NURS 21323 Mental Health Nursing Individual Case Study Maxine Miller Maxine Miller, a 35 year old female, was admitted to a psychiatric facility in soiled clothes with a diagnosis of anxiety and panic attacks. She appeared frightened, her hands moved constantly and directions had to be repeated several times for her to comprehend. Maxine cooperated with the admission process as long as she was permitted to pace. To alleviate Maxine’s anxiety, the nurse administered 3 mg of lorazepam intramuscularly. Her heart was 92 beats per minute (bpm), her respirations were 30, and her oral temperature was 37C. History: For the last 6 months, Maxine has been experiencing panic attacks and severe anxiety for which she had not sought treatment. Maxine’s anxiety and panic has been steadily increasing. For the past 4 weeks she has not been able to leave her home or attend work. Maxine has no past psychiatric illness or other medical problems. Thomas, Maxine’s husband, convinced her to go to the emergency department when he returned from work and found her sitting on the floor in the corner of their bedroom covered in urine. Maxine had been too frightened to leave the corner all day. Thomas and Maxine have been happily married for the past 3 years. Maxine is a successful interior decorator; however, has been under considerable stress since her major client decided to discontinue his contract one month ago. After further assessment and consultation with Maxine, she has agreed to be voluntarily hospitalized. The client’s diagnostic findings are as follows: Urine Drug Screen: Negative for illicit drugs Hematology:   RBC 4.2, Hgb 120 g/L, Hct 38%, WBC 5000 Following 3 days of hospitalization with a 2-mg tablet of lorazepam twice a day, Maxine has become more cooperative with treatment, has attended group therapy and socializes with other clients. The nurse assigned to Maxine wants to help her learn more about anxiety and stress management. She sets up a time to talk with the client about these topics, as well as her pending discharge. The client will be discharged in 2 days. She is, however, becoming anxious about the discharge and is demanding to know why she cannot stay longer. The nurse explains that based on the physician’s assessment orders have been received for discharge.
