1. Nursing Process:
a. Diagnosis: What is another nursing diagnosis you might
want to assess for Mr. Benjamin?
b. Planning Goals: On the care plan, rewrite the goals/expected
outcomes for Acute Pain so that they will have all the required components.
Assume that today’s date is January 4.
2. Self-Knowledge: What beliefs, values, biases, or
emotional responses might interfere with your ability to provide the best care
to Mr. Benjamin?
3. Think critically about the context. Is there anything in
this situation that you have seen before? Identify any familiar elements. For
example, you may have an elderly male relative, even if you have never cared
for an 80-year-old patient before.
