Konochuk would like to heal, go back to college and work.
CONSENT/EXPLANATION OF CASE MANAGEMENT
I explained my role as medical case manager and Ms. Konochuk verbalized understanding. She read and willingly signed the Authorization for Release of Medical Information form.
Denied any legal representation.
Ms. Konochuk is young and in good reported health. She has multiple injuries to recover from and will be non weight bearing for at least 3 months. The Official Disability Guidelines for a rib fracture is 28-46 days; pelvic fracture 99 to 204 days, concussion is 18 to 31 days, whiplash 25 to 41 days, hand lacerations 15 to 92 days. Treatment to date has been appropriate.
1. Contact Ms. Kononchuk and her mother weekly for update on her medical status.
2. Contact Beaumont hospital CM weekly for update on treatment and transfer plans.
3. Attend appointments with Ms. Konochuk once they have been made.
4. Assist in facilitation of physician…

A hamate fracture is a break in a small wrist bone called the hamate. The hamate is located below and between your pinky and ring fingers. It is shaped like a triangle and has a hook-like extension.
There are two types of hamate fracture:
Type 1. This type involves the hook part of the bone.
Type 2. This type involves the body of the bone.
This condition may be caused by:
A sudden injury, such as:
Falling on an outstretched arm with a clenched fist.…
A fracture is considered compound when the skin is broken and the bone protrudes from the open fracture/wound. There is sometimes considerable soft tissue damage and a higher risk of infection from the open fracture.
Immobilizing the injured leg will help to prevent causing more damage to the soft tissue around the break. Immobilization may also keep from causing injury to the femoral artery which could be fatal. Keeping the femur as still as possible after the break may also help doctors…
Instructor Murphy did an excellent job of describing the skeletal system in more detail for us in her recent post. I though it would be fun to talk about some of the different types of fractures that can occur.
Simple fractures or closed fractures occur when a bone breaks without breaking through the skin. In general, these fractures are treated with immobilization and may require surgical repair. Compound fractures can also be called open fractures and are named as such because…
urine which can irritate bladder and in turn it might hurt to void Potter & Perry, 5th edition). Promotion of required amount of fluids is necessary, she should be drinking from 1500 to 2000 ml of fluids, and try to avoid fluid intake two hours before bedtime to regulate incontinence (Brunner & Suddarth, 2nd edition).
I would also promote absorbent products which are cost efficient and so hard to notice that Mrs. Black could even wear a dress without having to worry about bulkiness as they are…
Eleanor with pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) based on her history and examination. Pelvic floor dysfunction is the inability to control the pelvic floor muscles and failure to function properly is due to old age, obesity, pregnancy, menopause, and a vaginal delivery (Bartling, 2016). Its symptoms include urinary problems, constipation, a heavy feeling or bulge in the pelvis, and pain. Eleanor presents a majority of the risks factors and symptoms. She is more likely to have PFD since she is…
replacing bone and mimicking their structure for, various applications.
When looking at biological materials, to determine their effectiveness as a scaffold or sufficient structure for various other uses, often they are tested for their resistance to fracture. This is referred to as fracture propagation.
Bamboo is well known for its sufficient mechanical properties, and great flexibility. It also has great fracture toughness. Bamboo is considered to be a bio composite, meaning it…
I am attaching two photos of Skyler Yang who has endure scratches on both sides of his face; one scratch is right below his right eye and the other is nearby his nose on the left side of his face. He received these scratches after he had spent the day with his mother.
Specifically with this email, I want to address my concerns regarding my children's safety. Although these injuries may seem minor, I am concern that it could have resulted in more seriousness if the scratch would have made…
Multi-stage fracturing is an advanced drilling technology that enhances the production capabilities through maximizing the contact area of unconventional wells with the reservoir production zones. During the fracturing process, a special fluid (primarily a mixture of sand and water) is blown out at a high pressure into the shale rock formation creating channels through which hydrocarbons can easily migrate to the well. Multi-stage fracturing is a combination of fracturing and plugging processes.…
