Anna is a married, 38 y/o mother of three. She has been discharged from the hospital against medical advice after a 3-day stay with a medical

diagnosis of hypertension, type 2 diabetes and fracture of the left proximal humerus. She had initially gone to the emergency room of the hospital for

treatment of her “broken arm” after a “fall down the basement stairs.”

During her stay in the hospital, Anna appeared depressed and sullen, avoided eye contact, and answered all questions with one or two words. It

was also noted that she did not have any visitors during her stay. A home care follow-up was recommended because Anna seemed to be vague

and insecure about her condition even though she verbalized a complete understanding of her diet and medications.

During the first home visit by the FHC team (family health care) the house appeared cluttered but was relatively clean. Empty beer bottles were

noted. Anna appeared stressed out. Anna told the FHC team, “Let’s get this over with fast before my husband arrives. He does not want strangers

in the house.”

Anna revealed that she has an 8-y/o daughter who is her biggest help. Her other children are a 6-y/o son and a 5-y/o daughter. She never

mentioned her husband. When probed about it, she averted her eyes and looked fearful. Anna said, “He is a wonderful father and husband when

he is not drunk. We just have to act better so he’ll love us enough to stop drinking.”
