Do you have a nursing care plan book? You can get a lot of ideas from them. What have you come up with so far?

Be careful about calling yourself a nurse if you are not one.

I don't even know what "vascular stiffening" is. (?) Is that like neuropathy? PVD? CAD? Reynaud's?

Keeping the legs raised to reduce edema? Never sitting at

a 90 degree angle. Wearing support hose/TED hose.

Do you have a Sparks and Taylor care plan book? They're really helpful and they also have the rationales too.
