The article by Steen (2007) is a Meta-analysis study focusing on perineal tears and episiotomy how they heal and the process involved. The findings were that most women experience pain due to perineal wounds, mothers should be asked about any concerns about the healing process of perineal wounds and most importantly, midwives should be trained to take care of these wounds and provide adequate pain relief. Developing a trusting relationship with a woman is also very important as this will promote good communication, opportunities to discuss perineal care, early detection of a delay in healing and possible infection. The article entitled, the need to avoid the routine use of episiotomy is a systematic review about the use of episiotomy. A series of randomized trials included 6 randomized controlled trials with 6600 women.

When a nurse witnesses another health care provider “acting in a way that could endanger the health or safety of a patiet, they should make a report of what they witnessed.” (Austin, Brooke, & Glenn, 2004, p. 363 ) The concept of moral agency should guide the nurse when reporting witnessed or suspected malpractice.

While in the hospital, Sara receives a call from Jesse’s principal informing her of Jesse’s suspension. On the car ride home she notices a bruise on his arm from a needle and assumes he has been using drugs. Jesse angrily explains how he has been donating blood that gave Kate platelets behind the family’s back, in order to “save” his sister. After two weeks in the hospital, Kate developed an infection that placed her in a coma on a respirator, which is “saving” her for the time being.
I learned how important it is to assess patients’ pain thoroughly and to identify the site and pain intensity. My patient was previously medicated for abdominal pain with a narcotic because her pain was assumed to be related to the C-section but when the pain lingered; I did an in-depth assessment of the patient’s pain and determined that she was having gas pain and was constipated. The patient was treated with Simethicone and was given a suppository. If this situation arose again, I would be better at assessing the patient’s pain to know the exact site and the intensity. 6.
Malnutrition eventually affects other systems of the body. It can lead to things such as diarrhea, anemia, fatigue, disorientation, anxiety, irritability, tremors, amenorrhea, decreased immune system, and even slowed growth.

Therefore this project will be based on constipation among older adult with mental health. I will be discussing and analysing in line to clinical practise, followed by reflection and conclusion. I took it upon my interest to know how constipation affect older adult with mental health in line with the following; causes, medication, activities and nutrition.
