Pedi Care Plan


Hello! I need some help. I have to make a discharge care plan with 3 nursing diagnoses for a 6 year old boy who had a bilateral myringotomy with placement of pressure equalizer tubes. Its a made up scenario. I have not started Pedi yet!!! Thanks:confused:

First, google 'bilateral myringotomy' to find out about why this procedure was performed. Once you find the diagnosis that preceeds this procedure, do some research on some common complications associated with it. If you still can't come up with any nursing diagnosis based on your research, go back to your A&P, Human Development, and common sense (if this happened to you/your kid, what would be your concerns for discharge). I bet you can come up with more nursing diagnosis than you think! Good Luck!
