ARCIOLES-FERNANDEZ, José; OLIVER-JIMENEZ, Isabel María; SANCHEZ-MARTINEZ, Mª Luisa  y  AMAT-MEDINA, Concepción. Nursing care process to a paediatric patient during a renal biopsy. Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2020, vol.23, n.3, pp.303-310.  Epub 04-Ene-2021. ISSN 2255-3517.

Clinical case:

A 13-year-old patient admitted to a third-level hospital from paediatric nephrology outpatient clinics for a renal biopsy after suffering, in previous evaluations, episodes of intermittent macroscopic and persistent microscopic haematuria and nephrotic-range proteinuria.

Description of the care plan:

The hospital paediatric nursing unit established an initial care plan on admission and after surgery adjusted to Gordon’s functional patterns, considering the patterns related to fear in the child, anxiety and family melancholy, resulting in the activation of the reception protocol, increased stress level due to food intake modification, increased coping in the post-surgical phase as well as pain, risk of infection, discomfort, overweight due to unhealthy eating and post-biopsy haematuria.

Evaluation of the care plan:

During the 4-day hospital stay prior to the biopsy, 24-hour blood and urine biochemical tests and anemia study were performed. The parents were very interested in the evolution of the tests and how to contain anxiety and keep the child calm due to the knowledge that they would do a blood puncture. While he was hospitalized, he did not meet the nutritional requirements. The day after the biopsy, he was discharged with guidelines to start a healthier diet.


The NANDA/NOC/NIC taxonomy allows working in nursing based on findings, responding to the real needs of patients to help improve clinical practice.
