Hello to all and thank you in advance for any advice. I am currently working on two care plans
and am missing just a couple of rationales. Of course I will have to find them in our text and cite my sources, but if I could just get some help in the right direction that would be awesome.
Pt post colon resection. #1 Acute pain. I have two interventions - assess for abdominal guarding during movement/transfer... and assess for facial grimace during movement/transfer. I can't for the life of me find a rationale in my book for this. Any suggestions on which section to look?
#2. Impaired skin integrity - Intervention - Assess colostomy site for patency and signs of infection. I have looked all over ( I think..its a blurr right now) and can't find a rationale. I have looked in the surgical chapter, GI disorders chapter. I know we talked about checking for that and why.. and why to check for wet skin and how it causes breakdown but I can not find it.
Again, thank you again for any advice.
Good night. Will be checking this tomorrow!
