Dialogue and Critical reflection
My patient is Mrs. Tardios, female aged 87 years old. She was recently diagnosed with hypernatremia (a condition that results from low sodium levels and some form of body weakness. She has been in the unit for about three days now, prior to this dialogue. When she came, she reported that she has not been diagnosed with any form of medical condition in the past. While conducting my morning shifts, I report to my assigned client Mrs Tardios and realize that she has been lying awake on her bed. While bonding with her, I take this opportunity to conduct an introduction of myself to her and asked whether it was okay for us to have a dialogue and she nodded with a smile to mean it was okay by her.
