    woah. i certainly did not mean to come across like i knew everything there is to know about diagnoses and outcome statements. i guess i may have worded it wrong but i do not believe that i deserved such a harsh reply.


    Quote from daytonite
    you had a good many of your facts wrong. i was just pointing out and correcting your errors. i know a great deal about the skill of writing nursing care plans and nursing diagnosis and i'll spot an error in someone's thinking about them from a mile away. fyi, my bsn program did not use nanda and we had to compose our own nursing diagnoses. there's a big world out here. nanda does not have a monopoly on care plan writing. and whoever is telling you differently has their facts wrong as well.
    with all due respect, there is absolutely no need for your attitude with me. i did not and do not deserve to be attacked, there is just no reason for it. acting like a bully will get you no where. you are old enough to know better, and i am old enough not to be treated rudely for nothing!

    i would highly recommend you do some research before attacking people simply trying to help someone else. my point of view was as valid as yours.

    I don't know what "attitude" you are going on about. If anything, it sounds like I'm the one getting attacked here! This thread was started by a student who was looking for some feedback on the nursing outcomes she was to develop for some nursing diagnoses. I also commented on the way the nursing diagnostic statements were constructed because it had to do with the outcomes that could be written. You commented on the nursing diagnoses and that NOT using "real" NANDA nursing diagnoses would "set a bad habit" (your words). You posted links to information about the nursing process, NANDA and nursing diagnoses. Do you have something to add about the development of nursing outcomes?

    By the way, I am a member of NANDA-I (the official name) and I work from a copy of NANDA-I Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions & Classification 2007-2008 published by NANDA International along with about 6 other resources for care plans when I am composing answers to these kinds of questions to make sure I'm using correct information because I am aware that a good majority of the nursing programs DO use NANDA nursing diagnoses as the format for their written care plans.

    this is borderline insanity and incredibly sad. this is my final reply to you. i simply voiced an opinion and you turned it into what you seem to have considered an inappropriate response. if you insist on not respecting different points of view this is fine. i'm done. there was absolutely no reason for this!

    Nursing Dx: Impaired skin integrity r/t to decreased blood and nutrients to the skin secondary to type 2 DM AEB 3 cm erythematous lesion on the left heel

    Outcome: The client will demonstrate improved skin integrity with a 1 cm decrease in erythematous lesion on the left heel by next week.

    Nursing Dx: Self-care deficit, bathing/hygiene r/t impaired physical mobility secondary to right hemiparesis

    Outcome: The client will participate in bathing/hygiene activities daily for a month.

    Nursing Dx: Risk for infection r/t impaired skin integrity

    Outcome: The client will exhibit no signs of infection during hospitalization.

    Nursing Dx: Self-esteem Disturbance r/t improved ability to perform usual hygiene practices secondary to burn injury

    Outcome: The client will demonstrate healthy adaptation and coping skills in one month.

    Sorry if it is too much, I am just so confused right now, because I just started Nursing School.
    You need specific and measurable goals. State the exact date and time that the goal should be met by. Also measurable goals such as the client will demonstrate health adaptation and coping skills by verbalizing 3 sources of support for ______. Just make sure everything is clear, specific and measurable. Also make sure the goals are appropriate. i am not sure that you can expect a 3 cm diabetic ulcer to decrease in size by 1/3 of it's diameter. (check on this in a wound book etc...). Also don't use nursing diagnoses as your R/T. So say something like risk for infection r/t site for organism invasion secondary to open ulcer over left heel or _______.
