At the same time, discussion has also been included regarding patient problem andhow nursing intervention can be used to resolve the appendicitis issues.Along with this, researcher has also discussed complexities, contraindications andinconsistencies that focuses on patient care; hence on that basis possible alternatives for healthproblem has been identified. Discussion has also been stated about perception of illnessregarding of the patient suffering from appendicitis. Future risks for the patient have also beenidentified in the study because the risk related appendicitis could increase because of the agefactor (Li and Jones, 2013). Nurses must also be aware that patient’s needs proper care and theirprivacy aspects should be protected as well. This means that nursing assistants should not discusstheir care or other personal information with any other person expect the staff members that hasan interest in the care of that patient.MAIN BODYAssessment and planning of nursing care needs:Relevant information about the patient (including physiological, psychological andsociological factors)The present case has been discussing about a 6 year old boy who is currently hospitalizedbecause of abdominal pain and he is also identified as appendicitis after carrying out differenttests. It is also identified that the boy also has the history of bloated abdomen and his family andsocial history is related with this (Kangasniemi and et. al., 2013). Thus, in this respect lookingtowards the case scenario, health care practitioners need to emphasize on maintainingconfidentiality and secrecy at the time of addressing patient’s problems. Further, it is alsoidentified that the patient is having right lower abdomen pain, nausea and lethargy and his past
history is also related to these aspects. Therefore, as per the diagnosis, the main problem that isanalysed is appendicitis; hence nursing practice should be carried out accordingly.Pain in the abdomen is one of the most common symptoms of an acute abdominalpathologic process and this symptom also brings the patient to his physician. Thus, it can be saidthat the symptom deserves the utmost care in evaluation. Therefore, as per the sociologicalfactor, it has been analysed that the family condition of the patient is not suitable as a lot ofeconomic problem exist in the family (Ciccu-Moore and et. al. , 2014). This is the major reasonthat the boy is unable to get prominent access as per his health problem. From previous manyyears, financial condition of his parents is not stable; hence various issues are occurring in thesame area.Moving on to sociological dimensions, it can be articulated that the family needs toaddress their child’s issues in confidential manner because they do not want to bring any otherissue about his medical condition.

Thus, it is clearthat the boy needs to get proper treatment as this problem could amend various risks anduncertainties in future.
