Data Analysis and Planning - Grief and Loss: Application of the Nursing Process

The nurse must base nursing diagnoses for the person experiencing loss on subjective and objective assessment data.

Data Analysis and Planning

 

The nurse must base nursing diagnoses for the person experiencing loss on subjective and objective assessment data. NANDA-I nursing diagnoses (2009) used for clients experiencing grief include:

 

·    Grieving: A normal complex process that includes emo-tional, physical, spiritual, social, and intellectual re-sponses and behaviors by which individuals, families, and communities incorporate an actual, anticipated, or perceived loss into their daily lives.

 

·    Complicated grieving: A disorder that occurs after the death of a significant other, in which the experience of distress accompanying bereavement fails to follow nor-mative expectations and manifests in functional impair-ment (previously titled Dysfunctional grieving).
