One Health Variation



Question 1.

One of the most important nursing care considerations for the patient would be during the drug administration, which is a process starting from the patient’s assessment before drug intake and after the administration to watch his progress. It is important that a nursing assistant assess the patient’s level of consciousness and pulse before administering any morphine. (Telford 2010, 2020). You may need to apply physical stimulation to avoid hypoventilation. When the respiratory rate is <10/min, it would be important to assess sedation levels to advise on subsequent doses that may need to be reduced by 25–50% (Telford, 2020). Morphine may also cause depression in the central nervous system, leading to fatalities (Zelga, 2021). Registered nurses should monitor the medication and look out for side effects such as respiratory depression or other complications.

The nurse must check the IV line before administering the morphine.
