ABSTRACT: The unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual sick or well in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (or to peaceful death) that he would perform unaided if he had the necessary strength, knowledge or will, and to do so in such a way as to help him regain independence as quickly as possible” (Virginia Henderson, 1966).

The rationale behind a care study is to assist a patient to regain health (or peaceful death) and present a report of that assistance giving account of problems that were identified and how solutions were worked out from a nursing process perspective. Present in this care study is a report of nursing care rendered to Mr. I .S. who was diagnosed of peptic ulcer disease. He was admitted to the male’s ward of Happy Hospital Berekum and stayed on the ward for five days.

He was managed on Proton Pump Inhibitor (omeprazole), Antacids (Nugel O), antibiotics(Tab Clarithromycin)and intravenous fluids. Nursing care spanned about five days from the time of admission to the ward till discharge on 3rd May. His condition at the time of discharge was satisfactory. Interaction with Mr. I.S. and his family continued after discharge with home visit and regular phone communication till nurse-patient relationship was terminated finally on 11th May 2023.

This care study report has been organized into six chapters in line with the six phases of the nursing process.

Chapter one deals with assessment of Mr .I.S. and his family. Chapter two deals with analysis of data. Chapter three deals with the nursing care plan which solves the patient’s health problems. Chapter four involves implementation of patient and family care, summary of actual nursing care and subsequent home visit for the continuity of care. Chapter five covers the evaluation of care rendered to patient and family, amendment of care plan for partially met or unmet goals, termination of care and  summary and conclusion of the care study.
