Our objective was to identify the most frequent nursing diagnoses in a gynecological admission unit. The defining characteristics were surveyed from the data reported in the nursing case history and the patient files of 30 patients. The nursing diagnoses were found according to the revised NANDA Taxionomy I. The five most frequent nursing diagnoses were: risk for infection (30 cases); risk for pain (24 cases); health-seeking behaviors (11cases); fear (10 cases) and stress incontinence (5 cases).
