3). Does Ms. James use any sensory aides?
 
4) What does she rate her pain?
 
5) What is her MORSE Fall Risk Score?
 
Review the client’s History and Physical, what indications can you see place this patient at risk for mobility issues or falls?
 
[LEARNER ACTION: In a misc nursing note identify risks for mobility and falls. Explain her score on the MORSE scale.]
