seizure precaution


hi everyone this is about tetanus again. My pt is under seizure precaution. idont know why maybe due to an increase in cns activity. Im trying to formulate an appropriate nursing diagnosis

risk for trauma/suffocation related to possible occurence of seizures(grrr sounds bad)

I would use risk for injury r/t (whatever the patient is doing that puts them at risk that isn't a medical diagnosis)
