Surviving Life-Threatening Illness: Keys to Optimal Nursing Care

Moorman, Sandra BSN, RN

Continued Education
Collapse Box


Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a rare yet life-altering infection. Disfigurement and death ensue without accurate diagnosis and treatment. Educational awareness can assist nurses to advocate for differential diagnosis, immediate treatment, and plan of care. This article examines the experience of a mother with NF, application of Neuman's Systems Model (NSM) to address her healing needs, and nursing practice guided by one's personal worldview. NSM was chosen because it is holistic and concise and can be utilized from a Christian perspective.
