Assessment

SUBJECTIVE:

Diagnosis
Impaired physical mobility related to Neuromuscular Skeletal Impairment evidenced by reluctance to attempt movement; limited ROM and decrease muscle strength

Analysis
Alteration in mobility may be a temporary or more permanent problem. Most disease and rehabilitative states involve some degree of immobility (e.g., as seen in strokes, leg fracture, trauma, morbid obesity, and multiple sclerosis).The incidence of disease and disability continues to grow. And with shorter hospital stays, patients are being transferred to rehabilitation facilities or sent home for physical therapy in the

Planning
During the patients stay at the hospital she will be able to: > Regain/maintain mobility at the highest possible level. > Maintain position of function. > Increase strength/function of affected and compensatory body parts > Demonstrate techniques that enable resumption of activities.

Intervention
>Assess degree of immobility produced by injury/treatment and note patient’s perception of immobility. > Instruct patient in/assist with active/passive ROM exercises of affected and unaffected extremities. > Assist with/encourage self-care activities (e.g., bathing, shaving). > Reposition periodically and encourage coughing/deepbreathing exercises. > Increase the amount of roughage/fiber in the diet. Limit gas-forming foods. > Note emotional/behavioral responses to problems of immobility. > Encourage

Rationale
> requiring information/interventions to promote progress toward wellness.

Evaluation
After Nursing intervention: > Regain/maintain mobility at the highest possible level. > Maintain position of function. > Increase strength/function of affected and compensatory body parts > Demonstrate techniques that enable resumption of activities. Nursing objective was met
