Hi all. I am a nursing student. I was working on my care plan that I turned in for class. It will count as one of the final grades in the class. My nursing instructor told me that my dx of Impaired thought processes related to Alzheimer's diagnosis
was fine. So I wrote my care plan and all was well and I turned it in to the head professor for a final grade. WELL... come to find out while reading my school book that it says sometimes nursing dxs include medical etiologies and my school book said this is INCORRECT. It said you do not put "acute pain related to myocardial infarction." You would put something like "acute pain related to upper left incision pain." YIKES! I have turned in the care plan already for a final grade to the head instructor. The clinical teaher (who is a MS-RN) said the Impaired thought processes related to Alzheimer's diagnosis was fine. Which is right???? Should I go see the head teacher or just leave it alone??
Thanks for the input... Epona
