    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.
    Ted stockings.

    Any help would be greatly received.

    Thanks, Nick.
