Do you know why is this patient having leukocytosis? is there an underlying condition causing it? like bacterial or viral infection? or maybe cancer? then you can formulate your diagnosis and iterventions based on that.

This is a new pt (admission with generalized weakness, bandemia, history of hypertension, diabetes mellitus) that all I know.

Look for interventions relating to infection/infection control, especially with her DM.
