Case Study: Jamie Client

  1. Turn to page 349  of Chapter 15 in your Pediatric Life Care Planning and Case Management book. Review the information for Jamie Client on pages 349-376. Although the information available on Jamieis very limited, take what you have learned from the above lessons and attempt to create a life care plan for Jamie. (Note: She is currently dependent on a ventilator, but is a good candidate for a phrenic nerve stimulator.)

You may refer to page 61 of your book and reference the “Life Care Plan Checklist”.

  1. Once you have completed your sample life care plan, look at the sample life care plan provided to you and review. Ask yourself the following questions:
    • Did you include all necessary supplies and equipment for the ventilator?
    • Did you include a back-up generator in your life care plan?
    • Did you remember to increase hours for home health when Jamie gets older?
    • Did you include a vocational component in your plan? Why or why not?
    • Did you include a children’s camp? Why or why not?
    • What therapies did you include? Did you consider other family members?
