I am taking care of a patient with a scald which covers 15% TBSA. I want to make a diagnosis of impaired skin integrity. I would like to know if the related factor should be what caused the burns or the damaged skin. i.e I want to know which of these diagnosis will be right or appropriate.
1. Impaired skin integrity related to trauma to skin.
2. Impaired skin integrity related to scald. or could it be
Impaired skin integrity related to trauma to skin secondary to scalding.
Please will it also be right to make a diagnosis of acute pain related to destruction of skin tissue?s
Please, any suggestion is welcomed. Thank you.
