Assignment: For this assignment, research an environmental factor that poses a threat to the health or safety of infants and develop a health promotion that can be presented to caregivers

Assessment Description

The growth, development, and learned behaviors that occur during the first year of infancy have a direct effect on the individual throughout a lifetime. For this assignment, research an environmental factor that poses a threat to the health or safety of infants and develop a health promotion that can be presented to caregivers.

Create a 10-12 slide PowerPoint health promotion, with speaker notes, that outlines a teaching plan. For the presentation of your PowerPoint, use Loom to create a voice over or a video. Include an additional slide for the Loom link at the beginning, and an additional slide for references at the end.

In developing your PowerPoint, take into consideration the health care literacy level of your target audience, as well as the demographic of the caregiver/patient (socioeconomic level, language, culture, and any other relevant characteristic of the caregiver) for which the presentation is tailored.

Include the following in your presentation:

  1. Describe the selected environmental factor. Explain how the environmental factor you selected can potentially affect the health or safety of infants.
  2. Create a health promotion plan that can be presented to caregivers to address the environmental factor and improve the overall health and well-being of infants.
  3. Offer recommendations on accident prevention and safety promotion as they relate to the selected environmental factor and the health or safety of infants.
  4. Offer examples, interventions, and suggestions from evidence-based research. At least three scholarly resources are required. Two of the three resources must be peer-reviewed and no more than 6 years old.
  5. Provide readers with two community resources, a national resource, and a Web-based resource. Include a brief description and contact information for each resource.

You are required to cite a minimum of three peer-reviewed sources to complete this assignment. Sources must be published within the last 5 years, appropriate for the assignment criteria, and relevant to nursing practice.

Refer to the resource, “Creating Effective PowerPoint Presentations,” located in the Student Success Center, for additional guidance on completing this assignment in the appropriate style.

Elderly abuse is not only infliting physical pain on the elderly. There was a 90 year old man who was admitted to the hospital where I work last month. His children exhausted his inheritance including estate, and Medicaid program. Before he was brought to the hospital, his children and other family members visited him daily to check on him. They instilled a video camera in his home. The camera that was instilled became their nightmare. One day the patient needed to get up, he could not reach his walker, his children refused to help him, while trying to reach his walker he fell down and broke his ribs. This patient was brought to the hospital, few days later he died. It was through the video that the government found out what really happened to the patient, now the government is after his children

Hi Mayreth,

Thank you for sharing the experience. Elderly patients get financially exploited by their family members. According to the study performed by (Conrad et al., 2019) cross-sectional data were collected on 948 cases with yes/no substantiation decisions where 357 cases had no abuse in elder mistreatment investigations. Hypotheses were tested using odds ratios, bivariate, and multiple linear regression analyses including a control for victim vulnerability. Of 948 alleged victims, 42 (4.4%) exhibited signs of substance use problems. Among the 323 alleged perpetrators, 87 (26.9%) were reported to have substance use problems. Substance use problems by alleged perpetrators were associated with financial exploitation, physical abuse, and emotional abuse.

Thanks for your detailed assignment. I completely agree with you that aging is inevitable. It is a graceful period characterized by many physical and psychological changes. Their health and body system changes. Hence, you see health issues dementia and amnesia. There is also decrease in function of most organs like the ears and eyes. The elderly is weak and usually dependent. Therefore, during assessment interview, the nurse should talk to the elderly alone and away from whoever brought them to the hospital. The nurse should provide privacy to be able to get the needed piece information from them especially when elder abuse is suspected. In addition, the nurse should be observant in order to get non-verbal cues in form of crying, checking to see if a relative is listening while trying to give an answer, etc. This is because the elderly is very scared of the loved ones and may not want to report them to healthcare providers so that they do not loss the care they get from such people.

The ageing of the global population is the most important medical and social demographic problem worldwide (Rudnicka n.d.). The population of adults in United States who are sixty- five and older increased by thirty percent between 2005-2015An anticipated population of eighty – five and older will reach by 2060 per Federal interagency forum on aging-related statistics (Grand Canyon University, n.d.). An individual body goes through lot of changes during the aging process such as hearing loss, normal loss of short-term memory, weak cardiovascular system, sensitive gastrointestinal system, limited range of motion to head, neck, legs, shoulder due to arthritis, graying, thinning of hair, wrinkled skin, thinning skin with loss of elasticity, skin turgor and eye may become sensitive to glare. These changes and conditions increase an older adult’s vulnerability to and injuries from abuse or neglect. Older adults often need assistance with activity of daily livings such as bathing, feeding, dressing and bathroom assistance due limited range of motion caused by arthritis. Older adults move slowly and take a long time for the caregiver to assist them. The care needs lot of resources to provide the needs of the elderly person and if there are lack of resources, it can lead to frustration to the caregiver and lead to elderly abuse.

The nurse should be mindful about the physiological changes that takes place due to ageing.

Bones become very brittle with aging and prone to fracture easily. At times, patient complaints of pain and  unaware of the injury due to poor memory. In such scenarios, the nurse should be careful while performing the physical assessment to prevent further harm to the injured body part. Polypharmacy is another important consideration that the nurse should be mindful about assessing the patient. Elderly patient with multiple chronic medical conditions, takes several medications so the nurse should be aware of drug interaction and their effects. It is very important to understand these changes to be able to take care of the patient for their health safety and promotion of health.
