Nursing Care Plan – Diarrhea

Diarrhea is the passage of loose and watery stools (more than 3 bowel movements per day) often associated with gassiness, bloating, and abdominal pain. It may also be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and fever. Diarrhea results to loss of body fluids and salts leading to dehydration of varying severity. Severe dehydration may cause death especially in children.
