Case 679 ________________________________________ CLINICAL HISTORY The patient is a 10 year old female, who underwent liver transplantation at the age of 2 for Alagille syndrome-related end-stage liver disease. Prior to transplantation, she received 36 mg of thymoglobulin followed by 24 mg post transplant, and tacrolimus 2 mg twice daily. Her immediate post transplant course was complicated by a pulmonary thromboembolism and acute cellular rejection which were treated with corticosteroids and antibiotics. Approximately one year after transplant, the patient presented with flu-like symptoms that included fever, rhinorrhea, body aches and an EBV titer of 30 million copies/ml. She was admitted for ganciclovir and CytoGam administration with EBV surveillance.
Eight workers at other Kaiser hospitals and the chain’s regional office were among those implicated, said Kathleen Billingsley, deputy director of the Public Health Department’s Center for Health Care Quality. Ornstein (2009). The steps Kaiser took to protect Suleman’s privacy were not aggressive enough. Kaiser workers were still being investigated by the California Office of Health Information Integrity, which will decide whether individual penalties will be imposed. Kaiser told the public health agency on Feb. 5 that two employees inappropriately accessed the records of Suleman, who gave birth on Jan. 26 to the world’s only surviving octuplets, according to a Public Health Department report issued Thursday.
If Dr. Hilbun had stayed at the hospital for a few hours after the procedure he could have kept a closer eye on the patient. When he did leave he could have called the nursing staff that was on Halls’ case to check on her condition. By doing that he would have known about her worsening condition before it was too late. In conclusion, Hilbuns’ neglect cost Hall her life. He could have provided the correct standard of care to his patient, which was his duty when he agreed to treat Hall.

One of the latest news topics was a California resident moving to Oregon where Death With Dignity is legal. Brittany Maynard was diagnosed with level 2 astrocytoma; a form of brain cancer. The cancer soon elevated to grade 4, glioblastoma. Glioblastoma is the same cancer that took my uncle’s life. Death With Dignity gives her the option to take life-ending medication if her dying process becomes unbearably painful, so she can pass away gently and peacefully at home in the arms of her loved ones.
While studying the surgical patient tracer worksheet, one of the most serious deficiencies identified was the patient history and physical not being done within twenty-four hours of admission. In fact, the patient medical records were completed after more than seventy-two hours of patient admission. Documenting medical records in an appropriate time frame is an important standard in the joint commission accreditation process. The Joint Commission requires an accredited hospital to have written policies regarding timely documentation into medical records. Eighty percent of a patient’s diagnosis is done by the identification of their current and past medical histories.
Major depression whether primary or secondary to disease process can lead to death. The UCLA Department of Medicine states “Depression disorders cause a substantial amount of under recognized morbidity and mortality in primary care patients.”(Silverman, (2004). Proper screening and treatment can produce better outcomes for soldiers, dependants, and adults eighteen and older. With the implementation of algorithms this plan will improve screening and treatment for major depression. (Mulligan, 2005).No nurse directed research was found.
