The individual nursing cases should be copied and distributed as arranged by the trainer A copy of the. corresponding references should be available at the same time. As an individual works through a case study it is preferable that the case questions first be answered by. the trainee and then shared with the trainer discussing the learning points and clarifying any incorrect. answers using the corresponding references, A less reinforcing method in the interest of time is to have the trainer supply the answers to the trainee. AFTER they have completed the case study and have the trainee follow up errors by reviewing the. corresponding references,Table of Contents,Case Study 1.

A 67 year old Hispanic male presented to a hospital emergency department with a three week history of. night sweats weight loss nausea shortness of breath and a productive cough A chest x ray CXR was. done and revealed extensive bilateral cavitary disease Per hospital protocol sputum specimens were. collected and resulted in positive Acid Fast Bacilli AFB with 10 organisms per high power field see. Appendix A He was diagnosed with active pulmonary TB. Further evaluation revealed a medical history of hepatitis C and a social history that included previous. intravenous drug use heroin cigarette and alcohol use incarceration and a hospitalization 30 years ago. with a gunshot wound that resulted in a nephrectomy and colostomy which was later re anastomosed. 1 What are some potential barriers to completion of treatment for this patient. A Cigarette and alcohol use,B Previous history of heroin addiction. C Hepatitis C positivity,D All of the above, Six weeks into treatment his isolate was reported to be susceptible to all first line drugs and EMB was.
discontinued The remaining three drugs were changed to twice weekly dosing by DOT After 2 months of. therapy the PZA was discontinued and sputa collected were AFB smear and culture positive The patient. was adherent to his medication tolerated the drug regimen and had resolution of symptoms He was. cooperative with the public health worker and requested to self administer his medications. 2 Should the patient be taken off DOT and allowed to self administer. A Yes allowing him to self administer will help build trust and rapport with the patient. B Yes it is general practice to allow most patients to self administer during the continuation phase. of treatment, C No explain to him that all patients stay on DOT because no one trusts TB patients. D No explain that DOT is the standard of care for all TB patients. DOT is the standard of care for all patients diagnosed with TB disease regardless of circumstances. however the nurse case manager provided this patient with a one month supply of medications to. self administer and instructed him to return to the clinic every month to refill his prescription After 2. months of self administered treatment sputa were obtained and smears and cultures were reported. as positive The culture grew Mycobacterium tuberculosis M tuberculosis and susceptibility studies. continued to show that the isolate was sensitive to all first line medications. 3 What is the most likely cause for the persistently positive cultures. A It is probably a laboratory error, B He is probably not absorbing his medication due to a previous colon resection. C He is probably not taking his medication, D He has treatment failure due to his Hepatitis C co infection. Nurse Case Studies 11, Due to the persistently positive culture the nurse case manager contacted the prescribing physician A. repeat CXR was ordered and revealed continuing cavitary changes in the right upper lobe In speaking. with the patient he identified that he was given medications to self administer but did not take them. because he developed intolerable side effects A pill count was conducted and confirmed the patient had. not receiveded treatment for two months, 4 What should be included in the evaluation process.
A Collection of three sputum specimens,B Evaluate hearing. C Repeat a TST,D All of the above, A thorough evaluation that included three sputum specimens and repeat drug susceptibility testing was. done TB medications were restarted and given by DOT Repeat drug susceptibility testing indicated no. drug resistance and after 2 months of anti TB therapy sputum smears and cultures converted to AFB. negative and symptoms improved The patient completed adequate TB treatment successfully. Reflection, In this scenario the patient had an extensive medical history which included multiple biological and. social factors that pose as potential barriers to treatment completion Though he was cooperative with. the public health worker it is important to remember that DOT is the standard of care for all patients. diagnosed with TB disease DOT allows the health care provider to identify and address challenges with. treatment and is associated with improved treatment success. DOT allows the health department to identify and manage intolerable side effects The patient was. classified as a treatment failure because he was four months into treatment and had not converted his. culture to negative The patient was forthcoming with the physician about not taking his medication. therefore a pill count was conducted to verify how much medication was taken It is essential to. determine if the patient took monotherapy as this could potentially lead to drug resistance to the TB. medications,12 Nurse Case Studies, 1 What are some potential barriers to completion of treatment for this patient. Answer D All of the above, Rationale One role of the nurse case manager is to identify potential social and biological.
barriers to treatment which can include current or previous substance use and Hepatitis C. positivity 17, 2 Should the patient be taken off DOT and allowed to self administer. Answer D No explain that DOT is the standard of care for all TB patients. Rationale DOT is the standard of care recognized by experts in the field and has been. associated with improved treatment success 17, 3 What is the most likely cause for the persistently positive cultures. Answer C He is probably not taking his medication, Rationale Although there are many reasons why a culture will remain positive treatment not. received by DOT is an indicator that the medications are being taken improperly 17. 4 What should be included in the evaluation process. Answer A Collection of three sputum specimens, Rationale Patients who are being reconsidered for treatment should have 3 additional sputa. collected and repeat culture and drug susceptibility testing 17. 17 Nahid P Dorman S E Alipanah N Barry P M Brozek J L Cattamanchi A Chaisson L H Chaisson R E Daley C L Grzemska M.
