Gastroenteritis Care Plan



Ref: CP074

Gastroenteritis Care Plan

Gastroenteritis is an infection of the stomach and bowel. The most common symptoms are repeated episodes of diarrhoea, three or more episodes within the space of twenty four hours, and vomiting. Gastroenteritis can be caused by a virus such as the norovirus, or by a number of different types of bacteria.

Typically, bacterial gastroenteritis develops as a result of food poisoning. These infections can interfere with the absorption of water and salts from the contents of the intestines into the body, which is why the most common symptom of gastroenteritis is watery diarrhoea and why there is a high risk of dehydration.

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.
