nausea or vomiting. No prior history of otitis. Her brother was sick earlier this

scenario.

with a history of currently being under treatment for a right corneal abrasion that
occurred on Sunday. She states she was seen by the “eye doctor earlier today” and
now has a bandage over her eye. Apparently her eye is opened underneath the
bandage, and she is unable to close her eyelid. She feels her eyelid is stuck to the
bandage.
OBJECTIVE: She is afebrile with stable vital signs. The patch was removed and
there was a folded piece of Telfa that had slipped down and her upper eyelid was
unable to close over the top of this. The Telfa was removed and a wet patch was
placed. This did provide significant comfort. Her eye patch was reinforced.
ASSESSMENT: 1. Right corneal abrasion under treatment. 2. Eye patch replaced as
described above.
PLAN: She has a follow up visit tomorrow morning with ophthalmology. I told her
she needs to keep that appointment. She is to return here sooner if she is having
increasing problems.
