Overview of the Case StudyVivian, a 96 year old lady who is malnourished and needs some sort of help and support.She is just 39 Kg's in weight which is comparatively quite less according to her age. She is froma non English background, so she is unable to speak English. She has a Vietnamese decent.Also,she is presently on a fluid and food chart so that she can be able to gain some weight.The reportis about discussing the condition of Vivian and attending her daily living activities, I haveobserved in the medical ward. Also, making an analysis of the pressure care areas of Vivianusing the Gibbs model.Along with this, it focuses on understanding the means ofcommunication for interacting with someone from different background and culture.Differentaspects of it under the Gibbs model has been discussed as under :Gibbs Reflection modelGibbs reflective cycle is considered one of the effective models that can be used andimplemented in nursing. It is being widely used as it helps in providing a precise set ofinformation and reflection which involves the analysis, description and the evaluation. All theaspects of the model are described as under :DescriptionThe description means what has happened and why. What were the reasons behind whathas happened (Ekebergh, 2011). So, in case of Vivian, she is 96 years old but she has only 39 kgweight which means she must be underweight. There can be various reasons behind that.When Iwas examining her, I realised that she is presently on a food and fluid chart in order to gain someweight. So, I think there is a need to recheck the chart as she has not gained much weight since ahuge time. So, I think there is a need to make some sort of changes in the diet plan.As shespeaks Vietnamese, so it was difficult to coordinate with her but I analysed her situation fromexamining her body only.Then, I make use of the sign language to interact with her and madeher understand the changes in the meal plan. It also helped in creating a trusting relationship withher that whenever I used to taught her something, she understands it easily.FeelingsIt involves how the person felt during the whole experience (Tashiro and Matsutani,2013). I was feeling very bad for her situation because she was looking very weak and it can beimagined from her body weight only. Her body weight according to her age was not efficient.1
