I'm a second semester nursing student and have a patient for this week who presented to the ER with abdominal pain (8 on a 1-10 scale). I need to come up with her top 5 priority nursing diagnosis, or as my CI likes to say "I want to see the top 5 things that'll kill your patient". They were still running tests to figure out what is wrong with her when I was there for data collection this afternoon. She has a hx of pancreatitis (pt thinks this is her problem now), superior mesentaric artery syndrome, and gastrojejunostomy. I've got Acute Pain r/t epigastric pain -- I know my r/t probably won't work, don't think you can double on pain, but I'll work on that -- can anyone help me with a direction to go for the next 4? WBC is high, Hgb and Hct are low, K is low (she's getting it in her IV), ALT and AST are high, and her UA was within ormal limits. Thanks!!!
