Rasmussen College Author Note


This paper is being submitted on Month XX, 2016, for Instructor?s Name NUR3177


Health Assessment course. 1 COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH ASSESSMENT 2 Complete Health History


Health histories are discussed in your text on page 44. Introduce your client. Please use


initials or a ?fake? name if you are doing this paper on a real person. On page 46, the text


discusses basic information to collect from your client. Where does your client live (only a city


and state, do not specifics, like street address or other identifying information)? Lived there all


his/her life? Career? General demeanor and appearance? Just need to include some basic


demographic information. No need to do a chief complaint or other items listed after page 46.


This section can be very short (but at least 3-5 sentences). If you have a pediatric client, be sure


to also review Chapter 25 when completing this assessment. For example, the health history


requires additional notes (see p. 926) Developmental Stage Assessment


In this section, identify what developmental stage your client is in based on Erikson?s


developmental stages. (Don?t forget citation) You will find information on Erikson?s stages in


your e-book on pages 93-94. Please discuss specifically if your client has achieved their current


stage or not. Support your decision from your assessment of the patient and detail what supports


this conclusion. Medical History


See page 50 of your e-book for help writing this section. Please bullet point each illness,


include brief summary of illness based on questions provided on p 50. Please see example: HTN- Diagnosed in 2012 by PCP who is currently managing with medications, dietary


changes, and exercise. Well managed, denies difficulty with medications, but does not


follow prescribed diet or exercise routinely. Has never been hospitalized or experienced


complications Surgical History COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH ASSESSMENT 3 See page 50, bullet point surgeries with additional information included as stated on p. 50 Allergies


-This section can be in bullet format if there are many allergies. Don?t forget to include


medication, latex, foods and environmental allergens along with patient reaction. This is also


detailed on p. 50 Prescription and Over-the-Counter Prescriptions


-This section can also be bulleted.


-Include the drug name, dosage and frequency.


-Don?t forget to include why he/she is on the medication. Cultural Assessment


Please use Chapter 5 and the EACAT tool found in your e-book on page 143 (within Chp.


5) to write this section. Document concisely in third person. An example of how to document is


on page 145. Family Health History


List of familial disease, may bullet point. At a minimum, should contain age and health


status of spouse, children, siblings, and patient?s parents. Preferred is to expand to patient?s


grandparents, aunts, and uncles. See page 54-56 of your e-book for help with this session. Three Generation Genogram


Please see page 56 for an example of a three generation genogram. Your genogram can be


a separate file (i.e. power point presentation). It does not need to be embedded into your paper.


You can also do it by hand and scan it in/take a picture of it and upload it with this paper. Social (including psychosocial) History


Information for this section can be found on pages 57-67 of your e-book. Please elaborate


on each of the following as described on pages 57-67 your e-book. Write concisely in third COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH ASSESSMENT 4 person. Do not write out questions asked. Example: Alcohol: Drinks about 2 beers per week,


pattern has not changed. First exposure was 20 yrs of age. Denies drinking alone, driving, and


has never lost memory or blacked out.

-A: 8 bright red, circumscribed, and flat areas, about 3mm each on torso


-P: Cherry angiomas are most often on the trunk of the body. The cause is unknown and they are


considered pathologically insignificant (Estes, 2014) (For the Pathophysiology, ?P,? provide


explanation (pathophysiology)


Explanation of ENAP format (p. 69). ?E? -Examination component, what will physically be examined. To write this

your findings from your client exam that were abnormal, unexpected findings. If none, document ?None?


?P? explains the pathophysiology behind any documented abnormal findings. Here you


will explain the pathophysiology of any abnormal assessment you have documented. If


there were no abnormal findings for the system assessed, document ?None? here. Summary


Summarize your findings of the patient. What is the pertinent information that you will


want to report and/or follow-up on? What are issues needing immediate attention? Any findings


that put the patient at risk? Any indication that the patient is ready for enhanced health promotion


in a specific area? This section should almost be an introduction to your care plan that you will


be creating in week 10 from this assessment (but not your actual care plan please). What were the


highlights of the assessment?




The final portion of the paper is the references section. The references section gives


complete information about all of the sources that are cited in the paper. For Rasmussen papers,
