Postoperative Hemorrhage Simulation: Ward Ordona Name: Globe University/MSB College POST-OP HEMORRHAGE 2 Mental Health in the News Assignment Describe the initial postoperative management of the ... nephrectomy patient and discuss collaborative management designed to prevent complications. Nephrectomy patients may experience considerable discomfort in the area of the incision. Patients may also experience numbness, caused by severed nerves, near or on the incision. Pain relievers are administered following the surgical procedure and during the recovery period on an as-needed basis (Thompson & Mcafarland & Hirsch & Tucker, 2002). Although deep breathing and coughing may be painful due to the proximity of the incision to the diaphragm, breathing exercises are encouraged to prevent pneumonia. Maintain gravity drainage; irrigate only as ordered. Maintaining drainage tube patency is vital to prevent potential hydronephrosis. Bright bleeding or unexpected drainage may indicate a surgical complication. Frequently assess urine color, amount, and character, noting any hematuria, pyuria, or sediment. Promptly report oliguria or anuria, as well as changes in urine color or clarity. Preserving function of the remaining kidney is critical; frequent assessment allows early intervention for potential problems [Show More]
