Mental Health Care Plans

Posted

I was wondering about the prioritized list of Nandas for Mental Health... are the Risk for's still at the bottom of the list? Because my Risk for's seem to be more of a priority than disturbed body image and ineffective coping...???Help?

Psych is the only area I'm aware of in which a "Risk for" dx can be a higher priority than a "regular" dx. Risk for injury is often an issue when dealing with suicidal, self-injurious, or potentially violent clients, and safety is the highest priority in mental health settings.
