Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a vital tool for planning care based on humans’ immediate needs. The first need that must be met is physiological needs such as digestion, breathing, circulation, and elimination (Treas, 2021). My first nursing diagnosis would aim at meeting the patient’s physiological needs, which are imbalanced nutrition less than body requirements. Fatigue and disturbed thought processes will be the second level of safety and security to prevent injuries such as falls. Social isolation is a need that signifies the absence of love and belonging at the third, fourth, and fifth levels of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. If I were to implement this plan of care, I would expect some in improving the knowledge of the disease process to be met. This is because gaining knowledge appears first, followed b a behavior change later. I would ensure that the patient participates in planning to help identify their beliefs and immediate needs to be met.
