IV. HEALTH HISTORY

Mr. x

Mrx, the head of the family, is a soldier assigned x and goes home only
every 3 months. He started to smoke when he was 20 years old with a
minimum of 10 sticks per day and is an occasional drinker. For the
past years, he suffered minor illnesses only such as cough and fever.
According to his wife, he just takes Paracetamol 500mg 1 tab q4h and
herbal plants namely Lagundi for minor illness such as fever and
cough. As claimed by the wife, Mrx doesn’t have any heredofamilial
diseases on both paternal and maternal side.

Mrs. x

Mrsx, the wife did not complained of any health problems. She has
given Normal vaginal delivery to all her 3 children x wherein she also
had her pre-natal check ups when she was pregnant. She started to
use a family planning method after her 2nd child was born and chose
PILLS. But she claimed that she did not like taking the contraceptive
pills regularly because of its side effects such as dizziness. She said,
she would just take the pills, 1 week before her husband comes home.

x

x is the eldest child of the x family. Unfortunately I was not able to
assess him regularly because he is at school. But according to her
mother x is a healthy child with complete immunizations.
x

x is the 2nd child and I always meet her on each of my visit. She is a
charming child with complete immunizations also. Her mother said that
she only suffers minor illness like fever and colds and was given
medications such as Calpol , 1 tsp every 4 hours.

.x

x is the third child and has complete immunizations. Her mother said
that he has recently suffered cough and colds for 3 days so she self
medicated x with Carbocisteine, 1 tsp. 3 x a day. As I assessed x, I
noticed that there are a lot of mosquito bites on his legs. When I asked
the mother about it, she said that she has not done anything with the
problem yet.

x

x is the sister of Mrs. x. She stays with the x family to help and
assist her sister in rearing the children since her brother-in- law is
working away from home. She did not complain of any discomforts and
said that they don’t have any heredofamilial disease. For the past
months, she suffered minor illness only like cough and colds. When
asked what medications she took that time, she said she make used of
Lagundi leaves to cure her illness.

HOME AND ENVIRONMENT
1. Housing

A. Adequacy of living space

The house of our client is primarily made up of wood with a length of 7
meters and a width of 5 meters. Not enough for a family with 6 members. A
bamboo floor was created to make it elevated especially during rainy seasons
and a wooden stair serves as their access to the house. They don t own the
house where they stay. They pay P800/ month for the house rent. The nearest
neighbor is 5 meters away and the land area is muddy and watery during rainy
seasons. There lightning facility is through x and they pay P550.00 per month for
their current bill.

B. Sleeping Arrangement

The house was divided into three areas, one bedroom, a living room and a
kitchen. When the husband is around, the sister-in- law together with the two
eldest children sleeps in the living room so that the couple and the youngest
child sleeps in the bedroom. They don’t use any mosquito net as a protective
measure against mosquito bites and their windows are unscreened.

C. Presence of breeding or resting sites of vectors of diseases

The surrounding of the house is dirty, there are flies flying around because
there is no proper maintenance of cleanliness. The untrimmed plants and trees
could serve as the breeding place of mosquitoes.
If you take a look inside the house, things are not properly arranged and
cleaned which could also serve as breeding places for cockroaches and rats.

D. Presence of accident hazards
The house is totally made up of wood that is prone to fire. It is 1 ft elevated
from the ground to protect it during rainy seasons. But the wooden floor is not
that strong to support the weight of the whole family and the wooden stairs that
serves as the access to the house is hazardous for the children.

E. Food storage and cooking facilities

Their kitchen is outside the house and their cooking area is made up of
wood. They utilize firewood, which is stored at the side of the cooking area, for
their cooking needs. The kitchen is dirty because proper maintenance is not
observed.
They have a refrigerator which serves as their storage area for their left
over foods. But the unwashed plates on their dishwashing sink is not good for it
harbors growth of microorganisms.

F. Water Supply

Their source of water supply for drinking is the faucet supplied by
NAWASA and they pay P200 a month for their water bill. They also get the water
for household chores on the same faucet.

G. Toilet facility

The family has a water sealed toilet located inside the house. It is well
maintained by the mother but the toilet door is just covered by a cloth in which it
doe not allow privacy for anyone who will use the toilet.

H. Garbage disposal
Their means of garbage disposal is by placing it on a large plastic bag so
it will be gathered until it is full then a garbage collection at Zone 5 is done every
Wednesday. But the children are not trained on proper waste disposal and would
just throw their garbage anywhere.

I. Drainage system

The family has no drainage system .

2. Kind of neighborhood

x is a very peaceful place especially during weekdays when the children
are in school. The air is not polluted and the land area is wet and muddy during
rainy days and dusty during sunny days. The community people were very warm
and participative. Mostly, their source of income is through farming and working
in government agencies.
Some houses are closely built to each other that is why it’s not a surprise
that the community people were really bonded to each other and by just
mentioning the family name, we could already have an idea where to find them
since they were aware of the location.

3. Social and Health facilities

In the area, they have their recreational facility which is a basketball court
located x. There, we can also find the Barangay hall and the health center which
is offering an immunization and consultation every Tuesday and Pre–natal
check-ups during Thursdays. Significant community activities are also being held
in there.
The community people gather every Friday at 2pm for their weekly Zonal
meeting at xesidence xl spearheaded by the zone leader and the division leader.
They also have a church where they can attend mass during Sundays at Zone 2.
The children go to school x.

