NURSING PROCESS RECORDING I. Personal Data Name: Age: Sex: Civil Status: Educational Attainment : Order/Position in the family : Assessment prior to introduction Helen Arizala 30 Female Married Second Year High School Mother II. The area is congested; there are around 20 families in a compound who is expose to several health hazards like poor environmental sanitation, open drainage system and inadequate living space. The Arizalas is one of those families living in the area. Mrs, Helen Arizal is busy taking good care of her child who is about to sleep at the time when I arrived for the initial interview. III. Objectives A. Short-term Objectives To be able to achieve integration within the family and to promote health education and active participation in terms of general and distinct health necessities B. Long term Objectives To be able to study the conditions of the community with focus on the health aspects IV. Date, Place, Time and Duration of Nurse-Patient Interaction The interview took place dated April 23, 2005 in front of Mrs. Arizala’s house at exactly 10:10 a.m. It lasted for about 15 minutes and I was very glad that Mrs. Arizala was very accommodating. I did not hesitate to ask relevant questions because she showed a lot of interest in the conversation. V. Brief description of the setting I was able to visit Mrs. Arizala’s place twice and somehow I noticed that their house has no enough lighting and ventilation. I wonder how they manage to stay there for two years without water supply and no private toilet facility. Their house is considered to be a make shift type of house and has inadequate living space. The wooden bed found near the main door serves as the living room area leaving a small space for kitchen VI. Nurse-Patient Interaction VII. Evaluation Based on my interview, the family needs more orientation and information regarding health issues. They should value or prioritize their health above all. The importance of prenatal check up and malnutrition should be given emphasis to ensure the development of the baby. Inadequate living space and poor environmental sanitation seems to be a threat to the family’s health. Overall, the health requirements of the family are not being met due to poverty and lack of awareness. VIII. Future Plan or Objectives for the next interaction Promotion of health, prevention of diseases together with simple treatment and rehabilitation would be my next objective to help the family alleviate their health status and conditions.
