Introduction

RUNNING HEAD: Nur 322 Case Study Nur 322 Case Study: MB Kevin P Jones Wright State University Miami Valley College of Nursing and Health May 20, 2003 Introduction MB is a 25 year-old Caucasian female. MB gave birth to a five pound 13 ounce, 21 inch baby boy, JB, at 0002 on May 13, 2003. MB has a history of chronic hypertension, kidney disease, and Herpes Simplex Virus Type-2. I took care of MB in postpartum starting at 0800 to 1400 on May 13, 2003. There was only fifteen minutes of contact with the father of the JB. The father, FB, is a 27 year-old African American male. All other medical data is unknown. Analysis Identifying Data of Family Genogram: See Graphic A. MB is currently not married or engaged, but she currently lives with the FB. MB and FB have been together for three years and it is unknown to me how long they have been living together. MB would like to get married once she is sure she is in love with FB. She thinks FB feels the same way. FB works at a brokerage firm and MB works as pharmacy tech. Developmental Stage of the Family MB, FB, and JB (the B's) form a nonmarital heterosexual cohabitating family (Friedman, Bowden, & Jones, 2003). Of Duvall, Feldman, Rodgers, and Carter & McGoldrick's family developmental stages, the B's fall into the beginning of stage two except for Carter & McGoldrick's model (Friedman et al., 2003). ...read more.

Having adequate health-care promotes a functional family because it meets the needs of the family if a person becomes sick. Also, it helps develop a family health history and family records, which is important for identifying risk factors (Friedman et al., 2003). Family's Ability to Cope With Stressors Within and External to the Family MB stated FB and her do have the occasional fight. She said it usually ends up with both of them yelling and then both of the cooling off privately. She said once they have had their time to be alone, then they usually talk calmly for 10 minutes and everything is better. MB stated if the stress is work or other family members, then FB will let her lie in his arms and talk to her which makes her feel safe and secure. She stated if it is FB who is stressed, then he usually likes to be left alone for a bit and then likes to be comforted. MB said that they do not really cope with their stress without each other. They do occasionally go out with their own group of friends without one another, but that does not have to do with relieving stress. The B's have a possibility of developing a dysfunctional coping style because they deal with their stress in limited ways (Friedman et al., 2003). Synthesis Overall, the B's are a functional family in the transition of developing into a new stage. ...read more.
