    you must follow the steps of the nursing process:
    1. assessment (collect data from medical record, do a physical assessment of the patient, assess adl's, look up information about your patient's medical diseases/conditions to learn about the signs and symptoms and pathophysiology)
    2. determination of the patient's problem(s)/nursing diagnosis (make a list of the abnormal assessment data, match your abnormal assessment data to likely nursing diagnoses, decide on the nursing diagnoses to use)
    3. planning (write measurable goals/outcomes and nursing interventions)
    4. implementation (initiate the care plan)
    5. evaluation (determine if goals/outcomes have been met)
    the first thing you must do is to assess which i am going to assume you have already done. then, you move on to step #2 of the nursing process. you need to make a list of your patient's symptoms before you do anything else. the nandas, as you call them, which are really the nursing diagnoses, and the goals and nursing interventions are all based upon the symptoms that your patient has. so, this list of the patient's symptoms is crucial to the remainder of the care plan that has to be written. you have posted only two symptoms and i am sure there are more that you have either not posted or that you missed:
    • incontinent diarrhea
    • doesn't consume enough water
    i can only assign one nursing diagnosis from this information: diarrhea r/t shortened bowel aeb [you need to state how many diarrhea stools the patient is having a day]. if you had assessment information on the patient's skin we could look at nursing diagnoses that pertain to impaired skin integrity or the risk of impaired skin integrity because of her incontinence.

    every nursing diagnosis has signs and symptoms. you need to get yourself a nursing diagnosis reference book to help you in assigning nursing diagnoses.

    also, you need to look up the signs and symptoms of diarrhea [abdominal pain and cramping, hyperactive bowel sounds] because i'm sure you missed some of them in your patient. i know, because i've had this surgery and had every one of these symptoms. you also need to read about bowel resection surgery. if this patient is post-op then this is a surgical patient and there are surgical concerns (like a incision) and post-op complications to be on the lookout for that need to be included in the care plan and these all have nursing diagnoses that can be assigned to them. however, i can't help you without you posting any symptoms.

    i am going to again suggest that you read the information on these previous posts:
