Case Study, Chapter 1, Foundations of Psychiatric–Mental Health Nursing

Case Study 1

Maria Torres is a 23-year-old Hispanic single mother of two and is enrolled as a student at the local community college. She works 30 hours a week as a waitress at a local restaurant in addition to her coursework. Maria states that she is “excited about her future career as a computer programmer.” She manages her living expenses marginally but states that she is reasonably happy and satisfied with her life. She states that she is getting good grades in her college courses. Her mother helps care for her two small children when Maria is at school, studying, or working. (Learning Objectives 1 and 4)

  1. Based on this information, what personal factors or characteristics would reflect Maria’s current state of mental health or illness according to the information in Chapter 1?
  1. What if Maria’s situation suddenly changed and she lost her housing? What concerns would you, as the nurse, have for Maria and her children now? How would you counsel Maria to obtain the needed assistance and support she requires in the face of her new situation?

Case Study 2

The student nurse is accompanying the psychiatric nurse in a nursing assessment of a newly admitted patient. The psychiatric nurse tells the student nurse that the patient is profoundly depressed and has refused to bathe or eat for the last week. The psychiatric nurse stressed that all patients admitted to a hospital for psychiatric treatment will have a diagnosis from the DSM stated on the chart by the psychiatrist. The nurse explains that the nursing diagnosis will consider past and present responses to actual mental health problems and provides a conceptual framework for identifying interventions for the abnormality the patient is experiencing. (Learning Objective 2)

  1. The student nurse asked the psychiatric nurse what type of patient information the DSM is associated with.
  1. How does the DSM diagnosis affect patient care?
  1. What information do the DSM criteria impart to the multidisciplinary team members?
