welcome to an! the largest online nursing community.
we are happy to help with homework but we won't do it for you. apart of the nursing process that is so important is to learn how to critically think. to know how to find information on how to care for your patient and know why you are taking the actions that you need to think.i would like to know what you have looked up so far. show me what yoiu have and wht kiond of paper and i will be happy to show you what youneed and how to get there. what semester are you?
you have to know your pathophysiology of the disease process and treatment. the medical diagnosis is the disease itself. it is what the patient has
not necessarily what the patient needs.
the nursing diagnosis is what are you
going to do
about it, what are you going to look
for, and what do you need to do/look for first.
care plans when you are in school are teaching you what you need to do to actually look for, what you need to do to intervene and improve for the patient to be well and return to their previous level of life or to make them the best you you can be. it is trying to teach you how to think like a nurse. think of them as a recipe to caring for your patient. your plan of how you are going to care for them.
what is bradycardia? is bradycardia ever "normal? what happened to a patient with bradycardia?
every single nursing diagnosis has its own set of symptoms, or defining characteristics. they are listed in the nanda taxonomy and in many of the current nursing care
plan books that are currently on the market that include nursing diagnosis information. you need to have access to these books when you are working on care plans
. there are currently 188 nursing diagnoses that nanda has defined and given related factors and defining characteristics for. what you need to do is get this information to help
you in writing care plans
so you diagnose your patients correctly.
don't focus your efforts on the nursing diagnoses when you should be focusing on the assessment and the patients abnormal data that you collected. these will become their symptoms, or what nanda calls defining characteristics
here are the steps of the nursing process and what you should be doing in each step when you are doing a written care
- assessment (collect data from medical record, do a physical assessment of the patient, assess adls, look up information about your patient's medical diseases/conditions to learn about the signs and symptoms and pathophysiology)
- determination of the patient's problem(s)/nursing diagnosis (make a list of the abnormal assessment data, match your abnormal assessment data to likely nursing diagnoses, decide on the nursing diagnoses to use)
- planning (write measurable goals/outcomes and nursing interventions)
- implementation (initiate the care plan)
- evaluation (determine if goals/outcomes have been met)
what would you need to know about a patient with bradycardia? why does this patient have bradycardia? what type of paper is this?
