Chronic Kidney Failure Nursing Care Plan

The main role of the kidneys is to filter waste products from the blood before converting them into urine. The kidneys also help maintain blood pressure and the correct levels of chemicals in the body which, in turn, helps the heart and muscles function properly.

The kidneys produce a type of vitamin D that keeps bones healthy and they produce a substance called erythropoietin, which helps stimulate production of red blood cells. Chronic kidney disease is the reduced ability of the kidney to carry out these functions in the long-term. This is most often caused by the strain placed on the kidneys by other conditions, most commonly diabetes and high blood pressure.

There is no cure for chronic kidney disease, although treatment can slow or halt the progression of the disease and can prevent other serious conditions developing. People with CKD are known to have an increased risk of a stroke or heart attack because of changes that occur to the circulation.

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.
