PARKINSON’S DISEASE 10
ASSESSMENT 2
CASE REPORT
(PARKINSON’S DISEASE)
INTRODUCTION
Parkinson’s disease is a highly complex neurodegenerative health problem which impairs the normal quality of life. The patient fees inability to move and do his normal daily activities. In addition to degenerating cells and neurons in the
ain, he suffers from a reduction in the concentration of neurotransmitters between the neurons. It causes tremors when the neurons perform the transmission of impulse through the Central Nervous System (Grover, Somaiya, Kumar and Awasthi,2015).
The report presents the case study of a 76-year-old patient Mr. Charles Williamson who is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The work also presents the multidisciplinary clinical interventions performed for his treatment. Firstly, it describes the initial diagnosis of the patient at the time of admission to the hospital. Then it illustrates the Nursing Problems faced by the healthcare staff while performing the treatment of the patient during his stay at the hospital. Thirdly, the report offers the Nursing Management and Interventions involved in the treatment of disease and identifies two nursing problems with their assessment, interventions and medication management. Lastly, the work elaborates the discharge planning for the patient of Parkinson’s disease mainly focusing on the scenario of Mr. Williamson. The study presents the overall process of treatment and necessary initiatives taken to reduce the symptoms and enabling the patient to live improved living standards(Grover et al,2015).
PRIMARY ADMISSION DIAGNOSIS
Mr.Charles Williamson is a 76-year-old man admitted to the hospital for respite care for Parkinson’s disease(PD). He was first diagnosed with the PD ten years ago. He has a family history of PD as his mother also had the disease for 22 years. He is alert but slightly anxious with tremors in his upper limbs. He has Mask-like facial appearance and hoarse monotonous voice. His physical examination diagnosed normal BP (120/72) with orthostasis. Heart Rate is 76. He can arise comfortably from chair without pushing it with hands but he exhibits a noticeable drag or scuffing of the right foot. He is slow and rigid in movement with unstable balance. Recently he had fallen at home and sustained with
uises and a skin tear at his right lateral lower leg. He also reports of lack of appetite and constipation. When he drinks water, he starts to cough.
The Parkinson’s disease is a complex neurodegenerative illness of Central Nervous System. It adversely affects the movement of the body and causes tremor most often. The patient experiences rigidity, slowness of movements, and walking difficulties. Depression and Dementia are common symptoms of PD. Sleeping and Emotional disorders also are mainly noticed in disease (Mandal,2017). The people having a family history of PD are more likely to get the disease. Slow degeneration of cells and neurons in Substantia Nigra part of the
ain (known as Pars Compacta) is the main cause of PD. Substantia Nigra creates dopamine, a neurotransmitter which transmits the signal between various parts of the
ain to facilitate coordination between them. The disease observes a considerable loss of Dopamine increasing with age. When the neurons get affected by the PD, they produce very less amount of Dopamine resulting into its unavailability in binding to the postsynaptic receptors (Robertson,n.d.).

NURSING PROBLEMS
During the hospital stay, the patients with Parkinson’s disease may suffer from many issues like changes in mental behavior, cere
al hemo
hage, falls, psychiatric symptoms, and infection. The falls are the most common cause of accidents in the hospital which render the PD patients immobile and
ing them to emergency wards. Therefore the Nursing staff must be educated to deal with these patients successfully (Robertson,n.d.).
Cessation or delay in Anti-Parkinson treatments often induce improper clearance of
onchial airways, distu
ed thinking, the impaired capacity of communication, improper intake of nutrition, problems in swallowing, a
ested mobility, higher risk of falls and subsequent injury, improper coping mechanism, and lack of awareness. A prolonged Levodopa therapy may result in drug toxicity in PD patient which causes hallucination, confusion and decreasing effectiveness of the drug on the body.
Due to unavailability of a proper cure for the disease, the healthcare aims to control the PD symptoms...
