I'm trying to come up with Nursing Diagnoses for my pancreatitis patient. So far I have Acute pain r/t irritation of inflamed pancreas, Imbalanced Nutrition r/t NPO status, Impaired gas exchange related infiltrates/atelectasis of lower lung fields. In the progress notes the Dr. mentions the patient also had positive gram neg blood blood culture unknown organism and that the patient is on Flaggyl, Gentamycin and Zosyn but that's all I could find in the chart. I am brain dead right now and can't think of a nursing diagnosis to address the sepsis any suggestions would be appreciated. Also, do I assume the sepsis is related to the pancreatitis? If not, how do I figure out what has caused it? I've read everything in the chart and I still can't figure out what's caused it other than it's a gram neg organism. I know I should be using my critical thinking but I'm just not capable at the moment, please help!!
