I have to do a care plan/concept map worth almost half of my grade for mental health clinical. I had a patient with severe Alzheimer's dementia, anxiety and depression. The anxiety and depression were pretty well maintained with medications during the day. She's in a wheelchair, needs help eating, and is incontinent.
I need to prioritize 3 diagnoses r/t her mental health (Alzheimer's, anxiety, depression). I came up with:
Impaired Physical Mobility
Feeding, Bathing, Dressing Self-Care Deficit
I didn't know if Chronic Confusion ranked above any of those. Oh, she's also 5'0 and 84 lb which equals between a 16 and 17 on BMI so Altered Nutrition: Less Than Body Requirements is an option too.
