Nursing Diagnosis of Mothers and Roomed-In Newborns
Objetivo: To identify the more frequent nursing diagnoses (ND) among mothers and newborns (NB) in a rooming-in accommodation, according to the taxonomy of the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA) 2015-2017. Method: This is a quantitative, cross-sectional, descriptive study in a Rooming-in Maternity of a University Hospital located in the Midwest region of Brazil, in the period from July to October 2013. Results: The sample consisted of 101 mothers and their 102 newborn babies. There were 20 NDs identified among the mothers and nine ND among the newborns. The most common ND among the mothers were the risk of infection (96%), impaired tissue integrity (96%), impaired comfort (84%) and willingness to improved breastfeeding (66%); among the newborns ND there were the risk of infection (100%) and the risk of imbalance of body temperature (100%). Conclusion: A The identification of ND is essential for the work of nurses in rooming-in hospitals. It is expected that the results obtained in this research can contribute to the effectiveness of the NP in similar situations.
