Help with Nursing Care Plan - Psychosocial Diagnosis

  1. What would be a good psychosocial diagnosis for someone who is in a persistent vegetative state? I am not allowed to use "Risk for isolation". Her family visits her once per week.

    What have you seen in the NANDA-I 2012-2014 that might work? Obviously you are going to be looking at the family, as the patient isn't really there for purposes of psychosocial interaction, role, etc.

    Look at your care pan book...what do you think would be a psychosocial diagnosis? We are happy to help with homework but we will not do it for you. What book do you have for your NANDA I diagnosis reference?

    If you had a family member in a persistent vegetative state what would be your thoughts and concerns about your family coping, the patients dignity and comfort. Is the family dealing well...are they grieving properly.

    What is your assessment and what do you think?
