Start of the CASE . . . Mr. Edwards is an obese 71 year old who quit smoking 20 years ago. He has a history of hypertension that has been under good control with diet and use of a single antihypertensive drug. Since he retired from fire-fighting over 15 years ago, he maintains a sedentary lifestyle. He is a client in a skilled care rehabilitation unit while he is recuperating from recent knee surgery. He has been making good progress and preparing for discharge, which is planned for today.
You are a student nurse who cared for him last week; at that time you noticed that he was a neatly groomed gentleman (in spite of his recent surgery at that time), remained actively engaged in conversation with you throughout that day, and was known to the nursing staff as being an early riser and taking pride in keeping his room in order. You are assigned to care for him again today.
