I am in my last semester and I am currently doing clinicals on a Tele floor. We have to write a graded careplan for a post-MI or post-CABG pt. I have had two CABG pt. but both of them were just getting ready to go home.
My instructor said to write the careplan as if the patient was fresh out of surgery.
My question is ....What is the biggest priority for a CABG pt. who is a fresh post-op sent to the Tele unit from CCU?
Thanks in advance!
