please tell me if this is a real patient or a non-existent patient that you are doing a case study on. if this is a real patient, you need to list the abnormal data you gathered in your assessment. that abnormal data is extremely important in determining the nursing diagnoses that you will eventually use in this patient's care plan. provide me with that information and i will show you how to determine the nursing diagnoses.
