For the GI issues, I would guess the patient is at risk for constipation as a result of immobility or inactivity. Or maybe the GI issues could be a side effect of pain medications.

There's not enough information in your question to help you. What is her background, injuries, assessment, etc etc. Why is she bed ridden for 3 months?

First you need to think of the impact of an accident...if it was a car accident, the pt might have a pelvic injury making them inmobile...GI problems could be internal bleeding.

I do not think you provided enough info for a valid reply.
