Ms. Julia Jones, a 68-year old African
American woman, has just been diagnosed with primary open-angle glaucoma. Her ophthalmologist has explained the
pathophysiology of the disease to her and is trying to select the best
treatment option for her. You are the
nurse working with the ophthalmologist, and Ms. Jones has asked you about the
eye drops the doctor has recommended. Mrs. Jones’s physician has recommended
Combigan, one drop in the right eye every 12 hours. Your client has never administered eye drops
and she does not know anything about the medication her ophthalmologist has
prescribed. She is interested in how
the medication works, the side effects, how it is administered, and why it is
so important in the treatment of her glaucoma.
Develop a nursing care plan using
template directly after these instructions to address Ms. Julia Jones concerns.
