The nursing process works as a systematic guide for client-centered care with 5 sequential steps. These are evaluation, diagnosis, planning, implementation and evaluation. Evaluation, the final step in the nursing process, is crucial to determine if, after the application of the nursing process, the patient's condition or well-being improves. A goal is the expected behavior or response that indicates the resolution of a nursing diagnosis or the maintenance of a healthy state.
The expected outcomes established during planning are the standards by which the nurse judges whether the goals have been met and whether the care has been successful. Ninety percent of the study participants lacked sufficient experience to apply the nursing process to standard practice. Nursing practice and educational environments form a link with clinical knowledge and experience, and that link facilitates the transition to the current workforce as an indispensable team player and leader in this new wave of health care. Evaluation is defined as the judgment about the effectiveness of nursing care in meeting the client's goals; in this phase, the nurse compares the client's behavioral responses with the client's predetermined goals and outcome criteria.
The planning stage is where goals and results that have a direct impact on patient care are formulated according to EDP guidelines. The evaluation involves observing the patient's behavior (facial expression) during conversations about their recovery. For the second nursing diagnosis, the risk of falls, the nurse evaluated the outcome criteria as “Fulfilled” according to the evaluation. The patient verbalizes their understanding and asks for appropriate help when getting out of bed.
Implementation is the step that involves the action or action and the actual execution of the nursing interventions described in the care plan. After reaching a conclusion about the status of the client's problems, the nurse modifies the care plan as indicated. Compare the behavior and responses of the patients you evaluated before performing nursing interventions with the behavior and responses that occur after administering nursing care. The evaluation focuses on the effectiveness of nursing interventions by reviewing the expected results to determine if they were met within the indicated time frames.
Physiological and safety needs provide the basis for the implementation of nursing care and nursing interventions. When a nurse treats a patient with a peripheral intravenous route, the goal of “keeping the intravenous site free of phlebitis” is established on the basis of sound practical standards. In fact, evaluative measures are the same as evaluation measures, but they are carried out at the point of care when decisions are made about the patient's status and progress.
