We present a case of a 79 years old woman of who is treated by the nursing department in Plasencia South Health Center for a venous ulcer on the medial malleolus of the left leg with phlebitis of the inside of leg and thigh. In addition, the patient has non-insulin dependant diabetes mellitus which significantly influences the ulcer, as it hinders the healing process.
The goal of the nursing staff is to develop an individualized care plan tailored to the patient, taking into account the evaluation of the diagnostic phase from a biopsychosocial perspective, following the Marjory Gordon’s eleven functional patterns and the NANDA-NIC-NOC taxonomy.
The methodology used in the clinical case is a descriptive study. There are many studies that compare the types of treatment for venous ulcers and the importance of adherence to diet and exercise along with the complications that diabetes mellitus can cause, taking into account the quality of life of patients.
