1. Nursing Diagnosis: Impaired Physical Mobility related to the function of neurological damage.

Nursing Interventions:
  • Assess the functional capabilities and severity of abnormalities.
  • Maintain body alignment (using a board bed, air mattress or a standard board as indicated.

Nursing Interventions:
  • Monitor or record the neurological status as often as possible and compare it to standard or normal state.
  • Monitor vital signs.
  • Record the data changes such as the blindness of vision, or visual field disturbances in perception.
  • Assess the higher functions, such as speech function.
  • Put your head slightly elevated position and the anatomical position (neutral).
  • Maintain a state of bed rest, creating a peaceful environment, limit the activities of visitors or patients as indicated.