4. Communication and Transportation Facilities available

The family owns a television and a radio in their house where they could
listen to and be updated of the latest news about available health services and
other health issues. They could ride a motorela or a sikad with a fare of P5.00 if
they would go somewhere around Igpit and ride a jeepney with a P15.00 fare if
they will go to the city proper.

VII. FAMILY COPING INDEX

The objective of this indicator is to present a benchmark for approximating
the nursing needs of a particular family, thus Family Coping Index. It is the
coping capacity and not the underlying problem that is being rated, and it is
designed to record family rather than individual coping capacity. In public health
nursing, the family cannot be seen only as a factor that affects health; rather, the
family is the patient.

X. ACTUAL IMPLIMENTATION

First Visit (January 23, 2009)
A life of a nurse will be irrelevant if she will be unable to make changes on the
lives of the people that are gathered around her everyday. As I arrived at x I
immediately roam around to find a family for my care plan. There I saw Mrs. Bautista
outside their home. I hurriedly approached her and asked her some questions
basing on the criteria of the care study. I was glad to know that her family qualifies
for that certain criteria. I immediately introduced myself to the family members,
asked for their approval, stated for my purposes and duration of visit, and
established good rapport with them. Fortunately, they permitted me to conduct my
care study with her family.
I interviewed Mrsx with regards to the names, birthdays, educational
attainment, occupation, monthly income, religion, and heredo-familial diseases of the
family. I was then informed that her husband is working away from home and comes
home only every 3 months. I took their vitals signs and assessed the children who
are present since the eldest child is at school. Immediately, I saw many shortcoming
of the family which may lead to serious problems. I then instantly gave my initial
health teaching on the importance of keeping their house clean and safe. When
asked where they get the water they used for drinking, the mother answered that the
water is supplied by NAWASA and they pay a minimum bill of P200 a month. I was
able to roam around the place and saw areas that could serve as breeding places
for mosquitoes and other vectors of diseases. I taught the mother ways to minimize
and eradicate breeding places of vectors of disease by keeping their environment
clean always. I also observed that the children are having mosquito bites on both
lower extremities.

Second Visit (January 30, 2009)
On my 2nd day of assessment, I continue to gather-up important data for the
study and for my actual implementation. I also gave partial health teachings
regarding the proper care for mosquito bites. The family was able also to understand
the teachings i made with them. I have learned that Mrs. x is using contraceptive
pills as means of family planning method but I was surprised to know when she
admitted that she does not regularly take her pills because of the undesirable side
effects. She also stated that she only takes pills 1 week before her husband comes
home. I taught her about the advantages and disadvantages of noncompliance to
her contraceptive pills and she seems to understand it. I encourage her to inquire in
the Health Center about other family planning methods available and change her
family planning method.
I also observed that the youngest child is having cough and colds during my
2nd visit and he is having fast breathing. I then assessed the child and taught the
mother about the things she must do and also educate her of how to manage of
some of the child illness.

Third Visit (February 13, 2009)
On my 3rd day of visit, I have seen that proper sanitation was one of the health
problems so I imparted health teaching regarding proper sanitation. I have taught the
mother that she could segregate the waste into biodegradable and non-
biodegradable. She was also encouraged to train her children regarding proper
waste disposal while they are still young.
I also encouraged Mrs. x to encourage the repair of the wooden stairs by
paying somebody to do the labor for her. Saving a budget for the repair of the
wooden stairs was discussed so that the mother will have an idea how to solve the
problem on the hazardous stairs. Then we also stressed out that having drainage is
important to avoid diseases such as diarrhea and malaria so she was advised to let
some neighbor do the drainage for her since her husband is not around.

Fourth Visit (February 20, 2009)
The 4th visit is my last visit to my family client since time is not enough to
cover the 6 visits. This last visit will serve as my evaluation to see if my health
teachings to the family were effective. Based on my evaluation, the family is now
ready to make decisions to make appropriate actions and mobilize resources
independently for the health of the family. Though, some of my goals and plans is
still on going, I am looking forward that the family will continue what they have
started. I reviewed what we have health teach to them and stressed out the
important things for them to remember.
With the family’s cooperation during the whole community exposure, I
extended my gratitude to them by giving them some food supply for the children.
Furthermore, an evaluation was conducted in order to know if there are
improvements in their health status, and health seeking behavior
XI. EVALUATION

As part of our requirement as nursing students of Liceo de Cagayan
University, we were exposed at x
I was able to render care to the Bautista family for 4 home visits at x. During
those visitations, the family was being assessed and various problems were being
identified which needed attention in order to improve the family living condition. In
those problems I had able to identified, I was able to give nursing care based on the
knowledge that I learned from school.
After giving them the interventions, the family became knowledgeable of the
importance of ones health and the importance of having a clean safe and disease
free environment.
This experience made me realized the true essence of being a health care
provider. I was able to experience rendering care not just to this certain family but
also to the community people and its not easy. But even if this is so, I felt challenged
and I enjoyed the times when we were walking under the scorching heat of the sun.
Blending with the community people and mingling with them gave me a feeling of
satisfaction to be accepted as health care providers. I was able to touch and made
even a difference to the lives of the family I cared for and so with those people in the
community.
