NURSING CARE PLAN
Begin your NCP by listing ALL your clients individual problems (at least 10) and then identify an appropriate nursing diagnosis that you can think of that would apply to your client.  Determine which 3 problems/nursing diagnoses are of greatest priority and then add a #1, #2, and #3 to indicate which of the two have highest priority Nursing Clinical Packet Patient Assessment and Care Plan.  Risks would not be priority 1, 2, or 3!!!!!

Expectation is to have at least 10 nursing diagnosis listed!

#    List the Client problem An appropriate Nursing Diagnosis stem

(REFER TO YOUR NURSING DIAGNOSIS LIST)

Related to part of the statement  (This is individual to your client) As evidenced by part of the statement (This is individual to your client)

1 SAMPLE: Reports severe pain in the right hip. “Acute Pain” “related to” fractured right hip “as evidenced by” verbal report of pain rated at an 8 on a scale of 0 –to 10.
2 SAMPLE: Complete bed rest “Risk for Impaired skin integrity” “related to “ immobility NONE it is a “Risk for” diagnosis so there is no evidence statement

From the list above your faculty member will give you direction regarding how many and which diagnoses they want you to develop for either a Nursing Care Plan and/or a Concept Map. Nursing Clinical Packet Patient Assessment and Care Plan.

 

SAMPLE NCP

NANDA DIAGNOSIS STATEMENT /RELATED TO STATEMENT/AS EVIDENCED BY STATEMENT:  Acute Pain related to right hip fracture as evidenced by a verbal report of pain rated 8 on a scale of 0 -10. 

 

ASSESSMENT

(Data that directly pertains to the above nursing diagnosis)

OUTCOME STATEMENT

(Patient centered, realistic, specific, measurable, target time)

INTERVENTIONS

(Individualized, specific, frequency)

Minimum of 4-5 interventions per plan

SCIENTIFIC RATIONALE

(Supporting statement from text or other source, cite source)

 

EVALUATION OF OUTCOME

(Met, partially met, unmet, unknown by target time)

SUBJECTIVE DATA:  “My right hip hurts me so much every time I move.  I am so afraid to start physical therapy” SHORT TERM:  Client will report pain level rated at a 3 or lower 30 minutes after pain medication taken 1. Educate the client on the importance of pain relief to enhance her rehabilitation efforts and include education on various types of methods to relieve pain.

 

 

2. Encourage client to express any questions or concerns she may have regarding pain management methods to alleviate anxiety and fears.

 

 

 

3.  Educate the client on her responsibility to honestly report pain when it occurs as well as reporting if the current pain management is effective or ineffective for providing her pain relief

 

4. Provide for alternative/complementary measures of pain relief, such as, reduce lighting and noise, soothing music, pet therapy, massage, and hot/cold packs according to client preferences.

1. “There are many ways to manage pain.  In addition to pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic measures, simple nursing interventions can alter patients’ pain experience and speed their recovery.” Taylor, Lillis and White pg. 1168.

 

2.   “Common fears include a loss of control and embarrassment by being unable to deal with pain maturely… The patient may view the need of for medication as a sign of weakness or may fear addiction or loss of effectiveness at a later date.” Taylor, Lillis and White pg. 1169.

 

 

3. “As a patient advocate, ensure that a strong emphasis on the need for aggressive, individualized strategies that can minimize or eliminate acute pain and improve patient outcomes.  Preventing pain is easier then treating it once after it occurs.”  Taylor, Lillis and White pg. 1178.

 

4. Alternative/complementary measures will provide an added benefit of distraction from pain experience and augment analgesic effect. Cold/hot therapy can provide constriction and or dilation which will reduce pain inflammation in each specific circumstance Daniels. Pg 378

Short Term Goal: Met; pain was rated at a 2 on a scale of 0 to 10 after administration of Vicodin.
