Our unit is trying to be more specific with care plans
/nsg dx because not everything is being addressed. Are there any specific ones you use?
We currently use: Alteration in comfort r/t pain
Potential for infection/injury
I have added so far: Urinary elimination, altered
Bowel elimination, altered
Sleep pattern disturbance
Nutrition, altered: less than body requirements
Altered immune system response r/t Rh factor iso-
immunization or r/t lack of rubella antibodies
Alteration in tissue perfusion
Family Coping, potential for growth
Impaired gas exchange
Pitocin....................Fluid volume excess, potential
Hyperemesis............Fluid volume deficit, actual
Any help is greatly appreciated! Even though we hate doing them, they must be done and we already have some of them preprinted which helps immensely!
