1. Ironside, Emily. Acute care physical therapy for a patient following total knee arthroplasty.

Degree: 2017, California State University – Sacramento

A 73-year-old female patient status post right total knee arthroplasty was seen for physical therapy in an acute care setting for a total of four sessions over the course of three days beginning on the same afternoon of surgery. Treatment was provided by a student physical therapist under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist. The patient was evaluated at the initial encounter with goniometry, manual muscle testing, the Numeric Pain Rating Scale, the Wells Score for DVT, the Boston University AM-PAC Basic Mobility Inpatient Short Form, and a plan of care was established. The main goals for the patient were to improve strength and range of motion (ROM), decrease pain and improve functional mobility, including bed mobility, transfers, ambulation and stair climbing. The main interventions used were therapeutic exercise and task specific training. The patient improved strength and ROM, decreased pain, and improved independence in bed mobility, transfers, gait and stair training. The patient was discharged home with a home exercise program and follow up with outpatient physical therapy. Advisors/Committee Members: Escamilla, Rafael F..

2. Reed, Andie. Assessment of Falls on a Medical-Telemetry Unit.

Degree: MSN, 2017, University of San Francisco

The purpose of this quality improvement project aimed at reducing falls on a medical-telemetry unit in a large metropolitan Magnet hospital. It was important for the MSN/CNL students to focus on falls because it is not just a concern for this institution, it is a national dilemma that needs to be addressed. Due to the complexities and intricate details of the IRB process, the MSN/CNL students were unable to collect data or further advance their project into the microsystem. Instead, information was attained from the University of San Francisco database to allow the MSN/CNL students to continue with the steps of the process. The MSN/CNL students first focused on assessing the medical-telemetry unit by collecting data on the occurrences of falls. There were a reported 31 falls in the fiscal year 2016 with an increase to 36 falls in fiscal year 2017. Currently, patients are assessed for fall risk by using the Morse Fall Scale tool. The MSN/CNL students then split up into groups to observe nurses during shift report, during assessment of the patients for fall risk and while documenting the fall risk. After assessment, the Just-In-Time training was adapted and utilized. The Just-In-Time training focused on educating the nurses on the importance and proper way of implementing the Morse Fall Scale to decipher a patient’s fall risk. Success of the Just-In-Time training was seen when the nurse properly performed the Morse Fall Scale on their patients and felt comfortable using the tool. Once the phases of evaluation were completed, the MSN/CNL continued to evaluate to see if the number of falls decreased within the time frame given. Advisors/Committee Members: Debra Martinez, Michael Bueno, Danijela Pavlic.
