In collaboration with the Illinois College of Nursing, AAPACE has developed the following care guidelines to assist Licensed Practical Nurse’s and Registered Nurse’s in understanding and managing alterations in a patient or residents health condition within the post-acute care setting. It is important to note that these guidelines are a supplemental support tool for nurses to reference as needed. These guidelines are not all inclusive and are only to help guide (not replace) a nurses clinical decision making process on what interventions may be best for their patient.
