Dale, a 40-year-old construction worker, lost his 4-year-old daughter in a car accident six months ago, in which his sister was driving and he was a passenger. He is at this visit for a follow-up of a shoulder injury sustained last month. You notice that he has lost about eight pounds since his last visit, and he is somewhat disheveled in his appearance. Dale has not been back to work, and has not been able to get into a car since the accident. Before going into the room, your nurse pulled you aside to let you know that the patient was very rude to the front office staff, and was also rude to her while he was being processed for his visit. This is not Dale’s usual behavior.

Due in 30 hours. APA format. Complete case study and table provided please follow instructions can use this book as a resource.
