so i think im going with risk for fluid volume defecit r/t active fluid loss aeb 5 loose stools
and the second im thinking i may go with risk for electrolyte imbalance.
man so flippy floppy with this
Long term i just want the lady to be cured of c.diff, her afib was converted 9/11, history of chf. but no lung complications, no edema, no lethargy, no dyspnea. The c.diff was HA a two or so months before and this is a recurrent episode so what could be recommended long term for a patient like that? Would that mean i should look at a different diagnosis, one that will provide for long term goals? I'll stop thinking so much and focus on 1. risk for dfv etc etc. and 2) risk for electrolyte imbalance r/t fluid loss aeb loose stools. My concern with that though is number 2 is related too and evidenced by the same as #1
. Am i overthinking this too much for my first care plan? goals i can pull from my awesome nursing diagnosis handbook
from evolve and i can pull interventions from there as well. Teaching r/t each diagnosis is a good question. i would educate the patient on the importance of a well hydrated body, especially for a person with a history of afib; gotta keep every variable working properly and a well hydrated body will be a first line.
