Can anyone give me a nursing care plan for dysthymia?

Psychotherapy: 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. ...Read more

If pt. is D/C'd back to a RCFE but now receives nursing services from a hospice,  does this mean end of life care? Pt. had aspirational pneumonia.

If true hospice care: Yes, if it is true hospice care. However, some hospice services also provide "bridge care" for patients whose end is not quite in sight yet (it's like palliative care). Hospice services are a wonderful asset to have at the end of one's life. We all have an end. When our end is in sight, hospice is the way to go. It lets one die a good death, at home, pain-free, worry-free, in peace and quiet. ...Read more

Dementia pt. had aspirational pneumonia D'C'd back to RCFE even tho needs higher level of care. Nursing scvs provided by hospice. Why not sent to SNF?

A different focus: Hospice services are a wonderful asset to have at the end of one's life. We all have an end. When the end is near, we don't go to a skilled nursing facility (think of an SNF as a place to recover and get back to good mental and good physical functioning). When our end is in sight, hospice is the way to go. It lets one die a good death, at home, pain-free, worry-free, in peace and quiet. ...Read more
