But this assignment is based on Maslows. I get what you are trying to say, but prioritizing problems is taught actual above risks.
Again, risks can be ACTUAL problems... http://www.nanda.org
has the criteria; also the NANDA-I book has more information on formulating a nursing diagnosis; again, GrnTea was pretty in. The mark and you can find what she stated from NANDA itself.
It is ABCs, then Maslows, etc.....I really do not understand where your info is coming from. I understand the use of NANDA for NDs, but prioritizing has other factors involved. Its nice you are defending your friend, but its constant and truely directed at her, thanks.
I'm not sure if GrnTea would consider me a friend; it's a nice thought though, but the fact of the matter is, when eliciting a response that may be off the mark; enlightenment is the best response, and an appreciation for the enlightenment is in place, especially from for more experienced colleagues in the field
You continue to state a "risk for" diagnoses prioritized below; it is not, especially if there is an assessment in play; no, we don't have an assessment; however; whether we have one or not doesn't eliminate the fact that your line of thinking the a "risk" diagnoses cannot be first priority; that is my point, and from being a member for a good amount of time, that is where GrnTea is driving, I may be off the mark, regardless of our "friend status", but just using my nursing knowledge that I have been cultivating for a while in the business of nursing.
Also, looking at the Maslow's model; Safety is above the physiological; there is a reason why the safety is above the physiological; although the theory itself was taught about fulfilling those needs from the bottom up; in theory in nurse of the nursing model; Safety is a biggie; safety first from Maslow's; that's why as you stated ABC's the Maslow's...Think about it, of the ABC's are intact, what ELSE should we be assessing for? That's where the "risk for" especially if it will be detrimental to the patient comes into play, especially in terms of safety.
Granted, I could receive a report, let's' say is pretty vague, but those diagnoses come up. I don't go into a pts room, see that their ABCs are intact, and forget to make sure there is O2 at the bedside, side rails up; if the ares is cluttered, it remains clear, that, my friend, is called a safety check-a part of Maslow's.
I then can proceed to my assessment of the diagnoses and go from there to activity intolerance and constipation to see if they are related and whatever diagnoses a patient may have.
