Mrs Marjorie Smith, a Teacher aged 58, lives with her husband in their own home at 21 SunsetStrip, Sunshine Bay. The house has 2 steps to the front door and 6 steps to the back door.Four weeks ago Mrs Smith underwent a routine Mammogram where a lump in her right breas was discovered. Her GP referred her to a gynaecologist who specialises in breast tumours anda Tru-cut core biopsy of the breast tumour and a sentinel node biopsy were undertaken in the day ward at her local hospital. One week later at her outpatient's appointment she and her husband were told that she would require a R Modified Radical Breast Mastectomy due to the presence of cancerous cells present in her R breast and sentinel node. Once the wound had healed she would commence a short course of chemotherapy under the care of an Oncologist to reduce the chance of any further development of malignant growth. Two days later she underwent a R Modified Radical Breast Mastectomy in her local hospital which went well. Today her Gynaecologist is very pleased with her progress post op and is happy for her to go home in two days' time with her two drain tubes insitu, (one beneath the breast's superior skin flap and the other in the axilla). She is now mostly self-caring, although requiring some assistance with hygiene and daily chores due to her R breast wound and axillary drain tubes insitu which limits her R arm's range of movement. Note Mrs Smith is also R handed.During her six day stay in hospital Mrs Smith has seen the breast care specialist re wound care,mobilisation, bra supports and prosthesis choice post op, once the breast and axilla woundhave healed. She has also spent time with the physiotherapist re arm R arm exercises to reduce muscle atrophy and increase lymph drainage from her R arm. She will require ongoing support at home and has a gynaecologist outpatient appointment in 2 weeks, where her drain tubes will be removed and a Breast Care Nurse appointment in 2 weeks as well re breast supports and care. An urgent referral has been made for the O.T. to do a home visit tomorrow before Mrs Smith is discharged to provide aids for safe mobilisation in and around her home. She will also require home assistance as Mr Smith was injured in a car accident 2 months ago and is still receiving physio for his lower back due to pain. It is Day 6 and you have been allocated to care for Mrs Smith. Part of your patient care today is to provide Mrs and Mr Smith with a 20 minute patient discharge education session regarding her care at this stage of her recovery, required outpatient's appointments and home supports she will require post discharge.
