I have a 63yr male who is going into gallbladder surgery today. My instructor wants a care plan done for tomorrow on postop. I am not sure how to proceed because he hasn't had the surgery yet. These are the diagnosis I have come up with:
Impaired skin integrity
Risk for infection
Do I write these as risk for
since the surgery has not been done yet. Are there better diagnosis that I should be thinking of? The other problem I have is not knowing which of the 2 gallbladder surgeries he will have. It was not specified before I left.
Any help would be appreciated!!!!!!!
