Elimination Complexities


Elimination complexities are described as health conditions that prevent a patient from excreting waste properly. According to Nakanishi et al. (2016), one of the common elimination complexities is Uremia. Healthcare experts indicate that their illness affects normal urine excretion. Elimination complexities can profoundly affect patients and their families socially, financially, and psychologically. Sherwood et al. (2017) indicate that complications can affect the patients’ finances and their families in that the patient will spend a lot of money treating the condition. Moreover, the illness can prevent the patient from doing his/her daily activities such as going to work, which impacts the individual economically. In regards to psychology, the patient may develop stress because of financial constraints. Furthermore, the pain caused by the illness can cause depression and anxiety. The family might experience stress because their loved one is in anguish. Socially, elimination complexities can prevent a patient from attending social events because of hygiene. The patient can fear that he/she will be isolated and mocked because of their condition.  

Nurses play a significant role in supporting patients psychologically and emotionally. They can aid patients psychologically by providing them all the information necessary to get better. For instance, nurses should provide patients all the information concerning prescriptions (Tan et al., 2017). Nurses can psychologically and emotionally support patients by calling them frequently to inquire about their health and remaining them the often visit the hospital as suggested by the doctor. Furthermore, nurses should provide patients hope by using encouraging and powerful words that boost the patient’s spirit and self-esteem. Sherwood et al. (2017) indicate that nurses can also help patients by assessing their psychological conditions and recommend a psychiatrist if they find it necessary. Nevertheless, nurses can also provide counseling when evaluating and identifying that the patient is not in a more critical condition.
