Choosing priorities when care planning

  1. I am wondering if there are any good books, websites, or other recommendations for setting priorities when we are writing up care plans?

    I know the obvious issues come first, but a good indepth read or something would be super helpful for me.....

    Thank you!

    I don't know of any readings, but from what I know... actuals before risks, ABC and safety.

    I used Susan Martin Tucker's Patient Care Standards; Collaborative Planning and Nursing Interventions in my first couple of semesters of nursing school to help me get priorities and potential interventions down. It is out of print now and can be hard to find and expensive. You will want the 7th edition.
