    Nursing Diagnoses- drug overdose

    I apologize to those of you who thought I was taking the easy way out! Not trying to do that at all. I just joined allnurses.com and I was in a hurry when I posted so my info was minimal. I do appreciate those who gave me a little feedback! We have not yet covered OD's and all I can find in my Psych text is information on addiction. I need nursing Dx for an actual, happening right now, overdose. With that being said, I think that 1st and foremost Dx would be Risk for Injury and outcome would be pts VS's stabilized within a certain amount of time,What would be a realistic time frame? (not familiar with the time aspects of OD), pt does not hurt himself or others? what other outcomes? Secondly, assuming CNS depressant OD, Ineffective breathing pattern? (Resp would be low) Outcome- pts resp within normal limits within 24 hrs? (again unsure on time frame) Third, Ineffective coping? outcome- pt will identify precipitating factors to the incident?, pt will come up with and implement a plan for coping? Another Dx, Alterations in sensory perception? I just do not have much experience with drug OD yet and am having some trouble finding the right info in my books. Can anyone lead me in the right direction or give me some feedback on what I have come up with? I appreciate the help!

    Nursing Diagnoses- drug overdose

    I need some help with 3 nursing diagnoses and 3 corresponding desired outcomes for illegal drug overdose! Does not matter what category of drug. I guess the 3 most important diagnoses/desired outcomes for general overdose patients would work! Can anyone help me?
