KolkataMom hit the nail on the head for you!!
Thanks Lys!! I actually have had a lot of trouble with nursing care plans in school. I was looking at them the wrong way and making them way too complicated.
It finally hit me one day, that the goal it is the outcome that the PATIENT will do. While the interventions are something the NURSE will do to help the patient reach the goal. I know, I know they told me this in class, but for some reason it just was not clicking
So with airway clearance, the ultmate goal is for the pt. to not aspirate. So what can I do, while with the pt., to help him/her not do this (interventions)............... I think some instructors make them sound way to complicated. Kem, forget fancy wording, keep it simple, and you will prgress with them.
