I am assigned do make a Care Plan for a long term facility patient who has a history of Diabetes Mellitus type 2. He is self-sufficient... does all ADL's on his own, walk with a walker d/t his vision is not so great. He has myopia and has recently been diagnosed with nuclear sclerosis cataract. This is the nursing diagnosis I have come up with:
Disturbedsensory perception related to impaired visual reception as evidencedby decreased vision with the need to use corrective lenses to see.
I am just very unsure if this "works" or not. The patient does have glasses, but he claims that he does not wear them all the time. I think the route I am wanting to go has to do with safety. I have my patient goal as being
Maintainsafe optimal functioning within limits of visual impairment
Any suggestions/comments would be very appreciated!
