Care plan help

  1. I know there are a lot of resources available online for care plan help. I can't seem to find what I'm looking for though. If you would be so kind as to help me word this diagnosis I'd be grateful.

    Our instructor wants an individual care plan for foleys, iv's, peg tubes, and whatever else is appropriate for our particular patient. I'm starting with the one for the IV. Here is what I have so far:

    Risk for infection related to impaired skin integrity at IV insertion site.

    Does this sound correct?

    Wouldn't the diagnosis for the catheter be the same?

    Thanks in advance for the help

    Risk for infection R/T invasive procedure.
    Risk of impaired skin integrity R/T placement of IV.

    Dont know if your school required AEB with risk of nursing DX

    IV placement or foley placement.
