Discuss the possible placement of a 92-year-old patient who has recently been admitted for a third time

NB Please use Nursing for wellness in older adults 8th editions by Carol A. Miller as 1st reference. 1. The charge nurse has an appointment with the unit’s social worker to discuss the possible placement of a 92-year-old patient who has recently been admitted for a third time due to a fall at home. He now has a fractured femur and will need rehabilitation services for at least 6 weeks after which permanent placement may occur. The social worker arrives and shares that she is going to interview the patient and family to see what supports the patient has to assist in deciding upon placement. The charge nurse is concerned about the supports being the only issue being assessed and inquires to the social worker if they should also perform an entire psychosocial assessment as well. a. What information would you include about a psychosocial assessment for the social worker that would give her insight about this tool? b. Why would a psychosocial assessment be a more preferable tool to utilize as opposed to a physical assessment or functional assessment?
