The assignment is this:
"Mary, a 33yr old female, presents to the clinic w/a complaint of a skin rash."
And that is all
the information that we are provided.
It goes on to ask what subjective/objective data I will collect, and I've gotten that part. But then, the last question is, "What nursing dx and collaborative problem (PC) could be considered for this situation? Write one of each.
Ok... I'm confused as to how I can write a nursing dx and PC based on just that information - a 33 year old female with a skin rash. That rash could be anything with any etiology... or can I write, "Impaired skin integrity r/t an unknown etiology as evidenced by..." As evidenced by what? A "rash"? See what I mean?
Any thoughts? Thanks
