Dad has pneumonia but nursing home has him DNR. SHould it be treated?

Different issues

Advance_directive
A DNR order refers to resuscitation during cardiac arrest and has nothing to do with whether to treat pneumonia. It's reasonable to treat pneumonia despite a DNR order. But in some cases, patients or their families may choose not treat pneumonia if it's felt that it would not improve quality of life. Pneumonia used to be called "the old man's friend" because it was a fairly benign way to die.

Lady in my hall died of pneumonia how do you get it in nursing home?

See below

It is not a question of how. It is a question of why this person died from pneumonia. Maybe this person may have a weaker immune system or enroll hospice service.

My mother has aspiration pneumonia and a bad UTI. She is immune to many antibiotics now due to repeated UTIs. She is just in a nursing home.Hospital?

Aspiration pneumonia

Aspiration_pneumonia
I would say your mother, with an aspiration pneumonia, belongs in a hospital for treatment and evaluation. Have her brought to an ER to see if she is sick enough to be admitted.

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.

How should I start my nursing care plan for measles on a recovering pediatric patient?

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.

Unable to get any health info or nursing care plan on mom due to HIPAA. She signed both of us as PoA in TX but in this state can be only 1. What to do?

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.
