    I had a pt with a DVT in his R leg, but for one of my (many) diagnoses, I used "risk for neurovascular dysfunction: peripheral in L leg RT potential complication from R leg DVT & immobility".

    I don't think you can do that... start with a risk for and include potential complication. Those are 2 seperate nursing dxs.

    Potential complications (PC) are medically driven that the nurse is responsible for. So... PC: DVT

    Nursing diagnosis include, Actuals, Risks for, Readiness for and Potential complications.

    At least that is what we were taught.

    I think if you used r/t immobility it would be ok

    Yep, it was perfectly OK. I had the instructor from he** and she said it was a good diagnosis. And believe me, not one single word out of place got past her.

    Hey as long as your instructor was OK with it. 'Cause in the end...that is all that matters!

    wrong! in the end you want to learn how to do this correctly and rationally because you will be writing care plans that will becoming part of patient's permanent records. won't you look foolish if you ever end up having to explain to a jury why you chose one nursing diagnosis over another and the nursing care that went with it--and can't do it intelligently because all you did was write care plans that appeased your instructors and got you a passing grade?

    Daytonite:

    I will say that I think the OP nursing dx is wrong. However if their instructor states it's ok, even though I think it is still wrong, far be it from me to say differently.

    I still think Risk for Injury and PC: DVT are appropriate.

    I would use "Risk for altered coagulation related to ___________." For a risk for, you do not need to use an as evidence by statement, right?

    Ultimately DVT is an altered coagulation and is directly related to perfusion.
