Hey everybody... Is my first time on the website and first time im having so much trouble with a care plan but i really dont know where to star and any help i can get i'd really Really appreciate it!!!!

i need to do two nursing care plans... i have a 27 days old male admittedd for impetigo.. he had oral trush but you cant even see it now is almost gone.. the same qith the impetigo... his nares swab came back MRSA positive... His mom is always at his side she takes good care of him... all the body systems are normal... Vitals normal ...his Hmgb and HCt are low but not too much and he is + for a UTI with E. Fecalis..

i was thinking infection but R/T what the MRSA?? maybe risk for infection (as i said the impetigo and trush are almost invisible, he has had no fever and his WBC are normal)... then i thought impaired oral mucosa but the trush is almost gone and he has really good appetite so IDK... WHAT DO I DO?? any thoughts?:up:

He has a positive UTI.

FYI: "thrush", not trush.

I jsut finished OB & Peds so I know how it is to try & come up with some care plans for those babies.

How about altered family processes r/t hospitalized infant. If she's constantly at the hosp, then whose taking care of home?

Impetigo is contagious so thing of some interventions that teach the mom about prevention.
