    Help with nursing diagnosis!!

    She was not feeling well for a few days and most not have ate or really drank in days. She is a stage III renal disease, cirrhosis and was admitted with hyperkalemia and hyponatremia and put on IV. She seems to be very cooperative but sticks with the statement that she doesnt need help and doesn't want to be a bother. She has no children and a helpful neighbor that does help her on occasion.

    Help with nursing diagnosis!!

    I am trying to find a diagnosis for a 79 yr old patient that refuses to accept that her physical condition is declining and that she needs help at home with her ADL's. She was admitted for severe dehydration primarily but she is covered in bruises from falls and she has an already healing shoulder fx. She doesn't want to bother anyone and her neighbor helps her out by shopping and getting her mail. She has limited mobility but gets around with a walker. I believe that her realizing that she needs a little help and admitting it would be a huge step forward for safety sake. How do I get a nursing diagnosis for this? Defensive coping, ineffective denial? Any help would be so much appreciated...Thanks,RN student Megan
