Community Nursing Care Plan 2 Community Nursing Care Plan for 94 Year Old Lady Mrs. Black Step 1: Assessing health Leg ulcers are the most serious type of chronic incompetence. The prevalence of healed and active leg ulcers is approximately 1% of the adult population in Western countries, and an estimated 1% of total health costs in the Western world result from the therapy costs of chronic leg ulcers. For Mrs. Black, there is a dire need to define the ideal benefit for her with a leg ulcer as the complete healing of the ulcer in the shortest possible time at a low frequency of dressing changes, associated with an adequate quality of life and no recurrence. Extremely rare ulcers of numerous etiologies exist only as case reports scattered. But in the case of Mrs. Black, we found uncommon leg ulcer where mostly in old-aged women Vasculitic, bacterial, viral, metabolic, and neo-plastic ulcers have been described in single case reports or small case series. Mrs. Black’s ulcer is, in actual fact, refractory to initial treatment necessitate referral for further evaluation.

Chronic leg ulceration is a common condition in old-aged women with limited epidemiologic data. Generally, the overwhelming majority of leg ulcers are of venous origin, cited in the literature from anywhere between 45% and 90% of all leg ulcers.

According to the details, a long history of Mrs. Black’s ulceration is a pre- and post-operative risk factor for recurrent ulceration. Total elimination of incompetent superficial and perforator veins may lowers the risk of ulcer recurrence, whereas residual axial reflux increases the risk. Postoperative CDU is effective in identifying Mrs. Black as having risk of ulcer recurrence. Interpretation of details of Mrs. Black may be complicated by the shift toward arterial and mixed ulcers, likely because of the aging issue and improved detection of arterial disease. The high prevalence of risk factors for atherosclerotic occlusion also contributes to the increasing incidence of ulceration. As far as Mrs. Black is concerned, proper identification of the etiology of leg ulcers is imperative for appropriate management, because incorrect treatment may cause significant harm. The total recovery of Mrs. Black is a great challenge for all of us as ulceration disorders
