Sharon Anderson is a 42 year old female with a history of Type-1 diabetes diagnosed in childhood. Sharon is independent and lives with her husband David along with her two children Samantha and Riley in a government funded housing apartment. She works part-time, two, six hour shifts per week at a local supermarket. Sharon began haemodialysis eight years ago following the onset of renal failure. She had a right arm Arterio-Venous fistula (AV fistula) created for this purpose. Sharon’s recent employment meant she is no longer able to meet the haemodialysis regime requirements of attending her local hospital three days per week for treatment and was not considered a good candidate for home haemodialysis. A tenckhoff catheter was inserted twelve weeks ago and Sharon commenced on APD (automated peritoneal dialysis), also known as CCPD and IPD, at home. You are the community nurse who has been assigned to visit Sharon following her recent hospital admission for peritonitis. Sharon was discharged yesterday from hospital. In addition to an assessment of the home you are to provide any necessary education required and administer intra-peritoneal antibiotics. During her recent admission Sharon alerted her medical team to worsening eye-sight. Additionally, she has told her treating team that she often finds it difficult to manage everything with her dialysis as her husband does not want to be involved in her dialysis and is not interested in learning.

You note from her recent hospital admission the following assessment data: Weight: 58 kilograms Height: 170cm T: 37.1 P: 90bpm R: 26 bpm Sp02: 98% R/A BP: 155/88mmHg- Lying and 135/82mmHg- Standing Lung fields are clear to auscultation.
