What are Nursing Implications?

  1. 0 Hey all,
    Can anyone help me to better figure out what Nursing Implications are and how to go about forming them or finding them?
    I understand how they apply to meds, but what about for everything else?
    Thanks!

    They're nursing responsibilities and what you as the RN should be assessing for. IE - if someone had a cardiac cath, a nursing implication of that should be to make sure they are not allergic to the contrast dye, to assess their vitals when they come back from the procedure, to check the puncture site often, teaching r/t pre and post procedure care (keeping the affected leg straight, drinking lots of water if they aren't a renal pt), checking pedal pulses, etc. It's the RN's job to do this.

    Nursing implications are the nursing-related consequences of something (a disease, a medication, a procedure). ie. not the medical side effects, but the things which may occur which are up to the nurse to resolve. To work out what they are, you need to understand about the disease, medication or procedure.

    eg. a nursing implication of administering blood pressure medication is that you may make the patient hypotensive and cause dizziness etc. As a result, you would want to be on the look out for safety concerns like the patient falling over. That is a basic one, but you get the idea.

    Mine are in the textbook. If you read the sections thoroughly, they tell you what needs to be done. You can also look at the suggested care plans.

    look up the drug in your drug book, and look at nursing considerations for that drug.
