PUIGVERT VILALTA, Carme; MURIANA ZAMUDIO, Carme; GARCIA GARRIDO, Lluïsa  and  NAVARRO FERRER, Encarnación. Evaluation of the recording of information on the care plan and clinical path in the implementation of a peritoneal catheter. Rev Soc Esp Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2005, vol.8, n.4, pp.24-32. ISSN 1139-1375.

The aim of this study is to draw up and evaluate the implementation of the care plan and the clinical path in the placing of a peritoneal catheter to check that the clinical path is a good record for nursing. To draw up the care plan, we have conducted the evaluation on the basis of the needs of V. Henderson. For diagnoses we have used NANDA Taxonomy II and for interventions and outcomes we have related NIC and NOC. The clinical path highlights the process undergone by the patient from implementation of the catheter (2 days in hospital), control in the peritoneal dialysis unit every 24 hours (8 days) until treatment definitively commences. A sheet has been designed to record incidences in the clinical path that lets us detect any deviations in order to apply corrective measures. The clinical path has the same characteristics as the records. These management instruments have facilitated the quality of care, taking into account outcome-focused actions and make it possible to estimate the costs generated by nursing.
