The inadequate consumption of alcohol is a major problem in our current society, and its consequences can cause irreparable damage in the health of the person, particularly when associated with conditions such as HIV, given that the ability of self-care and control for infection transmission can be affected.
This case presents a 36-year-old man, an immigrant with HIV and alcoholism, who attended the Emergency Unit due to oedemas in lower limbs and testicles; he was diagnosed with acute alcohol-related hepatitis / dropsical decompensation. Nursing assessment was conducted using the Human Needs Model by Virginia Henderson. NANDA taxonomy was used for the diagnostic stage, and NOC and NIC taxonomies, respectively, for determining results and interventions. The nursing diagnoses identified were: Ineffective Management of Health and Risk for Complicated Immigration Transition; and Nausea as collaborative problem. Although the target score was only achieved in one of the indicators associated with food intake, the final score could be increased, representing an improvement in the health status of the patient.
