Re: Ms. Margaret Helen Martin, aged 82
I am writing this letter regarding Ms Martin, who was undergone a coronary angioplassty, and scheduled to be discharged tomorrow. She requires ongoing-assessment and care from your facility.
Yesterday, Ms Martin was admitted with the complaint of angina, and underwent the surgery. Pos-operative recovery was normal. Despitebof bruising, no complications noted at the incision site. Light diet and fluids has been tolerated. However, anxiety and lac of coping were verbalised.
Ms Martin has had coeliac disease, angioplasty in 2008 and on aspirin and clopidogrel for coronary heart disease. She is also taking metoprolol and ramipril for hypertension; atorvastatin for hypercholesterolemia.Sedentary activities were recommended for the obesity. Hearing aid also used for the difficulty.
Currently, low-calorie, high-protein, low-cholesterol, gluten-free diet as well as small and frequent meals including plenty of fluids were recommeded. Daily light-exercise and refrain from heavy lifting for twelve weeks has been instructed. Wound site inspection and medication regimen has to be followed. In addition, social isolation would be suspected due to infrequent family contacts.
Based on the aforementioned circumstances, regular family visits of Ms Martin for the wound care , diet medication compliance would be extremely beneficial. Incase you require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
