Ok, I had a patient on my very first Peds clinical who was a 19 y/o male that was admitted with neutropenia, fever, and sore throat following a transfusion of RBC & platelets the day before. This has been a FUN care plan so far, but what I have come up with is: risk for infection r/t chronic disease
, risk for deficient fluid volume
(pt is receiving chemo, transfusion, & IV fluid), acute pain r/t disease process
, and social isolation r/t altered state of health
. Do these sound ok? I have been able to come up with interventions, rationale, and response to the first three diagnosis, but am drawing a blank on the social isolation! We have to come up with a general goal
, then a specific goal
. I don't know if I am just having an off day or what, but I cannot come up with anything! Please help! Thanks so much in advance!!
