Crohn’s Disease Nursing Care Plan

Crohn’s disease is a chronic long term condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system. Inflammation can affect any part of the digestive system, from the mouth to the back passage, but most commonly occurs in the last section of the small intestine, or the large intestine.

Crohn’s disease can go into remission for long periods and be symptom free or have very mild symptoms. Remission can be followed by periods where symptoms flare up and become particularly troublesome.

A complication associated with Crohn’s disease is intestinal stricture where the inflammation of the bowel causes scar tissue to form, leading to the affected areas becoming narrowed causing a risk of bowel obstruction. Ulcers can also develop due to inflammation and over time they can develop fistula, a tunnel that runs from one part of the digestive system to another or, in some cases to the bladder, vaginal, anus or skin.

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