While patients are in the critical care areas, hyperglycemia occurs in more than 50% of patients with or without diabetes. This education time is a crucial for the patients and families, because their attention to better health is heightened by their reason for being in a critical care unit. Nurses can be leaders in starting them in the right direction for diabetes self-management by understanding the basics of diabetes care and education. This article discusses how to equip a patient with the skills they need to live with diabetes.
