Mobility and Elimination

A 67-year-old male is admitted to the surgical ward after hip repair surgery and develops a clostridium difficile infection. The learner must put on proper personal protective equipment and perform an initial assessment, including a focused musculoskeletal exam. The learner should notice that the patient needs to be cleaned–including appropriate perineal care and wound care of the right hip. In addition, the learner must administer medication and then apply a gait belt prior to ambulating the patient with a walker. The learner must perform evidence based care and apply TED hose and SCDs to prevent DVTs before finally washing their hands.

Learning Objectives

‘- Assess a patient who is post hip surgery with C diff infection
– Use appropriate infection prevention precautions for a patient on contact isolation
– Safely mobilize a patient
– Apply good wound care techniques
– Use appropriate tools for the prevention of thromboembolism
