in my case study I have divided ( specified) ex.
1. Client will have improved cerebral tissue perfusion.
|1.Cerebral function improved, neurological deficits resolving/stabilized
for example Pt will.....
a.Demonstrate ability to follow simple commands
b.Demonstrate appropriate orientation to person, place, time, and situation
and now what to do? should I evaluate nursing goals or
should I evaluate outcomes.....??? and how?
Am I correct? help pls...............
Quote from GrnTea
Improved cerebral perfusion sounds more like a medical goal. Great idea, but outside of some specific ICU-type interventions I can't think of much in the way of nursing interventions that will make blood flow better in the brain or guarantee resolution of neurological deficits. Correcting medical pathology is the job of the medical plan of care. We support that, but we don't drive it. Remember, this is nursing we're talking about. Better blood flow to the brain is not a nursing goal, broadly speaking. So let's think about the nursing plan of care you're trying to write.
you have right, but how about this:
nursing priorities :
1. Promote adequate cerebral perfusion and oxygenation.
which are the actions that nurse must do to accomplish this priority???
and if this is a nursing priority which would be the right nursing goal for this??
