NURSING CARE PLAN 1. Acute pain related to presence of surgical incision secondary to status post laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Assessment Subjective: Masakit ang hiwako as verbalized by the patient Nursing Diagnosis Acute pain related to presence of surgical incision secondary to status post orchiectomy as evidenced by pain scale of 8/10. (Pain is a common aftermath for every surgery after the anesthesia wore down. Pain is recognized in two different forms: physiologic pain and clinical pain. Physiologic pain comes and goes, and is the result of experiencing a highintensity sensation. It >Position the patient properly in bed. Elevate head of bed. Maintain anatomic alignment. Alignment helps prevent pain from malposition and it enhances comfort Planning At the end of 3 hours nursing intervention, the patient will be able to report a decrease in Nursing Interventions > Monitor and assess vital signs every 2 hours becausevital signs are usually altered in acute pain >Instruct and demonstrate to the patient the use of deep breathing exercise. Also instruct patient to do splinting while doing deep breathing Evaluation At the end of rendering 3 hours nursing intervention, the patient was able to report pain as relieved and controlled.

often acts as a safety mechanism to warn individuals of danger (e.g., a burn, animal scratch, or broken glass). Clinical pain, in contrast, is marked by hypersensitivity to painful stimuli around a localized site, and also is felt in non-injured areas nearby. When a patient undergoes surgery, tissues and nerve endings are traumatized, resulting in incision pain. This trauma overloads the pain receptors that send messages to the spinal cord, which becomes overstimulated. The resultant central sensitization is a type of

Diagnosis Impaired skin integrity related to orchiectomy surgery

Planning At the end of 8 hours of nursing intervention the patient will be able to display improvement in wound healing

Nursing Interventions >monitor vital signs especially temperature every 4 hours.Early recognition of developing infection enables rapid institution of treatment and prevention of further complications.


Objective: >post orchiectomy >disruption of the dermis, epidermis, and subcutaneous tissues. >with 0.5 to 1 cm incisions at the right lower inguinal area ->ncisions covered with dry and intact dressing >skin slightly warm to touch. Temperature: 36.6C

At the end of 2 days nursing intervention, the patient was able maintain incision site and dressing intact >Assess dressings/ wound everyday. and dry. Describe wounds and observe for changes.thisEstablishes comparative baseline providing opportunity for timely intervention. >Keep the incision site clean and dry, carefully dress wounds.Keeping incision site clean and dry prevents infection; it also aids in the process of wound healing. >Encourage early ambulation. Assist patient in doing active and passive range of motion exercises.Movement stimulates circulation and assists in the bodys natural process of repair. >Place in semi-Fowlers position or moderate high back rest.Proper

positioning decreases tension in the operative site and promotes healing. >Instruct to wear clean, dry, loosefitting clothes, preferably cotton fabric. Skin friction caused by stiff or rough clothes leads to irritation of fragile skin and increases risk for infection. Loose clothing reduces pressure on compromised tissues, which may improve circulation/healing > Emphasize importance of adequate nutrition and fluid intake. Encourage patient to eat foods rich in protein, iron and vit. C.Improved nutrition and hydration will improve skin condition. Protein and iron helps in repair of tissues. Vitamin C is important for immune system function and increases resistance to some pathogens. >Administer antibiotics as indicated. May be given prophylactically or to treat specific infection and enhance healing.
