Nursing Care Plan – Appendectomy

Appendectomy is the removal of the inflamed appendix. In an open, conventional, and uncomplicated appendectomy, the surgeon removes the appendix through an incision approximately 3 inches long in the right lower quadrant. The incision is larger if the appendix is in a typical position or if peritonitis is present.
