Defining characteristics

  1. 0 Please help explain the follwing question for nursing fundamentals:

    Which of the following are defining characteristics for the nursing diagnosis "impaired urinary elimination"? (Choose all that apply)

    1. NOcturia
    2. Frequency
    3. Urine retention
    4. Inadequate urinary output
    5. Receiving intravenous fluids
    6. Sensation of bladder fullness

    Answer 1 and 2
    My answer 3,4, and 6

    I did not see nocturia as an impairment or lessoning of urinary elimination as night time urination increases.

    What does frequency have to do with impaird urinary elimination? It does not specify high or low?
