Brain Haemorrhage Nursing Care Plan

A brain haemorrhage is bleeding in or around the area of the brain. The cause can include high blood pressure, abnormally weak blood vessels which leak, drug abuse, and trauma.

Symptoms can include weakness on one side of the body, difficulty speaking, or a sense of numbness, and difficulty functioning, including problems with walking.

In general, bleeding anywhere inside of the skull is called an intracranial haemorrhage. Bleeding within the brain itself is known as an intracerebral haemorrhage. Bleeding can also occur between the covering of the brain and the brain tissue itself, referred to as a subarachnoid haemorrhage. If a blood clot occurs between the skull and the brain, it is known as a subdural or epidural haematoma depending on whether it is below or above the dura of the brain. Subdural and epidural haematomas are more likely to occur as a result of a trauma or occur after a fall.

When bleeding occurs within the brain itself, headache may not occur, as the brain does not have the ability to sense the ongoing disturbance. However, the coverings of the brain, called meninges, are extremely sensitive and if bleeding occurs there, a sudden and severe headache is a common symptom.

The Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred Care Plan.
