Hi new here need help with a nursing diagnosis

  1. Hi I've never posted here but I need some help. I am a new basic nursing student. I need to come up with a nursing diagnosis for a care plan on someone with a perforated gastric ulcer repaired with surgery. She was unresponsive and didnt complain of pain, so I'm kind of at a loss. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tessa

    How about
    1) Tissue Integrity: Altered
    2) Alteration in tissue perfusion
    3) Infection, risk for
    4) Pain

    Thought those might be helpful. Always think of Maslow's and that physiological problems come first. before knowledge or psycho social needs!. Always try to pick the diagnoses that are at the root cause of the problem.
