Concept Map Nursing Week 6 Discussion

Jennifer Lopez is a 25-year-old female patient G1P0 who is currently 39 3/7 weeks gestation. She is admitted to the hospital to be induced for being post-date. She is positive for Group Beta streptococcus and receiving IV antibiotics per protocol. She is 65 inches (162.5 cm). Her pre-pregnancy weight was 115 pounds (52.3 kg). She gained 18 pounds (6.8 kg) during this pregnancy. She just had spontaneous rupture of membranes with a moderate amount of thick meconium fluid at 9 pm. The nurse performed a vaginal check, and her cervix is dilated to 4 cm, 8 percent effaced and -1 station. Pitocin is infusing at 8 mU/minute intravenously.

Personal/Social History:

Jennifer lives with a roommate and is no longer involved with the father of her baby. Her family support is limited to her older brother, Sal. She smokes one pack of cigarettes a day and has not had a job for over a year and states money is tight. She admits to not eating very healthy during the pregnancy because it is easier to grab hamburger and coke than cook. She missed a few of her prenatal visits due to transportation issues and did not attend any prenatal classes. Her sister is present as her support person during labor and delivery.
