MODULE 3 SCENARIO ILLUSTRATING NURSING CARE FRAMED BY THE ROY ADAPTATION MODEL UTILIZING THE NURSING PROCESS

Groups 1 & 3

Mrs. M. is a 37-year-old single mother with two school-age children. Mrs. M. suffered multiple facial injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident several months ago. The injuries have healed without complications, but she has moderate residual scarring.

Assessment of Mrs. M. begins with the behaviors manifested from the four adaptive modes. The nurse uses observational skills, intuition, measurements, and interviewing skills to collect data. The nurse involves Mrs. M. in the assessment to verify the nurse’s own perceptions. The nurse verifies that Mrs. M. has generally adapted well following the motor vehicle accident. The exception is the self-concept mode: Some of her behaviors are ineffective in relation to adaptation, as evidenced by Mrs. M.’s avoidance of social gatherings, wearing dark glasses and big hats, and wearing heavy makeup to cover her scars.

Next, the nurse and Mrs. M. set goals to promote adaptation. Goal setting for Mrs. M. within the framework involves statements of measurable behavioral outcomes of nursing care that will promote adaptation related to body image within the self-concept adaptive mode. The nurse, in collaboration with Mrs. M., chooses interventions based on current best practices to promote adaptation by either changing stimuli or strengthening Mrs. M.’s adaptive processes. Evaluation focuses on judging the effectiveness of nursing interventions in relation to Mrs. M.’s behaviors. In addition, if any other nursing problems are uncovered during the assessment, the nurse addresses those problems simultaneously using the process described and incorporating best practices to provide appropriate nursing care.
