YOUR WEEKEND NCLEX TIP
After hip replacement surgery, the patient should avoid these three positions until fully recovered:
Bending more than 90 degrees at the waist (for example, bending over to pick something up)
Internally rotating the leg
Adducting the legs (including crossing one’s legs)
The device seen above helps to prevent the latter two positions from occurring during sleep
