Re: Mrs. Emily Ryan, 59 years old

Dear Anna D Souza

Mrs. Emily Ryan, who was admitted into our New Life Hospital, was diagnosed with an
infected spleen. A severe viral infection (splenomegaly) was noted which required
immediate attention.

The patient is a widower and has one daughter who is married and works as a lecturer, the
one who brought her to the hospital. She also has a brother who visits regularly.
Nursing Writing Tests 6 - 10

Apart from a problem related to food poisoning which occurred once and high blood
pressure (the patient still has high BP), Mrs. Ryan has no previous medical history.

The patient was prescribed aspirin 100 mg (post-operatively) and advised to continue the
use of pneumococcal (pneumovax), meningococcal and haemophilus influenzae type b
(Hib) vaccines. There will strictly be no contact with water and dressing on the surgery site
is requested to be done daily. Follow-up FBE tests are recommended as well.

It is suggested that the patient should not perform vigorous exercises and that the patient
should avoid travelling until they have made a full recovery.

Please, contact me with any queries.

Yours sincerely
Charge Nurse

Re: Mrs Natasha Dobby, 62 years old

Dear Margaret

Mrs Natasha Dobby, who underwent hip fractured surgery on 17th of July, is being discharged
into your care. On 16th of July, she tripped over and fell down, badly injuring her hip. On
diagnosis, broken pieces were noted which called for immediate action. Surgery was performed
successfully. The patient was shifted to a specialized geriatric-orthopedic rehabilitation ward on
18th of July when the condition was noted to be a bit normal.

Rehabilitation treatment was initiated and was offered mobilization (the patient was encouraged
to do exercises which promote strength and recovery). By July 23, the patient was able to walk
short distances with the help from her husband. She requires extra help. Her husband wants a
physiotherapist to come to their house to assist her in gaining much more mobility (for her
speedy recovery). Her husband is not able to assist her as he himself walks with a walking stick.

Please, send a physiotherapist from your agency to the patients house to help the patient
recover sooner. Please, contact her husband on the number: +61 2 9126 9264. Her addressed is
added too. Her Address: 201/275 Alfred St, North Sydney, NSW 2060.

Natasha Dobby has been a patient of Osteoporosis too since 2009.

Re: Mrs Catherine Tracy, 51 years old

Dear Kenzy Jaida

Mrs Catherine Tracy was admitted into our Apollo Health Agency due to serious injury to her
backbone on 19th September, 2009. The patient was suffering from pain or an intense stinging
(sensation must have been caused due to the damaged nerve fibres in the spinal cord). Other
changes that which were noted include loss of movement and loss of bowel or bladder control.
Nursing Writing Tests 6 - 10

The patient had difficulty in balancing or walking properly for a couple of days. It took more than
a week for the patient to get recovered to a certain extent. By Oct 25, the patient began to show
some signs of improvement. The patient was able to walk with the help of her daughter who
used to come regularly to see her.

The patient was discharged from the hospital on 15th November. The patient was doing well.
There were no problems (apart from usual complaints of pain in the neck which would perhaps
take some more time to go off). Her daughter wants someone to come to their house to care
for her personally.

Please, note that Catherine Tracy has BP and sugar problems too.

Please, contact me with any queries.

Yours sincerely

of weight loss too (lost almost 3 Kg body weight).

The patient was kept in the hospital for 20 days. During this time, the patient didnt complain of
any pain. As there was no need of any surgery, so it had not been performed.

The patients condition was normal at the time of discharge from the hospital on 8th of July. Her
husband requested for a nurse to come to their house for her personal care too.

Please, take a note of this too that Elma Edith is a patient of high BP. She has been suffering
