Chloramphenicol Nursing Diagnosis and Collaborative Problems

Patients who take chloramphenicol may also experience rash, fever, and dyspnea. Neonates experience gray syndrome.

Here are the common nursing diagnoses that are related to a patient who is taking chloramphenicol.

• Fluid volume deficit related to anorexia, nausea, and vomiting

• Altered protection related to dose-related bone marrow depression

• Altered bowel elimination (diarrhea)

• Altered thought processes (confusion, delirium) related to neurotoxic reactions; sensory-perceptual disturbances related to optic neuritis (blurred vision, loss of vision, eye pain); and to peripheral neuritis (tingling, numbness, and burning pain of the hands and feet)
