The patient noted that he started feeling lower back pain after falling in the bathroom six weeks ago, but the pain became severe four days ago.

The patient has a fever, fatigue, diarrhea, weight loss, and reduced appetite

HEENT: Healthy head, eyes, ears, nose, and throat.

Gastrointestinal: Cannot defecate though has the urge to defecate.

Hematologic: Reports bleeding ulcers.

Objective Data

Physical Exam: The patient was seen limping during the physical examination, and his lower back was swollen and tender. His eyes were also swollen.

Vitals: BP 127/82, Temp 39.2 degrees centigrade, Wt 74, Ht 189cm, RR 20, Hr 76.


  1. Inflammatory Bowel Disease- This disease is the primary diagnosis for this case. IBD is an infection that causes pain in the lower abdomen (Colombel et al., 2017). This disease is the primary diagnosis because the patient reports most of its symptoms
  2. Colon Cancer-Colon cancer is the cancer that affects the colon. It has been included in diagnosis because it causes abdominal pain.
  3. Bowel Obstruction-This condition has been included in the diagnosis because it also causes abdominal pain by blocking digestion wastes in the intestines.


Treatment Plan

 Blood test, stool test, and X-ray were ordered and the patient found to have IBD. The disease can be treated using three types of drugs, including painkillers, anti-inflammatory medications, and antibiotics. The patient should be recommended Dipentum 1.0 g/day twice a day for ten days (Sakur et al., 2019). Dipentum is a medication used to treat inflammation. To relieve his pain, the nurse should recommend diclofenac sodium Voltaren 18 mg orally thrice a day for four days (Rosen et al., 2017). The patient should be recommended Cipro 500 mg orally twice a day from 4 weeks to fight infection.

Follow-Up Care

The first follow up care for this patient is a checkup (Brandenbarg et al., 2017). The patient should be told to visit the hospital two weeks after being discharged so that the nurse can check and see how the patient is fairing. The nurse can also implement follow up care by calling the patient often to find out how he is doing.


From this soap note, I have leaned that nurses should conduct proper diagnosis on their patients before recommending any medication. I have also learned that nurses should plan follow-up care programs to ensure that patients respond well to medication.

So far this is the highest marks I got for an assignment done by you guys. I got 42/50 for this assignment. The exact feedback from my lecturer was:
Introduction: Good introduction to assisted dying, especially in relation to laws within Australia. Introduction was a little too long.
Aim or Purpose: Good purpose but improved grammar needed. Good use of PICO.
Method: The method, while explained is very out of order. Try to write a methods section that can be followed in a step by step fashion

You did a good job just some details were missed enough attention. To be honest, you did much better job than the other websites. I would like to have more experience with you then I can give you more detailed feedback.
