Please refer to the link at the end of this article for more in-depth Diabetes information for both patients and medical professionals!
Nursing Care Plan Goal Statements: Patient will acknowledge his or her behaviors / feelings that exacerbate imbalanced nutrition (excessive) within 8 hours. (this is a great example of a short term goal statement). Patient will design a realistic dietary plan which will assist him / her with decreasing caloric intake, within 24 hours. (the key word in this statement is REALISTIC, to increase compliance). Patient will incorporate at least 30 minutes of well tolerated exercise into daily schedule by the end of 48 hours. (another short term goal statement, a lifestyle change in the longterm).
Nursing Interventions for Imbalanced Nutrition (Excessive): The Nurse shall explain and have patient verbalize the relationship of diabetes and diet, and the patient shall give a return explanation is his / her own words. (this nursing intervention will help clear up and misconseptions and reinforce the medical value of a healthy diabetic diet).
Patient will consult with a dietician to find out what an optimal caloric intake for her size, activity level and goal of weight loss is, so that she knows where to start in planning her dietary needs. (initial education and working knowledge).
Go with your gut and tell the doctor what you think and let them know what your concerns are. The worst thing that could happen is youll annoy the hell out of the on-call doctor who was getting ready to take a nap after a long day at work. Better to be safe than sorry!
