Does anyone have references for best practices that direct nursing care following the d/c of mag, for pre-term labor, or for seizure prevention? Trying to guide practice for that magical 24 hour mark. What monitoring (if any) is needed following d/c'ing mag....

Continue to monitor for pre-eclampsia symptoms, as well as symptoms of mag toxicity (check output, DTRs, etc). Pt should be on fall precautions.
