I'm trying to come up with a nursing diagnosis for a 99 yr. old dying woman.
Weight 70 lbs.
BP 80/60 -74/40
pulse 88/64 irreg.
refusing to eat for 2 days
IV- D5W 50mL/hr
Morphine 2mg q 2hrs.
We do still turn her so I was thinking "Risk for Impaired skin integrity"?
I need help with this one. Anyone else have a situation like this, and what did you use?
Thank You for any help
It was a very moving experience for me last week. A woman from hospice came in a played acoustic guitar and sang to this woman while her family was there. I was brought to tears.
