The last post is correct.
You should try:
Acute Pain: dysuria r/t inflammatory process in bladder
Impaired Urinary elimination: frequency r/t urinary tract infection
Infection is not on the NANDA list... Only risk for infection is.
Since the child already has a UTI you can not do a risk for.
In my opinion Acute Pain is your primary nursing diagnosis because of the child verbalizing it hurts. You as the nurse want to treat the pain first. ( of course that is a collaborative one, since the doc or NP has to order the pain med )
If you are having alot of trouble with Care Plans
, I recommend the Nursing Diagnosis Handbook
by Betty Ackley and Gail Ladwig. It is excellent!!
It has a list in the front of the book with medical diagnosis: and then it tells you which nursing diagnoses relate to it... I just looked up UTI cuz that is teh medical diagnosis... and it gave me four nursing diagnoseses for UTI.
You just have to decide which ones are best because you have to personalize the care plan. Since the pt stated it hurts when he pees... the acute pain is the primary. But others do apply. At our school we always have to priortize our nursing dx. Good luck, let me know if you need more.
