I'm working on my care plan right now and one of the medical diagnosis was Alzheimer's dementia. After looking through my Nursing Diagnosis Handbook at the NANDA I came up with the nursing diagnosis: Chronic Confusion related to Alzheimer's disease.
Now my question is I thought that Alzheimer's disease was a medical diagnosis, so we wouldn't be able to use this as a "related to" but it's listed in the NANDA. Can anyone clear up my confusion? Thanks!
