2. Allow him to go on his own
Mr MacDonald falls and injures himself. You later hear that he has fractured his leg and is very poorly.
- Mr MacDonald was unaware that he could not walk unaided. So when he got up and attempted to walk he fell to the floor. We must consider that as a result of his stroke he had little insight into his limb weakness and inability to walk.
- We must consider that poor balance, leg weakness and loss of co-ordination can affect the person’s ability to move.
