Developing a plan of care
You are an adult gerontology primary care nurse practitioner (AGPCNP) in a long term care facility (LTC). You will be assessing and developing a plan of care for a frail elderly resident. The resident is an 88-year-old female with multiple co-morbidities that include heart failure, osteoporosis, diabetes type 2, and hearing loss. She has no surviving relatives and her stay in the LTC is funded through Medicaid and a small personal retirement fund she had built up as healthcare assistant. Discuss the HCFA resident assessment instrument (RAI) and the resident’s rights based on OBRA regulations. How might you utilize the minimum data set (MDS) in developing the plan of care for the resident. Give examples (weight loss, fall risk, etc.)
