Urosepsis Care Plan

  1. 0 Hello! I am a bit stuck with my care plan this week. I have a patient with a diagnosis of Urosepsis, and I was wondering if I could put "Infection" as my priority nursing diagnosis? The reason why I am thinking along these lines is because in the past for a Care Plan for a patient with Appendicitis (ruptured) I put for my priority dx- risk for secondary Infection (sepsis) R/T ruptured appendix...and when my Instructor gave me back my care plan she crossed out risk for secondary infection....and wrote Actual Infection. I don't know why I have such a mental block with care plans...but I am struggling this week...so any advise would be appreciated!!! Thanks!
