I need some help, my care plan book doesn't have any Maternity in it at all, how do I find nursing diagnosis without book? I need 6 for mom and 4 for baby, can anyone help me?
it is inappropriate to diagnose based only upon a patient's condition without having performed an assessment first. diagnoses are based upon the assessment information you obtained. not everything you observe in the mother is normal. a 6-pound (or more) baby coming through a vaginal canal leaves trauma behind. that trauma is the basis for potential nursing problems (diagnoses). if you post your assessment information i will help you determine your nursing diagnoses.
