Traumatic brain injury survivors often require round-the-clock monitoring and extensive treatment to reach maximum medical improvement. Not only is this process arduous and challenging, but it is also financially crippling. A traumatic brain injury nursing care plan from Cardinal LifeCare Consulting can be instrumental for assessing or critiquing damages during personal injury litigation and settlement negotiations.

What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury Nursing Care Plan?
A traumatic brain injury nursing care plan is a document that outlines a patient’s medical diagnoses, information about the patient, suggested nursing interventions, justifications for the suggested nursing interventions, and the patient’s response to the nursing interventions. These plans are based on an evaluation of the patient’s condition, the standard of care required, the latest research, and data analysis.
Elements of a Traumatic Brain Injury Nursing Care Plan
It is important to remember that a plan must be tailored to each patient based on his or her unique conditions and needs. Creating a nursing care plan for a traumatic brain injury survivor requires input from a specialist with the relevant experience and credentials.
It is likely that a nursing care plan for a patient with a TBI will include:
- Health education;
- Pain medication;
- Memory training;
- Speech therapy;
- Long-term rehabilitation;
- Emotional support and therapy;
- Surgeries and treatments; and
- Home modifications.
The cost of these interventions can be prohibitively expensive for patients, which is why attorneys who are representing victims of traumatic brain injury should get a life care plan drafted to prove the cost of suggested interventions and why they are necessary.
