Designed to maximize functional independence, a Life Care Plan is a comprehensive analysis and projection of lifetime medical treatment and non-medical care needs and associated costs for an individual with major injury and/or chronic medical condition. The nursing process is the foundation of nurse life care planning. Examples of catastrophic injuries are acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple trauma injuries, burns, amputations, chronic pain, and birth injuries.
Life care plans can be used to assess damages or future needs and costs in workers’ compensation, personal injury and medical malpractice.
