The biological description of a patient that needs to be analyzed properly is given below and an action plan has to be chalked out regarding how he should be treated. As the result of a fall, the 102 years old ulcer patient has little mobility which greatly affects his confidence. He suffers from loss of appetite and on some days, does not eat at all. Moreover, he has to get treatment for ulcer also. Considering the special needs of this patient, it is imperative that a nurse should be competent in dealing with biological issues that the patient is facing and the nurse should not feel anxious. It is very common that student nurses often become very nervous while dealing with such kind of patients. Moreover, the subject of biology is a cause of concern for many students. “The subject of biology was identified as a cause of anxiety amongst student nurses on the common foundation programme (CFP), both verbally and in each of the written course evaluations, at a college of nursing and midwifery in the South of England”.
In the above-mentioned case, we have to deal with several specific biological issues arising out of the frail condition of the patient as a result of fall, the patient’s ulcer, and the patient’s lack of appetite. Moreover, we should not forget that the patient is 102 years old. We can easily understand that that the patient’s age has something to do with the patient’s multiple ailments and afflictions. The nurse, in order to be effective, must have good knowledge about the biology of older women. The nurse must know how to deal with the patient’s frailty, what are the underlying reasons for the course of treatment that is prescribed. how an ulcer patient should be treated. how to deal with the patient’s poor appetite from a biological point of view. .
