Acute pain vs. Risk for maternal injury r/t pitocin

Posted

Hi! Can someone help me with prioritizing these nursing diagnoses:

Acute pain r/t effects of labor and delivery process

Risk for maternal injury r/t response to therapeutic intervention: Pitocin

I am thinking pain would be the priority but my instructor mentioned Pitocin as high risk drug is considere a top diagnosis. Can someone help me clarify this please?
