I really need help on this care plan. I am super stresed and can not think at all.
15 yr old Female, with RT periorbital cellulitis. Before her hospitalization se had a cold and headache for 4 days, with a fever. She got a PICC line inserted in the L AC for home care antibiotics.
Pt was extremely anxious about the PICC line. Pt was MRSA NEG.
Her labs are as follows:
WBC 8.7 Normal
Hgb 12.7 Normal
RBC 4.12 Normal
SED RATE 76 High
CRP 2.0 High
GLUC 144 High
ALK Phos 175 High
Lymph, absolute 1.3 Low
Monocyte, % 18.9 High
I was going to use, Anxiety r/t PICC line insertion
and Risk for infection r/t PICC line insertion.
I didnt know if i could you risk for infection because she already has an infection.
Please help me out!!
