Case Study No. 1

Mrs. Franklin-Jones,

One week ago, he was admitted from the emergency room to Cardiac Intensive Care with a diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. She has recovered as expected and is being transferred to the cardiac unit.

Today is a step down unit. “I was really surprised when I got that bad pain in my chest!” she says to Nurse Julie Hernandez as she settles into her new room. I was aware that I had high blood pressure, but I didn’t believe it was that severe. I try to take my medication as prescribed by the clinic, but I occasionally forget. I suppose I should read the papers they gave me about what foods I should and should not eat. I’d better look after myself! Momma had high blood pressure, which killed her! Who knows, maybe I’ll have to learn to cook.

not what I was taught in Jamaica! I might have to delegate the cooking to Tomas. Since he lost his job, he has more time at home than I do. Between my shifts at the school cafeteria and my new housecleaning job, I don’t have much time. You are aware that my sister is traveling from Jamaica to see me. I believe she’s on her way to bring me some bush tea. That will put me right!”

Case Study Number Two

Claude Jean-Baptiste has been transferred to the Rehabilitation Institute, which is adjacent to the hospital, to recover from post-hip replacement surgery. When he enters the unit, he notices welcoming signs written in several languages, including Creole, his native tongue. Because there are no Creole-speaking nurses on that shift, they use a language line to request translation services. During this initial nursing assessment, the translator informs Mr. Jean-Baptiste that the nurses have invited him to have a relative by his side to ensure that they understand and meet his needs. He is questioned about Haitian customs and beliefs that they may respect. Mr. Jean-Baptiste is encouraged to bring food as well as spiritual support.
