I have been hired to take care of a patient with prolonged neurological paralysis. What special considerations should I know to give the best care?

Comprehensive care. Long-term care needs patience and knowledge: important points are: attention to care of mouth, eyes, skin, bladder and nutrition. Avoid dvts that may be a source of embolism. Avoid decubitus ulcers. Watch nutrition. They may need a peg if they have dysphagia. Prevent falls. If iincontinent use pampers or condom catheter. Treat pain. Move from side to side every two hours. Pe will facilitate all.
