Case Study 2:
Anna Lenska
Mrs Anna Lenska is a 68 year old retired woman who, for the past 6 months, has been a client of the
Community Health Service for
treatment of an ulcer on her right lower leg. She has a history of
h
ypertension and Type 2 diabetes requiring oral hypoglycaemics.
Anna
is widowed,
lives alone and has no immediate family. Her neighbour usually takes her to do her
shopping. Her leg ulc
er has been dressed twice weekly by
c
ommunity Registered Nurses in accordance
with the wound specialist nurse’s instructions. The leg ulcer is slowly
healing
.
It is 7.30am and you, the
c
ommunity Registered Nurse, arrive at Anna’s home for the wound
assess
ment and dressing change. Upon arrival, Anna complains that she is feeling a “bit faint” and asks
you to check her blood sugar level (BSL). The BSL reading is 3.5 mmol/L. You follow the
recommendations for hypoglycaemia, and Anna begins to feel better and
her BSL increases to
6.2mmol/L.
On talking with Anna, you discover that she has not been eating well because her neighbour has been
away and she has not been able to get out to do the shopping. She has been wearing an old pair of
closed toe shoes as her o
ther more comfortable shoes had become too broken down to
wear
. She also
says she sometimes forgets to take her medications.
