OK, I looked this on up in my care plan book and here are the Expected Outcomes Listed:
Patient will regain skin integrity--for ex. pressure ulcer will decrease by (a specific size)
Patients wound will heal
Prevent skin breakdown
Patient will communicate understanding of skincare measures.
Patient will perform skin care technique.
The thing about these dreaded care plans
is that they are individualized--so you have to take the expected outcomes and tailor to make a short term goal. Our instructor wanted us to make it pertain to the time we were there. So is that is your case, the wound will remain clean, dry and free from infection. No further signs of skin breakdown as evidenced by increased erythema, etc.
Having said that--all instructors want them a little different so maybe you can find a senior student in your program and ask them.
Hang in there!! The care plans do get easier and SAVE them all, because once you turn in one your instructor likes, you can just tailor it slightly for the next patient if they have the same dx--knowing it has passed the critique already.
