Hi, kristenlacey, and welcome to allnurses!
Care plans are primarily based upon the symptoms that the patient has. Nursing interventions are aimed at treatment of the patient's symptoms and expected outcomes are what you anticipate will happen as a result of those interventions. Therefore, any outcomes must be a direct result of your nursing interventions. To help you I would need to know what nursing interventions you have written for this patient for her symptoms of Deficient Fluid Volume
