I'm a second semester (out of 5) ADN student-- And tomorrow is one of the last two clinical days I have left for this semester. Today was preclinical.I'm a bit nervous because I failed one of the two previous paperwork days because of the goals sheet. My professor is wanting good, cut-the-crap kind of goals.I'm having trouble coming up with any.She has beginning COPD, beginning congestive heart failure, hypertension, a diabetic ulcer on half of her great toe that's looking better than I'd expected. I have this one:Goal: Prevent infection of Great Toe ulcer.Interventions:Keep cleanKeep Covered(I Can't come up with a third one!!)And I need a second goal, complete with three more interventions.I'm thinking:Goal: Maintain blood pressure at or below 145/85Interventions:Medicate per MAR??Some of the confusion is coming from the fact that our professor gave us an additional lecture last week that if we write out a goal, our interventions should be only things that DIRECTLY and MEASURABLY effect the outcome-- Like if the problem is edema, you can't say daily weights, because while that is a good thing to do, it does not achieve your goal of reducing edema. Which is understandable. But it leaves me completely blank.AAAH!
