Dorothea Orem: Self-Care Deficit Theory of Nursing Credentials and Background Dorothea Elizabeth Orem was born in 1914 in Baltimore, Maryland. She graduated Seton High School in Baltimore in 1931and graduated from the Providence Hospital School of Nursing in Washington, D.C in 1934. Orem continued her education at the Catholic University of America to earn her bachelors in Nursing Education in 1939, and a Masters in Nursing Education in 1945 (Medical Archives, 2018). Orem’s nursing career consisted of a variety of titles, positions, and facilities. She gained experience in various departments such as pediatrics, adult medical-surgical units, emergency departments, operating rooms and private duties.
She believes that nursing interventions are key to nursing care. Watson’s nursing theories express that the mind, body and spirit of the patient should be taken into consideration. I agree with Watsons that while providing care the nurse should consider care base on the patient as a whole and not just focus on the disorder. I was taught to use Maslow’s hierarchy of need while planning and providing care for my patients. Maslow’s hierarchy is use to prioritize a patient need from life treating issues to love and belong.

King’s theory uses the implication of family to help patients meet these goals while also providing

Low BP reading can result in low blood flow to the graft site; conversely, high BP can damage the graft due to elevated pressure. Equally important, assessing the skin color, temperature and the pulse of the surgical limb by using a Doppler ultrasound and report findings to the bedside nurse

The intensity of the negative emotions should diminish during this treatment and a positive emotion will root the patient.
