I am currently an LPN student learning care plans
(PITA), and I am writing my care plan in regards to Influenza as my first "Fake" plan. I am stuck on how to narrow down my implementations as far as what actions to perform for each subcategory of my NANDA Diagnosis. Listed below is how our instructors want us to list our care plan. Keep in mind, we are to only have 1 "Planning & Evaluation" but list as many Assessment subcategories as possible with 1 implementation and rationale for each action.
WHAT I HAVE NOW:
Imbalanced Body Temperature
r/t Fever AEB Body Temp 101.8
taken on admission.
sub1 - V.S. Temp: 101.8, P: 103, R: 32, B/P: 126/82, O2: 98%, P.S. 2-10
sub2 - Dieting (nutrition)
sub3 - Medication
sub4 - excessive sweating
sub5 - sore throat
sub6 - Cough (productive)
sub7 - headaches
sub8 - lab work
sub9 - inappropriate clothing
sub10 - inactivity (ADL)
sub11 - Lung sounds
sub12 - Environment
sub13 - age&weight
sub14 - impaired judgment
sub15 - alcohol use
sub16 - recent exposure to communicable disease without known immunity
sub17 - abnormal respiratory rate
sub18 - abnormal heart rate/rhythm
sub19 - mental status
ok, now I need to draw implementations for each subcategory. My list starts with sub1:
sub1 - chk v.s. q hr until v.s. have stabilized within a normal range then q 4 hr for duration of day.
sub2 - ?
sub3 - ?
and so on and so on..
thanks for any help.. I am having a rough time in LPN class being a Male Nurse let alone understanding whats going on here.
BTW, I thought being a straight guy in a class of 34 woman would be easy.. pffff.. since day 1, nothing but DDRRRAAAAMMMAAA.. Dear God I couldn't imagine how woman even get along in life vs. a classroom.. GEEsus people. We could start our own reality show.... on lifetime... hahahahah~!!
anyway, I look forward to positive criticism.
