Answer

See the list below:

  • Frequent neurologic assessment to detect any progression of neurologic deficit, particularly weakness, is required.

  • Postsurgical patients require monitoring of neurologic status as well.

  • If the patient has a deficit from spinal cord damage, nursing attention for skin care, catheter care, and physical therapy may be necessary.
