I'm needing help with my short term goal. This is my first Rn careplan of the year and I'm wanting to make sure that I do it right. My diagnosis goes as follows;
Diarrhea R/T intestinal inflammatory process AMB abdominal pain,cramping, urgency, and the frequent passage of loose liquid stools.
twill maintain fluid balance as evidenced by adequate I&O's, maintainingweight and skin turgor, and ingesting at least 80% of each meal during thisshift 11/02/12.
Pt will have a return to normal bowel patterns as evidenced by passage offormed soft stool at least every other day for 1 week.
I'm worried that my stg isn't specific enough to the problem. Should it be something more like, the pt will verbalize causative agents? She has diverticulitis.
