CAREPLANS HELP PLEASE! (with the R\T and AEB)Register Today!
- by RNinJune2007 Sep 18, '05Hello! I did very well my first unit, taught by a certain teacher. This unit is taught by another and the majority of my class is COMPLETELY lost! When the teacher gives examples, it makes sense but when we're left on our own, it's extrememly difficult to know where to start!
It will be the nursing DX r\t (what it's related to), aeb (then the signs and symptoms)
Does anyone have any pointers to make this easier??
Thanks in advance!!

- Sep 18, '05 by psalm...do they have to be NANDA? Did you have a book you needed to purchase for care plans? Your med-surg book should have some cases that include care plans so check those that would correspond with the medical & nursing diagnoses. What is the pt in the hosp for? The dr's diagnosis of pneumonia would point you to Airway and Breathing problems...
ie Impaired gas exchange r/t aeb
You fill in the blanks with what is going on with this individual pt.
- Sep 18, '05 by stressgalHere is an example:
Knowledge, deficient regarding condition, treatment, and self-care R/T lack of information AEB patientís comments about reason for hospitalization.
Nursing DX ( from the Nanda approved list): Knowledge deficient
RT (why is the client deficient): lack of information
AEB (how do I know the client meets the diagnosis) : patientís comments
Here's another one
Skin/Tissue Integrity, impaired R/T surgical procedure AEB presence
Nursing DX: Skin/tissue integrity impaired
RT(why is the skin/tissue integrity impaired): surgical procedure
AEB (how do I know the skin/tissue is impaired): presence of incision
I would reccommend a good care plan book. There are many available. You do not need to "create" these out of thin air.
Hope that helps.

New term for us oldtimers-- guessing AEB short for "as exhibited by"
- Sep 19, '05 by chuckcDon't know if this will help, but I read my care plans back to myself backward to check it, from nursing interventions back to nurse dx, and each should relate to one another and make sense. Works for me. On the r/t I usually use s/sx and secondary to med dx. I use AEB on my desired pt outcome, it says how I will know it was effective RE: Pt skin integrity will remain intact AEB no skin breakdown during shift. Not a great example, but you get the picture. Hope this helps
- Sep 19, '05 by almostthere07I don't know if this helps but we use the PES format
Problem, Etiology, Sx
Example Problem, related to (cause), mainfested by (signs and symptoms). I agree with reading it back to yourself backwards. It helps
