MC Discussion:Nsg6435 Week 6 Discussion Which essential questions will you ask this pediatric patient or his/her caregiver during this well-child check? Why are these questions important? What lab tests or diagnostic studies will you order and why?From his previous visit I would ask how Benjamin is doing with his temper tantrums, and how Mom is addressing them. I would ask Mom if he were doing well without his bottle, as using a bottle after 2 years pus him at risk for dental caries. Asking Mom if she is teaching him to brush his teeth in the morning and before bedtime should be done now also (Policy on Early Childhood Caries (Ecc): Unique Challenges and Treatment Options. Council on Clinical Affairs. Adopted 2000., 2016). Nutrition is important at this age, so I would ask Mom what type of foods he is eating now as he was noted to be a picky eater. I would ask Mom how he is doing with his potty-training. In addition, I would ask her how he is doing socially in preschool. It is also important to ask about family dynamics and if there have been any family stressors at home. Assessing safety will include asking Mom if she has the proper car seat and placing it forward-facing in the middle of the back seat (“Child Passenger Safety,” 2011). Talking to Mom about childproofing and storage of dangerous household chemicals is essential, as this is the most likely cause of child morbidity and mortality at this age. I would assess appropriate developmental milestones for Benjamin’s age at this time using the Bright Futures milestones guidelines (Hagan et al., 2017).The only testing indicated today would be a fingerstick hemoglobin/hematocrit.What diagnoses would you give the patient in this case? Include the findings that support the diagnoses.
