Just starting my preceptorship and was wondering what you guys do to assess neurological function?
Let's say you have to do neuro checks every 15 min.
I'm sure you're not going to get out that piece of cotton and whisp it across their face and then ckeck the same spots with the end of a sharp tongue blade.
I know the obvious is A/O x 1-3 and pupils but what else should be covered so I don't miss anything but at the same time maximizing my time with the pt. Or say I have to do those 15 min. checks..........what do you do?
Thanks in advance.
