This paper, responds to a case scenario of Ms. G., a 23-year-old diabetic, who is admitted to the hospital with a cellulitis of her left lower leg.
Basing on symptoms, signs and laboratory findings, the…

It can be inferred from these findings that there is a rapidly erythematoes spreading, as well as an elevated White blood cell count. In this case, this cellulitis has affected the lower leg. Staphylococcus aureus bacteria are responsible for cellulitis, thus, treating the patient with Empiric IV antibiotics I would be the most appropriate remedy for this condition.
The subjective, as well as the objective data in relation to the case of Ms. G are significant in regard to follow-up diagnostic/laboratory testing, education, and future preventative care, because they are the basis for the follow-up diagnostic or laboratory testing, education, and future preventative care. In this case, subjective and objective data are vital in so far as laboratory testing and future preventive care is concerned. This is because first, through obtaining the subjective and objective data, the clinician would be able to ascertain the baseline physical, as well as mental data concerning the patient. Secondly, they help the clinician to establish the nursing diagnoses and plan for the future patient care. Through the subjective and objective data provided, the clinician is able to evaluate the appropriateness of nursing interventions for purposes of finding a resolution of the identified pathophysiology problems of the patient.
Factors that are likely to delay wound healing In the case of Ms G, include the 2 cm diameter, 1 cm deep, open wound that is located above the medial malleaolus. This is because the open wound serves as common portal of the entry of bacteria. This, thus, implies that in order to prevent or reduce on delays of wound healing, the open wound needs to treated

The Aborigine population has higher levels of poverty, which characterizes the remote areas that they inhabit. According to Reading (2010), the burden of chronic diseases is extremely high relative to the mainstream population in Australia. The disparities arise from economic marginalization, which leads to poverty and poor health.
According to the paper more problems arise as at advanced stages of life, patients are usually besotted with multiple comorbidities requiring pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions, which might interfere with each other. Evidence based, judicious decisions therefore need to be taken at each passing moment, making the task onerous as well as difficult.
Some of the pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions, such patients’ are subjected to, may be contradictory in nature and may require emergency treatment. Evidence based, judicious decisions therefore need to be taken at each instance, making the task onerous as well as difficult for the nursing practitioner.
Although blood keeps developing microscopic clots in all veins in the body, yet the clots are continuously disintegrated by the body itself. Thus there normally exists a balance between clot formulation and decomposition. However, there is great verisimilitude of occurrence of clotting if this balance between clot formulation and disintegration shatters.
Staphylococcus Infection Abstract This essay is concerned with staphylococcal infections, in particular those caused by staphylococcus aureus, focusing in particular on urinary tract infections. Included are descriptions of the bacteria, risk factors, treatment and avoidance and control.
The negative effects of normal microbial flora are that they are “major causes of opportunistic infections that develop under permissive conditions”1 of lowered host defences and immunocompromisation. Thesis Statement: The purpose of this paper is to examine “opportunistic” microbial infections; and to investigate examples for bacterial, parasitic and viral opportunistic infections, and the factors that shift the host-pathogen balance to favour the infection.
Some people carry these bacteria and will never be infected by them. More than 30 species of staph bacteria have been discovered and they can so many types of illnesses such one kind of staph cause urinary tract infections.
