    All so, the Pt info I put in was all we were given... Not an actual Pt, just a written sheet so we would have stuff to keep us busy on our 1 vacation throughout the entire program.

    Hitting wall because in my opinion, not enough Pt information was given.

    Thanks again

    Im having difficulty with the 3 Nursing dx and related to factors. I've never had to do a full care plan on my own and am hitting a wall.

    59 yr M comes to ER complaining of worsening SOB and coughing up yellow sputum. Smoker, and truckdriver on the road all the time.
    R-26 P-120 T-98.4 SaO2 88%ra.
    wheezes and gurgles in chest, xray taken- not pneumonia.
    finger tips brown and clubbed- sign of hypoxemia
    WBC slightly elevated
    RBC slightly elevated.
    DR dx acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis
    Pt admitted to hospital

    I've come up with Ineffective Airway clearance r/t bronchial secretion build up and bronchial inflammation????

    Could Impaired Gas Exchange r/t hypoxemia be a dx???

    Risk for infection r/t increased WBC ???

    I'm at

    Any help or direction on how to organize and write out a careplan would be GREAT!!!
    I had one 3 day rotation in a LTC and the careplans where pretty much computer generated and then adjusted to Pt, and even then I didnt get to actually see one done.
    The LPN's said they didn't really do careplans that the RCM did??

    Do LPN's normally write up full care plans??
