I am a new hire on med-surg floor. I know I need to be alert and monitor many things during my shift. I would like to hear from the seasoned nurses their opinion regarding monitoring patients' status on med-surg floor. What are my top priorities r/t monitoring post-op patients?

Stargazer is right, level of conc. is the better indicator of oversedation, and I do this all the time when I work in sicu, also in er when we do a procedure.Rod RN, BSN, CEN, CCRN, CFRN, TNCC, EMT-P, MICN, like I have said before its amazing how many letters you can get behind your name I also have med-surg, and CRNI.
