Re: Topic 1 DQ 1There are differences between a nursing practice problem and medical practice problem.Nursing practice problem is defined as a problem noted during the nurses assessment of apatient, often from a medical condition or disease the patient is diagnosed with. It ranges fromthe care the patient needs from the time they enter the healthcare facility, when they are seenby a physician and diagnosed, through the assessments of the patients needs after the care isprovided. With the nurses assessment of this patient, a collection of comprehensive data isneeded. An example for this would be the nurse completing a comprehensive exam on thepatient to examine the problem and needs of the patient, such as taking vital signs, checkingtheir oxygen saturations, assessing their pain and even assessing their ADL skills. Theassessment data is then shared with the doctor to aide in the psychological and social exams tofurther look into the patients condition.
