Hi, I'm new to all nurses so i'm not exactly sure how to start a new thread to ask my question..
I have an 80 yo female patient. She was admitted for hypoglycemia, they also diagnosed her with a UTI. Her blood glucose on arrival was 20. She was disoriented x3. had visual hallucinations, she has COPD--during morning meds she look at the inhaler like she had never seen it before in her life. unable to remember how many children she had, waiting for her son to come (he had already been to visit earlier in the afternoon) her urine bacteria level was >100,000 ml/col
would this work as the nursing diagnosis? i've never done secondary to in my diagnosis before so i'm not quite sure how they work
Acute confusion r/t delirium secondary to UTI infection and hypoglycemia
Thanks to whoever responds to this, I appreciate what help you can provide me with!
