nursing Assignment Help In this week’s lecture we discussed the nurses role in diagnosing infectious diseases. As nurses, you all will see many different patients that have contracted different infectious diseases, displaying different types of signs and symptoms. For this week’s discussion I want you to create a scenario where a patient comes in with certain signs and symptoms and I want you to explain what you would do to help diagnose this patient’s infection disease.
For example, let’s say Suzie Smith came in with the pain in her urinary tract. This is the number one symptom that patients experience with a urinary tract infection. Therefore, we will want to collect a urine sample. We hand the patient a cup and advise her to perform a clean-catch midstream urine collection. Once collected, this will be quickly transported to the lab so a urinalysis may be performed. The lab results come back and show that Suzie’s urine is contaminated with E.coli. The physician will ultimately be the one responsible for diagnosing Suzie with a UTI, but will do so with my help and the laboratory’s help.
As usual, the more info, the better. Please feel free to research some information online about diseases, signs and symptoms, and how they are diagnosed but please remember to then put your research into your own words.
