Help with care plan

  1. Hello I am a first semester nursing student and I am so stuck on this care plan I have to do today. I usually can do the care plan but am flip flopping with my Nursing Dx and R/t. I had a patient that just had a colostomy done. She has an ostomy bag. Her labs show that she is also anemic. WBC-11.9, RBC-2.38, Hgb-8.3 Hct-24.6 MCV-104,MCH-34.8. I was going to use Impaired Tissue Integrity. Then I thought it would be better to use Risk for Impaired skin integrity R/t: Irritation from bowl section...but cant think of the AEB, UGH..then I thought I should use something for the for infection due to trauma to tissue Risk factors: Mid-line incision, stoma................HELP!
