Which of the following factors is a priority when evaluating discharge plans for an older adult after a lower left lobectomy for lung cancer?
1. The distance the client lives from the hospital.
2. Support available for assisting the client at home.
3. The client’s ability to do home blood pressure monitoring.
4. The client’s knowledge of the causes of lung cancer.
Because clients are discharged as soon as possible from the hospital, it is essential to evaluate the support for assistance and self-care at home. If the client has support at home, the distance from the hospital may be irrelevant. The client or sup port team will monitor vital signs as needed, but blood pressure monitoring is not specifically indicated. It is more important at this point for the client to understand how to manage his care at home, rather than knowing the causes of lung cancer.
