: aren't they lovely?
Ok, so for my Nutrition part, my ND is
"Imbalanced nutrition: less than body requirements r/t decreased desire to eat secondary to altered level of consciousness as manifested by decreased serum albumin, pale conjuctivae and mucous membranes and reports of inadequate food intake (less than RDA)."
In a nutshell, the patient is comatose and needs to be on a feeding tube....
However, all interventions I come across are for patients that are conscious!
HELP!!!! Any ideas or websites would be most appreciated as I need to get this assignment done this weekend.
Why are care plans neccessary anyway? Why can't we just go in and nurse? It seems to me that care palns are more paper work and that means less time away from the bedside (which is where I want to be!)
Thanking you in advance!
