The clinical manifestations are:
Patient reported pain and heaviness in leg; Patient reported unable to bear weight on leg for the past three days;
open wound above the medial malleolus on the left lower leg with moderate amount of thick yellow drainage; redness from the knee to ankle on the left leg swelling of the left calf; elevated WBC neutrophils and bands; elevated temperature(102.02 deg. F); wound culture positive for Staphylococcus aureus (bacteria);
My recommendations would be for Ms. G to elevate the left leg on two pillows while in bed to decrease the swelling continue taking antibiotics as prescribed to decrease inflammation. Ibuprofen (NSAID) as this will help to reduce the fever pain swelling and inflammation. NSAIDs work in the body by inhibiting prostaglandins a chemical that can cause inflammation in the body (Wiley 2015). While in the hospital I would continue to monitor the blood sugar and cover with sliding scale as ordered and maintain a diabetic diet.
