Long time reader/lurker, first time posting.
So many here are so knowledgeable and have provided so much help, especially the late Daytonite. So firstly, thank you.
My question is, can a nursing diagnosis have more than one risk factor?
My patient is a motorcycle crash trauma, 11 days post op from a craniotomy for epidural hematoma. Also sustained a compound comminuted fracture with degloving of the right tibia and fibula. She also is on a foley catheter.
I want to use the nursing diagnosis of Risk for Infection. But I'm a bit confused. Would it be incorrect to state "Risk for infection of surgical incision wound, open fracture of RLE, and indwelling catheter r/t disruption of normal tissue integrity and indwelling urinary catheter"
It just feels like too many words jammed in there.
