Can anyone give me a nursing care plan for dysthymia?

Psychotherapy

Open-uri20120828-27236-vnuy8l
Treatment for dysthymia is similar to treatment for depression. It should include psychotherapy and may also be appropriate to treat with antidepressants. Start with your primary care physician and a good therapist. Cognitive behavioral therapies and interpersonal therapies can be effective. Exercise, good sleep, good nutrition, and overall self-care help improve mood naturally as well.

Consult your texts

This site is not a substitute for doing your own homework. Your nursing instructors expect your work to be done in the jargon of the teaching references they provide you for study. As you enter the profession you will be better prepared and more respected if you avoid shortcuts to complete your assignments.

What is the best nursing care plan for chronic kidney disease secondary to diabetes mellitus?

Diabetes

Open-uri20120810-22778-1wy7qug
Chronic kidney disease is a long term complication of DM. I am afraid there is no nursing care involved, but appropriate medications, can postpone the need for dialysis depending on the severity of illness.

Need to know

Hipaa
What state you are in to be able to research this. Best thing to do is to consult a lawyer in your mother's state who has dealt with this type of issue before.

Which interventions are considered the best in bedsore nursing care?

Team approach

Bed_sore
Turning the patient every 2 hours like clockwork, and getting the pressure off the wound is step 1. Good nutrition, and proper wound care is next. Make sure the wound is not constantly soiled with urine or feces. Get a wound care team involved.

What nursing intervention is indicated for leg cast for fractured femur?

Skin care

Hand_fracture
Leg casts for femur fractures can develop pressure sores at the proximal and distal areas of the cast. Also if in a very young child, soiling of the padding can lead to eventual skin breakdown. Meticulous inspection of the cast margins a couple times of day to make sure there are not visible pressure points, redness or abrasions would be helpful. Cast modification/change may be needed.
