A spinal cord injured patient has several problems and complications related to his injury. So, how to cope up with them easily and how a nurse can provide better care in preventing complications of spinal cord injury.
Honestly, it sounds like you need some work on the critical thinking aspect of nursing, and looking at the patient holistically. If this is an actual patient, you need to look at THIS patient, not just categorize them and come up with some textbook answer. Your instructors shouldn't accept textbook answers, either. You're giving very broad, general information, and nothing about one specific patient, if that's the goal.
If you're asking how to care for spinal cord injury patients in general, it still varies. You need to consider the stuff you've posted, the textbook stuff, but you also need to consider what's going on with THAT patient, including psychosocial issues.
