    I am an LPN and I take care of an ambulatory quadriplegic in his home. He is having a knee replaced this week, and will be d/c home from the hospital. Any tips on what I will need to do for his care. I typically perform I & O q1-2hrs while he is sleeping and bowel program in the am. I will be with him the day he comes home and then the next few nights.

    His injury was not complete. And over 4 years he has had intensive therapy and regained the ability to walk. He is quite an amazing person! And in better shape physically than I am.
