    Re: Ms Anna Dijana, 42 years old

    Dear Ms Ina,
    I am writing to introduce Ms Dijana, 42-year-old school teacher who is discharged today and to inform you about the medical and nursing care that she needs.

    Ms Dijana was admitted five days ago to The New Victoria Hospital with right knee pain after falling off the stairs and unability to bear weight on her right leg. She was diagnosed with right proximal tibia fracture and lateral tibial plateau fracture known as Compartment syndrome. Ms Dijana underwent external fixation and fasciotomies of the right lower leg.

    In postoperarive, Ms Anna’s fractures were stabilized, the pain was managed with painkillers. However, the wound and the drainage indicated signs of infection.

    Today, Ms Diana’s wound is free of infection and there is neither swelling nor pain and the patient is resting comfortably and her vital signs are normal.

    Ms Dijana is discharge home with full education about the care of the wound site and the possibility of drainage. She is taught about the signs and symptoms of infection and the importance to notify a nurse immediately in the case of any changes occur.

    It would be highly appreciated if you provide Ms Dijana with the adequate care when she requires.
    Kindly contact me for any further queries.

    Yours faithfully.

    Dear Ms Ina,
    RE: Discharge of Ms Anna Dijana a 42-year-old admitted on 15/07/18 at The New Victoria Hospital.
    I write to refer back into your care Ms Dijana, a school teacher with two kids for ongoing care and support. Ms Dijana was admitted to the hospital after a fall off the stairs on the 15th of July, 2018. Her condition has improved and is being discharged into your care today (25/07/18).
    Ms Dijana was X-rayed after complains of right knee pain and inability to bear weight on the right leg and diagnosed as right proximal tibia fracture as well as lateral tibial plateau fracture with compartment syndrome. Ms Dijana was sent to the operating Room and her fractures were stabilized with external-fixator, a fasciotomy on the right lower leg was done to relief her compartment syndrome. She is on analgesics for pain management and carbamazepine for seizures.
    The wound VAC on Ms Dijana’s fasciotomy incisions proved beneficial as her wound and drainage showed no signs of infections on assessment. No swelling, odor, drainage as well as localized pain on assessment. She is free of infection and resting comfortably.
    It would be beneficial if you educate her on signs and symptoms of infections, the wound site and to promptly notify a nurse if any abnormality is observed. Please educate her on how to keep the wound sterile.
    Could you please educate her about the expected drainage and how to rest the extremity (right lower leg).
    Please feel free to contact me if you need further information.
    Yours sincerely,
