This segment focuses on a patient with an ischemic brain attack who experiences a completed stroke without early intervention. Acute care nursing interventions designed to protect the patient from complications are outlined. Eight nursing diagnoses and specific nursing actions appropriate in caring for stabilized patients with a completed brain attack are discussed: risk for altered tissue perfusion, risk for injury, risk for aspiration, impaired verbal communication, impaired mobility, self-care deficit, urinary incontinence, and altered thought process.
