Care of Unconscious Patient

In order to optimize care of unconscious patients at home, SRCF has a comprehensive approach which involves finding the cause of unconsciousness (medical records, interaction with family, consulting doctor, etc.), formulating a care plan in collaboration with the patient’s consulting physician, through our team of Nurses, Medical Assistants, Physiotherapists, Dietician, etc. The care plan involves:

  • Maintaining patient’s airway
  • Protecting the patient from falling off the bed
  • Maintaining fluid balance and managing nutritional needs
  • Maintaining skin integrity
  • Preventing urinary retention
  • Incontinence care
  • Providing sensory stimulation
  • Identifying potential complications (Respiratory Distress, Pneumonia, Aspiration, Bed Sores, etc.)
  • Support too family
  • Physiotherapy
  • Assessing progress
