A client who had a total hip replacement 2 days ago and needs blood glucose monitoring

a nurse from medical-surgical unit floated to the orthopedic unit should be given clients with stable condition, and those whose care are similar to her training and experience. A client who is 2-day postop is more likely to be on stable condition. And the medical-surgical unit nurse is competent in monitoring blood glucose.
