Nursing Actions /Interventions

  1. Hi i am new here and not sure if this is the right place to ask, so sorry if its not. I am a 1st year student nurse and have just started learning mental health. I was wondering if anyone could help me with this work. I have to come up with a nusring action or intervention for each of the following:

    They are patient problems -
    Fearful of being a patient in a MH hospital
    Refuses to take prescribed anti-psychotic drug
    Stays in bedroom all day
    Poor social skills
    Believes staff are trying to poison him/her
    Has difficulty talking about his/her feelings
    Denies having a drink problem
    Has poor attention and concentration
    Resents being legally detained on the ward
    Refuses to travel by car following recent road traffic accident


    I have done some of them, but cant find info anywhere!

    I am curious. . .which ones have you done? Where did you find the answers for them? Why would you list them here if you already found the answers for them?

    Im sorry! I would help you out, but I am only 3 weeks into school. I wanted to respond to Daytonite (I think).
    I know those questions-
    "which ones have you done? Where did you find the answers for them? Why would you list them here if you already found the answers for them?"
    were intended for the "original poster" to answer, but I wanted to say that it always helps to have lots of input. I thought your questions came across a little insinuating. So, I just wanted to say she may have posted the questions she already answered to see if anyone could add something she may not have thought of. Getting input from more expierenced nurses helps us (student nurses) build a better understanding. : )

    *Best of luck on getting all the info you can for those!

    Nevermind, I thought you have a nursing diagnosis and you were looking for interventions to help achieve a goal.

    Some of the things you listed sound like data, I guess you could go with therapeutic communication and some teaching. Maybe do some vital signs in relation to her fear/anxiety
