You are a nurse responsible for 4 acute care patients, a 60 year old female with an acute stroke admitted 14 hours ago with no surgical intervention, a 72 year old male post op for wound debridement, a 36 year old female transferred from the ICU 4 hours ago admitted for new onset seizures, and a 58 year old male admitted with cellulitis. Which patient do you assess first?
The first patient you would see is the 36 year old female with new onset seizures to be sure that all safety measures are in place in the event of a seizure (seizure pads, suction set up, and bed alarm on). The patient you would see second is the 60 year old female with the acute stroke so that you can perform a baseline neuro assessment in order to monitor for changes. The third patient you would see is the 72 year old post op patient to assess vitals and monitor for infection. Lastly your patient with cellulitis is your most stable patient.
