Anna Lenska
Mrs Anna Lenska is a 68 year old retired woman who, for the past 6 months, has been a client of the Community Health Service for treatment of an ulcer on her right lower leg. She has a history of hypertension and Type 2 diabetes requiring oral hypoglycaemics.
Anna is widowed, lives alone and has no immediate family. Her neighbour usually takes her to do her shopping. Her leg ulcer has been dressed twice weekly by community Registered Nurses in accordance with the wound specialist nurse’s instructions. The leg ulcer is slowly healing.
It is 7.30am and you, the community Registered Nurse, arrive at Anna’s home for the wound assessment and dressing change. Upon arrival, Anna complains that she is feeling a “bit faint” and asks you to check her blood sugar level (BSL). The BSL reading is 3.5 mmol/L. You follow the recommendations for hypoglycaemia, and Anna begins to feel better and her BSL increases to 6.2mmol/L.
On talking with Anna, you discover that she has not been eating well because her neighbour has been away and she has not been able to get out to do the shopping. She has been wearing an old pair of closed toe shoes as her other more comfortable shoes had become too broken down to wear. She also says she sometimes forgets to take her medications.
Current vital signs:
Temperature 36.5C, Blood Pressure 160/90 mmHg, Pulse 84 beats/min, and Respiratory Rate 15 breaths/min
Current medications:
● Metformin 1g PO daily
