Hi all, I am a student and in need of any assistance I can get with a nursing care plan. Background on the patient: the scenario is the patient is at home and I am their home health nurse. 75 year old female post CVA 5 days ago. She is confused, has impaired memory, difficulty swallowing, and a focus on fear of dying. For my nursing diagnosis I have fear r/t fear of dying as evidenced by patient stating "help me I feel like I'm going to die" and increase in heart rate from 85 bpm to 130 bpm. I am struggling with the client outcomes as she is confused and responses are inappropriate. She will not be able to identify or demonstrate teaching. What are realistic outcomes that you expect with patients who are not alert and oriented? Any help is greatly appreciated.
