TOPIC: Concept analysis of the nursing diagnosis risk for trauma. PURPOSE: To examine the nursing diagnosis risk for trauma and to specify the risk factors for falling. SOURCES: Research and informational articles on falling, and NANDA Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification, 1999-2000. CONCLUSIONS: Replace the current nursing diagnosis risk for trauma with the more specific nursing diagnosis unintentional injury risk: falls. The other risks included in risk for trauma (e.g., burns) also will need to be developed.
