Professional Nursing Care To Patients

You get used with patients and the hospital. It ‘s also a hard work. Much can be done to transmit the patient, such as bathing, personal hygiene, feeding, cleaning, etc. It can be very challenging.

Come, you must map the toilet, change the sheets (sometimes) get water, transport patients if necessary (I did a lot of runs radiography). Sometimes you have a single patient, because they have special needs (usually one day very boring), table, will bp, O2 Sat Respere impulse, which I mentioned, you’ll Graphics? Write. Your days are often long and difficult. Mostly understaffed. I only remember 2 times in 2 years when we had a low census, and I was sent home on the PTO (paid leave is not something you want, take time away holiday). Sometimes you’ll have your blood sugar in the blood. I helped an RN with a code only once (fear). Sometimes you have to do Post Mordem care. You may have to feed people who can not feed themselves. There are actually a lot you do. But I’d much rather have something to do when bored out of my mind on a 12-hour shift.

Hospital aides are responsible for different tasks. In those days, will perform / support for personal hygiene, change the sheets have read, not VS, FS,to contribute to food if necessary to answer the call lights, so that patients are kept clean and dry, to circumvent the patient should be safely mixed patients, and (a rare kind of me) to help care tasks such as the Foley in place. Our jobs overlap a lot, because apparently a lot of what I’ve listed the things I do the same.

In my hospital, we have the equivalent of the PCT to CNA. They care pt direct, vital signs, I & O, blood sugar, blood draws, putting in Foley, ECG, bath and linen change, answer call lights, etc. They are a great help and many of them are nursing students. I worked as a PCT while nursing school and I think it was a great help for me to get comfortable on the floor.

Do not forget to communicate with nurses. Tell them, if a patient needs something that can not be done. is outside the scope of practice. Tell them you’re going to NS, and can probably look for some procedures ….
