Nursing Diagnosis for Cholera

Cholera is an acute intestinal infection caused by ingestion of food or water contaminated with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. It has a short incubation period, from less than one day to five days, and produces an enterotoxin that causes a copious, painless, watery diarrhoea that can quickly lead to severe dehydration and death if treatment is not promptly given. Vomiting also occurs in most patients.

Nursing Diagnosis for Cholera
  1. Deficient fluid volume related to excessive fluid loss through the stool or emesis
  2. Imbalanced Nutrition: Less Than Body Requirements related to loss of fluids through diarrhea, inadequate intake
  3. Risk for infection related to microorganisms that penetrate the gastrointestinal tract.
  4. Impaired Skin Integrity: perianal, related to irritation from diarrhea
  5. Anxiety related to separation from parents, unfamiliar environment, a stressful procedure.
  6. Interrupted Family Processes related to crisis situations, lack of knowledge about diseases, treatment of clients.
