Case Study: Juan Duran
Meet Juan Duran.
Juan Duran is a Mexican American.
He is at Diabetes Clinic at the VA.
He is exceedingly polite and respectful of health care personnel (and does not like to interrupt or ask too many questions).
He has been in the United States more than 50 years; he is a Navy veteran.
Juan is found wandering the hallway.
Juan is wandering around the hallway and is found by Mr. Carlson, the clinical director.
Mr. Duran tells him that he has been instructed to start insulin for his diabetes but doesn’t know how. He doesn’t recall receiving any appointment or instructions.
Mr. Carlson finds the Diabetes Nurse Educator, Jenny O’Connell, and asks her to fit Mr. Duran in for an unscheduled appointment.
Nurse Jenny interviews Mr. Duran.
Nurse Jenny finds out more about Mr. Duran. He:
Lives in Chula Vista, CA in a comfortable apartment with his wife.
Speaks fluent English, but wife’s English is limited.
Speaks Spanish at home.
Limited vision, wife must administer insulin.
Had one (single) daughter, who was found murdered in the apartment parking lot less than two weeks ago, leaving Mr. and Mrs. Duran to care for her child.
Seems befuddled by the insulin and syringes and is stoic when he talks about the loss of his daughter.
