I plan on improving my care plan next time by monitoring my patients’ recovery process keenly and offering effective ways to have my patient be able to decrease edema and promotes venous return. HEALTH HISTORY, ASSESSMENT AND NURSING DIAGNOSIS 12 Medical Diagnosis 1. The patient diagnosed with an Unspecified Displaced Fracture of Surgical Neck of Right Humerus the pieces of bone at the fracture site are separated and shifted out of position. This type of fracture typically requires surgery. Proximal humerus fractures are diagnosed by a thorough physical examination and diagnostic imaging (Stanley, n.d.). 2. Humerus fractures are caused by direct harm to the arm shoulder. About 20% of humerus fractures are displaced and mostly occur in baseball games. Such type of fracture requires a more intrusive treatment like surgery 3. A subsequent encounter is experienced when an active treatment of the patient's injury has been offered, and the patient is now receiving routine care for the injury in the healing process (Deter, 2006). An example is medical ex-rays to monitor the healing process of the fracture 4. Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airway demonstrated by various recurring symptoms and bronchospasm. Common symptoms of asthma include; coughing, wheezing, short breaths, and chest tightness. 5. A major depressive disorder is a mental disorder demonstrated by two weeks or more of low mood. It is accompanied by loss of interest in several things, low self-esteem, pain with no clear cause and low energy. Patients with depression often hear or see things that are unseen by other people. They affect patients negatively as some end up committing suicide (Deter, 2006).

This mean the patient may not be getting enough blood flow to their kidneys, and could have conditions such as congestive heart failure, dehydration, or gastrointestinal bleeding. This mean that there is a nutritional deficiencies such as iron, folate or B12 deficiency. Elevated ALK Phosphate is most commonly caused by liver disease or bone disorders. This could signify trauma in the patient.
