Hi, I am new to this site and I am currently studying to gain registration with the CPNBC. I am nearing completion of my pre-reg studies as I am an IEN. I have a case study that I am unsure about, having asked several colleagues, without much success. The case study and the question is as follows:
Provide a timeline for your nursing care, which includes details of your rationales and decision-making priorities for each skill/ assessment. Include your head to toe assessment charting.
Diet sips to DAT.
Mobilize as tolerated.
Vital signs with motion and sensation checks lower limbs Q1 hr x 4, Q2hr x 4, Q4 hr x 4, routine.
IV D5NS @ 100cc/ hr.
PCA Morphine 1-2 mg/hr prn.
Gravol 12.5-25 mg iv q3-4 hr prn.
Indocid suppository 100 mg bd.
Hemovac to closed suction; D/C on post-op day 2 if drainage less than 50 cc/ 12 hr.
Foley catheter prn.
Change or reinforce dressing if soiled prn.
Change dressing post-op day 3 before discharge.
Any help would be greatly received.
