I appreciate your reply, but here's the problem.
We 1st list several potential N Dx and I have all those listed, and we put them in an order of priority. Then we take the top 2 priorities and elaborate on them.
The problem is, the pt doesn't have any of those issues and Nausea would still be a higher priority in my mind.
Nursing Dx is just bullcrap to sell books and make Leaders in Nursing that promote this crap feel special and like they're the ones elevating the profession. It is all actually meaningless busy work and that's EXACTLY how I feel about it.
What cracks me up, I thought for my other one I had it easy with his delayed wound healing from surgery. I started out with that as my top priority but then I started reading the interventions and one of them was a warming blanket during surgery. I'd like to call whoever comes up with this BULLCRAP that the patient has already had surgery and I don't have a time machine to go back to the surgery.
Just like George Carlin says, "It's all BS and it's bad for ya!"
