Student______________________________________

This sheet is to help you understand what we are looking for, and what our margin remarks might be about on your write ups of patients. Since at all of the white-ups that you hand in are uniform, this represents what MUST be included in every write-up.

1) Identifying Data (___5pts): The opening list of the note. It contains age, sex, race, marital status, etc. The patient complaint should be given in quotes. If the patient has more than one complaint, each complaint should be listed separately (1, 2, etc.) and each addressed in the subjective and under the appropriate number.

2) Subjective Data (___30pts.): This is the historical part of the note. It contains the following:

a) Symptom analysis/HPI(Location, quality , quantity or severity, timing, setting, factors that make it better or worse, and associate manifestations.(10pts)

b) Review of systems of associated systems, reporting all pertinent positives and negatives (10pts).

c) Any PMH, family hx, social hx, allergies, medications related to the complaint/problem (10pts). If more than one chief complaint, each should be written u in this manner.

3) Objective Data(__25pt.): Vital signs need to be present. Height and Weight should be included where appropriate.

4) Assessment (___10pts.): Diagnoses should be clearly listed and worded appropriately.

5) Plan (___15pts.): Be sure to include any teaching, health maintenance and counseling along with the pharmacological and non-pharmacological measures. If you have more than one diagnosis, it is helpful to have this section divided into separate numbered sections.

6) Subjective/ Objective, Assessment and Management and Consistent (___10pts.): Does the note support the appropriate differential diagnosis process? Is there evidence that you know what systems and what symptoms go with which complaints? The assessment/diagnoses should be consistent with the subjective section and then the assessment and plan.

ASSESSMENT:

Differential diagnosis

  • Impetigo

The typical characteristic of impetigo is the red sores that rupture and oozes to form yellow crusts. The conditions generally mild and can affect any part of the body. The formed yellow crusts heal within time and leave no scar. The condition result from various causes including bacterial infections. In severe cases, the condition may lead to kidney complications (May, et al., 2019).

  • Chronic acne vulgaris: The non-inflammatory acne are sebaceous plugs that are extruded from the open comedones. On the other hand, inflammatory acne is characterized by irritation of the inflammatory responses which disrupts the epithelium. The patient presented with rushes and swelling in the skin which could be chronic acne Vulgaris. Furthermore, the fact that the symptoms increased during the period suggests that the condition is related to the hormonal changes in the body system (Acne vulgaris, 2019).
  • The papulopustular rosacea is a condition characterized by extra sensitivity of the skin to the environment. The patients may experience red papules that give the appearance of acne. Updating rosacea diagnosis to improve treatment strategy: Recommendations from the global ROSacea consensus (ROSCO) panel. (2017), the common symptoms of the skin condition include pustules, skin inflammations, telangiectasia, and lymphedema. Furthermore, some patients may experience a burning sensation in the affected regions.

 

PLAN.

 

Treatment Plan: The patient will be initiated on topical medications. The medical intervention will aim at reducing sebum production and alternation of epithelial cohesiveness.

 

Health Promotion: The patient is concerned about her skin condition; therefore, counseling and patient education will be important to help her understand that the condition is manageable. The education will focus on helping the patient identifying the aggravating factors to her condition and the need to avoid them. Furthermore, proper dietary intake and skincare techniques will be recommended for the patient. Furthermore, the patient will be educated on proper wound care practices. Inappropriate management of the wounds could result in septic infections that may result in other complications. The patient will be educated on the need to wash the wounds appropriately and keep them aseptic. Other than wound hygiene, proper dietary intake is also required to facilitate wound healing (Juliandri, et al., 2019). The patient will be educated on the need to consume a lot of fruits and vegetables to boost the immune system.

Disease Prevention: The disease prevention measures will include avoiding skin irritants and maintain good skin hygiene practices.

 

REFLECTION: The clinical experience was educating and created an opportunity to understand the skin conditions better. On the other hand, there are many skin conditions and this makes it difficult to make the right diagnosis of the skill illnesses a patient presents with a glance. The differential diagnosis helps in further analyzing the possible illness a patient presents with and the correct medicine to manage the condition (Liu, et al., 2020). Obtaining relevant patient history is important in making the right diagnosis as evident during the clinical experience. I took time to understand the patients’ social and cultural factors that could affect the outcomes of the treatment process. Furthermore, there are no definite laboratory tests for diagnosing skin lesions unless they are related to fungal or bacterial infections.

Given another opportunity, I would embrace collaboration and consult with other healthcare providers in the department to help in the patient diagnosis process. Consulting with experienced healthcare providers could help reach the most accurate diagnosis of the skin condition. I agree with the preceptor based on the evidence.

Furthermore, providing relevant patient education is important. In this case, addressing the psychological needs characterized by the worries associate with the skin condition was important. The patient managed to calm down and believed that ion would improve.

Assessment

Essential (Primary) Hypertension (ICD10 I10): Given the symptoms and high blood pressure (156/92 mmhg), classified as stage 2. Once the organic cause of hypertension has been ruled out, such as renal, adrenal or thyroid, this diagnosis is confirmed.

Differential diagnosis:

Ø Renal artery stenosis (ICD10 I70.1)

Ø Chronic kidney disease (ICD10 I12.9)

Ø Hyperthyroidism (ICD10 E05.90)

Plan

Diagnosis is based on the clinical evaluation through history, physical examination, and routine laboratory tests to assess risk factors, reveal identifiable causes and detect target-organ damage, including evidence of cardiovascular disease.

These basic laboratory tests are:

· CMP

· Complete blood count

· Lipid profile

· Thyroid-stimulating hormone

· Urinalysis

· Electrocardiogram

Ø Pharmacological treatment: 

The treatment of choice in this case would be:

Thiazide-like diuretic and/or a CCB

· Hydrochlorothiazide tab 25 mg, Initial dose: 25 mg orally once daily.

Ø Non-Pharmacologic treatment:

· Weight loss

· Healthy diet (DASH dietary pattern): Diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products with reduced content of saturated and trans l fat

· Reduced intake of dietary sodium: <1,500 mg/d is optimal goal but at least 1,000 mg/d reduction in most adults

· Enhanced intake of dietary potassium

· Regular physical activity (Aerobic): 90–150 min/wk

· Tobacco cessation

· Measures to release stress and effective coping mechanisms.

Education

· Provide with nutrition/dietary information.

· Daily blood pressure monitoring at home twice a day for 7 days, keep a record, bring the record on the next visit with her PCP

· Instruction about medication intake compliance.

· Education of possible complications such as stroke, heart attack, and other problems.

· Patient was educated on course of hypertension, as well as warning signs and symptoms, which could indicate the need to attend the E.R/U.C. Answered all pt. questions/concerns. Pt verbalizes understanding to all

Follow-ups/Referrals

· Evaluation with PCP in 1 weeks for managing blood pressure and to evaluate current hypotensive therapy. Urgent Care visit prn.

· No referrals needed at this time.
