Problem one and three seem to be related to each other. Pain can affect sleep. Also, did you have any assessment data to add to problem one i.e. mattress type, hardness, how old?, positioning, etc.
I was a case manager for PLWA for six years before I went to nursing school and became a nurse. I learned how to write service plans by attending trainings given by NYS department of health.
